You need the isolate the problem:

1) Plug the DVD player into a TV
through the same S-Video cable

If the movie plays on the TV, then
the DVD player and cable are OK.

2) Plug another source of S-video signals
(if you have one) into the computer input.

If it works, than the computer hardware & software are OK

3) The third and most likely possibility is that the DISK is
copy protected, and the obedient DVD player is adding
MACROVISION analog copy protection into the S-video
output stream.

S-Video is an analog video format that has two separate
channels: 1 for composite B&W video (i.e. Y, or luminance)
and the other for the color (Chroma). Sound is separate.

Macrovision analog protection technology corrupts the
vertical synchronization and blanking pulses within the B&W
video stream,

which confuses the Automatic Gain Control (AGC) circuitry
of most VCRs. Bill Clinton passed a bill callsed the

"Digital Milenium Act", which makes such garbage VCRs
compulsory within the US.

Macrovision also adds digital pulses into the invisible
scan lines of the output video stream, which are recognized
by DVD recorders, and possibly your computer, such that
they will refuse to accept or record the movie.

Often a macrovision message comes up.

4) Finally, if the video is fine and you don't have
Macrovision problems, there is a strong chance
that your computer's device drivers are not installed
or configured properly, or there is a hardware problem
within the computer.

In either case, the computer manufacturer (tech support)
should be obligated to resolve this issue (4)


5) Inexpensive Macrovision remover boxes are
widely available by searching Google.



Hope this helps

Hi,
VCR video signal wont come out from Component Video Out of combo unit, it is low resolution signal so you need to hook yellow-red-white video cable in tv for VCR output.
Make sure to select VCR as source in combo while playback of VHS tape and select DVD as source when playing dvd disc in combo.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

How do you hook up this dvd player to the tv. the plugs are blue green and red instead of white yellow and red


The DVD player has component video as well as the S-video and RCA video and two RCA audio outputs.

If your player is the same as my picture, the component video jacks are in a horizontal line at the top of the back of the player. The white and red audio jacks are in a vertical line to the left. The yellow video out jack is in the second line just below the component video jacks (in a line with the coax port, the S-video port is in between the coax and the RCA video out). (The white jack is at the top left of the connections block, red below that, and yellow to the right of the red.)

I hope this helps.

Someone gave me a DVD 825/173 player. I need to


if you are intrested in a "simple" hook up, all you need are the Yellow, White, And Red Ports.
Yellow = Video
Red = Right chanel Audio
White = Left chanel Audio and Mono Audio

Most Newer TV's have these basic inputs

S-video is for a "higher quality" video, that is a rather un-noticable dated technology.

And The Co-Ax Audio is for a Single cable connection to an Audio System for Digital Surround Sound.

Useing the ports specified above(Yellow, Red and White) you should be up and running in no time!

Colour gone


Did you possibly switch where your wires are hooked up? I just tried hooking my player up to a new tv and I had a black and white picture at one point. Make sure your video wires hook to the proper colored ports.

Progressive Scan


On 12/29/2007 at 1135pm, I found the solution for yours and my problem. Here is what you need to do. I did the same thing and couldnt get video. If you set Progressive Scan to ON in error , you must reset the unit. Play your dvd, then press "STOP" to stop the disc from playing. Hold the stop button on the dvd player for approx 5 seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

No picture but has sound


Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!
