Zenith TV has no place for yellow, red, white composite plugs
I just inherited a 27" Zenith TV, mod/sy2549s, apprx 12 years old. Since my newer Zenith has had a red-tinted pic almost since I got it, I was going to switch out the tvs, but the sy2549s has no place that I can find to plug the red, yellow, and white plugs. It has place to attach cable and electrical cord only. Can't/won't pay $20 for manual. Can anyone help me with this?

Re: Zenith TV has no place for yellow, red, white...
This TV doesn't have an AV input, so there are no input jacks other than the antenna connector. If you want to connect a device that has only AV outputs (your red, white and yellow plug) you will need an RF converter. This will take the AV signals and convert them to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can tune in on the set.
But since you don't seem interested in spending any money, you'll probably not like to hear that the converter runs around $15 most places. Take heart, there is an alternative. Find a VCR (if you don't have one already) that has an RF output. Many of the the newer DVD/VCR combos only have AV outputs. You're looking for one that has an "out to TV" threaded connector on the back. These units already have an RF converter built in. Connect your AV plugs to the line in jacks on the VCR and switch to that input, and you can use your video game or DVD player through the VCR.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The general rule of thumb is that R-W-Y outputs from the VCR/DVD combo plug into corresponding color coded inputs on the TV. I think the Y(ellow)/VIDEO designation indicates where to insert the Y cord. It's worth a try.
On the back of the TV/VCR unit there is an input for audio & video plugs. These will accept a composite video signal and mono audio signal. I'm not sure if newer roku has these outputs as they are low def only signals. The roku would need to have have red, white & yellow sockets. (Old Roku's had these....) Yellow is video, red and white are L & R audio. Use a y adapter to merge red & white together, and use a standard RCA patch cord to connect the roku composite outputs to the TV VCR inputs.
I am assuming that you are talking about a Nintendo Wii. When you buy a Wii it comes with standard RCA composite cables that are three colors, Red, White and Yellow. Yellow is the cable that carries the video signal and the red/white carry the stereo audio signal. You would need to connect these cables into the corresponding color inputs on your tv. Plug the yellow ended cable into the yellow jack on your TV and do the same for the red and white cables. After this is done, you will need to switch your tv's input to the input that corresponds to the one you plugged those cables into. Some newer flat panel TVs do not come with RCA composite inputs. If this is your problem, you will need to get some component cables for your Wii. These cables look identical to RCA (composite) cables but come in colors red, green, blue, red and white. In this case the red, green and blue cables carry the video signal and the red and white carry the audio. You can purchase these from just about any store that carries the Wii or online from places such as Amazon.com.
You might have the yellow for video, white, and red for audio (composite connection) plugged into the component plugs green, blue, red for video, white, and red for audio (component connection) somehow combined together on the back of your TV to whatever source your watching.
It should be color to color from your source to your TV.
It's that or only the green plug is plugged in for the component video. Hope this helps.
make sure you plug your video into the correct ports of the TV... if you have 3 plug (red, white, yellow) make sure you have them plugged into those and not the Red/White/yellow/cyan/blue (i think) because those are composite and won't work with vid out
Although the TV is digital, the market has not dumped the analog compatibility (yet). You can connect your VCR through the RF input, using channel 2, 3 or 4 (depending on your VCR) to view your video collection. Or, you can connect your VCR by RCA cables to the composite video input. Most TVs now have only 1 or 2 composite inputs (Yellow, White, Red). They are sometimes shared, serving as a component input as well (Green, Blue, Red, White, Red). For these TVs, you will notice a yellow circle or some other marking around the Green connection indicating that it is also a composite input. When connecting to such an input, remember to connect the white (and red if your VCR has one) to the white (again, red applies) to the audio input jacks of this video input. I hope this was of some assistance and not too confusing.
No a lot of HDMI does NOT send the sound signal through the HDMI cable & must be run AV to AV, the RED WHITE & YELLOW plugs Color to color for RED & WHITE, the YELLOW is Composite Video. . The SCART should indeed have it "All in one" however that signal is only RGB, or Composite Video, a lower quality, than HDMI. Just use HDMI & AV. you'll be all good.
