Hi Boybest,

Yes it's possible.

You have several options with your TV. You can use the Video-In from the auxiliary/line in or even though a VCR. The plugs in this case use what are called RCA Jacks. They travel in three's, one yellow, one red and one white. The yellow is the Video.

Any hook up is going to be dependent upon the output from your camera. Security cameras, for the most part output a video signal much the same as a VCR. Some however use RF (Radio Frequency) which requires it to be attached to a cable or antennae jack and then tuned in (usually channel 3 or 4).

If it's a straight NTSC Video signal there should be no problem. A long cord with RCA jacks to the Video-In would do it. Then you could switch the channel to AUX or Line One (which ever your model uses) to get the camera signal.

Computer cameras have a whole different way of doing things. If you run into any snags, comment me back with the make and model of your camera. I'll get you up and running.

BTW, good things come to those who rate. ;-)

Hope this helps.

The blinks are fault indication. If the standby light blinks 10 times and the set shuts down after that;
Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board

If possible, instead of hooking up the TV using RF cable (standard cable) and viewing the TV through channel 3 (or 4) hook the TV up using audio video cables (RCA type yel.,red and wht.) and hook them to the video input of the TV.

I got a tv combination serial No:553-2988818D model No:C1500SL can I set up a home security camera up on it

If the security camera has a standard video output (RCA yellow cable-most do) and the TV has a video input (RCA yel. for video and wht (red) for sound) you can use a video camera.
If no video input on the TV you can use a RF converter from the camera to use the TV on CH3.
Google RF converter for more info if needed - post back with make of tv if needed. Be sure to rate or vote for me if this was helpful

Ok so you want to hook up a blueray disc player to your 52" TV. Sounds awesome! We need to first see what inputs are on the back of the TV. On the back of the Blueray player you probably have HDMI , Componite and Possibly S video. These are all outputs. If your TV has any of those configurations that are inputs your in bussiness! Try it out and hope this helps you. Have a great day.

We hooked it up with another DVD player, no difference, We used another TV, worked good. We changed all the cable cords, and made no difference. It comes right down to that TV. yes from aboe it is 100% sure that trouble is in tv. every channel is blury and has a trail. it is due to focus of your tv is not ok 1 adjust focus control 2 focur wire going to crt base might be loose due to some foreign material deposited on crt base. 3 defective crt base. 4 if tv is old there might be possibility of crt getting weak. hope this will help.
