HDMI cable is the simplest solution (assuming you have HDMI ports on both the TV and DVD). Uses only one plug on each device.

Component video cable is another solution but requires more connections.

The ports are usually clearly labeled and color coded.

Once connected, power on the dvd player and the tv. Use the input selector button on the remote or the TV and select the type of input that you used to connect the two. You shouldn't need a DVD. Most players put out a signal with the brand name of the player.

Hi there,
You will need to determine if your DVD player is HDMI or Scart. If you connect it via a scart lead, then it should automatically turn on when you power it up, if not it will be located on your tv under the appropriate source/input label, ie AV1/AV2, or SCART.
If you are using a HDMI lead, then you will have to turn it over yourself, as HDMI does not support switching control. To do this, locate the input button on your remote (sometimes labled source) and press it until you can select the correct HDMI input using either the directional buttons, or by repeatedly pressing the input button.
Hope this helps

I tried to record a dvd and was unsucessful. Now the player won't work. I insert a disc and I can hear the player trying to read the disc. After three tries an error message is displayed saying:...


Hello
It seems that the Laser Pickup unit has some troouble with it. Just inser an audio CD and see whether the player reads the disc. If it reads, try with an MP3 disc. If these tow types of discs go with and not with DVD disc, make sure that the Laser Pickup Unit has the trouble. It has to be replaced with same type and number. Actually this is a very skilled work, as you have to disassemble and reassemble the DVD mechanism If you have confidence, and have all tools to do this work, you can do it by yoursef. Otherewise, get this set repaired, either by any experienced service technician, or by the Authorised Service Center for Panasonic at your town, I recomend you to get this set repaired by its authorised service center itself. OK.

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like you have no input source connected to the TV. You need an aerial or some type of pay TV service like satellite or cable. You could also try a DVD player. In each case, you have to select the proper input with the set's remote.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Those RCA jacks you are using might be the problem. Lowest Quality only means your TV is ment to handle 720 to 1080 lines- the RCA cables you are using can only handle up to 500 lines. The likely culprit is the RCA cables are low quality or bent or worn. Get new RCA cables and try again. Just be sure the plugs go all the way into the connectors and the wires are not crushed or chewed on by a pet.

My philips dvd player has stopped playing CD's and DVD's and on the display screen it shows "root". i have had this DVD player for 16months. Can you help me?? cheers


Usually "ROOT" is an indication that the player has read the DVD.

ROOT means that the DVD is in the main menu screen.

Sounds like the DVD player is ok, but you may have a loose connection somewhere.

Check all of your AV connections between the TV and DVD.

Also make sure that the TV is set to the same AV channel as the connection you are using.
E.G. if you have connected the DVD to the AV 1 socket of the TV, make sure that the TV is set to channel AV 1.

I can't say 100% but it sounds similar to the problem I had with the same model . The sleep mode in the on/off switch had gone bad and a new switch fixed the problem. It was about $42 to rtepair at my local electronics repair shop. Hope this helps.
