I'm having a problem with my Component Video connectors on my Sony KV - 27FS100 TV. I recently purchased a new component video cable thinking my old had gone bad. However, I am still having the same problem. The problem I am having is horizontal (black) lines across the screen when trying to play a DVD hooked up to my TV with component video cable. I can see that the DVD is playing and I am getting sound, but the picture is obviously not being seen because of the horizontal (black)lines are not allowing the picture to be seen. When I hook up using composite video cables (not my preference), everything is fine. So, I think problem lies with the component video connectors. I'm thinking that maybe something has become disconnected or loose? Is this something that I can fix myself? Or, do I need to take it to a repair shop? Is this a costly repair? Everything else works fine on the TV.

Component video IS analog. It is also known as Y-Pr-Br. These connections are typically RCA connectors colored Red/Green/Blue.
Component will give you the highest quality signal for analog connections (vs Composite Video (yellowRCA) or S-Video(the round 4 pin connector) Of course HDMI will be best if it is supported.
Keep in mind video signal formats are NOT interchangable, you cannot plug a Composite Video into a Component Input
All you need is a component source (typically a DVD player) and 3 RCA cables and match the colors up.
You will also need to connect the Audio connectors (Red/White) with RCA cables, as the Component is Video only
I hope this helps,
It sounds connections are not matched yet. Make sure connections are green to green, red to red and blue to blue in dvd player and tv are correct. Try another component video cable. If problem still exist, test dvd player to any other tv, found ok then component input of this TV is bad, need to get it repaired.
sounds to me like the differnence between watchiing in progressive and interlace. these older tube tv's are not capable of displaying a progressive scanned image. like the first dvd players. check your video out settings on your ipod to make sure its an interlace output.
Hey smittybd, According to information provided by the manufacturer, this specific model DVD player is only able to provide upconverted 1080i images via its HDMI output and a maximum 480p resolution using its component connectors. Please keep in mind that while component cables are able to support 1080i and 1080p resolutions, not all hardware (TV's and DVD players) will support these resolutions through component connections. If you're having difficulty locating a model that specifically supports 1080i resolution images through its component connections, you may wish to try visiting individual manufacturers' websites for more information. Some companies (such as Sony) will provide detailed information regarding what each type of connection is capable of in their owner's manual documentation. Hope this helps you out.

if it is white brightlines along with blue back ground please check
1 sypply to blue video output transformer.
2 crt base or connector loose.
3 check components related to blue video ckt & blue video output transistor.
4 blue signal reaching to blue video section
5 verv very rare case if set is old set then there is a possibility of crt.
hope this will help.
as other color are ok(blue&green)& no red colour.please check as follows.
1 check supply to red video transistor.
2 check for loose crt base.
3 check for loose connector
4 check components related to red video ckt.& cathode ckt.
5 check for red signal is coming to red video ckt.
6 check red cathoe voltage.
7 signal processor ic.
