Question about RCA F20TF10 20" TV

1 Answer

RCA works fine when watching dvd but when cable is hooked up...

I have an RCA F20TF10 20" Tru Flat Guideplus TV and it works fine when watching a dvd but when the cable is hooked up it makes loud popping noises and the screen goes out and comes back on rapidly. I've noticed that it gets worse the longer we have it on, but only when watching cable. It works fine when it is hooked up to our dvd player to watch a dvd. Tried to hook the cable up through the VCR, but the RCA Ports on both the front and back of the tv are not receiving video. I am guessing that the only reason the dvd player will work is because it hooks up through S-video but our dvd player doesn't have a port to hook cable up through. PLEASE HELP!

I have dynex flat screen hdtv,need to hook up jvc dual dvd-vcr recorder to it need direction pls have no knowledge of hooking up this diagram would also be great

  • find the video input 1 in the back of the tv (this video connector yellow + audio red **audio right channel and white left channel) is known as female RCA conector)
  • get a set of rca wires **known as male RCA*** (yellow red and white)
  • find the RCA female conectors Yellow red and white in the DVD call it video (and audio) output
Connect sets accordingly the TV video input yellow conector with video output yellow with the set of wires RCA yellow. Do the same with audio.

  1. second part of this talking is to find and cable splitter (usually three output and one input
  2. find TWO coax cables (this cable is usually a black wire with a connector each side this fits perfectly in the antena input of the tv)
Now connect your cable into the splitter (input) and your two cables in each output, then send one of them into the TV antena conector and another to the DVD coax input.

To watch your TV only select any regualr channel as you do it.
And to record and actually see Your DVD/tape and what you record also. You have to select in your remote control the video 1

ones you get custome to this configuration you can record a channel and at the ssame time watch any second channel selected in the tv.

I hope was clear.

Rca tru flat tv has a red picture

Is your video input (from cable or satellite or fiber optic, etc.) coming from a coaxial cable, a component cable (red, green, and blue connectors), or an RCA cable (yellow connector for video)?

If you can, try an alternate input method and see if that makes a difference. Does it happen when watching DVDs or tapes, or when playing video games, or just when watching television?

Hooking up DVD/VCR combo to directTV and console RCA

I'd first just hook up the DVD/VCR to the TV and get that working. I'm assuming all you need is the standard cable type connection. This will at least your 4 year old happy. Then you can experiment with the S cable. The S cable will give a cleaner signal from the DVD to the TV. then hook up audio and video cables from the Direct TV to the DVD input. The audio and video will be cleaner using S cables and audio and video cables, but stadard TV cable should get you going. You didn't mention what model DVD player you have. You may have to select the correct inout on the DVD for the Direct TV connection.
