Re: my tv

Shut off DVD (using the power button and not standby) and turn it back on while having the TV on. it might "auto-sense" it.

How do I hook up DVD player

Liz,, most DVD players come with RED, Yellow, White cables. on back of ur DVD player find the holes with the matching colors. and insert cables, now go to ur TV , on the back you should see some of the same colors plugins ,.once u have done that . put in a DVD and hit play. now go to the input/source button on ur TV or remote and push it . u might see a drop down menu if u do highlight the AV or Video 1 or 2 or 3 till u get a picture. when finished u will have to hit the input button and go Back to where u were in order to watch what u had it on before. NOW if u have a Blu Ray DVD player all u need is the HDMI cable , find the HDMI output onback of player and on the TV find the same. your tv might have 3 or so HDMI inputs ,, any will work. as before put in a movie, use ur remote , input button and find the HDMI on the menu and high light it. .

Hook up to dvd player

There are more than two methods of hooking up the DVD player.
1) Get a 5pin component cable with Red, Green & Blue pins. Connect the DVD Player's RGB out pins to the TV's RGB in socket. This will take care of the picture. Then for sound you will need the secondbobhifi_4.jpg set of Red & White cable. Connect the Red & White pins to the DVD players audio out socket (Red for right channel and White for Left channel ). The other end of the cable you can connect to the Red & White socket next to the RGB socket where you have connected the Video. Play a DVD and scroll through the inputs slowly. You will see the picture appear on one of your selections.

How do I connect the DVD player to my tv? My last DVD player had a place on the back to be able to hook in the cable along with the color wires. This DVD player does not have a place to hook in the...

What colour wires does the new dvd player have? The colours correspond with the socket that you plug them into. If your new dvd player only has yellow red and white cables then that is all you need. if they are red blue and green then you will also need to plug the appropriate audio cable into the dvd player. If you need more help please tell me the model of dvd player and the model of tv

Im having problems hooking up thru vcr/dvd player


The correct setup depends on whether you have a cable/satellite receiver and whether you want to record to and playback from the VCR. If you are using a cable/satellite receiver, this needs to be connected to both the TV and the DVD/VCR if you want to record. The DVD then needs to be connected to the TV via the video and audio out sockets on the back of the DVD/VCR for playback.

I can let you know exactly which connections to use and where they should all go, but I need to know the following details as otherwise I don't know which sockets/connect you have available.

1. Brand and model number of TV
2. Brand and model number of DVD/VCR
3. Brand and model number of any cable/satellite receiver if you are using one.

Please confirm these details and I will try to assist you further.

How do i hook my dvd player to my tv? i have no manual to show me where to plug the wires into the back of my tv.i have a proscan 32LB30Q LCD

Hello pebbles12137,

This depends on what you want to do SD or HD

First if you just want to connect for SD only

Here are Three ways:

1) connect the coaxial cable to the DVD player F-connector (sliver screw connector) and the to the TV's Antenna in F-connector.

2) connect the yellow, red and white RCA connector end wires to the yellow, red, and white RCA Jacks of the TV Yellow (video in), Red (Right Audio in), White (Left Audio in) do the same for the other end into the DVD player (Best SD Method)

3) connect the svideo cable into the s-video socket of the TV and the other end to the s-video socket of the DVD player

For HD, Here are the connection methods:

1) Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI in of the TV (HDMI1)and the other end of the HDMI cable into the DVD player. (best HD method)

2) connect the Component video cable (RGB) into the RGB sockets of the TV (should be marked as Component 1) and connect the other end to the DVD player (using this method you will have to connect the Red and White audio cables to the audio input jacks of the TV from the audio out of the DVD player)

These are the SD and HD methods.

I would suggest using the HDMI cables only, its the best choice and the simplest.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Dvd is grainy picture

You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!

DVD cables

You have to plug your DVD cables into the "input" connectors on your tv. Input audio and input video. Also there is either a switch on the back of your tv or in your menu where you have to choose "component video". Or it might be labled Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc. You might have both a switch on your TV and a choice in your menu. If so, both have to be set to "component Video. Sometimes on the back of your set, the switch is not labeled. It just has "arrowed" lines coming from the different switch positions and leading to the "outputs and inputs" on the back of the set. Set the switch so that the lines lead to the red, blue and green INPUTS on the back of your set. Your problem is not serious. It is just a matter of "telling" your TV that you are using "component video". Component video is when you are using the red, blue, and green inputs. It is also possible that your DVD has another output besides "component out" and also has a switch. Make sure this switch on the back of your DVD is in the "component OUT" position. Your DVD might also have a connector on the back that looks like connectors on the back of VCR's and most TVs. This is an "F" connector and the cable has to be screwed on. It's just like a cable tv cable. Screw a cable into the "out to tv" on the back of your DVD and screw the other end of the cable into the "RF" INPUT (or cable input) connector on the back of your tv. Be sure to look ALL through your TV menu and DVD menu. The DVD sets to "component OUT" and the TV sets to "component IN". Hope this helps.

Progressive scan

Approach 1: Try unplugging the DVD player from the wall for an hour, then plug it back in. It may or may not reset to the factory default settings, which might put it back to "interlaced" output.

Approach 2: When a DVD player is switched to progressive scan, it uses outputs different from the coax cable "TV out" and the COMPOSITE outputs (often yellow, white and red RCA jacks. If you have the proper cables, you can connect them to both the DVD player and the TV, then cycle through the AKAI TV's "source" settings to switch the TV to the new cable input location.

For example, if the DVD player has "component" outputs (marked Y, Pb, and Pr) hook up RCA plug cables between those jacks and the AKAI TV's Y, Pb, and Pr jacks. Connect the Y to Y, the Pb to Pb, and the Pr to Pr, of course. The LCT3285TA has two sets of these jacks. Either will do, but note if you use YPbPr1 or YPbPr2. Once this is done, push the source button on the side of the TV (or on the TV's original remote) until it shows YPbPr1 or (...2 if that's what you connected). If the DVD player is on, you should now see the DVD menu or the picture from the DVD. Now you can use the DVD remote to switch back from progressive to interlaced video. The picture may go blank at this step.

Now push the TV's source button again until you see "3" or whatever channel you had been using in the upper left of the TV screen. You should see the DVD output picture (menu) again. Back to normal.

If your DVD player doesn't have YPbPr connections, it may have a HDMI or DVI jack.
The AKAI TV also has a HDMI input, you *could* get and HDMI cable (or DVI to HDMI cable if the DVD player doesn't have HDMI), hook it up, then cycle through the TV's source inputs until you see the HDMI in the upper left... in the manner I've just described.

Final Note: The progressive scan output of your DVD will actually give you a much better picture on your AKAI TV than its interlaced output. To take advantage of that, you'll have to hook up YPbPr or HDMI cables between player and TV and switch sources when you want to watch DVDs instead of TV programs. You may need additional cables to send the stereo audio output from the player to the TV for the progressive source hookup.
