"32" rca tv about 3 years old was on & it went black- power light is on"


sounds like the sceen is dead, if you are receiving nothing on screen, then it sounds like either a component and/or screen is gone... however, check the tv input to make sure it wasnt acidentally switched to an input channel with nothing selected... if that does not work, call local tv repair or mfg customer service tech. if under warranty, have repaired or replaced. without physically seeing tv, it is hard to diagnose issue outside of information given. could be simple board replacement or could be screen.. but check input first, if a dvd player plays, then it could be just component or input on wrong selection

How do we connect a DVD reader and make it function normally ?


You have to connect the DVD player using the RCA video and audio cables that came with the player, they are three wires with yello, red and black connectors on either end. Connect the yello( video) cable to the yellow connctor on the DVD player and the other end to the yellow connector on the back ro the front of the TV, do the same for the others fro sound. Then turn the DVD palyer and TV on and select the correct input on the TV using the remote, they will be Line 1 or Line 2 depending on your connection. you can get to these either through the channels button or TV/Video buttons.

I have a Sony Trinaton XBR about 6 years old. Works great. Have Comcast cable and they recently installed a new cable box. Now I get all cable channels on "Video 6 - DVD" rather than "Video 7 -Cable Box"....


Hi,
I was awaiting your response in chat session but could not get any thing.
Please hook cable box in Video input-7 instead of Video input-6 in TV and select Video input-7 with remote on TV.
Regarding continues on-screen display of video-6, press Display button on TV remote once, on-screen display will disappear.
Thanks.

DVD player won't work on my 27gt615


alexa,

good day, if youre saying that you program the DVD to work on channel 2 or 4 does it mean you convert the signal of your dvd player from A/V output to RF out?

because the simpliest way to connect your DVD player to TV screen is by using RCA cable ( 3 wired cable being color marked as yellow/red/white) yellow = video red and white = audio

the connection would be: from dvd back part you'll see colored socket yello/red and white. connect the RCA to those socket following the same color .

and from the TV screen there should be A/V input socket. can be locate at the BACK/Side or FRONT of the screen marked as
"INPUT" ( AV1, AV2,AV3 if multiple inputs). Then select which input you want to place your DVD player ex.AV1 (from AV1 there will be 3 scoket in a row, yellow/red/white)

Connect the other end of your RCA cable following the same color code to TV "AV1 INPUT" yellow = yello/red =red/white=white. then from the remote commander of your TV screen locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "A/V" press this button until the screen display switch to AV1.

cheers,
mark

Is there an input select?


I can view channels but cannot view a DVD from the TV/DVD Disney Princess Combo. Only see static on the screen with no sound. I wonder if I need to change the input select to view a movie but cannot find a button on the TV or remote control. I have a 6 button remote which I am sure operates the DVD and another remote with 39 buttons I thought would operate the player as well as the TV. However, so far only the player functions from it. The buttons only have small pictures without words which sometimes leaves some question about purpose. This is a second hand unit. I do not have a manual. It did play movies at first. I think the trouble may have started when I programed cable channels. Any help will be greatly appreciated

Does not recognize cable channels


All you have to do is connect those yellow red and white cables to one of your tv inputs in the back either video 1 2 or 3 and you should have both your dvd player and cable working. Make sure your black cable is connected through coaxial in the back of your tv and the yellow white and red cables from the dvd player to video 1 in the back of your tv if anything else just let me know...

No picture


If possible, verify that the DVD player has a good output on a separate TV. If the DVD is still bad, check the output setting on the DVD player to ensure you're not set to progressive scan. If it is in fact the TV, try a different input. If it is still bad you have a video processing issue that may require a repair facility.

Channel jumping


Sounds like the PIP feature is causing the problem with the TV if you are connected directly to cable TV without a box inline and getting these issues.

TV picture flickers


If your DVD player is separate from your tv, you might have a loose cable plug or connection. Depending on the type of flicker you have, a vertical circuit loose connection would cause this. If you could connect it to a cable or antenna it might tell you where the problem is located. A faulty circuit in the DVD might cause this too. Stargazer
