No picture appears on the screen when an accessory device is connected through the component video input cables

Published on 2016-12-29

The component connection requires 5 cables, which are 3 video cables (Red, Blue, Green) and 2 audio cables (Red, White).

  • Ensure that the cables are connected according to the colour code
  • Press the [Source] button on the remote control repeatedly to select the CVI channel to which the accessory device is connected

No picture appears on the screen while all the cables are connected correctly and the correct source is selected:

  • Ensure that the accessory device is set to output component video, as some accessory devices require the user to select the correct video type to which the device is connected. In order to do that, connect the accessory device in an alternative way first to get a picture on the TV
  • For detailed information, please refer to the user manual of the accessory device
