Question about RCA DRC233N DVD Player

No color when switching to component cable

Tonight we hooked up our new HDTV to our system. At the same time, we switched from a SVideo cable to a component cable to connect to the RCA  DRC233 dvd player...all of a sudden, we had no color at all!

We had to switch back to the Svideo cable for now, just to get color...but how do we connect the componet cable AND get color??

    I have the same problem with my sony DVP-NS325 dvd being hooked up to my jvc tv. It's not hdtv, but needed to use component cables or svideo. Do you know what I can do to get the color?

To Change DVD Player Video Output to Progressive Scan: With your DVD Player turned on, and your TV turned on, press and hold the PREV/VIDEO button for at least 3 seconds (this puts you into Video Output mode). Press the PREV/VIDEO button to access different video output options. Each time you press
PREV/VIDEO, the type of video being displayed appears next to the Display menu. Look for PSCAN on your DVD player display panel. At this time, your progressive scan on TV should be working.

you may have a bad yelllow rca cable for color make sure its plugged in right. or try plugging them into a different input. make sure all the right colors are matched up and pressed ALL THE WAY IN. if not you will need to upgrade your cables to svideo cable, hdmi, or component cable (the red blue and green cable)

I have a 32" flatscreen


Different video signals use different connections ...and we are speaking ONLY the video(NOT including the audio connections)
  • Composite Video (typically colored Yellow) uses 1 RCA connection on your TV
  • Svideo (uses 1 svideo connector on your TV) a circular connector with 4 pins in it
  • Component Video (typically colored Red/Green/Blue) uses 3 RCA connections on your TV
These are the common analog video signals....You cannot mix and match these and plug a composite (Sometimes called AV in menus) into component etc
If both your sources (wii/DVD) you want to use a component signal to your TV (which BTW is the best quality of the 3 I listed) you will need 2 component inputs on your TV
OR
run it through a high end receiver (that will act as your switcher)
OR
buy a small stand alone switcher, something like: http://www.amazon.com/4X1-HD-Component-Av-Selector/dp/B000BVIBGI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_4

settle for a lower quality DVD signal and use the Composite video out (yellow jack) into the Composite Video In on the TV and use the component for wii

I hope this helps,

How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


Things You'll Need:

* Component cables

Instructions


Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

Tips & Warnings

You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

When playing a dvd the color is in b&w only


I have had exactly this problem when changing TVs. Initially I had the sVideo out cable from the Bose with a scart plug on TV end - that worked fine on old TV. On new TV, first Samsung, second SOny, got Black and white video picture. To get it to work I used a component video cable - this is a short svideo cable with a an audio cable at the Bose end. It splits into a 3way R G B cable within 2- 3 inches at Bose end. I then plugged rgb extension cables into this and TV and worked perfectly.
I found the answer to this by errr...... reading the BOse doucumentation I reveived when I bought the Lifestyle system 5 years ago.
Good luck

the Svideo, not Saudio, will have to be selected in the tv's input menu, but Svideo won't give audio, you will have to connect audio leads to the TV and to the sat box or whatever you are using for your programmes

DVD cables


You have to plug your DVD cables into the "input" connectors on your tv. Input audio and input video. Also there is either a switch on the back of your tv or in your menu where you have to choose "component video". Or it might be labled Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc. You might have both a switch on your TV and a choice in your menu. If so, both have to be set to "component Video. Sometimes on the back of your set, the switch is not labeled. It just has "arrowed" lines coming from the different switch positions and leading to the "outputs and inputs" on the back of the set. Set the switch so that the lines lead to the red, blue and green INPUTS on the back of your set. Your problem is not serious. It is just a matter of "telling" your TV that you are using "component video". Component video is when you are using the red, blue, and green inputs. It is also possible that your DVD has another output besides "component out" and also has a switch. Make sure this switch on the back of your DVD is in the "component OUT" position. Your DVD might also have a connector on the back that looks like connectors on the back of VCR's and most TVs. This is an "F" connector and the cable has to be screwed on. It's just like a cable tv cable. Screw a cable into the "out to tv" on the back of your DVD and screw the other end of the cable into the "RF" INPUT (or cable input) connector on the back of your tv. Be sure to look ALL through your TV menu and DVD menu. The DVD sets to "component OUT" and the TV sets to "component IN". Hope this helps.

This is easy in a nutshell. from the cablebox into the VCR RF connection (ant in) then from the VCR RF into the TV RF in. The from the DVD composite video out and audio out into the VCR composite video in and audio in. This make the VCR the hub of your setup the VCR should be set to channel 3 and you can switch between the VCR and the DVD by using the VCR remote. Now for the cords: 1) Cable to VCR RF = Coaxial 2) Composite Video and audio out = RCA patch cable 3)Composite Video and audio in = RCA patch cable That is it. If your TV can support multiple inputs then use it as the hub. Cable Box to VCR RF (Coax cable) VCR to TV RF(coaxial cable) or VCR to TV Composite video, or TV Component Video (RCA Cable) DVD Player to Composite video, or TV Component Vido (RCA Cable), or Svideo (Svideo cable)
