Do you have an S Video cable connection on the DVD player? I'd try that If you have one or component (red green blue) cable or even the composite (yellow) connection. The SCART connection on the input PCB of the tv could be damaged. The cost of this board may be pricey so if you can use the other type of connections with the DVD player I'd recommend that or get a DVD player that has one of those. Your model does not have HDMI so those are your only other options. Hope this helped

How do I connect to tv there is nothing on the screen from the DVDs player


It depends on your connections for one thing. I did find this piece of information on the DVD player:
"One thing they do not state (in the manual) is that if you are playing it through your Scart socket to your TV. Your TV's Scart socket must be PAL60 compliant".

If they both have HDMI sockets I would get a HDMI cable and connect via that. You will also get a better picture than a scart.

If you are using a scart the connector can also become faulty either inside or a faulty pin so check that too.

Sound but no picture


Could be several things. Suggest you check the scart connection to the TV. Is it in the right socket? Is it fully plugged in? Have you selected the right input on the TV? Try a different Scart lead if you have one.

I need to know how to hook my DVD player to ,y Samsung TV. I have it hooked up and have a picture but its in black and white.


look on the back of the television and the DVD player, there should be a SCART socket and/or red, white and yellow AV sockets, either use a SCART lead and connect it to the SCART on the DVD player and the TV.Or use an AV lead with 3 auxiliary shape connectors and match the colour of each connector with the female sockets on both the TV and the DVD player instead of using the other component connections.

When I switch on my dvd even the set up page is in black and white. Originally I was getting no picture so I made sure everything was plugged in. Then I got the black and white.


Check the scart cable , try connecting it to another scart socket on the tv. I would even change the scart lead to make sure its ok. I have had loads of similar problems like that caused by scart leads faulty or connected to the wrong socket.

The picture is blue when I play a dvd. I recently connected it to a new Vizio TV. The other tv it was connected to gave us a good picture.


Check your connections for faults, also some connections on TV's are for RGB inputs, so you might have to try another connector or if you can switch the DVD's output to RGB etc.

UMC 19in TV with built-in DVD player - model L19/7TCD


Try connecting earphones or headphones to the 3.5mm Headphone socket on the TV and check this works correctly, i.e hear TV when watching TV, hear DVD when watching a DVD etc.
If all is OK, purchase a 3.5mm Jack to L/R Audio/Phono cable. Connect the 3.5mm jack in to the headphone socket on the TV and connect the red/white phone ends to the 5.1 surround system.
It should solve it. SCART out is not always live in all sources so is not a reliable way to connect.

How can i watch dvds on this old sanyo tv?


does your tv have a scart socket or is it pre scart, if it does, and you connect the dvd player via the scart then the tv should auromativally switch to av when the dvd player is switched on. failing that, if you have no scart, then the only way you can watch dvd is by connecting a flylead from dvd player to tv, (take out antenna and put it in that socket) and then start a search if you can, normally the buttons for this are behind a flap somewhere on the tv. if you have no scart or a way of tuning tv, then i dont think you can watch dvd through that tv

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.
