Question about RCA Televison & Video

1 Answer

I am connecting a RCA DVD player (DRC277B) to my TV and have problems when using the HDMI cable. When I connect the unit using the AV Cable, things work OK. I then turned off everything and hooked the player and TV with a new HDMI cable, changing the input of the TV to the correct HDMI plug. When I connect with the HDMI cable I get a icon that reads "No Signal" that dances across the TV screen. Pushng the "setup" button on the remote produces no change; but, pushing the HDMI button on the remote causes the "No Signal" icon to disappear for about five seconds, then it reappears. This tells me that there is a connection between the DVD player and the TV (i.e. it is probably not the cable). Please advise.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal!

If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not necessarily digital broadcasts

Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a difference. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    1. If so you can get yourself a component cable and connect the DVD player to the TV using those plugs. Otherwise, you will need to get an RCA to HDMI converter.Nov 23, 2015

I can not get the pic on the tv


Hi,

If this is a new DVD player that you have connected to your TV,
It can be connected in three different ways using three different cables.
only one type is required
  • one way is using a RCA cable, which is a yellow plug on the DVD and TV
  • another way is a S video cable, which is round and has multiple pins.
  • and the third way is a HDMI cable which is rectangular with multiple pins
Which every one you use, for eg if you use a HDMI cable to connect it up to the TV you will need to select HDMI on your TV via the remote and press TV/AV until you get to HDMI.

Also most DVD players have a menu to set up, which you can select what type of output picture lead you are using, Eg. HDMI or Composite = RCA or S Video.
I have enclosed a picture to determine which lead you are using.
If your TV is HDMI then this will give the best picture quality then S Video then composite RCA.

I hope this helps you

The player does play the dvd's and everything but the picture wont show up in my television. I already connected the RCA connectors into the television and the player but still no picture. Please Help.


Assuming you used the standard YELLOW-WHITE-RED RCA cable, between the unit and the TV, the colours of each of the plugs should match both the outputs on the rear of the unit and the respective inputs at the rear of the TV. The TV must also be on an AV input 'channel' to receive the connected unit. (for example, AV1 or VIDEO 1)

Try changing the RCA cables - just in case the ones you currently have are defective in some way.

Being a combo unit, there should be a DVD-VCR common output on the rear - using RCA cable, the YELLOW is video, the WHITE is left channel, the RED is right - these MUST match the input on the TV, and the TV AV input must be selected in order to view the pictures and audio from the unit. To enjoy both VCR and DVD, using the RCA connection, the common output on the rear of the combo unit is recommended.

Better quality video is possible using S-Video cable (available from electronics stores such as Radio Shack etc. but this does not provide audio; you would still require RCA RED-WHITE cable for that, and your TV may not have S-Video input). Your TV may have a TV/AV button on the front - select the correct AV 'channel' with that if necessary.

It makes sense to check everything twice before assuming anything is broken.

I AM TRYING TO CONNECT A DX-UPDVD2 PLAYER TO MY TV. I HAVE DVR FROM CABLE COMPANY THAT IS CONNECTED TO MY TV AND NOT ENOUGH PLACES TO CONNECT DVD TO TV HELP


Hello,
Depending on what type of connection you are using from the cable companies DVR to your TV and what type of connections you have on your TV you can try the following..
1. As your DVD player supports HDMI, component and composite video out, check to see which spare AV inputs you have on your TV and connect the corresponding free input on your TV to the matching connector on your DVD player. You will also need to hook up audio from the player to this AV input on your TV using the options available on your TV (either RCA phono or optical in).
2. If you have no other AV inputs on your TV then buying an HDMI switcher or a component switcher or a simple an RCA phono y cable for composite video will allow you to connect both your DVR and DVD to the same TV input.
Hope this helps.

HOW TO PLAY DVD PLAYER WITH THE TV


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • DVD
  • RCA, component, or HDMI cable(s)
  1. Decide what type of connection to use. Look at the back of your DVD player. It should at least have RCA (red, yellow, white) output ports. It may also have component out, S-video out, VGA out, or HDMI out. These connections vary in picture quality and price, HDMI being the most expensive and providing for the highest-quality picture. Whichever type of connection you decide to use, you also need to verify that you have the same connection on your TV. Flat screen TVs typically have more connection options than other types of TVs, so you should at least have component, RCA and HDMI inputs.
  2. Connect the DVD payer to the flat screen TV. Take one end of the cable or cables you decided to use and connect to the output on the DVD player. The other end should be connected to the corresponding input on the TV. Video input connections are usually found on the sides of flat screen TVs. Once the DVD player has been connected, you are ready to use your DVD player.
  3. Check DVD player functionality. Tune your TV to the input that you used for your DVD player by pressing the button on your remote labeled "input," "source," "TV/video," Source select," "TV/AV" or the like. For instance, if you used an HDMI cable plugged into your TV's "HDMI 1" input, press the input selection button until you see HDMI 1 on the screen. Power on the DVD player, insert a DVD into the player and press play and you should now see a feed from your DVD player.

How to connect motorola cable box to samsung dvd/vcr model vr375 to a Westinghouse hdtv with 2 hdmi connections


The DVD-VR375 does not have an HDMI input. The connection should be:
• RED WHITE & YELLOW CABLE from your cable box (AV OUT) should connect to the DVD-VR375 (AV IN 1). Set the DVD-VR375 to AV 1 using the INPUT SEL. button.
• Next, connect an HDMI cable from the DVD-VR375 (HDMI OUT) to the TV (HDMI IN). Set the TV to the proper source.
This connection would allow the recorder to work as a pass through and will let you record TV programs as well as watch your cable channels.

Hope this helps!

NO sound and NO cable signals


Is your tv connected to your cable box through HDMI, AV, or component?
_____________________________

If its through HDMI then your cable carrier needs to load updated frimware in your box to communicate properly with your 2005 tv. The firmware loaded in your cable box needs to be "reverse compatible" for first generation HDMI from your 2005 tv. If your using AV or component hook-up and there's no sound then re-check all of your audio settings within the tv's menu. Also recheck the cable-wire your using and proper input/output ports.



ON your dvd player, is your tv connected through component, AV(rca) or HDMI?

If its through "component" then you need an extra audio cable to and from the DVD and tv.
