Question about Curtis CM13102 13" TV

2 Answers

Old Curtis CMC13003 will not display DVD picture

It is a TV/VCR unit I bought in 1990. There is only two AV jacks that seem to be Audio (white) and Video (yellow). But most DVD players have 2 Audios (white/red) and a third Video jack. Do I need to find AV cords that have only 2 (white/yellow)? Is there such a thing? I have tried channel 3 and all display options provided by the remote to see if there is a tricky way to watch DVD on this unit. Or is it frankly just two old school to accept a DVD player?

Still not working


Try checking all your plugs are in the right way. Video / audio (Yellow video..Red audio..White audio) on the VCR are plugged into the OUT jack. On the TV they go into the same color coded jacks but into the IN or AV holes. Then set your TV to AV.

I have a problem conecting my sharp 25h-M60 with my DVD plyer.I have found solution on Fixya. They said I have to use VCR. My question is: What does VCR mean?


If your TV does not have AV inputs (RCA jacks for video and audio), you can't plug the DVD player directly in to the set. One solution is to connect the DVD player to a video cassette recorder (VCR) using the "line in" jacks on the VCR, then using the channel 3 or 4 output from the VCR to the TV. This solution may not work with discs that have copy protection, though, and will give you an unwatchable picture.

For sets with no AV input, you need an RF converter. This is a device that takes the video and audio signals from a DVD player or other device and makes a channel 3 or 4 TV signal to the TV's antenna connector. Converters are available at most retailers where you can buy televisions, as well as online.

How to hook up dvdplayer


Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

We have a new vcr snowy


It seems that you need to take the new unit back for exchange, since you are using the same output for the vcr and the dvd and your dvd is giving you a good picture, the vcr is acting up and since it's new either exchange or repair will be needed.

Zenith TV has no place for yellow, red, white composite plugs


This TV doesn't have an AV input, so there are no input jacks other than the antenna connector. If you want to connect a device that has only AV outputs (your red, white and yellow plug) you will need an RF converter. This will take the AV signals and convert them to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can tune in on the set.

But since you don't seem interested in spending any money, you'll probably not like to hear that the converter runs around $15 most places. Take heart, there is an alternative. Find a VCR (if you don't have one already) that has an RF output. Many of the the newer DVD/VCR combos only have AV outputs. You're looking for one that has an "out to TV" threaded connector on the back. These units already have an RF converter built in. Connect your AV plugs to the line in jacks on the VCR and switch to that input, and you can use your video game or DVD player through the VCR.

firstly try that tv to a different tv
if this works
then check your tv av connections in side tv
also check cables continuity
if this fails buy a AV/ RF converter, have your AV be connected to a converter, and let your output be RF feed to a tv, RF input, so instead of using AV on your tv you will be using RFchannel mode
