If you see the logo she has directv. tune her t.v. to channel 03 or 04 and she should have a picture,if she lives in a apt. her feed may be coming from her provider or her t.v. is hooked up to another t.v. that does have a directv receiver. if this doesn't solve your riddle get back with me as i work for direcv in the tech dept. hope this helps you...

I have dynex flat screen hdtv,need to hook up jvc dual dvd-vcr recorder to it need direction pls have no knowledge of hooking up this diagram would also be great


  • find the video input 1 in the back of the tv (this video connector yellow + audio red **audio right channel and white left channel) is known as female RCA conector)
  • get a set of rca wires **known as male RCA*** (yellow red and white)
  • find the RCA female conectors Yellow red and white in the DVD call it video (and audio) output
Connect sets accordingly the TV video input yellow conector with video output yellow with the set of wires RCA yellow. Do the same with audio.

  1. second part of this talking is to find and cable splitter (usually three output and one input
  2. find TWO coax cables (this cable is usually a black wire with a connector each side this fits perfectly in the antena input of the tv)
Now connect your cable into the splitter (input) and your two cables in each output, then send one of them into the TV antena conector and another to the DVD coax input.

To watch your TV only select any regualr channel as you do it.
And to record and actually see Your DVD/tape and what you record also. You have to select in your remote control the video 1

ones you get custome to this configuration you can record a channel and at the ssame time watch any second channel selected in the tv.

I hope was clear.

Have an RCA console, color, 26" screen. Over 30 years old. Hooked up to cable and DVD player. Overnight the color disappeared and reception is black and white. Did color guns go out?


If you can see white, then all the CRTs are functioning. Make sure that the channel is set correctly. If the DVD is sending out channel 3 and the TV is set to channel 4, you will see the picture, but in B&W, Check that first. Let me know if that does not resolve it.

Thanks,
Dan

Hooking up DVD/VCR combo to directTV and console RCA


I'd first just hook up the DVD/VCR to the TV and get that working. I'm assuming all you need is the standard cable type connection. This will at least your 4 year old happy. Then you can experiment with the S cable. The S cable will give a cleaner signal from the DVD to the TV. then hook up audio and video cables from the Direct TV to the DVD input. The audio and video will be cleaner using S cables and audio and video cables, but stadard TV cable should get you going. You didn't mention what model DVD player you have. You may have to select the correct inout on the DVD for the Direct TV connection.

Rca 62" PROJECTION FLATSCREEN - COLOR PROBLEM/FLICKERING SCREEN


Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.

TV is hooked up to cable,but only blue screen and a/v appear.


Okay...you have a place on your remote which says input or tv/vcr or something like that. You may also have an input menu. You've got to find that. Right now, you're set on one or more of the component (a/v) inputs your set has. You've got to move that back to the tv input. If you are using a cable input or antenna input...these use one connector with a screw on fitting on it.

If you have a tv that does not have cable input...antenna cable, you'll need a balun adapter. Available at any electronics store. If you're trying to input rca style plugs...not every tv has this...especially if more than 10 years old.

RCA Entertainment Series PiP CRT, black screen, static/squeel sound


Hello krysis2000,

Sounds that this might be the proverbial problem some brands have, specially RCA (funny this problem still exists. It was around even when I was a resident engineer for RCA Corp. 20 years ago and hasn't been modified). This problem relates to the tuner assembly. It is a relatively easy fix for a skilled technical person. The cost of repairing it shouldn't even be close to its replacement value, so, in my opinion, worth fixing. Since I do not know the model or age of your TV set (or the inclination you might have to take this as an excuse to get a new HDTV set - LOL), it is entirely your call!!
Hope this helps. Let me know.
