Question about Panasonic Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

We have a Panasonic DVD/CD Player Model F87, which we want to connect to a receiver and the tv. We have followed directions in the manual and are not hearing any sound from the CD player. The CD's play, but no sound and all appropriate buttons on the receiver and CD player are pushed. The radio works as does the TV. It seems like some of the cords are not connected in the correct places. Can you advise on where the cords should go from the CD/DVD player to the receiver and then into the back or front of the TV? Thank you Jennifer

What I know that you want to get TV and DVD player sound from receiver's speakers. Is it?
Receiver is hub and dvd player video out will go to DVD Video In jack and audio left-right pins will be inserted in same Input in receiver.
Play dvd player and select DVD on receiver to get sound of dvd player. Now hook Video wire from Monitor out to AV input in TV to get picture of dvd player in TV.
Let me know if you face any trouble.

How to hook up to panasonic tv & sony dvd player

DVD output (HDMI) to HDMI input on TV will transfer both audio and video from DVD to TV. Audio output on TV to unused Input on Yamaha receiver (Aux, CD, etc.). This hookup will allow DVD and TV channels audio playback through your Yamaha receiver. Remember to test any/all new hookups or connections using minimum settings (volume, etc.), and bring up levels slowly for the initial testing.

I'm connecting the following components. TV Panasonic tc-p42c2, Receiver Pioneer vsx 515 game console Sony Playstation DVD player Sony dvp-nc80v Whats the best way connect these?

Usually by looking at their manuals and working out the best compatible options between any two devices. I'm not being sarcastic. READ the manuals.

My personal advice (contrary to any manual) is to take the BEST video from each source directly to the TV if it has multiple inputs; route basic analog audio from the Cable Box to the TV for those times you don't need hi-fi audio; take the BEST digital audio from each source and connect it directly to the Pioneer.

NO signal ever benefits from a detour to or through a device that doesn't excel at processing it; or through excessive lengths or hops of expensive cable on the way TO the best device that handles any particular signal.

Avoid unnecessary or multiple digital-analog or a/d conversions.

My personal rig has no video entering the receiver and no high-end audio entering the TV and NO PROBLEMS.

I can't find my remote and I want my cd's to play over and over. I don't care about the order. I just don't want to have to get up and push play after each cd is finished playing. What can...

Not much you can do without a remote for this model except play 1 disc (CD or DVD) manually at a time. You could try to obtain a replacement of the original remote directly from Panasonic, or you can look again for your lost one in your home, or you can try a (cheaper) universal remote with this unit. The cost depends on what type of remote you get and where you buy it from (if you order through Panasonic there may be an additional shipping charge). Sequential play (one disc after the other automatically) usually can only be set using the remote.

The fact is, this player needs a remote for full functionality If you want random/sequential play for multi discs, the original Panasonic remote is required - try ordering this first if it is available. If not, then consider a universal. (you could also look on eBay for a similar DVD player remote for this model)

I am connecting the DVD player directly to the TV, I have video but no audio. How do I get audio

In the dvd players setup, there might be an audio choice (I don't know all of them). Try different settings there. Also, you might not have the audio jacks in the right plugs on the TV or dvd player. Or, the tv is set to a different audio source.

I have had my Panasonic DVD-F87 Multi-disc DVD Player for over three years and within the last 4 months, it stopped playing DVD's. It plays CDS and CDRs' but it will not play a DVD at all (used to play...

Hello jwbabyj hi, 3 years of good listening to music on your player is rather good for its life, no device doesn't last forever, this failure is due to use, dust, temperature, shock, fluctuating power source and other external devices, which will make you player eventually give up. My solutions suggest the following:
  1. Clean your player lens, there are after market lens cleaners, buy one. and use it to clean the player lens.
  2. You may need to remove the top cover to have access to the lens for manual cleaning if the lens cleaner will not work out. Get one clean ear bud, and dampen one side with warm water, rub this in circular motion to the lens, 3 to 5 revolutions will do, use the other dry side to dry off the lens. replace the cover and test. do this several times until the player works.
  3. If still, this does not work, remove the cover and see if the lens glows visible light, to do this eject the tray, do not place any CD, then close, look at the lens and see if it emits visible light. No light bad lens. needs lens replacement. bring it for service.
  4. Check for worn out belts, does your player spindle spins? no spinning spindle bad player. needs spindle replacement.
  5. If 3 and 4 are likely, better buy a new one.

Can't play audio CDs without having the TV on

Your description is not entirely clear, so I have to guess a little here, but I think what is happening is as follows:

1) You are using your DVD player as the source for the CD.
2) Your DVD is connected directly to the TV and the TV then connected to your receiver.

If the above are correct, then the problem is that the TV only has what is called an ACTIVE passthru for Audio signals. This means that the signal is process by the TV and tehn sent to the audio output jacks. With the TV off, the buffer ICs are not functioning, thus no output. Some older sets have what is called PASSIVE passthru.

I don't know your specific DVD model specs, so check to see if you have 2 audio outputs from the DVD (many do) and connect the other audio out directly to the receiver. That will resolve your problem.
