When I try to use my DVD player, I use the video source button and it switches to "S-video" where there is sound but no picture, just a black screen. This is a new thing- it used to just say "video" when I switched to video! My child may have pushed a button or something, but I have been through EVERY menu and can't find any options for different video sources. The ONLY options are "antenna/cable" and "S-video". I have tried everything, please help!

Re: video source isn't working right
1. S-video doesn't supply the sound signal but what could be happening. You will need the user manual. I will need the model number for your TV unit. You will have to see if there is another button for video select.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Get the sound back on the TV. Then check what source you have selected. Look at the back of the TV, and make sure that you have connected the video from the DVD player to the video input for that source.
You know some dvd /tv's need a ' s video plug '.
With out it you will get sound but no picture.
Take a look at back of your dvd player/tv for a plug in called s video.
Try it. Hopefully it works and solve your problem. It's great if i helped you. :)
Hi, it sounds like your problem is that you've selected the wrong "video input" for your DVD player. Your new television most likely has at least 3-4 (sometimes 6-7) different inputs for video. With your DVD player connected and turned on, press the "Source" button on your TV to cycle through the different inputs. Be sure to wait 2-4 seconds between selections to give your TV enough time to switch inputs. If your DVD player has "color coded" output cables, it's most likely a "component" video connection. See if one of your video inputs on the TV is called "Component". Some other video types are Video, DTV, HDMI, SVideo, Component, Composite, RGB, PC Input, etc...
You either need to change the input source. Currently the source is TV, depending on how you connected the DVD player to the TV, it should be composite (A/V), component video or HDMI. (S-video is also a possibility. Very few DVD players are connected on the RF (coax) input which might be channel 3 or 4 without having a converter between the DVD player and the TV.)
Look on your TV remote for a button marked Source or Input. You may also find this button on the TV. (On some TVs, this may also be accessed through the menus.)
How did you connect the TV and the DVD player? If your audio and video were connected via three RCA plugs (yellow, red, white) on each end, then use the composite video input. If you used cables with 3 RCA plugs for video (yellow, green, blue) and 2 for audio (red/white), then switch to the component input. If you used HDMI which carries audio and video in one cable (with rectangular ends), then use the HDMI input.
Some older TVs only have the Source/Input button on their original remote. Not all universal replacement remotes have this button, you may need a different remote. Those that do may require you to try additional codes for your TV manufacturer to enable the button. (The on./off buttons often will work with more of the codes for a brand.) The ones that can be programmed via a USB connection to a computer are most likely to support the function. Please add a comment with the type of TV for additional help with this.
The source button is used to switch video source such as the video input at the back or the vdeo at the built in player.TV tuner ..Just like the amplifier reciever it is called as auxiliary input selector.thank you.
Isn't this a funny thing? No, there's no button to press, just turn on the external source and have the entertainment center switched to DVD. The unit will detect the external source trying to provide the feed and switch to AUX. Same thing if you only have audio input, ie just red and white RCA plugs attached.
open up your dash get 1 short RCA cable (red and white) male ends on them
now place the red and white RCA into the back of DVD in-dash player next step the aftermarket CD player should have 2 rca plugs that say aux put the other end red and white RCA cable that you just put into DVD unit into the aux inputs on back of CD player when this is done reinstall both units back into the dash now on your CD player press the source button till aux appears once this is done you will hear the DVD player sound...........now if you press the source button and no aux appears......hold down the source button till the CD player powers off...........once CD player is off hold down the F (function) button till beep or unit turns on a display use the skip buttons or F (function) button to go threw features once you get to aux turn aux to on now hold the source button down again till unit powers on normally once this is done press source button again till you find aux........if you get sound and the TV doesn't work let me know and ill guide you to get that running too (if there are no aux RCA plugs on the back of CD player) let me know (sometimes there is a headphone looking plug on back of CD units) if what i told you doesn't work let me know the brand of CD player you have so i can give you correct setups I'm only going by your in-dash DVD player right now
hope i was able to help get you sound
It is likely that you don't have the right input to the television. First get a source that you know works. How about a DVD player. Get the cables from your DVD player (should be yellow RCA or "Phono" plug for the composite video out put.) Connect only the yellow video out put to your t.v. input and then press the av input button until you see the picture (note: besure that the DVD player is turned on and you have a dvd in it. We sometimes miss the very basics).
Once you get the picture than connect the audio cables, should be red and white to the corresponding colors. Do you have audio now?
If this test worked fine, it is likely that the solution to your other problem is that you have it on the wrong av input and need to press that button a few more times to find your satallite or cable input. There is a possibility that you are trying to use the tuner in your T.V. and it may be again as simple as choosing antenna input and that too needs to be hooked up to a good source.
