SOURCE: how do I factory reset my Philips 23pf5320

did you have the power supply connected to any componet in your system while making connections , {not just on stand by} ? if so you have probably blown your tv's amplifer. never ever connect or disconnect audio or video connections without disconnecting ac power from the entire system !!! you may or may not get lucky doing this for a good while but sooner or later fate will track you down.

It's not compatible with the Phillips DVD player. We had the same problem with our old DVD player, something about reading it.

SOURCE: DVD plays only in black and white

Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

When u put a dvd in it shows coloured,but regular tv channels shows black and white


Most likely the cable between the cable/satellite box and the tv is not fully home. Push all the connections firmly home and try it again.

Hello

Make sure TV is on the correct channel or input. Check the cables for correct routing from TV to any other devices. Check cables to ensure they are tight and secure.

An analog signal converted to high defintion resolution will cause lines, blurriness or fuzziness in the picture. Change the resolution to a lower or native setting using the media device (cable box, DVD,). This may be an issue that requires a service call to cable provider.

A problem on one channel may just be a error on that channel. If using an antenna, it might need to be adjusted in order to ensure good signal strength. For digtal channels, go into TV Menu. Check the DTV signal. Weak signal can cause picture distortion.

If another device is being used such as a cable box, DVD player or VCR switch between devices and test picture. Check routing of cables that are used to control the image. This should be a series of red, white and yellow cables.

If a VCR with a cable box, make sure the VCR and TV are set to the correct channels for video signal to pass through. If problem is still occuring, try another set of cables. bad cables can cause picture distortion.

Bad cables can cause picture distortion as well. Try another set of cables. If picture is better than when using the cables replaced, this was the issue. If cables are not an issue TV may require service.

First you need a component cable to solve your problem.Since you have not mentioned what device you are connecting to your TV, I''ll assume its a DVD player or a settop box.There is a Red and White audio sockets + Red / Green / Blue component video socket. Just make sure you connect the corresponding two sets of jacks at both end of your TV & DVD player and everything will work. bobhifi_21.jpg

I have attached a DVD Player to my LG TV, using the appropriate cables. I have sound and a black & White picture. What have I done wrong please?


It is very simple, the mode of your DVD or TV is not correct. Check the NTSC/PAL setting's on your remote control for the DVD player. If your DVD player is on PAL system, then you TV should also be on PAL system. Likewise for the NTSC system, possible to put both on AUTO mode then do it. Don't get confused it is just a simple setting which you can do it without any problem, and in future you can do it for others.

The three picture cords (red/blue/green) often are a little larger around than the sound cords (red/white). If they are they same size, they are often grouped separate by picture and sound. Double check to verify if you have the "red" cords correct. Good luck.

Do I understant this correctly? You are using a composite video cable (A/V y,r,w) and connecting it with the component video input (and then telling the TV to use the YPbPr source). You need a component video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end - red, green and blue) and an audio cable (2 RCA plugs - red and white) for the Wii. It wasn't included with the Wii but it does have the component video ports. Otherwise you would need a SCART to composite connector to work with the input. Alternatively, you could get an HDMI cable and connect that between the Wii and the TV (depnding on the age of the Wii).

If I've read this correctly, you have the media box and dvd player sharing the SCART input (EXT1).

I hope this helps.

OK no problem here. I can help. First reconnect the DVD Player to the tv using the Compoment cables. Match Green to Green,Red to Red and Blue to Blue.. If this is done correctly then you will have normal looking picture. If the picture looks like it is missing the RED color then switch both Red cables. The pix should look normal. Then connect the RED and White audio cables to the audio inputs . Now the Pinkish color is a result of the DVD Player not being set to the "Progressive" setting in the DVD Player Menu. It will help to connect a set of COMPOSITE cables from the DVD Player to the TV's Composite Input. Those are the Yellow,Red and White inputs on both the tv and the DVD Player. This will allow you to see the DVD player menu in case you cannot see the menu while in the Component input. The Pinkish picture should go to a Normal picture.
