Question about Samsung TX-R2678WH 26" TV

Component cables on HDTV not working

I installed component cables (red, gree, and blue) from a Phillips DVD player (DVD622) to a Samsung TX-R2678WH (HDTV) along with RCA outputs for audio. Turned the TV on and changed the source on the TV to component1 and no signal was found, so I switched the cables to component#2 to obtain the same results on the TV.
I have tried to unplug the TV and DVD to see if that did anything, no results. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

Have you tried hooking a different video source upto to the tv to make sure it is not the dvd player that is not giving a signal to the tv?  Like an Xbox 360 or anything else with component output.

How do i put it to play dvd player


  • Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.

  • 2

    Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


  • Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

  • 4

    Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.

  • 5

    Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.

    How do I hook up the DVD/VCR to cable box and Vizio HDTV?


    both should be hooked directly to tv

    VCR side of combo should be hooked up with composite video(yellow, red, white wires) to video 1 input

    DVD side of combo should be hooked up component video (red, blue, green wires and red white for sound)

    cable box should be hooked up HDMI or component to TV if HD or composite video if SD

    hope this helps

    good luck

    How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

    Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


    Things You'll Need:

    * Component cables

    Instructions


    Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


    Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


    Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

    Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


    Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


    Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

    Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


    Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


    Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


    Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


    Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


    Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

    Tips & Warnings

    You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

    You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


    Hope it helped.

    Have a nice day...

    Hook up of dvd to tv


    hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

    simplify- blue green red= component
    red white yellow=composite

    *wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

    then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

    A/V Signal Outout through Onkyo TX-SR705


    Are you trying to record cable programming with your DVD recorder? If so, you might want to try using component cable as HDMI does have a copy protection circuit that might be preventing your recorder from receiving the image. Just try to connect the cable box component (RED/GREEN/BLUE) cable to your DVD recorder. If that doesn't work, then try to change everything over to component cables. HDMI is a great cable to use but it the only required to display 1080p images and the only current source that uses 1080p is a bluray player. Everything else, such as your cable box and DVD recorder is 1080i and component cables are perfect for it.

    DVD plays only in black and white


    Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

    HDTV:
    Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

    DVD:
    Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.
