Question about Coby DVD-224 DVD Player

1 Answer

Coby DVD player set up

In an emergency rush (92-year-old grandma needs something to watch while we wait a week for cable) I recently unplugged my Coby DVD player, brought it to my new house, and I can't remember where the red, yellow and white plugs go in the back of the DVD player and TV. The back of the TV has two columns of red, yellow and white holes - which column do I use? And the DVD player has a ton of different holes with different colors. Which do I use?
I'm sorry I don't have more details...the DVD payer is at home and I'm at work. Maybe you can help me, though.
Much appreciated! Brenna

Brenna,
Here are some things to remember when messing with cables TO and FROM electronic audio/visual
devices. YELLOW connectors are for what you SEE on the screen of your TV or other viewing device.
The RED/WHITE connectors are for what your ears will hear, LEFT/RIGHT in stereo or mono.
Now all you need to do is connect the YELLOW output jack of your Coby to the YELLOW video
input jack on TV. You must remember forever and ever that the YELLOW jacks and plugs never
contain or transmit or move TV channels or CABLE channels or DISH channels. The YELLOW cable
which has plugs at both ends goes to jacks (output to input) and carries/transmits BASEBAND VIDEO signals only. Now all you need to do is make the TV stop listening to it's antenna in, and to
start listening to the YELLOW/RED/WHITE jacks on the back of the TV. You will need find out how
to put TV into MONITOR mode, or AUX mode, or VIDEO INPUT 1. Basically just match colors and
OUTPUTS to INPUTS. Hope this helps you out.

I have a coby vzon that says wrong disc but reads cds then when cleaned and blown loads up mp2 instead of dvd or says wrong disc still please help.


All DVD players use a dual laser pick up. One laser is for CD/VCD/MP3 and the other laser is only for DVD. If you have watched more DVD and less CD's you could be having a problem with the DVD laser. Must have become week and the system cannot read the disk. Change of the lens unit will solve your problem.

I just got my DVD-VR375. I want to watch a rented movie. The TV is about 5 years old and cable is connected directly to the TV. I connected the red white and yellow from the dvd av out to the video in on...


If you have the original remote for the TV there should be a button that says Input or I Select or something similar. You need to change your "Input" to L1 or L2 or AV, or something similar.

I have 2 dvd players that have gone out on me this week. One does not read the disk and the other door won't open. Is there a lens cleaner for dvds that might work:


The Coby 224 is a bottom of the line "piece of cheap Chinese crud". No offense, but this is a DVD player that costs more to ship it over here than it does to manufacture the product. Purchase something a bit more substantial for continued dvd viewing.

I hate to say it, but there are likely 2 issues that can cause the "Wrong Disk" error. The zone of the DVD's, as you mentioned, is a huge issue for distro. companies that sell the DVD's. They have been working with manufacturers for years to improve the protection of the zone restrictions. It is possible that the unit's firmware now includes some features to essentially block "zone-free" disks. You could try by testing - First: an original DVD from the proper zone, then, an original DVD from the improper zone, then, a copied DVD from both. Please list the outcomes of all the tested DVD's

Ill move on to the other possibility if this is not the answer.

Good luck, Ted

New dvd movie will not play


I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
ENHANCED FEATURES
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.
