Video adapter port on the tv quit working

The port on the front of the tv that is for the video stopped working. It has worked great for years and two days ago it just stopped working. The audio port is fine. I tried to use some spair adapter cables and tried several different dvd players and none of them worked with the tv anymore. This is an older model w/ the vcr in it. I have had it for years and it has and still is a great tv, it was so wierd that the video port thing quit working. It worked fine Friday night and Saturday it did not. Is there anything I can do to fix this, I don't want to buy another tv.

Re: Video adapter port on the tv quit working

The only thing I can suggest is to clean out the adapter hole with some compressed air, short of that of I would have guess it's got to be some kind of short and it would cost just too much to fix and too much of a job to do it yourself.

Hope this helps.

I want to connect my computer to sony wega triniton kvxr29m80 from the hdmi or vga port to the tv's component or 3rc ports. is it possible..i have tried the hdmi to component cable and it does not...

An HDMI to component video cable will not work. These are meant for projectors that work with computers and have only component in jacks.

You will need is a VGA to Composite video converter, VGA to component video converter or HDMI to component video converter. These translate the computer output to the input the TV will understand. Here are some VGA to component video converters: . (The exception is if your computer has a TV-out port. In this case, you need an adapter that looks like an S-video plug that will then have composite or component video jacks.) If you want to use the TV speakers, you will also need a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter (either M and F/F for an RCA cable to the TV or F to M/M for a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) or cable (3.5 mm M and M/M RCA).

I hope this helps.

(A computer gives RGB output on the VGA cable; the TV reads PbPrY on the component video. Thus you need for the converter rather than a simple adapter. Similar communication differences apply on the HDMI signal.)

How do I connect roku 2xs to sony trinitron tv

If your Tv does not have the HDMI port you can use the RCA cables. If your Tv does not have the RCA video/audio ports you will need an adapter from Radio Shack for hooking up a video camera to a cable Tv. This adapter will allow you to hook the Roku to the adapter with the RCA cables, then the adapter hooks to the Tv with a cable just like a cable box. This adapter is also a pass through for other devices like a cable box and or another DVD player. Hope this helps FixYa up.

I have a trutech tv model number plv1615 t I cannot find the manual I want to use it with my video player. Can you help

I'm assuming you have hooked up the video player and tried, and haven't got it to work? If so, Run the video cords to the correct places, i.e. yellow (video) to yellow port (front/back); white and red are sound, insert each to their corresponding places as well. Next, turn the tv on, as well as the video player, (dvd/vhs/etc) - next, if you have a remote use it to access the menu - then scroll through the list (usually with the volume up/down button, channel up/down buttons, or there will be arrow keys to use). Find in the menu the selection to choose which video port to use i.e., video 1, video 2, or AV, which is more commonly used - AV is usually the ports on the front side for tv's like this. If you do not have a remote, to access the menu (if not "menu" button is available on the front of tv) try using the channel up/down buttons on the tv, by pressing them both at the same time - also, using the channel up/down, or volume up/down buttons to scroll through the menu - to select, there will either be a "select" or "enter" button, or as one set of up/down buttons are used for scrolling, the other two up/down are used for selecting. Once you have determined the uses, find the channel selection, and try AV first. You may be able to find it easier first by simply flipping through the channels on the tv until it appears on the screen usually in the upper right hand corner in big letters -- AV. This will be the channel to use for video - if not, there is one other way to make this work - if the tv and video player have a co-axle port (cable cord connection) then use a co-axle cable. Plug it in to the back of the video player, and then the back of the tv. Select Channel three/four ( some video players have a switch on the back, so make sure they are both on the same channel). Most commonly used is channel 3.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I am trying to install ROKU video streamer into my Sharp TV model 27KS300. Roku says to plug their red/yellow/white RCA cable into the video in ports on your TV. I do this but nothing happens. I am...

Yes these are the same yellow white and red ports that you would use to connect your DVD player. I believe this television has one port in the front and one in the back. I might be wrong but I believe video 1 is in the back and video 2 is in the front. If you have tried video 1 and video 2 making sure you have pressed the video/input button to select the proper one after connecting your Roku then you have done everything properly. Make sure to try a different RCA cable to make sure it is not the cable that is causing the problem. Also try the Roku on a different television because if it is working on a different television with the same RCA cable then you'll know that it isn't compatible with this particular television.

I have a one year old Broksonic 19" flat screen LCD TV. I wanted to use it as a computer monitor, so I hooked up the VGA cord and selected PC as the input. Nothing. What am I doing wrong? Charles...

Is the computer set to send data to the video port? Laptops often have the external port disabled; check the BIOS. (This is often accessed by pressing F1, Esc or F2 before the OS loads. Check your documentation.) Then you can set the preferred monitor by looking at the Display settings.

Some desktops have a similar issue where only one port is active (DVI, HDMI, and VGA). You may need to connect a different monitor via the enabled port or use an adapter to get the VGA cable to mate with that port to change settings. (In the case of computers with video graphics cards and motherboard video ports, only one item is active. Try moving your cable with an adapter if needed to one of the other ports. Then change the BIOS setting if you do not want to continue using the adapter.)

Try a different video cable and make sure it is fully connected to both the computer and the monitor. Damaged cables are always suspect.

What OS are you using? Do you need to download drivers for the Broksonic? Go to and ask in the Product support section - they don't seem to have a direct link on the site. (For example some TVs are not compatible with the drivers in the Mac OS.)

I hope this helps.

We are unable to get video (picture) on our TV, when we hook up to our new DVD/VCR combo. The combo doesn't have an S-video port and our TV does. We get perfect sound though.

Your TV should also have a regular composite video input jack (yellow) in addition to the s-video input. Use that input instead of the s-video. The video won't be quite as clear as with s-video, but you have to work with what the combo gives you.

Video Input

Are you sure that the source is generating a video signal? It is extremely rare for both front and rear Video Input sockets to fail simultaneoisly. from your description, i would suspect the cable connecting the Viseo out of your DVD player / Video Game than the Video Input ports of the TV. If you have another cable, just try again with that. Or, try using the Red to red cable into the Yellow port, using one end at the DVD player and the other at the TV Video Input. If there is image, then it is confirmed that the cable is faulty, and you can get a replacement cable for a few bucks at any Video store.
