Question about Sanyo DVW-5000 DVD Player/VCR
I lost manual and not sure it is hooked up right. Tried to program channels and that didn't work. Got cable running thru the Sanyo but no response from DVD/VCR. TV works and power c omes on the DVD combo but no blue screen appears just snow. I've tried both Channel 3 & 4 with no change. Help!
Do you have it plugged in with the coaxial cable or do you have it plugged in with the yellow,red,and white cables? If you arent using the coaxial cable and are using the red,yellow, and white cables make sure they match the color of the ports on the TV and DVD player. So you will want red to go to red, white to go to white, and yellow to go to yellow at both the DVD player and the TV. Also make sure you have the cables connected at the terminals labeled OUT. Same if you are using the coaxial cable. Good luck and keep me posted. Let me know if you have anymore questions. If you found this helpful please rate this solution when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101

The video cable (coaxial) should go into the dvd player and another one out from the dvd player to the tv. Remote set to dvd player. Instead of channels 3 and 4 look for video 1, video 2, aux or something similar.
