Matsui MAT PL 800: Cannot change from AV IN to AV OUT mode

I cannot connect my Matsui MAT PL800 directly to my TV, so I recently tried to connect my Matsui MAT PL800 to my TV via VCR. On plugging the co-axial video (yellow) and audio (red/white) cables to the appropriate inputs of my VCR and the jack plug of the same cables to the AV OUT port of my MAT PL800 and selecting Mode, the AV IN setting was displayed on the PL 800 screen. However, on pressing the Mode button on the handset, nothing happened and the setting remained at AV IN.

I have even used the co-axial ports for other external devices that connect to my TV, such as DVD player and Freeview box, but the AV IN setting result always remains unchanged.

Has anyone else had this same problem?

SOURCE: Video Input

Are you sure that the source is generating a video signal? It is extremely rare for both front and rear Video Input sockets to fail simultaneoisly. from your description, i would suspect the cable connecting the Viseo out of your DVD player / Video Game than the Video Input ports of the TV. If you have another cable, just try again with that. Or, try using the Red to red cable into the Yellow port, using one end at the DVD player and the other at the TV Video Input. If there is image, then it is confirmed that the cable is faulty, and you can get a replacement cable for a few bucks at any Video store.

go to Wal Mart and buy a cable, its the cable with a red end an yellow end and a white end. Your TV does NOT support stereo sound, so you only need the white cable for sound, the yellow is for video.

SOURCE: Problem dubbing VCR - DVD

I have 3 of these machines. I do not think it likes theRW disc's. Two of my machines are 4X & one is 8X. I have very great success with 4X DVD-R & 8X DVD-R disc's. I hear they have a fix for upgrading to 8X speed. Here is the link with the information:

You can still buy the 8X speed disc's on the internet. Hope you can get the machine to work, because I love the ones I have.

I'm trying to hookup my Toshiba DR430KU to an older tv that require an RF Modulator. I get a skewded sideways picture. Does This DVDR compatable with a RF Modulator?


Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).

RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.

RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.

I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.

How to change from tv to dvd mode


the difference between tv and av, is that av has no showers on the screen. if you change to av you will notice a blue screen, connect your yellow on vedio output and white/ red on audio out of tv
note- before connecting to a vedio touch a tip of your vedio cable some lines will show on your screen, if touch your audio tip harming noise will sound on your tv. if this two happens then you know that your cables are okey. hold your channel button on your tv, channel will start runing after all rf channels finish, tv will go to av.

Setting up a new Philips DVD Recorder


You can download Philips manuals from http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpproduct_selector.pl?scy=GB&slg=ENG

although the problem seems to be that you need to select the correct AV channel on your TV. The connection on the TV that you have used will be labelled.

VIDEO/DVD RECORDER


Ok here is a small checklist for you before going into panic mode.
  1. Most combo DVD/VID players will have a button on the face of the unit for switching between DVD & VIDEO, ensure this is set for the correct mode of operation.
  2. AV channel on TV's come in several different modes for multi outlets on the TV itself (ie: it may have more then 1 outlet for AV - rear, side & front on some TV's) ensure you have the correct AV channel selected.
  3. Check the connection configuration in your user manual, there may also be incorrect connection to the TV or Unit itself.
  4. The yellow lead usually is the Video lead ( this is for both modes DVD & VIDEO ), this is the one that is most likely incorrectly connected. Double check where it needs to go. The correct lead & socket should also be yellow if this is the case.
  5. AV in and AV out - Make sure you check both on the TV and the unit for the label AV IN and AV OUT, this is the most common connection error, it should be AV OUT from the unit > AV IN on the TV ( mostly the rear connection points will have this as with the ones on the rear of the unit )
  6. One other possible scenario is that you are not using AV leads ( commonly referred to as RCA Leads ) - you may well be using 5.1 connections ( All in one bundle that connects directly to the back of the unit and also the TV. This usually eliminates connection errors as it has several smaller pins in either end that connect at both ends. It is highly unlikely that these are incorrect in any case. This would most likely only be on the incorrect TV channel selection. Ensure you are on the correct one by cycling the channels with the unit playing either DVD or VIDEO.
  7. There can be other scenarios that will make your life difficult, however i feel in the majority of cases, the ones described above are the most common offenders.
  8. Other then this, perhaps consider having the unit checked by a professional ( to ensure it works normally ) this would confirm if either the unit is faulty and needs repair or the connections are incorrect.
Hope some of this helps, as most of these problems can be solved on the spot with a quick visual, however seeing your current setup is not possible and these tips are the most likely to help. Trust you find it's something simple of this nature.
