Component cables produce "no signal" or "check signal cable"
I bought a 32" samsung HDTV along with some component cables to hook my DVD player up to it. i plugged the cables in and got a "check signal cable" notice on my TV. i thought maybe unplugging everything and replugging would do the trick but it just resulted in a "no signal" sign.

It sounds like something is shorting out do to an incorrect connection. Make sure you are matching the correct colors if using composite (RCA) or component cables.If you are using composite than hook the yellow for video and red and white for left and right audio. For component cables use the red blue and green for video instead of yellow and use the red and white from the composite cable for left and right audio leaving the yellow unplugged. You should have the cables coming from the DVD players output going to the TV's input. Select the same input on the TV that you have plugged into. If you are using coax cable through the DVD player if it has a tuner than you will need to change the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on what the DVD is switched to. After you are done with the DVD player be sure to turn the power off so the cable can work properly. I am guessing here since I don't have much info to work with so I hope this helped you.
Good day sir, your inquiry about the green lcd screen can be caused by several things. 1. The monitor/tv produces 3 colors, red green and blue, the tv mixes these three colors to produce the picture. a loss of red and blue produces this green screen. so check the cable, specially the red and blue jack of the component inputs, and the red and blue cable. 2. there may be loose contact on the signal cable. try using the video input instead of the component input. 3. the dvd player may have the problem, check the player component out jack. a loose jack port can cause these problem. hope this may help. thanks
I think your cable box is old version together with weak signal caused this problem. I guess you are using coaxial cable hooked up to the TV at TV cable input jack.
At the TV there are some better quality inputs which are real digital transmission (audio and video) HDMI and components (digital video and analog audio).
The most simple and best quality is HDMI provided the box has HDMI output.
Secondly is component inputs. There are 5 cable trends in which 3 of them (red, blue, green) for video and the rest 2 are for audio (red , white). The cable box should have same color accordingly as ouput. Please note that the color must be matched otherwise you will see the screen has one color only.
Playing a DVD player to see picture good or not. If picture is good, TV has no problem at all.
You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!
When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes
The input buttons on the remote are shared, e.g. for component, press once for component1 and twice for component2. Same for HDMI inputs. If I remember correctly, the video button is shared by the composite input and the svideo input.
Or you can use the input button on the remote to get each input directly.
Please check what the DVD player is configured for. For 480p (PS) it can only output through component.
If you are using the same cables,same input and the cable box works ok. I would look into the settings of the DVD player. Such as is it a progressive playback and is progressive turned on. It is not turned on by default because not all TV's could handle progressive in.
