    I am having trouble with my father in law's Philips dvd player, I am not getting an image on the tv from the dvd player I hear sound but no picture, I hooked it up for him a while ago and everything worked fine I currently have it hooked up to a home theater system and the dvd player's video is hooked by an s-video cable.
    I decided to take the player home to my own home theater and I plugged in one of my s-video cables and nothing happened either, so then I used my component cables and a picture did come up this time exept it was a split screen.
    Does anyone know if this is something that can be fixed in the dvd menu, or if there is anything else I can do.

    Maybe the DVD player is locked into progressive scan mode ... and must be changed to 480i ...

    Some machines are like that ...
