Hello, The Pb Pr and V cables are just video (component video)

you will also need to run the red and white (composite/ RCA Audio) cables as well

So a total of 5 cables running to the tv

Only get black and white picture using vcr/dvd why picture


Hi There,

The most likely reason for this is that your connections between the DVD player are incorrect. This usually happens when a Composite cable is connected to one the Component input sockets on the back of the TV.

If you are are using a composite cable (red, white, yellow plugs), please make sure the yellow plug is not connected to a socket labelled Y, Pb/Cb, or Pr/Cr on the back of the TV or the DVD/VCR. The yellow plug needs to be connected to a VIDEO OUT socket on the back of the DVD/VCR and a VIDEO IN socket on the back of the TV.

Do not use sockets labelled Y, Pb/Cb, or Pr/Cr on either of them.

If you are unable to determine which sockets to use, please let me know the brand and model number of your VCR/DVD and confirm the model number of your TV is GV42L. I will then be able to draw you a diagram showing the correct connections to use.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Dvd player only plays in b&w, and connectors dont seem to match up with tv


Go into the player's setup menu and make sure it's set for the kind of connection you're actually using (component, S-video, composite). Also make sure the connections are pushed "all-the-way-in" Lose connections can cause B&W picture.

Which dvd connection go to which TV connection.On the dvd I have component(white), video(red),audio(orange), y(green),Pb(blue) and Pr(red)


Connect yellow video from DVD to TV. Connect white audio and red audio from DVD to TV. These will be next to yellow jack. That is all the connections you need for picture and sound. Use RCA cables available at Radio Shack or Wal Mart.

How to connect a dvd player to lcd tv


Your DVD player's output is Composite Video (the yellow connector) plus stereo audio (the red and white connectors, for right and left audio)

The inputs on your TV are for Component Video, which splits the video signal into three cables (Y for brightness, Pb and Pr for blue and red, respectively)

Check your TV to see if it has a composite input (single yellow connector, labeled "video" or "composite")

And be sure to let me know if this helps!

Monster Component Cable labled Y/Cb/CR to TV that has Input Y/Pb/Pr


Y PB PR is the analog version of the Y CB CR color space; the two are numerically equivalent, but Y PB PR is designed for use in analog systems whereas Y CB CR is intended for digital video.

When I connect my dvd player to my new lcd flat panel tv using component cables (pr, pb & y) all I get is my picture in red


Defective cabling or bad processor preamp on LCD unit. Could also be a bad buffer/driver on the DVD outputs as this feature is not used on composite hookups...accordianman

Progressive scan


Approach 1: Try unplugging the DVD player from the wall for an hour, then plug it back in. It may or may not reset to the factory default settings, which might put it back to "interlaced" output.

Approach 2: When a DVD player is switched to progressive scan, it uses outputs different from the coax cable "TV out" and the COMPOSITE outputs (often yellow, white and red RCA jacks. If you have the proper cables, you can connect them to both the DVD player and the TV, then cycle through the AKAI TV's "source" settings to switch the TV to the new cable input location.

For example, if the DVD player has "component" outputs (marked Y, Pb, and Pr) hook up RCA plug cables between those jacks and the AKAI TV's Y, Pb, and Pr jacks. Connect the Y to Y, the Pb to Pb, and the Pr to Pr, of course. The LCT3285TA has two sets of these jacks. Either will do, but note if you use YPbPr1 or YPbPr2. Once this is done, push the source button on the side of the TV (or on the TV's original remote) until it shows YPbPr1 or (...2 if that's what you connected). If the DVD player is on, you should now see the DVD menu or the picture from the DVD. Now you can use the DVD remote to switch back from progressive to interlaced video. The picture may go blank at this step.

Now push the TV's source button again until you see "3" or whatever channel you had been using in the upper left of the TV screen. You should see the DVD output picture (menu) again. Back to normal.

If your DVD player doesn't have YPbPr connections, it may have a HDMI or DVI jack.
The AKAI TV also has a HDMI input, you *could* get and HDMI cable (or DVI to HDMI cable if the DVD player doesn't have HDMI), hook it up, then cycle through the TV's source inputs until you see the HDMI in the upper left... in the manner I've just described.

Final Note: The progressive scan output of your DVD will actually give you a much better picture on your AKAI TV than its interlaced output. To take advantage of that, you'll have to hook up YPbPr or HDMI cables between player and TV and switch sources when you want to watch DVDs instead of TV programs. You may need additional cables to send the stereo audio output from the player to the TV for the progressive source hookup.

Dell w3000 & PS3


This may not be DVI issue.
I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.

Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.
