The colored jacks match up to the jacks on tv. Tv must be turned to AV channel, Or input channel. The ports they are plugged into should have a channel printed by them.
If you are hooking it up through a VCR it is the same. Whatever it is hooked up to has to be on the right channel.
Channels are usually: AV or Input

SOURCE: 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!

Need to know how to hook up a Toshiba DVD player to a TV


Hello,

To hook up a toshiba DVD player to a television, you need to get the prongs, that you will use to hook them up.

You have a prong with red and white tip, locate the audio out on the DVD and plug in one of the prong in it then locate the audio in on the television, then you plug the other prong in the video out of the DVD player also you plug it in the video in of the television.

That is all you need to do, then you ensure you have your television on the AV mode to enjoy the DVD player on it.

Take care and good luck

Hook up


Hi:
This type of hook up is only for television viewing, to view the DVD you might consider purchasing some componet cables, they are color coded so hooking up is a snap, on the back of the DVD player you will see three RCA type connections Red/Green/Blue. componet cables are also these colors, connect one end of the cables to it coorsponding color on the back of your DVD and the other in the same color connectors labeled componet 1 input on the back of your television. You will also need a red and white RCA connector also for the audio as this is sound, a total of 5 connections will complete the hook up. Or you can go the simple route and use RCA type cables that come as yellow/red/white but for the best picture use componet cables this will allow you to watch your movies in HD.

Trying to hook up an emerson dvd player to tv and its not working? older tv it has no cable hook up or control box for channel set up, shouldnt the dvd player still be able to work though?


IM GUESSING THIS MIGHT BE AN RCA TELEVISION? if you dont have an rca in hook up on the tv give up and buy a new tv or you can find an older item what it is is a switch that has an rca input and a coax output it was used to hook up the older video game systems it is still sold in most stores and that will work if you do have rca inputs and lost the remote you need to get a universal remote to switch the input on certain older rca tv's you could go to channel 00 and it would set it to the input with the switch you shoudl be able to use it by putting the tv on channel 3

I just Cant figure out how to hook this DVD Video Player to my TV


You must give a clearer explanation of the type of television you are using and the type of cables you are using in the hook-up. You should give the television name and model number.The type of connections you are trying to use. What the problem is.Is a conflict between the remotes or just a user problem. You should find all reasonable hook-up information for you television in the owners manual. The same goes for the dvd player. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Poor viewing with VCR


how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?

LOST INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO HOOK UP MY DVD & VCR PLAYER TO MY TV SONY?


Sony maintains most manuals on their website. The general principle is to hook the cables from the video and audio OUT of the DVD/VCR player to the video and audio IN of the TV. Once the cables are hooked up correctly, just press the input, source, av, or video button on the tv or tv remote to change the television to the correct channel so that you can watch videos.

Connections


Hi If I'm understanding what you have written, the new DVD should hook up exactly the same way your old one did. You connect the red and white cable from the "Audio out" connectors on your new DVD to the "Audio In" connectors on the RF modulator, then connect the Svideo out on the DVD to the Svideo connector on the RF modulator. Then put your TV on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the switch on the modulator is set to, and all should work fine. I would advise you hook your old one back up, then if it works, simply unplug the cables from you old DVD and plug them into the proper jacks on the new one. This eliminates bad cables. If you then get sound, but no picture, the DVD may be set to progressive scan (check manual for procedure take it out of that mode),If you get nothing, then I suspect there is a problem with the new DVD player. The TV/VIDEO switch they mention, would be a switch on the TV or TV remote if you had a newer TV with RCA inputs.....You don't, so disregard that, it does not apply to your TV. You would not need the RF modulator if your TV had that switch. Good Luck!...These things can be a pain, I hope this helps!
