Question about GPX D1816 DVD Player

1 Answer

"snowy" picture We purchased a new gpxd1816 dvd player, and the picture is snowy in quality. We connected it the same way we did with our old dvd player, and the tv is fairly new. also, a separate playstation picture is fine. Is this a problem with the set up or do we need to replace the player?

I have the same dvd player and the cables are pretty cheesy so if you could try using the cables from your old dvd player and see if that makes a difference if it is not the cables i would try to return it if you still can

My BD530 player doesn't play all movies clearly. Some come cover good others re all snowy


When properly connected to a High Definition display or TV, Blu-Ray Disks (BD) should play crystal clearly. Inserting an old "non-Blu-Ray" disk (or the original "DVD") in the Blu-Ray player will display a comparatively "fuzzy" picture. This is the difference between High Definition and Standard Definition. A "BD player" can not "upgrade" the picture quality on DVDs to that of a BD or High Definition picture.

Rent, purchase or choose Blu-Ray Disks (BD) whenever a choice is offered to view the High Definition version of a movie or video. Selecting the DVD version will provide the lower quality or Standard Definition version of the same movie or video.

Check the covers or disk itself to determine if the movie or video is in DVD or BD format. That will tell you what you can expect for picture quality.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

The coaxial cable connection into the TV loose so the picture is snowy. How can I fix it?


You do need to buy good coaxial cables at a reputable electronics store. You may sometimes use the slide in one with some luck. I prefer a high quality cable purchase at the cable or satellite tv office. The other thing is you may have too many connections going into the tv. You may a dvd or vcr player that is still on. Or the video game box is on etc. Or worse yet...the RF connector on the tv itself is loose and will require a new soldered one in its place...this will require a tv tech! Or the quik fix is to bypass the RF connector and use the RCA cables and Jacks. Hate to leave you with so many options...but most is covered now...good luck!

I recently purchased a KDL-40W5100 LCD Digital Color TV. I gives a great picture, but when I turn on my Panasonic DVD connected to it I get a blue snowy picture (it worked fine on the old TV)Can you help?


Hi,
This may be due to a setting on the dvd player itself. What kind of tv did you have previously? Also what kind of connection are you using to hook up the dvd player to the tv? Lastly, if you have the model number for the dvd player it will help if/when you need further assistance.
Thank you,
Lee

13 TO 14 YEAR OLD SANYO TV SHOULD I GET IT FIXED


You try to play the video tape or DVD. If picture still snowy, the picture tube is getting old. Buy a new one, do not repair it will cost almost a new set.

Unable to retrieve picture on TV


when the screen becomes snowy, it means that something in the cable box is being overheated. what you should do is take a small desk fan and hold it beside the cable box. this has happened many times when my family has played on their xbox 360, and the desk fan solved this problem. i hope that this helps!

Dvd is grainy picture


You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!

Poor viewing with VCR


how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?

yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.
