Sponge bob DVD player will work on a regular TV but will not show up on the sponge bob tv anymore. Also tried a different DVD player and only get a blue screen. Shows AV then AV then tv or something. It is...

Your Emerson Sponge Bob's model will be SB350. It is a TV/DVD combo, with two AV inputs too. You ahve to see only DVD player with it as you says. You can change its mode to eiter TV/AV or DVD/TV by its remote control buttons. Press the DVD/TV mode button on the remote control to chage the modes to TV or DVD. On DVD mode, you can play DVDs with it. I thinks that you have its user manual with you now. Go to its pate [23] where there is illustrations for which button on the remote control handset should be pressed to select this. If you haven't its user manual with you, send your email address to me by FixYa comment box. I'll send a copy you the user manual to you by return mail. OK.

Hi- my 74cm TV- when i connect the dvd player and switch to AV- there is no picture only sound. But the dvd player works perfect on my other TV- what could be the problem??

If your DVD with same AV cord working fine on another TV then its a problem of cold soldering of video pin that needs touch up soldering. And tv work fine again.
Thanks for using fixya.

Get the RCA 4 device universal remote from radio shack. model #RCR4383N $10.00. It wouldn't work using the emerson codes in the manual. Let it find the code automatically. input button on bottom will switch to and from AV input.

Hook up

You can by an AV splitter box from dick smith or even k-mart audio section that allows you to plug all your units into it, then leads go to your TV. There is a switch on the box which you flick over depending whether you want to watch a DVD or play your game unit.

The other option is to have a llok at the back of your DVD player. Some have input AV's (the red, white and yellow holes !) where you could plug your game console into. Then you just leave your dvd plugged into your tv as normal. To play your game console you turn on TV and DVD player. Have TV on "AV" channel as well as your DVD player on "AV" channel (may also be your input or component channel.

Hope this helps :)

No picture/sound on tv after connecting standard dvd player and inserting dvd

how many av inputs do you have on that tv? is it more than one? make sure you choose the right input. if that is not the problem then you are having a problem with av section in the tv I suggest that you take it to a repair man to get it fixed or you can use the RF cable to connect it to your tv. it is not the best but is saloution to the problem..good luck
