DVD connection problem

We have just purchased a 2013 Thor Citation 24SR on a MB Sprinter chassis. There is a Jensen radio/cd/dvd player in the living area with cables/components going to a Quest model QS53D receiver that supposedly connects to the TV. I can visibly see the component cables (red/white/yellow) coming into the Quest via DVD input ports. I push the DVD button on the Quest for the TV and have selected all the different sources (TV/Aux/USB/Component/HDMI-1/HDMI-2) available to no avail.

The demonstrator showing us everything about this model was very thorough except for any electronics... ugh...

Any help or advise is appreciated.

With the Quest selected to show DVD (the only composite cables) on the TV, and the TV input menu selected to "component", then the DVD should be viewable.

Since you report having never seen it work, then the composite AV cable between the Quest and the TV could be out or loose of the jacks on one of the ends. I would start checking there.

Best luck

I see the component cables coming into the Quest box from the DVD player, but nothing going out! Only coax cable going to back of TV, so that is most likely the problem... need to have the dealer I purchased from take a look and fix! Thanks for your input...

Since you report having no composite cable from the Quest QS53 to the TV, Thor probably wired it to use the RF modulator in the Quest and send the signal on RF through the coax instead of a composite cable*.

-Select DVD on the Quest and Select channel 3 or 4 on the front of the Quest...
-Start the DVD player...creating a signal...
-Go to the TV and select "Air" and channel search in the TV menu.

The TV should find the DVD signal on channel 3 or 4** as you previously selected.

DVD connection problem

If the cables are red, white and yellow they are not component cables. They are a composite video cable (yellow) and 2-channel audio. The red is the right channel, white is the left.

Component cables will be labeled R, G and B, for red, green and blue. Alternatively they could also be labeled Y, I and Q.

Thanks to everyone for your input! Scarab0088 hit it on the head as I needed to do another search after selecting AIR and the DVD channel appeared! Yippie...
