  • jeffm675 Mar 01, 2009

    I purchased my plasma 4 1/2 years ago and recently purchased a larger set. When I disconnected the Panasonic for the first time since original installation to move it to another location in the house and reconnected it I was able to receive full audio but only the menu was functional and I was unable to receive any video signal on any input. I made sure to check the same input connections on another TV that I knew was working and the feed was fine. It sucks that I paid $2,700 for the set less than 5 years ago and now I am being quoted an obscene amount by a local repair facility to replace the main video card. Unfortunately, a basically good TV is about to fill up the landfill due to poor component quality from Panasonic. Thanks Panasonic, I think I know what brand not to buy in the future,

There is no sound on my Sony SLV-D350P DVD Player / VCR Combo. The only section that works great is the VCR, but the DVD player sound just went out for some reason. I've changed the RCA cables, and...


Hi, As long as you have the picture it means that DVD's Laser Eye is Ok.. Pls Check your connections to make sure the audio and video cables of both VCR and DVD are properly hooked up to the television. Color coded cables should be matched with the jacks of equal color. Yellow corresponds to video while red and white are both audio.

Ensure the DVD is in standby mode if you are not getting picture from the VCR. The DVD cannot be running at the same time as the VCR is playing when you want to see the VCR picture.

Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for older TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use two inputs. though: any component- or S-video-equipped TV will offer sufficient inputs for both of the SLV-D350P's formats.
It's a different arrangement for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial,). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit DVD/VHS audio and video to your TV.
In conclusion,for a best tech solution I prpose you to connect DVD audio directly to your Stereo and listen as separate audio source.while Video goes to TV as usual. Hope this helps! if you need more help pls contact me..Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)

I AM TRYING TO HOOK UP A SONY DVD PLAYER TO AN INSIGNIA TV/DVD COMBO. CAN IT BE DONE. IF SO DO U NEED A DIFFERENT CABLE OR EXACTLY HOW DO YOU CONNECT THE TWO....THANKS


It will depend on the TV/DVD combo and the DVD player. Most TV/DVD combos can have another device attached but you will need to get the cable. Since you posted this under the Insignia IS-DVD1001, I'm not sure which TV or DVD player you have.

In general, look at the back of the TV and the DVD player and see what ports are on both (input on TV and output on the DVD player). If you have HDMI out on the DVD player and HDMI in on the TV, get an HDMI cable and use that; generally you do not need the most expensive cables available. The next best choice is Component video and A/V audio. One cable with three RCA plugs (red, blue and green) on both ends carries the video and a second cable with two RCA plugs (white and red) carries the audio. The third choice is composite video or S-video and the audio. (Composite video is usually designated by yellow and is again an RCA plug. S-video is like a large version of a PS2 (keyboard or mouse) connector. All of these cables are available at electronics stores, stores that sell cables or electronic accessories.

If the two do not have the same ports, you need an appropriate converter (or modulator if the input port is the coax port on the TV). You can find many of these at RadioShack or online.

I hope this helps.

Make sure if your using the video input jacks, that the yellow is plugged into Video 1 and the same with the audio.Red & White. If your using Component, they are color coded- Red Blue & Green along with the Audio In -Red & White. It sounds like you have the video in the wrong jack.

I change Component Cable Video & Audio 6 cables


I might sound stupid but Double check that you`ve connected the correct connectors as in All Inputs plugs being used or All outputs plugs being used. If you have one of these leads with 6 connectors on one lead, (Audio Input L+R, Video Input, Audio Output L+R, Video Output) You need to make sure that if you get sound from the audio input plugs, then you must use the video input plug and vice verse.

Hi....

Get a new A/ V cable for the PS2

Can't get my dvd/vcr to tape and play back


Color codes for A/V cables:

Yellow: Composite Video
Red: Right Audio Channel
White: Left Audio Channel (mono)

Does your TV have a video & audio OUTPUT on the back of the TV?

If so, will need another set of audio/video cables and you need to connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the TV to the video INPUT (yellow) of the DVD/VCR and connect the Red cable from the right OUTPUT of the TV to the red INPUT of the DVD/VCR. Then connect the white cable from the left OUTPUT of the TV to the white INPUT of the DVD/VCR. If your TV is not in stereo, just connect up the white cable for mono audio.

If your TV set does NOT have audio/video OUTPUTS, then you will still need another set of audio/video cables and connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the cable box to the yellow video INPUT of the DVD/VCR and connect either the red or white (or both if possible) to the red or white audio INPUTS of the DVD/VCR.

You need two sets of cables because you want to watch DVD's & tapes on your TV (Path #1) and you want to record the TV channel shows back to your DVD/VCR (Path #2).

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

PS2 hook-up


I would suggest to feed video from another source such as DVD or VCR to the same input, if the video is visible from other sources on your TV; that means the video cable from your PS2 is defective. If you did not see any video from the DVD or VCR nor the PS2, it means that there maybe a loose connection inside the TV on the video input.
Hope this helps.

Hook up vcr


yes, you need to use an Audio/Video cable (red, white, yellow) to hook to the TV. I've never seen a VCR that doesn't have coax connectors for the antenna input and TV ouput, but maybe the new ones are starting to leave that out. Normally, you run the antenna or cable coax into the VCR's input, then run another coax from the VCR output to the TV's input (or use an A/V cable)

Sanyo TV


Hi,

If I understand your posting/description right, you have:
1, a Sanyo TV with only 1 video input;
2. you have a DVD player with only video output; and
3. you have a VCR (which I will assume to be with both video input and output).

Your query, if I may clarify, is how to hook them up so that you need not connect/disconnect any video cable when you want to switch video source from either DVD or VCR.

If that is what you want, then connect:
a. audio/video OUT of your DVD to audio/video IN of the VCR;
b. audio/video OUT of your VCR to audio/video IN of the TV.

The above described connection would allow you to:
i. watch DVD movies on your TV (your VCR must be powered ON and set to Video INput, your TV must be powered ON & set to Video INput);
ii. watch tape movies from your VCR without disconnecting/connecting cables.

Additionally, this arrangement would allow you to record DVD movies in your VCR. Further, connecting your cable/aerial to the RF INput of your VCR would allow you to do the same with a TV/Cable program.

Incidentally, if one of your units (TV, VCR, DVD) would only have a single audio input, it is still possible since some models uses the white audio RCA connector as either left or mono, the red is right. You can also use a 2 female RCA to 1 RCA male adapter as shown below to joint the red/white audio.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you require additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Panasonic plasma will not display signal


Ous worked a little odd like that also. Even the part about the pip. Try to hook the ps2 through the cable box which then connects to the tv. This worked for our dvd and wii. Hope it works.
