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.

Only sound and No picture in Toshiba DVD/VCR combo


Hello,

maybe your connections are wrong.

The yellow pin is for video, while the white and red pin are for audio left and right.

So, your wires will be connected to video and audio "OUT" from your player and connected to "IN" respectively on your TV.

That's how it gos. Its a input and output law. The Player will be sending out the pictures and sounds (OUT) and the TV will be receiving from the other end (IN).

Its as simple is that. But if there is still no picture, then cross check your video wire (yellow), maybe its bad.

Good luck.

We just received a big screen tv as a gift and we want to hook up our dvd player and our vcr and have lost the manuals. HELP


You can hook your dvd player in tv by using component video input terminal having green-red-blue colors for video signal and red-white for audio signal. so total 5 wires been used here. color order should be exact at both units, tv and dvd player i.e green to green, blue to blue and so on.

vcr can be hooked at composite video input in tv having 3 pins, yellow for video, red-white for audio in both units, vcr and tv. pins color should be exact on both units.

need further help, post here please.
