Question about Panasonic SA-HE100 Receiver

1 Answer

DVD with RCAs, TV with Scart. Have an adaptor but no joy. Why?

It's a new Phillips DVD player and an old Goldstar TV. The DVD has Y,R,W plugs and the back of the Scart adapter is G,R,B. I've tried plugging it in various diff ways to check but think I"ve got it right; Y=G, R=R, B=W?  But I still can't tune my TV into it. I don't have remote for the TV so am hunting through the channels trying to find the DVD signal.
My problem is, I don't know if it's not working because the TV needs to be on an AV channel I can't reach without a remote (although I have had this TV tuned to a VCR before) or if it is because I've got the plug round the wrong way. Help!

    Erm... thanks but there is no yellow at the other end. That's the problem; I'm working with colours that do not match. I have rca out of the DVD, pls a few other sockets i haven;t really looked at, and the TV ONLY has a scart socket, which I've now plugged a GRB adapter into.
    Do I need to use different output points from the DVD perhaps?

The dvd has Y= video composite, R= Right channel audio, W= Left channel audio these are the common jacks of electronics, Now the G=Green,R=Red,B=Blue are usual Component VIDEO OUT/IN for higher video resolutions, this could explain no video picture, try the Y=Yellow to Y=Yellow from dvd to TV then set tv to a VIDEO input 1 or 2

    You can check to see if the DVD player has component video out 3 rca jacks pB pR pG many DVD player use this video out for higher video resolution, not sure about an older goldstar TV using this video input but newer TV monitors will have this option for input, the vcr would work on a freed-up RF channel like channel 3, but DVD video signal will not work on a channel frequiency, you need to use a video input mode to make the tv a monitor, some tvs will work if you get a 00 channel but many require you acsess the video in selection, check if your dvd and tv have a possible s-video plug, this will be a round din type adaptor with 6 little pins, maybe try out of the dvd player into your vcr and then to the tv, this will work in some setups.

How do i hook up my old admiral vcr to my new rca flat screen tv to tape american idol?

Do both have Scart sockets? If they do you can get a scart lead. All you have to do is set the VCR to the AUX setting that the scart is on and press record!
You won't be able to watch another channel though whilst recording. If you are using the scart socket for say DVD (on the TV) you can get one of these:fa1357d.jpg

I need to reset a sony dvp-f21 to give standard

As far as I know, the output of your dvd is standard. If you're not getting a picture, check you have the correct audio and video leads into the correct plugs on both the dvd player and the scart adaptor, then make sure the scart is pushed fully home in the tv.
Also check that you have the correct input selected on your tv. This is done but pressing the button on your remote that has a square or circle with an arrow through it. Keep pressing it until you see your dvd.

I cannot connect the dvd, freeview and tv wires so that they all work. I only have one scart socket at the back of the tv but have bought a scart adaptor to solve this problem. I cannot get my dvd to work...

If your freeview has two scart sockets,connect a scart from the freeview(marked tv)into the tv,then one from the dvd into the other scart socket on the freeview,the main aerial should go into the freeview and a flylead out into the tv.Hope this helps
