Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony KP-57WS500 I think this might be really simple. I can't play my DVD player or my PS3 on this television through the audio video input (red,white, and yellow). When I go to what should be "Video 1" It says "Satillite" on the screen. When I go to what should be "Video 2 it says "DVD" on the screen and when I get to "Video 3" It says "8mm". Neither of the corresponding inputs work. I have tried the devices on other television and they work just fine.

I have the 3 RCA red, yellow, white cables on back of dvd and to tv. Video only plays when I select video 1 under the input. When when I select video 3 only sound and no video. What else can I try?


Sounds like from the symptoms that you have plugged the white and red cables into AV3 input on the back of the Teleivsion and plugged the yellow cable into AV1 on the back of the Television.
Check the cables are all plugged into AV1 input ports on the back of the Television. Red and White go into the Audio inputs and Yellow goes in the video input. Also make sure you have not plugged cables into component inputs on television look for AV1 in on back of Television .

How to tune up dvd player


  • Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of RCA audio and video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. The colors of these cables are yellow (video), white (left audio) and red (right audio).

Take the other end of the RCA audio and video cables and connect them to the color-corresponding inputs on your television. When plugging in these cables, look for a label for the input, such as "Video 1" and "Audio 1." This will be important in Step 5.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the video input channel that you noted in Step 3. If you did not take note, you can also tune through your television's input channels until you find the one displaying the signal from the DVD/VCR player.

Insert a VHS tape or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

Component Video

Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of component video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. These cables will look similar to composite audio and video cables, but they are instead color-coded as red, blue and green.

Plug the other end of the component video cables into the color-corresponding inputs on your television. Take note of what input number you are plugging the cords into, as it will be useful later.

Connect a set of RCA audio cables to "Audio Out" jacks on your VHS/DVD player, then connect the other ends to your television. These cables are color-coded as red and white and must be plugged into the same input number as the component video cables.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the component video input channel where you connected the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Insert a VHS or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

Sony kp 51ws510 upgrade to HD - how to do this


There are inputs on the back of the set. If your tv is Sony 51ws510 then it is capable of HD, but you have to have component or DVI cables to connect the tv to the HD device (HD cable box or DVD player).
<br>

<br>
On your set the component inputs on the back of the tv are video5 and video6 in the middle located in a vertical line (red, green, blue rca video connections with red and white rca audio connections).
<br>

<br>
You also have a DVI input toward at the top of the input panel (white connector with red and white rca audio connectors).

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.

Video inputs


How is this distorted? Does DVD only have Video/Audio jacks or do it have RF output connection and if so have you tried going inset that way? How does it looks with only Dvd Logo on? If Logo is ok then I would look for some other problem.
