Question about Philips Magnavox MPD845

1 Answer

AV input from a game console

I bought the Magavox MPD845 because it had the AV in so I could hook up a game console for play (Specifically the Gamecube).

I used the cord adapter that came with it (The one turning the single-prong into the three standard RCA hookups) and attached those to the Gamecube's outgoing RCA using some male-to-male end adapters. Colours are all consistent, I've triple checked; the DVD player and cables are new out of the box and the GC cables are fine as well.

The DVD player says it is not recieving input signal. Is what I'm trying to do (Use the player as a sort of portable screen for the console) possible, and if so what am i doing incorrectly? Thank you for your help.

Try using the RED, YELLOW , and White connections in different holes soemtiems they get crazy and swap video yellow, to video red instead of video being yellow on both ends, figure out which one is the video cable by trying all 3 , to all 3 connections on your tv, while both devices are on

Assuming you are connected via AV Jacks ( yellow whit and red rca cables) your TV needs to be on the corresponding AV input. Usually accessed via the input button on the remote

I need to connect my Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD to an old HMV TV. I need to know what the frequency of the out pout would be for the A1, A2, A3 output channels from the DVD and what the input frequencies...


It doesn't use TV channels, it uses AV, Audio Visual, input. That means you hook up, to the, whats called the EXTERNAL Inputs, A1, A2, A3, these are the external inputs that relate to the Jacks on the rear/side of the unit. You use the output from the DVD, and hook it up to the AV input on TV. Press Play on DVD and Select, correct external input on TV. Usually it;s Yellow to Yellow Red to Red and White to White.

Trying to hook up an emerson dvd player to tv and its not working? older tv it has no cable hook up or control box for channel set up, shouldnt the dvd player still be able to work though?


IM GUESSING THIS MIGHT BE AN RCA TELEVISION? if you dont have an rca in hook up on the tv give up and buy a new tv or you can find an older item what it is is a switch that has an rca input and a coax output it was used to hook up the older video game systems it is still sold in most stores and that will work if you do have rca inputs and lost the remote you need to get a universal remote to switch the input on certain older rca tv's you could go to channel 00 and it would set it to the input with the switch you shoudl be able to use it by putting the tv on channel 3

Hooking up dcr8335 dvd/vhs combo recorder


it all depends on how you want them to work in combination with each othere

tv will be the last in the line reciving your signal
depending on what inpputs your tv has will determin in wich ways you can hook it all up
a detailed input and output is needed for each device to determin exzactly what way is best to hook them up
ultimatly you want to leave your tv on channle 3 and not have to mess with that remote or button on the universal
witch means routing them in a chain configuration inoput to out to in to out

im not exzactly shur what you mean by rf modulator i am gussing for a game counsel or something similar
meh there is no way i can realy answer this acuratly with out more info on the inoputs and out puts of each device

i can how ever give you an order to follow that i would use
satellite reciver to tv
with the game counsel hooked up to an av input on the tv (requirs a channle change to play the game counsel)
if you dont have an av input and only an rf conector you have to hook them up in a chain witch would be satalite ,rf mod,tv

Technically challenged...need DVD to show on TV screen


hey 1st of all you gotta make sure that your son made tha right connections with the av cable (this is the cable with three different coloured pins) from your DVD to your tv. if this doesnt solve your problem then make sure you are using the correct av channel on your tv set that will allow you 2 play your DVD player because sometimes you cant play your DVD on thhe same av cannel you watch normal tv

Cannot read disc


Had the same type of problem; I called Magnavox on this one. These DVD players aren't "guaranteed" to be able to read discs that were "burned"/homemade. They're only "guaranteed" to play commerically produced DVDs. If you're trying to play something that you made it probably isn't going to work.
