    I've unplugged the dvd and put it back in.

    Turn it on an off for about 10 to 15 sec.

    Clean the disc off and insert back in.

    I am using an RCA DRC285 HDMI
    When I turn it on it says hello, and begins to read the disc. Sometimes the disc will even begin to play, but within the first five minutes (at the longest) the video shuts off, and the dvd player says 'root.' Once this happens nothing will work on the dvd player, including the power button, so I have to unplug it.

    How is the DVD connected to the TV?




    • Scart

    • Composite video - yellow phono connector (RCA)

    • Component video - red / green / blue phono connectors (RCA)

    • S-Video - 4 pin mini DIN

    Also do you have a secondary audio connection - red / white phono (RCA)?

LCD TV connection to DVD-VCR


OK here is a possible solution: 1) The best solution: Connect the antenna to your DVD-VCR through the RF Input and the the RF Out to your TV This take care of the VCR part. Then you get an RCA three way cable (Video-yellow marked, Right Audio-Red marked, Left Audio-white marked)connect the yellow marked RCA cord to the Video out of your DVD player then connect the other end to your video in of your TV. Ater that connect the red marked audio cable to the R Audio out of your DVD player to the R Audio in of your TV do the same for the white marked Audio cable. You will now be able to switch from VCR-RF to DVD-RCA.

I just moved, and hooked up the cable,, dvr successfully, and my dvd/video player in. I get a picture with my dvd;s, BUT no sound. two people have told me all the wires are connected properly and i...


To identify where the problem is you will have to do some tests: first just replace the wires/the data cable. Then plug something else in those cables - instead of the player: if the problem remains you will know that the defect is in the tv, if not - it's in the player.
If it's in the tv the first thing you should check is if the sound isn't muted on that AV input - some tv's allow that. Then you must check the connectors themselves: put the volume at maximum and touch the inside part with your hand (you will probably need a small fine screwdriver for that) - if the connectors themselves or the AV switching circuits are ok a very loud white noise will be heard.
If you don't hear it then there is a faulty part and the only way to find it out is to open the tv and test the components using very special equipment - a job for a pro.

UMC 19in TV with built-in DVD player - model L19/7TCD


Try connecting earphones or headphones to the 3.5mm Headphone socket on the TV and check this works correctly, i.e hear TV when watching TV, hear DVD when watching a DVD etc.
If all is OK, purchase a 3.5mm Jack to L/R Audio/Phono cable. Connect the 3.5mm jack in to the headphone socket on the TV and connect the red/white phone ends to the 5.1 surround system.
It should solve it. SCART out is not always live in all sources so is not a reliable way to connect.

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System


Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.
