Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Please help! When I connect my VCR/DVD to my new TV, it wont play my videos (almost like the tracking is out). When I connect the same VCR/DVD to an old TV, it works no problem. Have tried using different VCR, but the problem is the same, so it must be something to do with the TV. Any ideas?

This Tv may need a RF modulator around 20.00 at any wall-mart! Just follow the directions!...If this does not work the signel board on the tv may need replaced! If the VCR combo used to work on this tv Then its the signal board! if this is a first time hook up It may just be a modulator that you need!
I hope I was of help to you!
Please rate my response!
Thanl You!

Trying to play video on samsung plasma tv


Hi, Make sure you have it connected properly. TV in to DVD or VCR out.
Left to left and Right to right. Or if you use a S Video or HDMI cable should be better to use. Good luck.

I need instructions to record from vhs video player to dvd recorder


Connect the vcr to the dvd recorder via scart. Set TV to your usual dvd channel and power on dvd. Power on vcr and scroll through input channels (AV etc) on dvd recorder until you find the signal from vcr. Prepare the recorder ready to record, then play the vcr and start the dvd to record.

Trying to hook up dvd player to a philips 27ps55-s121. I cant get it to show up on the tv screen. I dont know what channel the tv needs to be on to show the dvd. and i am unsure where what plug (cable)...


Connect one end of the VIDEO
(yellow) CABLE to the AV1 in VIDEO
jack on the back of the TV. Then connect
one end the AUDIO (red and
white) CABLES to the AV1 in AUDIO
L and R(left and right) jacks on the rear
of the TV. Connect the other end of the cables to the appropriate color on the DVD player (yellow to yellow etc.)

Press the CH + or – buttons on the
remote to scroll the channels until AV1
appears in the upper left corner of the
TV screen.
Slide the TV/VCR/ACC switch to
the VCR position.
Insert DVD into player and press PLAY.

Samsung 2333HD to dvd/vcr combo


Hi there,

On a DVD/VCR combo unit....the Component Output (RED, GREEN, BLUE) is exclusive to the DVD player section only (VCR can only output analogue source) and will only be able to view DVD.

To watch VCR, you will need to connect to your TV via Composite (YELLOW) cable, into the Yellow AV input on your TV. You can then tune the VCR section to match your TV's RF input (if you prefer this connection).

Good luck...

Sharp Aquos LC-37D44U only shows B&W images from DVD & VHS source


First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place? Anyway- If the RCA-video (yellow composite cable) is not producing color, 1 of 2 things may be wrong: 1. You accidentally connected the a/v cables [yellow white and red] to [red green and blue] component inputs or vice versa, or.. 2. Your TV or DVD player is somehow set to the wrong video format. Check the DVD settings for video output format and video connector type. Format should be NTSC, and connector should be composite and/or s-video for the cables you're using.
If this is only happening when connecting the DVD player through the VCR, then check to make sure the same cables connecting the DVD player to the the VCR are also connected to the TV from the VCR.
BTW- if this is just to record DVDs to a VCR, I'll tell you it's not worth it. If your DVD player has an HDMI port, your picture quality will be so much better than if you're watching a VCR copy of one. Your new HDTV will look worse than an old standard def TV. Worse; I'm not kidding.
I hope some of this helps.

Check the cable connections and/or replace the cables to the AV2 input.

If replacing the cable doesn't provide a solution, try running your DVD through the input. Since it works fine now, you would be checking the input AV2 by putting your working DVD. If the DVD plays with no problems, the input is fine.

Also try the VCR using coax into the TV instead of RCA into AV2. This will give you some idea about the condition of the VCR.

I suspect either the VCR or the cables.
