Usually what causes the buzzing sound is the shielding on the RCA cables. If all the connections are tight, plugged into the correct receptacle, and you still get the buzzing, then this is probably the problem. If the cables are poorly insulated, the other electronics will cause interference and the buzzing sound will result. Do you have a number of electronic devices stacked together, or in close proximity? A more expensive RCA cable is probably the answer to your problem - one with preferably gold connectors and thicker, better insulated wiring. Hope this helps...

How to hook up an old RCA 14 inch tv to DVD


Easy. All you have to do is to make sure that the DVD player is old the older types that have RCA connectors at the back of the DVD. Latest DVD may have RCA connections but I am not sure if it can send digital signal directly to the analog TV. Try this and see what happens. if your TV is old and does not have Component Video (Red/Green/Blue) RCA sockets (input) but has standard Pal/NTSC sockets (Yellow/Red/Black) hook up the yellow, red and black plugs into a DVD (out) RCA sockets of same colour, then hook up the other end of the cable in the (in) RCA sockets at the rear of the TV.
If it works, then all is well. If it doesn't work, then you have to hook up the cable from the DVD to the (input) RCA sockets of a Set Top Box, so that the Set Top Box will convert the signals for the analog TV. Just pay attention to the inputs and outputs at the rear of them.
On your DVD - plug the RCA cable to the (OUTPUT) RCA sockets. On the Set Top Box - plug the connectors in the (IN) RCA sockets and then use another cable connected to the OUT RCA's of the Set Top Box, then connect the other connectors to the (IN) of the TV RCA sockets. Hopefully you get the picture on what I mean.

RCA DRC247N DVD Player No Audio


The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work

I have a DVD player (Digitron) which I want to connect to my new Phillips TV but I don't know how to make the connection. Someone told me that I must use the remote control to do this but there is no


First with the TV and the DVD player off, connect the cables with the best possible connection that you can. The cable with the red,white and yellow plugs on both ends is a Composite Video cable. If this is the best output on your DVD player, connect the cable to those jacks and to the matching color connections for a composite (or A/V) in on your TV. Alternatively, use two (usually the red and white plugs) for your audio connection and get a separate S-Video cable and connect that to your TV and DVD player. Composite and S-video both carry only an standard definition (480p) video output.

Your DVD player may have other connections. You will need to buy the other cables to connect these but you will get a better picture (high definition video) if you can use component or HDMI cables. The component video cable uses three plugs (usually red, blue and green) to carry the video signal. You also use the RCA audio cable (red/white) to carry the audio between the TV and the DVD player. HDMI cables carry the video and sound on one cable and looks somewhat like a large USB cable (the side that connects to the computer - rectangular). These cables are available at many stores that sell electronics but you can find them at better prices at online stores that sell cables.

Once you have these cables, turn on the TV and look for a button on your remote (or the TV) that says Source or Input. Press this button several times until you are at the input that corresponds to the one that your DVD player is connected to. (Some of my TVs have more than one of a given input; so you have to match AV1 or AV2 for example.) Then turn on the DVD player. (Note for some TVs it is possible to delete inputs from the source list when they aren't used. You may need to edit this list to see the correct inputs.) If this doesn't help, try turning off the TV then turn on the DVD player first and then the TV and locate the correct input.

Without knowing the TV or DVD player models, I can't identify all of your inputs and how to determine the best one for you to use. If you add a comment with the model information, I'll give you additional assistance if I can.

I hope this helps.

(the inputs on all of my TVs have labels in a small font. Often each input choice is surrounded by a box so that you don't accidentally plug in the audio cable at Component 2 and the video cable at Component 1. You may want a magnifying glass to make sure that you correctly identify the source that you need to find in the input list.)

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.

Is i possible to connect a rca cable to the converter box from a dvd player and watch on the tv?


DVD players can have several outputs:
* coaxiable cable
* composite video (RED/WHITE for stereo audio, and YELLOW for video)
* component video (RED/BLUE/GREEN to video components, plus RED/WHITE for stereo audio)
* HDMI

TVs can have several inputs:
* coaxiable cable
* composite video (RED/WHITE for stereo audio, and YELLOW for video)
* component video (RED/BLUE/GREEN to video components, plus RED/WHITE for stereo audio)
* HDMI

Just use the correct tables to "match" the output to the input.

I have a cable TV connection, analogue, no hdmi, how do i connect dvd player and my other speakers to the TV?


You could purchase an "RF Modulator" box (a very small electronic box) which is designed for connecting DVD players to TVs which have only a coax cable input. The 'RF Modulator' box needs to also have the external audio connections ('RCA plugs) for diverting the audio signal to your external amplification (other stereo & speakers). These RF Modulators are found at most stores, and run $16 - $25.

HOW TO PLAY DVD PLAYER WITH THE TV


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • DVD
  • RCA, component, or HDMI cable(s)
  1. Decide what type of connection to use. Look at the back of your DVD player. It should at least have RCA (red, yellow, white) output ports. It may also have component out, S-video out, VGA out, or HDMI out. These connections vary in picture quality and price, HDMI being the most expensive and providing for the highest-quality picture. Whichever type of connection you decide to use, you also need to verify that you have the same connection on your TV. Flat screen TVs typically have more connection options than other types of TVs, so you should at least have component, RCA and HDMI inputs.
  2. Connect the DVD payer to the flat screen TV. Take one end of the cable or cables you decided to use and connect to the output on the DVD player. The other end should be connected to the corresponding input on the TV. Video input connections are usually found on the sides of flat screen TVs. Once the DVD player has been connected, you are ready to use your DVD player.
  3. Check DVD player functionality. Tune your TV to the input that you used for your DVD player by pressing the button on your remote labeled "input," "source," "TV/video," Source select," "TV/AV" or the like. For instance, if you used an HDMI cable plugged into your TV's "HDMI 1" input, press the input selection button until you see HDMI 1 on the screen. Power on the DVD player, insert a DVD into the player and press play and you should now see a feed from your DVD player.

The easyest way is to use a RCA cable (the red, white and yellow) on the DVD player you should have only one set (red,white and yellow) plug that cable into the input to your DVD Recorder IN plug another cable to the OUT on the Recorder to your TVs, RCA inputs(if you have front A/V jacks on your tv that would be a great place to start, rear is fine) Now turn on your TV to it's A/V channel.( maybe video 1 etc..) Turn on your DVD Player and put in a pre-recorded disc in the DVD Player, Turn on your Recorder find the A/V channel for that Maybe Video1 or 2.
