The tv works great. It is a tv/dvd/vcr combo set. However, the dvd player has recently quit playing any sound. The picture is clear from the dvd disc but there is no sound.

    I can't disconnect the dvd player. It is built into the tv. There are no headphone jacks either. Any suggestions?

  • jflcox Sep 27, 2009

    Actually, the tv did have headphone jacks but there was no sound when a dvd was playing.

    The tv works great. It is a Magnavox tv with a dvd player and vcr built into the set. However, recently the dvd player has quit playing any sound. The picture is clear from the dvd disc but there is no sound. The tv model number is: MWC24T5-A

    I did not see a dvd profile in the options menu. Is it possible to connect RCA cables to the audio output on the back of the tv to the inputs on the front of the tv and recover the lost sound from the dvd player?

  • jflcox Sep 27, 2009

    I don't see sound settings in the options menu; nor do I see a dvd profile and I have looked extensively. I guess you are saying that the tv is in need of professional repair and the rca cable idea that I had will not work? If it needs professional repair, purchasing a new dvd player would be cheaper and just hook it to the rca a/v inputs on the tv because the tv audio is perfect as long as the dvd source is not selected. Remember it is a tv / dvd player / vcr combo all built into the set. Fortunately there are a/v jacks in which I could hook up an external dvd player. Do you see any problems with this solution?

Hi

First check the sound settings in the options menu of the DVD profile to ensure that these are active and not causing the problem.

If these settings have not been changed then it seems likely that the problem is with the audio switching circuit within the unit itself. This is not a user serviceable issue and will require to undergo a troubleshoot of the main PCB by a tech.

Hope this answer has helped. Please do remember to use the rating. Many Thanks

    Hi



    If you have audio out on the back of the dvd and audio in on the TV you could certainly try this - however the fact that you have no audio from headphones with the DVD playing would indicate a circuit failure meaning it is likely there will be no Audio from the RCA out.



    There is a possibility this may work though so it is certainly worth a try!



    Do let me know how you get on.

    Hi



    Yes I do understand it is a combo unit you have. Seeing as you have the auxillary inputs for another player there is no reason why connecting another DVD player should not work. DVD players can be purchased cheaply nowadays and this may well be the best option.



    This way if your TV develops other problems at a later date you will still have your DVD player as a standalone unit which can be used again with another TV. It is for this very reason that I am not fond of Combo units i.e. when one component gives trouble it in turn effects the whole unit.



    When you purchase your components as standalone units - the problem is always confined to an individual unit if and when any problems occur. This is a distinct advantage over Combos.



    I can see no apparent reason why your plan should not work unless there is an unknown problem with the inputs on the TV. If you know someone with a standalone DVD player that you could borrow it and double check your TVs inputs before purchasing your own. It would only take a few minutes to do this and then you will be sure that all is well.



    Hope you get it sorted soon.

The sound circuit has konked out or the lens is unable to split audio & video signal, since DVD format is diff. from that has to read only one signal i.e. audio.If there exists a socket for plugging in headphones, do so & check if sound is coming through. If yes, then a connection must be loose & has lost the connection to its next part in the sound amplification circuit. Also disconnect the player & plug in the TV signal cable directly to the TV set to check if the TV is sounding normally. Then you can be sure that the sound amplification & not the pre-amp, is to be repaired/replaced..................sodeep

We are unable to get video (picture) on our TV, when we hook up to our new DVD/VCR combo. The combo doesn't have an S-video port and our TV does. We get perfect sound though.


Your TV should also have a regular composite video input jack (yellow) in addition to the s-video input. Use that input instead of the s-video. The video won't be quite as clear as with s-video, but you have to work with what the combo gives you.

Vcr only plays in black and white


Hi Ryana,

Check if the recorder is set to output in 'S-Video' or 'SuperVideo' mode, if your TV doesn't understand S-Video you'll get a grainy B&W picture. The VCR should be set to output in PAL for the UK and most of Europe.

Hope this helps

DVD PLAYS GREAT, TV AND VCR PLAY IN BLK-WHT W/NO SOUND


You have your DVD connected to your VCR, which is then connected to your TV, right? The problem is Macrovision. It's designed to prevent you from connecting your DVD player to your VCR, so that you can't make duplicates of copyrighted movies. It's a real pain in the neck. Try turning the DVD player off - or better yet, unplugging its power cord (as some DVD players are always in a standby mode, even when turned off). If that fixes the problem, then you need to reconnect your DVD player directly to the TV, not wired through the VCR. If your DVD player isn't wired through the VCR, are you using some kind of wire splitter (one cable branches into two) to connect both the DVD player and VCR? That can also cause this kind of interference, if both have power at the same time. There are video switches you can get to work around that. Here's one such switch (first I found for a decent price with a google search): http://www.pickeasy.com/20070827-video-selector-switch-video-game-p-555.html Hope that helps.
