Question about Coby DVD-R 1000 DVD Recorder

Open Question

No Display, but has audio. S-VIDEO shows black & white stripes.

Problem: Was working fine till one day all of a sudden the display won't work. The audio was still on. Initially I was using the normal Analog Video/ Audio connections. To troubleshoot, tried to connect S-VIDEO which was showing black & white stripes. Even opened the DVD recorder (I used to have some advanced level electronics knowledge a few years back - not now). Since I had spend $200+ on this, won't give up so easily. Resolution: (1) Googling led to this site. (2) Got a few tips from the great post by "DaninFuchs" - hats off to the guru. (3) Looked at the user manual quickly - no directions. (4) Closer look at remote - showed a key named "PS" which is used to switch from/to Progressive Scan/Interlace modes. Pressing this resolved the problem.

SOURCE: No Sound when playing a video game on Coby Pertable DVD player

Do you have the audio plugs in the proper spot? The red & white audio plugs from the PS 2 need to be plugged into the audio in jacks on the portable dvd player in order to get sound. Should match up red to red; white to white for sound, yellow to yellow for video. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I can get composite video signal from coby dvd,


Are you using component video cables for the component outputs on your tv? Plugging composite cables into component output generally will produce poor if any video.

Also, check the back of your dvd player to see if you need to flip a switch to enable component video output. Good luck.

SOURCE: I am having trouble in connecting the new dvd

I found your model information on a site which provided something I was going to ask you if I could not find it.DVD recorders need either a digital input from a cable box or a self-contained digital scanner(yours does not have this).So,you need to hook up as follows,External cable into cable box input,cable box output into DVD recorder input,DVD recorder output to TV coaxial cable input(usually labeled ant.)the screw on connector anyhow,you should know what I mean it seems.In this configuration,you should not need to turn on the DVD recorder to watch TV without recording because they usually have a bypass mode when there is no power on the DVD.If you have picture in picture(PIP),you should be able to use the main source to record and switch over to the PIP channel if you do not want to watch what you are recording.Do about a 10-30 second test of that just to make sure though so you don't end up all messed up.Oops.My do not have PIP.As long as the cable box is tuned to the channel you want to record,you should be able to use the TV's tuner to watch something else with no problem.When doing this on VHS recorders,sometimes the screen would get fuzzy and you would have to press the TV/VCR vutton on the VCR remote.I do not know if a DVD recorder will do it or not as I have yet to buy one,but when you do your test recording,you can mess around with whatever you want to see what happens so you will be fully prepared when you do it.If you need more help or have a problem/question,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and will reply ASAP.Good luck!

Black and white only

Well - it's fixed - but no thanks to anything I did.  It's just all of a sudden working fine again.  I tried three different dvd's the other night, and all were black and white.  But last night the same dvd's were back to colour.  Who knows?
But thanks for asking.

An analog video copy protection scheme that alters the unseen part of a video signal such that a VCR or other macrovision enabled device may not record the video signal properly. There are several types:
- Automatic Gain Control
- 2-line color stripe

Symptoms of this include picture fading in and out or color banding of the signal.

Video out problem

I own a DMR-ES20 and had that problem. Panasonic Customer Service gave me a fix that works.
On the unit itself, press STOP and PLAY at the same time for about 10 seconds. This fixed my player.

Same as other poster: Player only plays black and white

It sounds like the circuitry which actuates the color drives for the screen are not working, this would ba analogous to adjusting for a B&W picture on a color TV you have color but the screen shows black and white. I would get a schematic for this set and measure the voltages on the color processor that connects to the screen since you know that the external jack has color. If possible I can help you troubleshoot this, if you need me to help out.

Panasonic DVD-RV32 DVD Player-No image on RCA output

Hi Obviously the unit is playing the disk because your audio is fine, and getting some kind of black & white picture out of the composite, means that the video processor is probably ok. The most likely things to check then is the yellow video cable, (just swap the red or white in place of the yellow on both the DVD and your tv to test), or possibly the yellow RCA jack on the back of your DVD has gotten loose. If you have not done so, try wiggling it gently to see if your video comes back. If it does, and you are handy with a soldering iron, you can probably repair it yourself. Other than that, it would be a problem for a repair shop. (and a strange one!) Hope this helps, and good luck!

Dvd showing in black and white

I'm assuming you're using the yellow ended video cable and two audio cables hooked up to your TV to display the signal. If so, I would just make sure they are connected in the correct output jacks on your dvd player and that they match up with the input jacks on your TV. If so, then I'd try another DVD player to see if that one plays OK.
