Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Philips dvd player is hooked up to my tv and it works because my grandson has had it working. I just don't know how to get it running and I have no written directions. He showed me what to do, it was simple, but I waited too long and now I can't remember how to do it.

Could you tell me the model of the dvd player, you already told me the brand, philips, halfway there.

So you just want to play a dvd with it disc with it?

Basically, set the tv to the right channel, depending on where the dvd is plugged in EXT 1 or EXT 2 channel.

Place in the dvd and press play.

That works if the tv and dvd player is wired up a certain way, I don't know how its wired right now but I suspect the above should work.

Can you also tell me the brand and model of the television on top of the model of the dvd player.
Also can you look how its hooked up now? just look what kind of cables are going between the tv and the dvd, how many and what kind?

I think that will be enought to solve this one.

    okay, if you go to channel 1, if you have a channel up down button, press down to go to ext 0 if it doesn't work there then press down ones more to get to channel ext 1

    I'll check your tv user manual and get back to you, while you wait try that.

    On remote controller, press TV/VIDEO, a display will come up, since its connected to the back of the tv where it says Input one. Select video 1(number 5 on list)

    if the dvd player is turned on you should get picture, if not then the dvd is not playing, press play on the dvd to start the disc.

We don't know how to hook our Phillips DVD to our new Westinghouse HD TV. We have Dishnetwork. We had it hooked up to our old TV and it worked fine.

The easiest way to connect this is to find the cable going from the receiver to the TV and disconnect it from the TV.
Connect this cable to the back of the DVD player where it says "in" or "input".
Next take another cable and connect it from the DVD player output to the TV.

We have a philips up-grader dvd player and get color distortion

I would try hooking something else up to your tv that is hdmi compatible. If your tv looks fine, then you know it would be the dvd player. If it's the dvd player, then I would suggest getting a different brand completely. I have had alot of bad experiences myself and other people as well when it comes to the philips brand
