I think that's your problem. Try taking the cords out and putting them back in. I often mix up the white and yellow ones so that might be your problem.

How do I hook up my dvd/vcr to the tv

On the back of the cinavision you have two groups of sockets. The yellow socket under Video out is picture. Red and white is sound. Connect them to the TV's yellow red white sockets marked Video In 1. This connection will give you picture and sound from either the VCR or the DVD deck.

There's a better picture quality available for DVDs only from the Component video out sockets (green red blue). Next to them is another set of audio sockets (red white). Connect all five sockets to the TV's input number 2. The colours match up. The picture from Component will be clearer and sharper.

On your Sharp TV remote, select Video 1 to watch VCR, and Video 2 to watch DVDs.

Connection using Component video No Video

1-Locate the audio/video input jacks AND the component input jacks on the TV.
Inputs are typically located on the back of the TV, but occasionally are on the sides, top, or bottom. They may also be located behind a hidden panel or door in the television.
Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
Do NOT connect the system to anything marked OUT.
2-Connect the rectangular plug of the Component Video Cable into the Digital AV Out port on the back of the Wii console.
3-Connect the Component Video Cable to the television as follows. (Note that the Red and White audio cables are bound together with a black band labeled "audio.")
4-If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, AV, or a channel such as 00 or 99.

How to program the autio vidio inputs for zenith tv

Hi cathie
If you have sound it means that the tv is in aux/video mode.
Now make sure that the video output of the vcr is connected to the same aux/video input that has the sound connected to. i.e input 1 or 2 .
Also you want to try and switch with another cable to make sure that the cable you are using now is o.k.
Another way to try the tv input would be to connect something else in that input(cable box ,dvd ,video game etc,)
Try it and let me know.

I am trying to connect the vcr to the tv with a cable box

There are two ways to connect your equipment.

1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.

2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.

Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.

No sound

Steve make sure that the coax is connected to the output on the DVD/VCR and to the TV's cable or antenna input. This should give you picture and sound on CH 3. If you use RCA jacks you must also use the yellow video plug as well on the same input on the TV as well as on the DVD to get both picture and sound to the tv. The place yoou put the RCA's on the TV will determine where the image will be displayed e.g. if connected to VIDEO 1 on TV YOU MUST CHANGE THE TV TO THE INPUT NAMED AUDIO 1. You can do this by using the input or source button on the remote control for the tv or go into the tv's menu and perform the task that way. I hope this helps you resolve the issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of more assistance.

I have connected my DVD/VCR to my Samsung 32 inc television but I get no sound

I had a strange issue yesterday too.

Our Samsung DVD/VCr all in one combo did a similar thing.

I used the HDMI cable for the DVD into the TV input labeled HDMI/DVD. That worked okay.

But the VCR part didn't work.
At one point I got sound but no picture. Using the RCA cables in the back on another input "Component 1"

I was trying to squeeze the best picture out of the player using the S-VHS cable.

I thought it did picture only, but the Plasma seems to be more picky about input sources.

I got everything to work keeping the DVD as a separate HDMI to Plasma TV feed.
The VCR was 3 RCA's Yellow (picture) red and white for stereo sound.

I then reset (toggled through the inputs to "reset" the TV.

It finally worked but I was two days mulling it over.

See if this works for you.
My TV was a Panasonic Plasma, but shouldn't matter.
Skip the S-VHS line and connect the inoputs with the TV off.
You MAy need to go into the input of set up menu on the TV (ours had a wrench as an icon) and set the Component 1 or 2 to "VCR".

Multiple video inputs

Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
