Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

What are the functions of my input jacks?

My player has 7 female jacks for RCA plugs. The yellow, red, and white ones for standard stereo tv are familiar. They are connected and play DVDs through my tv set.

The player also has jacks labeled: ''Y'' green, ''Cr'' red, ''Cb'' blue, and ''Coaxial'' orange. What are these for? Can I use my same RCA cables to connect these jacks to corresponding jacks on my TV set?

Can I use progressive scan on ordinary DVDs? How?

The Y, Cr, Cb are referred to as "Component Cables". These are for enhanced quality. These connections must be used, at the min, for HDTV. THe Coaxial orange cable is for digital audio (used with a home theater system.

    Sorry, I need to answer the rest of your question. You can use your RCA jacks, but it is recommended that you get some better cables, such as the brand Monster.



    As for progressive scan, this has nothing to do with the DVDs, it is all about the DVD player. If the DVD player is progressive scan and you use component cables, you are good to go. This is assuming you have an HDTV.

I cant get a picture only sound not sure its in the right plug?


if your tv and dvd player are good yes might be you have a wrong connection. this is how a proper connection between your tv and dvd player.
  1. first step in connecting a dvd player to a tv unit is determined what kind of connection you want to make, this usually determined to the outputs and inputs available on the dvd player and tv unit.
  2. if you are using a plasma or a lcd tv usually the inputs are: composite inputs- lets you connect a component source like a dvd, vcr, and laser disc. component inputs - lets you connect another component source such as a dvd player. DVI-HDTV - lets you connect an HD receiver with a DVI output.
  3. for example if you select the composite input what you need is a RCA plug which usually a 3 color plug.this picture is an example of commercial rca plug which usually the color yellow use for video and the red and white color for audio.vinceisaac.jpg.
  4. this is how you will connect those wire into your dvd player and tv unit.look for the component output jack of your dvd player .this picture is a sample of component output jack the color may vary depending tovinceisaac_0.jpgkind of brand or dvd player do you have.
  5. now get your RCA plug then the yellow plug insert it to the Y or video out the red and white plug insert it to the left and right AUDIO out of your dvd player.
  6. now look for the composite inputs jack of your TV unit then get the other end of RCA plug. the yellow plug must be insert it to the V label for video the red and white plug into L/R label which mean for audio input.
  7. after you connect the 3 wires re check all the connections make sure the RCA plug is good and properly inserted to avoid loose contact which can affect the picture and sound quality.
  8. now turn on your dvd player and tv unit.
  9. make sure your tv unit is set to right input you want to use like for example you are using the video 1 input, you need to set to the remote controller into video 1 so that your dvd player must be recognized by your tv. enjoy watching i hope it will help you thanks for choosing fixya as your solution to fix you problem good luck.

How do i connect my dvd rv32 to my sony tv?


It will depend on your TV's inputs. The included cable is a composite A/V cable. This will work. Match the RCA plugs on each device (yellow to video out on the DVD player, video in on the TV; white and red audio go similarly). Alternatively, you can get and use an S-video cable.

For a better picture if your TV has Component video, get a Component video cable (this has three RCA jacks colored red, green and blue on each end) and then use that. You can get a separate audio cable that only has the red/white RCA jacks (or use the composite video with the yellow video jacks dangling).

If your TV doesn't have Composite video inputs, you need a RF modulator (Composite to RF converter). These are available at many sites, including Radio Shack.

I hope this helps.

Can you put a phillips dvdr610 onto a television with built in freeview and then record from it. If so how?


If your TV has an OUTPUT MONITOR Output Jacks, Yellow, (Video) Red (Audio) & White (Audio) FEMALE RCA Jacks.Then these will output WHATEVER is showing on the TV screen. And can be used as an Output for any Recording Viewing device. There will be other, FEMALE RCA Jacks,AV, Yellow, (Video) Red (Audio) & White (Audio) and possibly also The Composite Video, Red, Green, Blue, all Video, These are INPUTS, they will be there also. Make sure.

Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

Coby DVD player set up


Brenna,
Here are some things to remember when messing with cables TO and FROM electronic audio/visual
devices. YELLOW connectors are for what you SEE on the screen of your TV or other viewing device.
The RED/WHITE connectors are for what your ears will hear, LEFT/RIGHT in stereo or mono.
Now all you need to do is connect the YELLOW output jack of your Coby to the YELLOW video
input jack on TV. You must remember forever and ever that the YELLOW jacks and plugs never
contain or transmit or move TV channels or CABLE channels or DISH channels. The YELLOW cable
which has plugs at both ends goes to jacks (output to input) and carries/transmits BASEBAND VIDEO signals only. Now all you need to do is make the TV stop listening to it's antenna in, and to
start listening to the YELLOW/RED/WHITE jacks on the back of the TV. You will need find out how
to put TV into MONITOR mode, or AUX mode, or VIDEO INPUT 1. Basically just match colors and
OUTPUTS to INPUTS. Hope this helps you out.

Copying dvd to vhs


  1. Locate the output jacks DVD player. Sometimes they are standard female RCA A/V jacks, like those found on the front of many VCRs. Others are more tricky, having a small jack that looks like a stereo headphones plug. These camcorders require a special cord that converts a 1/8" stereo signal into RCA A/V male plugs.
  2. Using the proper cord, connect your PLAYER to the VCR's RCA A/V input jacks, usually found on the front or back of your VCR.
  3. Turn on your VCR and TV, so you can see the input from the camcorder. You might have to select "Input 1/2", "Line 1/2", or "VIDEO" depending on your VCR model. You should now see whatever is on your camcorder displayed on your television.
  4. Press "Record" on your VCR, then press "Play" on your camcorder. That's it!

Our tv has two inputs not three. The player has three outputs. The tv has one for audio and one for video. We are unable to get the philips to function under these circumstances. ps we have three different...


ok i am guessing that you are referring to RCA type hookup, if so there are 2 different types - yellow/white/red and red/green/blue no your TV probably has 1 yellow and 1 red or white if this is the case then make sure that you match up the yellow with yellow and then for the red and white these are for sound and you can buy a conversion cable at wal-mart for under $5 just make shure that it is 2 female RCA to 1 male RCA then plug both the red and white into the female sides and the 1 male into the one on the TV - now the channel that this input will show up as will most likely be AV1 or AV2 not a normal channel like the VCR did with channel 3

if you tell me the brand and model # on TV i will look it up for you and give you a more detailed description

Hi
Check and see if you have A/V out jacks on the unit. If you do, they will be yellow, red, and white.
They are called RCA jacks, and if you have them, and the TV has the same type of jacks, then you just need the cable that goes in between. The DVD player normally comes with them, but if not, you can purchase them at any Circuit City, or even Walmart.

DVD player hook-up problem


Using the composite video connection method is pretty straightforward. you will be dealing with one video cable (marked in Yellow), and two audio cables (marked in White and Red) Red is right channel and white is left channel if stereo, if mono use the white marked cable. Look at the back of your DVD player you will see the video out RCA jack (marked in yellow) plug one end of the video cable into this jack, the plug the other end of the cable into the TVs Video In jack (marked in yellow) Then plug the audio cables into the Audio Out RCA jacks of the DVD player Red marked cable to red jack White Marked cable to white jack. After this is done plug the ends of the sother side of the cable into the Audio input of the TV white to white, red to red. At this point you should have video and audio once you set the menu of your tv to accept input from the Composite input and the audio jacks. I hope this helps.
