If you have the round black cable (72ohm) There is a center wire, sometime when this connector is screwed on the center wire gets bent and does not go into the center connection of the receiver. This will give you a no signal situation. Check cable wire to see that the center wire is straight.

If you have a DVD player you can do a test to see if you have a bad tuner in the TV. Using Red, White, and Yellow cables hook up your DVD player to the corresponding jacks on the back of the DVD player and INPUT on the back of the TV with corresponding jacks as well. Turn on the DVD and TV and go to the TV menu and find the input that you have the red, white, and yellow jacks hooked to and see if you get a picture from your DVD player. If you do get a picture you probably have a bad tuner in your TV (if you are sure your cable signal is good). This setup bypasses the tuner. Let me know how it goes. And if you haven't done so be sure you have the right input for your cable signal correct in the menu as well.

How do I hook up a HD satallite dvr to a av reciever dvd player and HDTV using HDMI cables


Things You’ll Need:
  • HD television
  • HD satellite or cable receiver
  • DVD player
  • Stereo receiver
  • AV cables
  • Cable connector
  • HDMI cables
Step1Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar). Step2Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV. Step3Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row. Step4Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV. Step5Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will). Step6Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal. Hope that helps..........

My 61in rca scenium is saying unuseable signal and there is no sound or picture


For whichever input the monitor is currently set to (i.e. Input 1, HDMI 2, etc.) it is telling you that the signal it is receiving is unusable. The question first is the monitor set to the input you truly wish to use?

If it is, then check the cabling between the monitor and the source device (cable/satellite box, game box, etc.) If you believe it the source is working, try swapping the cable or using a different input.

If that fails, try hooking up the source to another monitor and seeing if it works there. If you have a long cable run, try higher quality cables, the video signal can degrade over long runs (> 25').

It sounds like the monitor is receive *a* signal, just not one with enough data to be useable. Probably a bad cable.

No pic, no sound, but, has all three colors illuminated?


  • 1 Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find out.
  • 2 Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
  • 3 Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the way it was.
  • 4 Press the Input button on your remote control to return to the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2. Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
  • 5 Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't receive a programming signal on the TV.
  • 6 Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
  • 7 Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player, you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on your TV.
  • 8 Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or right to turn the speakers on or off.
  • 9 Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television
  • pls rte or vote on how helpful it works.

    you will only be able to get digital surround( dolby digital ) from your dvd player( by the coax or optical digital connections ) , the rest will only be in virtual surround

    from the dtv box plug the yellow video jack(RCA) into the vcr video input , then plug the audio jack or jacks into the audio input on the vcr. from the vcr hook the audio out to the audio in on the reciever( tv/vcr/sat... input ) , then also connect RF out from the VCR to RF in on the TV .
    for the dvd player hook the "s-video out" to the "s-video in" on the tv , then the audio L and R on same s-video input , then send the audio out connection on tv to L and R input on reciever dvd L and R input , then you will need to connect the optical from the dvd player to the reciever or coax connections for the dolby digital on the reciever to work

    DVD Player not working


    Go to menu. Select inputs. Assign input 1(or whatever input you connectedthe dvd to) as DVD. Then exit menu. Press the input key, scroll over to DVD. I reccomend using a component cable with a digital audio cable, if you do not have a DVD player that has an HDMI connection. You will find that a blu-ray player will be much more satisfying for the television you have. Basically by hooking up that old dvd player to that tv, is the same as hooking an 8-track to a $2,000.00 stereo. It will work, but the quality is going to suffer! Good luck, and believe me. It is worth the extra money to get a blu-ray player. It will play all your old dvd's and blu-rays. That way you are getting the full potential of your set.

    How to connect surround sound system, at the moment its connected through cable, each time we use the dvd player we have take them out of the cable box then into the dvd player, we have a LG 42PC55 tv.


    In order of picture and sound quality -- from best to worst:

    1. The best way to connect, assuming your TV and A/V Receiver and/or Cable Box have the jacks, is to use a HDMI cable ( this cable is for both sound and video).

    2. Use Component Video out to input (3 RCA plugs, Red, Blue & Green) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

    3. Use S-Video out to input (1 din plug) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

    4. Use Video out to input (1 RCA plug, yellow) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

    Be sure to select the correct inputs on your TV and Audio/Video receiver when you are watching TV. For example if you have connected your TV to HDMI 1 and DVD to HDMI 2, you will not see or hear anything if you don't select the correct input on your TV and A/V receiver for the input you want to see and hear.

    Detailed connection instructions will be found in your owners' manuals.

    Hope this helped you. :)

    I am trying to hook up my tv to my receiver, I have a dvd vcr combo,and cable box


    Audio: There should be a set of audio outputs on your TV. Connect those to the AUX inputs of your receiver. When you turn on your receiver, set it to AUX. Set your TV volume to approx 1/3 and adjust the volume on your receiver. There's probably a menu section on the TV to turn off your TV speakers so the sound will only come from your receiver.

    DVD/VCR (I'll call it DVD from this point forward): Connect the video (yellow) output from the DVD to the "video input" on the back of the TV. Connect the audio out on the DVD player (red) to the red audio input on the back of the TV, then do the same with the other audio (white). When you want to use your DVD player, you'll select "input 1" as the input on the TV.

    Cable: Your cable box probably has numerous output types. I have the cable box hooked up to both the DVD player AND to the TV; one output type going to the DVD player and another output type going to the TV. I like to use the HDMI output from the cable box to the TV, and the composite video from the cable box to the DVD.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.
