Question about Panasonic PV-HS2000 Showstopper 30-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

No color or sound on DVD Player when hooked up with the ShowStopper

I recently had new flooring installed and all my connections were removed. Now I cannot hook up the connections correctly to watch DVD'S - there is no color or sound on the DVD player.

I have a Westinghouse LCD TV with the Panasonic Showstopper PV-HS2000 and a Coby DVD-224 player. I've tried S Video and the Component video cables the with standard video cables.

The CATV cable from the wall is plugged into the Showstopper. Then the Showstopper has the Red/White/Yellow cables to the TV - Video, R & L then another set of video R & L to the DVD player. The Component cables from the TV to the DVD player. When that didn't work at all I put in the S Video from TV to DVD and the DVD plays but with no color or sound.

PLease help - I'm a novice and don't understand a lot of this.

Hi ccraigo
To answer your question;
Your motorola will connect directly(not through the dvd) to the tv set into one of the input ,(preferably using hdmi or component cables for hd) and the dvd will use a different input,
All you have to do then is switch between which one you want to watch.
Hope this help Cheers

I have a dvd player that I am trying to hook up to a sharp tv model number 25L-M100B. This tv don't have the necessary ports inthe back to plug dvd or anything up to it. It does have 2 in the front of

Hook the dvd player up to the front inputs usually a yellow and a red or possibly a yellow red and white depending if the TV is stereo or not.

Then on your remote, it the INPUT button and take it to "VIDEO 1" while your dvd player is on and you should get a picture.

Make sure not to mix the cable colors.
Yellow is video
White Audio
Red Audio
A lot of times there is only either white or red and not both. This is just Mono sound, it works, just not "stereo" sound.

I just had directv hooked up, I have a dvr receiver, I was told I did not have enough hook ups on the back of my tv, so therefore, I went and bought a switch or combiner. Now, how do I need to run the...

Newer directv hd receivers must connect to the av input (yellow,red, white) connections on the back/front/side of your tv. If your tv only has one of these av inputs then you will need an RF modulator for your dvd player. You will connect the (yellow,red, white) connections from the dvd player to the rf modulator and then connect the tv out on the rf modulator to the tv rf jack ( the silver threaded barrel on the back of the tv) Tune your tv to channel 3 to watch a dvd and then back to the av input channel for the directv receiver.

Normally, there are 2 ways to hook these devices up. One is the component cable that has 3 colors, red white and yellow. these color codes match an aux. input on the TV (or vid1 or vid2) You need to change the TV input to whichever you used by the remote or maybe under Ch2 (4,3,2,vid2, vid1, aux,111,110,etc) The other way is to use the round 4-5 pin S-video instead of the yellow jack, that is self explanetory. The 3rd way and this depends on your TV and receiver is to use the HDMI, composite or DVI cable connection. These are only for Hi def players and will be either a large multi-pinned computer type plug, 5 colored/lead "octopus" cable, or a smaller D shaped high density cable with the row of contacts inside the plug. In any case you need to tell the TV which input you are using.
Once you get the TV to show a picture of the receiver, then you autoprogram the receiver with the remote under setup or other menu.

I can't hook it back up

Is your DVD player a DVD/VCR combo? If so, hook the "tv out" (sometimes called "ant out" ) to the "ant in" on the DVD/VCR, then hook the "ant out" of the DVD/VCR to the "ant in" on the tv. Then make sure the DVD/VCR and TV are on the appropriate channel (3 or 4).
If it's NOT a combo, or these instructions don't work for you, i will need pictures of the inputs/outputs of the devices.
