    The picture flops when you turn it on the curtis logo moves top to bottom. Same problem with a dvd in, I tried several dvd's, all these dvd's work on other players. This is a cheap player but you should be able to use it more than once.

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.

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


Things You'll Need:

* Component cables

Instructions


Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

Tips & Warnings

You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

Panasonic SC-HT730 Green picture when showing DVD's


The DVD player of this system will output to a TV on either composite (Yellow jack), component (RGB jacks) and S-Video (a small round jack that looks like a mouse or keyboard connector) jack. Since the tint is off, I would guess that you're using the more desirable component or even the S-video jack. Try removing & re-seating the plugs into the jacks at the DVD and at the TV; then check the picture color. If it still is wrong, try using a different cable type - use a standard video cable between the yellow jacks on both the TV and DVD. You may need to set the TV input to reflect the use of the new jack - and possibly set the DVD to 480i or Interlaced if you used the Progressive Scan or 480P output when using component RGB video cables (Red, Green & Blue). Check for correct color.

Chances are the connection got dirty and caused the color issue - or less likely, the cable or even less likely - the DVD output has failed.

Good luck!

Same- get audit, no picture. HELP!!


It has to be something wrong with either the connection from the DVD video cable (yellow if your using composite av cables... green, blue and red if your using HDMI cables, or black with a round connector with little pins inside if using S-video), check on both the back of the DVD player where the cable comes out, and also on the back of either the TV or the receiver unit where the Video cable connects. If your cable goes from DVD --> Receiver --> TV, check both cables inbetween to ensure that they are tightly connected. Turn on your system as if your trying to watch a DVD, and when you hear the sound, wiggle the cables and see if you get a picture (having someone else wiggle and you watch or vice versa will be the easiest). If nothing comes up, then perhaps a cable is bad. Try replacing the cables with new ones, try the system now. If the cables didnt solve the problem, again, repeat the process of starting the DVD and then wiggling the cables. If still no picture, it might be internal issues with the connectors themselves. If your handy, you can try to take apart the devices and trouble shoot... but I would suggest calling Bose (or the companies that make your TV and DVD players) and see what steps they suggest you take.

Good luck!

Losing picture while watching dvd


your in luck , I just had the same exact issue and it was driving me crazy! and here is the solution ,check the hdmi cable sometimes the bend in the cable is enough to make theese highly sensitive cables cut their signal where the picture goes out but the sound is still on , i have a entertainment cabinet that houses the stereo/lazer disc player/blue ray player / and power amplifiers , well this cable along with other hdmi cables was a cheaper guage wire ,so i replaced it with a guage wire hdmi and never had the problem again , if you take your hdmi cable and just sort of press up against it and move the wire with your hand ,you will probably see your picture cut out , the conector pins that the hdmi cable plug into are like little needles and they are extreemly sensitive to movement and especially the cheaper cables , if you have a better hdmi cable just switch them and you will see what i mean , Another way to test it is to just use component cables and see if your picture cuts out , if it dose,nt then you will know for shure its the hdmi cable , Hope i was able to help you fix your problem , if i was of help please leave a nice rating for me , sincerely glenn mayer and good luck!

My dvd player (Sony dav s500 system) kept freezing and now always says"disc is dirty" and wont play. Can I connect another dvd player to the system? How would I connect the 6 speaker cables into the new...


Umm, this isn't just a DVD player, It.s an amplifyer too. Just leave the speaker cables alone, plug in the new dvd player into the "video2" jack, yellow cable onlt. Then,plug the audio cables into the video2 jacs (the red and white ones). Select "video2" on the SonyDAVS300 and "video2" on the tv. Insert the dvd into the new player and enjoy. It's screwy but it works through the amp and sends the picture to the tv.
