Question about Pioneer DV-545 DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD picture cuts in and out first 15 minutes

I have a brand new Pioneer DVD player, model CD400VK which I have hooked up to my brand new Sony Bravia KDL46XBR2 flat-screen, LCD digital color TV. My problem is that whenever I watch a DVD, only within the first 15 minutes, the picture cuts out for about 10 seconds and then resumes, but about 4 minutes later, it does it again. After 15 minutes of running time, this doesn't happen anymore. I have already exchanged the Pioneer DVD player at the store, but the problem persists. Do you know what could be causing it? What should I do to fix it? Sony Customer Service tells me that if the picture doesn't cut out while watching TV, then the problem must lie with the DVD player. Could you kindly let me know what you think? Thank you. P.S. My PIONEER product is actually model DV-400V-K, but it was not part of the selection list, so I had to pick the closest model number (DV-545) to get past this screen.

This is like the problem I had for some months. After a lot of exchanging cables and troubleshooting on forums like this, I decided to call in the Sony service engineers.

The problem turned out to be nothing more than a menu selection. You need to check the setup menu under video and select the colour system you are using (NTSC, PAL). The factory setting on the TVs is 'auto' apparently and sometimes a weaker signal will cause the auto colour setting to drop in and out. In our case we set it to PAL and the problem has not recurred.

Screen goes blank / black, sound still works


It sounds like your LCD Screen is no longer working. I would try contacting Sony and ask for a refund. I had the same T.V and the LCD Screen had gone out. A techniction came out and Condemned the screen and i had to pay $500 for a new T.V.

DVD is wired to the VCR and does not work


The Sony Bravia should have a number of component inputs, so you should be able to hook up the DVD directly to the TV. The only reason for hooking it up through the VCR would be to record a DVD on VHS... but that's for the birds--VHS is old technology.

Each component input on the back of the TV has a number. You then select to view the component you want by pressing the remote control button to change the display (it should show with one you're on... e.g., Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.).

Screen is green when trying to play a DVD


Hi,
I think DVD player is hooked with TV via component video input.

Check component video connections and make sure each color wire connect in same correspondence color in both units, TV and DVD Player.

Red to red, green to green and blue to blue.

Sony Bravia with Phillps dvd player


The DVD player may have multiple output formats that can be displayed. Sounds like you have the composite output selected when you have the component output selected on the DVD player. Check the menu options on the DVD player and confirm they match the way you have the player connected

Dvd screen is pink


If you are using component cables to connect the DVD to the tv make sure you have the red,blue and green colors on your cables matching these colored jacks on the tv and DVD jacks. If one of these cables is plugged in wrong or not plugged in it could cause this. Good Luck

Connecting old DVD player to LCD


Just respect the colors. Green output from the dvd to green input tv, Red output from the dvd to red input tv and the same with blue. All 3 cables (green , red, blue) are for the picture, so you got to plug another 2 for the sound.
