Cable TV connection

New home where cable TV jacks were not connected. Using the coaxle cable installed during construction, I added screw on F connectors and was able to receive basic service to each of the TV's. However, some of the channels are not coming in clearly....different channels in different rooms. Any thoughts as to why?

Hi, A couple of possibilities: 1. Line loss, some of the cables might be too long, shorted, loose ground, not connected right; 2. Splitter - passive splitter, you might be better off using a distribution amplifies (with gain control pref); 3. RFI - TV interference from external sources. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Panasonic SC-HT730 Green picture when showing DVD's

The DVD player of this system will output to a TV on either composite (Yellow jack), component (RGB jacks) and S-Video (a small round jack that looks like a mouse or keyboard connector) jack. Since the tint is off, I would guess that you're using the more desirable component or even the S-video jack. Try removing & re-seating the plugs into the jacks at the DVD and at the TV; then check the picture color. If it still is wrong, try using a different cable type - use a standard video cable between the yellow jacks on both the TV and DVD. You may need to set the TV input to reflect the use of the new jack - and possibly set the DVD to 480i or Interlaced if you used the Progressive Scan or 480P output when using component RGB video cables (Red, Green & Blue). Check for correct color.

Chances are the connection got dirty and caused the color issue - or less likely, the cable or even less likely - the DVD output has failed.

Good luck!

Wiring diagram for a Samsung Jet S800 Video Out cable

to connect it to TVs, if you already have the cable let us say 3.5 mm jack to rca jacks, yellow is usually for videos, white and red are for sounds or output of sounds from your mobile to your tv. connect the cables to your tv and the phone will ask you automatically whether for headset or for video. select video, but first configure your settings for tv output under settings, phone settings, tv out.

to connect your phone to a home theater, with your cable, insert the 3.5 mm jack to your phone, connect the red and white to input speakers for your home theater. 
if you are asking on how to conver 3.5mm to rca, you need an adapter most probably, there are lots of customized cables now in the market now adays, you need a 3.5mm jack to rca male connectors. or you may use a female 3.5mm jack to 3 rca cables.
if you are planning to do this on your own, check the links.

Ibought samsung surround sound and hooked it to the tv,but it only works when i play can i connect to my tv so i can surround sound from tv or drem box

connect audio cables from the audio out jacks on your tv to the audio in jacks on your samsung surround. they may be labeled video 1,2 or aux. if your using a cable box the cable box may have optical or digital input jacks. your samsung surround should have a digital in jack which requires an optical cable.

My Akai LCT42Z6TM TV does not have a coaxle

A converter box isn't going to fix this problem.
Your TV is a Monitor. It doesn't have a built in tuner. That's why it doesn't have a Cable/Ant coaxial port.
The TV needs a cable box for tuning or some other outside source box for receiving signals.

Are you using cable from the cable company or an antenna for reception?

You can try using an rf modulator to convert the coax signal into one that you connect to the tv using RCA jacks. I believe that model has one source on it for AV. Most stores carry these and they are relatively inexpensive.

Wiring with a sattelite receiver and new Samsung TV

Nope RamaTheMan - you are incorrect! No way to get an actual surroundsound from your TV on this turd - this came straight from the Samsung FAQ -

"You cannot get surround sound from your television. On the other hand, if your television has audio output jacks you can connect your TV or Set Top Box to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound (that is, sound from the left and right speakers of your Home Theater System only).
To connect your TV or STB audio output jacks to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Connect the Audio Out jacks on your TV to the External Audio Input jacks on the back of your Home Theater System. The External Audio Input connectors are typically labeled AUX IN. Note: There are usually two pairs of Audio Input jacks, AUX 1 and AUX 2. Each pair has a jack for the left audio input and the right audio input. Often, there are two Video AUX IN jacks as well. You can plug the audio cables into either audio AUX 1 or AUX 2. See the following diagram.
  1. Turn on your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Press the Function Button on the front panel of your Home Theater System until the display on your Home Theater System shows AUX 1 or AUX 2.
For advanced installation, if you are using a High Def STB, you can connect an OPTICAL connection from the STB to the HTS. This is a specified cable that must be purchased separately.
In either instance, you must then set the HTS to its auxiliary input. (i.e AUX 1, AUX 2, DIGITAL IN) in order to get the sound from the HTS.
Note: If your television does not have Audio Out jacks, you may be able to get stereo sound by attaching the Audio Out jacks on your VCR to either the AUX 1 or AUX 2 audio inputs on your Home Theater System. If you attach your VCR to AUX 1 or AUX 2, you will have to tune your television to channel 3 or 4, and then tune to the station you want to watch on your VCR."

Hook up vcr

yes, you need to use an Audio/Video cable (red, white, yellow) to hook to the TV. I've never seen a VCR that doesn't have coax connectors for the antenna input and TV ouput, but maybe the new ones are starting to leave that out. Normally, you run the antenna or cable coax into the VCR's input, then run another coax from the VCR output to the TV's input (or use an A/V cable)
