Cant get higher resolution

I bought an up-conversion dvd player from zenith and I hooked it up to the component inputs. whenever I try to bring the resolution anywhere above 480i I get a distorted terrible picture- i can't even make it to 720. Is this tv not equipped to handle such resolutions? what do i do to get them- I have tried with protected and unprotected dvds and the same thing happens.

Read the manual on the tv and see if it is capable of all the resolutions

Change dpi from 480 to 1080

to change the resolution you will need to change the source. So if it's a DVD player then you have to make sure it's outputting the higher resolution. If it's a cable box the same thing. also to get 1080 you need to have component or HDMI hooked up. If you need further assistance let me know.
thank you,

How do i get a picture thru component 2 so i can get 1080i quality. i only get a picture thru component 1.

You would need to unplug the input cables in the TV and move them to component 2 on the back. Assuming your input is at 1080i in the first place (ie, the cable box or digital satelite signal is coming in at the proper resolution). One way to check is to connect an external DVD player to the component 1 input and see if the picture is higher quality than the signal from the Cable/Satelite. Not sure changing to component 2 is going to make a difference. Good luck and let me know what happens!

I am trying to hook up my wii to my LED TV. It

You don't need component cables. Just use the regular AV connector that comes with the Wii and put the video (yellow) in the video spot that is also labeled "VIDEO" and "Y" on the tv...but the red and white (left and right audio) need to go into the farthest red and white connections...DO NOT put them into the ones labeled "Component Pr and Pb." It works perfectly...I just had to figure this out myself.

DVD Hookup

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.

Dvd picture

Make sure component cables match colors between Television and DVD player. It should be TV input to DVD output. Try to play at least two DVDs to make sure its not a single DVD that may be having an issue. Also, adjust your television's picture setting to make sure its set to normal. Also access your DVD players menu to make sure the setting are set to normal as well.If it doesn't correct the problem, use a different component input on your television. If problem persists, you may need to contact the DVD player manufacturer to see if its still under warranty and not defective. Good Luck.

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD

Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck

DVD cables

You have to plug your DVD cables into the "input" connectors on your tv. Input audio and input video. Also there is either a switch on the back of your tv or in your menu where you have to choose "component video". Or it might be labled Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc. You might have both a switch on your TV and a choice in your menu. If so, both have to be set to "component Video. Sometimes on the back of your set, the switch is not labeled. It just has "arrowed" lines coming from the different switch positions and leading to the "outputs and inputs" on the back of the set. Set the switch so that the lines lead to the red, blue and green INPUTS on the back of your set. Your problem is not serious. It is just a matter of "telling" your TV that you are using "component video". Component video is when you are using the red, blue, and green inputs. It is also possible that your DVD has another output besides "component out" and also has a switch. Make sure this switch on the back of your DVD is in the "component OUT" position. Your DVD might also have a connector on the back that looks like connectors on the back of VCR's and most TVs. This is an "F" connector and the cable has to be screwed on. It's just like a cable tv cable. Screw a cable into the "out to tv" on the back of your DVD and screw the other end of the cable into the "RF" INPUT (or cable input) connector on the back of your tv. Be sure to look ALL through your TV menu and DVD menu. The DVD sets to "component OUT" and the TV sets to "component IN". Hope this helps.

I assume you are saying that the DVD player only has RCA jacks. It would be good to know if the DVD player has Component output as that is the preferred output. You will know this if the RCA jacks on the DVD are color coded green, blue and red.... You would by a set of component cables, hook to DVD matching colors and then find the same color code on input of the TV. You must also run the red and white cable from the DVD output to the TV input for audio. The input on the TV would be labled component in or input and a #. Simply select the input, or source button on remote to select the input that matches your choice and all should function. If there is no component on the DVD output and only a composit hook up (color code by yellow, red, white) again just match that to the corresponding input on the TV.

"No Signal" when DVD player is hooked up via component video

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.
