TV - DVD Interference Problem

First of all I can't plug my DVD player into the TV directly; it has to run through the VCR. When I tried to play a DVD today the top portion and bottom portion of the screen blinked blue, like there was something wrong with the tracking, except for DVDs don't have tracking. Any idea how to fix this?

Re: TV - DVD Interference Problem

Do you have any other DVDs to try? there is a copy guard put on dvds called "macro vision" maybe this is the problem. Usualy you will notice this when you try and run the dvd threw a VCR not threw the TV. If you are running it threw the VCR by mistake then try direct threw the tv. This is to keep piracy down.

How to get dvd on tv

There are generally 2 ways to connect a dvd player to a tv.1 If you have 3 rca connectors on the back of your tv (they are color coded yellow for video and white and red for audio left and right channels respectively) and the same connectors on the back or side of the dvd player.Use rca cables to connect the dvd player to the tv,connecting yellow to yellow white to white and red to red.Using the remote put your tv on video.Put the channel selector on the dvd/vcr player on video or L1 or E1 (depending on what brand dvd/vcr you have).2 connect a rf (coaxial cable from the rf output of the dvd/vcr and connect this directly to the rf (antenna) input to your tv.Put the tv on channel 3.Play the dvd/vcr to see if you have the video.If not put the tv on channel 4.Some dvd/vcr's put their signals out on channel 3 and others on channel 4.Good luck.

No video audio connecters

If you have a VCR with RCA inputs and coax (cable) output to TV, try plugging the DVD players RCA outputs (L/R audio, composite video) to VCR RCA inputs. Then select the DVD input on the VCR and it shoud play just as a the VCR does. If you don't have a VCR, an RF modulator might be needed, but a VCR would probably be cheaper.

Grundig TV - Tuning DVD & VCR

Hi there!
If the DVD recorder has an RF out then you should be able to tune it on UHF bandwidth. The cable should run from the RF Out on the recorder to RF on the TV. Switch the recorder on, put in a DVD and press play before tuning. Some DVD's require a disc before a Menu appears. Good Luck, Regards, JUS004

If the picture is OK with DVD and VCR, then perhaps the problem lies elsewhere other than the TV. It could either be your:
1. aerial antenna or
2. cable connection.

Aerials can re re-oriented/realigned to improve reception or reduce interference while the cable would require that you get in touch with your cable provider. In some instances cable problems could be loose connector at the back of the TV. Additionally, interference can be caused by other electrical/electronic devices. Past experience has shown me that even a 2-Stroke lawn mover/grass cutter has these effects.

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.
