Can I hook up a copying device to my LG 26LV2500

Such as a DVD recorder?
Yes, conventionally a recorder takes the feed from aerial or box befiore the TV but recording whatever you're watching can also be done mostly by using one of the Scart sockets usually on the back of a TV usually identified as Scart 1 AV in/out which should be connected to Scart In on a recorder.
If there are digital output sockets - and digital input sockets on a recorder - you'll get higher image and sound quality than you'll get from Scart.

I have an onn 42 inck flatscreen tv and since last night have lost all colour on screen,,,tried cable and scart all seem ok,,any ideas


If the problem happens using different input and devices, then it is either the terminal circuit (input/output connectors) or the processing unit in main board. The terminals are unlikely the culprit if problem concerns different inputs.

I imagine that the picture is not properly B&W (gray-shades) but some kind of reddish, bluish or greenish picture as the LCD will process picture using RGB (red green blue) channels instead of CYMK (cyan yellow magenta black) like CRT TVs.

Test the TV using an external aerial. You will notice if the channels have the wrong color even from static.

Use different inputs, different cables and different devices. beware of SCART cables, the SCART contacts are very easy to break. A defective cable will loose picture. Better testing using AV cables and component cables. AV cables are red/white for sound and yellow for video. If the two-wired yellow cable does not work, then the TV is faulty.
Other test can be done using component cables. Component cables send the three red-green-blue signals on different cables, hence testing is simple. Test swapping cables and see if TV tone stays the same if color tone changes the problem were the cables. Test also using at least two different devices (e.g. one DVD player and one TV receiver or a playstation).

If you find that the TV is defective call the manufacturer at the number listed on manual. If the problem is that one or more RGB channels do not work the TV main controller board must be replaced.

Dvdr3320v will this model record digital tv programs

This device has 2 composite AV, 1 S-Video, 1 Firewire, 1 RF video inputs. The RF input is a way for it to accept a signal from say a VCR's or Video Game's output on Ch 3 or 4.

Your device also can record via internal tuner.. The tuner can tune VHF:2-13, Cable:1-125 and UHF:14-69. Unfortunately, if you only have a UHF / VHF antenna on your house for TV (do not have cable TV, satellite TV, or the like) you're not going to be able to find anything due to the change from analog TV to digital TV. For this, you would need to purchase a digital TV converter box, and put the output of it into the the DVDR3320V.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

How do i connect a virgin cable box with only scart output to a sony str dh810 AV reciever?

If your TV has audio outputs of any description, connect the V box to the TV via SCART and then connect the TV's audio output to your AV amp. This will allow you to use the amp to listen to the Virgin box's output being displayed on the TV. If you want to listen to mp3, connect the MP3 playing device to the AV amp. Select this source rather than t he source being used for the TV's audio. THe video output of the V box will still be displayed on the TV while you use the amp to play audio sourced via a different input on the amp.

I need instructions to record from vhs video player to dvd recorder

Connect the vcr to the dvd recorder via scart. Set TV to your usual dvd channel and power on dvd. Power on vcr and scroll through input channels (AV etc) on dvd recorder until you find the signal from vcr. Prepare the recorder ready to record, then play the vcr and start the dvd to record.

I can't seem to get it to record any shows off my t.v.

the hdmi connections are input only.
if the tv has scart sockets on the back, and the recorder also, connect to these. the tv's scart needs to be either 2 way or out put shown with an arrow pointing out of a box for output and a 2way arrow for 2way scart.usually scart socket 2 is 2way. set the recorder as you would normally but set the channel to tye av or scart that you are using. please note that video plus will not work on the scart socket. you may also have to set the output for the scart socket via the menu.

Pioneer 503mxe cant wire it up

To connect as you describe you will need a tuner card as the 503MXE is a monitor rather than a receiver. Otherwise the only option is to connect a scart to the 5xBNC connectors (Input 2) but you will need to be sure that your digi box outputs RGB over scart. If you have the optional video card (PDA 5002) fitted then you can connect via the s-video connection (Input 3) assuming your digi box has an s-video output.

What model of DVD player do you have? The RF cable jacks on dvd players are only for switching the RF. All players always use AV input/output or Component input/output, the later is the best.

Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white

Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.

If it's just one video plug, then perhaps you have to set av5 as being in colour somwhere in the menus.  If you require three wires for the pictures, as blue, green, and red, then make sure they aren't in the wrong ports.
Good luck.
