Question about Sony DVP-NS57P

1 Answer

SONY DVP-NS57P does not display video

My main problem is that my TV does not display the video portion of any DVD. My components are: (1) Philips 19PR21C1 Television; (2) Denon DRA-295 AM-FM Stereo Receiver, (3) SONY DVP-NS57P DVD Player; and (4) Access HD Digital to Analog TV Signal Converter.

I do not have cable or satellite. Prior to installing my Digital Converter Box, I received TV broadcast signals through my roof antenna.

When I installed my DVD player, I made all the proper connections to my receiver and to the digital converter box. I also made the proper connections to and from the TV and digital converter box.

The digital converter box and TV have no problems communicating between them, and I can watch all local digital broadcast channels.

On my DVD player, when I put in a pre-recorded DVD movie, I can hear the audio portion through my speakers. Also, on my DVD player, I can succesfully play audio CDs, which I hear through my speakers.

I am still unable to see the video portion of any DVD movie disc on my television screen.

I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thank you.

    I have tried hooking up the DVD player directly to the TV - still no video from DVD player. Also tried different video output connections on receiver - still no video from DVD player.

    I looked more closely at the DVD player manual. There is a note that says, "You cannot connect this player to a TV that does not have a video input jack." My TV has a video jack on the front of the set. I tried hooking up the video cord, running directly from the DVD player to the TV set - still no video from DVD player.

    I forget to mention this initially: Step 6 of the DVD manual says to follow these steps:

    1. Turn on the TV - which I successfully did.
    2. Press I/O - which I successfully did.
    3. Switch the input selector on your TV so that the signal from the player appears on the TV screen.

    This is where the problem started - My TV has no input selector, neither on the set itself nor on the remote control. No signal from the player appeared on the screen.

    Is it possible my TV is incompatible with the DVD player?

    Could that be the root cause of my problem?

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    I'm using a digital converter box, so I can only view local digital broadcast channels. Should I disconnect the digital converter box, and go back to analog reception so I can scroll through all available channels?

  • rijj Nov 02, 2008

    I have the TV manual. But, to reiterate, wouldn't be a good idea to deinstall the converter box and put the TV back to analog so I can go through all the available channels from 2 to infinity? And: if I do that, exactly how can I tell which channel will allow the signal from the DVD player to be displayed on the TV screen?

    Thanks.


  • rijj Nov 02, 2008

    I am totally frustrated!

    I put the TV back to analog.
    Got the "AV" channel.
    Neither the DVD setup display screen, or the video from a DVD movie will display on the TV screen.
    I used a video splitter and tried about six different connection configurations. Nothing worked.

    The digital converter box has the following connections, which enable me to view local digital broadcast channels:

    TV RF cable connected to RF input on digital converter box,
    Roof antenna cable connected to Antenna input on digital converter box.

    I can also hear the audio portion of a DVD movie,
    and can also play and hear audio CDs.

    No channel on the TV will display ANYTHING from the DVD player.

    I'm increasingly getting the feeling my TV is incompatible with my DVD player. If this turns out to be true, can anyone recommend a DVD player that WILL be compatible with my TV?

    Thanks.

    Rats. I don't have another TV. What next?

  • rijj Nov 03, 2008

    Problem solved! Here's what I did:

    Researched ehow.com. found articles on connecting old tv's to dvd players, and connecting dvd player to converter box. Discovered upon reading these articles that I most likely needed an RF Modulator, which I bought. I connected the DVD player red/white/yellow RCA plugs directly to the RF modulator; connected the TV out coaxial cable and the roof antenna cable to the RF modulator. Voila! Was able to set up DVD player and watch DVD. However, one slight problem remained - sound only through TV speaker, not through stereo speakers. And, also, with no TV coaxial cable nor antenna cable connected to the digital converter box, could not watch digital channels on the tv. Solution to first issue: used single yellow cord to directly connect DVD player video out to RF modulator video in RCA jack; used red/white RCA cord to directly connect DVD player audio to receiver DVD audio in jacks. Solution to second issue: to view digital channels, took TV coaxial cable and antenna cable out of RF modulator and plugged them into digital converter box.

    I am now able to: watch pre-recorded and downloaded/PC recorded DVDs; listen to pre-recorded and downloaded/PC recorded CDs; watch digital channels on my TV, hear audio from DVDs and CDs through my stereo speakers.

    The only problem I cannot overcome, and don't feel like messing with, is having to switch the TV coaxial and roof antenna cables back and forth between the RF modulator and the digital converter box, depending on whether I want to watch digital TV channels, or watch a DVD. To me, that is small potatoes.

    I want to thank Mistersony for his help. I hope others here may find this information useful.

    First I would try hooking the DVD player directly to the TV to see if you get a picture. If you do, then the receiver is not switching the video signal properly, at which point you can try hooking the DVD to a Different input on the receiver. Let me know what happens and we'll proceed from there.

If your TV has no input selector but has a video input, the TV probably "hides" the video input between the lowest channel on the tuner and the highest channel. That means if your tuner goes from channel 2 to channel 119, the video input will be between 119 and 2. The best way to see if this is the case is to slect channel 2 and then use the up/down channel selector to go down and see if you find the video input. Let me know if this works!

    If the digital converter box is connected to the antenna input on the TV it shouldn't matter if it is connected or not. You MAY run into a problem where the TV has programmed channels and will not "tune" down below channel 2 to see if you can find the input. BTW, I downloaded the TV manual and can send you a copy if you provide an email address.

  • Any Guy
    Any Guy Nov 02, 2008

    It shouldn't make any difference if you have the digital converter box connected or not, as I said before, as long as it is attached to the antenna input. And the TV should display "A/V" where the channel indication should be to tell you that you have selected the right input. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

    At this point, it would be helpful if you could connect the DVD to another TV to see if the DVD player is putting out anything. Then, check the DVD player menu to make sure you have not enabled "PROGRESSIVE" in the menu, as this will not display on your TV. Also, make sure you are connected to the correct jack on the back of the DVD player, you should be hooked to the video output that is grouped with the audio out jacks, not to the component outputs.

  • Any Guy
    Any Guy Nov 02, 2008

    Try this. Connect one cable directly from the component output labeled Y and connect the other end to the video in on your TV. Tell me iof you see anything.

  • Any Guy
    Any Guy Nov 02, 2008

    Here's something else you can try from the owners manual. Using the remote Turn off the DVD player and push 3, 6, 9 on the remote, then immediately turn the player on and connect the video out to the tv and see if you have anything

    You should be able to buy an RF switch so you won't have to swap the cables back and forth. You can get them at Radio Shack; you need one like this:

    Sorry my help didn't work. It sounds like your AV input on your TV is not working.

Check all cables for loose connection, try another input for picture (DVD, BLu-Ray, etc). If none of the other inputs work then it's a panel problem (display) If one or more of the others work then it's a problem with either the tuner or the signal.
