How do I get the correctly connect from the DVD player to the TV set?


It depends on your TV's available inputs. If your TV has an HDMI port, you'll get the audio and HD video to your set with one cable if you invest in an HDMI cable; purchase the cable online (you don't need to pay $$$$ for the cable). Stores that specialize in cables will have the best picture. Press the HDMI select button on your remote to go through the resolution options for the DVD player. (see page 14 of the manual
If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port, check for component video. This will also give an HD picture to the TV. You'll need cables for the 2 RCA audio and 3 RCA (Red, blue, green) video plugs (or one cable with 5 RCA plugs) on each end of the cable. The mega-cables though can be a bit more difficult to plug in. Make sure that the colors match. (Some TVs use an adapter that consolidate the cable connection at the TV. You still need to match the colors at the adapter.)

If your TV only has composite in, you'll have an SD signal at the TV. This is the cable with one RCA plug (yellow) for video and the 2 RCA plugs (red and white) for audio. This cable is often included with the DVD player.
If your TV only has a coax connection (OTA tuner or analog cable), you'll need a Composite to RF converter. These used to be available at Radio Shack and can still be found online as well.
If some countries, the TV might have a SCART port. You can find a composite to SCART adapter.
The manual is available from Toshiba here: http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=2805086 . Select the Manuals and Specs tab. The file is a PDF; so you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the file.

I hope this helps. If you need additional assistance, please add a comment with details of your TV.

Cindy Wells
(if your TV has an SD (480i) resolution, you probably only have the composite and coax inputs.)

Connectding audio/video cables when you have a cable box and sound bar with dvd player


How To Connect a DVD Recorder to a Television:
1.If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
2.To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
3.To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
5. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
6. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
7. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
8. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
9. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
10. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

I lost the plug that makes the dvd player work on both,,, i bought an aux cable but it only sends sound not the picture. What is the wire name that i need?


The cable you bought has probably 3 and not 4 segments, that's why it doesn't work, because you need 3 segments for Sound and 1 for video.What you would need is a AV Cable and not a Audio cable (if it is the same cable as the Philipps portable DVD Player.You can call Philipps Customer support at 1-888-744-5477 or their retail parts company called Fox International at 1-800-370-6369.This is what I've personally done, because my cable wasn't working anymore after kids damaged it. Good luck

I am wanting to connect my portable wharfdale dvd player to a tv. where can i get the right connection cable. thanks


Usually somewhere like radio Shack will have those cables, they are called AV, Audio Visual Cables, You need 3 Cables, with "Male Jacks" at both ends, usually Red & White, (The Audio), & Yellow, (Video). They connect color to color at each end, and on the TV you select "Aux", "Extern", but NOT a channel. If you have "Component Video, then you will need a set of 3 & 2 cables, (5 all together) Blue, Red, Green, ALL Video, & White & Red, Audio. you select the "Input" on the TV the same as for AV. So with AV, you use 3 cables, with Component, you use 5. If HDMI you need a single HDMI cable. cables.

I need to know how to hook up to dvr player


In order of picture quality:

Best way is with an HDMI cable if they have that but seeing as that seems to not be HD it probably won't.

Second would be to use component if it has that. That where the picture has 3 cables and then you have the 2 audio cables. They use RCA connectors.

Third would be S-VHS for picture. This looks different than the others, the input will look round with a bunch of holes for the pins of the cable. Again, use the 2 audio cables.

Last, which may be the only thing that dvd/vhs has is use composite video cables. This is where you have one video cable and the 2 audio cables. They are color coded, yellow is picture and the 2 audios are red and white for R and L. If you don't have a cable for that, this is what you need:
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10241&cs_id=1024101&p_id=6026&seq=1&format=2

Now if both decks don't have the same connectors you can get cables with different connectors on each end. You can find them at the same place as the above link.

Once you determine what cable you need you pretty much just need to connect them based on the color coding of the cables and inputs on the components.

INeed av cable for Trutech 7? Dual-Screen Portable DVD Player


Okay, I just had to replace both the DC power and a/v cable for this Trutech DVD player and here is the solution. The a/v cable is a 4 pole 3.5mm cable, which I found here: http://www.techcables.com/6-ft-3-5mm-4-pole-mini-av-to-mini-av-camcorder-a-v-cable-p-36.html I went to Radio Shack and bought the coax style DC power plug ends which were size B and soldered new ends onto the old power cable, tip to tip, sleeve to sleeve: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102598

Dvd/vcr without cable hook-up


If ** cable TV hookups exists, then the only inputs you can use are the line-in along with audio left/right. You've probably got a slew of output connections. Your unit does **t contain a tuner (which would allow you to use a cable input). You need to have a cable box or other device (vcr/tv) that has outputs compatible with the input of your dvd/vcr. A lot of dvd/vcrs are that way. It actually saves you some $$ since most cable boxes (especially HDTV compatible) already have the required outputs on them.
