Change the source on the Philips/Magnavox to switch between satellite and movies (warning: this particular Philips/Mag cannot process HD Satellite receiver boxes). You can switch sources by using the Magnavox remote and pressing 0-2. Then press ch down until the display says either L1 or L2 - whichever input the satellite is connected to. Another warning: For my instructions to work, you must have a non-HD satellite receiver, and you must run a red, white and yellow cable from the satellite box to the Magnavox instead of a standard coaxial cable wire (and then, of course, run a second set of red, white and yellow cables from the Magnavox to your TV).

Hi,

The Sony recorder is connected to the TV via the RCA cables (for both audio and video)? How many inputs does your TV have? One cable input and one RCA line in (making a total of two? Did you eliminate the possibility that the recorder might be defective by trying it on another TV?

I have a rf modulator i dont no where any thing goes i tryed i just dont understand it i just brought a dvd and vhs to gether


alot of DVD/VHS combos have a built in RF modulator. Look for a coax (screw threads) output on the unit and it should be labeld either DVD/VHS OUT or just VHS OUT. If it does not have a combo out then you will need to use the seperate RF modulator.

Your combo unit should have a set of yellow red and white jacks that are labeled DVD & VHS OUT. Connect these yellow red and white to the yellow red and white on your RF modulator, then connect the coax (screw threads) out on the RF modulator to the coax jack on the back of your TV. There is also typically a swich for channel 3 or 4 on the RF Modulator, make sure you TV is on which ever channel you have that switch set to. If your RF modulator has a power light on it, it will usually not come on until your DVD/VHS is sending a signal through it and it is connected properly.

If you have an antenna or cable box, your RF moudulator should have an Antenna or Cable input jack on it that you can use.

How do I connect my Magnavox DVD/VHS player to my Element Flat screen TV?


Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4

Connecting the DVD recorder to a Sylvania TV combo w/TV & VCR


Is the tv a combo unit and has a vcr. well, the way this dvd recorder works it needs the signal of the material that is wanting to be recorded. fortunately it doesn't see anything else without some type of cable of some sort. just with the color cables it just acts like a regular dvd player. the best thing to do is get a hold of a external vcr and run color cables to this dvd recorder and then another set of color cables to your tv and put it on your VIDEO channel. refer to page 34 where it says connections for an external source. it illustrates it will and read carefully. sources: I USED TO WORK FOR THIS COMPANY;)

DVD in, have sound but no picture???


Hi,

Initially, a couple of ideas:
  • check the cables from the DVD to the VHS to the TV (I am assuming that the sound is likewise connected to the TV and not to a home receiver system or an amplifier);
  • I am assuming again that you are using RCA and not RF, if yes pls pay special attention to the yellow RCA on both the DVD to VHS and VHS to TV;
  • diagonal roll often indicates a loose ground or a defective cable/RCA connector;
  • verify settings/configurations in all three; DVD, VHS, TV. TV should be set to AV or Video, VHS likewise to A/V INput;
  • try playing a known good VHS tape, if normal playback, problem is between DVD and VHS, if likewise no video, problem is between VHS and TV.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
