Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

No picture and sound on t.v. all of a sudden

My TV is connected to a DVD player. It has been working pretty much o.k. until recently. I turned on the DVD player and TV and for a moment the DVD menu appeared. But, then it dissapeared and I haven't been able to get anything, but a dark gray screen ever since. I did not change anything on the DVD player or TV. Both items stay turned on, but there is just the gray screen.

Hello Thomas,

I apologize that you are having issues. Normally, when this sort of problem happens, it is the cord connected from the DVD player to the TV. I suggest getting a replacement cord. How can you tell what type of cord this is? If the cord is seperated into yellow, white, and red ends, then this type of cord should be replaced. If it is a coaxial cable, like the one used to carry cable to a TV, then this type of cord should be replaced. If the cord has pins on the end, like a mouse, the S-Video cord should be replaced.

Get sound and "invalid format" message displayed instead of picture


Could have still been hit by a surge. Take the back off of the TV and look at the main board were you connect your HDMI. See if it is scorched or components that blackened. Also check your DVD player on another set. Your DVD player could be the problem.

I recently purchased a KDL-40W5100 LCD Digital Color TV. I gives a great picture, but when I turn on my Panasonic DVD connected to it I get a blue snowy picture (it worked fine on the old TV)Can you help?


Hi,
This may be due to a setting on the dvd player itself. What kind of tv did you have previously? Also what kind of connection are you using to hook up the dvd player to the tv? Lastly, if you have the model number for the dvd player it will help if/when you need further assistance.
Thank you,
Lee

Lost picture on my AVR-2807


There is a video select button on the receiver. Press it and it toggles through all of the video sources. Keep pressing it until the display says video=source.

TV picture flickers


If your DVD player is separate from your tv, you might have a loose cable plug or connection. Depending on the type of flicker you have, a vertical circuit loose connection would cause this. If you could connect it to a cable or antenna it might tell you where the problem is located. A faulty circuit in the DVD might cause this too. Stargazer

Picture


yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.
