Usually a tv that doesn't "see" video on the S-video will not even "switch" to it.  It just goes to the next Svideo, RCA etc..  
Make sure your cable is not damaged. (on both ends) Does the svideo source and svideo cable work with another tv or video device?
31GT740 Manual From the Manual:   " WHO•INPUT In TV mode, press WHO•INPUT to toggle through the available Video Input channels (VID/SVID and the current channel). In SAT mode, press to select available channel lists.
Using the WHO•INPUT Button Use the WHO•INPUT button to toggle through the available input sources (VID and the current channel) and view the content from the component you have connected to the TV. 1. Press TV to place the remote in TV mode. Make sure that the content from the component is turned ON. 2. Press WHO•INPUT to tune to the available input source and view the component. 3. Press WHO•INPUT again to tune back to the channel you were previously watching.  "

I finally had a chance to see if my laptop would stream to another screen and it did. The cable is brand new so I suspect it works. I think it is my TV.

How to get OSD on TV for a Pioneer Receiver


OSD for on your TV for a Pioneer Receiver setup menu. (It doesn’t matter what make your TV is).

Connect the MONITOR OUT video jack on the receiver to a video input on your TV. Use a standard RCA video cable to the composite video jack.

Turn your TV on and put your TV onto AV3. Turn your receiver on, then on your remote control push the receiver button (this is not the on/off button, there is another button with receiver written on it) then push the setup button on your remote control. You should get the OSD menu on your TV for the settings for your receiver.

I need to know how to program this tv so that the cable will come in. It used to work but unknown buttons were pushed on the remote and now the cable will not work on this tv.


Somebody probably hit one of the input buttons and changed the input. Try hitting input and going through the different options. Give each one a few seconds and see if the cable comes back on.

I have a DVD player (Digitron) which I want to connect to my new Phillips TV but I don't know how to make the connection. Someone told me that I must use the remote control to do this but there is no


First with the TV and the DVD player off, connect the cables with the best possible connection that you can. The cable with the red,white and yellow plugs on both ends is a Composite Video cable. If this is the best output on your DVD player, connect the cable to those jacks and to the matching color connections for a composite (or A/V) in on your TV. Alternatively, use two (usually the red and white plugs) for your audio connection and get a separate S-Video cable and connect that to your TV and DVD player. Composite and S-video both carry only an standard definition (480p) video output.

Your DVD player may have other connections. You will need to buy the other cables to connect these but you will get a better picture (high definition video) if you can use component or HDMI cables. The component video cable uses three plugs (usually red, blue and green) to carry the video signal. You also use the RCA audio cable (red/white) to carry the audio between the TV and the DVD player. HDMI cables carry the video and sound on one cable and looks somewhat like a large USB cable (the side that connects to the computer - rectangular). These cables are available at many stores that sell electronics but you can find them at better prices at online stores that sell cables.

Once you have these cables, turn on the TV and look for a button on your remote (or the TV) that says Source or Input. Press this button several times until you are at the input that corresponds to the one that your DVD player is connected to. (Some of my TVs have more than one of a given input; so you have to match AV1 or AV2 for example.) Then turn on the DVD player. (Note for some TVs it is possible to delete inputs from the source list when they aren't used. You may need to edit this list to see the correct inputs.) If this doesn't help, try turning off the TV then turn on the DVD player first and then the TV and locate the correct input.

Without knowing the TV or DVD player models, I can't identify all of your inputs and how to determine the best one for you to use. If you add a comment with the model information, I'll give you additional assistance if I can.

I hope this helps.

(the inputs on all of my TVs have labels in a small font. Often each input choice is surrounded by a box so that you don't accidentally plug in the audio cable at Component 2 and the video cable at Component 1. You may want a magnifying glass to make sure that you correctly identify the source that you need to find in the input list.)

Having trouble getting tv set up. It has on the screan No Signal


When a TV says "no signal" it means it cannot find a video sync present on the input which is currently selected. Knowing your TV Manufacturer and model would help tremendously, as would knowing what it is hooked up to.
For starters, it could be one of a few things:
  • It is selected to an input to which there is no source connected [SOLUTION] make sure the TV is set to view the correct input (INPUT or SOURCE) button.
  • The cable between the source and the TV is bad, or the plugs are not properly seated at both ends of the cable [SOLUTION] Make sure that BOTH ends of the cable are pushed all the way in, and securely seated. If that doesn't work, try replacing the cable with a different one
  • You have the cables connected incorrectly (for example, a composite video signal (yellow) will fit into a left or right audio connector (red or white). If you are plugging in by reaching around but can't see, this could be a problem. I have also seen people plug video inputs into outputs (many TVs have a video loop out, so if you plug something IN to that you aren't going to get picture. [SOLUTION] Make sure you physically inspect the inputs on the TV and outputs on the source
  • It is trying to use it's internal tuner (if it has a digital tuner) and there is no cable or antenna feed attached [SOLUTION] make sure the TV is set to view the correct input (INPUT or SOURCE) button.
  • The source you are trying to watch (DVD player, etc) is not turned on [SOLUTION] verify that the source is plugged in and outputting video
  • The TV is defective. [SOLUTION] take it back . . . its a lemon.

Saying that there is no signal for cable even though cable is plugged in


I can give you a couple things to try, but you may need to provide more info like the model of the TV. New or old TV. New install? What was old TV; digital or tube? What kind of cable?

Touch the TV/VCR button or input button on the remote. Make sure you select the input option that matches your input. For example, my cable comes thru a multi cable box and happens to be "video 4".

Did you run the automatic search for channels?

Check your remote for a button that says, Progressive Scan, or PSCAN. Push it and then play your movie. Should work. Worked for ours. Good luck.
