Sound does not work in television mode but has white noise in DVD mode
I have a 5 year old Philips 27PT31B1 television. Tonight, the sound on the television is dead but if you change the mode to the DVD player you get deafening white noise. I have tried everything, including disconnecting everything and have hooked up the cable tv coax directly to the television set. Nothing works. I've checked most of the setting in the tv menu, but can't seem to find anything amiss. Help!!!

that input is called DVI digital video interface it is only for video. there should be some red and white composite input jacks for the audio near the DVI connector. you will need to hookup the red and white cables from the tv to the cable box or dvd player or whatver you are using. good luck
Are you using the rf antenna input for TV or 1 of the VIDEO inputs from a cable box or sat receiver. If the latter check to see if you unplugged the audio fron the box White and red wires from box. If thats ok Plug that dvd player into that input using the cabes from the dvd player .If you now have sound change ables from box. if still no sound cable box bad. If still no sound from that input check for solder connection on input jacks. If antenna input is used replace the tunner intv.
just took mine apart tonight. your opener on the DVD tray requires a small rubber band. It looks like my rubber band is barely working but doors still open.
IF ANYONE HAS A "NO DISC" MESSAGE, TRY CLEANING THE LASER. The laser is right past the bottom spool, dead in the center. Might require a long q-tip. The top spool does not turn on it's own but requires the bottom spool to turn.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE IT APART: 1.) have some fingernail polish ready to mark wires. Use many diferent colors. 2.) There are probably at least 5 clips to disconnect. I took out around 25 screws to get to the least ammount of work for the DVD player. It really is burried in there. 3.) The central board near the end of the tube is holding residual power. Gives a nice little shock -- even when the tv has been unplugged for a while. 4.) remember to ground yourself out and other precautions. Again: The DVD player is really down deep and requires many wires to be removed to get to it.
I ended up taking off the top board and prying it so that I did not have to cut the tube power wires. The power wires to the tube must be soldered back together. :-)
*Have multiple screw drivers ready. ** Have extensions for your screwdrivers.
I got this tv/dvr used because the last owner couldn't get it working. Looks like a pretty good picture. Even though philips has a DVD at target for 30$, the integration is well worth fixing/replacing. This 5 year old DVD is playing really well while the Philips often die in 6 months for our use.
Check you owners manual for the audio settings. Check these pages and note that the underline setting are the factory settings.Pages 37-41.These are the setting most likely changed. You can always reset the player to factory settings. This will most likely restore everything to normal. This procedure can be found on page 47. The reset function is call default. This is a factory reset function.The function is found in the settings menu under the preferences.If you do not have a copy of the owners manual handy, you can use this link and find a pdf copy on the philips website.http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=US&slg=AEN&cat=DVD_HOME_THEATER_CA&sct=DVD_PLAYERS_SU&session=200906 If you still cannot get the player working correctly, you can call the Phillips customer support at this telephone number 1-888-744-5477. Give them the model number of your dvd player and the problem you are having with the sound slowing down. They will be able to help you solve this problem. I hope this information help you solve your problem.
Hello any cable or satelite tv show is now more comonly in high definition sound and video! and the techs are wrong because their are plenty of movies on tv including news channels that broadcast in surround sound ,but in order to get that surround sound you must either have a connection from the tv,s audio out or you can also out put the sound from the cable or satelite box out to your bose system as as the scritching sound where does it only happen when in surround mode or stereo mode ? if you play a dvd or cd does it still make noise? and can you be more specific on your terminology SCRITCHING not really shure what you mean by that word! thank you glenn mayer
