Question about Pioneer DV-588A-S DVD Player

Lost pink component of color

My TV set is OK in full color. But the DVD player, once after a long time not in use (beroreit , it has been always OK during1.5 year), started to loose pink component of color: the opening screen has the word PIONEER in pink on black backgound, but this time it appeared gray, and movie heroes looked like dead with yellow-grayish faces and bodies. I turned the player off, waited 15 to 20 min., then turned it back on; first 5 minutes, the pink component was present, then disappeared again into gray. Repeated attempt gave same result.

    You suggest that only after 18 months of VERY MODERATE usage (3-3.5 hours/day, and even not every day) of a new DVD player, the lens may be weared out?? I cannot believe it.

The problem is not the lens, it reads the disc, the lens is OK. The problem you have resides in the video codec circuit, this is not anything you can fix yourself without some good knoledge of electronic troubleshooting and the proper test equipment. Even after a few months this can happen, it is a random part failure that is not common, but can happen. You just had some bad luck with this unit. You can take it in for repair, but it will cost you over $100 to get it fixed. If you paid less than $200 for it, you should just get a new one.

Sorry for the bad news, but it is the most likely problem with it. I fix these for a living, so I am not just guessing at the problem.

Good luck, and let me know if I can be of any more help for you.

Hi,

Your post is descriptive:

  • it is not a lens reader problem since the firmware display (Pioneer logo at startup) also looses color;
  • it initially seems to be heat related;
  • pls check if it has a switch for PAL/NTSC. try switching over repeatedly if it has one;
  • you may need to open the unit and check internal components. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My Sharp Aquos BD-24 Disc Player has been working awesome (for all my dvd's, including bluray) since I first installed it over a year ago. This week I've tried 3-4 dvd's including bluray and the picture...


Its highly likely a cable issue. You know which cable connection is wrong if are using component in and out. But change to a new connection cable whatever it is and I think it will be solved

Cannott get a picture on my tv from my DVD/VHS COMBO


Your DVD player should be connected to either the Yellow White Red connections on your TV set (same color to same color -- dvd OUT to tv IN )

OR it should be connected using the RF cables and connected inline AFTER the Direct TV Box....the box would block the DVD; and possibly the Direct TV Master box would apply 19 Volts to the DVD modulator....destroying the modulator.

Always OUTput to INput on the connections...


Also try with a new set of connections. make sure all the ports are ok.

Why is there no color


If using component video out please make sure that all cables are firmly and securely connected to the player and the TV.
-Component = Green/Blue/Red cables or jacks.

If using the video out please make sure that the TV color settings are not set to grey or black and white.

If everything is connected properly I would recommend to connect the player to another TV to see if the same issue will occur. Also check the color settings on the DVD player under picture mode.

JVC XV-SA602 player - I just get red and blue wavy lines on my TV, but can get audio. I've checked my component video connections and they seem fine, but cannot get video or even the menu to come up on TV....


I found the problem, or at least the solution. I set the switch on the back of the DVD to "remote" and reset the TV settings on the remote (although they had not changed and were still OK). With the TV/Video switch set to "colorstream", I finally got the video from the DVD. This was odd, because my TV says it does not accept progressive scan and my settings have always been with the switch on 480i on the DVD. The only change has been a added cable TV DVR box capable of HD (although TV is not HD). Does not seem like that should affect things since the cable box just outputs to the TV. But, at any rate, this regained our picture.

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


ruettab,

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

cheers,
mark

Lost manual...I cannot get DVD or VCR to record


You need to decide which set of inputs or outputs you want to use. To record, and watch what you have recorded on your TV, you will need TWO sets of audio/visual patch cords. One for recording and the other for playing. Let's start with the recording. Look for the Line in or video in plugs on your DVD-VCR unit. Some recorders have separate inputs for the VCR and DVD. Others let you select with the remote. Usually Line 1 is at the back and Line 2 is on the front. Your remote will have "recording source" to let you select, or sometimes you can use the channel up and down arrows to select your input source. Your remote will also allow you to select either the DVD or VCR for recording. Connect the Yellow plug to the Video In socket, and the red and white plugs to audio in., Connect the other end of the cord to the TV or cable box. Yellow goes to Video Out, red and white go to audio out. Recording from the cable box is much easier because you wiull always have a signal going into the DVD-VCR recorder no matter what happens at the TV.  Now look for the Video out connection on the DVD-VCR recorder. Connect the Yellow plug to video out and the red and white plugs to audio out. Ignore the other connections at this point. They are for RGB component video. Your DVD -VCR should have one output for both functions. Use that one.
Now connect that cord to a Video one or Video 2 input on your TV.
Test the set-up. Play a DVD or a VHS tape and try to bring it in using the TV remote.
Then turn on a program and try to record it on  the DVD-VCR, then play it back.
This sounds very complicated, but all that's involved are two patch cords with three plugs on each end - 12 connections in all and color-coded. YELLOW is always video.

Hooked up my dvd player no color


Go to the settings menu in the dvd player. You will need to change the output settings to
match the output you are using. Whether it is s-video, component, or hdmi . This will fix the color issue.

Try going into player's menu, and set video out or TV type to NTSC.
It might have switched to PAL, or disc is PAL and player is set to any.
