Question about Philips DVP3140

7 Answers

Input/output drama Ok...at home with my DVP3140 I use the red white and yellow cords. Easy. Here at my friends they have red blue and green cords which is coming from the wall not directly from their tv. I tried them in their respective color slots, as well as the red white and yellow spots, but I can't seem to find the right combo. I'm getting a no signal. Any ideas? Thank you

    Yes the other end is right and tight

  • kw8888 Jul 12, 2008

    Everything is on

  • kw8888 Jul 12, 2008

    Still nothing

  • kw8888 Jul 12, 2008

    So put them in their respective colors and then what do you change on the tv? Thank you

  • kw8888 Jul 12, 2008

    Thank you...on the dvd player the red is in the red pr, the green is in a green pr, and the blue is in a Y. The other ends are through the wall as the TV is a flat with no cords. Every input option on the TV says no signal or is a blank screen

The red and white relates to the audio pins and the yellow is the video pin...

then main thing is audio can be connected in either pins that come from the wall but only the video needs to be perfect....

so why dont you try by inserting the yellow pin in all the sockets on the wall...surely it must be the first or the last socket...middle will be audio obviously.....

if you are still not able to get the signal...then there is some disconnect between the tv and the wall socket connection...you should be checking dat once you are tried with this option..

thankyou

Hello,

Your TV will have several video source inputs and at the TV's control panel, where Brightness, Contrast, etc are found, there is also a video source selector as well, You will need to figure out which set of inputs are which video signal for your TV.

For HDTV, if your TV does not have a HDMI cable input, you want to use the component in, these are the red, blue etc.hook those up and then cycle through the video input choices on the TV's control panel until you are getting a signal from your DV player.

If you have lost the manual for your DVD player or need more help go to this page where you'll find users with the same player. There is a forum here too.

Regards,
Worldvet

Well thats cause they are different inputs, red, yellow white - rca
red blue and green = component,
you have to connect them via the component outputs on the dvd player,, you then need to enable it on the tv in the setup menu

    in the tv, ebnter setup then menu, look for video or input settings, then enable Component Video Input

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 12, 2008

    Use your Tv manual for a refrence

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 12, 2008

    WARNING do not mix up the rca red with the component red

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 12, 2008

    Then there is a problem with the cables, try changing the cables ,, you can use the rca cables as component, just ensure its color to color no matter the cable color is different

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 12, 2008

    The cables may have an error, try using a different cable, the rca cable can be substuted as a component, even the if the cable colr dont match with the jack color you can still use it just ensure the cable is in the correct jacks,, If there is an input to the frount of the tv or the side try that first.. if not you will have to mount the tv from the wall and see if the connections are correct

    hello hi



    The red (not "Pr) & white ports are for sound, you will need to connect those. Look for the matching red & white sound ports on the TV. They will be there. Keep looking. To send the picture information to the HDTV, a DVD player can either use a yellow (composite) cable or the blue, green, and red "Pr" (component) cables. (Note: the red "Pr" cable/port is different from the red sound cable/port) The blue, green, and red component cables will give you a better picture quality. I've never heard of a HDTV that didn't have a yellow video input. It's a lot easier to find if you look in the owner's manual than to get on your hands and knees with a flashlight and magnifying glass to figure out which port is which. Most DVD players, including my $30 one, have green, blue, red video outputs. If yours doesn't you might want to think about buying a new one. Getting a black & white picture probably means you mixed up the color codes on the video cables. Go back and get them to match the color codes. Perhaps you have one of the green, blue, or red video outs connected to the TV's yellow video input.

Trying to connecting my Bose lifestyle to my Samsung led smart tv to play a DVD with a yellow video cord and picture is blurry and double and has jo color? Any ideas how to fix Bose lifestyle is older...


Without the specific LifeStyle model # it's not easy to say for sure, but it sounds like you might have a composite cable plugged into a component video output of the Bose. Assuming it does not have HDMI output, it might have white/red/yellow (RCA-type jacks, aka "phono") and that yellow jack is a composite video output. It would plug into the same color jack on the TV. There are also RGB (Red/Green/Blue) component outputs on many devices and similar inputs on the TV, so you have to match like color out to same color in and make sure the TV is set to composite video input, not HDMI nor component.

Also could just be a bad cable. It's always the cheap things that we overlook, so with the same output/input setup, assuming you match type, try a different cable. The actual color of the end on the cable does not matter, but don't plug a yellow-colored output jack to a red, white, blue or green input jack on the TV - that won't work.

When playing a DVD, I get sound but not a picture. The message on the screen is no input, check input. I have checked the cables at the DVD and at the TV and both are connected correctly, i.e. red to...


Have you tried using standard RCA AV cables? yellow-red-white - to TV. Or have you tried using an S-Video cable (a 5-pin mini DIN plug) between your DVD player and TV? if your TV has S-Video input, and your player has S-Video output, a cable for this should be easy to obtain and connect. Not expensive either.

Your TV should automatically detect the connection of S-Video (if it has this feature). S-Video is better quality than standard RCA yellow AV cable. (you can leave the existing component video connected)

You can also check your DVD player 'setup' maybe it is incorrect - make sure when using component video (red-green-blue) to set the player's output to progressive (for a TV that supports it) - unless it is already set to this.

If everything in the setup menu checks out OK, go with the cheap and easy S-Video cable suggestion. Radio Shack may sell these.

Is i possible to connect a rca cable to the converter box from a dvd player and watch on the tv?


DVD players can have several outputs:
* coaxiable cable
* composite video (RED/WHITE for stereo audio, and YELLOW for video)
* component video (RED/BLUE/GREEN to video components, plus RED/WHITE for stereo audio)
* HDMI

TVs can have several inputs:
* coaxiable cable
* composite video (RED/WHITE for stereo audio, and YELLOW for video)
* component video (RED/BLUE/GREEN to video components, plus RED/WHITE for stereo audio)
* HDMI

Just use the correct tables to "match" the output to the input.

I HAVE A RCA TELEVISION, MODEL F20632. I CANNOT FIND THE MANUAL TO HELP ME SET UP MY VCR. I HAVE A 4-PLUG VIDEO CABLE (YELLOW, BLACK, GREEN AND RED). CAN YOU TELL ME WHICH CONNECTIONS ON THE TV I NEED TO...


the yellow rca input jack( not the output one ) is for video in (by itself ) and the red and white rca jack inputs are for the right and left audio that is also required when using the yellow video jack
the red and white audio jacks are also required when using the component video inputs ( BLUE , GREEN & RED ) rca jacks
but only one type of connection is required ( yellow video jack , red and white audio jacks ) or ( the blue , green and red component video jacks and the red and white audio jacks )

you will need the yellow video input and the red and white audio inputs

How do I get sounds when I use the red green blue rca hook ups?


The red, blue and green RCA hook up is just video. You must also use the red and white pair of RCA jacks for the audio. You can usually find the audio red and white jacks right below the video red, blue and green RCA jacks. Get yourself an audio RCA cord with the red and white connectors and run that from your video device audio output to the audio input of the TV that corresponds with the video input of the TV. An example would be if the red, blue and green are on the "Video 1" input of your TV you will find the red and white audio input for "Video 1" right below or right next to the video inputs.

The red, blue and green video jacks are called "component video" and they only have a video signal for high definition video, so you must also run a separate audio line for it. The same holds true for the yellow video RCA connector, that one is called "composite video" and it also has only a video signal with no audio.

I hope this helps, if so a "FixYa!" rating would be very much appreciated.

If you need more help just post your concerns right here onthis thread.

Just need to know where to plug in the red, green and blue cords


The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.
