Question about Pioneer DV-588A-S DVD Player

3 Answers

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.

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

Dvd color mostly blue and pink, colors look weird


try connecting thru an hdmi cable from your dvd player to your tv, check the colors then.. I'd say you have crossed your component cables.. match the connector letters a/b/x? and plug them in one after each other.

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.

Hope It's resolve all Problem,

Hi,Would you pls check the connection that you have made between TV and DVD player..?
2xRCA (white+Red) will go to Audio IN sockets of TV in addition to 1xRCA Yellow video cable goes to "Video IN socket of TV..
if the connections are right than you must select the right source on TV ,as AV1 ,AV2 which corresponds to the cable input sockets of your TV.

OK no problem here. I can help. First reconnect the DVD Player to the tv using the Compoment cables. Match Green to Green,Red to Red and Blue to Blue.. If this is done correctly then you will have normal looking picture. If the picture looks like it is missing the RED color then switch both Red cables. The pix should look normal. Then connect the RED and White audio cables to the audio inputs . Now the Pinkish color is a result of the DVD Player not being set to the "Progressive" setting in the DVD Player Menu. It will help to connect a set of COMPOSITE cables from the DVD Player to the TV's Composite Input. Those are the Yellow,Red and White inputs on both the tv and the DVD Player. This will allow you to see the DVD player menu in case you cannot see the menu while in the Component input. The Pinkish picture should go to a Normal 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

HOOKED UP MY NEW TV WITH COMPONENT CABES TO THE DVD. THE COLOR IS PINK. CABLES ARE NEW. I KNOW I HAVE THE COLOR CABLES MATCHED CORRECTLY. COULD IT BE THE CABLE OR DVD.


The problem is that the tv is set to 480I or 480P. Try changing the setting to 720P or 1080I and the pink color should dissapear.

Make sure component cables match colors between Television and DVD player. It should be TV input to DVD output. Try to play at least two DVDs to make sure its not a single DVD that may be having an issue. Also, adjust your television's picture setting to make sure its set to normal. Also access your DVD players menu to make sure the setting are set to normal as well.If it doesn't correct the problem, use a different component input on your television. If problem persists, you may need to contact the DVD player manufacturer to see if its still under warranty and not defective. Good Luck.

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.
