Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have been using the is TV to only play DVDs via the scart connection but the picture has suddenly started erratic jumping rendering it impossible to see the picture. In the old days there used to be a Horizontal, Vertical and Sideways control knobs on the exterior to correct this but I suspect these functions have now been put onto the circuit board inside. On this model there is a vertical board plugged in the motherbaord with 4 wires connecting it to the circuit board attached to the rear of the cathode ray tube. There are 2 metal pots on this board. Are these the adjustable pots i need to adjust?

    Thanks for the reply. The TV is a Panasonic Model TC-2185RE. The DVD player is a Terratec Model DVD5.1.

Hi,
I seems you are talking about CRT based tv and controls are Focus and Screen volts that are not related to correct jumping picture.
I do not see model number and brand info of your tv in question so not sure is it PAL or NTSC tv and if dvd player video output color system changed from its setting menu, tv will start showing jumping picture if tv does not have that color system capability.
Let me know model number and brand of TV and dvd player to sort out problem OR try another dvd player on this tv/ or try dvd player on another tv to narrow down problem.
Thanks.

    Do you get colors in jumping picture?
    If not, check color system of tv and change it to get stable picture.

    Its OK, I got the idea about PAL system when I saw Scart Connection in question.
    As you confirmed colors appear in picture that indicates problem in tv and most probably capacitors in vertical deflection section got dried up/ devalued and need to be replaced.
    Capacitors replacement requires soldering work with proper tools so if you are not familiar with soldering parts in circuit board then local tv repair shop will do that for you.
    Thanks.

Connected to video recorder via scart and good picture but no sound. also sound on dvds very low and not really responding to vol control


I often lose sound but retain video after playing about with things in the back, it always turns out to be a loose scart. Try pushing it in andd, if that does not work, substituting it with a different one.
If you are playing through the VCR because you only have on scart socket on your tv you can always get a multi scart adaptor from radioshack / argos / maplin etc

How do I connect to tv there is nothing on the screen from the DVDs player


It depends on your connections for one thing. I did find this piece of information on the DVD player:
"One thing they do not state (in the manual) is that if you are playing it through your Scart socket to your TV. Your TV's Scart socket must be PAL60 compliant".

If they both have HDMI sockets I would get a HDMI cable and connect via that. You will also get a better picture than a scart.

If you are using a scart the connector can also become faulty either inside or a faulty pin so check that too.

Toshiba sd-v295 tunerless DVD VCR Combo To Sony Digital TV Instructions


It will depend on if the Toshiba has an HDMI socket. If it has then the Sony TV will almost certanily have one. Then all you need do is get a HDMI lead and connect the two. The only other way would be via a SCART lead. If the TV has only one SCART and it's being used you can get a SCART Switching Box from places such as Amazon, where you will also get the other cables.

Ghosting of picture from a Panasonic home cinema system


There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-

1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.

2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV

3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.

Cant see dvds on my emerson tv


Hello.

In many cases by connecting the DVD via a scart cable (depending in what country you live in if your system supports it)
the dvd will send a signal to the TV to switch over to RGB mode when you start playing the dvd. Rember to make sure the scart connectors are firmly pressed into their sockets on both tv and dvd.

Also if you found out how to switch channels directly on the TV try to go through them ...you might find the AV channel that will show the picture from your dvd.

Hope this will help you.

Good Luck.

How can i watch dvds on this old sanyo tv?


does your tv have a scart socket or is it pre scart, if it does, and you connect the dvd player via the scart then the tv should auromativally switch to av when the dvd player is switched on. failing that, if you have no scart, then the only way you can watch dvd is by connecting a flylead from dvd player to tv, (take out antenna and put it in that socket) and then start a search if you can, normally the buttons for this are behind a flap somewhere on the tv. if you have no scart or a way of tuning tv, then i dont think you can watch dvd through that tv

DVD playback no playback


Sounds like the scart lead is not in straight. Scart connectors have the audio pins at one end, and the video pins at the other. If the lead isn't in straight then you often get sound and no picture and vice versa.

Check the connection by pushing the scart lead in securely. (Both DVD and TV end of the lead)

Failing that could be a dodgy lead.
