Problem with DVD player screen output

My DVD player works fine if connected to the TV using the AV out cable. If I play the player to view the picture on the TFT display, the screen appears blurred out. Nothing is recognisable on the display. Even when no disc is loaded, the screen doesn't display the default screen correctly. Is there some way to reset the TFT screen on the player? There are no problems with the sound output.

The player does play the dvd's and everything but the picture wont show up in my television. I already connected the RCA connectors into the television and the player but still no picture. Please Help.

Assuming you used the standard YELLOW-WHITE-RED RCA cable, between the unit and the TV, the colours of each of the plugs should match both the outputs on the rear of the unit and the respective inputs at the rear of the TV. The TV must also be on an AV input 'channel' to receive the connected unit. (for example, AV1 or VIDEO 1)

Try changing the RCA cables - just in case the ones you currently have are defective in some way.

Being a combo unit, there should be a DVD-VCR common output on the rear - using RCA cable, the YELLOW is video, the WHITE is left channel, the RED is right - these MUST match the input on the TV, and the TV AV input must be selected in order to view the pictures and audio from the unit. To enjoy both VCR and DVD, using the RCA connection, the common output on the rear of the combo unit is recommended.

Better quality video is possible using S-Video cable (available from electronics stores such as Radio Shack etc. but this does not provide audio; you would still require RCA RED-WHITE cable for that, and your TV may not have S-Video input). Your TV may have a TV/AV button on the front - select the correct AV 'channel' with that if necessary.

It makes sense to check everything twice before assuming anything is broken.

I'm trying to hookup my Toshiba DR430KU to an older tv that require an RF Modulator. I get a skewded sideways picture. Does This DVDR compatable with a RF Modulator?

Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).

RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.

RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.

I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.

When playing a DVD, I get sound but not a picture. The message on the screen is no input, check input. I have checked the cables at the DVD and at the TV and both are connected correctly, i.e. red to...

Have you tried using standard RCA AV cables? yellow-red-white - to TV. Or have you tried using an S-Video cable (a 5-pin mini DIN plug) between your DVD player and TV? if your TV has S-Video input, and your player has S-Video output, a cable for this should be easy to obtain and connect. Not expensive either.

Your TV should automatically detect the connection of S-Video (if it has this feature). S-Video is better quality than standard RCA yellow AV cable. (you can leave the existing component video connected)

You can also check your DVD player 'setup' maybe it is incorrect - make sure when using component video (red-green-blue) to set the player's output to progressive (for a TV that supports it) - unless it is already set to this.

If everything in the setup menu checks out OK, go with the cheap and easy S-Video cable suggestion. Radio Shack may sell these.

Dvd play works but vcr playing does not

For this unit the component output (green, blue, and red cables) only work for the DVD player portion of it. You will need to connect either the av input on the back or the front with composite (yellow, red, and white cables) to your television in addition to the component cables I assume you have connected already. Once you have done so you will need to switch this unit over to the right av output in order to access the vcr and also switch your television over to the right av input in order to pick up the signal from the vcr.

If the DVD is connected to the TV properly using the yellow, white & red AV cable and the TV is switched to AV and there is still no picture, plug the yellow lead from the back of the DVD player into the green socket. If you see a black and white picture now the DVD output is on Progressive Scan mode. See user manual to turn off Progressive Scan mode.

How to change from tv to dvd mode

the difference between tv and av, is that av has no showers on the screen. if you change to av you will notice a blue screen, connect your yellow on vedio output and white/ red on audio out of tv
note- before connecting to a vedio touch a tip of your vedio cable some lines will show on your screen, if touch your audio tip harming noise will sound on your tv. if this two happens then you know that your cables are okey. hold your channel button on your tv, channel will start runing after all rf channels finish, tv will go to av.

DVD in, have sound but no picture???


Initially, a couple of ideas:
  • check the cables from the DVD to the VHS to the TV (I am assuming that the sound is likewise connected to the TV and not to a home receiver system or an amplifier);
  • I am assuming again that you are using RCA and not RF, if yes pls pay special attention to the yellow RCA on both the DVD to VHS and VHS to TV;
  • diagonal roll often indicates a loose ground or a defective cable/RCA connector;
  • verify settings/configurations in all three; DVD, VHS, TV. TV should be set to AV or Video, VHS likewise to A/V INput;
  • try playing a known good VHS tape, if normal playback, problem is between DVD and VHS, if likewise no video, problem is between VHS and TV.
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.
