Cant connect a rca soundbar to my emerson tv

If your Emerson TV has a digital coax output connector identified as such and your RCA soundbar has a digital coax input connector, you will have to purchase an appropriate cable and connect it. Some soundbars, such as Vizio, have left and right RCA audio inputs to match similar outputs on a TV set.

Setup proscan tv

Newer tvs have a lot of input connections ( holes) and can be very confusing. With out knowing what kind of plugs you have I will try to help as best I can. First ,if you have a coax cable hook it to the corresponding connector. The coax is a pencil sized cable that has a center wire and a threaded nut. It will screw onto the threaded connector on the back of the tv. If you have RCA cables these will be color coded yellow for video red and white for audio plug these into the corresponding connectors. There may be more than one set of these connectors and may be marked input1 or input2 etc.make sure to write down which input you plug these may also have colorstream cables there are three green red and blue. Some of the newer tvs don't have inputs for these but if yours does plug them into the corresponding colors. Another cable you may have is a s-video cable this is a single cable that has a multi pin connector on each end. Again find the corresponding connector and plug this cable in. The newer cable is called a hdmi cable and is a cable with a rectangular end. This one cable takes the place of the multi-pin s- video cable or the RCA cables. It also replaces the colorstream cables. If you were able to connect all your cables up. Turn on the tv. You may get a blue screen that says no signal. Don't panic take the remote and find the input button. Pressing the input button changes the tv to the various sets of inputs on the back on the tv. Press the input button several times waiting in between each press of the button for several seconds untill you find the input you connected your cables to. If your connecting a vcr make sure you have a video playing so there will be a signal for the tv to find. I'm not sure what a PVR is, but make sure it is playing some thing when you scroll through the inputs on the tv with the remote. Hope this helps.

Can you turn coax into rca cables since the maxent I have doesnt have a coax input

You can but the connection type is not the problem. If you have Coax cable or antenna type signal you need to put that into a tuner capable of providing the RCA (baseband or composite) video out with RCA audio as well. However if one is going that route with a HD display then the SVHS tyoe connector or even HDMI or some component level cables should be used to get the full benefit of the HD signal.
If your HDTV has no Coax input then it is not a TV but a display
device more like what is used in computers.

Satellite/Cable Coax "DTV/TV" in-port broke

Replacing connectors on televisions can be a pricy endeavor. If you can't afford to bring it into a service shop, you may have luck by switching to a different type of connector. If your Satellite or Cable receiver has an HDMI output, your best bet would be to buy an HDMI cable and hook that up instead - the quality would actually be better than coax. Failing that, depending on what kinds of outputs your sat/cable receiver has, you could also go with (in order of preference) component video (a cable with five ends, red/green/blue, plus two for audio), s-video (a round metal connector with four pins in the middle), or composite video (similar to a component video cable, but only three ends - red, white, and yellow).
Any of the above cables (including the HDMI) can usually be found at your local big box electronics retailer for under $30.

Problem for Sylvania LC195SLX LCD TV Channels will not program in tv.check with different tv it works

It looks like your TV doesn't have a digital tuner in it. Without that you won't be able to receive any broadcast television stations. The spec sheet is here: LC195SLX the tuner is listed as just ATSC/NTSC - not digital. You will need a cable or satellite box to receive stations.

HD cable question

It sounds like you dont have the right HD box. When connecting HD you will use an HDMI cable or a component cable consisting of 5 cable total 3 for video two for audio. Coax cable is not used to connect HD to your TV / Monitor.

Tv coax f connecter is broke off cannot hook cable cord on it. or antenna

I looked up the manual for this TV and it has composite (RED, WHITE, YELLOW) and component (RED, GREEN, BLUE) connectors as well.

Are you using a cable or Dish box? If so, those boxes usually have output in Coax, Composite, and Component formats. You could just run that type of cable. If you use Component you will also need another cable set (RED, WHITE) for audio.

If, on the other hand, you do not have a cable box and you are using your TV's tuner you only have two options. You can repair the broken connector or you can route the Coax through an inexpensive VCR which will allow you to convert it to Composite cables. In this case, however, you'll have to use the tuner in the VCR, not the tuner in the TV to change the channel. Sorry it's not the best of news.

I want you to know that I'm not paid for this. It's a strange hobby I know, but I like to help when I can. While I cannot physically repair you TV, I hope you've found this information at least helpful and will rate it positively. If you have more questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, and good luck.
