Question about Televison & Video

Why won't my TV accept the Av signal from my VCR?

My AV cables are plugged into my TV and into my VCR properly, yet when I switch the TV source to AV, it says "weak or no signal." I don't know why. Please help.

    It was a faulty VCR. Never mind. Please disregard my question.

A couple of possibilities. First a faulty cable or socket on either the TV or VCR. Next the VCR is plugged into the wrong AV connection.

SOURCE: how to associate the av sound with the HD video out

DVI connections do not carry sound. The only feasible way to get sound from the PS3 is through a standard twin phono-phono lead (red & white RCA)

SOURCE: Problem with AV Input and TV signal distorted but i know signals are fine from source

change devices to other ports, if you are sure some ports are not working properly then you will need to replace the mainboard.

SOURCE: 50" Vizio Plasma reads "No Signal" on all inputs?

Well, your TV is still under warranty. That's the good part.
The only thing I can recommend without voiding the warranty is leaving the TV unplugged for 30min. That way, the TV can reset itself and hopefully correct the problem.

If that doesn't solve the problem, it's time to use the VIZIO warranty.
Here's contact info if you need it.

How do I hook up my Toshiba DVD player to my old Daewoo Tv /vcr combo


what inputs does the old Daewood / VCR combo use is it RCA and Video cable on an AV input? How many Av inputs are there in TV ? Does the DVD player have AV out audio out (Yellow) RCA (Red and White). If you do not have enough AV inputs on the Tv use an AV switch box . and Switch two AV RCA inputs /DVD and VCR and into one output to the TV. You may be able to feed the AV out RCA out into the VCR AV in and switch the input on the VCR.

We have a digital tv but an anologue vcr so we bought a strong srt 5430 so we can record through our vcr but are having trouble conecting the vcr and set top box


You need a cable to go between the yellow (picture), red and white (sound) sockets on the strong to the VCR.

Those cables will connect to one of the VCRs AV inputs. You then need to use the VCR remote control to switch from the now defunct analogue tuner to the Line or AV input. Put your TV on the channel you use to watch video tapes. Switch on the Strong receiver. Do the switch to the Line or AV input on the VCR. When your VCR is on the correct input then you will see the picture from the Strong receiver on the TV. You can confirm it is the correct source by displaying the Strong's EPG.

When you come to make recordings, the Strong will need to be left on the channel that you want to tape. If your TV already has an aerial feed and isn't relying on the strong for its signal then you can watch another channel on TV.

32" samsung hdtv flat panel: switches when you don't want it from tv to av/pc or av to tv/pc.


Sometimes, TVs will switch to a new input when they sense a new signal on the new input. So if you're watching TV and someone turns on the AV device (or makes a change that alters or starts a video signal), the TV may switch over to that signal. This is a function of the TV. Some TVs allow you to disable this function, others do not. I looked in the manual and didn't notice where this could be enabled or disabled. If you want to only watch one source, make sure the other sources are turned off.

Can I set up my older VCR to this TV? If yes how do I get it to work?


Hello
You can surlely connect this TV to your VCR, if the VCR has AV output with it at its rear side. Most VCRs will have this video out from it. Just connect this video out connection to your LGs audio video connection by using an audio video cable. This cable will be of three conductor type and can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart shops at your town. Choose a best quality one, when you buy it. After connectiing this cable with corresponding video IN sockets at the TV, switch ON both the devices and select AV2 or AV1 with the help of remote AV source button. The AV cable will have three conductors, a flat type cable haveing red, white and yellow colured RCA pint at both end. Coincide these colours to both TV and VCR when connecting it. That is all, and you can play your favourite video tapes by VCR.

I just bought a Samsun Series 4+ / 440 / 450 (on the users manual lol) but when i try to hook up my DTV or PS3 using an AV cable, nothing shows up. In the Sources, it shows "AV" but when i select...


is that the av channel? if so, how do you know your getting a signal from the ps3? try hooking the ps3 up to something else to make sure you have a signal coming out of that cable (this is where you have to start) if you have another device like a DVD player, or VCR, hook that up to the AV input (or channel one as you say). if you get a picture from those devices, the problem is your ps3 not sending the signals to the tv. sorry I can't be more helpful, but that's my guess

How to connect motorola cable box to samsung dvd/vcr model vr375 to a Westinghouse hdtv with 2 hdmi connections


The DVD-VR375 does not have an HDMI input. The connection should be:
• RED WHITE & YELLOW CABLE from your cable box (AV OUT) should connect to the DVD-VR375 (AV IN 1). Set the DVD-VR375 to AV 1 using the INPUT SEL. button.
• Next, connect an HDMI cable from the DVD-VR375 (HDMI OUT) to the TV (HDMI IN). Set the TV to the proper source.
This connection would allow the recorder to work as a pass through and will let you record TV programs as well as watch your cable channels.

Hope this helps!

Zenith TV has no place for yellow, red, white composite plugs


This TV doesn't have an AV input, so there are no input jacks other than the antenna connector. If you want to connect a device that has only AV outputs (your red, white and yellow plug) you will need an RF converter. This will take the AV signals and convert them to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can tune in on the set.

But since you don't seem interested in spending any money, you'll probably not like to hear that the converter runs around $15 most places. Take heart, there is an alternative. Find a VCR (if you don't have one already) that has an RF output. Many of the the newer DVD/VCR combos only have AV outputs. You're looking for one that has an "out to TV" threaded connector on the back. These units already have an RF converter built in. Connect your AV plugs to the line in jacks on the VCR and switch to that input, and you can use your video game or DVD player through the VCR.

I am not conversant with VCRs sold in the United states, but - a VCR is a VCR is a VCR. So, can i suggest an alternate solution to your problem? Why not use the AV out sockets of your VCR and hook them to the AV IN sockets of your TV? In this manner, you you also get a better image. And of course, you feed In the signal source (Antenna, cable Box, etc) directly to the TV, and use your remote to switch to AV mode whenever you desire to watch movies or Tape.
