Question about Philips DVP5140 DVD Player

1 Answer

Bad DVD picture

I had a Memorex DVD player that displayed a fine picture on my TV, but unfortunately, it went dead. I bought a new Magnavox DVD player at WalMart and the picture looks washed/whited out in parts, almost as if a bright white light is shining on it washing out some colors. I returned the player and replaced with Sony with the same results. I returned that and tried a Philips player with the same result. I am hooking the player to the TV via an RF modulator since the TV is 19 years old. I am connecting using the cord with White to Left, Red to right, and Yellow plug to Video In/Out. My TV colors look fine with the VCR and with broadcast TV signal. What can be the problem?

How to set up my memorex DVD remote to control my magnavox TV?


Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but according to the manual in the link you posted, and from Google image searching to look closely at the remote, it doesn't appear to be a universal. The only way you can control your TV with it would be via the DVD player hooked into the TV, and then you will still only be able to control the standard functions of the DVD player (i.e. pause/play, stop, FF/Rew, menus, subtitles, etc.) but not the functions of the TV (i.e. volume, channel, power, etc.). Assuming you get yourself a new, actual universal remote to replace this with, I recommend this site in the future: http://www.remotecodelist.com/

My memorex combo dvd & vhs player is not working right. can you help me? the vhs player works fine, but the dvd player display's a split screen on the tv with a large yellow box with the word PSCAN....


PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

Memorex mvd2047 dvd player - no audio when playing dvd


Regarding the problem with the sound on your DVD player, I would suggest you to make sure the audio cables (red and white) are connected properly to the TV and player.

Also, try using a different set of cables since those ones might not be working and this is why you are not getting audio. On the Memorex remote you will find a mute button, make sure it is not activated.

I have a Magnavox MWR 20v6, I keep on getting error messages.


I figured how to get the Memorex DVD-R's working again. I went and bought a DVD lens cleaner and all the errors stopped at least for a while I hope.

Just hook your antenna or whatever wire you have currently connected to the TV to the input on the new recorder, and you'll be to record anything you can watch now.
