RCA ColorTrak 27" (non flat) connection to VCR/DVD combo

Hi- My TV has a problem in it's coaxial cable input (donno the technical term for it). So basically the voice is on by the picture is very disturbed (I know the problem is in connector at TV end because when I move the cable the picture fluctuates). So I am trying to connect the VCR with YWR cables. My TV has input slots for them. But when I connect my VCR/DVD using Yellow White Red cables the TV doesn't react at all. I dont know what am I doing wrong and how to fix it. I have a cable connection so cable from wall jack comes to cable box, then cable box to VCR/DVD combo, and then VCR/DVD to TV using coaxial - I just want to replace that last VCR/DVD to TV connection using RCA jacks(Yellow White Red cables). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, harry

I own a rca tru flat model 27F520T and the tv signal is via a starchoice statelite reciever. I recently purchased a Toshiba DVD SD7200. I am trying to view dvd's with the hook up to the statelite...

Try this steps
On the backside of your satellite receiver, you will notice a bunch of connections. If you already have your coaxial satellite cable connected to the INPUT on the receiver, leave it connected. Disconnect and remove the cable connecting the receiver to the television.
Grab your A/V composite wires and insert them into the Audio/Video OUTPUTS on the back of the satellite receiver. These are color-coded connections--red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow. The red and white connections are your audio feeds and the yellow is for your video.
Look on the backside of your DVD/VCR dual recorder. You will see similar connections. Connect the other end of the composite wires to the Audio/Video INPUTS on the DVD/VCR dual recorder.
With a second set of A/V composite wires, connect one end to the DVD/VCR dual recorder's A/V OUTPUT and the other end to the television's A/V INPUT. Again, be sure to follow the color code. Also, if your television has more than one available input, be sure to know to which one you made the connections (A/V 1, A/V 2, etc.)

Next, tune your television to the proper input channel. Look on the television's remote control for a button that is labeled "Inputs" or "A/V." Press it until you see the correct A/V channel appear on the screen. If you made your connections in A/V 1, then the TV should display "A/V 1" in the corner
Now, just turn your equipment on and settle back to watch your favorite show or DVD

Coaxial hookup broke off. Can i use an s cable through vcr? need instructions.

If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!

I have sound but not picture when I play vcr. I

I believe that channel 00 switches the set to the A/V inputs on the rear panel. You may have a bad cable or loose connection. Make sure the RCA plugs are firmly in the jacks at both ends.

The trouble may also be in the VCR. Sound but no picture is often a symptom of dirty heads. Try using a wet-type cleaning cassette and see if that brings the picture back. Wet-type cleaners come with a bottle of cleaning fluid which you apply to the strip inside. It's much more effective than dry type cleaners.

Have an RCA F27636BC TV. Can u hook a DVD player

How to hookup TV

If you have a TV with only a single coax input and you want to hook up components like DVD players and VCRs, here's how to do it.

What you need to connect your DVD player or game players to a TV that only has a VHF/UHF 75-ohm F-connector ("coax antenna input").

1.) RF Modulator with Stereo Audio Inputs.

2.) 6 foot long coaxial cable with male "F" connectors. This cable goes from the modulator to the TV. The modulator also has a coaxial input to plug in your antenna or your VCR.

3.) 6 foot long Video and Audio Cables with "RCA" plugs. The cables connect the yellow, red and white outputs from your DVD or game player to the yellow, red and white inputs of the modulator.

Works with X-Box, PlayStation, Nintendo or other devices that output audio/video via the RCA plugs and you want to connect them to your coaxial only TV.

How to hook up dvd player to tv

You need an RF modulator to convert the A/V output (RCA jacks) of the DVD player into a Coaxial cable you can plug into the back of your TV. I'm including a link to one at This one costs $27.49. You might be able to find a cheaper one at a discount store. You can also use an old VCR if you have one to do this conversion but the connections get a little bit tricky. Plug the A/V outputs of the DVD player into the A/V inputs of the VCR. You'll have to set up the VCR so it knows to use the A/V inputs. Some VCRs have and AUX setting for this. Then connect a coaxial cable from the VCR output to the TV input. You'll have to setup the VCR to send it output to a specific TV channel, usually channel 3 or 4. Then you'll have to set your TV to that channel.

Connecting VCR to TV

If you have the original remote controller, try to switch inputs. It must be on the f-connection ( coaxial) at the moment. You need to switch it to RCA or S-Video Inputs.

RCA TV - Trying to hookup new dvd/vcr player to old tv with only antenna input

The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.

Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.

Connecting VCR/DVD combo to TV

If that is the only input that the tv has it's still usable. Just plug the Cable TV or antenna cable into the DVD/VCR coaxial input labeled "in" (instead of the TV's) and hook one from the DVD/VCR's "out" to the "in" on the tv. Turn the TV to channel 3 or 4 (depends on DVD/VCR settings) and use the built in TV tuner on the DVD/VCR to change channels.

Connecting VCR/DVD combo

If you are able to you can connect to the RF connector (F Type Conncetor) on the TV. This should work. The layout is from the VCR (RF to TV) to the TV antenna F type connector from your Cable box to the Antenna in of the VCR that way you have cable through the VCR, and access to you VCR and DVD all controlled by the Cable and VCR remotes (set TV to Channel 3, set VCR to Channel 3) and use the Cable box as the tuner, Use the TV remote to switch between Cable and VCR inputs then use the VCR remote to switch between the VCR and DVD input.
