No sound when using coax...

Ok I have a 19" Zenith C19A21D, a few days ago the sound cut out when viewing cable TV, my DVD player and video game system work just fine though they use the A/V jacks, the cable is just fine on other TV's in my house, and I have swapped out TV's and have narrowed it down to that specific problem.....any help?

    theres no cable box, just the coax into the jack in the back of the TV, on a side note, I connected a dvd player to the AV jacks (because the sound works on those) and the sound comes through even if its not in video mode, I think amething to do with the coax input is bad

Do you use AV inputs for your Cable box? If so, try swapping the audio inputs in the TV, that is, interchange the AV inputs for your DVD and cable box. If sound is audible in a different input, then the Audio input (for Cable) on your TV is faulty. One simple suggestion, Why don't you route your Cable signal through the Tuner of your VCR?

SOURCE: Connecting dvd player to zenith sy2551s system and doesn't work

Yes, You need to be on AUX ,you can get to that setting by pressing channel 01 then press the channels down button instead of going to channel zero it will start to cycle through your AUX's inputs on the back of the tv.Also, another way to do this is on the original remote there will be a SOURCE button or INPUT button that can also cycle your TV through the aux inputs.REMEMBER.Make sure your DVD player is turned on and hooked up or else the AUX screen will be black.Rate me when you fix it!GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: Zenith system 3 tv will not turn on

I'd say just get a stereo system (amplifier) or something like that, and hook your cable box, vcr, converter or whatever you have right into that. That's what I've been doing for years. Most cable boxes and satellite boxes will control the main volume that goes to the sound output, or you can get a digital stereo with a remote to control the volume that way.

My TV has coaxial inlet only. Can I connect a Toshiba SD-1300 DVD Player? Thanks

  • You can but you have to add one of two things to make the DVD player with a coax only TV.

  • One you buy a VCR with coax and RCA inputs and outputs. They are cheap enough these days and serve more than one purpose as you can watch VHS tapes as well as run the DVD player to your VCE through the RCA cables. Then run your VCR to your TV and back to the VCR both through your coax. To watch DVD you would need your VCR and DVD player on as well and for VHS you would beed the VCR on only.

  • What it does is provide the RCA input and output your TV does not have. RCA from the DVD to the box and the box run a coax to the TV and that's it for this way.

My tv got no sound..but if connect a video/dvd via rca ok.

Sounds like you have a tuner or an antenna problem. If you are using a DVT converter box to watch off the air TV, the signal has to be very good to get sound and picture. Try connecting a VCR or a DVD player trough the coax cable and see if it you get sound an pic on Channel 3 or 4. If you do, it is an antenna problem.

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.

Mitsubishi rear projection no picture and static sound

I assume you are using a cable input, such as a box or the main Cable line connected directly to the TV. examine the main Cable Coax, look at the copper wire that sticks out from the connecter, make sure it is long enough, if its to short, gently pull it with a long nose plier until it reaches the rim of the connector. Sometimes when connecting the coax to a source, the copper wire in the coax is to short to make contact, and as a result you get no signal. Hope this solved your problem.

Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

No HDMI video output from AVR-588 receiver to plasma TV ???

the avr-588 apparently cannot carry sound via hdmi - don't know why; just what i found out from the geek squad at best buy; solved the problem by connecting optical cable from cable box to receiver; be sure to change the input on the receiver for opt-2 (system setup >2 inputs) to correlate with tv

Tvs usualy have a few ways to hook them up. One is a coax cable this is the silver one in the back that you screw in a cable. The second are RCA cables these are the ones that are yellow, red and white. Yellow is always the video and white and red are for audio. If your using the coax cable your tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 you may have to force the tv to go to that channel by pushing 03 on the remote. If you are using the Rca cables then you need to change the tv to "video 1" or "video 2" this changes the tv from tunner mode to aux input mode. Most DVD players dont have a coax out so you have to use the rca plugs. Some tvs have the rca plugs on the front (video 2) and the back (video 1) or line in. Some tvs have line out also so you need to figure out wich way you have it hooked up. Do a search for the model of your tv and it should show a diagram on how to hook it up.
