Yes, because it sounds like your DVD player is connected to a different video input on your TV.

If you want to simplify your setup, I recommend getting a Harmony remote from Logitech. You go through a simple series of setup and then the remote will send the appropriate commands to all your devices to set everything in the right modes with just a single button-press. I don't work for Logitech, I just think it's a good product.

My sony blu ray dvd player that does not have a remote. I'm trying to reset it with a universal but it's not reading it. The play button won't work now for me to manually play it.


Do you have the right code for your remote?

For Sony, DVD players use one of seven codes.

20533, 21533, 20864, 21033, 21070, 21431, 21536.

Try inputting these one at a time into your universal remote until one works.

Will not play on my TV


Well that is not very much information to go on, but I will try to help. You need to have a video cable (either co-ax or HDMI) between the DVD player OUTPUT and an INPUT on the back of the TV. With this done, and the DVD player ON, you will need to push the INPUT button on the TV remote until you see the DVD screen. The input label will match the TV's INPUT plug name that you plugged the cable from the DVD player into.

Unable to get tvchannels after using dvd


These days TV remotes have a "source" button on them. I'd suggest you keep pressing that until you get to the source that has your TV channels. If you don't have a source button on your remote you'll have to find some other way to switch the source channel on your TV.

I lost the instructions. Can you tell me what to do watch a cd or dvd?


As long as your cables are all connected, on your remote you need to change SOURCE or INPUT to change what device is sending the info to your TV. Make sure your DVD is on. The CD/DVD should auto start. If not, just push play on either the remote or the device. Then when you are done push the Input or Source button again to switch your TV back to TV Mode. Hope that helps.

I have a Coby dvd 505 home theater system and it's playing dvd's only in black and white Any suggestions?


There are a few possibilities. 1) You have the system on wrong broadcast system. Press the TV.Sys button on the remote. (In the US, you need the NTSC (analog) broadcast for older TVs). If you have lost the original remote, you need a replacement that matches the feature. See http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=12937326385240&smodel=DVD505&brand_pn=COBY_DVD505 for a substitute remote. 2) You have mismatched cables/inputs.

For the second issue, a composite video cable could be connected to a component video input. If both devices have component video, get a component video cable (red, blue and green for the video, separate red/white cable for audio); it isn't included with the player. Otherwise connect to the composite (AV) connections on the TV (yellow for video, red/white for audio).

If needed, you can reset the player as follows:
****RESET THE DVD PLAYER BACK TO THE DEFAULT SETTING***
1) Open the DVD tray.
2) Press the "Setup" button.
3) On the "Down" arrow, press it three times.
4) On the "Right' arrow, press it once.
5) On the "Down" arrow, press it three times
6) On the "Right" arrow, press it once, then press "Play/Sel" button.
7) Press the Setup button to exit.
*The default setting will take affect as soon as you press the setup button (step 6).

I hope this helps.

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc

Orion model TV1934a - I do not have the original remote - how can I set it to play a DVD. I have generice remote that does work the TV but the input button on the remote does not work.


Try doing a auto channel search while a dvd is on and connected to the TV. An av input is usually reached to the bottom of all the channels. for example pushing the channel below channel two the next one would be AV input.

TV & DVD HookUp (No Box) Can't get picture


As far as I know, my Go Video machine when there was no box involved...

The cable came from the wall to the IN of the Go Video box. Then another cable coming from the OUT of the video box and to the IN to the TV. TV should be on channel 3. As far as I can remember, I don't need to push the TV/VCR button, but instead, have to channel down to below channel 2 on the TV to the LINE/INPUT selection. Once you go there, and the Go-Video machine is on, you should be able to see a clear picture.

You'll push the TV/VCR button if you want to toggle back and forth from the VCR picture to the TV picture (which will be technically blank since it's on the 'line input selection.)

Hope that helps.

Direct tv hdbox & Plasma TV & DVD SSound system & DVD recorder


Need to make sure you have the red,white,and yellow rca connection cables ran from the samsung dvd player to the red,white,yellow input on the back of the dvd recorder. Once you do that make sure you put your dvd recorder on line 1 input. If you look closely on the back of your recorder it should say line 1 input. If your recorder isn't on that input you can put the recorder on line 1 input by using dvd recorder remote and pushing the input button. Make sure you don't push the tv input button the dvd recorder remote there should be a seperate input button or a way to toggle the inputs on the recorder. Once you verify all that turn on your tv and go to the input on your tv that you watch the dvd recorder on and you should see what your recording on the tv.

Recording from vcr


If you hook your VCR up to the RCA jacks on the front of the DVD recorder, push 002 on the remote to use the front input jacks. (001 if you hook your VCR up to the rear input jacks)

Push record on the DVD recorder, and push Play on the VCR.
(Pg. 35 in the manual)

When you push play on the VCR, you should be able to see the movie being played on your TV. If you cannot, make sure your RCA cables are good and hooked up correctly.

That's all you have to do, so if it's not recording I would try to take the unit back for an exchange.
