Question about Philips Magnavox TP3285C 32" TV

15 Answers

Hook up camcorder to Philips Magnovox TS2774c101

I'm trying to hook up my new camcorder (Sony DCR SR47) to playback on my old TV. The TV is a Philips Magnovox TS2774c101 and I no longer have the manual for it. I have red, yellow, white input plugs on the back of the TV, if I use them for the corresponding cables from my camcorder, nothing shows on the TV.

I have the TV set to channel 4 for normal viewing, and set it to channel 3 if I want to play a DVD or VCR tape. The Phillips VCR/DVD player is hooked up to the 'output' plugs on the back of the TV (yellow, red, white) and work fine. The Philips DVD/VCR player has the corresponding red,yellow,white plugs in the input side on the back of the DVD/VCR player and the channel selecter for the DVD/VCR is set to channel 3.

Can you assist with the hookup of the camcorder to playback on my TV?

    What do you mean set the TV to video input?

  • slegere3 Mar 07, 2009

    What is meant by setting the TV to video out?put

  • slegere3 Mar 07, 2009

    Still no playback on the TV. TV is set to channel 58, camcorder plugs are plugged into back of TV red to red, white to white etc.

    VCR/TV button pressed on the Philips VCR remote, and tv screen goes a little fuzzy. VCR player shows power on, with the vcr/tv light on the player lit, and the output select is set to video not dvd.

  • slegere3 Mar 07, 2009

    Please explain what is meant by 'select line 1-2 in VCR. I also tried unpluging my cable line to the back of the TV and my vcr/dvd player and just plugging the camcorder into the correct imput plugs. Still no picture on TV set.

  • slegere3 Mar 07, 2009

    After all of the suggestions, still no picture on the TV set from the camcorder.

  • slegere3 Mar 07, 2009

    Thank you. Finally it worked. The channel solution was SAT. The last/or first channel available. Thank you.

It can be possible that the wires are not propers as the connections mentioned by all the other experts are very much proper and the picture should definately come up.check out with another set of wires ,which will be easily available at
www.radioshack.com
also you will receive the instruction book let to connect the wires in the camera and the tv.follow them and it should work.

You should have an audio/video cable that came with camcorder. If it did not come with the camcorder, make sure it is the right one for your camcorder or it will not work. Then plug the red, white, and yellow cords into the back of the tv and turn it on. Then turn the camcorder on and make sure you can see something on the camcorder screen. Using your remote, scroll down to channel 4 and 3 and see if it still does not work. If it does not, keep scrolling down and you should see a channel named input2 and another one named input1. It should show up on one of those channels. If it does not, you should have an option on your remote that says game or video input. Press that, and one of them should work.

You should be able to use your remote, click on the menu and change your video source.
Connect your leads, play the camcorder tape the switch your video input until you see your picture.
I had the same problem until I read my manual too.
Good luck and let me know.
I will also post a manual for you.
Regards.

Ok, on the remote for the tv, hit a button called tv/video or video input or video source.  That should change the channel to av1 or av2.  to my knowledge, this can only be done on a remote, not by pressing the cannel up or down on either the tv or remote.

Let's keep this simple. you are coming out of the camera with a cable that has 3 plugs

white - left audio
red - right audio
yellow - video signal

Plug those into the tv video input jacks (each corresponding colors) either video 1 or 2. start playback on the camera and get your tv remote. set it to video 1 or 2 whichever you plugged your camera into. You will be watching your video.

    Look at the following diagram. I made this for you. Thought this might be easier.


    Set your TV like you always do to watch a movie from tape on the VCR. Now get your VCR remote and change the input mode on your VCR to LINE Input . Push play on your video camera and you should see the picture on your TV.

Hi, I've been doing this a long time and Welcomejee is exactly right. Follow his instructions and you should have no problems.

    Jim London Mar 07, 2009

    Hi, Your tv is dependent on the channel select feature of the dvr. Welcomejee told you exactly right. use the outputs from the camera to the inputs on the dvr. If you have only one set of inputs on the dvr that are currently plugged into the tv, you will need to use those as they are only used when recording from the tv.

Remove any vcr, satellite or anything hooked to the tv.

connect the red, white yellow wire to the tv and the other end to the camera.

set the camera to playback mode, play then pause it during the video annd leave it on pause.

now using your remote control, go to channel 0
or press AV on your remote
press av again if doesn't work

last thing you can do is go from channel 10 to 9, 8, 7 ect..until your frozen frame appears on tv

Yellow – Video Out
·        Black – Sound Out (Mono)
·        White – Sound Out (Left)
·        Red – Sound Out (Right)
If your cable has only a yellow connector, your camera can only play back images and video (depending on the model) without sound. A cable with one yellow and one black connector lets you play back images and video with mono sound. A cable with yellow, white and red connectors lets you play back still images and video with stereo sound.To connect your camera to your television, connect the appropriate end of the cable into your camera's output port and the RCA plug(s) to your television as follows :

Use VCR inputs to see camcorder picture. plug camcorder output yellow-red-white leads in VCR input and select line-1 or 2 in VCR. Now power up your TV and set channel to view VCR picture, now playback camcorder and watch its picture via VCR.
Need further help, please let me know and write comments.

You need to plug to input socket on the Tv , not output.

Posted on Mar 07, 2009

  • Ginko
    Ginko Mar 07, 2009

    You use the output plugs at the back of the TV to record on camcorder what is being watched on the TV.

    To playback from camcorder onto tv you need to use the input on TV, as the TV will get camcorder signal as input and display it.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Mar 07, 2009

    Move the video cable to the input plug at the back of the TV, not output.

    Do that with TV and camcorder off, then restart both the devices.

    After restarting look for external input channel (au ) using TV remote.

DCR-SR47 i have lost CD


It should not be a problem. Hope you anyway know how to use your camcorder. If not, you can download the manual from Sony's site http://www.sony-asia.com/support/manual/product/dcr-sr47e/modelfirst.

If you have already installed the software in your computer, again you need not worry about the CD. If not, then I think you can still download all the software from Sony's site: http://www.sony-asia.com/support/product/dcr-sr47/modelfirst. This site has many tutorials on using the camcorder and also has answers to many FAQs.

Image and sound problems at playback


your tape guides are out of calibration on all your pre - recorded tapes , or they are out of adjustment ( maybe even loose ) now ; - - put your camcorder close , next to your ear ? and . . . listen ! to a new tape in play mode - if you hear a fluttering sound like a deck of cards being shuffled softly , the camera is damaging all your tapes and needs alignment ;
