How do you hook up the DVD player when you have AT&T cable running to the TV? There doesn't seem to be a schematic on where what goes to what? If you have it on print, can you please send to me email?...

Without having the model# of the TV or what connections are available I cannot go into details, BUT
A DVD player will need both Video and Audio connections connected to your TV. Depending on what connections are available on the back of your TV you have a few options
  • Composite Video (Yellow RCA connector)
  • SVideo (round 4 pin connector)
  • Component Video (Red/Blue/Green 3 RCA Connectors)
  • HDMI (flat rectangular digital connector)

Take a look on the back of your TV and see what types of these are available (or provide me your Model#)
HDMI will give you these highest quality signal....Composite Video the lowest

With all of the connections mentioned (except HDMI, HDMI has audio signal built in) you will ALSO need to connect the audio connection from the DVD to the TV as well (red/white RCA connectors)

I hope this helps,

I have a Malata DVP 890. I pressed a button on the remote (it is in Chinese) and the crenn dissapeared. I can get sound from the DVD if I use the red/ whiit and yloow plug connections. Nothing with...

unplug the unit for about 20 minutes. This should allow the unit to go back to it's factory default settings.
Switch the TV to the HDMI input. Turn the TV off - hook the unit up with only the HDMI and turn on the TV.
If all goes well, the TV should signal the DVD player to turn on.
If not, wait about 10 minutes then manually turn on the DVD from the front panel (not the remote)
This will usually fix you right up.

I am connecting a RCA DVD player (DRC277B) to my TV and have problems when using the HDMI cable. When I connect the unit using the AV Cable, things work OK. I then turned off everything and hooked...


Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal!

If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not necessarily digital broadcasts

Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a difference. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

My new Blu-Ray player will not send out an HDMI signal, except when I turn it on. It shows the Blu-Ray sign, then stops sending out any signal. is this a common problem?

This is not a common problem.

It sounds like you are receiving signal from the DVD player, but are having a resolution issue. After the splash screen is when the resolutions setting can affect your output. What this sounds like is the DVD player is set to 1080P and the TV is only capable of 720P or 1080i. If there is a resolution mis-match, connect a composite cable to the TV and set the resolution of the DVD player to AUTO, then check to see if you have an image from the HDMI connection.

If your TV is capable of 1080P and if this solution does not fix the problem, and all other outputs from the player perform the same, the unit is faulty and should be returned if still under warranty.

Hope this helps!

RCA DVD player model DRC285

try sticking a knife on the top of the dvd slot. don't put a lot of pressure to break it though. turn the dvd player on, and it may open. If this solves the issue, try not to put items on top of the dvd player because it will cause it to stick and not open.
