There may be some settings required to be modified on the reciever box. Or you can try this. Turn the TV ON with the reciever OFF. When it is fully ON, turn on the reciever and go into its MENU options and try changing the 4:3 Override to some other setting like 'Stretched', etc. This may help..

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

You posted under RCA HDLP61W151 whose rear connectors are only S-Video x 2 • Component x 2 • Composite x 4 • DVI x 1 • FireWire x 1 • Audio (RCA) x 4 • RF x 2 • RJ-45 x 1 while the front are S-Video x 1 • Composite x 1 • Audio (RCA) x 1. Are you using an HDMI to something converter?

Alternately, if your particular model has another HDMI connector especially on the front, pls try there.

Or post back your TVs exact model.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

HI,
As you have already connected another TV to the HDMI cable and it works fine, you have answered your question yourself. You need to check the HDMI port on the TV for any problems . I would suggest to get in touch with a local tech., cause this would involve opening up your TV.

Thanks
Proton

Bypassing built-in TV/DVD Player for another DVD player


Connect another DVD player to an unused input port on the back of the tv. If there is a HDMI port available connect it there if the dvd player has HDMI. Then all you have to do is change the input number on the tv. If you get picture but no sound, use RCA audio cables from the player to the tv. Not all HDMI cables pass audio.

HOW TO PLAY DVD PLAYER WITH THE TV


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • DVD
  • RCA, component, or HDMI cable(s)
  1. Decide what type of connection to use. Look at the back of your DVD player. It should at least have RCA (red, yellow, white) output ports. It may also have component out, S-video out, VGA out, or HDMI out. These connections vary in picture quality and price, HDMI being the most expensive and providing for the highest-quality picture. Whichever type of connection you decide to use, you also need to verify that you have the same connection on your TV. Flat screen TVs typically have more connection options than other types of TVs, so you should at least have component, RCA and HDMI inputs.
  2. Connect the DVD payer to the flat screen TV. Take one end of the cable or cables you decided to use and connect to the output on the DVD player. The other end should be connected to the corresponding input on the TV. Video input connections are usually found on the sides of flat screen TVs. Once the DVD player has been connected, you are ready to use your DVD player.
  3. Check DVD player functionality. Tune your TV to the input that you used for your DVD player by pressing the button on your remote labeled "input," "source," "TV/video," Source select," "TV/AV" or the like. For instance, if you used an HDMI cable plugged into your TV's "HDMI 1" input, press the input selection button until you see HDMI 1 on the screen. Power on the DVD player, insert a DVD into the player and press play and you should now see a feed from your DVD player.

I have a toshiba 42HL196. With HDMI cables hooked up, I have no picture when attempting to watch cable TV or use my DVD player. Everything works when I hook up using RCA cables. What is my problem?


By no picture, do you mean that you have sound? If yes then ensure that the tv and the DVD player/cable box is set to the same resolution as that of the tv. That should resolve the problem.

Hi, Just bought a 26" sony bravia tv. I don't use cable or satillite. I just need to find out what kind of cable I need to connect my panasonic DVD player to the TV and which port do I plug it into?


The best quality would be a HDMI cable, if your DVD player has a HDMI port on the back.

Any of the HDMI ports on the TV can be configured to take the audio over HDMI (digital audio) or over a separate rca stereo patch cable (menu option in the TV for analog audio).

So if your DVD has HDMI, just buy a HDMI cable and you're done. If you cannot figure out how to switch the audio input, there is no big harm in just installing a separate RCA patch cable between the two for the sound.

The next-best would be a component-video cable (Red/Yellow/Green) RCA cable, with a separate red/white RCA audio cable.

Alternately, if your DVD has a S-video port, that is comparable to component video. Then you would need a separate audio cable as well.

Last but not least, if your DVD player is ancient, it may only have a yellow video out connection, then red/white for audio. You then just need a standard yellow/red/white RCA component cable.

Flat screen to dvd connection help!


It depends on the TV.

On my Phillips TV this is switchable via the TV setup menu, and you get no sound with HDMI unless you change that setting.

The reason it's switchable is that the HDMI input is usually common with one of the component-video inputs (AV3 on mine). (cost saving move)

Thus if the menu is set to hdmi, then the audio goes thru hdmi. If it's set to 'component' then it goes thru the RCA patch cable.

No sound from plasma to home theatre


First off it's always best to start from scratch when it comes to home audio. LoL. Many times I've been in this situation.
So with everything disconnected. You should have your HDMI, COMPONENT, RCA(R,W,Y)
HDMI and COMPONENT are the exact same thing and in all preference COMPONENT is far better thand HDMI for the pure fact that each wire is in it's own casing and insualted to avoid feedback from the other wires.
Anyways, with everything disconnected we begin
From you Cable/satellite box- Run your HDMI cable from you cable box to your HDMI 1 input on your tv.(If your speakers were to work on your tv you would automaticaly get sound and picture)
That should be all that you should be running from you cable box. Now that we have one thing running we go to the next thing.
From your TV run your audio out (RCA Red/White) to your amp. Usually your preference but more than likely your TV IN on your amp.
With your amp now set on TV, you should automatically get sound from your tv. and if your running an HD cable box even though your only running RED/WHITE to your amp, you will still be receiving Digital sound.
Most new amps Should have a digital input and if your running and 1080iUp this one RCA plugin will give you dolby digital sound from your dvd player to your amp. Then running a video rca up to your tv, will give you the picture, while the digital out on your dvd player to your amp will give you dolby digital sound.

It's a basic simple step to get sound. Like a continuing current. So just as long as you have your cable to -- tv -- home theatre. Everything should work. Otherwise I would go and check your cables and make sure they are not faulty.
I hope this confusing walkthrough helps.

NO sound and NO cable signals


Is your tv connected to your cable box through HDMI, AV, or component?
_____________________________

If its through HDMI then your cable carrier needs to load updated frimware in your box to communicate properly with your 2005 tv. The firmware loaded in your cable box needs to be "reverse compatible" for first generation HDMI from your 2005 tv. If your using AV or component hook-up and there's no sound then re-check all of your audio settings within the tv's menu. Also recheck the cable-wire your using and proper input/output ports.



ON your dvd player, is your tv connected through component, AV(rca) or HDMI?

If its through "component" then you need an extra audio cable to and from the DVD and tv.
