    That did not work. The dvd is set up as 1024 X 728. And the problem just occured in the past few weeks. The system has been installed for a while.

    I used new RCA cables when I put in the new DVD player

  • d3van3y14 Jun 27, 2009

    I will try your suggestion of plugging into a TV. But the Seleco is a projector, not a standard TV. If I isolated the problem to the projector, what can I do to resolve the problem? I can always send it back to the factory for repair, but that costs a ton. I would like to avoid that solution, if it is a simple problem to fix. hence i need someone whoi is an expert in high end projectors. Thanks.

    I think that the problem is inside the projector.

Check the video system of the projector and the dvd player..they must have the same video system..say NTSC-NTSC,PAL-PAL and etc..or you can set the projector's video system to AUTO...

Hello there, sorry to hear about your troubles.

Let'e examine your situation, according to the notes you have already cleaned the laser on the dvd drive, tried new cables, tried another dvd disc to verify it's not restricted to just that one movie, and replaced the dvd player itself?

If all four of these points are true then it is something on the input side of the TV not the actual DVD player. To confirm this you would want to take your existing dvd player (whichever one you have right now) and, using the same cables, attach it to another TV (a friends / family members maybe?) to see if the horizontal lines re-appear on that TV. If the lines do not re-appear then you know for certain that it is your TV that is the culprit and not the dvd player. It is possible that only one set of inputs on your TV has gone bad which would explain why the VCR works fine but not the dvd player.

If you hook your dvd player to another TV and the lines DO re-appear then you know it is something on the DVD side. It is possible that the outputs on the player have gone bad or the cable is bad but it sounds like you have already addressed those possiblities. To make absolutely certain you could try another DVD disc in the player (which I'm sure you've probably already done). If you have replaced the DVD player itself and it still has the lines and you've determined that your TV's inputs are fine then I would avoid that DVD player brand / model alltogether. If this were true it would mean that somehow you have received defective dvd players back to back which is virtually impossible.

I hope this answers your question, between all these trouble shooting techniques you should definitely be able to identify the culprit.

    I am sorry about that, I am definitely an expert with projects as well, I just focused on the part where you said it puts horizontal lines on your TV... I take it you meant across your screen =). Technically there is a huge difference.

    Anyway, once you have determined that it is the input on the projector you can "solve" the problem by avoiding that input. You can get an RCA switchbox that will allow you to plug multiple things into it (such as your VCR and DVD) and then from that into one of the inputs that is working fine on the projector (I would bet that your VCR is coming in through RCA as well?, if so you can use that input for both with a switchbox. Also, you can temporarily disconnect the VCR from there and connec the DVD player in it's place. If there are now no more horizontal lines then you should be ok using that input for both). If you want to avoid using the switchbox (or want to save money) you can just manually switch the cables whenever you want to watch a TAPE or DVD...

    Again I apologize for referencing "TV" so many times in my previous answer.

    Also, this would be considered a warranty repair item if the projector is still under warranty. Have you confirmed with the manufacturer one way or the other in that regard? They will also probably be able to give you a repair estimate although I know you mentioned it will probably be a lot, you may be surprised.

    Thanks for your patience and understanding, hope this helps!

Try changing the RCA cable or try changing the AV RCA input cable in your TV.it is creating a problem or could be a possibility that it is loose.

The technician is right, the TV will not show such lines selectively. Try changing the input device to some other. Play some sure shot, genuine DVD.

Black Horizontal Lines on Philips Cineos 50" Plasma


First you want to determine if the issue affects the tv's menu if it does you are looking at a Light Engine issue which is expensive if it does not interfere with the On Screen Display the issue is with your signal board, also check to see if this happens on multiple inputs with multiple signal sources if it doesn't you just might want to use a different input which is a way cheaper solution

White horizontal, zig-zagging lines


It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.

Faint horizontal lines in picture


This is usually caused by a problem in the Horizontal Output section, around the Horizontal Output transformer usually a capacitor or diode going or gone faulty... the line you see are the Horizontal "Retrace" lines that are useually "Hidden" when the circuit is OK..
