I have an older kenwood unity all in one dvd player. for some reason I am not longer getting a component signal out of the player. composite works fine.
I made sure the cables are ok and that the tv itself will see a component signal.
No idea what the cause would be. Just turned it on and tried to watch a dvd as normal. tried unplugging it, reconnecting the wires, not sure if theres anything else I can try.. thanks.

The phono sockets for this are at different line levels for that reason. Phone is for the turntable depending on the type. If it is a later model stereo and an older model cheaper turntable, it uses an older type of needle cartridge called ceramic. The signal output of it is higher than the later magnetic cartridges and may need a preamp (radio shack) to match the line level signal, allowing it to clear the distortion. If this scenario were reversed, using an older cheaper stereo with a later, better quality turntable, the opposite would happen. (signal to low) This preamp would amplify the input. I think you need what is called a matcher to lower the input signal instead of the preamp. I've seen these at radioshack. BTW, the CD input doesn't distort as much because a cd player puts out a high signal and the amp is matched to accept it.
that reciever is not going to carry a hi definition video signal, it doesnt have either hdmi or component video inputs.
you can still use it, but if you run the picture through the reciever, it will have poor quality.
heres how you are supposed to hook it up:
find the single,m yellow video jack on your sattelite box, and hook that up to the "tv" video input, then hook the laft and right audio outputs from the cable box into the "tv" audio left and right inputs on the receiver. hook up the dvd player and vcr in the same manner, using "dvd" and "VCR" (if labeled as such) inputs on the reciever.
finally, send the tv video and audio outputs to the composite video in and left/right audio inputs on the tv. the video will be running through the reciever, and when you use the reciever to switch the sound source, the video will also be changed. you could get better picture quality if you ran the video directly to the tv using component (seperate green, red and blue) outputs/inputs, and bypassing the reciever on the video end, but then you would have to change inputs on the tv AND reciever to change from your cable box to your dvd player.
Check your antenna for a kink. Honestly I have seen the gps antennas on all indashs go bad very easily. Just check that make sure your good. If not you can try resetting the unit with the little reset button on the face.
Purchased a newer HDMI DVD player,(Sony)as well as found that I do need the video cables.Also found that I need to change the input to component on the DVD player by using a regular coxial to at least get a display from the DVD player had I kept the older one.
