Sounds like you need to change your video cable. You can do this on your own by purchasing the cable that was damaged by the ladder from your local Best Buy, Cicuit City, Radio Shack, ect... and running it then reconnecting it in the areas that you disconnected it or you can call you local cable company to replace it for you (some companies charge a fee, mines do).

I just need to know what wires go from one place to another


(1) Use a HDMI cable for the DVR/Cable source. It has audio and video combined.
(2) Use Optical (laser) Wire if you have a source and corresponding wire.
(3 Use Y (yellow) for video source. R (Red) and (W) White for Audio Left and Right sources from a VCR/DVD.
(4) Use RGB (Red, Green and Blue) from devices that have RGB output like old analog video camera.
(5) You can also use antenna for direct TV signal

Tip

Connecting up your "Whatever" to your TV/HDTV


Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. Colored Yellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCART Connection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get a SCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard called Component Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Also we have with the "Component Video" it is marked "Y" "Pb" & "Pr" these simply go color to color at BOTH ends, this is where the Red, Green, & Blues, colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering that this is ALL only Video. With this method, you still must use the AV, red & White, Audio, Inputs to get the "Sound" into the unit, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

No blue green yellow like in football peach color flags thrown peach color grass is blue green purple color is black etc etc


Are you using a component video connection (3 wires for the video, colored red, green, and blue)? It sounds as though you are, but correct me if you are using a different connection as the steps will be different. If so, ensure that they are all connected. You can also unplug one at a time while watching the picture. If the colors DON'T change when unplugging any individual wire, then check that wire from end to end looking for cuts/corrosion/etc... If necessary, replace the cable. Also make sure that they're plugged in to the right jacks, they should be color coded. NOTE: there is a red jack for the video AND for the audio. Check carefully that these aren't mixed up.

How do you connect the dvd player to the lcd


On the dvd player and the tv you will see three (or more) colored connectors. These are color coded yellow, red amd white. One is for audioleft, another for audio right, and the third is video. You can get the cable with the colors so all you need to do is plug the ends into the same color connectors.
thats about as complicated as it gets. Then you need to look at your tv and select source or antenna. That tells the tv where the signal is coming from. you watch your movie and flip the source back to cable or where it finds your normal tv stuff.

You can get the cabes almost anywhere these days. the dollar store around the corner here sells them cheaper than the tv or electronics stores. I think the larger grocery stores even have some. So you don;t need to worry about spending a lot to get good ones. Very little difference in reality. Only thing is to make sure you get it long enough so you can put the dvd where you want or need to and try to get the 3 cable wih color coded ends.

Sony Bravia 40'' LCD 240Hz TV can't get video signal from DVD


Are you absolutely sure you have it wired up right? Are the Cable RIGHT wires color to color, is the "Correct Input" selected? Remember you do NOT use "Channels" but an AV, AUX, or External.input. Most DVD etc, use AV, IE: Yellow, (Video), Red, (Audio), White (Audio) for the OUT connections. These go color to color at TV end. And uses 3 Cables. The "Other" type of Output/Input is Component Video. This is ALL Video, Red, Blue, Green, these go color to color as well. BUT you MUST also send the Sound, Via the AV, IE: The Red & White, AV, Audio IN/OUT connections, So you in this case would have 5 cables/connections in all.

No sound on play back using camcorder on technika tv


Looks like you are using Component cables. There are five cables. The first three cables are Green,Blue and Red. These are the ones that are molded next to each other and are the Video signal cables. The other two cables are Red and White and they are the audio cables.
First to correctly hook up these cables you need to Connect (Match) Color for Color. (Green to Green, Blue to Blue, and Red to Red. To tell if you have correctly connected the Video cables is to look at the screen. If the picture looks ok (Normal with no colors missing then you have connected the video cables correctly). If you see a missing color meaning red, then switch the Red cables. The picture should be ok now. The remaining two cables are the Red and White cables. The "Red cable" is for the "Right" audio input and the "White" cable is for the "Left" audio Input". If all is connected correctly then you should have a good picture and Left and Right audio.

Maxent MX50X3 HDMI input


I had the same problem and found that the ground wire outside where the cable companys box is was not even hooked up. It was just hanging there, once I hooked it up it went away. The cable company gave me the run around telling me it wasn't their fault. I now have Direct Tv.
