    That was i not the solution. I had to obtain a hdtv cable box from Charter and purchased a HDMI cable . My TV is showing a beautiful picture.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls confirm if below is how it is wired using a coaxial cable and not 3cable RCA to RCA:

  • Charter Digital Cable > DVD/VCR > TV
If yes and your concern is snowy or no signal on the TV screen, might it be that you have to power OFF the DVD/VCR when selecting channels on the TV itself (including when channel setup is being done).

Alternately, you can tune the TV to channel 3 and let the DVD/VCR do the channel selections.

Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Heres The Order Exactly As It Should Be. Cable From Wall To The In On The digital cable box. Then From The Out On The Digital Cable Box Run A Cable To The In On The Dvd/Vhs Player. Then From The Out On The Dvd/Vhs Player Run A Cable To The Cable In On Your Tv.
Power OFF the dvd Player Turn On The Cable Box Then Turn On The Tv To Channel 3 Or 4. You Should Have Your Digital Cable Showing On Either Channel 3 or 4. Now Hit Cable On Your Remote And Change Channels.

Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

It could be the internernal cables or solder joint connections to the video input or tuner board. you can test each capacitor with an ohmmeter to see which one is bad. They should be 25-30 ohms.

I want to hook a system


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

Cannot connect a VCR/DVD player to Zenith SY1959Y


you don't need a code for the vcr/dvd combo to work on your tv. You need to make sure you have hooked up the cables correctly. remember that the dvd can be hooked up with the component cabels and the vhs may need to be hooked up thru the tv cable hookup.

I have a Toshiba 50hm66 dlp tv and the picture freezes randomly. I just replaced the lamp unit and the problem still exists. Unplug the unit for 3 minutes to resume operation.


Save tho old lamp unit. This could be a digital signal problem. Check the cables and connections feeding the TV. Are you feeding satellite or cable to the set? Does a DVD or VCR input have the same problems? That should help isolate the issue.

Cable plug broke off


Well first repair the coaxial cable going to your antenna. There is no way you can use RCA cables as a substitution for coaxial cable. They have totally two different properties. You can use the coaxial and feed it to a VCR/DVD player where you can output the signal with RCA/composite cables. Basically, use your VCR/DVD player as a tuner for your TV.

No picture


alot of sets turn solid blue when the signal is lost . check your antenna or cable inputs might be chewed up by pets mostly.
try feeding in a dvd player, or VCR signal and see if that plays on channel 3 or 4 ... if not you might need a new tuner.

Unable to watch DVD's on this TV


Your DVD player may be set up to put out a different mode. Are you using the component cables or s-video? If it's the component cables, make sure you're player is putting out 480p. Also, try it with another set to see of you can localize the problem.

Video input from dvd player shows as black screen w/ squigly color lines


have you tried other devices for input...vcr, or other dvd players to see if it is a problem with the player or with the tv? Check the output setting for the dvd player (1080i etc) and ensure you are connecting to the proper inputs for either analog or digital signals (RCA inputs or RGB).
