    My equipment is less than 1month old . The manual recommended you for assistance, but you want to charge me. Perhaps Id do better complaing directly to Philips Eindhoven , or returning thier equipment and getting some other make.

1) The 4:3 / 16:9 option only optimises playback for that particular type of TV. The 4:3 setting also allows you to set the output between:

  • 4:3 PS - expands the picture vertically and horizontally which gets rid of the black bars, but you also lose the left and right edges of the picture.
  • 4:3 LB - Letterbox format, displays the full picture from the disc, with black bars top and bottom.
The PS option loses the bars on 16:9 widescreen DVDs, but may still leave bars on true cinema widescreen DVDs, which are 21.7:9
This is normal.
  • 16:9 - Optimises the picture for a widescreen TV. Again True cinema widescreen DVDs will still have black bars.
2) All of the external inputs will show "No signal" until there is actually a signal playing into them.
EG to copy VHS to DVD, you will need to select the relevant scart or phono input, and press play before the recorder will register a signal and allow recording.
Some bought VHS videos have copy protection, and may cause problems when copying to DVD.

3) Greenish playback maybe caused by colour setting on TV being too high. Also check Hue or Tint settings on the TV, if it has them.

4) For some reason, in their infinite wisdom, Philips omitted the Video Plus facility from this model.

I need to copy,from a video camcorder to dvd,how can I do this.


Depending on what connections you have on your camcorder.
You can use a IEEE 1394 LEAD,or if your camcorder has only Phono connections then you can use those.
There will be the sockets,normally under a flap on the front of the DVD,the phono connections are normally marked AV3.
Hope this helps.

I can record a show manualy while its on & all is fine. When I try to schedule a recrding it records but I get a blank screen upon playback. What am I doing wrong? I have directv.


Unless the tv and dvdr are paired I.E. both the same make and compatible models, then you will have problems. try setting the timer on the dvdr for a programme but set the channel to av(scart connecter used) and set the timer on the tv to the same.
Please note that AV2 on the tv usually sends the programme to the dvdr.

Connecting the DVD-v9800 vcr to the T260HD tv monitor


Does it have a scart socket. If it does you can get a scart cable with a scart on one end and phono plugs etc or the other.

Connecting the dvd player via a scart cable


If you select component in on the tv, this should give you a picture,using the current set up. As for audio, depending on the tv, have you used audio in on the tv, or audio out?
It sound obvious but I (even after 5 years+ of installing tv/vcr/dvd) still get caught out with input and out put.
I am unfamiliar with Sansui dvd, if it has a scart connection on the back then yes you can connect to a spare scart on the tv. If it has the single yellow phono for video and the red/white phonos for sound, you can buy a scart to phono lead and use that, not to confuse with the component(blue/green/purple) connections. You cuold also connect the yellow/red/white phono to the same on the tv front/side or rear if available.

I have a Philips DVD player/Recorder which is attached to a Samsung Television and cassette recorder I get a very good picture but no sound. The Phillips recorder is a DVDR 3480


IF it is connected via a scart lead, make sure that the connectors at both ends are pushed in securely to the DVD and TV.

Scart connectors have 21 pins, and the audio pins are at the opposite end to the video pins, so if the connector isn't in straight, you either get sound & no picture or vice versa.

If this isn't the case, give more details on the connection.
