Hi Linda,
I am happy to help.
You will need a converter.
Here is a link for one made by Belkin. http://www.google.com/products/catalog?rlz=1C1GGLS_enUS291US303&sourceid=chrome&q=rca+to+coax+converter&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=15572311094063678571#ps-sellers

You will also be able to find one at local electronics stores, eg:Radio Shack, Walmart, Target.
Let me know if you need further assistance and please rate this solution as FixYa.

There is only a red and white hole in the tv


I used to have a Phillips CRT TV from 1986 and it did not have the 3 colours red yellow and white on it to plug in the RCA jacks for my Nintendo 64 console. It was plugged into a vcr for it to work. Or you can buy the Rd switch piece for your console http://www.lukiegames.com/N64-Gamecube-RF-Modulator-Nintendo it is an old TV that did not have those parts to it yet 1994 and older will not have them then.

Connecting wii to Sony bravia tv


If you have an old V.C.R that has Red, White and Yellow sockets for AV and it still works then plug it into the RF socket tune the V.C.R to your TV and connect your Wii to the Red,White and Yellow R.C.A connections and you should be playing in no time. I have done this myself on a new Samsung TV it will work. If you have no V.C.R and you have HDMI sockets in your TV you can buy an adapter to convert the existing AV port on the Wii to HDMI then simply connect a HDMI cable (if you have 1 if not they are cheap enough off eBay starting at $6.00+AUD or around $20.00AUD Retail) to the Wii and then the TV ensuring that both the TV and the Wii are powered down prior to connecting any cables at the back. The HDMI Adapter for Wii is available on eBay from $5.00 AUD to $24.95AUD depending on the country you purchase it from. If all else fails a second TV with Red, White and Yellow RCA plugs will work but also the most expensive of the fixes. All fixes suggested will work. Good Luck I hope this helps.

How to hook up my atari


It hooks up to the coaxial jack on the back of the tv ( antenna jack )
you will also have to get a Manual TV/Game Switch Box with Coaxial Output or a 300 to 75 OHM matching transformer or a coaxial (f-type) to female rca adapter. You can also just splice a coax cable to the Atari. There are also a converter box that will convert a coaxial input to RCA output ( Yellow,red,white) cabels

I have a WII and the screen keeps rolling. It's frustrating. I have a 10 year old TV and this didn't do it before. Any suggestions?


Try a different channel or cable. If you are using a RCA to coaxial converter then check the coaxial wire from the converter to tv. Need to know more about the setup.

does your tv have scart sockets?

Which cables do I need to connect my Nintendo64 to my TV? And where do I put them? The tv is an emerson model: ewl20s5 c


the only cord you need to plug into you tv just to play is the input plug (the one that splits into 3 plugs; one yellow, one white, one red).

you also obviously need to plug the nintendo 64 into the wall for power.

this goes for most, if not all video game systems, as long as your not trying to go on the internet

Can you connect the ps3 to a regular tv


There are RCA outputs on the PS3 that will allow you to connect to an older non HD TV. If you do not have RCA (that is the yellow, red and white cables used for video and audio) inputs on your TV, you will need an adapter (most likely a coaxial to RCA adapter found at radio shack, walmart, target, etc.).

Hope this helps,
Bill
