Question about JVC DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

Hello, I have a JVC TH-S66 home cinema system where both the composite and scart are faulty (picture appears grainy and almost b&w). I took it to my local repairer who has had it 4 months and says that even JVC specialists say that they have not heard of this problem before. Do you know what might be wrong, and better still if there are specialists who could fix it? Many thanks Jon

Did you contact JVC directly. As a servicer for 25 years, it is typical that I will not get much help from a company UNLESS the customer calls and complains. Sounds like your repairer is caught in that same trap. Frustrating for both you and the repair person, but just how most companies deal with repair problems (IMHO).

Ghosting of picture from a Panasonic home cinema system


There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-

1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.

2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV

3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.

I have a jvc th-p7 cinema system. and when i try to open the tray it say's locked. but i dont know how to take it off?????


You can lock the tray and prohibit the unwanted disc ejection.
On the center unit ONLY:
While the system is turned off
• The system turns on and "LOCKED" appears on the display
window.
• If you try to eject the disc, "LOCKED" appears to indicate that
the tray is locked.
To cancel
Carry out the same operation again.
• The system turns on and "UNLOCKED" appears on the display
window.

Grainy Picture Denon 1740 DVD and Samsung 1080P LA40M81BD


Firstly, you should alter the picture settings on the TV. Most TVs have independant settings for tuner, scart and HDMI, so you may need to do this several times. Once for each.

Excessive contrast and/or sharpness on an LCD causes graininess, particularly around the edges of moving objects.

Check and adjust the following on the TV:
  • Contrast - about 65% max
  • Sharpness - 20%
These settings are a % of maximum, so you may need to work out a value if max is not 100.

Also turn off any contrast enhancements - (Contrast + / Digital
Contrast etc.) dependant on make.

I assume that you are using the upscaling facility of the Denon 1740 via an HDMI lead. If so, disconnect any other connections between the DVD and TV, particularly scart. If the scart is connected the TV will auto-switch to the scart input when you use the DVD, and you will not get the benefit of the high def connection.

This is probably obvious, but make sure the DVD is set to 1080p scaling, and you will need to manually select the HDMI input on the TV.

Green Picture


The problem sounds like one I had. If so, the cause is as follows.

The Daewoo ouputs synchronisation information on the green channel of the RGB outputs (which are pins in the SCART socket) The Panasonic TV automatically preferentially selects the RGB input in the SCART rather than the composite video signal in the SCART. The video circuits in the Panasonic should ignore the sync on the green channel but instead interpret the sync as green signal information which means the adjustment of the green channel is upset leading to a very green picture.

Possible solutions:
1. From the TV, manually select composite video input, not RGB. This may not be possible - I think the TV automatically goes for the RGB if it is present.
2. Disconnect the wire to pin 16 in the SCART socket. This is the signal from the VCR/DVD to indicate that RGB is available. Disconnecting it means the TV defaults to the composite video. This is what I did.
3. Connect the TV to the VCR/DVD using component or S-VHS leads only.
