Look on the back of the modulator to see what chanel is selected. Also when it is working right when you turn on th Wii a light on the modulator will come on. So make sure all the wires are hooked up right and the Wii, Tv and modulator are plugged in.

My wii u stil wont work after being hooked to an rf modulator to an older tv


Hi Lisa can you provide some more information
What is the model number and make of the rf modulator?
what wii output did you use to go into the rf modulator ?
what frequency does the rf modulator output at ?
What model number and make is the television ?
What type of cable is being used from the rf modulator to the tv ?
Is it a video cable or a proper 75 ohm impedance coaxial cable
what is the impedance of the rf modulator output is it 75 omhs and what is the impedance of the tv is it 75 ohms or is it 300 ohms if it is 300 ohms on the television ( usually antenna is a ribbon cable screwed onto the back of the tv rather than a coaxial socket ) different you need a balun
http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=LT3022
I am recommending your first point of problem trouble shooting first is to check the impedance of your television compared to the impedance of the rf modulator and compared to the impedance of the cable used. IF they do not match then power is lost and the signal won't get to the TV.

RF Modulators and cable connections

RF MODULATOR HOOKUP
For a TV with only a RF input jack, a RF Modulator can be used to hookup DVD players, DVD recorders and other devices which output RCA composite video and audio. For example, analog cable TV can be connected using a RG-6 type coaxial cable to a VCR or older DVD recorder's analog cable ready tuner RF input. Then as shown above, the output can be connected to the TV thru the RF modulator. The modulator outputs on channel 3 or 4 for the older TV so the TV is set to channel 3 or 4. Some RF modulators are built-in to Audio/Video switch boxes. These allow multiple RCA inputs along with RF input.

RF MODULATOR CLOSE-UP
The modulator converts signals to channel 3 or 4 so older TVs can tune them on their analog tuners channel 3 or 4.

My RF-modulator works when I use a short coaxial cable but will not work on longer runs. Why?


RF modulators are intended for short runs. There is too much signal loss for a long run

After some research http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/51hc85/docs/51hc85_om_e.pdf There is no coaxial input for this tv. Also as far as the RF Modulator you unfortunatly are trying to use that incorrectly. The RF Modulator is used to convert the RCA or Red Yellow White cables down to Coaxile, not vice versa. However if you have an old VCR or better yet a cable box you would want to hook up the cable box then enter the TV using one of the RCA jacks, HDMI Jacks, or other inputs such as Svid. But easy enough if you have a vcr you can access cable through that as well, and make sure the tv is sat to the correct channel or input to access the VCR or other item.

Your TV must be equipped with AV inputs (RCA jacks - yellow, white, red)
in order to connect this unit. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you will need a RF Modulator to connect the DVD recorder to your TV's
antenna/cable input. RF Modulators are available at
major electronics retailers such as Radio Shack or Wal-Mart and allow the 3 RCA outs from the recorder to connect to the RF modulator RCA inputs and then you can connect a coaxial cable from the modulator to the TV RF input and select channel 3 or 4 on the TV. The DVD recorder will not pass thru signals to the TV using coaxial cable as far as DVD are concerned.

Because your TV is an older one, it might not have, what they call RCA inputs (the 3 colored cable) Red-audio right, White-audio left, Yellow-video. If I understand you.

You do have the option of using the 75-ohm coaxial cable inputs. Signal comes in from outside to the 722k, Output of the 722k to the 75ohm coax input on the back of the TV. Tune your TV to ch. 3 or 4. Make sure the switch on the back of the 722k is set to the same.

If you really want to use the RCA colored cables, then you need to buy an RF modulator, which integrates older tv's to newer products. But usually dvd players, not necessarily cable boxes, but it would work if hooked up correctly.

You plug the RCA red, white and yellow from the 722k, into the rf modulator, choose channel 3 or 4 on the modulator

Connect 75ohm coax cable from rf modulator to TV 75ohm coax cable input. Choose channel 3 or 4 on the TV.

Hope this helps.

I have an older model tv connected to Direct TV that I want to connect my Wii system to, but I only see 1 input


If you're referring to you having just having a coaxial cable input in you will need to purchase an RF modulator. This takes the audio / video RCA jacks and converts the signal to pass through to a coaxial input.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    RCA TV - Trying to hookup new dvd/vcr player to old tv with only antenna input


    The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.

    Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.
