If you use the connections for DVD you must use all of them.If you are using the standard yellow,white,and red connectors connect them to the connections listed as video and not the DVD titled connectors. But my advise is get an up converting DVD player and use a HDMI cable to get the best picture with out having to brake the bank buying a Blue Ray. I once connected a DVD player to my TV in the same fashion before finding out it only gives you a purplish black and white picture. Up converting DVD players can be bought around 30 dollars and up. A 6 ft HDMI cable will cost around 15 dollars. This way you will be getting the full effect and great picture your TV can produce.

My 16 year old son found a Proscan 19LB30QD on the side of the road (good old country living) anyway, it has not plugs, it is probably broke, but we thought we'd give it a try and see if it works. ...


Do you mean that the unit has no power cord or is the TV missing the input board from the side? Sears Parts Direct has parts for the Proscan 19LB30QD here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Proscan-Parts/Television-Parts/Model-19LB30QD/3027/0333300/50036238/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=19LB30QD . The AC cable is PART NUMBER: E080515H00 for $27. There is also an adapter, PART NUMBER: E075WDN1, for $26.79. The input board is part 6 on the diagram (main board).

Other cords will depend on what you want to connect to the TV. There is 1 HDMI port for connecting a set top box, component, composite and S-video jacks (for other set top boxes), a VGA port and a coaxial (antenna jack). Manage My Life has the manual here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/19678/PROSCAN-TV-VCR-or-DVD-Combo-L0807673?brand_name_search=fall+back .

I hope this helps.

How do i connect a DVD player?


Use three RCA cables, yellow, white and red to connect DVD player to TV as shown in the diagram below. Connect yellow to yellow and white to white. Connect red to red. Select on the TV, the A/V input where the DVD is connected using the TV remote control. Power on TV and DVD, place a disc in tray of DVD player and press PLAY.

Trying to hook up panasonic veira flat screen tv without a manual. Not sure where to put the red, yellow and white cord.


These cable is to connect your tv to other hardware like a dvd player. Just plug the yellow cord on the yellow input in the TV and in the yellow output of the DVD, and the same thing for the other two colors. The yellow it's for the image, and the white/red are for the stereo sound (right and left channels).
If you don't have extra hardware you wont need to connect that cable.

Have satelite as AV1, Wii as AV2 - hooked DVD player up as component 1 using RCA plugs but it is only black and white and very grainy.


Connect the yellow RCA jack, which is actually called composite video, not component, to the DVD. If it's component, it's the wrong jack and you'll need the additional 4 cables to satisfy a component connection for HDTV.

I just purchased this tv. I had no trouble hooking up the satalite cable box but When I hooked up the dvd player the picture is only in black and white. How do I fix this?


Are you using component video (red/blue/green) rca jacks, or composite video input (yellow) rca jack? You need to match the color but watch out and do not get confused with the red and white RCA for audio.

How do i hook my dvd player to my tv? i have no manual to show me where to plug the wires into the back of my tv.i have a proscan 32LB30Q LCD


Hello pebbles12137,

This depends on what you want to do SD or HD

First if you just want to connect for SD only

Here are Three ways:

1) connect the coaxial cable to the DVD player F-connector (sliver screw connector) and the to the TV's Antenna in F-connector.

2) connect the yellow, red and white RCA connector end wires to the yellow, red, and white RCA Jacks of the TV Yellow (video in), Red (Right Audio in), White (Left Audio in) do the same for the other end into the DVD player (Best SD Method)

3) connect the svideo cable into the s-video socket of the TV and the other end to the s-video socket of the DVD player


For HD, Here are the connection methods:

1) Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI in of the TV (HDMI1)and the other end of the HDMI cable into the DVD player. (best HD method)

2) connect the Component video cable (RGB) into the RGB sockets of the TV (should be marked as Component 1) and connect the other end to the DVD player (using this method you will have to connect the Red and White audio cables to the audio input jacks of the TV from the audio out of the DVD player)


These are the SD and HD methods.

I would suggest using the HDMI cables only, its the best choice and the simplest.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

DVD plays only in black and white


Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.
