No video signal

All my sound is working correctly but i cant get a menu or any video on my TV. I have umplugged and replugged many times and it is not the problem. M brother told me he was playing around with the resolution on the menu and he pressed 1080p and it went to no signal. If the resolution is the problem, please provide the steps on restoring the video since i cant see the menu. Thanks.

Re: No video signal

• The resolutions available for HDMI output depend on the connected TV or projector. For
details, see the user’s manual of your TV or projector.
• When the resolution is changed during playback, it may take a few seconds for a normal
image to appear.
• If you set the HDMI output resolution 720p or 1080i, HDMI output provides better picture
• If 720P or 1080i is selected, C-VIDEO, S-VIDEO and component video will not ouput video
signal. Press and hold the SUBWOOFER button on the front panel to reset the HDMI
Resolution setting.

I have sound from satelite box through bose 321 but no picture on tv

First, you need to run the coax cable from your satellite dish to the "cable in" input on the back of your satellite receiver, not the Bose. If your satellite receiver has an HDMI OUT, and if the Bose has an HDMI IN,run hdmi OUT from the rec. to the Bose IN, then keep your HDMI connection from the Bose OUT to the TV IN as is. Make sure you've selected the correct input on the TV menu. As it is right now, you're not delivering any video signal at all to the TV!! -only audio(red and white). There are a couple other ways, but they won't give you the same quality. I assume this is HD, right? If you CAN do it this way (i.e. if you have enough HDMI ins and outs), it's the best possible hookup and you won't need the composite (red, white and yellow) at all. By the way, it's the yellow connector that carries the video signal; the red and white are audio left and right. If you can't hook it up all HDMI, disconnect the "separate cable" (I'm not sure what that is or what kind of cable or what it's for)and plug in the yellow connector into video IN on the Bose.

The sound from my tv will not play through my surround sound.

Make sure that you have your receivers input selector to the correct input that you plugged your tv into. Try plugging the tv output into the working input that you have for the dvd. If the tv still does not work, and you are using a working input, then clearly, there is no workable signal going into the receiver. In tv menu check the audio output format.
Some tv sets output their audio signal in digital format. If you plug that into a receiver with an analog audio input it will result in silence.

I cant get surround sound from tv output using sc-bt230

Then get it from the source of the TV programming - maybe the cable box. IT has all kinds of good audio outputs. NO signal ever benefits from passing to or through excessive cabling or devices that don't NEED the signal. THAT would include sending audio to a TV or Video to anything BUT the TV.

I have a JVC G40 DVD home theater system and when I play DVD's the voice and picture don't match up. Specifically, Peoples lips move and then a second later what they say is do I fix this?

When viewing on Digital TV:-
Sometimes Audio and Video signal can not be transmitted simultaneously due to additional process time for the video signal compared to that of the audio signal.
Often video signal takes more time than the audio signal to convert from analogue signal to digital signal in the Digital TV.
It may result in mismatch of the picture and sound.
In the TH-G30/40's HD AV Sync menu, you can adjust the audio signal delay for simultaneous AV signal transmission
1. Delay time can be varied in 10msec steps.(0 to 300ms)
2. Delay time is different between TV Brands.
So you need to adjust the delay time for correct lip-sync.
The adjustment is listed in the instruction book page12

V ipod mode in Samsung HT-Z420 home theater system not working

Plug a yellow video cable into the TV (IN) and the Sound system (Out) then go onto AV1 on the TV or which ever port you plugged the cable into and play a movie and u can see it. A menu doesnt come up like the A ipod funtion so it comes up no signal until u play an actual movie on the ipod. If u dont have a yellow video cable i think u can use the white or red audio ones.

Most tv's will output audio signal automatically but some tv's like sony you need to go into menu of tv and under sound settings switch audio ouput to audio system if the sound doesn't come out automatically. Make sure you but durabrand hometheate system on correct input which should be labeled on back of durabrand system where the red and white audio in plugs are. Good Luck!

Cant get my viera linked panasonic to play through surround sound

I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.

For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,

I just bought a JVC THD50 surround sound system. I want to hook up the system to my television and cable so when I watch cable I can hear the surround sound. I bought a digital optical audio cable and...

See below for the correct setup to get the best clarity sound possible.

From Set top box:
  1. Audio: optical or digital coax cable output --> jvc system Input
  2. Video: hdmi output--> jvc system input
From JVC System:
  1. Video: HDMI output---> TV HDMI input
  1. only accepting HDMI input from JVC System.
This will provide you will sound from your jvc system at all times. Your JVC system is made to be used as a hub. So essentially what you are trying to do is connect all components into the JVC system. Then only connect the video portion to your TV. The TV itself should NOT be emitting sound.

Note: You may need to turn off the speakers in the TV setup menu to acheive no sound from the TV. This will make for the ultimate experience.

Can hear sound, can't see picture

Try the easy reset - power the tv off and unplug it from the wall outlet for 20-30 seconds. Then replug it and turn it back on.
