Question about Yamaha RX-V620 Receiver

1 Answer

Can't view picture, but can hear sound

I have S-video from TV to Receiver, and I've triple checked that the DVD is connected to the proper place, the switch on DVD player is set properly for my connection type and that the channel on TV is correct - I know because I hear sound from the DVD on TV speakers when it's on AV1. It's weird because I can hear the DVD no matter what channel the TV is on...?

 

I don't have my Yamaha remote anymore, so maybe there is a setting I have to change there?

 

Can I use my TV's (philips from same year as receiver) remote? Where do I find the code to program it to the Yamaha?

 

Thank you for any answers.

    Thanks for attempting to help, I actually had an "Oh, Duh!" moment. I never knew it before, but now I know you can't have S-video from TV to DVD, then use coaxial from DVD to receiver. changed the S-video to coaxial and the picture works!

Are you trying to record TV signal onto a DVD, or are you playing back? What make & model is your TV and DVD player/recorder?

My hdmi connection for dvd & cable have both stopped working. The receiver is flashing


Unless you've been pulling it in and out, it shouldn't go bad. I assume you've checked to be sure it's properly connected.
HDMI cables should cost less than $20. If you were talked into a $100 cable, you were taken advantage of.
HDMI has a function called HDCP. The TV source and TV have a conversation over it to make sure that only an approved device (your TV) is connected to the cable. This is for copyright protection reasons.
Have you recently connected a new source (cable box, DVD player, whatever)?
Your problem can be in the TV, the cable or the source.
Try substituting for each to determine what's failed.
If you have your TV now hooked-up with component, you may have discovered that there's little or no difference in the picture

There is no sound on my Sony SLV-D350P DVD Player / VCR Combo. The only section that works great is the VCR, but the DVD player sound just went out for some reason. I've changed the RCA cables, and...


Hi, As long as you have the picture it means that DVD's Laser Eye is Ok.. Pls Check your connections to make sure the audio and video cables of both VCR and DVD are properly hooked up to the television. Color coded cables should be matched with the jacks of equal color. Yellow corresponds to video while red and white are both audio.

Ensure the DVD is in standby mode if you are not getting picture from the VCR. The DVD cannot be running at the same time as the VCR is playing when you want to see the VCR picture.

Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for older TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use two inputs. though: any component- or S-video-equipped TV will offer sufficient inputs for both of the SLV-D350P's formats.
It's a different arrangement for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial,). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit DVD/VHS audio and video to your TV.
In conclusion,for a best tech solution I prpose you to connect DVD audio directly to your Stereo and listen as separate audio source.while Video goes to TV as usual. Hope this helps! if you need more help pls contact me..Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)

HI, you can do these troubleshooting steps and get back to me..

Instructions

Check the video connection of any devices plugged into the LCD television. If you can hear sound but are seeing no picture while trying to use something like a DVD player or cable box, the problem is probably that a wire is loose somewhere. Check the yellow video cables running from the DVD player to the TV and make sure everything is plugged in firmly and where it should be. Also check the coaxial cable running from the cable box (or cable outlet) to the television and make sure that wire is also screwed in securely.

Check the image settings on your television and make sure everything is set properly. Certain settings like "Picture" or "Brightness," if set to one extreme, can make the picture appear completely black. This could cause you to simply hear television shows but not be able to see them. Reset all picture settings on the TV to their original factory default settings to see if that fixes the problem.


Try another channel. If you're watching TV and not getting a picture, the first thing you should do is check a variety of random channels to make sure it is a problem with your TV and not with your television signal. If it is a problem with the television signal it is the fault of the TV station or cable service provider and there isn't anything you can do yourself to fix it.


Try the DVD on another DVD player. If you're trying to play a DVD and can't see any images, make sure the disc isn't defective. Try it on another DVD player or a computer DVD drive and make sure the disc works in the first place.

Hope it helped ..

When I switch on the unit, i can hear the sound but there is no picture


Hi! Welcome to Fixya!

If you are unable to view video on your television set, the issue may be that the TV's video input selection does not match.

The TV input source must match how the device for example DVD player is connected to the TV. At the back of Samsung's LN40A650A HDTV are three HDMI inputs, plugs for component input, an antenna input for the DTV receiver and a VGA input. Please check on what port the device is plug.

To correct the issue, use the TV's remote control and change the video input selection.
  • Press the Menu button on the remote control and navigate to TV Input
  • Only ones that are actually connected are highlighted and available.
  • If there are multiple device connected please make sure you select the device you want to connect.
You may also check if all cables are properly connected.

Thank you.

You must connect from the Bluray both HDMI and SPDIF to the receiver, and turn TV volume down. TV does not send the sound
from HDMI inputs out digitally, only sound from TV channels.

No sound unless VIDEO signal is plugged into receiver


Connect the DVD player audio with digital coax into the digital audio connection as you described and the DVD video directly to the TV. Now switch the input mode on the receiver to DVD. Then switch the video output mode on the TV to correspond to the input you plugged into. Any source in 5.1 dolby digital or dts should now work properly and have picture too.
