    check the menu of the p dvd and see if you have a choice of video modes if so try all of them with the camcorder playing a video also check the camcorder on a tv set and make sure it is transfering a output image.

Hi i have an alba tv , im trying to connect a dvd player. I have connected the scart leads etc.I can not get onto the av channel so i can watch a dvd. Please help


Hi,

Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.

If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.

Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.

Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.

Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:

1. Model number of the Bush TV
2. Brand and model number of the DVD player
3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.

I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.

Hope this helps. Happy New Year!

Regards,
BElectric

I have the TruTech LMD-5702RT Portable DVD Player. The auxilary screen has no picture when it is plugged in. It has sound, but no picture. The brightness adjustment will still take the screen from light to...


The cable that connects the two is a 4 pole cable, which means that some of the poles are used for video and others for audio (stereo left and right). My kids broke the cable within a week of having the device and I had to bend the cable back and forth to get a picture to show up. I finally ordered a new cable from here: http://www.techcables.com/6-ft-3-5mm-4-pole-mini-av-to-mini-av-camcorder-a-v-cable-p-36.html

How do you connect the portable dvd player to your big screen tv?


Look on the side of the dvd player you should see a connector that says AV Out or Video Out, you will need a wire that plugs into that which depeding on the model of dvd player can be either the Red / White/ Yellow Phono Plug Leads or a Lead which has the Red / White/ Yellow Phono Plugs and at the other end what appears to be a headphone jack connector with 3 black bands on it indicating that its a 4 Pole Video output cable, then you plug the Phono Plugs into the Phono Sockets on your tv, using your Tv remote you will need to select which input you got the dvd player plugged into this will either be called
Source Or Input Or AV 1-2-3 ect.

Can't find the parts I need


Hey, not sure if you still need it, but there's a power cord for the PDM-2727 listed in an Ebay auction. Like you, I need the AV cord, er, at least I think that's the problem. The listing also shows an AV cord available for an extra $5 but it looks generic. Might be compatible though. I don't need the power cord or I'd ask the seller, but you might want to check it out if you still haven't found power cord/AV cable yet.
