I have a TH-42PD25. It's almost three yrs old. The dvd player that's connected to the tv is in working condition but there is no viedo on the tv, just audio. At first, the movie was not centered on the tv screen and now there is no movie at all.
What type of connection are you using when connecting the DVD to the TV? (Component, Svideo, etc) You might want to first try a different connection from the DVD to the TV. Let me know if that works. Could be a bad cable also or a bad connection.

The best option would be the HDMI-to-HDMI connection between your player and your TV. But because you mentioned that your TV is an old model, probably it does not have an HDMI port, in which case you have to use the RCA A/V connection. I understand you do not have a remote control for your TV, but you do not program a TV channel to watch DVD movies; you just switch between your TV and the DVD player as your audio/video sources. Here is what you have to do: check on your TV box for a button labeled 'Source' or 'Input'. Press on the button and it will alternate between TV and DVD (assuming you do not have any other device hooked up to your TV).
Could be a number of causes: Someone may have changed the input setting or maybe the TV tuner went bad.. the good news is you can use the cable box tuner instead. If you need the user manual you can find it here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/opermanpdf/TH37PD25.pdf. Just set it all back up and make sure everything is powered up.. the cable box , the TV , the audio system if seperate.
There are two different methods for attaching the DVD to a TV.<br>If the TV has the red and white audio jacks and the yellow video jack, then you just plug them in and then set your TV to use the alternate video input. There should be a button to cycle through the video choices on the remote or menu.<br><br>If you do not have any alternate audio and video jacks on the TV, only then do you need to buy an RF modulator and plug that into the antenna in of the TV, and select channel 3 or 4.<br><br>Here is a better description, with diagrams:<br><br>http://trutech.supportsync.com/article.aspx?id=1005<br><br>
The JVC system is designed to output audio only via the speaker terminals at the rear of the system. There is NO provision to send audio directly to the TV from the system.
Page 14 of the manual (link provided below - free to download) details the connections available to a TV. These connections are limited to three types of connections: 1) "Video" for standard TVs which is "good" 2) "S-Video" for TVs that have an S-Video input jack which is "better" (both #1 and #2 are considered "composite" types).
The third type is called "Component" which is used for TV's that are capable of "progressive scan" video input which is "best" for the system. Notice that the jacks on the DVD player are labeled "Y", "Pb" and "Pr", not "Video", "Left" and "Right". This type video signal requires the use of three cables - they do not send audio as you may be used to see on all but the newer TVs. TVs capable of displaying "progressive scan" video have a better looking picture when using these jacks. Incorrectly connecting the video from the DVD to the TV audio inputs (Left & Right) will likely result in noise or hiss from the TV speaker.
To recap - audio can only be played through the JVC system's speakers. Use the highest quality video jacks that BOTH your TV and the DVD player supports.
I hope this was Very Helpful and enjoy your DVD and TV!
Make sure if your using the video input jacks, that the yellow is plugged into Video 1 and the same with the audio.Red & White. If your using Component, they are color coded- Red Blue & Green along with the Audio In -Red & White. It sounds like you have the video in the wrong jack.
The CD/DVD player has three output ports: (i) Line out Video used to connect the yellow pin of composite cable. (ii) S-video out use d to connect an S-video cable. (iii) Component video out (red, blue, green) used to connect a component video cable.
So, in order to connect the CD/DVD player to the TV, the TV should have either of the corresponding input port on it.
However, the video quality transmitted by component video cable will be the best among the three.
So, you may connect the TV and the CD/DVD player using an appropriate cable.
All the above connections require an additional audio cable to transmit audio from the CD/DVD player to the TV. In this case, you may use an RCA (red and white) audio cable to connect the "R and L" audio out port on the CD/DVD player to the corresponding "R and L" audio in port on the TV.
Performing all the above steps will help you get the DVD player work with the TV.
