10 Answers

Audio but no video

I just purchased the sony ht-7200dh. I hooked up my xbox to it and I have no video but I have great audio. I also hooked the hd dvd player that came with the unit and I dont get video only audio. I've tried all input selections switching wires around i'm about to send the thing back. I have an HDMI cable running from my DVR box to the 7200dh and an HDMI cable running from the 7200dh to my LCD TV. Is there any help for me???

  • mgustavo27 Dec 18, 2008

    All things work when hooked directly to tv via component cables and tv works when connected from receiver to tv via HDMI. I just need some video.

  • mgustavo27 Dec 18, 2008

    The only thing that doesnt work is the video for the xbox and the dvd player through the receiver. The tv works with the surround sound perfectly. The xbox works perfectly when hooked directly to the tv. the dvd player works perfectly when hooked directly to the tv. TV not bad.

  • mgustavo27 Dec 18, 2008

Hi

Just adding to some experts say. and I illustrate simple connection:

  • Output of Xbox and DVD to input of your TV/Sony and set to video. check if there's an output.
  • if still not working replace your cable with new one. or check cable with multi tester. if there's a continuity.
  • if still not working, may be the input of your TV/Sony have some problem.

    • those the video output of your xbox and dvd is connected directly to input of your sony ht-7200dh.

    • at the settings of your sony ht-7200dh is the same as what the port connection you are using

Welcome to fixya,

i would try to hook up the audio directly to the stereo (for example dvd player to dvd audio input on back stereo and xbox to the VCR audio input) and take the video for each unit and hook them directly to the TV and see if you get picture that way. I have hook up my that way because i had the same problem your having let me know if that works for you.

thank you for using Fixya - Tom

Check the cord, do you have a tester??? twist the menu on RESISTANCE x1 and test the tip of the wire on red at the tip of the chord and the black on the other side, you must test the cord before you connect it.

Check your cable on another device to ensure it is in working condition and then check to make sure you have your settings correct on your Xbox 360. Try a different HDMI input if possible.

This is more of a suggestion but is it possible the cord could be bad? Otherwise I would suggest taking the TV back in and seeing if thats the Issue.

I think this may be only due to the error in connecting the correct cables to the ports provided for the output.the systematic way of connecting the input and output cables may be described in the manual provided along with the unit.otherwise it may be due to some output video error or some damage to the output.try the video cable with all the ports or try to call the local dealer who have given it to you,as they have the responsibility on the products they have sold.thank you

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try simple connections:

  • DVD component or composite connection straight to the LCD TV;
  • play a known good DVD movie, confirm that it works;
  • remove connections to rear of DVD, get a set of identical RCA cables and hook to rear of DVD;
  • the OUTs of the DVD goes to IN of receiver;
  • confirm that it works;
  • remove RCA cables from DVD to receiver and replace with HDMI;
  • change setting on receiver, confirm that it works;
  • replace RCA cables from receiver to LCD TV with HDMI;
  • change settings on TV, confirm that it works;
  • do the same for the DVR box and XBox;
  • at anytime it does not work, swap HDMI cables.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    Hi again,

    By your comment "The xbox works perfectly when hooked directly to the tv. the dvd player works perfectly when hooked directly to the tv.", I am assuming that on both instances, you are using HDMI. That then makes all in order. The only addition/new to the equation is when you hook the Sony HT-7200DH making it the only suspect, narrowing down possibilities to:


    • configuration/setup error; or

    • a defective Sony HT-7200DH.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Dec 18, 2008

    Or if you care to try the composite or component and it will work, then the fault is further narrowed down to HDMI or a compatibility issue.

You should have a menu selection on the Sony HT7200 that will allow you to turn the HDMI video on. Check your user manual and find the section on Video output and then get to that in the setup menu and make sure the HDMI  video is turned on. It may only be looking for the other video inputs to output to the TV.

Cable TV blinks on and off when connected to my Onkyo receiver.


I have the same problem.  It only occurs with my HD DVR (HDMI cable), not my blue ray (HDMI cable), or my xbox and wii (component video).  Video and audio cutout is random and drives the family nuts.  I am desperate for a solution.

Sony str-dg820. having a problem getting video on tv


Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

How to connect new HD cable box to receiver


HI:
You are using a new HD Cable box, that are using componet video cables for HD, Unfortunetly this receiver does not have componet inputs, so you will just have to run the audio from the televison directly to the receiver by connecting the video out and audio out from the television to the receiver's video Input one. This will require a normal RCA composite cables yellow,red,white. Connect one end of each of the cables to televisions output terminals, and the other to the input one on the receiver. Note: Your TV might have a seperate term called Monitor out, Connect the yellow here, and the red and white to audio out. You can do the same for the DVD but you have to use the same cables,Also the television will not display HD picture this way as this is not a HDTV Receiver. If you just want TV sound to the receiver then do not use the video(Yellow) cable just use the audio out terminals from the tv and connect to Input one on the receiver. you can do this with the cable box also but you have to use RCA type cables . If you want the full HD experience then a new up todate receiver is necessary.

Check the setup menu on your TV. Many models require that you choose between using the internal speakers and using the speaker outputs. Sometimes the TV menu choices are "FIXED" (audio output) or "VARIABLE" (internal speakers).

Onkyo HT-SR750


Check out Onkyo's website: The HT-SR 800 description says "a separate audio connection is necessary" Maybe it is true for the --750 too.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.

You need an Optical Audio1.gif Cable. Hook one end to the HD Cable Box and the other to your Surround Sound System1.gif. If you dont have an Optical Cable to your Cable Box, then try using the usual audio cables. But, I have HD and it worked with the Optical Audio Cable.

Hook up


Karri, I do not have the photo of the back, but attached is a general wiring diagram for any Audio-video Home theater system. If you have a Home Theater Receiver, then hook it up as the diagram. If not, hook it up per the comments in the diagram. This is how I hooked up my ONKYO HT system with my SONY Combo DVD recorder and my Mitsubishi TV. One thing to note on Combos, is that the VCR Tape section will not play through the High Definition connections (HDMI, and Digital Audio). You have to use the older method of Audio-Video (AV) cables or the Co-axial antenna cables. You can ask more questions if there is any confusions. Hope this helps you. Good luck.
