That Coby DVD-937 only has Digital Audio outputs rather than inputs, which is very strange and complicates our problem immensely. You will get 5-channels with DVD or radio play, but getting 5 channels for TV is not possible without additional equipment.

The manual for the Coby mentions a "Digital Decoder Amplifier," which would work. You would connect a digital audio cable from the area marked "Coaxial" on the back of the Coby to a digital audio IN on the back of an external amplifier. You would connect the speakers to this amplifier, instead of directly to the back of the Coby. Then you would need a cable or satellite box with digital audio outs (fairly common nowadays) to another digital audio IN on the back of the amplifier. The cable or sat box you may have already, but you may need to purchase such a "Digital Decoder Amplifier" or other digital amplifier with appropriate speaker wires and 2 digital audio input slots (not to mention two digital audio cables). Fairly complex. Possibly expensive.

    This unit does have AV inputs on the back. All you do is get a pair of Red/white audio cables, and run them from the AUDIO OUTPUT of your cable box and then put them to the AV IN on the back of the DVD Player. After you do that, hit the MODE until it says AUX on the front of the DVD Player.

Coby DVD -937 home theater system. Pushed power off but will not turn on again when pushed. Outlets are good.


Could be that the power button is worn out...it is a common problem with computers as well. They are not wear tested for durability. Some of the reviews i had read concerning the model 937 are not the best, i have just bought a used one myself, and it was only used once..so i was told, however, not all channels working for speakers. The choice is, do you send it in for repair? or just buy a different brand altogether and ship that one back? you need to get estimate from electronic repair as to cost. that is the primary problem,. or could be board is shorted out in unit. in that case, get refund, or if extended warrenty have replaced.

Best of luck....

How to avoid black & white pictures.


Check the connections on your cables, you may have the composite and component cables mixed up. Use either JUST the yellow (composite) or JUST the component (Green/Red/Blue) and you should be good. Don't forget you still need the red/white for audio.

Hope this helps,

Cheers

I'd be taking the unit back ASAP for a check and swap over. When plugged in and powered up all you need is to press eject to get it open. take it back to the shop and they will confirm the problem. Don't hesitate!!
Happy Shopping!

I can't get my coby DVD 937 to play sound while watching tv. It works fine while playing a DVD or CD????


there should be an input line of just audio cable hookups (one red and one white) that you have to run and an output cable from your tv audio output of just red and white. make sure the tv says output or line out and the surround sound system says input or line in

I CAN NOT GET ALL 5 SPEAKERS TO WORK


I know this is not the answer that you want to hear, but: That television is not capable of delivering audio output to all 5 speakers - it is a stereo-only TV, which only delivers 2 channels.

Furthermore, that Coby DVD-937 only has Digital Audio outputs rather than inputs, which is very strange and complicates our problem immensely. You will get 5-channels with DVD or radio play, but getting 5 channels for TV is not possible without additional equipment.

The manual for the Coby mentions a "Digital Decoder Amplifier," which would work. You would connect a digital audio cable from the area marked "Coaxial" on the back of the Coby to a digital audio IN on the back of an external amplifier. You would connect the speakers to this amplifier, instead of directly to the back of the Coby. Then you would need a cable or satellite box with digital audio outs (fairly common nowadays) to another digital audio IN on the back of the amplifier.

No audio


You will only get stereo sound from that TV matched with that Coby instead of full surround sound, without purchasing additional equipment.
