If the problem persits in all tvs then its clearly a hardware side problem in the dvd player. Service required.

Also unplug the player for a while from all wires, then set it up again. If that doesnt solve it then I beleave that its a hardware side fault.

Warranty? contact your dealer. or a local service center.

How do i program my sony dvd player dvp.sr200p to work on my philips tv


No special programming is required. Connect the DVD player to the TV using an HDMI cable. Note which input jack you used on the TV (example: HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, etc.) Turn on the DVD player and insert a DVD disc and play it. Turn on the TV and select the input you used to connect the DVD player (example: HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, etc.). You should now see and hear the DVD disc playing. Most settings are pre-set at the factory so everything will work without adjustment. However, both the DVD player and the TV have a Menu where you can adjust settings for picture, sound, etc. if desired.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

How to connect my dvd & vcr with the converter box


Here is my setup.
1) Separate DVD player 2) Separate VCR 3) Digital to Analog Converter box 4) Analog TV 5) Rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna
The antenna goes into the converter box.   The RF-output of the converter goes into the RF-Input of the VCR The DVD output goes into the front input jacks of the VCR The VCR RF-output goes into the TV RF-Input The VCR Line output goes into the front of the TV
To watch DVDs, we turn on the DVD player, turn on the VCR, and set the VCR channel to L2, and tune the TV to channel 3.  The converter is off.
To auto record on the VCR, the converter must be tuned to the station being recorded.  The converted must be turned on, the TV can be off. 
To watch VCR tapes, turn the TV and VCR on.  The TV is set to channel 3.  Just press play on the VCR.
To Watch TV.   Turn the TV and converter on.  The TV is set to channel 3.   Change the stations using the converter.

Green line on TV with DVD playing


The aspect ratio is fine, I just fixed mine you have to use the TV remote, and press the left or right directional button depending on where the green line. Philips TV offsets the picture when using HDMI, but its easily fixable using this remedy. Time to take the tape off haha!

Check the setup menu on your TV. Many models require that you choose between using the internal speakers and using the speaker outputs. Sometimes the TV menu choices are "FIXED" (audio output) or "VARIABLE" (internal speakers).

Video problem


Lines going up the screen usually indicate a synch problem. Do I understand that when you use the DVD player somewhere else it is fine? Have you tried plugging another DVD into the TV. I take for granted here you use the A/V jacks in the front or rear of your TV?

Have you ever cleaned your DVD player with a cleaning disc? The "noise" could be just that. It's also the easiest and cheapest way to maintain your player.

Another suggestion is take the cover off the DVD player and use compressed air on the insides. Dust build-up causes static electricity which can make things go out of wack. TVs shoiuld be cleaned internally as well but there's dangerous high voltage depending on what type of TV you own so I will not recommend that for the lay-man. If you do try it, unplug the TV and wait a good 3-4 hours for it to completely discharge.

I usually clean all my A/V pieces every nine months. The trick is not to let it get "dirty" in the first place so keep the area vacuumed well.

Hope this helps.

Once you have connected your dvd player to your tv and the tv is turned on. Turn on the machine and press "disc" on the remote control. Open/Eject the disc tray. Press STOP on the remote control. Enter the following numbers slowly on the remote control " 7,3,4,4,6,6,0". Configuration will appear on the bottom left hand side of the TV for three seconds. Press "PLAY" to close the tray. The DVD player eill return to normal operation. This SHOULD make the player Region free.

Picture rolling when I play DVDs


I used to have that same problem with my system. Fortunately for me, I still had the instruction booklets at the time so that helped me to figure it out. step 1: make sure there is no dvd in the dvd player before you start fixing the problem. Step 2: Press the "setup" button on the remote. Step 3: Once you have removed the dvd from the dvd player it should allow you to go to "preferences" in the setup menu. So do that. Step 4: Go to "TV TYPE" and make sure it's on NTSC. And then exit setup by pressing the setup button once again. And it should work. That's how it worked with my system at least. It seemed to switch the tv type by itself from NTSC to PAL which must be a flaw in the system. I thought I was the only one with that problem. Well, I hope that helped you at all. Have a good day.
