SOURCE: VCR will not turn on.

Remove top cover of the VCR. Then look near the back where the plug-in and power supply is. There should be a little glass fuse. You should keep that fuse and take it to the store and replace it with same exact one. If your VCR can be self-repaired, than this is the only thing you can try.

SOURCE: We have a philips up-grader dvd player and get color distortion

I would try hooking something else up to your tv that is hdmi compatible. If your tv looks fine, then you know it would be the dvd player. If it's the dvd player, then I would suggest getting a different brand completely. I have had alot of bad experiences myself and other people as well when it comes to the philips brand

Change the video resolution format from HDMI set up menu. This way you can know that if Player and TV supports/displays any one or some of the resolutions and if you can get a video on TV.

SOURCE: We have a Philips Magnavox

It sounds like you have a standard problem.
Is the TV you are using, that gives the black and white picture, the same as the other ie, both NTSC or PAL and both on RGB or Y-C or S-Video?
Check to see what is required and set the DVD player accordingly.
Hope that helps.

Why won't either of two TVs turn on?


Try unplugging them and holding the power button down for 20 seconds or a minute or something. Then plug them back in and turn them on. It might work. Otherwise, are they under warranty?

is it possible that you just need to adjust the TV to the proper channel? some DVD players default to ch3 others to ch4and if your using the av jacks make sure you haven't actually either plugged them into the input jack on the DVD player or with the new flat panel TV's you probably have a large number of input choices it is possible that you may have misplaced the inputs to ones that are close but are really meant for something else...

I am trying to hook up my dvd player to my dvd recorder can any one hellp me


The easyest way is to use a RCA cable (the red, white and yellow) on the DVD player you should have only one set (red,white and yellow) plug that cable into the input to your DVD Recorder IN plug another cable to the OUT on the Recorder to your TVs, RCA inputs(if you have front A/V jacks on your tv that would be a great place to start, rear is fine) Now turn on your TV to it's A/V channel.( maybe video 1 etc..) Turn on your DVD Player and put in a pre-recorded disc in the DVD Player, Turn on your Recorder find the A/V channel for that Maybe Video1 or 2.

Hope This Helps

Cannot see the screen Philips DVP5990 DVD player. Setting problem


You may have probably turned on Closed Caption on your TV. Unhook the DVD player to find out if it disappears. If it disappears then Closed Caption is on on your TV. Turn off Closed Caption. If cannot find how, give me the brand and model of your TV.

Hdmi port


Philips has a complex HDCP key on its HDMI ports that makes it a bit "glitchy" when compared to other manufacturers. Usually the problem can be fixed by swapping the ends of the HDMI cable - the end that is plugged into the TV should be plugged into the Philips, and then end that is currently plugged into the Philips should be plugged into the TV. This is called "hotswapping," and will turn off a specific HDCP setting that is interfering with the functions.

Also, perhaps first even, make sure the Philips source is set to HDMI - press the HDMI button on the Philips remote.

Good luck!
