I have a Emerson SDTV and everything is clearly marked, however, I am receiving no response after connecting the DVD to the TV. Does it matter that current my TV is getting no cable signal. See my cable went out or at least it is blinking no signal. The cable tech will not be out until tomorrow.

What you will have to do is just two of the inputs coming from dvd to the tv.
You should have red, white and yellow coming from your dvd. The Yellow is usually used and is marked on your dvd as the video and goes to the video on your tv. You can use either the red or white for the audio input into your tv. You have an older type tv but that is all that is necessary. Video to video and one audio only to the other audio input on the tv. good luck.

I just bought an L G DP122 DVD player from WalMart--where I purchased my Emerson flat screen TV--and I CANNOT hook up the DVD player to my TV--the DVD will NOT play. My DVD Player has three (3)...


Make sure tv input is set for the slot you plugged the DVD
into.On the tv remote you will find inputs.Just change for the right one.
Most of the time DVD player is working when TV is on channel 2 or 3 .

Coby DVD968 surround sound w/TV


you have to check to see if your TV also has "AUDIO OUTPUT" ports, they would be red/white (not next to a yellow - those are inputs", you would hook up red/white from back of the TV to the back of the DVD player where it is labeled "input", you then turn on the dvd player and press the 'source' button to switch it to the right input for your connection. P.S. - it will only do the front two speakers because your tv only outputs 2 channel audio.

I need to connect my Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD to an old HMV TV. I need to know what the frequency of the out pout would be for the A1, A2, A3 output channels from the DVD and what the input frequencies...


It doesn't use TV channels, it uses AV, Audio Visual, input. That means you hook up, to the, whats called the EXTERNAL Inputs, A1, A2, A3, these are the external inputs that relate to the Jacks on the rear/side of the unit. You use the output from the DVD, and hook it up to the AV input on TV. Press Play on DVD and Select, correct external input on TV. Usually it;s Yellow to Yellow Red to Red and White to White.

Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.

assume the cable tv box represents the converter box

you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.

Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.

If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.

You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?

So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.

the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.

That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

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.

Need instruction to hook up dvd player


You will need a TV or monitor with audio/visual inputs. The better ones have what is known as an S/VHS input, which separates the TV picture signal for better color reproduction. You will need to be able to switch your TV, usually by the channel selector, to the proper input for audio visual signals. Sometimes this is known as Video 1, Video 2, A/V etc. These are usually below Channel 2. Maybe your remote has that option. You will need an a/v cable. This is a three-connector cable with RCA plugs on each end. Connect the DVD player to the TV as follows: 1. Yellow cable, from video OUT on the DVD player, to video IN on the TV. Video is ALWAYS yellow. 2. Red and white cables from audio OUT on the DVD player to audio IN on the TV. 3. If you have S/VHS capability, buy an S/VHS patch cable which will have the three plugs mentioned, plus a round 4-pin plug. Select S/VHS OUT on the DVD player, and S/VHS IN on the TV. When using S/VHS, ignore the yellow connector. It is for composite video and not needed. Here's a hint: Your YV audio/visual inputs will usually be on the back of the set. Some better units have a/v inputs in front. What if my TV doesn't have a/v inputs? If your DVD player as an RF output, connect an RF "f" cable from that output to the antenna in cable on your TV. Otherwise buy an RF converter (about $20 or so at Radio Shack). Connect your a/v cable (yellow, red and white) from the DVD player to toe converter, then connect an RF cable (like the kind your cable box is connected with) to the antenna input on your TV. This signal usually comes in on Channel 3. Let me know if your problem is more complicated, It seems like a lot of wires and connections, but it is really straightforward, Remember, yellow is ALWAYS video. The two audio cables can be connected without worrying about color.

Lost manual...I cannot get DVD or VCR to record


You need to decide which set of inputs or outputs you want to use. To record, and watch what you have recorded on your TV, you will need TWO sets of audio/visual patch cords. One for recording and the other for playing. Let's start with the recording. Look for the Line in or video in plugs on your DVD-VCR unit. Some recorders have separate inputs for the VCR and DVD. Others let you select with the remote. Usually Line 1 is at the back and Line 2 is on the front. Your remote will have "recording source" to let you select, or sometimes you can use the channel up and down arrows to select your input source. Your remote will also allow you to select either the DVD or VCR for recording. Connect the Yellow plug to the Video In socket, and the red and white plugs to audio in., Connect the other end of the cord to the TV or cable box. Yellow goes to Video Out, red and white go to audio out. Recording from the cable box is much easier because you wiull always have a signal going into the DVD-VCR recorder no matter what happens at the TV.  Now look for the Video out connection on the DVD-VCR recorder. Connect the Yellow plug to video out and the red and white plugs to audio out. Ignore the other connections at this point. They are for RGB component video. Your DVD -VCR should have one output for both functions. Use that one.
Now connect that cord to a Video one or Video 2 input on your TV.
Test the set-up. Play a DVD or a VHS tape and try to bring it in using the TV remote.
Then turn on a program and try to record it on  the DVD-VCR, then play it back.
This sounds very complicated, but all that's involved are two patch cords with three plugs on each end - 12 connections in all and color-coded. YELLOW is always video.
