Question about Yamakawa DVD-238 DVD Player

2 Answers

Black TV screen when turning player on. Remote also stopped working.

This must be my mistake in setting unit up by choosing wrong option. TV screen is black now and cannot enter the setup any longer to correct the problem. No response when pressing any key, including power key on remote. Please give me a code sequence to unlock it.

Cannot see the screen Philips DVP5990 DVD player. Setting problem

You may have probably turned on Closed Caption on your TV. Unhook the DVD player to find out if it disappears. If it disappears then Closed Caption is on on your TV. Turn off Closed Caption. If cannot find how, give me the brand and model of your TV.

If you enter set up mode and do the wrong thing can you retrieve

Hi there!

With the CH DVD300 powered on,you might want to try pushing the stop button on the unit itself for about 20 seconds. That should reset the DVD player to default settings. It worked on mine.

I can only record and play back in black and white.


for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.

1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc.....
2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC"
3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.

for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"

note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.

Sound, but no picture

If you have a progressive scan button on the remote, it might change it back. Try all the video related buttons on the remote with the DVD player on.

I get a double black-and-white image when the TV is running through the VCR

I had this same problem once. Go on your dvd menu and go to settings and hit "reset default settings". That worked for me. Hope this helps.

Black box appears in TV screen

The problem with the black box happened to me. I had pushed the subtitle button on my remote by mistake. Interestingly enough, as soon as I pushed the SUBTITLE key again, on the remote, the black boxes disappeared.

It also says CC which means closed captioned-- So the bottom on my remote is Subtitle, and then on the subtitle button is cc...

I hope this helps
