Hi, If your TV has only an F input connector, then chances are that it can only accept an RF (TV/Cable) signal. On the other hand your video/signal source puts out a composite video signal (presumably with audio likewise). What you need is an interface converter or more commonly called "RF Box or RF Modulator". This is a device that embeds your audio/video signal into an RF signal transmitting at a TV channel (commonly 3 or 4). These devices are commercially available. You have to specify whether stereo or mono and what color system is being used in your country such as NTSC, PAL, Secam etc. A fine example is RadioShack's RF Modulator Model: 15-2526, Catalog #: 15-2526 (http://www.radioshack.com). A work around is to use an old VCR where you can plug into its RCA Audio/Video INput your signal source and connect its RF out to the F connector of your TV via a short RG59 Coaxial cable terminated both ends with FP-5 connectors.. You have to select either 3 or 4 (as the case may be) in your TV and set your VCR to VTR operations. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have a Nikkai S-VIDEO & STEREO PHONO to SCART connecting my tv to BOSE 321, yet the picture is coming through in monochrome. Should i have bought a different connector?


Monochrome means that the TV's input is set to composite and not S-video. This is common with Panasonic TVs. Have a look to see if there's an option to change the preference from composite to S-Video. That will sort the problem.

I', attempting to connect a Roku player. I need to bring up the "source button". My control says "not connected". can you help?


Because you have a non-HD tv you will have to use the Composite connector (the yellow one) and the audio ones in line with it (the red and white ones). So just use a cable like http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-RCA3N1HQ6-Composite-Video-Stereo/dp/B00066HSJE to connect it as explained in the manual at page 24 - 25. Once the cable has been connected just press the Source button (clearly labeled as that) on the remote to select the correct input - VIDEO. If you no longer have the manual get it from here http://www.4shared.com/document/UIImEmie/Manual_AKAI_PDP4294.html

How to connect samsung dvd to samsung tv


Follow these steps: Component Video Connection 1. Get a component video cable. This cable has 3 sets of connectors, one each for the red, blue and green color signals.
2 Match the connectors to the appropriate video output jacks on the DVD player. Component video outputs will normally be labeled Cr/Cb/Cy. The Cy output jack is matched to green, Cr to red and Cb to blue.
3 Run the cable from DVD player to the TV. Most TV connections are made from the back panel, but this may vary.
4 Match the connectors to the appropriate video input jacks on the TV.
If using S-Video Connection
1 Get an S-video cable. This cable has a single round connector with 4 pins.
2 Attach one end of the S-video cable to the S-video output jack on the DVD player.
3 Attach the other end to the S-video input jack on the TV.
Composite Video Connection 1 Get a composite video cable. These types of cables are frequently bundled with two-channel audio cables. Composite video cables are tipped with yellow plugs.
2 Plug one end of the composite video cable into the composite video output jack on your DVD player.
3 Plug the other end into the composite video input jack on your TV.

ShubhangiWe try to connect CD player with Samsung LCD TV. CD Player is having Three Component Yellow, Red,White. It dont have Blue and green components.What to do ???


Hi, Component input connectors use the colour convention
Green = Y (luminance signal)
Red = Pr or Cr (Red colour difference signal)
Blue = Pb or Cb (Blue colour diffrence signal)

Composite input connectors use the colour convention
Yellow = CVBS (composite video, blanking, sync)
Red = Audio Right
White = Audio Left

for compatibility both units will need to have matching colours. note the component inputs do not have audio and as such will also have a set of red & white connectors for use with the audio signals too ( rule of thumb Component = 5 connectors, composite=3 connectors)

How to connect a dvd player to lcd tv


Your DVD player's output is Composite Video (the yellow connector) plus stereo audio (the red and white connectors, for right and left audio)

The inputs on your TV are for Component Video, which splits the video signal into three cables (Y for brightness, Pb and Pr for blue and red, respectively)

Check your TV to see if it has a composite input (single yellow connector, labeled "video" or "composite")

And be sure to let me know if this helps!

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?


NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.

I'm a senior citizen and bought a very simple DVD Player by you, but can't get it connected correctly. I am not a stupid person but beginning to feel like one. Please HELP>


This player has the typical composite and component TV connections. If you have an older standard TV, you will need a composite to RF TV adaptor. If you have a newer widescreen HD Television, you should be able to connect the composite or component cables to it directly Composite is the 3 video cable bundle (Red, Green, Blue), and composite is the yellow single connection. Audio connects via the standard white/red connectors. If your TV is newer and supports multiple inputs, make sure you can switch to the input you are connected to via the TV remote! Check your manuals.

Nothing appears on my LCD TV display

1 Ensure the LCD TV display is turned on.
2 Verify that all the cables are properly connected to the LCD TV
display, including the power cable.
3 Check to see if there is a blue or amber light on the lower,
right-hand corner of the LCD TV display. A blue light indicates
the LCD TV display is on. An amber light means the LCD TV
display is in power save mode.
4 Ensure the proper source is selected in the Input Select menu.
See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information.
5 Reconnect any devices that are currently connected to the LCD
TV display. If you are using multiple devices, connect and test
one device at a time.
6 Connect another device that you know is working properly.
7 Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset.

Problem Possible Solution No sound

1 Ensure mute is not turned on. Pressing the Mute button on
the remote control turns the mute function on and off.
2 If only certain LCD TV channels do not have sound, then you
need to correct the Input Select menu in the TV Menu (see
"Input Select Menu" on page 24).
3 Verify that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the
audio input connectors on your LCD TV display and audio
output connectors on your devices. Ensure that the cable colors
match the connectors colors.
4 Also, ensure that the audio cables are connected to the same
row as the video cables. See "About Your LCD TV Display" on
page 5 for the location of the connectors.
5 Reconnect the device using the same type of connector. For
example, if you are using the composite connector on the
bottom, try connecting the device to the composite connector
on the side of the LCD TV display. See "About Your LCD TV
Display" on page 5 for the location of the connectors.
After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV
Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more
information.
6 Connect the device using a different connector. For example,
if you are experiencing the problem using a composite
connector, try using the component connector.
NOTE: To connect to a different connector, you need the
appropriate cables for that connector. See your device
documentation for a list of supported connections.
After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV
Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more
information.
7 Test the device on a different TV.

Hi Lylell, Your LG Studioworks 221U Monitor's input uses either a D-Sub which is a standard 15 pin vga cable or a 13W3C cable which is for cad workstations. On the other hand the output of your Dish Network receiver is either RCA-type audio/video or an S-video output. Since all are not directly compatible you would need something in between and not just cables. Technically what you need is to convert composite video output to d-sub 15 pin video input. A fine example is COMP2VGA by www.startech.com originally designed for gamers. There are some in the market that are simple connector to connector such as in http://www.trianglecables.com/1footvgadbma.html, please don't bother since it has been known not to work. To complete the setup, you would need a stereo amp/speaker pair for the audio out of your receiver. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.
