Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Macrovision I have just bought a Pioneer DV-300 DVD player to play through my 15-year old Sharp 14VT10NZ television. I can only plug it into the AV input. The picture keeps on fading in and out. Is this something to do with Macrovision? If so, how can I disable it?

Hello again. I should have been more specific (posted this before I had done all my homework). The TV is actually a TV/VCR combination machine. I believe that the problem may be that the signal from the DVD player passes through the VCR component before reaching the screen, and DVD discs with macrovision coding will cause the fade-out phenomenon. Is there any way around this? Would an RF convertor (DVD signal going into antenna aerial) or a digital video stabiliser be worth trying? I really don't want to ditch the TV/VCR yet as it is a brilliant machine, and I don't want all the extra clutter of separate VCR, cables, remotes etc. Thanks

Hi,
This sounds like a compatability issue.
If you buy a new DVD, you gotta buy a new T/V to go with it.
Alternatively, you could try a scart box and cable through that.
Or try outputting through the antenna via coax, see if any of these resolve your problems.

Warning: Laser inside! If you want to open it up and troubleshoot, make sure you don't point toward your eyes.
Check the nylon laser carriage to see if it slides laser from center to outside line. If it sticks, it's probably shutting down from not properly reading a disk.

How to use the usb port on Pioneer DV-410V DVD Player


Dear friends in problem solving.
My husband actually solved this problem by writing in the browser: Manual for Pioneer DV-410V DVD player.
That was available online and there it said that not all formats was supported by the USB port, so we tried to load a movie on a pen drive, insert it in the player and it opened and we just clicked play, so it was actually an issue of having an incompatible video file on the pen drive that made it not open in the first place.
