Question about Panasonic PV-DM2799 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

Open Question

No picture or sound with TV/DVD/FM, VCR works, but cannot change volume

When I tried to watch TV just a few days ago, I was greeted with this problem. When on the TV setting, there is no picture and no sound. When I change the channel (I'm on cable), there is none of the usual static or snow. The TV displays "TV" and the channel on the screen. Same problem in DVD and FM mode. It displays all the normal stuff on the screen. With a tape, it plays, a picture shows up and is normal, but the volume won't change. I've tried turning the TV on and off in TV, DVD and FM mode, unplugged it, tried playing different DVD's and CD's, unplugging the cable box, unplugging the TV from the cable box...I think I've tried all the various ways anything could be plugged or unplugged, powered up and powered down. Nothing is connected to the TV besides the cable box. Any ideas?

It sounds to me without knowing the model or type unit that you may need to unplug tv AND take batteries out of remote for a few seconds, replug and start over. Hope it helps

SOURCE: No sound from built-in DVD player on TV?

It sounds like the audio cable from the DVD drive may be loose or damaged. Did you wall mount the TV and this is when the problem started or has it always been like this? If its under warranty, contact the helpline on 0871 2000 463, be warned, if its becuase the cable is damaged by a wall mounting screw, its clearly evident and they will charge for repair.

your tv set need parts Resoldering.
intermittent color changing is cause by cold solder joints.
have it serviced by a reliable electronic repair center or person.
you should not be charge a lot.

if you wish to fix it yourself,
you need a Soldering Iron (about 60watts) and soldering Lead (60/40).
air blower (for fast Cleaning) or
[1inch paint brush (for cleaning)]
unplug and place your set to your work bench then open the back cover.
(since you say its old, expect lots of dirt/dust inside your set, use the blower for easy cleaning).
if you have completely access of the solder side of the circuit, just resolder the joints. BE CAREFUL... DO NOT CONNECT SEPARATE JOINTS.

if you don't have experience with electronics i advise you have it to a repair person.

hope this helps you!

Hold down the play/repeat button on the TV itself for 5 seconds. That toggles in and out of demo mode. ;)

Good day: Our Tv picture is rolling when

Either the tracking will be off set on the VCR or the heads may need cleaned or the pinch roller in the VCR will be worn & need replaced.There could also be a possibility the guide arms are not fully in position in the VCR.

from experience this problem is happening all the time, to turn your tv back to digital you need to go into source and change it to dtv
With regards to the dvd not playing you could try a default reset which is,
Change it to dvd and eject any dvds in the unit
Press the setup or dvd setup button on your remote (it will be either or)
You should have options for tv type, tv system and default,
select default then it will show up with either yes or no, or it will show reset make sure yes or reset is selected press ok then turn off the tv at the wall so there is no power
then try a dvd, may work, may not

I am a installer for Directv and tv's that incorporate a dvd and/or vcr usually do not respond to the directv remote. Trust me I tried all the codes. I did find programming the av1 on the dtv remote for the dvd player would control the volume and on/off for the tv. Try the dvd codes rather than the tv codes. If no luck I recommend a Harmony remote which works well with combo tvs. Although expensive they are you must consider the convenience factor they provide.

How can I turn to AV without a remote control (Samsung TV/VCR 19in Combo)

I had this problem with my TV/VCR combo unit (Samsung CXC1972) after losing the remote while in the dorms. I tried a few different universal remotes and dozens of codes before I tried the Philips 3 device universal remote as pictured below with code 037 programmed into the VCR/DVD button. I can't change the volume with this code but the input key switches between line in and tv. You can also change the channel, access the menu and operate the VCR functions with the code. I bought the remote for less than $10 at Walmart so it might be worth a try, and if it doesn't work you can always bring it back. Hope this helps.98fe8a9.jpg

My television has sound but no picture. I can not program the television because I can not see the screen menu. I also have tried to change the antennae but this does nothing to the picture's reception.

Do you have any ideas to correct this problem. There is no warranty.
