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.

MY dstv DSDD 1132 decoder is flashing red and green lights but yellow light is steady. tv is black and remote not responding


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!

I have a Phillips tv. How in the heck do I hook up my coleco vision flashback to it. This is back


Maybe go to RadioShack and bring the cables you need to hook up. Probably an adapter that will hook it to the A/V jacks, the red/yellow/white jacks similar used on video cameras and VHS players.

If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types
