Re: No picture when playing a dvd

Let me know what equipment you are using:

What TV?
What DVD player?
How are they connected? (what sort of cable)

Without this infortmation, the only thing I can suggest is to toggle through all your AV channels in the hope your picture will appear. If that doesn't work, come back with some more specifics & I'll try to help.

Dvd play + tv sound

This is usually caused by Cheap connecting leads. The sound 'bleeds' from one to another. First make sure your leads are as seperated from one another as possible. Then, before you start up the DVD, turn the tv to a blank channel. Hope this helps.

When playing dvd, we get sound but no video

try buying a new scart lead with 21 pin connector as the one you may be using has less connections and therefore wont detect the signal for video/dvd? either that or your leads may have a break in the cable inside? ensure all connections are pushed in correctly as if they are loose they wont play? good luck.

No picture

Change the input on the TV to the input that you have the S or Composite (yellow) plugged into from the RCA
Channel 3 should be the cable or antenna input F connector.

Sound and picture

Check that you have connected the component video lead to the correct sockets in both the TV and the HTS9800W.

There are two sets of Phono (cinch) connectors, which are grouped together.

Red / Green / Blue - Component connectors - video only

Red / White / Yellow - Stereo audio and composite video connectors - audio and vide

If you have inadvertently connected the red audio connector to the red component input on the TV, it would cause similar symptoms as you describe.

Tv sound on home theater kit

Hi Every one.

Had same problem with my HDMI connection on my sony bravia and sony theatre system, resolved by conecting a scart lead from the theatre system to one of the free scart sockets on the back of the TV, leave your HDMI connection in place as the DVD signal comes from this,

hope this helps!

Surround sound help

A few questions... What components are involved? How are they connected? Can you hear sound from the speakers for any other input device i.e. radio, cd, vhs, etc.? I suspect that there is an issue with the way the system is connected. I have the Surround sound output from my DVD player connected to the digital surround sound input on my reciever. I'm using digital coax cable (looks like a "normal" RCA cable), not the optical fiber connection. I had to buy a special cable for the digital surround sound. A normal RCA cable would not work. I don't know why. If you're using a similar connection, that could be your issue. make sure that the output and inputs you're using are compatible. A digital surround sound connection (in or out) can't be connected to an analog connector (in or out). Remember, Digital to Digital with a Digital capable cable; Analog to Analog with an Analog capable cable. If this is not your issue, post back here with more info and we'll see what we can figure out.
