Split screen with component cables.

I have the Samsung BDP1500. I am having problems because when I hook up the component cables as recomended the image comes through as a split screen with the same intro screen on each half. How do I fix this?

    gopi20,

    Changing the cables did'nt work. The cables are hooked up right. What else could it be?

  • leatherneck0 Feb 08, 2009

    It's not the wiring. What else.

  • leatherneck0 Feb 08, 2009

    I've tried it with nothing but the BDPlayer plugged in. Still have the same problem.

  • leatherneck0 Feb 08, 2009

    My TV is a JVC IArt. It does not have "Twin Picture" capability.

  • leatherneck0 Feb 08, 2009

    Reset the TV. That didn't work.

The TV does not have picture in picture settings, or twin picture settings, but the blue ray has zoom and pip capabilities.

Just unplug the blue ray from power for ten minutes to reset its settings.

If after reset you still get the problem , then there is an internal fault, in that case contact Sony.

I think "Twin Picture" function is activated in TV because twin picture is able to present such effect.
Please check TV Menu and disable twin picture.
I do not see any problem with Samsung BD-P1500 blu ray player.
Thanks.

    Please hook blu ray with another TV just to confirm that player has problem. Upon confirmation, change blu ray menu for video out format as it seems some kind of sync delay.

Hi, This sometimes happens when you have more than one video source. If you have component cables plugged in make sure you do not have an svideo or hdmi or other video source plugged into the same input. Good Luck!

    Hi, Lets try something else. If you have the player remote connected , disconnect it and only have the direct video source connected. We will keep trying but as you know long distance troubleshooting is tough. Good luck!

hello,
First think you should do is clean your BD pickup with a pick up cleaner. If it still not working, call samsung technician to check it.

both should be hooked directly to tv

VCR side of combo should be hooked up with composite video(yellow, red, white wires) to video 1 input

DVD side of combo should be hooked up component video (red, blue, green wires and red white for sound)

cable box should be hooked up HDMI or component to TV if HD or composite video if SD

hope this helps

good luck

Have the Samsung BDP1590. The screen only says CLOSE and will not do anything else. Tried the reset instructions but nothing happens. The DVD player is less then a year old. Can someone help me out.


I had this problem when trying to play Avatar and my player locked up. I'll assume you have a disk inside when this happens.

Try pressing the power button to turn it off, then turn it back on again but as it starts press the Open/Close button - you may have to do it twice because at the first press my BDP1500 says "CLOSE" then a second quick press will show "OPEN". Take the disk out, then try another disk. If it's a problem with trying to play a recent disk you should be ok until you try to play it again. Read up on updating your firmware, etc. Good luck.

Samsung dvd player S224 pictures on screen are in red tones only


how is video on the dvd player hooked up? via s-video, component cables ( r,g,b), or the yellow cable? if it is the yellow cable then i beleive to be something wrong with the unit but just make sure you are plugging into the yellow input on tv. if it is the other types make sure you dont have the rgb cables mixed up. it is very easy to mix up the 3 wires. if it is the s-video cable try a different one if you can and make sure all pins are intact when you remove them. i hope this helps and good luck

Split screen


It appears that it has something to do with Progressive Scan been turned on. Progressive Scan is a feature built in your dvd player, wich by using it, it would give you a better picture//resolution on your tv, you need to use Component or HDMI cables to hook up the dvd to your tv if you want this settings, but if you are using composite RCA cables (Red,White & Yellow) and the Progressive funtion is turned on by accident, it may give you a split screen, black & white, or no picture problems. Also if you are using Component (Blue, Green & Red) cables, if one of them is unplug, the picture can be out of colors, or no picture. Check this things, if not, write back with more details about your set up.
