My advice to you is buy the original remote! Lots of these so-called UNIVERSAL types never have all functions so get the proper remote and set it up right!

Remove & re-seat the component video cables at both the TV and the DVD player.

If the problem continues, disconnect BOTH ends of the BLUE cable and the RED cable. Connect the BLUE cable to the RED jack at both the DVD and TV, and connect the RED cable to the BLUE jack ob both the TV and DVD. If the RED color comes back and the BLUE is missing, then replace the RED cable (the red cable is broken and will not pass the signal that it is connected to).

If all works, reconnect the colored cables to the corresponding colored jacks at both the TV and DVD player.

If the RED color still won't display, isolate the trouble to either the DVD player or TV by connecting the DVD to another TV w/ component jacks. If the RED is still missing, it is a problem inside the DVD player - if the RED displays, it is a problem with the TV.

Good luck!

You need a learning remote control or check e-bay. Almost any Sony DVD remote will work. 10-20$ If you list the model # of the remote I may even have one. Hope this helps

The key is having at least a Universal Remote ($10.00 or less) that will operate your brand of TV. Your TV is only looking at "stations". You need to make it see Aux-1, Aux-2, or Line In mode. BUT, another trick is to run the DVD into your VCR (if capable). Select the VCR proper "input mode" (Aux-1, Aux-2, or Line In mode) then the DVD will play through the VCR and it will play through the TV on either channel 3 or 4. Problem solved!

There are several ways to connect the TV to the DVD player but you can only take advantage of the progressive scan option on your player if you use component cable. Component cable has three input jacks on it and they are colored Green, Blue, and Red. Your TV/amplifer must have component input jacks on the back of it to use this cable. If it does, then the input jacks on the back of the TV are usually labled Y, Pa, and Pr. The Y input is for the Green input jack, the Pa input is for the Blue input jack and the Pr is for the Red input jack. Once you have these plugged in you will next need to hookup the audio/vidoe cable that came with your DVD player that has a Yellow, White, and Red input jacks on it. The Yellow input jack is for Video and the White and Red are for audio. Both your TV and DVD player will have inputs for these so just match them up. If you do not have component inputs on your TV then just hook up the audio/video cable and it will work.

The most likely thing is that the optics on the laser are dusty. Get yourself a CD Optics cleaning disc which has little brushes on it.

The other possibility is the discs you are playing? Are they mastered originals or copies? Are they clean and scratch free?


The unit is faulty.

Unplug the player from the wall, press power button on the player for about 10seconds and plug in power again.

Assuming you are using a cable to connect your cell phone to the speaker you could be overloading the input of the speaker when you turn the phone volume up very high. That would cause distortion that might damage the speaker so it shuts down or turns off.
