    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...

My panasonic dvd player will not show the whole screen when in dvd mode


Hi

First make sure your Panasonic has 16:9 TV mode selected within its menu. Then try chainging the picture size on your TV. You didn't say what model TV you have. On my Samsung you would press the menu key then select picture, scroll down and select picture size. From hear you can select 16:9, wide zoom, zoom, 4:3. Try looking for picture size and selecting 16:9 on your TV.

Vcr tape doesn't show on screen when playing


Hi there,

If the picture from the DVD shows on the screen, but the pictire from the VCR does not, it is most likely because you are using sockets on the back of the player that are exclusively for the output from the DVD.

Please review your connections in relation to the diagram below. If the cables from the player to the TV are only in the red box, you will not get any picture from the VCR. You will need to move the connections to the sockets in the green box or add a separate connection for the VCR using the sockets in the green box. Whether or not this is possible depends on what input sockets are available on your TV.

You will notice the heading above the red box says "DVD". This means the connections in this section can only be used for DVD. The heading above the green box says "DVD/VCR" meaning the connections here can be used for both.

There are a fews ways to set this up. To get the best picture quality from DVD, you should continue using any connections you may have in the red box and add another cable from the green box to the TV for the VCR. You will also need to select different INPUTS on the TV depending on whether you want to watch DVD or VCR if you are using 2 cables.

I suspect this will be the cause of your problem. If you need any further explanation or assistance, please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question. If you would like me to draw a connection diagram between the DVD/VCR and your TV, please let me know the brand and model number of your TV.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

We're not getting any sound from the dvd's. I have two cables (green/blue/red) and (red/white). but I'm at a loss how to connect from DVD to TV. Help please!


If your TV has the green, blue, red inputs then connect these 3 cables for the picture. DVD to TV, green to green, blue to blue and red to red. If your TV only has a yellow input, then connect the green cable only from the DVD yellow to the TV yellow. Now for the sound. Connect the DVD white to the TV white. Connect the DVD red to the TV red with the red cable. The white and red inputs will be next to the yellow and the green, blue, red inputs on the TV. Next select the TV input using your TV remote. Select the input for the DVD connection.

I HAVE NO AUDIO, AND THE PICTURE KEEPS ON SCROLLING ACROSS THE SCREEN, ALSO THE COLOR ARE ORANGE AND GREEN


How is it connected? If you are using the RGB (Component cables) then you could have hooked up the Blue to green and vice versa On some sets the Blue and Green are so close that its easy to cross them form either the DVD player or the monitor.
As for the audio, if you can see the home screen, use the remote to navigate back ( left arrow all the way, then down to the audio set up screen) check to see what the audio default is set to. If you are using the standard analog stereo ( white and red) select this option and return to playback mode. Hope it helps.

Green Picture


The problem sounds like one I had. If so, the cause is as follows.

The Daewoo ouputs synchronisation information on the green channel of the RGB outputs (which are pins in the SCART socket) The Panasonic TV automatically preferentially selects the RGB input in the SCART rather than the composite video signal in the SCART. The video circuits in the Panasonic should ignore the sync on the green channel but instead interpret the sync as green signal information which means the adjustment of the green channel is upset leading to a very green picture.

Possible solutions:
1. From the TV, manually select composite video input, not RGB. This may not be possible - I think the TV automatically goes for the RGB if it is present.
2. Disconnect the wire to pin 16 in the SCART socket. This is the signal from the VCR/DVD to indicate that RGB is available. Disconnecting it means the TV defaults to the composite video. This is what I did.
3. Connect the TV to the VCR/DVD using component or S-VHS leads only.

Component cables not working properly


Make sure to set the "TV Output Select" in the DVR4200's menu to "Component" not "S-Video". **** Page 19 of the manual.
