    Even with no disc in the machine the "DVD" picture is tinged green. Have tried swapping scart leads.

This could be a back light problem with either the lamp itself or the inverter power supply. You should contact the service department for possible repairs. Hope this helps you.

How have you got it hooked up, Component, S- Video, composite? Have you tried another method? Sounds like you could have a faulty cable...

I have a coby dvd 224 player connected to Emerson tv, and all I see on screen word video and no picture.


if you're using RCA video cables red white and yellow plug the yellow wire from the DVD player into the green input on the TV and then plug the two audio cables red and white into the same input red and white on the TV it's the green one that carries the video signal this is generally call the component input because it breaks down the colors into their components most DVD players do not have component outputs but if you hook the green and the yellow from the DVD player you should get a picture

Hook up to view dvd's to tv video cables with yellow white and red plug ins.


Hello, here is a sample for auxilary connection for the chdvd300: . Use the AV (Audio/Video) cable
provided to connect the DVD player to
your TV as shown in the diagram.
. Your TV must be equipped with AV
inputs like those pictured to the right in
order to connect this unit.
. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you
will need a RF Modulator to connect this
player to your TV's antenna/cable input.
RF Modulators are available at major
electronics retailers.

. The goal is to see the DVD player's splash screen on your
TV. To do this, select the Video Input channel on your TV
that corresponds with the input the player is plugged into.
This procedure differs among TVs, but is normally done by
pressing the VIDEO IN or INPUT button on the TV's remote
control to select the Video Input.

you're ready to go!

Toshiba sd-k970 dvd player sound but no video.


I presume that you've selected the correct inputs on the TV? Go for HDMI if you have it on your TV. If not use the yellow (composite) and ensure you have nothing in the S-Video (Toshs don't like using composite and S-video at the same time).

you may need to change the settings for video out. If the video is set to Progressive scanning and P Y R (green, blue, red cables) then it won't display video using the yellow cable. turn progressive scanning off and maybe try to select S video output. that worked for me. of course u mite have to have a tv that has both yellow video input and blue green red video input to see the menu to start with.

Sound but no picture


Your player has several outputs and you might want to start with the basic Video Audo Left Right output first.

Set your with your plazma to see if you can change the input types to accept the video and audio input which will probably be labeled AV 1, AV 2 and so on.

My guess is that you have it set for Component Red Blue Green which his a high def (just before HTMI) and requires a separate audio cable. Your player, depending on the age of the unit, probably will not have Red Blue Green picture output.

Next if you have an HTMI output from your player hook that to your Plazma in the HDMI 1 position and select it on the TV's setting. Audio and Video are both carried in the HDMI cable.

Good luck, my name is Eric Kirkhuff

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


ruettab,

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

cheers,
mark
