Re: Hooking DVD Player to TV

Go to Wal Mart and buy a cable, its the cable with a red end an yellow end and a white end. Your TV does NOT support stereo sound, so you only need the white cable for sound, the yellow is for video.

Just moved, hooked up DVD player to new TV. Sound

if you have a picture on the tv from normal channels and/or cable, then i would suspect the scart lead may have a bent pin at one end or both or is not inserted fully.

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Hooking it up

Easy, just match up color codes from tv to dvd player. If you only have red, yellow and white, they should coincide wih the TV as some TV's dont have the 5 color jacks R/W/G/B/Y inputs. If they do, use the colorstream or "comp" input on the TV

Trying to Install

Do you have the red, white and yellow hookups on the back of your TV????? If you don't then you need to get an RF Modulator. You can buy one at Walmart. Older TVs don't have the red, white and yellow hookups. You hook up the RF modulator with a short cable to the cable outlet on your TV. Then you plug in your DVD player to the RF modulator. You also plug your cable for the TV into the RF modulator. It really is very simple. Directions are included with the RF modulator. You will need a short piece of cable also.

No you don't need them. The red, blue, green wires are component cables for HD.

Hooking up dvd player

Your cables are coded red(right audio), white(left audio) and yellow(video). The cable inputs on the dvd player and tv are likewise coded. Just connect color to like color. In setup, do not
change NTSC! If you should go to PAL you'll never get out of setup and all you'll have is screen roll, as though the vertical hold gave out.
