Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi. I'm Steve. I'm sorry to hear about your TV. I will try my best to give you a precise and accurate answer.
I need some additional information from you in order to fully understand the situation.
What is the make and model of your TV?
Do you have the original TV remote?
Let me know so that we can continue.
sony,KDL-46V5100. don't have original remote.
Ok, what we need to do is tell the TV to listen to the input connected to the DVD player and not the cable box or however you get your TV signals.
Since you do not have the remote we can use the buttons on the side. Here is a picture of those: http://screencast.com/t/IUHXDakE0
Press the INPUT button first and then use the Channel up and down buttons to cycle through the devices connected to your TV - one of which is the DVD player.
Can you try that please and tell me if it works. If it doesn't, I will need to know how you have the DVD plater connected.
The movie appears to be p[laying, but the tv is making a popping sound.
Ok, so we have a picture. Half way there.
Now, can you tell me briefly exactly how the DVD player is connected to the TV?
The usual choices are:
Three RCA cables - red, white and yellow
Five RCA cables - two reds, green, blue and white
HDMI cable - single cable with a computer connector that looks a bit like a USB connector
Also, look at this diagram and tell me which jacks we are connected to please:
This set has 4 HDMI inputs. Which one, the one on the back?
the one on the back.
I have speakers.
I'm going to need to know the make and model of the sound system.
I also need to know how you get TV since you are getting TV sound - correct?
So, do you use a cable box? Or something else.
At any time, please feel free to give me as much additional information as you can. I will be able to help you much quicker if I know what is going on.
I just use speakers I bought some time ago.I have cable box.
I have to crawl behind he tv, so it takes some time. actually the speakers are only connected to the mini system.
Ahh, so there is a mini system in the mix now :)
I'm sorry, I am going to opt out of this question which will allow other TV experts to chime in and try to help. I'm sorry that I am unable to help at this time.
