The SSB may need to be replaced.
This may be the cause of the tv shutting off and may be a factory defect.

The flashing light should be a repeating count. Please post that count. Also, are the DVD and TV plugged into the same outlet or circuit? What you are seeing is a grounding problem. At this point it is unclear whether the problem is with the DVD or the TV. If you have a voltmeter, set it to AC and check for any voltage on the video cable from the DVD player. Check also for DC voltage. Measure between the center RCA pin and the outside shield. This should be 0 or DC and will vary slightly from 0 depending upon what is playing on the DVD and how quick your AC meter is in reading the voltages.
Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Unplug the power cord, but leave it unplugged for 4 hours. This is called a hard reset.

If the hard reset does not alleviate the problem then the protection circuit has been activated. This is caused when one of the many sections of the tv develops a short circuit and is detected by the protection circuit which in turn shuts the set off to avoid further damage to the set which in your case is from the Dvd connection.

You will need to call in a service tech or test the various sections and find the actual shorted circuit.

The cause can be any of many possibilities. But it is almost always over $200 to get it repaired.

Since it is a nice set, you should definitely invest in fixing it whether you do it yourself or not depends on your expertise with tvs. If you still have the extended warranty it should be covered free of charge.

Let me know if you have further questions and I would be glad to help you.

Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck on fixing this.

How to get dvd on tv


There are generally 2 ways to connect a dvd player to a tv.1 If you have 3 rca connectors on the back of your tv (they are color coded yellow for video and white and red for audio left and right channels respectively) and the same connectors on the back or side of the dvd player.Use rca cables to connect the dvd player to the tv,connecting yellow to yellow white to white and red to red.Using the remote put your tv on video.Put the channel selector on the dvd/vcr player on video or L1 or E1 (depending on what brand dvd/vcr you have).2 connect a rf (coaxial cable from the rf output of the dvd/vcr and connect this directly to the rf (antenna) input to your tv.Put the tv on channel 3.Play the dvd/vcr to see if you have the video.If not put the tv on channel 4.Some dvd/vcr's put their signals out on channel 3 and others on channel 4.Good luck.

I just need a diagram to show me how to hook the dvd/vcr up to my television. I have Dishnetwork as well. I un-hooked and now I can't get a picture.


Not knowing the model of the TV its hard to tell you how to hook it up. Howeever let's assume that yu TV has an auido in and a composite video input. it it does is should have three RCA jacks on the back...one red, one white and one yellow.

Assuming Dishnetwork is being used as a analog video.

Connect the VCR/DVD player via a patch cable ( usually has three cable all color coded, red, white & yellow) Red and White section is used for the audio Left and Right. The yellow cable is video.

Connect the audio out of the VCR/DVD player to the audio input on the TV. Do the same with the videoout of the VCR/DVD to the TV may be marked "Composite Video". Now connect your Dish Network receiver RF Out to the TV. This should be a coaxal cable.

Now when you want VRC/DVD use your remote and select input. Some older TV's have the aux input just before Ch 2. Some remotes have an input button.

once you have aux inpsut selected turn on the dvd and play your movie to view Dish go to Ch 3 or 4 depending on how your TV and system is set up.

Again not knowing the model TV you have, this is a general hook up.

Thank you Let us know if it helps

Your TV must be equipped with AV inputs (RCA jacks - yellow, white, red)
in order to connect this unit. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you will need a RF Modulator to connect the DVD recorder to your TV's
antenna/cable input. RF Modulators are available at
major electronics retailers such as Radio Shack or Wal-Mart and allow the 3 RCA outs from the recorder to connect to the RF modulator RCA inputs and then you can connect a coaxial cable from the modulator to the TV RF input and select channel 3 or 4 on the TV. The DVD recorder will not pass thru signals to the TV using coaxial cable as far as DVD are concerned.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


    It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

    1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
    If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
    That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

    2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
    If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
    To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

    3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
    If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
    Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
    Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
    (I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

    I need playback channel for tv to be ch.4 -


    Solution 1

    How to set the DVD Recorder+VCR’s RF output channel
    Turn off the DVD Recorder+VCR, then press and hold
    CH (v/V) on the front panel for about five
    seconds to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or
    CH 04). “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on the front panel display.

    Solution 2

    Cable Service With Cable Box
    If a cable box is required in your cable system, follow the
    instructions shown below. This hookup permits both TV and
    DVD Recorder+VCR operation.
    To view or record a CATV channel:
    1 Tune the TV to the correct video input channel.
    2 Set the DVD Recorder+VCR to the output channel of the
    cable box using the CH (v / V) or the 0-9 keys on your DVD
    Recorder+VCR (e.g., CH3).
    3 Select the channel you wish to view on the cable box.

    Plays on wrong channel


    ok i downloaded and read your DVR-1000 manual , this is what you will do .

    While the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (up/down) button on the front panel for about five seconds.

    The unit will turn itself on and “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on
    the front panel display

    Use CH ( up / down ) button on the front panel or CH ( up / down ) button on the remote control to change the RF output
    channel (CH 03 or CH 04).

    Turn the DVD+VCR off and then on

    Set the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on the RF
    output channel you selected.
    Now you can watch the DVD+VCR playback on CH3
    or CH4 of your TV

    PS , you should see a child lock button on the remote , if you press that button , you will disable front panel button controls so kids can't change anything , press it again to unlock that feature , it might come in handy.

    Connecting older model quasar to dvd/vcr player (magnavox)


    Hi and welcome to FixYa,

    Initially, the only reason you would need/use a modulator is when the DVD/VCR has no RF OUT and the Quasar TV has no Audio/Video IN. If this were the case, then connections would be:
    • yellow Video Out of DVD/VCD to yellow Video IN of modulator;
    • red/white Audio Out of DVD/VCR to red/white Audio In of modulator;
    efa3894.jpg
    • modulator RF Out to RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar;
    • TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4;
    • if Modulator has no RF OUT but instead has a small antenna, still the TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4.
    If however, the DVD/VCR has an RF OUT, then a coaxial patch cord from this could be connected to the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar. The TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4. There would be no need for the modulator.

    Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    DVD input with signal access


    IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

    IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

    THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!
