If we're talking about the microphone cable wiring on a low impedance mic remember this. Cheap mic cables with XLR's on both ends often have no standard color code to follow. True pin 1 is ALWAYS ground (shield wire) but the other two wires could be any color of the rainbow. Look for small numbers beside each pin of the XLR connector and make sure that pin two on one end of your cable, is also pin two on the other end as well....etc. Special note: The XLR connectors set screws have reversed threads and it's the same for the XLR male plug in the bottom of the microphone as well.....Glen

Hi, I have a onkyo tx-27 quartz synthesized tuner amplifier and I'm trying to conect it to my tv , so I have the red and white cables and I did the conection with the speakers and there is no sound...

Well, the TX-27 has an onboard FM tuner. Is the amp working for IT? If not, you have an internal problem or a switch out of position. Turn the volume to something reasonable before troubvleshooting.

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...

it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections. Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho) if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!

Not DTV ready?

it meens the tv set is in dtv and the dtv conection is not set up.
hd tv is a red blue a green cable.
and the antena conection needs to come from a converter box if signal is coming from antena if from sat or cable you should have a hd box that feeds your set.
hope this helps.
