AV Out Keeps Turning Off

When I connect the camera directly to a TV or monitor, the picture intermittenly goes out. The camera remains on and fine but I have to physically unplug the AV cable from the front of the camera and plug it back in and the picture returns to the TV. I've tried different cables and now I know it's the camera.

Okay well you have to eject the tape and leave the eject open. There is an auto timer that always turns off the picture. If you open up the tape eject and leave it open the camera will always stay on.

I'm trying to hookup my Toshiba DR430KU to an older tv that require an RF Modulator. I get a skewded sideways picture. Does This DVDR compatable with a RF Modulator?


Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).

RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.

RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.

I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.

Hi, I have an LG Flatron TV which I bought 6 years ago. Good picture, no problems until now. I put the set on standby via the remote. Later, when I put it on via the remote all I got was sound and no...


Since the screen keeps turning off and sound only remains have a look at the inverter board for any buldging capacitors which look like blue cans, there is most probably a short in the inverter and the powersupply is sensing this thus turning it back into standby to prevent damage to the tv.

Ghosts on my tv


if you can, try hooking up the tv to a different cable line in the house or bring a different tv into the room where the bad picture is [ you may have a bad connection or wire ] if this doesn't help, try rabbit ear antennas just to get a picture. if you still have ghosts on your tv, the problem is with your tv.if the picture is fine, there maybe a problem with your cable service.
hope this helps

This is bad. You need to either be under warranty on these big screen TVs or get the service manual. Especially since this is an off brand.

AV Label keeps Appearing Continuously


The first thing I would do is take the batteries out of the remote and see if the symptom goes away. A bad button on the remote could be sending rong signals. There are other possibilities, but you really should start with the easiest one.
