    I have the same problem with the VCR part of my combo player. I can see/hear DVD's just fine but I can't see videos. I can hear the sound but can't see the picture. I have checked and rechecked the cable connections and they all seem to be fine. When we first plugged it all in it worked fine. But, the next time we tried it, we only got sound, no picture. Could there be some button we've switched that should not have been switched? Please help!!!

    I've got the same problem on a Samsung DVD-HD950. Connected to TV via HDMI the TV gets sound but no picture. Taking the DVD out, but leaving the device on, I held the fast froward button the machine (not remote) for about five seconds. This is supposed to reset the video to the factory default. After that I had video back.

Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!

My Insignia Blu-ray DVD player and our Panasonic DVD player are playing only the sound with no picture. We put the correct imputs on the TV. They were playing fine a few days ago. We have Charter cable....


Sounds like the input board on the tv fried. (45-65$ fix if that's it)

Try the same two devices on different inputs , ie change from hdmi to component , or just use hdmi 2 instead of one, you get the idea.

Make sure the devices dont work on other inputs on the tv.

Then take a different device , like a 3rd dvd player and try it.

If nothing works in that input but works in other inputs the tv input board might (likely) need replacing.

If the third fresh device does work in that input , it is both dvd players or the cable you are using. (try to use a different cable in the tests than the one you have already used. )

My DVD has no picture but has sounds ,on my sony bravia tv i have done every thing but still there is no picture


Please check if the DVD players progressive scan is enabled. If it is disable it. You will get instruction in the last chapter of the owners manual under troubleshooting. Or find out how to do a factory reset, because all DVD players come with progressive scan disabled from the factory.

Region free?


This will fix change the dvb312 to region free for an individual dvd. Must be repeated each time you want region free.
Insert the different region dvd.
A message will appear on the screen "check region" (or something like that)
On you remote control press the "display" button. Quickly press the number buttons, "1", "2" and "3". It should now let you play the dvd.
It has worked on mine which was bought in 2003. We have watched a ton of region 2 movies. Good luck.

Created and burned a DVD with imac (iDVD) software. Plays fine on computer, but music skips when I play on Zenith DVD Player. Tried burning at slower speed, but same issue. Can anyone help? Thanks.


The Audio file may not be supported on the DVD player, or try another disk in the DVD player (another movie) see if the sound still skips

you could check the red and white audio cables (or HDMI if you have it) make sure they are not loose or disconnected

S-Video Problem.


You need the isolate the problem:

1) Plug the DVD player into a TV
through the same S-Video cable

If the movie plays on the TV, then
the DVD player and cable are OK.

2) Plug another source of S-video signals
(if you have one) into the computer input.

If it works, than the computer hardware & software are OK

3) The third and most likely possibility is that the DISK is
copy protected, and the obedient DVD player is adding
MACROVISION analog copy protection into the S-video
output stream.

S-Video is an analog video format that has two separate
channels: 1 for composite B&W video (i.e. Y, or luminance)
and the other for the color (Chroma). Sound is separate.

Macrovision analog protection technology corrupts the
vertical synchronization and blanking pulses within the B&W
video stream,

which confuses the Automatic Gain Control (AGC) circuitry
of most VCRs. Bill Clinton passed a bill callsed the

"Digital Milenium Act", which makes such garbage VCRs
compulsory within the US.

Macrovision also adds digital pulses into the invisible
scan lines of the output video stream, which are recognized
by DVD recorders, and possibly your computer, such that
they will refuse to accept or record the movie.

Often a macrovision message comes up.

4) Finally, if the video is fine and you don't have
Macrovision problems, there is a strong chance
that your computer's device drivers are not installed
or configured properly, or there is a hardware problem
within the computer.

In either case, the computer manufacturer (tech support)
should be obligated to resolve this issue (4)


5) Inexpensive Macrovision remover boxes are
widely available by searching Google.



Hope this helps

Progressive Scan


On 12/29/2007 at 1135pm, I found the solution for yours and my problem. Here is what you need to do. I did the same thing and couldnt get video. If you set Progressive Scan to ON in error , you must reset the unit. Play your dvd, then press "STOP" to stop the disc from playing. Hold the stop button on the dvd player for approx 5 seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

Dvd wont play


I wonder if you are trying to play burned dvds, if so that could be a major issue alot of players won't play burned disks, others will only play certain ones. another thing I have had problems with, though i don't know a fix. My samsung sometimes has a similar issue where it flat out will not play certain company dvds.

No sound when using coax...


Do you use AV inputs for your Cable box? If so, try swapping the audio inputs in the TV, that is, interchange the AV inputs for your DVD and cable box. If sound is audible in a different input, then the Audio input (for Cable) on your TV is faulty. One simple suggestion, Why don't you route your Cable signal through the Tuner of your VCR?
