Question about Sony KV-27S42 27" TV

1 Answer

Video works when playing DVD, but not with Dish signal.

We have the exact same problem, exact same model.  Suddenly, audio with no video (when using Dish feed), but a DVD plays perfectly (audio AND video), so it can't be the tube!  Problem occurred when TV was turned back on after having been turned off.  Also hooked a different TV up to the Dish feed and it worked fine (audio AND video), so it's not a Dish thing.  What does that leave???
The set is a Sony Trinitron Color TV, Manufactured January 2001.

I have audio and the set displays the channel number/ sound and menus. However it will not show the image that is playing on the tv

Your TV has video problems. Input any video signal, from dish or from DVD player or any other source, after setting the TV to video mode. If there is video, fault may be in the RF video output section, which could be detected through through checking. If DVD video also in not there, the problem is of video swiching [usually electronic changeover inside the TV]. Which can be rectified through a technician.

Cant get both a VCR & DVD player to work on a SANYO TV, model # DS27590 cause there is no input button. The VCR works using a video button. Is it even possible???

Well if you could gain access to the inside if the set you could locate the Video's Composite Input, and there you could simply "Tap In" there, and run a Coax. OUT for the Video?DVD IN, and similarly, find the Audio's Input, and do the same for that. Then you could, simply NOT provide a signal, IE: Turn on & use, the VCR/DVD. And NOT supply a signal from the VCR/DVD. Instead supply the signal via YOUR leads, and it will NOT know the difference, and display what is being fed into it.

Old TV. Model M79R. How do I connect a DVD player (only a player). The TV is connected to satellite signal (Dish) wired to the 2 UHF screws. I am not sure what or where to connect from the DVD player.

Your DVD outputs composite Video & and an Audio signal, subsequently you must have AV inputs on your set they are Red & White (Audio) & Yellow (Video) RCA Jacks. If you do not have these then you are a bit stumped. You may however get a RF Modulator, this takes the Composite Video & Audio signal, and converts it into a TV Signal that can be "Received" on a TV Channels.
I have included a link so you understand what I am talking about.

DVD input with signal access

IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!

Unusable signal

A brand and model would be helpful. However if you have some knowledge on TV's you could try replacing the Jungle IC first. This usually controls the AV inputs on a standard CRT. Probable cause, Static on the Video line. Good Luck. Jus004

Multiple video inputs

Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
