System is about two years old, recently when changing channels it became stuck on "TV PR 22". DVD player still works, volume button works. Just cannot change channels and even PR 22 only shows either a blank screen, a green screen, or a grey screen, depending on when you turn on the TV (Channel 22 was previously a working channel).
I don't believe any button aside from the channel + button was pressed.
Had same problem, fixed it by turning off at wall, wait 30sec, unplug antenna, turn back on, will say poor signal, click to another station at this point, should change OK. Switch all off again, plug in antenna, start up as normal, should be fixed.
I have the exact same problem.Check this out.
Unfortunaley, for temporary use of other channels other than abc & abc2, you need to pull out the antenna lead when it is trying to program those stations back in. My serial number starts with 601, does yours?

your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.
if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.
the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.
this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.
the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.
I'm still confused. Walmart has this with pictures. This DVD player has regular RF Coaxial TV output and input. But, the best way to connect it would be Video Out and Audio Out for the connection from the DVD Player to the TV. I guess it has a tuner in it? or else why would it have a TV input on a DVD player?
Specifically the Pr, Pb, and Y connectors and the Red and White - Left and Right Audio Out connectors.
That would give you the best audio and video to most modern TV for last couple of years. (I don't see HDMI but that would be even better if it had that.)
So does your TV not have Component Video (Pr Pb Y) inputs? And Audio Left/Right inputs?
If not then you are connecting Coaxial Cable RF input to your tv? The TV would have to be in TV mode in this case and on the correct channel ... I would imagin Channel 3 or 4 of the old NTSC style TV channels. Most TV's still do those - even with the new Digital TV channels being active.
You may have tried this, but when you hook up audio out from TV to audio in on reciever, did you try the different input options for the reciever. Often times, audio in is an aux1 or aux2 setting on the receiver. If it is working with the DVD player, it is functional, you just have to get the wires hooked up and get the reciever on the correct setting. Also, even if you have TV audio out correctly configured to audio in AND on the correct input setting, the TV volume will have to be UP as well as the receiver volume. NOT ALL THE WAY UP (you'll blow your speakers), but up about 25% for you to hear it.
You need to determine what output options your DVD player has. Take a look at the rear of the player. It will certainly have RCA jacks for video and audio outputs (yellow for video, red and white for right and left channel audio). It may also have RCA jacks for component video (marked Y, Pb and Pr). Finally, it may have a threaded connector marked "out to TV" or "antenna out" or something similar. This is called RF output.
Most players today don't offer RF output because nearly every TV has direct AV inputs available. If your DVD player has RF output, connect the output connector to the TVs antenna input. You need a coaxial cable with F-connectors on the ends. One may have been supplied with the player. RF output is on channel 3 or 4, set by a switch on the back of the player or by its on-screen setup. Just set the TV to that channel to watch a DVD.
If your player doesn't have RF output, you connect it to the TV using the AV jacks. You need cables with RCA plugs to to connect the video and audio from the player to the TV. Then you switch the TV to its video input to watch the DVD.
This is where you might run into problems. Many TVs need the original remote control to switch inputs. (Some older RCA sets used channels 90, 91 and 92 to switch to their video inputs so any remote would work, but these sets were made before 125-channel tuning became standard. If your set is one of those models, those are the auxiliary channels you heard about.) If you can't switch the set to video input with front panel buttons and you don't have the right remote, you're not completely out of luck.
If you can't use your set's AV inputs or it just doesn't have any, you need an RF converter. These cost around $15. They take the audio and video from the DVD player and convert it to channel 3 or 4. Then you hook that output to your TV as described above.
If the volume buttons work when using the Radio, then the buttons on the Remote are fine.
Now if the volume on your TV is set to MAX and you can barely hear it.
The issue lies with your TV.. ()
Now if I understand correctly or if I am to assume you are using a Reviever.
If the reciever is used for all volumes... If this is the case.
I also assume the volume on the TV Speakers is set to off
Therefore when you use the Radio/DVD the volume control is using the Reciever volume.
and when you switch to TV it uses the TV volume thus the TV volume is not gonna work as well.
1 The TV volume even at max is not giving you enough power to get the low receiver volume
2 the Receiver volume is at max and barely audible.. if this is the case just manualy adjust your TV volume to get it to a decent sound level.
Hard to explain but I know the 2 issues can be fixed.
If it is a new DVD that may be a problem, as signal changes may be frustrating this old machine... but it is likely the cabling from the DVD player to the reciever. Are you on the right channels/settings? is the optical cable and digital cable recieving digital output from your DVD player? Try changing those settings and you should be in good shape
Thanks! good luck!
