Y Pb Pr connections not working correctly

Lately my TV has been turning itself off and has to be unplugged to get it to come back on. 2 nights ago this happened and when I turned it back on and switched the TV to watch a DVD the DVD would only display in black and white and the picture was bad. I thought it was my DVD player/sound system because it was old so I replaced it yesterday and I still have the same problem. I tried using both Y Pb Pr connections with no success.

I've tried connecting a Sony DVD player to my TV using Pb Pr V cables. I get a picture, but no sound.

The cable u are using it is the S-video cable?Yes,this cable dosen't support audio.Must used a RCA component cable like R,W cable connected between the tv and the DVD player to get sound.

Only get black and white picture using vcr/dvd why picture

Hi There,

The most likely reason for this is that your connections between the DVD player are incorrect. This usually happens when a Composite cable is connected to one the Component input sockets on the back of the TV.

If you are are using a composite cable (red, white, yellow plugs), please make sure the yellow plug is not connected to a socket labelled Y, Pb/Cb, or Pr/Cr on the back of the TV or the DVD/VCR. The yellow plug needs to be connected to a VIDEO OUT socket on the back of the DVD/VCR and a VIDEO IN socket on the back of the TV.

Do not use sockets labelled Y, Pb/Cb, or Pr/Cr on either of them.

If you are unable to determine which sockets to use, please let me know the brand and model number of your VCR/DVD and confirm the model number of your TV is GV42L. I will then be able to draw you a diagram showing the correct connections to use.

Hope this helps.

Connection for y pb pr cables

The color-coding used for the RCA connectors is nearly universal:
  • composite video - yellow
  • audio - red (right channel) and white (left channel)
  • component video - green (Y), blue (Pb) and red (Pr)
Also, these jacks are normally labeled in print as well, although it's sometimes hard to read the text on some equipment.

Match the connectors on your converter box to the corresponding connectors on the TV. If your converter box was one purchased with the $40 US Government coupon, it may not have the component video outputs. The only coupon-eligible boxes are the most basic models, and they sometimes have only RF (channel 3 or 4) and composite video outputs available.

HDMI Cable problem

Well, first you might want to try another hdmi connection behind your TV.If it appears to have the same message,you need to check your TV setup and be sure the HDMI video is active.
Secondly,go with the recommendation of the set top box.You will use component video cable to connect from your set top box component video output(Y PR PB) to your TV (Y PR PB) and see if that actually work.If so,just use the cable box for the time being and call your cable company for another cable box to replace this one!

Progressive scan

Approach 1: Try unplugging the DVD player from the wall for an hour, then plug it back in. It may or may not reset to the factory default settings, which might put it back to "interlaced" output.

Approach 2: When a DVD player is switched to progressive scan, it uses outputs different from the coax cable "TV out" and the COMPOSITE outputs (often yellow, white and red RCA jacks. If you have the proper cables, you can connect them to both the DVD player and the TV, then cycle through the AKAI TV's "source" settings to switch the TV to the new cable input location.

For example, if the DVD player has "component" outputs (marked Y, Pb, and Pr) hook up RCA plug cables between those jacks and the AKAI TV's Y, Pb, and Pr jacks. Connect the Y to Y, the Pb to Pb, and the Pr to Pr, of course. The LCT3285TA has two sets of these jacks. Either will do, but note if you use YPbPr1 or YPbPr2. Once this is done, push the source button on the side of the TV (or on the TV's original remote) until it shows YPbPr1 or (...2 if that's what you connected). If the DVD player is on, you should now see the DVD menu or the picture from the DVD. Now you can use the DVD remote to switch back from progressive to interlaced video. The picture may go blank at this step.

Now push the TV's source button again until you see "3" or whatever channel you had been using in the upper left of the TV screen. You should see the DVD output picture (menu) again. Back to normal.

If your DVD player doesn't have YPbPr connections, it may have a HDMI or DVI jack.
The AKAI TV also has a HDMI input, you *could* get and HDMI cable (or DVI to HDMI cable if the DVD player doesn't have HDMI), hook it up, then cycle through the TV's source inputs until you see the HDMI in the upper left... in the manner I've just described.

Final Note: The progressive scan output of your DVD will actually give you a much better picture on your AKAI TV than its interlaced output. To take advantage of that, you'll have to hook up YPbPr or HDMI cables between player and TV and switch sources when you want to watch DVDs instead of TV programs. You may need additional cables to send the stereo audio output from the player to the TV for the progressive source hookup.
