Question about Philips Standard (CRT) Televisions

Open Question

Older Magnavox TV #RS3160-C103

This is second-hand without an owners manual. I just bought a new Home Theater System. It is hooked up properly to play DVD's...I can hear the movie play thru my surround-sound speakers, but cannot get a picture other than regular TV. Yes, all the obvious buttons have been tried. I have a universal remote (not the original) for this TV but it doesn't seem to be communicating my commands, such as getting a set-up/display screen so that I can program the HTS to play movies. Do I need a different remote?

Assuming you have picture on the TV when hooked up to cable, antenna or satellite I would take the DVD player to a friends house to see if it worked on their set (using your cables of course). If you can't get a picture on your TV no matter what, then it could be either the Jungle IC or EEPROM IC inside the set. Since it displays "No Video Signal" on the screen, that leaves out the High Voltage section of the TV. My main suspicion would be the video cable or settings on the DVD or TV.

SOURCE: Cannot get DVD to Play on TV

Try the old RCA/GE channels of 90/91 or 92 to get to the inputs. Or try entering channel 00. Let me know if that works.

SOURCE: Is there an input select?

I can view channels but cannot view a DVD from the TV/DVD Disney Princess Combo. Only see static on the screen with no sound. I wonder if I need to change the input select to view a movie but cannot find a button on the TV or remote control. I have a 6 button remote which I am sure operates the DVD and another remote with 39 buttons I thought would operate the player as well as the TV. However, so far only the player functions from it. The buttons only have small pictures without words which sometimes leaves some question about purpose. This is a second hand unit. I do not have a manual. It did play movies at first. I think the trouble may have started when I programed cable channels. Any help will be greatly appreciated

If you have an a/v cable for your playstation, run the yellow wire to the video input of the tv and the red and white rca to the input of your sound system....put your tv on a/v or input and put your surround sound system on the input of where you plugged it in luck....

I have a Sylvania sst4324s tv and would like external speakers. The owners manual says the red & white audio output jacks are 2W 8ohms ea. Do I need an amplifier with speakers to make these work or...

At 2 watts, it would run very small speakers without an amp, but I suspect you would be more happy with a home theater amp. There are a number of surprisingly inexpensive models with DVD players in the same unit. Here is an example:

Hopes this helps:)

Where to plug in the home theater on the tv?

If you REALLY want to plug your tv into your home theater system there should be rca (red and white) jacks on the back of the tv that say "audio out" or "speaker out" thats your tv's audio output. which is where you would plug in the TV to your home theater system.

But there's really no reason to do this and its not the most desirable way to set u a home theater. Sound doesnt come from your tv, and therefore your tv shouldnt be plugged into speaker (unless you have old school wal cable) sound comes from your cable box, DVD player, VHS, Xbox, Ps3 etc. the sound comes from your source, and these sources should be hooked up directly you your home theater reciever

No Audio Out through the Optical OUT jack

First and foremost when the chance comes along buy a Harmony remote. Your spouse will love the simplification. A couple of things, On the tv with the optical hose connected and the other end in your hand, do you see the light. Its not a laser and eye safe. Should be a red glow. If not, implies two things the tvs optical is bad or it needs to be enabled via tv menu audio settings. If you see the red glow, then its a protocol issue. Verify your tv is setup on the proper audio mode that your receiver is wanting to see. Probably PCM. I am not directly farmiliar with the tv, but using the dish receiver as a reference (you know its working) set the audio options on the tv similar to the dish receiver. IE pcm, dts, etc.. Let me know thanks
