I am not aware of any TVs that have a "scart socket", however you are most likely refering to the DVI connection. See the link below.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

This a type of HD connection that is normally used with computer but because a lot of people like connecting their computer to HD TVs this has become a common connection.

To answer your questions no you do not need a new TV. Mainly you need a TV that has your RCA input for audio and video which will work fine. Note my TV that sets on my work bench is over 10 years old and it works fine. Granted it is a 13" TV so I do not do alot of game play on it as it is too small.

Let me know if you have any more problems and/or questions.

How do I connect a dvd player to tv with no scart connection


Make and model of TV would help.
Very odd TV with no SCART and only a single HDMI. You sure it's not a computer monitor? happy.gif
If the TV really does not have any sort of analogue input you will either need to buy a disk player with HDMI or an analogue to digital converter (the former may well be cheaper!), And if there is only a single HDMI you can but switches to expand the number of HDMI inputs if necessary.

Refer to page 15 which states:
"Use a included SCART adapter cable to connect
between the TV's SCART input socket and a SCART
cable to an external AV device's SCART output socket."

When i connect my ps3 via the hdmi socket i get no picture, only sound when i use the ps3 controller. i have tried using the new scart lead and still nothing. i have gone through all the AV channels also....


You may have it set to scart video audio hdmi , instead of the scart try using the analogue video also , yellow connector on tv if it has it , also AV and scart aren't always the same on tvs search through the source option on the tv

Connect VCR without tuner to record from television


If it has a scart, you can get a scart lead to connect it to your TV. You would need to set the VCR to the Scart socket, IE: AV1 etc.. to record. You wouldn't be able to change channel on the TV, to watch another channel while recording though. If you had a set-top box, you could connect that up to the scart of the video then record, while you watched another channel on your TV.

Hii i cannot connect my tv to the dvd player , can u tell me how can i fix this problem


I wrote this down to connect at Digital Freeview box to TV and to Video. It works for me on a portable TV and I am a grannie so if I can do it ............ I did buy one of those scart boxes which allows 4 scart leads just like an electric plug multi socket, very cheap price. Hope this helps and Happy New Year.

Take the scart connector box lead to the digi box.

The scart from the TV and the scart from the Video both go to scart box.

TV aerial itself not plugged in or used.

Bottom video aerial to right digi hole
Another aerial lead (not aerial) from TV hole to left digi hole

PS3 hdmi connection


With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.
