There is sometimes a way to turn of the TV speakers, but it usually cannot be set that way by accident. Plan on audio board damage. Perhaps you fed the TV too loud an audio signal, then overloaded the amp board. I would consider them gone.

SOURCE: DVD plays only in black and white

Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your time.
I turned on the router supplied by Verizon, which I did not do yesterday, I'm embarrassed to say....
I called Sanyo and received step by step how to set up.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

SOURCE: Can't play dvd player on JVC tv; I don't have a JVC remote.

I hooked up a Pioneer DVD player to my TV and when I play a DVD the volume cannot be controlled by the TV. It just plays at one level and on the louder side. When I'm watching regular TV and the DVD player is on and playing a disc I start to hear the DVD soundtrack at the same time as the whatever I'm watching on TV. I should not be able to hear anything until I switch over to Video 1. Any suggestions?

Hi Rob,
Power on the unit in the dark room then shine with the flashlight directly in the screen, you will barely see the images. This is because your backlight is not functioning. The following reason is the caused.
1. Power supply - missing B+(supply voltage) coming from this board feeding the inverter board. This is caused by faulty transistor, dried/leaky electrolytic capacitor, open fusible resistor.
2. Inverter board - even the B+ is good from the power supply, if the fuse, driver transistor, driver transformer is faulty no output to the backlight resulting to black picture.
3. Busted backlight - even inverter board is good but if this is busted resulting to black picture also.
Diagnosing the fault is technical and if you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't fix it yourself, I would advice you to look for an experienced technician to isolate the problem.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I change the settings on a Bravo 50" flat panel television which is set for Cable to receive an external signal from a separate DVD player: the cable connections (audio and video pin plugs) and


You just need to change the input of the tv to the input the DVR is on. If you are plugged into input 1 on the back of the TV then you need to switch your tv input to input one from your remote. The remote key you are looking for will be either "input" or "source".

Tip

How to Wire a Flat Panel Television with no wires showing



  1. Place all the components, TV, speakers, etc. where you want them. Don't worry yet about how to wire them.
  2. You may want to turn all equipment sideways on the shelves so you can get to the connections in the back.
  3. Plug in all the power cords into a power strip, but don't turn on the strip until you are all done.
  4. Learn to differentiate audio and video. Video connections are often yellow, audio connections are often Red and White, but newer systems can have more varieties. You'll need to make sure the color you are plugging in is the same for both ends of the cable.
  5. Start wiring all the cables. You can see that all the cables and connections are clearly labeled and color-coded.
  6. Use the concept of 'signal path' to connect the necessary OUT's to IN's. Cables are needed to give the signal a path to travel from one piece of equipment to another. OUT of the antenna, IN to the VCR. OUTof the DVD player, IN to the TV. OUT of the receiver, IN to the speakers etc.
  7. Follow this guideline when hooking up equipment:
    1. The wall (cable/antennae/satelite)
    2. Things that send out signals (TiVo/cable box/set-top box)
    3. Things that record (VCR/DVD Recorder/Computer)
    4. Things that play only (VCR/DVD/Receiver)
    5. Things that display (TV/Monitor)
  8. Turn everything on. If necessary, switch channels and settings to match the labels on the connections you've just made. Enjoy!

Hi I have a l32wd12 r a TV and it will not turn on


If the clock is on then the unit is receiving power; maybe the external input feature (which tells the TV which outside source to display on the screen, e.g. cable TV, DVD player, VCR player, etc.) is not set to display the TV channels. On my Sony TV there is a button that displays TV setting options (e.g., Favorites, TV List, External inputs and settings). The external inputs function displays the options as video 1, video 2, etc., right up to video 6. My video 3 is for the VCR, video 4 is for the DVD, and video 5 is for the cable TV channels. If the TV is set for say video 3 and nothing is playing on the VCR, the screen will be dark (almost as though the TV is off). Your solution might be as simple as choosing the right external (video) input for the TV to receive the channel signals.

Picture is fine but there is no volume however, volume comes on when I play a DVD


If sound when a DVD the set is ok.

Look:

Is sound turned down on set or muted and same for a cable or sat box if used for signal.

In menu are speakers turned off or on?

If set has hookup for external speakers is it switched to internal or external.

A setting in the set or the box used is causing this as the set is not smart enough to know when you are playing a DVD or just watching TV.

triple check all connections from box and in the set.

I have a 46 panasonic veska tv and I can not connect my vizio sound bar to it. I hear static but no sound


  1. Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find out.
  2. Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
  3. Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the way it was.
  4. Press the Input button on your remote control to return to the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2. Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
  5. Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't receive a programming signal on the TV.
  6. Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
  7. Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player, you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on your TV.
  8. Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or right to turn the speakers on or off.
  9. Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television.

I can't seem to hook up my Insignia T.V. and my dvd player up


The way to hook up the dvd player to the television to to put a cable into the output signal section of the dvd player( Ther may be many different ways to hook-up the signal s-video and component video, regular video. You must pick one of these output signal sources to put into the input section of your television by matching them up i.e s-video out to s-video input compnent video output to component video input, regular video out to regular video input. For each of these video hook-ups there will also be a set of two sound cables. Look on the back of your television for the signal input section and hook up the video cables and the sound cables to your selected input. You should do this with both units turned off in order not to damage the circuits by shorting them on cable insertions ofr causing heavy feedback in the circuits. One this connection is complete. Trun on the television first and select the TV's signal source . By pressing the input button and using the up and down arrows to find the correct selection. By matching up all three sources you now should have the correct signal path. Turn your DVD and test the controls. try using the volume control and use you dvd to to play,ff, or stop the dvd.If all this works then you have done the set up correctly and can now enjoy your dvd's on the television Hope this helps you with your problem..

NEWER TV SETS REQUIRE THE RIGHT CABLES, USE S-VIDEO OR AN HDMI CABLE WILL SOLVE ANY PROBLEM
