Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

There aren't any "input source" buttons on my RCA TV (older model maybe 10 years) but there are different inputs on the back. RCA plug types inputs 1 & 2 (red, white an yellow connections. Also a coaxial connection and that's where my dish is connected to. Can't change inputs to view new DVD player connected by RCA plugs onto input 1. The remote doesn't seem to be able to change the input either. Perhaps the remote needs to be reset although it is an RCA remote. Thanks Don Silva

Please press channel preset button repeatedly in count down manner and after channel 1 there would be AV1 and AV2.

That is AV selection system in old models.

Hit "add a comment" button and intimate exact model of your TV to look for more info.
Thanks.

Can not get a signal to my rca tv model led 32c45rqd


hmmm seems like the signal board is having issues or the cable your using is not good try having the cables or any type of cable replaced if HDMI or another source make sure the right input source is selected by changing the tv's input source (EG press the input button on the remote or "source" button)

Isn't this just a simple hookup? What am I not doing?


You either need to change the input source. Currently the source is TV, depending on how you connected the DVD player to the TV, it should be composite (A/V), component video or HDMI. (S-video is also a possibility. Very few DVD players are connected on the RF (coax) input which might be channel 3 or 4 without having a converter between the DVD player and the TV.)

Look on your TV remote for a button marked Source or Input. You may also find this button on the TV. (On some TVs, this may also be accessed through the menus.)

How did you connect the TV and the DVD player? If your audio and video were connected via three RCA plugs (yellow, red, white) on each end, then use the composite video input. If you used cables with 3 RCA plugs for video (yellow, green, blue) and 2 for audio (red/white), then switch to the component input. If you used HDMI which carries audio and video in one cable (with rectangular ends), then use the HDMI input.

Some older TVs only have the Source/Input button on their original remote. Not all universal replacement remotes have this button, you may need a different remote. Those that do may require you to try additional codes for your TV manufacturer to enable the button. (The on./off buttons often will work with more of the codes for a brand.) The ones that can be programmed via a USB connection to a computer are most likely to support the function. Please add a comment with the type of TV for additional help with this.

I hope this helps.

I cant figure out how to put the tv on video 1


With the remote in TV mode, the input button on the remote should change the source (TV, AV1, etc. depending on the TV).

If the input button doesn't work, try a different code for your TV manufacturer. A code that controls the basic functions of the remote may not control the full set of functions of the TV. For some TVs, you can change the source from within the Menu. (It depends on the TV. I didn't notice if there was a Menu button that will open the TV menu on the RCA RCU600M.)

If none of the codes work, check if your TV has a Source or Input button on the unit. See if that button works.

If you have a different remote, please indicate the model.

I hope this helps.

Having trouble getting tv set up. It has on the screan No Signal


When a TV says "no signal" it means it cannot find a video sync present on the input which is currently selected. Knowing your TV Manufacturer and model would help tremendously, as would knowing what it is hooked up to.
For starters, it could be one of a few things:
  • It is selected to an input to which there is no source connected [SOLUTION] make sure the TV is set to view the correct input (INPUT or SOURCE) button.
  • The cable between the source and the TV is bad, or the plugs are not properly seated at both ends of the cable [SOLUTION] Make sure that BOTH ends of the cable are pushed all the way in, and securely seated. If that doesn't work, try replacing the cable with a different one
  • You have the cables connected incorrectly (for example, a composite video signal (yellow) will fit into a left or right audio connector (red or white). If you are plugging in by reaching around but can't see, this could be a problem. I have also seen people plug video inputs into outputs (many TVs have a video loop out, so if you plug something IN to that you aren't going to get picture. [SOLUTION] Make sure you physically inspect the inputs on the TV and outputs on the source
  • It is trying to use it's internal tuner (if it has a digital tuner) and there is no cable or antenna feed attached [SOLUTION] make sure the TV is set to view the correct input (INPUT or SOURCE) button.
  • The source you are trying to watch (DVD player, etc) is not turned on [SOLUTION] verify that the source is plugged in and outputting video
  • The TV is defective. [SOLUTION] take it back . . . its a lemon.

Samsung UN46D6300 TV not in Logitec Harmony 700 remote database. Need IR code/s to enable controls (especially TV input source selection). Learning mode was only partially successful for power, volume...


When i went into the Harmony software, your TV did come up. If these codes aren't working try a different model Samsung (like UN46D6000). All new Samsungs use the same code set. If this still doesn't help, go to "Devices"->"Settings"->"Adjust Inputs"->"Method 3". Follow the directions from there. Something else that may help is Samsung calls it the "Source" button, Logitech calls it "Input x".

Must hookup DVD-VR375to tv,cablevision box & MSNtv2.


Here's How:
  1. The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD Recorder and the TV.
  2. If you have an older TV that only accepts RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality) option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
  3. If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
  4. To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
  5. To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
  6. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
  7. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
  8. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
  9. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
  10. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
  11. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

Hi hula,

If it's an older TV it's possible that it did not have RCA inputs (composite video inputs). If it's not on the back, often it's in the front but hidden behind a plastic panel that opens down to reveal the input and perhaps a few more buttons.

Is there an "Input" button on the remote or on the front panel? If yes, then the video input is there somewhere, maybe hidden behind a door.

If all you see is one screw looking connector on the back where the antenna or cable TV goes to, then you have an older TV without a video input. You can still use a gizmo called an RF modulator to put the signal on TV channel 3 or 4. They cost from $10 to $20. You'll lose the really good DVD quality, but the quality will still be very good and still let you use your TV.

Hope that helps,

Receiver to tv hook-up


Is this a Pioneer receiver? They have the prefix of VSX but I can not locate that model on Pioneers website. It could be because it is an older model and no service information is on the website for receivers older than about 5 years old.

To answer your question I need more information. Do you want to connect the video switching of the receiver to the TV or just want the sound of the TV to go to the receiver? I would also need to know what type of video devices you want to connect and what type of inputs and outputs your TV has.

Most TV's have at least a composite video input, that is the most common type. it is a yellow RCA jack on the back of the TV and will be listed as an "input". That is what would be connected to the video output jack (yellow RCA) of the receiver from the TV for video switching. Then you need video sources connected to the video inputs of the receiver to go to the TV. You also need to connect the audio RCA cables from the video devices to the receiver on the proper video inputs that you have connected. Each video input for composite or S-video has audio RCA jacks (red and white) inputs so you can hear the sound of your video device on the receiver.

If you only want to play the sound from your TV on the recevier, you can use the audio output RCA jacks on the TV and connect them to an audio input of the receiver. This is a very simple way of using the receiver for all the different devices connected to the TV without having to connect everything to the receiver and then always having to have the receiver on any time you watch TV. The audio RCA jacks are always the red and white jacks. you just need to make sure you are using the output jacks of the TV and they are connected to an input jack on the receiver. Then you must switch the receiver to what ever input you just connected the TV to, like the "Video 1" or "Video 2" or maybe "Aux" input.

I hope this helps, but you didn't give much information on how you wanted to connect them.

A good rating would be appreciated if you found this free information helpful.

Let me know if you need any more help,

Dave
