    Thanks, that all makes sense. I am getting the sound from the disc playing, so my inputs must me in order, don't you think?

    Anyway I can access and clean the reading lens?


  • tangotom Nov 12, 2009


    I went for it, cleaning the lens that is; after spending time on switching cables and inputs 6 ways to Sunday!

    Once I cleaned the lens, with Qtip & rubbing alcohol, fired 'er up and PRESTO! perfect picture; but onl via the 'S' cable, not the yellow video cable. Good enough fer me!

    Thanks for your assist.

Make sure your TV is on the correct input mode. If the DVD player is on "input 1" "video1" etc, make sure the TV is on the same mode. Look for a source or mode or input button. If it is, disconnect the (TV Input) and try another input on the TV. Ports do go bad on occasion. I have one port that is bad on my TV (luckily I have 5 inputs). If that does not work (if not too much trouble) hook up DVD player to another TV using the same video cables (that way you can trouble shoot both the DVD player output port and the wire at the same time. If you have the same problem, use another connection method on the second TV to see it that corrects it. If it does it was the wire and if it doesn't there is a problem with the DVD player. If you cannot hook up to a second TV, just do the same to the first TV one step at a time. Good luck and I hope this helps!

    It really depends on how you have the DVD player connected to the TV. For example, my Playstation3 audio is hooked up to my AV Receiver as is my DVD player, but the video outputs from the devices are hooked up to my TV inputs directly. So if my receiver is turned on and on "aux" mode (which is my playstation3) my TV will produce the audio on my TV but my video will not display until I change the mode or input or source of the TV to match it. Likewise my DVD player does the same just on a different source. Then my DirecTv is on another and PS2 on another. But all audio can play through the receiver (audio only) until I change the source input of the TV to match it. I really do not believe that a cleaning is in order. Usually the disk cannot be read (audio and video). If your audio is playing through the TV ok, then I would look at the video connection from the DVD player (out) to the TV (in). Some DVD players just take a dump at times as well. I've had three go bad. If you want to attempt to clean it, go for it, it surely cannot hurt it. It is so much simpler in person. LOL Good luck! Let me know how you make out. If you have another DVD player, you may want to try that as well. Electronics are geared to go bad, just like cars. Money making industry creating a market for themselves. It's a disgrace!

    Very Good news!!! I cannot explain why you can only connect it via the S video connector after cleaning it. One should have nothing to do with the other. If it works with the S video, then it should work with RCA or component connectors as well. Either way, I'm glad the problem is resolved and congrats to you!!

Car ran fine earlier today. Parked it and now it won't start. Battery is fine, radio, lights, accessories all work. Starter motor does not click when key is turned. Dead silence under the hood when...

Sound like a starter go to bad or died. You can do a few tests to diagnose a starting system problem without any tools or measuring equipment. Turn on the headlights and start cranking. If lights go out, you probably have a poor battery cable connection that is impeeding the flow of current. Start checking battery posts and battery cables for tightness and corrosion. A very thin film of oxide between the terminal and cable clamp can choke off most of current. Clean battery posts and cable terminals. Make sure all connections are tight. Also check connections to the starter and solenoid and engine-to-chassis grounding cables.
If headlights continue to shine brightly and nothing happens, voltage is probably not reaching the starter. Usual suspects here include a problem with the park/neutral or ignition circuit switches.
If lights go dim and the cranking action is sluggish, first suspect a low battery.

Starting problems especially in cold weather on a system that worked well last summer can often be traced to a weak battery. Sub-zero temperatures can cut a battery's amperage output by more than half. Check out the battery condition. If the battery checks out okay, look for a locked or dragging starter, a starter with high internal resistance, worn brushes or open circuits in starter's windings or armature.

Other posibilitie, the ignition switch.

Ps3 connected to tv , been working fine for two weeks now no picture or sound on tv. Please can anyone advise?

This is a common issue with players who use the HDMI connection. Although, it is not peculiar to those players alone but if you are using the normal cables that comes with the console, then you might want to try this.
First, disconnect the cable from both ends(console and tv) and then try using a soft brush to clean all the ports and connectors of both the cable, console and tv.
Secondly, you ensure that the cables are well connected and properly and tightly fixed at both ends and then you can try using the console again.
Lastly, you can try obtaining a cable from a friend and see if it displays or projects sound when you try them again. You can also swap with a friend and see if yours works well with his console, By doing this, you would narrow it down to if the fault is coming from the cable, the tv or the console.
Hope this helped you?

No Picture or sound

The lamp cover door was not secured tightly. Door does not "push" shut easily. Got a little rough with it and latched it shut, then the tv worked fine.

Television has sound but no picture

Check the cables first that connect to your video device, are they in tightly?  Test the cables on another TV to make sure they haven't gone bad, which is common.  Also check the input selection on the TV to make sure it matches with the video input the cable is connected to.

It's likely the Ssb is out, Philips p/n# 319801634710 which on a difficult scale of 1-10 is about a 6 or 7 for repairs. That is a DPTV310 chassis and somewhat tight quarters inside. It's not so bad taking the strappings loose to get at the board but a tight area to work through getting the standup board unplugged from the signal board. One noteable caution: unplug the set for at least 10 minutes before opening the back VERY STATIC SENSITIVE..
