Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Open Question

No Color My parents recently bought a Sanyo DP37647 LCD HDTV. When they hooked up their DVD/VCR, there was no color when playing dvds or tapes.The player worked fine before the change of televisions. The previous tv was older. I don't have a clue as to the age of this dvd player. I assume there is a compatiability problem between the TV and the dvd player but I would hate for them to buy a new dvd player only to find the same problem!

Hi Your problem is Copy protection on your DVD's! Without going into techno-bable, your DVD player detects that you are connected to a VCR, (You have no choice in your case as it is built-in), there are methods such as "Copyguard" and "Macrovision" that try to stop you from copying your favorite DVD onto VHS. The audio is left alone, but the video will go bright and dim, and the colors will be messed up, making the result un-watchable. You will find that the cheap DVD's you get for a couple of bucks at the discount store will play fine, as it would be too expensive to protect them. There are "little black boxes" available as "video stabilizers" that will cure this problem, (but you didn't hear that from me!),otherwise you must connect into a t.v. without a built-in VCR. P.S. Make sure the t.v. you switch to has RCA type A/V inputs on it, as you will have to purchase a separate RF modulator otherwise. Good Luck!

SOURCE: new dvd/vhs player but old tv

The easiest thing to do would be get a new TV plain and simple sounds as if you could use one n e ways. But first make sure you are hooked up through coaxal to the tv that will allow everything to run on channel 3. Let me know your current hookup.

SOURCE: Can't get picture on TV.

If you were using RCA cables, you may have had them hooked up wrong. I know this may sound like an easy fix, but I still hook them up wrong from time to time. Especially if there are more than one set of RCA hook-ups on the back of the unit. If you were using a S-video cable you shouldn't have to use RCA cables, if you had both hooked up that could cause your DVD/VCR unit to not work properly and only get a partial feed to the TV. I hope this helps a little. Good luck.

Check your DVD player's color system, most multi system dvd player has to be set(PAL or NTSC) manually, NTSC for American standard. Look for this button could be a mechanical switch at the back or at the menu. Some machine need to reboot after setting. Hope this helps

Transfer VHS recording to DVD . I have recordings on VHS tapes and would like to transfer them to DVD discs.


Try hooking up an external DVD player to the unit. Remember, the jacks are color coded and never connect an OUT to an IN or vice versa. Your unit might have a special channel in which you can watch DVDs with the VCR part left on, try recording from this too. Good luck to you!

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
