Re: Can not get a picture

Hi all

I had a similar problem with Coby dvd 7500 the screen was faint almost black but could hear the movie sound. I cleaned the lens as suggested but it didnt resolve the problem.

I tired to rest the player by removing the power supply cord and the battery for 30 mins as suggested in the manual but that also didnt work. What I did was left the player without battery and the power cord overnight and it did start working in the morning!!

This worked for me and hope works for you guys too...though I cant explain the reason as am novice myself. But give it a try as it really worked for me.

All the best.

Insert a VHS tape, hear sound, no picture? DVD working fine, both sound & picture. What am I doing wrong?

Likely a damaged video tape got in the unit and blocked the video heads--once blocked no picture but sound will be the case---the heads can be manually cleaned if you know how---The real issue will be to locate which tape was in the unit when this happened--clear the heads and put it back and right back to no image......

Cleaning tapes are only slightly effective--most shops (if you can find one who even works on this gear) will not charge much to clean the heads.

My samsung dvd-sh855m has no picture, only sound. there is no picture at all so I cannot even set the machine up. When I put a dvd in I can hear it but the screen stays black

Press the 'pscan' button on the front of the recorder 3 times and the picture will come back. This is a little sod as you only need to catch the pscan button once - if your TV doesn't support a progressive scan your picture has gone....

Sounds like a cable problem. I get this a lot with my coaxial cable, it takes a little turning or playing with to start working. Use an optical cable if you have the option, they are more secure, or if you don't mind going analog use the red white rca cable. Either that or replace the coaxial, if you're using one. If your amp/TV, whatever you're connected to, has a vacant audio input jack to switch to, try that as well. Good luck

sounds like the back lightsd not working. if you know how to work on electronics maybe you can go in and see if the bulb is bad or the power supply that feeds it. Good luck
