Look if you have a DVD or VCR use its receiver! so plug your antenna into the eg:DVD/VCR then connect its audio outs(red)(white) to the tv's (AV)in area. then plug its image out (yellow) to the tv AV in. then switch the tv on, flip ova to AV then tune the VCR/DVD and volla, sound :) good luck. P.S. this is a blown or damaged transistor(FET)(MOSFET) but is easy to fix if you want to, however it will not undermine the rest of the TV as fas as performance or life expectancy goes.

Sony tv will play copies of movies from tv, but won't play store bought new ones. I mean current popular ones. It played Avatar last week but won't now. We tried several new movies and none will play. Put...


There is some confusion in the explanation here.

The TV does not play movies it displays them It is the DVD that Plays them. But of course you knew that. Some of the newer movies like avatarcan be on Blu ray if your DVD is supposed to play Blu ray but doesn't don't be surprised as they have changed the format recently. Your DVD will require an udate of firmnware. Go to the website of the DVD brand and contact support Download the update and burn it to a disc and run it.

With the TV end Make sure the resolution can be accepted from the DVD you are trying to Play. If it isn't HD or capable of 1024x768 at 16.4 then it may not be able to display the image. Is there any sound?

If sound but no Pic then start playing with the picture format. go to 8.2 or 4,0 to see if it makes any difference

No sound when disc is in DVD player. Only picture.


The sound board is out in the dvd player. Try another source, such as cable, and/or a gaming system if the tv gets sound it is for sure the sound board on the dvd player. Always check to make sure the dvd player doesn't have a mute option.

Check the region and picture settings on the home theatre's dvd player, it could be set to put out a component signal, or it could be set to a PAL region rather than NTSC

Cannot get the visual from the videos


Today with HD High Definition TV these kind of problems appears because the new dvd players have more video resolution options, so, for playing all variety of dvd, and home done dvs,s (like family movies on dvd) you need set up your resolution video on your DVD player at 480i or 480p option, not higher because some DVD movies (mainly oldies) have lower resolution than newer , for example new movies on HD format have 1080 P resolution, and if you have this option chosen in your DVD player you only can see this kind of videos, on the other hand if you have chosen 480i or 480 p on your dvd player , you can play all dvd formats including home movies made with any movie software, in this way you can play dvd-r and +r movies and of cours you can play HD movies also. So put some dvd where your dvd player works well (you need see the dvd menu in the tv screen), then press stop. Then press setup in your remote control, go to video resolution and choose 480 I or 480p, then press ok AND ENJOY THE MOVIE.

DVD'S will not play..


Sounds like the unit is bad, or set to the wrong Regional Code. Its not easy to set the regional code and it varies by model. You are better off buying a new DVD player given they can be found for under $30.

DVD's music and background but no talking


Try adjusting the sound on the tv. If you go into the "user" audio options you can select between normal and True Surround SXT. That may work. Otherwise, try playing with your dvd player's options. The problem I'm having is the tv plays the sound before the picture.
