Hooking up my plasma to a Panasonic digital tuner & dvd player

I have recently bought (today) a Panasonic DVD Recorder Model No. DR-EX75 to replace my standard panasonic digi box - I had no dvd player. I simply took the scart cable from the back of the digi box and plugged it into the appropriate scart socket on the new dvd recorder and likewise the aerial socket and additionally dealt with the mains power supply. I cannot get a proper signal. I only receive a picture in black and white which flickers constantly - I have tried changing all the input options on my screen none of which seem to make any difference. Please bear in mind additionally that the panasonic is a monitor only and does not receive a television signal. I'd appreciate anyones help before I take it back to the shop. Many thanks

SOURCE: Connecting Sony PS2 to Panasonic HT32LZD85

First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.

Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).

If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.

Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.

I have my Sony flatscreen (KDL-40XBR) attached to a Panasonic DVD recorder. I recently lost all digital channels on my TV and no digitial channels can be found when I do a full scan. I can still get...

From the looks of it the tuner seems to be malfunctioning. You are able to get picture through your DVD recorder because the signal is directly fed to the audio/video proecessing circuits , when you connect via the HDMI, Component or RCA ports at the back of the tv. Since this mode of connection also ensures better quality signal I suggest that you continue using it as this problem can only be resolved by replacing the main A/V board on which the tuner is located. The board costs about 100-125$ and is not very hard to replace. So if you wish to replace it, then let me know and I will give you the detailed instructions along with the link to the part.
P.S: Bad Rating = No further help.

Can I make DVD player/recorder regional code free - DMR-XW 380

It depends on model probably-I actually bought a G.E. 3 dvd changer with pitch control, mic input-a nice unit altogether-and one of the menu's for playback advised me " warning you should not be here " indicating someone had successfully modified it for all dvd region playback-i know it would have to do with reprogramming/replacing a chip somewhere.Good luck and I hope this was helpful.

I cannot record from a Daewoo DVD recorder ( 8150P) through my Viera TV ( model TX-L32S20B ). The screen says No Signal and instructs me to check inputs. I've tried using all cominations of AV1 and AV2...

If you want to record from the TV to the DVD recorder you have to first select a channel on the TV that you want to record and then take an AV cable ( Yellow / Red / White ) and connect from the Monitor out socket of the TV to the AV in of the Daewoo DVD recorder. Drop a blank DVD select AV on the Recorder and press the record button.

It is against the law to copy protected Shows/Films etc.

Hope that explains it.

Set up for panasonic tc-50ps24 tv with hd cable box to home theater and dvd recorder

Man the best i can tell you to do is to keep everything strait starting with your video and then your audio. If your running Hi def you might can possibley run S-Video being that your DVD recorder may only have the input and out for that. If so you would take your video being S Video run it into the Home Theater Reciever and then go monitor out of the reciever into the DVD recorder. Keep in mind you must run S Video into your Home theater then to your DVD. More then one cord may likey go into your Home theater but only one should come out to go to the DVD player and then to the the TV but thats just for your Video. Now for your sound you have a few options. You can run anlalog to the Reciever or run from the Digital side either Coax or Digital Optical and again this is for your sound and is marked on the reciever. Your better sound will be Digital but you can still run analog if you want to do so. It may be easier for you to understand that anlalog is unsually in mono and not stero which means your sound will not have the defination you may want but never the less you will still have sound.

How do i record from a vcr tape to a dvd on a sansui dual deck vcr dvd recorder?

If it is a combination VCR/DVD player,they usually can't do it.If you get a separate VCR player from a friend or neighbor,you can connect the VCR output to a cable box input,cable box output into DVD input,or if the DVD recorder has a digital tuner you can plug the VCR output player straight into the input of the DVD recorder.DVD recorders REQUIRE some form of digital input.That is why you need to route a VCR player through a cable box or the DVD recorder needs a digital tuner.If you are not sure if your recorder has a digital tuner,call sansui,they will know.I tried to find Sansui home and I found everything BUT DVD/VCR.If you have a manual it will be in there,or it may have a phone number on a label(back or bottom probably)of the unit.Good luck!Greg If you want to send me your model number,I will research it further too.It is up to you.

Could you recommend a range of DVD player / recorders to go with the product below. Im on Foxtel and thinking Blu ray ... but have been told that my TV may not be entirely compatible

How old is your TV?Flat screens should not have a compatibility issue with the recorder,however,for a DVD recorder,you need one either with a digital tuner or a cable wire into cable box into DVD recorder into TV,to create the digital input.That is all I can think of that they may be talking about.Who told you about a compatibility issue?Good luck!

No sound on my phillips 42

Hook it up with component cables plus L&R analog audio. Make sure the Speakers are not turned off in the settings. Unplug, wait 30 sec's. or even overnight. If still no sound, try cable or air/rabbit ears on the internal tuner. If nothing, bad main board. $350.00 from Andrews.
