Ive just plugged my super nes in after a good few years without use, but theres no sound. the picture is perfect though. any ideas what the problem may be?


Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
Check your system connections to ensure they are firm and correct.
Remove and reload the Game Pak, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place.
Many Game Paks have an option that controls one or more volume variables. These may have been set to maximum volume during the manufacturing or testing process. Consult the game manual for directions on how to adjust the settings. You can usually get to them by going into the Options screen.
Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion. Make sure the Video Cable (the yellow plug) is in the video input. Plugging it into an audio input will cause buzzing. Also, make sure none of your audio (red) cables, are plugged into a phono jack on your stereo, which can also cause buzzing. Finally, make sure the Stereo AV Cable is plugged into input ports, not output ports. For a detailed review of the hookup, please check our hookup instructions.
Some TVs or VCRs may have special Audio Inputs that don't allow the volume to be controlled by the TV. They are intended to be controlled by a different device, such as a home theater amplifier. Check your manual for the TV or VCR to see if this is the case for your unit.
Some TV and VCRs have a small switch, usually found near the AV inputs, that is used to allow components to send sound out to the TV speakers. Check your manual for the TV or VCR to see if this is the case for your unit.
If you are using the Stereo AV cable for your hookup, remove the plugs and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion. Make sure that you are plugging the yellow cable into the video input, and that the audio cables (red and/or white) are plugged into the audio input jacks on your TV or VCR.
If you only have one audio input, and one plug is hanging, that will result in a loss of sound. Either purchase a Y-adapter or access the game's option menu, and when available, set the game sound option to Mono.
There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.

RF Hookups
Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
Check your system connections to ensure they are firm and correct.
Remove and reload the Game Pak, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place.
Many Game Paks have an option that controls one or more volume variables. These may have been set to maximum volume during the manufacturing or testing process. Consult the game manual for directions on how to adjust the settings. You can usually get to them by going into the Options screen.
Try switching both the TV and RF Modulator to a different channel (3 or 4). Try adjusting the Fine Tuning control on your TV to see if it clears up the sound. A particularly strong TV station (or cable TV) signal may be broadcasting on Channel 3 or 4 in the area, causing interference. For a detailed review of the hookup, please check our hookup instructions.
Try disconnecting the antenna/cable wire from the RF Switch. (You will have to reconnect it again for regular TV viewing.) If this option works, an AB Box may be needed. These can be purchased at various home electronic stores.

RF Modulators and cable connections

RF MODULATOR HOOKUP
For a TV with only a RF input jack, a RF Modulator can be used to hookup DVD players, DVD recorders and other devices which output RCA composite video and audio. For example, analog cable TV can be connected using a RG-6 type coaxial cable to a VCR or older DVD recorder's analog cable ready tuner RF input. Then as shown above, the output can be connected to the TV thru the RF modulator. The modulator outputs on channel 3 or 4 for the older TV so the TV is set to channel 3 or 4. Some RF modulators are built-in to Audio/Video switch boxes. These allow multiple RCA inputs along with RF input.

RF MODULATOR CLOSE-UP
The modulator converts signals to channel 3 or 4 so older TVs can tune them on their analog tuners channel 3 or 4.

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Coaxial hookup broke off. Can i use an s cable through vcr? need instructions.


If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!

Rca model f36649 s-video hookup to laptop computer When I hookup s--video cable to tv & HP Pavillion dv9000. I get nothing on tv? I have tried putting tv on channel 3.


Depending on how many hook ups you have on your tv it may have a factory designated channel. Example: Video 1, Game, etc. I know my TV has several different video channels. It's more a matter of trial and error until you find the vidoe channel for your oulet. Input channels are usually found before channel 1. Or look on your remote and see if it has a button to switch the channel to your input channel. Good Luck.

Hooking up dvd player


Look for any button either on the unit or the remote marked with common stuff like A/V, Input, Source, Aux or Au, Line, TV-VID. or try dialing in Channel 0, or 00, or 1, or Channel Down surf below Channel 2. Alternately, get into the menu and look for stuff concerning Auxiliary inputs.

If all else fails, you can run a DVD's audio and video line-signals THROUGH a VCR. Hookup the VCR to the TV's RF (threaded) connector using standard coaxial cable. Hookup the DVD a/v output lines to the Line-ins of the VCR. Tune the TV to Ch. 3, tune the VCR to Line-in or Auxiliary and press the play or tv/vid button on the VCR to force the DVD signal through on channel 3 onto the TV.

Trying to hookup dvd


Steps to hook up DVD player:

1. Plug in DVD player
2. Plug in VIDEO cable to back of DVD player
There are multiple video out cable options: HDMI, VGA, RCA
If you aren't sure, use RCA (red, white, yellow tri-plug cable) and plug yellow into VIDEO OUT port.
3. Plug other end of video cable into TV's VIDEO IN port.
4. Turn on TV to the INPUT channel that corresponds with the input port you plugged the video cable into. Usually, this is either VIDEO1, VIDEO2, INPUT1, INPUT2, or channel 3.

No receipt of signal or antenae


Since it has voice or sound then I don't suspect the tuner but probably the tuner does not have the 33 volts that goes through r106 location number on the board. It is a 27K resistor and can be bought for about a dollar at Radio Shack. (pack of 2or3) A repairman or someone experienced in electronic soldering and desoldering can change it easily. Could cost around $50 to repair depending on the serviceman. If it has rca jacks (red, white and yellow) The tuner can be bypassed if you have a cable box that passed these signals: audio left and right and video. Hope this helps
