Maybe there's something wrong with the rf and av cables that you have. Try and borrow some of them from your friend. Or, maybe your RF and AV cables' cords are either bent or wrecked. Try fixing them and try again. If it still doesn't work, then come back.

    Maybe a weak solder point on the video port. Try opening it up and checking the solder points.

    Maybe in the Sega DreamCast.

    Try cleaning the console out.

I am trying to connect my NES to my 40" Dynex HD TV through the AV cables and the tv says no signal but i unhooked the HDMI cable and tried the AV cables for my xbox and the xbox worked fine. How can...



  • Well the XBox has it's own AV cable pack it uses. The AV cords you are using for the NES are a separate set that are apparently bad. So to play using the AV cords you just need to pick up a new $2usd pair or see if you have a pair laying around the house.


  • You do have a coak input on the back of your TV so if you have an old coax cord laying around the house you can use the RF bonx that cam with the NES. Hook the coax from the TV to the "OUTPUT" side of the RF box and then run the little RF cord to the NES. Then turn the TV to channel 3 or 4 and you can play it that way.


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I'm trying to hookup my Toshiba DR430KU to an older tv that require an RF Modulator. I get a skewded sideways picture. Does This DVDR compatable with a RF Modulator?


Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).

RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.

RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.

I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.

I have an analog tv (coax cable) and a new dvd (av plugs) player. How do I inexpensively connect them? i saw the solution posted about the rf modulator. I have a digital to analog tv convertor. Is this...


NO. An RF modulator and your digital-to-analog (DAC) TV converter are 2 different devices. The DAC will convert over-the-air (OTA) digital television signals from your antenna to analog NTSC format so your older analog TV can receive OTA broadcasts. The RF modulator converts base-band video (composite cable/RCA connector, or S-Video cable connector) to channel 3 or 4, so you can watch video/audio on your set. To use both the RF mod. and the DAC converter to the same TV, use an A/B switch for F-connector coax, or follow the directions for the RF modulator to make the correct connections.

I have an older but operable Sanyo VWM-700 4 head hi-fi VCR to connect to an older but operable 13" TV just to watch workout video cassettes(via cable, no cable box necessary).How are the connections made...


You connect the Antenna to the VCR, you connect the AV OUT from VCR to AV IN on TV.(Yellow, Red & White) (Doesn't matter as long as color to color) Then you TUNE the VCR to the channels and the TV simply acts as a monitor. You must tune the TV to the OUTPUT from the VCR. If ya play a tape and look for the signal on the TV, to "Tune it in" to the VCR. first. then go to tuner.

Tv magnovox tv


firstly try that tv to a different tv
if this works
then check your tv av connections in side tv
also check cables continuity
if this fails buy a AV/ RF converter, have your AV be connected to a converter, and let your output be RF feed to a tv, RF input, so instead of using AV on your tv you will be using RFchannel mode
