Re: Problem with RCA P42WED33 picture

If you have the tv on cinerama mode, it is black. If you use the scroll on picture mode it works

Connecting dvd player to a television need a diagram t.u


If you are going to hook up the DVD player to your TV through RCA cords, see the picture below.


Hook up the yellow RCA cord at the Video-in at the back of the TV and the other end at the Video out of the DVD player to get the video.

Hook up the red RCA cord at the Audio-in(right channel) at the back of the TV and the other end at the Audio-out of the DVD player.
Hook up the white/black RCA cord at the Audio-in(left channel) at the back of the TV and the other end at the Audio-out of the DVD player.

Red and white/black RCA cord is for the sound.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

I have an older DVD player and have a 32" LCD Vizon HD TV. When we try to play our commercial DVD's it show on the television as black and white with sound and good picture. It seems there is a conflict...

This sounds like a PAL vs NTSC problem.
Check that the TV, the DVD and the Player are all of the same system. If not, some DVD players you can choose / change the output system from PAL to NTSC and vice versa.
You may also change the input system of your TV if it does support it.
Let me know if this helps.

I have a 42 inch Insignia plasma tv. I only hook

If you have the audio cables hook up correctly to where the video cable from DVD is connected to, it should be RED and WHITE wires for audio. Then go to on screen audio setup menu to see if the speakers is turn off in the menu. Also try hooking up the powered PC speakers to the AUDIO LINE out RCA jacks to see if you get the sound OK there.

Turn on the tv the green power light comes on but there is no picture whatsoever

Is there a PC mode and hook up on this model? If so try and use the TV as a monitor for your PC. If it has a picture your tuner could be the problem. I had the same cinerio with my new Toshiba 42" Hdtv. Hooked up a DVD player recorder with a tuner and it worked. It had a bad tuner in the TV. You don't mention if there is sound. If you have sound then it maybe the light for the LCD pic.

Suround sound does not work on my 26" proscan

Hello Brian,
I understand your problem and I have a surround sound system hooked up to my TV and I think I might be able to help you because I have done this in the past.

RCA Setup Only
  1. On your TV you should see an Audio Out slot. Plug your RCA Cord into that slot.
  2. Then plug the RCA Cord to the Audio In slot on the Surround Sound System.
  3. Then, if your Surround System is the type with a DVD in it continue step 4.
  4. You should see a Yellow Video slot on the TV. Plug the Yellow RCA into that slot.
  5. If you do not have one of those, you would need to pick one up at a Electronics Store.
HDMI Setup Only
  1. Take the HDMI cord and plug on end into the slot on the TV.
  2. Take the other end of the HDMI cord and plug that into the slot on the Sound System.
I hope this helps you out.
If you have any questions, let me know

Thank you for using Fix Ya!

Proscan tv surround sound hook up

This depends on whether you have digital cable box or not. If you have a Digi Cable Box look for the red/white RCA output and connect this via RCA cable to the Red/White Audio input on your surround.

If just Basic Cable look for a red/white audio output on the back of your televison. connect this to the Red/white in on your surround. Could be called tv in or auxillary.

No sound from TV only when playing DVD

Check carefully the RCA conections or others.Sometimes this conections break inwards end cause this problems.Check also the lead and the Set up from surround sound.Verify if the TV has settings for this kind of operation. A strong hug !!!
