Bad component input?

Hi- I've tried connecting my hdtv tuner and my dvd player to my tv with component cables, but I only get a weird blue and black screen. (The two devices work fine on my tv with s-video cables.) Is there something I can do to fix this? Or is it simply that the component inputs are now bad?

Your cables could be defective or a bad solder at the input connectors.Make sure the colours of the cables are matching with that of the tuner and dvd.

How do i put it to play dvd player


  • Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.

  • 2

    Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


  • Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

  • 4

    Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.

  • 5

    Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.

    Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player


    Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

    Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

    If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

    To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

    Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

    Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

    How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

    Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


    Things You'll Need:

    * Component cables

    Instructions


    Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


    Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


    Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

    Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


    Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


    Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

    Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


    Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


    Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


    Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


    Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


    Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

    Tips & Warnings

    You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

    You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


    Hope it helped.

    Have a nice day...

    Why original DVDs appear in Black and white only when palyed on the Sony DVP-NS57P player?


    Usually, when you get a black and white version of the film, either the cable connection is messed up or the dvd signal and the tuner are mismatched (say NTSC TV getting a PAL signal from the dvd).

    The cable mismatch would be connecting composite video output (using the AV cable that came with the unit) to one of the three video jacks of the component video input on the TV. The obvious first thing to check is that the cables are good and in the correct configuration (yellow to yellow for composite or red, green and blue to red, green and blue). Try a new cable in case there is a damaged cable, particularly with a component video cable.

    The tuner mismatch is more common with the handheld dvd players.

    I hope this helps.

    How do I get the HD on this model? Which cables/hook up should I use? I do not have a cable box or set top box but if these are required, please let me know. Thanks!


    Your unit is HDTV ready but is not an HDTV. It is capable of displaying HDTV only through the component inputs. Your tuner is analog NTSC and will not receive HDTV or digital.

    You could get an HDTV picture using a Blue Ray DVD and hooking up the component connectors from the DVD to the TV.

    The only other way would be to get an HDTV tuner with a component output and hook it up the same way, component out to component in, and hook the tuner input to an off air antenna (receiving HDTV) or cable or satellite with HD signals.

    Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

    Hook up of dvd to tv


    hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

    simplify- blue green red= component
    red white yellow=composite

    *wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

    then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

    No input from cable connection


    Sounds likely you have a bad tuner. If you have a cable box with your cable service and it is upgraded for video and audio rca jacks output you can run red white and yellow wires to tv input where the DVD is connected or additional jacks if available. This bypasses the tuner
