Re: no video output from rca jack or svideo

Just got video! I had to get to the menu option and them press the progressive scan button in order to turn it off. Just pressing the button while the dvd was in did not turn the progressive scan off.

Re: no video output from rca jack or svideo

The problem is with the p.scan button. It seems if its pressed the video goes off. You need to keep it pushed until you see a message for "progressive scan".

Trying to hook up my daughters dvd and tv. I've got one set of cables with yellow red and white connections,where do they go?

Red is for Left Audio Output, to TV Left Audio Input
White is for Right Audio Output, to TV Right Audio Input
Yellow is for Video Output to TV Video Input

You should see the same color coded RCA jacks on the rear of your TV unit. Just match the inputs to the correct device ie: Video 1, Video 2, etc

I have a dvd/vcr rrecorder with no coaxial connection. How can I tape or record a TV program?

Hi,first of all I assume that your Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player has the recording features as well..othervise you cant do anything"NEGATIVE" ..If yes than follow the procedure below..
If you want to record your TV program while watching to your DVD/VCR system you need to connect "Video - Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV or CABLE box to "Audio-Video input or "Optic Cable input" of the DVD
There you go..Your TV's video and sound is on the
DVD/VCR Dual Player Receiver..of course your DVD source input should correspond with the jacks you used on the back...push "RECORD" button it should start for recording the coming signal into DVD
when you recording the output RCA jacks of DVD will generate the signal of whatever records that can be monitored with another TV set after properly connected..
Take care and please

Can you put a phillips dvdr610 onto a television with built in freeview and then record from it. If so how?

If your TV has an OUTPUT MONITOR Output Jacks, Yellow, (Video) Red (Audio) & White (Audio) FEMALE RCA Jacks.Then these will output WHATEVER is showing on the TV screen. And can be used as an Output for any Recording Viewing device. There will be other, FEMALE RCA Jacks,AV, Yellow, (Video) Red (Audio) & White (Audio) and possibly also The Composite Video, Red, Green, Blue, all Video, These are INPUTS, they will be there also. Make sure.

How do i hook up my rca dvd to my samsung tv its hooked up right but i can'y figure out how to get the tv on the right channel for it to work

This DVD player only has audio and video outputs. You'll need to connect it through one of your TV's A/V inputs, then switch to that input to see the DVD signal.

If your TV doesn't have A/V inputs available, you'll need to connect the DVD player using an RF converter. This takes the audio and video signals from the DVD and produces a channel 3 or 4 output you tune in on your TV. Converters cost around $10 to $20 and are available at Radio Shack or retailers who sell TV's.

No color and no audio

yes , this is why , on your dvd there is a "yellow for video" output on it ,and then there is a "red output jack for right audio"
and then there is a "white output jack for left audio" does your tv have these inputs?

the blue , green and red "RCA JACKS" are called " composite video" which seperates the colors of given video

the red and white RCA jacks are for right and left audio and are required when using composite or the yellow video jack

there is also a "s-video" connection that is one cable but seperates the colors for better picture quality ( dvd player only)( vcr and tuner do not work with this)

then there is a optical or coax digital connection for a reciever that decodes the connections audio digital signals for dolby digital surround sound

Panasonic DVD-RV32 DVD Player-No image on RCA output

Hi Obviously the unit is playing the disk because your audio is fine, and getting some kind of black & white picture out of the composite, means that the video processor is probably ok. The most likely things to check then is the yellow video cable, (just swap the red or white in place of the yellow on both the DVD and your tv to test), or possibly the yellow RCA jack on the back of your DVD has gotten loose. If you have not done so, try wiggling it gently to see if your video comes back. If it does, and you are handy with a soldering iron, you can probably repair it yourself. Other than that, it would be a problem for a repair shop. (and a strange one!) Hope this helps, and good luck!

No image

Yes they are surface mounted componets and without a schematic and an ocilliscope I think it will be near impossible to find the trouble if the problem is an IC. If you have access to a scope try tracing the video signal from the RCA output jacks and see where you see it come up. Good Luck
