Re: no display

Press the DVD button on the Philips remote. Make sure the yellow part of the RCA cable is plugged into Output/CVBS/Out on the back of the Philips, and that it is plugged into a yellow input of your TV. Change your TV channel to Av1, av2, video 1, video 2, aux, aux 2, or whatever the correct video channel is on your TV. Then press setup - you will get your picture.
In order for the coax connection to work on Ch. 3 of your TV, you will have to get an additional piece of equipment - an RF modulator. It's better just to stick with the RCA red, yellow, white cables.

I'm trying to hook up my DVD player to my TV but my TV doesn't have a yellow jack only red and black


If your TV doesn't have a Video IN jack (Yellow) then you would have to attach your dvd by antenna (Coaxial) cable. What does the DVD have on the back ? EG: Video Out is Yellow, Red is Right Audio, White is Left Audio. If your DVD has Ant in & Ant Out you can use a coaxial cable from Ant out to your tv's antenna In socket and put your antenna cable (from your wall socket) to Ant in on the dvd. Turn on the dvd and put your tv on a blank station and tune your tv till you see the dvd screen . lock it in and that becomes your DVD channel to watch your dvd's.

Hope this is some help.

How can i hook my dvd player to my flat screen to watch a movie that we all can see

Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

On our Durabrand DVD/Vcr Combo, I get picture, but no sound..I'm using a S video as conectors!

S video connector is used only for video, you need to connect the audio separately via the RCA audio connectors or via digital coaxial or optical connector.

You can read more on S video standard here:

Also see the related topics on audio, maybe you should consult the user manuals for your dvd unit and the amplifier that you use to get more info, but normally the sound can be connected via these connectors on the rear panel of dvd units:

- main left and right analog signal out RCA connectors (2 channel stereo signal - amplifier set to analog signal)

- main left and right, sub, center, surround left and right analog signal out connectors (multichannel surround signal - amplifier set to analog signal)

- coaxial digital signal out RCA connector (a single cable that takes the stereo or surround signal to the amplifier in a coded digital form - you need to set the amplifier to the digital signal mode to enable this kind of signal)

- optical digital signal out connector (same as the coaxial digital output, the difference is that the signal is in the form of light pulses instead of electrical pulses - the amplifier should be set to the digital signal mode as well)

Hope this helps somehow - if it doesn't, post me some feedback, perhaps a brief description of the units that you want to interconnect...

What sort of cable should be used to hook up my koss ks4127 to my viewsonic HD TV?

You have three choices for video. You can use a standard composite connection via an RCA patch cable (yellow) or an S-Video cable which will give you a slightly better picture than the RCA cable. You could also use the RGB connection but this requires a special three-cable connection (not worth the hassle). For audio you can just use the standard RCA (white/red) patch cables unless you want to listen to 5.1 which will require a Digital Audio Coaxial cable.

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Need an RCA Adapter for a TOSHIBA D-VR610KU

If the RF Modulator will convert a coaxial signal to an RCA output signal, fine however, you still need a tuner to select the channel on the TV you want to record. This unit is primarily for dubbing or copying DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD. There is no tuner in the unit to get the cable signal. Try hooking up an additional VCR, that probably has a tuner in it and use the RCA out of the 2nd unit to the RCA in of the Toshiba. Hook the coax to the input coax jack of the 2nd then RCA out to RCA in of the Toshiba. Choose what channell you want to record on the 2nd unit. You may have to choose Auxillary mode on the toshiba the press instant record on the Toshiba. Again, this unit is a Player or Dubber. Not designed to record TV shows without an external tuner. I hope this helps. If you use a 2nd VCR just to get the TV Signal, you won't need the modulator.

Video channel

Dear Gonedeep2,
Are you saying the DVD/VCR player does not have a coaxial socket?
Does your TV have RCA sockets to match the DVD/VCR player.
(ie. red and white for audio and yellow for video signals).

Connecting coaxial cable to dvd-v9700

I was thinking of using the RF modulator box, but in this case, it might not work, since signal should be coming from the cable box. What I dont know if there is a converter for signal from a coaxial cable to an RCA. However, the only way to connect is via RCA.

Not able to scan stations

I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork???
directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means:
A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!!
If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you.
Don't waste your time on directv.
If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS.
Good luck!

Digital audio problems

Try using a different cable for starters, regular rca, another optical or coaxial. If the optical works, then its a cable problem. If the coaxial works(and another optical doesnt), then its a cable/jack problem. If the RCA works(and the rest don't), then its a problem with the digital output. Try blowing into the holes, and if nothing works and you can't find any other advice, contact Pioneer. Good luck
