Question about Sylvania SRCD227 27 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Sound but no picture

Our DVD player wasn't opening so we took off the back of the TV to try and fix it. We fixed it, but when we reconnected the wires, we now get sound but no picture at all, just a blank screen. Are there any particular wires that control the ability to produce the picture that we should check? We don't have any technical knowledge about how a tv works. Thanks

Is hard to tell what might be happening but the set has wires coming from the chassis to the crt board,backtrack your steps and check the conectors,ussually they can only fit one way and can not be forced in,make sure they have not been switched and stay away from the thick red lead coming from the output transformer to the back of the picture tube,it has high voltage and it can hurt a grown up man easily,the crt board in the neck of the picture tube nneds to be pushed in all the way,just checked that is in and if you have to remove it make sure you pull straight out and do not twist it because one of the pins in the crt might break,if you took it out before just check that one of the pins is not bent.Let Us know if you need more information.

I have the Sony KV-36XBR400. The picture freezes intermittently. Sound is OK. When I turn TV off and on again, I may get a good picture for about 15mins, sometimes longer. Sometimes half of the screen will...

Hi.. Sorry to hear that the Picture is freezing.. Here are some of the steps that you can try:
*Try to connect a different video source with the TV like DVD Player, Blu-ray player and check.
*If the issue persists, disconnect the power cord and reconnect to a different wall outlet without the Power surge protector.
* If the issue persists, you need to contact the nearest service center to fix this.
Yes, you were correct many LCD TVs have problems compared to this TV.

No picture after resetting by pressing stop button for 20 sec

Problem fixed: I realized that the problem was that with resetting the player it defaulted to the standard video ouput ie no longer sending signal through the component video. I used a standard video cable and connected player to tv with that and it had a picture. Then I changed the setting to progressive output and got picture signal through the component cable again.

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD

Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck

No sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr

Just had the same problem and it is fixed for me. With NO DISC in the player go to the System Menu. Next Navigate to Preferences on the top of the screen.

You will set an option titled "Default". Select that and it seems to reset the player to default settings and fixes the sound.|

You have your DVD connected to your VCR, which is then connected to your TV, right? The problem is Macrovision. It's designed to prevent you from connecting your DVD player to your VCR, so that you can't make duplicates of copyrighted movies. It's a real pain in the neck. Try turning the DVD player off - or better yet, unplugging its power cord (as some DVD players are always in a standby mode, even when turned off). If that fixes the problem, then you need to reconnect your DVD player directly to the TV, not wired through the VCR. If your DVD player isn't wired through the VCR, are you using some kind of wire splitter (one cable branches into two) to connect both the DVD player and VCR? That can also cause this kind of interference, if both have power at the same time. There are video switches you can get to work around that. Here's one such switch (first I found for a decent price with a google search): Hope that helps.
