Losing picture while watching dvd

During play of a movie, i lose the picture, but the audio is still there. i have tried different hdmi cables and it is consistant. however, losing the picture doesn't always happen - very random. i have tried to isolate the problem and it is definitely in my dvd player. i have sent my dvd player back in and it was gone-through and guaranteed, but is still doing the same thing that it has always done. not every movie and completely random. could it be in the dvd itself? possibly the connection to the cable?

Your in luck , I just had the same exact issue and it was driving me crazy! and here is the solution ,check the hdmi cable sometimes the bend in the cable is enough to make theese highly sensitive cables cut their signal where the picture goes out but the sound is still on , i have a entertainment cabinet that houses the stereo/lazer disc player/blue ray player / and power amplifiers , well this cable along with other hdmi cables was a cheaper guage wire ,so i replaced it with a guage wire hdmi and never had the problem again , if you take your hdmi cable and just sort of press up against it and move the wire with your hand ,you will probably see your picture cut out , the conector pins that the hdmi cable plug into are like little needles and they are extreemly sensitive to movement and especially the cheaper cables , if you have a better hdmi cable just switch them and you will see what i mean , Another way to test it is to just use component cables and see if your picture cuts out , if it dose,nt then you will know for shure its the hdmi cable , Hope i was able to help you fix your problem , if i was of help please leave a nice rating for me , sincerely glenn mayer and good luck!

DVDs still show brilliant image. Absolutely no sound from speaker


check to see that the audio connection is correct,yellow video, red and white is audio, if you have hdmi capabilities make shure the cable is not used or dammaged ,that was one thing that happened to me and would only show a picture , i went and got a new one and that solved the problem ,but don,t go run out and buy one before you find that is the problem , just check with a cable that you know is working and if you are using hdmi , check to see if your rca cables when connected do the same thing , this is a way to isolate the issue , all in one dvd surround sound systems are handy but not practical , when you get into seperates it,s easier to solve the problem ,also check your warranty for possible warranty repair .hope this helps ,sincerely glenn

DVD Does not work when using HDMI from Philips TV to Bravia


You could see if they will exchange just the unit and save both of you the hastle of checking and repackingit all. It does sound like the unit is faulty.
Or if your Bravia has more than one HDMI input then try on another, or a friends tv if you know some one with a HDMI tv in working order.

No sound when playing dvd


HDMI may not output sound. Go into the setup screen of the DVD player and go into audio setup. Make sure you have it set for PCM or equivalent DIGITAL setting. If you set that and you still get no surround sound, you will have to use and optical cable between the receiver and the DVD.

Video disappears within 30 seconds


Hi Mark

I am going to take a stab in the dark here...

Did you plug the hdmi from the receiver to hdmi via the monitor hdmi output? this is needed so when you change the device on the receiver ie. between setop box and dvd the monitor changes with it accordingly.

You may also need to go to the setop box to set it to use hdmi output at the right frequencies too..ie. 720p 1080i or 1080p.Also set it so it only sends the picture via hdmi but audio still with optical out.

good luck

When watching tv


Is the sound different when you play movies or is it the same regardless? It may be a problem with your audio cables from your system to your TV. If you are not using HDMI, Optic, or Coax cables you will not be able to get the surround sound to function properly. It also may be a settings issue or poor connections on the wiring. Need more info.

Tv sound on home theater kit


Hi Every one.

Had same problem with my HDMI connection on my sony bravia and sony theatre system, resolved by conecting a scart lead from the theatre system to one of the free scart sockets on the back of the TV, leave your HDMI connection in place as the DVD signal comes from this,

hope this helps!
