Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

DVD player set to the wrong TV type and I can't see the menu

Hi,

I have a PRIMA HT-8104 home theatre system. I am in Canada.

Iaccidentally switched the TV type (in Setup on the DVD player) awayfrom NTSC and now my TV set will not display the DVD player menu.

Because my TV won't show the menu, I can't change it back.

I have tried unplugging it, waiting and then plugging it back in, but it does not help.

There does not appear to be any external way to re-set to factory settings.

What can I do?

Thanks

How to play blue ray dvd on the LG HT554


Unless it is specified as being able to play Blu-Ray discs, it cannot do so, and there are no 'hacks' to enable this function as the HT 554 is a DVD player/home theatre system. You would require a Blu-Ray player to play both types of disc.

No surround sound with Prima HT-TW57P DVD System


I realize this may sound silly but it could be the disc your are playing. Some DVDs are not mixed for surround sound and thoes that are produce very little sound from the rears.

Rear speakers were meant for effect, not meant to distract you from the picture.

Give this a try, get a movie playing that is 5.1 surround sound. Check that the home theatre is not set to stereo mode, if it is change the surround mode on the unit. Now that you are in the middle of an action scene disconnect the front speakers and see if there is background noise comming out of the rears.

If its still dead let me know more details about the system and I will work on a solution.

Cheers,

Ghosting of picture from a Panasonic home cinema system


There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-

1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.

2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV

3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.

How to create 5.1 Option in my dvd player.


The best option is, check on the back of both machines if they have a connection named "optical out" in the combo and "optical in" in the HT. If yes, go to an electronic store (radio shack is so expensive) and buy an optical cable. Then connect both devices tru that cable and select then in the HT the digital input or the automatic detect. The rest is on the menu of each movie that you are watching. Enjoy the sound

Make sure the TV is set to output audio to the digital optical port. Then make sure you have selected the proper output mode on the home theatre. Unplug the optical cable from the back of the home theatre and see if the red laser is on (don't shine it in your eyes! :))
