Question about JVC TH-C50 System

1 Answer

No color picture

I have a new jvc th-c50. Took it out of the box, unhooked the three jacks from my old dvd player, hooked them into my new unit. Everything plays but my picture is in black and white. I have changed the config. of the cables but to no success. Getting ready to put it back into the box but thought I would search for help first.

Have you looked at the menu to see if it is an international system? If you have more picture posibilities than NTSC you may need to make that selection. Terry

Not getting any power to the DVD player at all. JVC DVD digital theater system th-c50.

Probably a blown fuse. If you have a warranty or can return it do that, if not unplug it, open it up and there should be a 250 volt glass type fuse. pull it out and make sure it is blown. If it is replace it at radio shack. If it isnt check for loose wires around the power cable and the transformer.

Why can't we get the sound to work by hooking the DVD player directly to the tv?

The JVC system is designed to output audio only via the speaker terminals at the rear of the system. There is NO provision to send audio directly to the TV from the system.

Page 14 of the manual (link provided below - free to download) details the connections available to a TV. These connections are limited to three types of connections: 1) "Video" for standard TVs which is "good" 2) "S-Video" for TVs that have an S-Video input jack which is "better" (both #1 and #2 are considered "composite" types).

The third type is called "Component" which is used for TV's that are capable of "progressive scan" video input which is "best" for the system. Notice that the jacks on the DVD player are labeled "Y", "Pb" and "Pr", not "Video", "Left" and "Right". This type video signal requires the use of three cables - they do not send audio as you may be used to see on all but the newer TVs. TVs capable of displaying "progressive scan" video have a better looking picture when using these jacks. Incorrectly connecting the video from the DVD to the TV audio inputs (Left & Right) will likely result in noise or hiss from the TV speaker.

To recap - audio can only be played through the JVC system's speakers. Use the highest quality video jacks that BOTH your TV and the DVD player supports.

I hope this was Very Helpful and enjoy your DVD and TV!

What wires are needed?

You will, at least, need what is called "component cables", usually remembered as "the wire with those three colors; red, white, and yellow". Connect those little plugs to their respective jacks on the back of your player and TV; color to same color, "out" on the player, and "in" on the TV.

What video out put you connected between JVC player and TV ?
Look at back of your JVC player for Video out (yellow color) pin, hook RCA cable there and plug it to Input-1 or 2 in TV.
Now select AV 1 or 2 (what ever you hooked) in TV by remote and hopefully picture will in TV.
need further help, let me know model number of your TV.
