Should the light on the Phillips RF modulator be on if it is working?

    Hi, I have the same problem.  I have a Phillips RF modulator hooked up to my Magnavox old tv set.  All the cables are correct (I hope): Coax Cable out to RF's ANT IN, TV coax cable out to RF's To TV, JVC DVD cables run from DVD out to RF's DVD IN.  When I plug in the modulator the light flashes but won't stay on.  I have the TV on channel 3 and the Modulator on channel 3.  I can tell it works for a second because the screen goes somewhat fuzzy for a moment, but it doesn't seem to be working at all.  Is it a bad Modulator?  I got it about a year and a half ago, but haven't used it at all since I bought it.  I hope I don't have to buy a new one, I'm a broke college student :(

If at all you are getting "no disc" on your player its due to Disc compatible mean to say that Not supporting.
If at all there will be a Player Lens Problem.

On the Dynex? - RF Modulator AV Signal Converter, the RCA plugs on the back, are they input or output?


Input. The intent is to convert Composite Video, S-video and audio from newer devices to old TV's that only have RF (antenna) inputs.

RF Modulators and cable connections

RF MODULATOR HOOKUP
For a TV with only a RF input jack, a RF Modulator can be used to hookup DVD players, DVD recorders and other devices which output RCA composite video and audio. For example, analog cable TV can be connected using a RG-6 type coaxial cable to a VCR or older DVD recorder's analog cable ready tuner RF input. Then as shown above, the output can be connected to the TV thru the RF modulator. The modulator outputs on channel 3 or 4 for the older TV so the TV is set to channel 3 or 4. Some RF modulators are built-in to Audio/Video switch boxes. These allow multiple RCA inputs along with RF input.

RF MODULATOR CLOSE-UP
The modulator converts signals to channel 3 or 4 so older TVs can tune them on their analog tuners channel 3 or 4.

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Bought a Dynex RF modulator, model WS-007, for my dad so he can watch DVD's on the TV with a minimum of hassle (e.g. no switching to video input) . Problem is when DVD player is switched on and DVD is...


Make sure you have the TV tuned to the modulator's output channel (3 or 4 as set by the switch on its rear panel). Also, turn the modulator on first, and then tune the TV to the modulator channel. This will make sure the set properly adjusts its automatic fine tuning. What you're describing sounds like the TV isn't exactly on the channel.

If the trouble continues, try switching the modulator to its other channel and see if the sound clears up. Enough of an interfering signal may be getting through where you have it set now.

If you still have no success, return the modulator and exchange it. These aren't high-precision devices, and often the output frequency is slightly off. On most TVs it's not a problem, but some tuners are more finicky than others.

Rf modulator hook to Dvd and HDtv but no sound coming through the dvd surround home theater player. What should I do to make it work through the DVD player?


Check to see if your audio cable RCA (red and White) wires are connected to the correct inputs. A good rule of thumb is: If the cables says out it has to go in. If it says in it has to go out. Also check your settings on your HDTV in the menu audio section or channel selection.

What to do if your TV won't take your Video/Audio cables


see, your DVD/Video device, outputs Composite Video & and an Audio signal, subsequently you must have AV inputs on your set they are Red & White (Audio) & Yellow (Video) RCA Jacks. If you do not have these then you are a bit stumped. You may however get a RF Modulator, this takes the Composite Video & Audio signal, and converts it into a TV Signal that can be "Received" on a TV Channels.
I have included a link so you understand what I am talking about.

how to hook up rf modulator with tv vcr and dvd player

Feb 23, 2009 | Dynex RF Modulator AV Signal Converter

I have separate dvd player and vcr, how do I hook coverter box up


It took some time, but I finally have this figured it out so everything works.

I have the same setup, but I had one additional piece to the puzzle that I had to figure out. I have an older TV and use and antenna, but had to buy an Audio/Video RF Modulator a couple of years ago to use my VCR & DVD player with the old setup.

Get yourself an Audio/Vido RF Modulator (you can pick one up for about $20-30).
Connect the TV to the RF Modulator.
You should have 2 connectors for your antenna. Connect one to the converter "To Ant" and the other to the RF Modulator.
Connect the convertor A/V cable to "IN" on your VCR.
Connect the cable from converter "To TV (RF)" to "UHF/VHF from Ant" on VCR.
Connect the VCR "OUT" cable to the RF Modulator.
Connect DVD A/V cables to A/V input on VCR.

Your TV should be set to Channel 3 (or 4, depending on your setup) and depending on your "input" connections, you should be able to view vidoes from VCR like this and DVD by changing the input (the button should be on your VCR or other remote). For ex. my input changes on my VCR from channels, to L1 & L2. My converter & VCR play on L1 and DVD's play when I change it to L2.

Now, I just have to figure out how to add the converter box to my universal remote. :)
Good luck!
