"No Signal" when DVD player is hooked up via component video

"no signal" is read while using component video cables to hook up two different dvd/surround sound devices. what really doesn't make any sense to me is that maybe 25% of the time the tv will display the video. if i hook up the cable box with the same component video cables, it works perfectly. Unfortunately, I have to use the component video to hook up my dvd since it does not have HDMI.

    when we used the fast forward button on our DVD remote to move through the different sections all of a sudden we lost the signal. Now no matter what we just get the "no signal" message when we go th AV1 to try to watch a DVD. Did we burn something out? We tried unplugging DVD for awhile and that didn't work. What else can we do?

If you are using the same cables,same input and the cable box works ok. I would look into the settings of the DVD player. Such as is it a progressive playback and is progressive turned on. It is not turned on by default because not all TV's could handle progressive in.

I'm receiving a no signal notification on my Samsung LCD when i connect my DVD player using a scart lead - it isn't the lead as i have tested 3 and tried them in another tv along with the player.
It used to work before but now that i have tried to reconnect it, this problem has shown up?

That is the solution, thanks. Also in the video settings in your dvd player menu select which cables you used to hook up to the tv. Y Pb Pr

We have a new TV, old surround sound, old dvd player & want to get Blu-ray player with component video output to work with our surround sound. Is this possible & Which Blu-ray player?

component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).

What do I do to get my signal back on my westinghouse TV that is hooked up to dish cable

If no signal via the cable fitting try hooking set via one of the sets of jacks on the back (audio/video or component) to see if coax input or tuner is bad.

If the set works with a DVD etc hooked to one of those inputs and your cable is good--maybe a bad tuner in the set---also if using a box try hooking cable direct to set to rule out the box.

My dvd player appears to be working - the disk is in place and the numbers advance as if it is playing - but all the tv screen displays is No Signal. I've talked to a Comcast tech and the problem doesn't...

Make sure your TV input source selector is set to the correct option (Video 1, Video 2 or Rear Video Connection or whaever the options are for your TV) when you want to play a DVD.

Try using the DVD player on a different TV to see if the DVD player is working OK.

Then try a different DVD player hooked up to your TV to see if your TV is set up OK.

You can also try using a different set of cables just in case the cables are faulty.

Try using an S-Video cable from your DVD player to your TV (if they both have those connections)and see if you get any signal that way.

When you are testing, be sure to check the sound on your TV to see if you are getting any audio signal from your DVD player.

By carrying out these troubleshooting procedures you should be able to narrow down exactly where the problem is and then fix it.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?

your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

I can't seem to hook up my Insignia T.V. and my dvd player up

The way to hook up the dvd player to the television to to put a cable into the output signal section of the dvd player( Ther may be many different ways to hook-up the signal s-video and component video, regular video. You must pick one of these output signal sources to put into the input section of your television by matching them up i.e s-video out to s-video input compnent video output to component video input, regular video out to regular video input. For each of these video hook-ups there will also be a set of two sound cables. Look on the back of your television for the signal input section and hook up the video cables and the sound cables to your selected input. You should do this with both units turned off in order not to damage the circuits by shorting them on cable insertions ofr causing heavy feedback in the circuits. One this connection is complete. Trun on the television first and select the TV's signal source . By pressing the input button and using the up and down arrows to find the correct selection. By matching up all three sources you now should have the correct signal path. Turn your DVD and test the controls. try using the volume control and use you dvd to to play,ff, or stop the dvd.If all this works then you have done the set up correctly and can now enjoy your dvd's on the television Hope this helps you with your problem..

ONKYO TX-SR606 Single output to TV

Hi there. for your receiver, the only time it can upconvert is when you go out as HDMI. In your current hookup (component out to tv) the signal from your cable (using a composite) will not be able to pass through the component cable. This means you either have to hook up your cable box using a component cable as well or add a composite cable (yellow) from monitor out of the receiver to the tv. Page 22 of the manual will show a diagram of the video signal flow. hope this helps.. ^_^
