Question about Panasonic PT-53WX42 53" Rear Projection Television

Component Video inputs do not work

Bought this TV new about 4 years ago. Used very little. TV requires component video inputs for high definition. Tried to use TV last week and found that neither of the component video inputs worked. Standard video inputs work fine. Connected Direct TV receiver to each component video input (both component 1 and component 2) - got sound but no picture. Connected DVD to each component video input - again, sound but no picture. Tried different component cable set, no difference. Connected DVD using an s-video cable to standard video input and got both sound and picture, so the DVD player is working. Obviously neither of the component video inputs work. I used to repair televisions back in the days of tubes, but have not touched any TV in years. What next?

    For the past six months I have a problem with no sound on my TV. Usually I would just reboot my cable box and the sound would come back. Last time was 2 months ago. Sound has gone out again and my little trick did not work. THinking that it was my cable box, I went and exchanged my cable boxes for the latest ones, but my little trick did not work this time...still no sound, any suggestions

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

Terminals and Connections Dual HDMI digital inputs with HDCP (High Definition Content Protection) offer an uncompressed solution to the transmission and display of high definition video and audio content. All JVC HD-ILA TVs also include dual auto sensing component video inputs, assuring the best possible picture quality whether a viewer is using DTV, D-VHS or DVD, and three S-Video (two rear, one front) inputs and four AV inputs (three rear, one front).

HDMI offers exceptional video and audio quality with a single quick-disconnect connector. It supports multi-channel digital audio transmissions and component video color spacing for true rendering of HD video.

When hooking up blu ray with hdmi to component converter i get audio but no video just dots and lines on the tv


Hi Joanne
I would suspect the quality of component converter device...

HDMI is the latest state of the art for HD (High Definition 1080) video signal. Poor cables or poor connectors can cause weird results.
It's best to go from HDMI to HDMI.
If the tv doesn't have a HDMI input then it probably can't handle the newer standard.
Component Video is an old standard for video before we got high definition. It uses three separate wires.
Try swapping the coloured wires around to see the result.
Good Luck

Video Does not work on New Magnavox TV


Hi, it sounds like your problem is that you've selected the wrong "video input" for your DVD player. Your new television most likely has at least 3-4 (sometimes 6-7) different inputs for video. With your DVD player connected and turned on, press the "Source" button on your TV to cycle through the different inputs. Be sure to wait 2-4 seconds between selections to give your TV enough time to switch inputs. If your DVD player has "color coded" output cables, it's most likely a "component" video connection. See if one of your video inputs on the TV is called "Component". Some other video types are Video, DTV, HDMI, SVideo, Component, Composite, RGB, PC Input, etc...

DVD hockup to 37"VIZIO TV


There is no reason that any video player with RCA video/connections cannot be used with your new TV. However, you will not experience any increase in definition, even if your TV is High Definition.
If you used a Component connection from your DVD player (three cables for Video), all that is required is that your TV have Component cable inputs.

Is the sylvania tv no. 6419td HD compatible


If by HD compatible you're talking about the new digital signal, if you're TV is more than 3 years old, the answer is no. However, if you're talking about being capable of displaying a high definition picture (720p or 1018i or 1080p) then you can determine this by looking at the inputs on the back of the set. If you have component inputs which are red, blue, and green for video and a red and white for audio, or an HDMI input, then, yes, the TV is HD ready. S-video and composite video (yellow video input) cannot support a high definition picture.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.I hope I've earned a positive rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Get ''not supported ''message on vx-1018-ah


Verify this is a Pioneer VSX-1018AH.

The manual explains it all... The problem is probably an incompatible setting on your source.

Search for "not support" in the manual...

http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Unassigned+Content/VSX-1018AH-K+OPERATING+INSTRUCTIONS

I think this may do it... From Page 86...

No picture or sound. • This receiver is HDCP-compatible. Check that the components you are connecting are also HDCPcompatible.
If they are not, please connect them using the component or composite video jacks.
• Depending on the connected source component, it’s possible that it will not work with this receiver
(even if it is HDCP-compatible). In this case, connect using the component or composite video jacks
between source and receiver.
• If the problem still persists when connecting your HDMI component directly to your monitor,
please consult the component or monitor manual or contact the manufacturer for support.
• If video images do not appear on your TV or flat panel TV, try adjusting the resolution, DeepColor
or other setting for your component.
If ‘NOT SUPPORT’ appears in the receiver’s display, try adjusting the resolution, DeepColor or
other setting for your component.
• While analog video signals are being output over HDMI, use a separate connection for audio
output.
• When this receiver reproduces MULTI CH IN audio sources with the HDMI setting set to
THROUGH, you cannot hear audio output from all channels. In this case, make a digital or analog
audio connection.
• To output signals in DeepColor, use an HDMI cable (high speed HDMI cable) to connect this
receiver to a component or TV with the DeepColor feature.

Check the HDMI Control (Page 65-66 of the manual). It only works with Pioneer Flat Panel TV's. Also check Page 83 for "No image is output..."

No image is output when an
input is selected.
• Check the video connections of the source component (see page 18).
For high-definition video (using component video connections), or when digital video conversion
is switched off (in Setting the Video options on page 72), you must connect your TV to this receiver
using the same type of video cable as you used to connect your video component.
• Make sure the input assignment is correct for components connected using component or HDMI
cables (see The Input Setup menu on page 67).
• Check the video output settings of the source component.
• Check that the video input you selected on your TV is correct.
Some components (such as video game units) have resolutions that may not be converted. If
adjusting this receiver’s Resolution setting (in Setting the Video options on page 72) and/or the
resolution settings on your component or display doesn’t work, try switching Digital Video
Conversion (in Setting the Video options on page 72) OFF
