    The tv I have is a Metz, it has 3 inputs; a yellow , a red and a white. The same colors as the cable.

  • Meir Warcel Jul 08, 2007

    There is a buzzing sound when I hook the yellow one in the audio inputs. There is another input under it but it doesn't do anything either

Did you hook the yellow up to a green jack labeld Y on the back? What kind of tv do you have? Some component inputs (the ones with the green Y jack) are not compatible with the video input you have, some are.

    Can you hook the yellow up to one of the audio inputs, if you get a low buzzing sound you are most likely getting video, if not might need a new cable, have you tried another input, perhaps the front input or a input next to the one you are using?

  • les lake Jul 09, 2007

    If the yellow is buzzing on a audio input you should be recieving picture, you will probably have to have your tv serviced, one option is to purchase a RF modulator to watch on ch3, option 2, try yellow cable on a component input (you wont get color, pix will be B&W) this is not a fix but will tell you for sure you have video, try another input, there might be a set of jacks on the front or side that are alternate inputs, try that and see if the others work, I suppose if the set is older it may not offer much other choice of inputs, you may have to stick with the modulator idea. (I havent heard of a Metz tv, perhaps it is a Mitsubishi or a Merantz.)

    good point is this an American use tv or is it for/ from use in another country as it could use a differnt video system, and that could cause a compatibility issue with your picture, although I think you would still see something, try running the PS/2 thru a VCR's video inputs to channel 3 on the tv, I suspect something is bad with the terminal board on the set and the tuner may still work?

Connecting tevion DVD player to palsonic tv for first time in ages. The picture works, but the sound is only very faint, even if I turn up the sound to the maximum on both devices. How can I fix the s

Those cables are RCA jacks. You need to connect all white yellow. You dont need 5 like in the video. So on DVD Player connect red to red ...yellow to yellow.....white to white. Connect to audio/video out. Then on TV connect audio/video in or input same way red to red ...and so on.

You can only get the television to recognize the external audio when connecting to its audio OUTPUT. If it does not say OUTPUT on the television where you've connected the red and white cables between it and the spear bar it is not going to work. You'll have to connect all your devices to the speaker bar with red and white cables and to the television with a yellow or green, blue, and red cable for video.

I just bought a samsung home theater in a box system, model Ht-D5500. And i also have a hd cable box. i was wondering how can i connect my cable box up so that i get audio from the speakers instead of the...

There are two ways of connecting to get cable TV audio from your Home Theater System.
1) If your HD cable box has a digital audio out ( either optical or coaxial ) you can connect this to the Samsung Home Theater Systems digital input. While watching a TV channel scroll through the Samsungs input ( source ) selector till you hear the sound. Remember to mute the TV sound while you are doing this.Most probably it will be the CBL/SAT input or Video AUX.
2) If your HD box does not have digital audio out you can connect the Red & White audio out of the same to your Samsungs Aux or TV or Video audio inputs . Ignore the yellow socket and connect only the Red and White audio inputs.For getting Video through the TV connect the HD box to TV via HDMI cable or connect the Yellow video out to the TV's Yellow video in. I am sure it is already connected .

Proscan 26LB30Q Vs PS2 = HELP

The red white and yellow cables are composite connections. The red/green/blue connections are component connections.

The playstation's composite connections consist of two audio connections- red & white, and a composite yellow video connection. The TV's white connection is the audio, and the red/green/blue are component video. You need an adapter that will connect the one yellow(composite video) to the three red/green/blue (component video) connections

Different sound to picture

When connecting VCR to TV. Verify all connections. First if the connection is with coaxial cable make sure you signal from outside is screwed to the cable input on VCR. Then the VCR/TV output has the cable running to TV input. If hooking up with RCA cables , which is the yellow, red, and white cables. Hook one side up to VCR output. Yellow for Video, while red/white to audio output matching the colors. The same is done to the Television input. yellow for video, red/white for audio. Do a test recording. Use a blank tape, not one already recorded on. Record about 5 minutes Stop recording , rewind and playback. You should see the difference.

PS2 hook-up

I would suggest to feed video from another source such as DVD or VCR to the same input, if the video is visible from other sources on your TV; that means the video cable from your PS2 is defective. If you did not see any video from the DVD or VCR nor the PS2, it means that there maybe a loose connection inside the TV on the video input.
Hope this helps.
