No Picture on TV

I have an older model RCA television (RCA Guide Gemstar) that was purchased in 2001.  I recently purchased a BOSE 321 Series II system.  I have connected the system, and the sound is great, but I cannot get a picture on my TV from the DVD player, or from my VCR.  I get a message that says check TV, but no matter how many times I switch cables, etc., I cannot get a picture to show up on the TV screen.  I have sound, but no picture.  Can you help?

    My RCA F25422 has jived well with the Bose 321 since I hooked them up 2 years ago. Then all of a sudden, I went to play a DVD and got sound, but no picture. No cables were disconnected, nothing was messed with. The TV works fine watching cable, and even playing the video camera thru the RF Modulator, but only sound when trying to play DVD. What happened?

? What is the model # off the back ?

Does the video work on the RF coax cable input?

For instance,as a test,can you hook-up from VCR coax RF out

to TV coax in,put the TV on Chan. 3,play a tape and get audio and video?

 

Are you matching colors when trying the A/V inputs?Yellow,red,

and white out of DVD to yellow,red and white in on back of TV?

Then select video input on tv===dial "00" or use input button on

original RCA remote. Are you using original RCA remote that

came w/TV ? Do you have the owner/operator manual for the TV?

   Sorry to ask so many  ?????   Let me know how it goes!!  T.

What is Bose 321 gsx video format?


The video formats are:

composite video (yellow phono/RCA) - 480i/576i [NTSC and PAL, respectively]

S-video video (black 4 pin din) - 480i/576i [NTSC and PAL, respectively]

Component (3x phono/RCA - Green Blue Red) - 480p NTSC only. Applies just to the DVD player output.

The 3-2-1 system has a couple of composite inputs, one s-video input, no (0) Component inputs. It has 1x composite output, 1x S-video output, 1x Component output.

The Bose system has very basic video handling capabilities. It will only pass through a signal in the same format as it is received. So, a composite signal in requires that the TV or display is hooked up with composite too. IOW, it won't up convert composite or S-video to component.

Have a Bose 3-2-1 Series III. When I put in a DVD, I get sound through the Bose but no picture on my Pioneer TV. This is the second time it has happened. The first time it, we managed to get it going...


Here are 3 things to try and an if all else fails at the end.

1) Make sure the TV is set to the correct Video Input to see the video from DVDs on the Bose system.
• Make sure a DVD is in the disc tray.
• If the TV is connected to the media center using the HDMI cable:
Switch from one Video Input to another and then back to the original input.

2) Turn everything off, then:
Turn on the TV and set the TV Video Input for the Bose system video.
Turn on the Bose system and press DVD.

3) Turn off both the TV and the Bose system and then:
Unplug the HDMI cable from both ends.
Disconnect the power cables from both your TV and the Bose 321 system.
Re-connect power to the TV and to the Bose 321 system.
When the Bose 321 system startup message disappears from the display,
re-connect the HDMI cable to the TV then Bose 321 system.
Turn on the TV first, then turn on the Bose 321 system.

If all the above fail then disconnect the HDMI cable that connects the TV to the Bose 321 system and reconnect the two using a Component cable, an S-Video cable, or the Composite cable provided with the system.


Please leave feedback

If it's an original 321 system (series 1) then it has an audio output on the back. (via RCA jacks) You would still need an amp or receiver to connect the speakers to.. (unless they're powered speakers)
If it's a 321 series II or 321 series III- it does not have an audio output.
If the system has a DVD tray right in the middle of the media center, then it's a series 1.
Otherwise, you'd have to get a 1/8 splitter to come from your Mac's headphone output. (still- you will need an amp/receiver or powered speakers to have both 'rooms' playing the same thing from your computer)

Hooking up bose 321 to my tv


I am about to go through the same process. I have a Bose 321, and am on the verge of getting a HDTV. From what I can figure, the Bose can play a dvd and input it to the HDTV via video and audio output plugs off the back of the Bose to the audio/video input jacks on the back of the new HDTV. I think individual cables will have to be run for each. They usually are red or white, sometimes green or blue. I am sure everyone has seen these in their life. The Bose 321 technology only had what was called an S-Video cable output for the best picture, which is how my current tv gets it's Bose signal, but now HDMI seems to have superceded S-Video. Therein lies an obstacle to be overcome.
