SOURCE: hooking it up

Easy, just match up color codes from tv to dvd player. If you only have red, yellow and white, they should coincide wih the TV as some TV's dont have the 5 color jacks R/W/G/B/Y inputs. If they do, use the colorstream or "comp" input on the TV

SOURCE: Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

MY TV will not show color on the tv .I have a protron PDS2315 .I don't have the cables that came with the DVD player Does that make the deference?


Hi zapchenk,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.com.

The most common caused of "No color" fault when viewing movies through DVD player are :
1. Wrong TV/DVD format - If your TV is a NTSC system format and not knowingly your DVD player is set to PAL/Secam system format, then there's no color generated to your TV due to incorrect video frequency signal coming from the DVD player.
Solution : You have to sync/match the system format of the TV and DVD player. Check first the system format of the DVD player through the menu. Try to change it from PAL/Secam to NTSC.
2. Wrong hooked up - Since the problem is in video, you have to check the video hooked to your TV and DVD player. HDMI jack is the best option to avoid wrong hooked up because it come with Audio and Video in just one cable. If you are using one RCA cable to connect the video, make sure that it is hooked up to Video in of the TV and Video out of the DVD player, it is usually color yellow RCA jack. If you are using the component video hooked up, you must have 3 RCA cable for video alone. It is color coded as green(Y), blue(Pb/Cb), and red(Pr/Cr) RCA jack.

My advice is to check first the system format and then the video hooked up.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Good luck and take care!

Kind Regards,
Jdvillanueva

Hook up


Hi:
This type of hook up is only for television viewing, to view the DVD you might consider purchasing some componet cables, they are color coded so hooking up is a snap, on the back of the DVD player you will see three RCA type connections Red/Green/Blue. componet cables are also these colors, connect one end of the cables to it coorsponding color on the back of your DVD and the other in the same color connectors labeled componet 1 input on the back of your television. You will also need a red and white RCA connector also for the audio as this is sound, a total of 5 connections will complete the hook up. Or you can go the simple route and use RCA type cables that come as yellow/red/white but for the best picture use componet cables this will allow you to watch your movies in HD.

How do I hook up dvd player


It should hook up like a regular VCR does. A short cable from the OUT on the back of the dvd player to the cable hookup on the back of the tv.

You can also use audio/video wires (3 wire cable). Somewhat same method...connect 3 wires to audio/video OUT of the dvd player to COMPONENT section on the back of the tv. Should be color coded to match colors on the 3 wires.

Hope this helps some. It is difficult to explain. Good luck!

Just make sure you hook up the wires to the correct plugs. They should be colr coded - red and white for audio and yellow for video. The sockets on the TV will have the same color code. If not, its just a matter of trying various combinations. If nothing works, then try using a different cable.

Confused about Connections


Bob, you can do this, grab 3 rca cables, 1 yellow 1 red 1 white.
the holes on the back of the dvd are colored coded, you guessed it yellow ,red, white, plug the cables into the matching colored holes, your done with the dvd player, now take the other end of these 3 cables and guess what the plugs on the back of the tv are the same color code as well, take a flashlight and find the 3 colored holes marked " input 1" stick the yelloe cable in the yellow hole , red in red hole, white in white hole, turn on dvd player & tv, grab your remote for the tv and find the input button and push it until the screen show "vid1" or "video 1", input 1 what ever yours says and you`ll be watching your dvds.
