Flickering blackness while viewing films

sounds to me to be the scart lead or the scart is not fully connecting.what i mean is watch for the scart connector on your tv or dvd moving in when you plug the scart lead in.

Go into the player's setup menu and make sure it's set for the kind of connection you're actually using (component, S-video, composite). Also make sure the connections are pushed "all-the-way-in" Lose connections can cause B&W picture.

I need to know how to hook my DVD player to ,y Samsung TV. I have it hooked up and have a picture but its in black and white.

look on the back of the television and the DVD player, there should be a SCART socket and/or red, white and yellow AV sockets, either use a SCART lead and connect it to the SCART on the DVD player and the TV.Or use an AV lead with 3 auxiliary shape connectors and match the colour of each connector with the female sockets on both the TV and the DVD player instead of using the other component connections.

No sound from front center and rear speakers on my xv-dv55

1st check your cables are inserted into the subwofer (which is the powersource)
however it sounds as though you have switched the player to mono mode to reset it try this
2. On your remote press the system button with the green ring around it 3. Then press the dts button (number 7) keep pressing it until the auto option appears (watch the little black display screen)
hope fully that should fix it
I am assuming that you no longer have the manual other wise you would have checked in there? But if you do and this does not work try read the first few pages on setting up the sound for your system.

Hi!My name is Dan,I am from Romania.I have a dvd player Pioneer XV DV55 and I dont have power supply.Can I make my self one?

Yes no worries, you simply need to get the Voltage, Current & Polarity right, this should be marked somewhere usually though, it is Plus +, to Center Pin, with Negative -, on the outer. Mostly 9 - 12 VDC. The Current MUST be over an Amp. A switched Mode PSU would be best, transformer supplies my not provide "Clean" enough DC. Check it out carefully you should have no worries.

No audio

It's your 'scart lead'. It's either come lose at your TV or player, if not buy a new one, they are cheap enough.

How to multi region my Pioneer XV-DV55

Most have "hack codes" but yours is in a select group of a few that simply cant be done with a couple pushes of a button.

As far as I am aware the only way to get thesemachines to play Region 1 discs is to have them chipped. A variety of solutionsare available, and it needn't be expensive (typically £30 to £70) but youshould be aware that any internal modifications to your players wouldinvalidate the warranty. Have a look at the following web sites for moreinformation:

I know you were looking for a free solution you could do in a matter of seconds and sorry it didnt work out that way. Regardless, I hope I pointed you in the right direction and feel free to ask if you have any more question.

Happy Holidays,

Pioneer xv htd520 won't play dvds

This is a common problem for this model. It has a memory IC that must be replaced. This is a surface mounted IC that requires exceptional soldering skills to replace. I work at an authorized Pioneer service center and have repaired a good number of these for this exact problem. Unless you have great soldering skills it is not something that should be attempted to do yourself, it can cause permanent damage to the board if not done perfectly.

If you have the proper skills and soldering equipment I will be happy to give you the Pioneer part number so you can replace it yourself. If not, then you really should just take it to a service center and have a professional do this.

Let me know if you would like that part number.
