Re: dvd player

Holding the PLAY button for 10 seconds worked for me. It turns off "PROGRESSIVE" scan mode, which is incompatible with the coaxial cable output.There was no button on the remote to do it, so I had to find this page to tell me how to reset.

Re: dvd player

Turn on power-set to dvd. If sound only (no picture)hold in on the play button till it resets. Takes about 30 seconds.

Re: dvd player

If you are useing RCA connecter change to a coax connection. In otherwords change to another connection type. The combo dvd/vcr units are not built very well.

There is no sound on my Sony SLV-D350P DVD Player / VCR Combo. The only section that works great is the VCR, but the DVD player sound just went out for some reason. I've changed the RCA cables, and...

Hi, As long as you have the picture it means that DVD's Laser Eye is Ok.. Pls Check your connections to make sure the audio and video cables of both VCR and DVD are properly hooked up to the television. Color coded cables should be matched with the jacks of equal color. Yellow corresponds to video while red and white are both audio.

Ensure the DVD is in standby mode if you are not getting picture from the VCR. The DVD cannot be running at the same time as the VCR is playing when you want to see the VCR picture.

Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for older TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use two inputs. though: any component- or S-video-equipped TV will offer sufficient inputs for both of the SLV-D350P's formats.
It's a different arrangement for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial,). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit DVD/VHS audio and video to your TV.
In conclusion,for a best tech solution I prpose you to connect DVD audio directly to your Stereo and listen as separate audio source.while Video goes to TV as usual. Hope this helps! if you need more help pls contact me..Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)

DVD Player doesn't work on DRC6355N VCR/DVD Combo

With most dvd/vcr combo units there is separate wiring. When I use my emerson combo unit I have it wired that I have to be on different inputs on my tv to view a dvd and a vhs. On some units the vcr portion is wired via a regular cable line, while the dvd portion is wired with the yellow, red, and white component cable. Try inserting a dvd and scrolling through your tv inputs until you find the picture or check your wiring to ensure nothing has come loose. If that has no result you could try wiring it differently if possible to eliminate that as a possibility.

Go Video DVD will not eject

this suggestion made on this forum worked great for me.
I don't care if it does sound silly.. smack the unit smartly over the eject tray when you press the eject button.

Sound but not picture

I have the same problem. I pushed the EZ View button to see what it would do and I lost all picture to the DVD but the VCR worked fine. I searched the WEB ALOT.... and there seems to be alot of this but no help! Well - GOOD NEWS- I have your rescue - if you haven't thrown the dang thing out yet. I went to the Samsung website and here is how to reset the V4600. Turn the unit on, then press the Fast Forward AND the Rewind buttons at the same time and hold down for 15 seconds. WHala... It's all back! Here's a link so others can view it. It gives the reset for all machines. They ARE different.

Good Luck!

I have connected my DVD/VCR to my Samsung 32 inc television but I get no sound

I had a strange issue yesterday too.

Our Samsung DVD/VCr all in one combo did a similar thing.

I used the HDMI cable for the DVD into the TV input labeled HDMI/DVD. That worked okay.

But the VCR part didn't work.
At one point I got sound but no picture. Using the RCA cables in the back on another input "Component 1"

I was trying to squeeze the best picture out of the player using the S-VHS cable.

I thought it did picture only, but the Plasma seems to be more picky about input sources.

I got everything to work keeping the DVD as a separate HDMI to Plasma TV feed.
The VCR was 3 RCA's Yellow (picture) red and white for stereo sound.

I then reset (toggled through the inputs to "reset" the TV.

It finally worked but I was two days mulling it over.

See if this works for you.
My TV was a Panasonic Plasma, but shouldn't matter.
Skip the S-VHS line and connect the inoputs with the TV off.
You MAy need to go into the input of set up menu on the TV (ours had a wrench as an icon) and set the Component 1 or 2 to "VCR".
