What is the model number of the Toshiba unit?

Check the scart connections are plugged in correctly.

The Toshiba is RD-XV48DTKB and can you tell me where the scart should be connected thanks for your help

Just to see if it's working connect the AV1 on the Toshiba to the TV using a scart lead

It also has a HDMI output which you could use to connect it to your tv

I cannot thank you enough for your advice, connected a acart and it works fine, what would we do without people like you always willing to help, again many thanks all the best Jean
