Help with Portable DVD

I have a Go Video DP7240 and initially it worked fine. I connected it to a 13" tv that I have with the rca cables in the front of the tv to view some dvds on a larger screen. The picture initially showed on both the tv and dvd player, but then went out on the dvd player, but continued to show on the tv. when I tried to go back to use the portable in the car, the picture would show for 10 sec (I would get thru the loading screen, then it would show dvd) then it would go black. when I push the lcd button on the remote, it flashes the pic for about 5 secnds then goes black again. Also, I can now only hear thru the head phones. I can no longer hear thru the speakers on the player. HELP!!!

SOURCE: Mom was hitting buttons and now DVD plays Blue and White!

I think your mom changed the DVD output setting. Using the remote, go to the Setup Menu, then select DVD Setup. Scroll down to the Alt Video Out option. It will either be set to "Component", S-Video, or "Off". It needs to be set to the type output you are using to go from your Go Video deck to your TV. If you are using an S-Video cable, then set it to "S-Video", if using Component cables (Red, Blue, and Green cables), then set to "Component". Otherwise it should be set to "Off".

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: go video VR4940 VCR video recording has sound but no picture

You can try cleaning the video tape heads. The vcr has 2 different heads. One for audio which is fixed and a drum head for video with 2 heads on it that rotate. The best way to clean them is to take a lint free cloth ad wrap it tightly around your finger. Put some alcohol on the cloth and place it on the drum. Then rotate the drum as you hold your finger against the drum. DO NOT move your finger up and down as you can brake the head off. The other option is to go buy a head cleaning stick. It's a piece of chamie on a plastic tongue depressor. I've cleaned hundreds of them with my finger though. You can clean the whole tape path with the rag. Good Luck.

SOURCE: TV & DVD HookUp (No Box) Can't get picture

As far as I know, my Go Video machine when there was no box involved...

The cable came from the wall to the IN of the Go Video box. Then another cable coming from the OUT of the video box and to the IN to the TV. TV should be on channel 3. As far as I can remember, I don't need to push the TV/VCR button, but instead, have to channel down to below channel 2 on the TV to the LINE/INPUT selection. Once you go there, and the Go-Video machine is on, you should be able to see a clear picture.

You'll push the TV/VCR button if you want to toggle back and forth from the VCR picture to the TV picture (which will be technically blank since it's on the 'line input selection.)

Hope that helps.

Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.
