Question about Durabrand DWT1304 13" TV

1 Answer

VCR I have all the Jacks hooked up in the right places- video and audio out on the VCR, and in on the TV. My tapes work, and the VCR plays them, but the TV doesn't play them- nor does it even aknowledge the VCR. I have the channel set on 3 on the VCR and the TV. I can't find my owner's manuel- I wanted to check and see if there's some goofy step I'm forgetting. Please help!

Why are my channels fuzzy?

Hi Virginia,
I have the manual link for you for your TV, basically your issue falls into INPUT issue. Kindly check if the INPUT of your TV is correct. Steps below:

- INPUT SELECT button- Press to select
TV or the external input (VIDEO1,
VIDEO2) mode.

- AUDIO (INPUT) L/R jacks- Connect to
the left/right channel audio output jacks of
a video camera or VCR.
Note: The AUDIO (INPUT)L jack is for
mono input. The sound is heard from both
speakers. Use this jack for monaural audio
equipment to be hooked up.

These steps is in page 2 of the manual. Hope it helps.

Tv only accepts signal from the single black cable cannot get the tv to recognize the 2 audio cables and one video cable.. how do i fix this?

Your Emerson TVs audio format is not stereo; it is mono. Therefore only one audio input will be active. There is a Note give on your TVs manual. I copies it here for your information.

1. VIDEO (IN) jack- Connect to the video

output jack of a video camera or VCR.

2. AUDIO (INPUT) L/R jacks- Connect to

the left/right channel audio output jacks of

a video camera or VCR.

Note: The AUDIO (INPUT)L jack is for

mono input. The sound is heard from both

speakers. Use this jack for monaural audio
equipment to be hooked up.

How do i get to the input/video screen on the RCA F32672sb 32

If you have an old vcr hook the dvd player to the inputs on back of the vcr (RCA jacks) Run a coax cable from the "out" on the vcr to the back of tv. Turn the tv on channel 4 or 3 then put a tape in the vcr and push record then pause it. Or if the vcr has a tv/video button you can push or activate it and it should allow the dvd to play through to the tv.

Can't get my VCR to work

FIRST!!! Make sure you have the coax or AV cables plugged into jacks marked out on the machine.....then....

*If you have it hooked up with a Coax cable, you should immediately have picture and sound when you turn it on. Make sure you have a dvd/vhs running and switch between channel 3 and 4. if this doesn't work, make sure that you have the cable connected to the one marked 'in' or 'cable in' or 'ant in'. then retry the previous steps.

*If you have it hooked up through A/V cables (Red/Yellow/White), make sure you have them all connected to the same set of jacks. They should be labeled Aux 1 or something similar and are generally surrounded by a box molded into the TV's plastic casing. You will then have to use the TV remote to switch TV/Video settings until you get to the one that matches the Aux jacks you have it plugged into. Again...make sure a dvd or vhs is running and keep flipping until you find a picture.

Hope this helps!!!

I am assuming that your TV has Video IN source selection.

You need to use the Video/Audio OUTput of the VCR/CD and connect them to the Video/Audio INput of the TV. To do this you would have to use a 3-wire shielded cable with male RCA connectors color yellow, red & white.
c296912.jpg RCA male connectors, yellow is usually video, red/white is audio left/right.

599898c.jpg as shown OUT of VCR/CD to IN of TV.

Pnce done, play the VCR/CD with a good known CD or tape and set TV to Video mode.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

DVD VHS recorder

It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure. From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables. From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable. From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right). Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.

Atenna plug pulled out of tv, how do i get a signal now?

It has always amazed me how many "F" connectors get pulled out of tuners. I know because I've replaced hundreds, usually successfully, saving the cost of a new tuner. You need to unsolder the tuner from the board and remove the side cases. If the tuner board is not damaged beyond repair, (if it is you have to get creative), a new unit can be soldered in place. Put everything back together and you will be in buisness. New "F" connectors can be purchased from MCM Electronics at, part #215543 for $2.50. I always use a new connector as the old ones are usually trashed. Reliability is compromised if you don't use a new one. Technically you do not need the cable hookup since you have composite inputs. For my money I would just hookup a VCR (with a tuner) coming out of the VCR composite jacks into the TV composite jacks and use the tuner on the VCR leaving the TV in Aux, or whatever they call the composite inputs, and call it a day. It's you're choice but using a VCR tuner is faster, easier, cheaper and if you want to play a VHS tape you're already hooked up! If you are a traditionalist and want the TV 100% remember to be safe while working on it. Good luck whichever way you go.
