    No sound. Just snow.

  • J-Lady Jun 25, 2008

    Still nothing but snow and now I can see a faint Sanyo insignia.

  • J-Lady Jun 25, 2008

    Tried other set of coaxial wires- same result.

  • J-Lady Jun 26, 2008

    Not coaxial, I guess. Made sure it was hooked up color coded and same result-- same snowy faint Sanyo image. No sound or picture. TV working fine.

  • J-Lady Jul 07, 2008

    Tried another TV with same result.

  • J-Lady Jul 09, 2008

    can't be cable problem because my other small TV has built in Dvd/Vhs and it works fine.

Do you have it plugged in with the coaxial cable or do you have it plugged in with the yellow,red,and white cables? If you arent using the coaxial cable and are using the red,yellow, and white cables make sure they match the color of the ports on the TV and DVD player. So you will want red to go to red, white to go to white, and yellow to go to yellow at both the DVD player and the TV. Also make sure you have the cables connected at the terminals labeled OUT. Same if you are using the coaxial cable. Good luck and keep me posted. Let me know if you have anymore questions. If you found this helpful please rate this solution when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101

    Make sure you select the TV input instead of channel 3 or 4 because since it is not coaxial cable it will not work on channel 3 or 4. Try pressing the TV/Video or TV/Input button on the TV. Let me know if this works. Thanks - Tech101

  • plug in a different tv to see if there is a different result
  • plug cable directly into tv to make sure it works (skip dvd)
  • If nothing works after that call the local cable service provider.

The video cable (coaxial) should go into the dvd player and another one out from the dvd player to the tv. Remote set to dvd player. Instead of channels 3 and 4 look for video 1, video 2, aux or something similar.

Trying to hook up an emerson dvd player to tv and its not working? older tv it has no cable hook up or control box for channel set up, shouldnt the dvd player still be able to work though?


IM GUESSING THIS MIGHT BE AN RCA TELEVISION? if you dont have an rca in hook up on the tv give up and buy a new tv or you can find an older item what it is is a switch that has an rca input and a coax output it was used to hook up the older video game systems it is still sold in most stores and that will work if you do have rca inputs and lost the remote you need to get a universal remote to switch the input on certain older rca tv's you could go to channel 00 and it would set it to the input with the switch you shoudl be able to use it by putting the tv on channel 3

if you are useing a cabel box you need to split your cable before the cable box with a two set coupler and run the second cable line to the VCR input and this should solve your problem. if you want to record the chanels from your cable box and not watch a diffrent chanel you can leave it hooked as is and select the chanel you want to record with your cable box tunner and leave it turned on, set the vcr to record channel 3 or 4 which ever is the channel you leave your tv tunner on and record that way.

Hook-up


Go to the Sylvania/Emerson web site and you can download the entire manual for free. If you hooked it up and it doesn't work right, make sure you have the TV on the correct channel. Either ch 3 or 4. the other problem might be you hooked it up with component or composite cables and are not setting your TV on AV. Audio/Video channel.
