    Tried your solutions but to no avail, all I get is 'picture format not available' flashing on and off. "Thanks for trying guys - any more ideas?" he asks hopefully.

Assuming you have connected the DVD to the component (red / green / blue phono) connectors at the back of the set, and the TV is set to EXT5 then the problem is a setting on the DVP5980.

Check the Upscaling setting on the DVP5980 by pressing the HD UPSCALE button on the unit. Cycle through the options until you get a picture. The 30PF9975/12 is not fully HD compatible, so may only support the lower resolutions. (If any)

If this does not work, connect the DVP5980 with the scart and power on the without a disc in the tray.

Press Setup on the remote.

Press the right arrow button twice to get to the VideoSetup Page.

Move down to the Component setting an change from RGB to INTERLACE.

Disconnect the scart and connect the component lead. Select EXT 5 on the TV.

If the picture appears correctly, go back to the Video Setup Page and change the progressive option to On.

Hi,
  • If I understand your question correctly you want to watch your DVD on your TV thru your receiver,
  • you need to connect either composite connections "Audio/Video Output " red/white/yellow RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your receiver
  • ( pls note that component to composite conversion is not possible on receiver ..use one type connection thru all the way )
  • to "Audio/Video input " red/white/yellow RCA jacks or "Optic Cable input" of your TV
  • than just switch to DVD mode on corresponding your RCA or Optic connection...
There you go..Your DVD sound and video both are on the TV..

Why original DVDs appear in Black and white only when palyed on the Sony DVP-NS57P player?


Usually, when you get a black and white version of the film, either the cable connection is messed up or the dvd signal and the tuner are mismatched (say NTSC TV getting a PAL signal from the dvd).

The cable mismatch would be connecting composite video output (using the AV cable that came with the unit) to one of the three video jacks of the component video input on the TV. The obvious first thing to check is that the cables are good and in the correct configuration (yellow to yellow for composite or red, green and blue to red, green and blue). Try a new cable in case there is a damaged cable, particularly with a component video cable.

The tuner mismatch is more common with the handheld dvd players.

I hope this helps.

How to connect dvp 3356 t0 samsung 29 inch tv with crt tube.


Please check the connection. If you are connecting the 3 RCA cables to DVD component input/output, you need another pair of RCA cables to connect to audio out (FL&FR rear of DVD player) and Audio in (L&R) in your TV set. Else connect 3 RCA cable in 1-Video out & 2 Audio out of DVD player and 1-Video in & 2 Audio-in of TV.

I just purchased a Sherwood RD 6513 reciever, I'm trying to connect a hd cable box (motorola dch 3200), dvd player (sony dvp ns710h) and a rca hd tv (l32hd41). I connected hdmi cords from both components...


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you. I f you are going to hook up your cable box - motorola to the sherwood receiver, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the motorola cable box, there is only 1 hdmi output there, then connect the other end to the sherwood receiver on the hdmi input, then connect another hdmi cable to the hdmi output and the other end goes to your rca hd tv.

for the sony dvp, you have only one hdmi out, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the sony dvp if u have another spare. connect it to the hdmi input of the sherwood receiver. there is only 1 hdmi output at the sherwood, so u need to use a component cable to be connected at the back of the sherwood receiver component output then the other end goes to the component input of the hd tv.

if you dont have anymore hdmi cable to hook up your sony dvp, u can use component cable, the connection will goes like this, connect a component cable on the output of the sony dvp and the other end goes to the sherwood component input then connect another component cable to the component output of the sherwood and the other end goes to the rca hd tv on the component input.

I hope this will solve your concern, if you have any question, u can get in touch..

Trying to connect sony dvd player to hdtv


You will need some cables first. It's really not that difficult once you know what each cable does.

Since you're only connecting from the DVD player to a receiver, this should be simple.

There are 4 solutions depending on what cables you have.

Composite - Yellow, Red, and White ended connectors.
S-Video - Black 4-pin connectors.
Component - Green, Blue, Red and sometimes extra Red, White for audio.
HDMI - heavy cable with a wide/flat connector.

Composite connection - Connect the yellow end to the yellow Video Out of the DVD player and to the DVD Video In on the receiver. Connect the Red audio connector to the Red Audio out of the DVD player, the White connector to the White Audio out of the DVD player, and then connect those to the Red and White Ins for DVD Audio on the Receiver.

S-Video Connection - This is the same as the Composite video connection, but connect the black 4-pin cable into the S-Video out of the DVD player and into the In for DVD on the back of the receiver instead of using the yellow video cable. The S-Video cable is a video only cable and uses the same audio cables (the red and white ended cables) for audio.

Component Connection - On the back of the DVD player, connect the 3 video cables that are Red to Red, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green. These will be labeled Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. Connect these video cables to the inputs of the receiver the same way Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. The audio connection is the same as composite and there should be a place on the DVD player that will tell you what audio is for Component. This is also the same on the back of the receiver.

HDMI Connection - This one is the easiest to connect as your audio and video are in the same cable. Plug in your HDMI cable in the back of the DVD player (there should only be one) and then to the HDMI connection for DVD on the back of the receiver.

Now...once you have your connections made, turn on your DVD player, set your receiver to DVD, and enjoy.

If your receiver does not have video inputs, you will need to run the video lines directly to your TV while the audio lines go to your receiver. This will mean you will need to set the receiver to DVD as well as change the channel of the TV to the input you have the DVD player plugged into.

I hope this helps.
