Question about Philips DVP5140 DVD Player

1 Answer

I am hooking up a dvd player with the black and white wires

Maybe because I technically challenged but when I just took out my vcr and now replaced it with this dvd player I can't get it to work. The meaning, is that I can't understand how the cables for the box can't be hooked up to the dvd player. In my opinion, it just doesn't make sense. Any help once again would be great fully helpful.

The most basic hook up you can do is use a composite AV cable(yello/red/white). This cable should have come with your player. Check your TV it has those available inputs. They are also color coded. On the back of your player, there is only one yellow colored jack so there should be no problem in identifying where to plug the composite video cable(yellow). Put the composite audio cables (red and white) to the DVD player Audio Out jacks (red and white). Then plug the other end of those cables on the back of your TV. Just make sure they are INPUTS on the TV and colored the same - yello/red/white.

Then find your TV's correct viewing channel. It is not channle 3 or 4. Depending on the TV brand, it may be called AV, INPUT, VIDEO, GAME, SOURCE, AUX, EXT., etc. To find that channel, you may need to check the instructions on your TV manual. Most of the time, there are buttons on the TV remote control or on the TV itself. Sometimes, you need to go into the TV Menu.

The eject function on the DVD works only occasionally. The VCR function works perfectly. What is wrong? Thanks. Keith


Usually this means that the DVD tray has dust and dirt build up on the underside of the tray or the belt maybe slipping.

My Sony DVD/VCR combo will play cds but not dvds. I took the top of the player off and I can see that the dvd spins but it won't play. It used to play everything very well but just stopped working...


Please clean laser lens with good quality cotton bud gently and check dvd disc playback, if still does not play, replace optical lens block.
Let me know model number of your Sony DVD-VCR combo to provide you optical laser block part number info.
Thanks.

Unable to operate recorder at all.


When you are turning the recorder on it is blocking the signal for cable going to the TV. Your TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the dvd/vcr player channel output is set to. This is why your tv is asking you to re-scan. It is losing the video signal because the dvd/vcr is taking over. The reason why the vcr with the button on the remote is because the vcr button is changing the function of the buttons on the remote to vcr. Even though the dvd/vcr is one unit they still will act like two seperate components independent of each other. They have seperate power buttons and the dvd player part may need to be hooked up seperately with rca cables to work.
