Question about Panasonic PV-DF2704 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

3 Answers

No picture Hello, The picture has gone out, but I can still hear audio. I have changed the video source from VCR, DVD and SAT, only getting audio. I turned the tv off and unplugged it for 24 hours. I also noticed there is a red tint to some of the pixels in the middle of the screen, when the tv is off. Any ideas? Thanks, Matt

Re: no picture

If the screen is completely black, do you feel static from the screen? If not then you probably lost your High voltage to light up the screen. If you do feel static, and in a darkened room can see a gray screen, then you have lost your video signal internally, and it could be anything from a video IC to the microcontroller chip which would be an expensive repair. Since you see some pixels in the middle of the screen when the TV is off, I'll assume the High voltage is good, and besides the video circuits, it's possible that if you had a defect in the vertical sweep circuits, it might kill the video as well. May want to get an estimate or if it's over 8 years old, replace it.

Re: no picture

I had the same problem, sound but no picture. I remove the electrical plug from the wall for several days. I then played witth the on and off button. One day I listen to the sound and the picture came back. Maybe my praying because my money was low had something to do with it, but it is working with out the remote. Anyway , good luck.

Hello; I am John at J. D. Electronics, Poland Maine. This problem is very likely caused by SAP selected on your remote control. Make sure you have selected Stereo or Mono in the audio menu. You can find all of this in your owners manual ( which you can probably download if you don't have it). Good luck, John

How to disable the vcr on emerson dvd vcr combo?

Hello sjz4923,
I understand your frustration, however you are not going to want to hear this so what I'll do is just come out and explain why what you are asking is almost impossible, and I'll offer a solution that will help you possibly repair this problem.

The term tv/dvd/vcr combo is a misnomer. The term implies that there are three components in this TV set (TV, VCR, DVD) when in reality there are 1 and 1/2 components in this unit. The TV section of this set is actually the VCR section (RF tuner, IF processor, Video and audio, sync section) what is added to make the TV part of this is the deflection, and High voltage section to power and control the signal to the CRT. As far as the DVD section this basically is a DVD player without the video output, but rather the analog video plugs into the VCR video out. You do have aux ports for DVD video out but these may or may not be amplified video. In a nut shell The TV and the VCR are the same electronics except for the deflection and HV circuits, and the DVD and VCR are separate except for the audio and video main inputs.

So what you are asking is almost impossible since the TV and VCR are the circuit.

Now to repair your problem. What is happening is that the signal that the circuit uses to tell that the VCR carriage is connected properly is not being sensed, what this could mean is the the signal processor is bad or the position control is malfunctioning. The first thing I would do is to make sure that the position control (a wheel on the circuit board which the carriage sets on top of and a peg from the carriage sets into a hole on the wheel) is in sync with the carriage wheel.

Also if you have the equipment you can check the sync signal created by the control and compare it with the signal on the schematic of the TV.

Now having said all of this, if you don't have a background in electronics I would suggest that you get a TV repair technician to work on this problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Emerson ewc1303 tv/vcr combo...can I also hook up a dvd?


Viewing the user manual above, the only inputs are on the front of the unit. (1) video - yellow
and (1) Audio - White
You can watch the DVD, but it will only have MONO sound.
Connect component RCA cable RED YELLOW WHITE (minus red in your case) to the front of the unit.

To view from that source, Change the channel to 2 then hit the down arrow one more time to get in AUX mode.

No VCR/DVD Picture or sound

Your unit may have been switched to Progressive Scan mode, which a normal analogue TV can't recognise. Check your VCR/DVD manual for instructions to change picture settings and set it back to PAL TV.
Failing that try a new 3 conductor lead from unit to TV.  Also unless you yourself were actually the one who accidentally unplugged the unit, it is just possible that whoever did has not (for whatever reason)disclosed to you the full detail of what actually happened to cause it to fail. If it was in fact dropped or fell, pulling on the AV leads they could have been rendered useless or the unit itself might have suffered a Gforce-shock causing component failure or circuit board fracture.
All the best with this one
