Samsung CXD2512 TV/VCR Combo...Cannot hook up DVD player

I do not have a remote for this TV/VCR. The combo has two A/V inputs both on the front and back. I've tried to attach a DVD player utilizing a triple RCA cable...the one with Red/White/Yellow RCA jacks. Since the combo only allows Mono connectivity I attached the Yellow and White RCA jacks to the Yellow RCA video input and the White RCA audio input...trying both the front and back. When I turn the DVD player on and put the TV/VCR to channels 3 or 4 I get nothing but static. Oh I forgot to mention I have a coax connection on the back for cable...I've tried connecting the DVD player with the coax attached and removed...doesn't matter because either way all I get is static. Someone recommended too try a RCA stereo to mono Y connector, honestly I don't see how this would help since I'm only attaching two RCA jack now and nothing is working. It's not like the Red RCA jack that I am not attaching knows it's not being attached. Therefore it should work with the triple cable that comes with all DVD players'd think! I keep thinking that the solution is going to involve a setting on the TV...that I cannot access because I have no remote control. Hopefully this is not the case. If anyone has solved this problem or has a solution I'd greatly appreciate it. Many thanks, Locrian

    I have the same problem: I do not have a remote for the TV, but I have connected the white and yellow cords FROM the DVD to the TV and can not get the DVD player to work. Any suggestions would be fantastic! It's quite cumbersome to switch out TVs every time we want to watch a movie!

    Thank you in advance!

    Yes, the point has definitely been missed.

    I too have had no success with any of the numerous remotes that I've tried, both universal and RCA.

    I think you're missing the point . . .neither poster has a remote for the unit. I can only speak for myself, but no universal remote that I have tried, including RCA remotes, operate effectively for this unit, specifically the TV/VCR button.

We also don't have a remote. We hooked a DVD/VCR combo to the Samsung combo by attaching the cable from the cable line to the DVD player and an additional cable from DVD to TV and it used to work but after we lost the control, the DVD can only be listened to but not seen. The VHS from the DVD player works perfectly though.

When we had the remote (before connecting the other combo) we used line-in to see a DVD or VHS using the yellow red and white cables from the Samsung to the other player.

You have to hit the vcr/tv button on the remote. there is a separate line that works for games and dvd devices.

Sylvania (SRD3900) DVD Player / VCR Combo i can't seem to plug in the red/white/yellow cables into the right places directly to my old toshiba tv to play either tapes or dvds. can you instruct me? thanks.

Greetings - It's very simple so I'll show you how and then I think it may be another problem (nothing broken).


You need to plug the corresponding color cables into to outputs on your player I've circled above and then into the corresponding inputs on the TV. You've probably done this correctly.
PLUS - You have to, using the remote for the player, set the source to either DVD or VCR and then you have to, finally, on your TV set the input (with the remote) to what is called probably VIDEO or VIDEO1. If there is still nothing on the screen keep (with the DVD or Tape playing) hitting the TV remote input button until you see an image or you've come around to where you started.

Unless something is broken (unlikely) you should be able to watch DVD's or Tapes depending on what input you select on the player.

If it's not working you've somehow missed a step or the Video input on the TV is called something else. If that happens come back here and give the player AND TV brand/model info and someone will be able resolve your problem.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya.

I'm getting no output to the tv and I did triple check the connections. I'm using basic RCA cables.

I had the same problem myself. To fix it,I went into the menu for my Television set and changed the setting to VCR/DVD ... then I used the remote for the LG combo and changed that setting to AVI 1 using the 'input' button under the #9. It would not show on the front of my LG combo but did show on the TV screen. The problem is that your combo and television are not communicating with one another,like speaking 2 different languages.

On the back of combo, use the side that says DVD and VCR out. Connect red, white and yellow cables from the output on the combo to the input on the tv. Use the tv remote and switch input of tv to where you plugged it in.

Can't record tv shows

Output of combo to input of TV, and you need the cable / antenna attached to the combo to record what you want to see.
