Our tv is connected to a vcr and a dvd player. The cables are correctly installed for audio and video, input and output. The sound is fine for the tv alone, or through the vcr. There is no sound for the dvd player (although the picture is crystal clear through VIDEO 2 on tv). The dvd remote does not have a separate volume control. We had this problem when we first installed the dvd player a couple of months ago. The customer support person at Philips/Magnavox told us immediately what button to reset, and all is well. Again it has no sound and Philips/Magnavox folks now do not have a clue. Any suggestions?
Re: no sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr
I had a problem and all above solutions did not work (although kpsmith gave me the idea) so I took dvd out, went to setup menu on dvd player and selected audio. There is an audio reset which allows you to turn HDMI AUDIO ON/OFF. Select for this to be turned on and hey presto!!! (hopefully). Thanks for getting me started kpsmith - hope my finding can help someone :)
Re: no sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr
The problem has been fixed for me. We had some guys come and look at it, and It turns out there was a problem with some part in our TV, but the part isn't made anymore so we ended up getting a TV exchange. It was not that old a set so there was still a warranty on it.

Hi, it seems to be ,you have a possible wrong connection..I may I recommend you to check the connections in accordance with my model connection procedures given below and correct if something is misconnected..
I believe Your Television ,vcr and dvd player all connected to each other thru Technics Receiver itself (not directly connected to each other ) and whenever you want to listen/watch any of it ,you make a selection thru Receiver.. ** in order to do this both DVD and VCR 's "2xRCA audio" and "1x RCA Video" cables for "IN" and "OUT" should go to Receiver separately ..("IN" goes to "OUT" of other ..pls remember,Always reverse connected ) ** Additionally your RECEIVER's prefably only "1xRCA Video Output " should go to TV to watch the video of both DVD and VCR (audio will come thru Receiver.)
Ok, now Since you successfully connected your Receiver to play video on TV (one way only ) ,here is the second reverse action to listen your TV on Receiver ** you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "SCART "connector " of your TV .( every TV has different type of Audio out jacks ) ** to "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input" of your Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the necessary cables on your hand ) ** than just switch to
respective mode on Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver .. There you go..Tv sound are on the Receiver .
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
have you connected up correctly, have you selected correct EXTERNAL inputs, you do NOT "tune" a Channel to see picture, you choose external AV input on set. Must connect color to color. 3 for Composite Video AV.Yellow, Video, Red & White Audio. and 5 cables for Component 3 for Video , & 2 for Audio Blue, Green, Red, Also Red & White, Audio.
The cable box IS an external tuner. You should connect the video output (either S video, HDMI, or component video) of the cable box to the video input of the DVD. Then connect the audio output of the cable box to the audio input of the DVD via stereo RCA cables. If your tv monitor has multiple inputs (ie: video 1, 2, and 3...) connect the video and audio output of the DVD to your tv monitor using an alternate video input (if cable box goes into your tv thru video 1, connect the DVD to video 2). If your cable box only has one output, or your tv has only one input, then just connect your cable box to the DVD as above, and connect the DVD to your tv.
Your TV output is a pass-thru from the coax cable then. The only solution- turn the volume down, or unplug them.. Or get a cable box. A VCR may work as a temporary cable box, and if you have a remote for it, you should be able to just turn off the audio at any time with a VCR remote. (unless the VCR also has a pass-thru only audio output)
Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.
first you do connect cable to your > combo VCR / DVD player & recorder then connect to > to your TV: cable coax output or if that cable have video/audio ouput is going to INPUT >to combo VCR / DVD player video / audio output is going to INPUT > to TV,.that's the time you can record and playback; click below for more information in hooking up:
connect one end of white cable to dvd/vcr audio output and the other end of white cable to tv audio input L .
connect one end of yellow cable to video output on dvd/vcr and the other end of yellow cable to video input jack on tv
If you connect like this after checking you connections this should fix problem.
