Check your cabling from the DVD to the TV. If you have a 3 plug connection, verify they are plugged into the right spots.

    Have you verified that the TV is turned to the correct channel? It's usually channel 3 or 4.



    What is your setup like? Is it just a TV and a DVD? Or is there a Cable or Satelite box in between? Are you connecting to a sound system? Can you run me through the connection path? (ie. out of the DVD into the TV, out of the Satelite box into the TV, etc.) Is the DVD player connected directly to the TV into the AUX1 port. What cabling are you using, Coax, SVGA etc.

Insert a VHS tape, hear sound, no picture? DVD working fine, both sound & picture. What am I doing wrong?


Likely a damaged video tape got in the unit and blocked the video heads--once blocked no picture but sound will be the case---the heads can be manually cleaned if you know how---The real issue will be to locate which tape was in the unit when this happened--clear the heads and put it back and right back to no image......

Cleaning tapes are only slightly effective--most shops (if you can find one who even works on this gear) will not charge much to clean the heads.

When I insert a DVD I hear a rattling wabble sound. The movie never plays


Unless you have another disc or something else jammed in there I would say it is a sure sign of a defective transport. Probably a 100 dollar repair.

Hope this helps,

Thanks,

I have some movies (format *.avi) that I cannot see (I can hear the sound, though) when I attempt to play once burned as data on a DVD. The message says "video codec not available". I made those movies...


Hello Aristica,
There is No software download for the DVD plaer itself. Where you are going wrong is the Format ie avi that DVD player does not support it. You can Google free software to download which will allow you to convert you AVI file to something that the Dvd player will play:

DVD Video • VCD • SVCD • DVD-R • DVD-RW • DVD+R • DVD+RW • CD (Audio) • CD-R • CD-RW • Picture CD • Divx

so If you type in Google free Avi converter Then this will list several. You really want one that will convert to DIVX or VOB those will definately play on your DVD player.

I hope this has help you out. I tryed not to go into too much detail.

Cheers

DVD PLAYER NOT READING DISC


Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....
