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.

How do I hook up this DVD player to my 60 inch Westinghouse model #VR-6090Z ?


If your DVD player has HDMI, use it. If not, you'll need to buy a cord for it. Look on the back of the TV and the back of the DVD player. There should be colored connectors on each one. On the TV, it will be an input. On the DVD player, it'll be an output. There will be either 3 connectors or 5 connectors on the TV and DVD player. You'll need a cord with either 3 connectors on each end (red, white, yellow), or one with 5 (red, white, blue, green, red). Once you figure out which cord you'll need, buy it from any store that sells TVs and hook it up. The link below has pictures

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.

You need tyo select the input on your tv that matches how you have the dvd player hooked up if you are using hdmi select hdmi, if you are using the red yellow green blue and white cords these are called component video cables so look for something along those lines on your input selection screen

We're not getting any sound from the dvd's. I have two cables (green/blue/red) and (red/white). but I'm at a loss how to connect from DVD to TV. Help please!


If your TV has the green, blue, red inputs then connect these 3 cables for the picture. DVD to TV, green to green, blue to blue and red to red. If your TV only has a yellow input, then connect the green cable only from the DVD yellow to the TV yellow. Now for the sound. Connect the DVD white to the TV white. Connect the DVD red to the TV red with the red cable. The white and red inputs will be next to the yellow and the green, blue, red inputs on the TV. Next select the TV input using your TV remote. Select the input for the DVD connection.

Hook it up to the tv


If your hooking it directly to the tv depending on how old the tv is use one of the inputs. Hook the two red and white to red and white and the yellow to the video in input. If it's an older tv you will need whats called an rhf adapter. Hook your color codes together and use a cable cord to go from the antenna out to the tv's uhf input. I hope this information was helpful........... : )

DVD's not playing in color


sounds like the problem is the TV . your tv have to different inputs , COMPONENT is for the separate color , BLUE , RED , GREEN this is for better video quality , if your DVD doesnt have this OUTPUT feature , then maybe the YELLOW (VIDEO) , RED & WHITE ( AUDIO ) thats coming out from your DVD player is connected to the COMPONENT input of your TV , GETTING the B&W effect. it should be connected to the VIDEO input of your TV ( yellow , red , white ) hope this is helpful AJ

How to connect to TV


The Yellow/Red/White connectors are Composite+Audio
Yellow carries a composite signal and Red and White Carry left and right audio channels.

Red Green Blue Connectors are Component
Each coloured connector carries one 'component' of the picture

So yes, your extra set of red white yellow cables would be fine to use, just make sure you connect the same colors at each end red-red green-green blue-blue

However..... the red green blue only carry the video, you will still need to carry the Audio, this is usually done either by the red and white (L & R stereo) or your DVD may also have an optical or coaxial output to carry the sound. if there is no equivalent connector on the TV then you may be stuck swapping the red/white cables, usually though there would be 2 sets of red/white connectors one set to go with the yellow, one set to go with RGB.

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


ruettab,

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

cheers,
mark
