Re: Audio okay but no video

It's probably still under warranty. I suggest you return it to the store.

Just purchased this Magnavox DVD/VCR combo (ZV427MG9 A), bought in USA. Plays okay (video and audio) with HDMI output but, plays only video (no audio) with either set of component audio output RCA jacks. ...

I hope you are connecting 5 RCA jacks when using the component video out. HDMI cable carries both audio and video over one single cable but the component video has 5 jacks, 3 for video ( Red/Blue/Green ) and 2 for audio ( Red/White ).

No sound

Hello brdixon, hi., no sound could mean a lot of things, lets go over this one at a time. 1. are your cables okay, suggest you use other cables. 2. If they are fine, are all the panels display normal?, if yes then you have problems internally. The problem may lie on the main circuit board that process the audio. there are no quick fix on this, the warranty is one year. I humbly suggest you bring this unit to service. It be better off touched by a pro or the maker.

My Enzer dvd player E5518 is okay. Power is okay, sound is okay and it is reading dvd everything is okay but do not have any ouptu to video showing picture on the TV screen. What is the problem

Check you cables!

Try a diffrent cable

if all else fails try a diffrent tv if that does not work then you got a bad connector on the mainboard of the output or you got a bad video decoder inside the unit rendaring it useless. I cann see it so I do not know the full details but 9 times out of 10 its the cable or you have it hooked up wroung or your tv is on the wroung input and your sound is on another "happends" so check those vairables and let me know.

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV

If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

No video/audio on tv when powered up and running

drew a diagram of the back of each component & wires/cables and emailed it to my grandson,
The video wires in the VCR were placed out instead of in. That solved the problem Thanks.

Getting a GoVideo DVD4000 to show color on my new SONY LCD

sometimes you can get the cable mixed up on the video. Make sure you have the right color cable in the right slot. The white and red cables are for sound only and they have to connect in the same gouping as the video cables.

These players don't play through channels like the old school VCRs or some early DVD players.
This is either connected through your HDMI or component video cable input on your HDTV.
You need to toggle through your inputs on your TV to the proper one where your BD Player is connected through.
If you have it connected to an analog TV, then you need to toggle through your TV inputs as well. Usually called Video 1, Video 2, Etc.

No video

If you select Progressive Scan and your television doesn?t support it, you may end up with a blank screen and be unable to view the menu in order to fix it. If that happens, fix it by turning the DVD player off then back on. Open the disc tray, then press and hold the STOP button for five seconds.

Half the screen is dark

Sounds like half your backlight is not functioning. The only thing I suggest is to call the manufacturer thats listed in your user manual and see what they think it will cost to repair unless its still in warrantee. There are no user serviceable parts inside of this unit so i dont think it would be a good Idea for you to attemt to take it apart as it may be a system to dissasembly and you make tear or break on of the small flex cables. Good luck
