No pic, no sound, but, has all three colors illuminated?


  • 1 Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find out.
  • 2 Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
  • 3 Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the way it was.
  • 4 Press the Input button on your remote control to return to the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2. Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
  • 5 Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't receive a programming signal on the TV.
  • 6 Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
  • 7 Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player, you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on your TV.
  • 8 Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or right to turn the speakers on or off.
  • 9 Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television

    I have a Samsung HLP5063. Just bought a Onyko AV receiver with HMDI hook ups. Also connecting Dish 211VIP, and Samsung DVD connected to the receiver. I was able to get the DVD player to work, but no...


    Have you gone through your onkyo receivers setup manual. You will most likely need to adjust the settings on your Onkyo receiver. I also have an onkyo reciever and I have to assign the inputs to the video source. Being that you got sound out of the front speakes. I am assuming when you were playing out of the dvd player your reciever was only on stereo sound. Once I get feedback I can assist you further
    Thanks,

    Need help hooking up surround sound with my Sherwood DAS


    Sherwood's site has a manual for the model RV-4060 (click here to download) but not for the 4050. You might find it similar enough to help you. Otherwise you can try a Google search for generic Dolby surround connections. It's usually pretty straightforward. Connect the audio out from your source (TV, DVD player, etc.) to the receiver. Connect the surround channel speakers to the appropriate rear panel jacks. Fire up a source you know has Dolby encoding, turn on receiver's Dolby processing from the front panel, and experiment with the different modes to hear what you get. Just remember you can't break anything just by pressing buttons.

    I want to hook a system


    you will only be able to get digital surround( dolby digital ) from your dvd player( by the coax or optical digital connections ) , the rest will only be in virtual surround

    from the dtv box plug the yellow video jack(RCA) into the vcr video input , then plug the audio jack or jacks into the audio input on the vcr. from the vcr hook the audio out to the audio in on the reciever( tv/vcr/sat... input ) , then also connect RF out from the VCR to RF in on the TV .
    for the dvd player hook the "s-video out" to the "s-video in" on the tv , then the audio L and R on same s-video input , then send the audio out connection on tv to L and R input on reciever dvd L and R input , then you will need to connect the optical from the dvd player to the reciever or coax connections for the dolby digital on the reciever to work

    Hi there, i have a Kenwood V7090D AV receiver. the problem is a) i cannot switch the DSP off without 5.1 switching off as well and b) DSP affests all channels when speakers B is swithched on. if u can...


    If you have only Left and Right connected the receiver wont know what to send to the other speakers without some kind of DSP.
    If you are using an optical or coaxial connection from a dvd player it may utilize the other speakers if the DVD player is providing that information.
    If you dont like the DSP but still want to have all the speakers function while listening to non surround sound material try setting the DSP flat or to a reduced setting.

    If you are listening to a DVD with surround sound information and the DSP off still provides no sound to the rear speakers check the manual for that receiver for a "auto surround detection" setting.
    good luck.

    Dvd plays can see picture but no sound


    Check all your connections.
    Also please let me know how you have it connected currently, what is the model of the dvd player and the television. Are you running through an AV receiver?
    one ting to try is connecting ONLY the red and white audio connectors from teh dvdplayer to the correct input on the tv while it is on. if you hear a slight "pop" [not harmful] you have the right input and there might just be a problem with the dvd player itself.
    be sure you have the right audio track selected or try playing a cd.
