    I just hooked up the Toshiba SD5900 using Component Video Cable and i get video drop out on Flashing scenes..could it be the Cables?

    I selected Progressive vs Interlaced and everytime there is a flash of light it drops out.

    I also selected Auto Detect for Video Type vs Film/Video.

    Please help!

    thanks

    Angelo

    It might be your TV; many can't handle a sudden burst of light.

    correction- the Dvd player is the 5700 NOT 5900.

    Angelo,

    The Hitachi 53SDX01B had exactly this problem with some progressive scan players. Hitachi did come up with a solution, issued a service bulletin, and incorporated the fix on later production sets.

    I'd suggest you call Hitachi customer service.
