TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Thanks for the Question
One of the things many miss is that they must "pick out" theinput with the TVs remote control "INPUT" button have yoou done that?
Do you know what I am referring to?
cannot find the input button
OK let me know the model number of the TV found on the back of the TV please
Then give me 5 mins
The model number please?
found on back of tv
you still there?
ok just give me 5
can you copy and paste that into your browser?
or not please
You can just click that one
On page 52 it explains how you get into the input for the DVD
what do i do from there
Please click the above link go to page 52
you use the TV/AV
button on the remote then the colored buttons on the remote
read page 52
Let me know how it works out
Please remember if all is well to rate the answer positively as this is the only way I receive credit from the site
Any problems do not rate instead just reply back
I can see a picture for a split second then it disappears it does when I change the input to AV1 to AV2
Are you sure thats not the lead or the machine itself?
do you have another similar dvd player to try?
just to eliminate the TV
lead is working perfectly because I used it on another device
so it could be the machine
Play a dvd in it
then switch inputs
if you dont do that the machine may be off tune
so play a dvd switch inputs look at the display good/bad?
if its good it means the machine is ok
and needs tuning (the machine itself)
that still wont be a problem with TV it means the tuning for the DVD recorder itself needs to be tuned and programmed you may need the manual to do that for the machine
OK you need to try a known good machine to eliminate the machine from the set
the dvd machine was working before
its only just recently stopped working
OK so you may have thought it was a connection issue but is probably the machine
I have another DVD player Panasonic Home Theater sound system SA-HT880
swap the machine and you should be good I cant see this being a problem with tv
ok try that
which works perfectly with the same scart lead
the TV is working fine and the other DVD player I have is working fine
yes its the machine bad then if its working with that one
okay so how do we fix this
the machine cant be fixed its a hardware issue inside its not feasible and not econoic to fix to component level inside that machine you just throw these units away these days unfortunately
some high end machines are economic but most are not
if for example it cost £600- £800
otherwise its throw away sorry for poor news
I have answered the question thinking you had a connection issue Im not to know the unit is bad but at least you know that now and know what to do to get the inputs on
ok thank you
its all about knowledge not every situation is a good outcome but the knowledge you have now is more than what you had before you asked the question and maybe saved you money
OK thank you
A positive rating is appreciated thank you
