Question about Sony DAV-FC8 System

1 Answer

Sound - yes, video - no

My Sony DAV-FC8 occasionally will not show any video from DVD's, but still plays the audio just fine. Searching the internet has lead me to think is could be due to some overheating issue, but it does this even when just starting up. It is not on top of any other equipment, and is arranged so there is plenty of air circulation available.

You might be possible that you didn't change the tv setting to the proper channel or source.

Our Sony c 770 no longer plays DVDs or Cds but it still works as a receiver. Can we connect a DVD player to it and have it come thru the 5.1 speaker system?

Yes, tis unit has 2 video inputs at rear so you can connect any other dvd player sound (analog or digital) to get 5.1 channel surround sound from DAV-C770 speakers.
Click Sony Support to download user manual copy of DAV-C770 that has more details about connection setup.
Hope this info will help you.

Hi,I can play a DVD disc on the system and get sound from the surround sound speakers but I can't get a picture on the tv,Sony Trinitron.The connetions are from the DAV S500:(DVD only)red and white cable...

First try with yellow video output of DAV-S500 in yellow video TV input to get its picture. (yellow output means composite video out)
Green-Blue-Red video output is component output that will be turn on when you switch the unit into Progressive picture mode, that option would be available in Menu of DAV-S500
Hope this info will help you.

Dvd plays only black and white

check the video input cables for any damage or broken part. check either ur tv or the player for any setting against NTSC, PAL or SECAM. Or try the tv with other player or try the player with other tv.

Pretty colors

Sounds like the other DVD player went bonkers. Try unplugging power on the DVD player you were playing the game on for 5 minutes, then plug it back in.

Whining noise

The problem i had was when i would play my tv. I had it hooked from my dish to the sony then the tv. When i played a dvd,cd or the tuner it didn't make that noise. It seems my video/audio 2 channel was going bad. I disconnected my rca jacks and used the optical audio connection. The noise stopped and i got a better quality sound.

hope this helps
