Question about Philips MDV460

6 Answers

No sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr

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?

Just had the same problem and it is fixed for me. With NO DISC in the player go to the System Menu. Next Navigate to Preferences on the top of the screen.

You will set an option titled "Default". Select that and it seems to reset the player to default settings and fixes the sound.|

I had this problem, and what worked for me was just unplugging the dvd player for a few seconds and then plugging it back in.

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 :)

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.

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

Only sound and No picture in Toshiba DVD/VCR combo


Hello,

maybe your connections are wrong.

The yellow pin is for video, while the white and red pin are for audio left and right.

So, your wires will be connected to video and audio "OUT" from your player and connected to "IN" respectively on your TV.

That's how it gos. Its a input and output law. The Player will be sending out the pictures and sounds (OUT) and the TV will be receiving from the other end (IN).

Its as simple is that. But if there is still no picture, then cross check your video wire (yellow), maybe its bad.

Good luck.

I change Component Cable Video & Audio 6 cables


I might sound stupid but Double check that you`ve connected the correct connectors as in All Inputs plugs being used or All outputs plugs being used. If you have one of these leads with 6 connectors on one lead, (Audio Input L+R, Video Input, Audio Output L+R, Video Output) You need to make sure that if you get sound from the audio input plugs, then you must use the video input plug and vice verse.

Cant hook dvd/vcr to my cable box the manual says I need a extern


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.

Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.

assume the cable tv box represents the converter box

you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.

Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.

If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.

You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?

So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.

the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.

That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

I have a 30 year old tv w/cable. I want to install a dvd/vcr combo player. What kind do I need? I've tried one and it didn't have the right connection.


If the original TV doesn't have audio/video inputs, you'll need a DVD/VCR player that has a built-in RF modulator. A RF modulator takes the audio & video and modulates a RF carrier to one of the channels that your TV can receive. In the U.S., this is usually channel 3 or 4. If the DVD/VCR player has a built-in tuner, connect your cable to the RF input of the DVD/VCR player and the RF Output of the DVD/VCR player to the cable input of the TV. This way, you can receive your cable channels through the DVD/VCR player and watch movies as well. If your DVD/VCR player does not have a built-in tuner, you can put a RF switch inline that will allow your TV to either receive the cable signal or signal from the DVD/VCR player.

Good luck!
