Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a RCA tv and an Onkyo cd/dvd player. I have all run through a Yamaha receiver. I get the error code "unusable signal" when I try to play a dvd. I get the sound, but not the video. What is likely to be my problem? Obviously, I don't have it connected correctly, but I don't know what is wrong.

Check A-V cables, most probebly that one is disconneted internaly which goes to TV's Video Input or coming from DVD player's Video Output. Just hook up new cable and try. One more possible thing is wrong set-up or selection in Yamaha.

How to hook up to panasonic tv & sony dvd player


DVD output (HDMI) to HDMI input on TV will transfer both audio and video from DVD to TV. Audio output on TV to unused Input on Yamaha receiver (Aux, CD, etc.). This hookup will allow DVD and TV channels audio playback through your Yamaha receiver. Remember to test any/all new hookups or connections using minimum settings (volume, etc.), and bring up levels slowly for the initial testing.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

Tape 1 Play

Video 2 Play < preferred

Yellow Video Out to: (you choose one unused)

Laptop into my YAMAHA HTR-6130 Receiver has Static


One possible reason would be a damaged ground in the cable (check with a DVD/CD player or any other device if possible to see if static persists.) if it is not the cable, then try plugging the laptop into the same power outlet as the Yamaha receiver and see if static persists. if static no longer persists, the problem is a discrepancy in the grounding on either end causing static in the signal and you can either buy a filter at most electronic stores. or you can just continue to use that power outlet if it is not an inconvenience. if it IS the cable, well, replacing it should be fine.

No sound


MAKE SURE THE RCA JACKS ARE RUNNING FROM "AUDIO OUT" ON TV OR DVD TO "AUDIO IN" ON RECEIVER.

Unusable Signal


I have exactly the same problem, with my RCA F27645. I can find no answers on the internet, so far.

I have 3 ideas.

1) The digital signal receiver must not be receiving the DVD signal properly.

2) Coaxial cable receiver (the little pin plug) problem

3) Digital TV (broadcasts) causing havoc on older TVs.
