SOURCE: Connection cord problem from VR375 to TV set?

Page 18 of the user manual for your device shows that there are normal video (yellow) and audio (red/white) connectors underneath the A/V out column of connectors - Since your son's TV does not have an HDMI cable (all you would need if that were the case) make sure you connect the A/V out column to the RCA type inputs of your son's TV.

The manual can be found here:

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)

Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)

where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

SOURCE: can't get signal from drc6309 to video/audio input

I dont have a Solution but I have the same problem with my RCA portable dvd DRC6309. I have connected it to three different tv set and I get no Video but I do get Sound through the tv sets... I have sent an e-mail to RCA costemer support hoping for a solution. If I hear anything back I will post it here...

I bought my RCA DRC6309 about a month or two ago at a Wal-mart supercenter. They no longer sell RCA portable dvd players. That is why I contacted RCA directly.

I presume that you've selected the correct inputs on the TV? Go for HDMI if you have it on your TV. If not use the yellow (composite) and ensure you have nothing in the S-Video (Toshs don't like using composite and S-video at the same time).

I have a polaroid hdtv 32gsr3000 and trying to hook up a sanyo dvd to and when we play a dvd it has no coler all black and white we are using 3 cables that came with the dvd player.

Make sure you connected wires right both on player and tv. There are Two ways to connect it.
1. Use 3 wires: white, red, yellow. White and red are for audio and yellow is for video. Yellow need to be connect to yellow port on TV and DVD player

2. 5 wires. Again red and white are for audio. And there is another red plus green and blue. Those 3 are for video and have to be connected to corresponding ports on TV and pkayer. Make sure you don't mix up red wires

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Connecting a sony dvp-sr500h dvd player to sanyo tv. using the red, yellow, white cables that came with the sony player get me no picture, no sound. do I need additional cables? the menu on the tv screen...

Here is the quick start guide

You seem to be using the Video & Audio connection. Start at the Player. Connect cables to YELLOW Video, RED Right Audio WHITE Left Audio Then go to TV and find the YELLOW input RED input and WHITE input. On some TV's they are separate, some combine them with the COMPONENT inputs (Component is 5 cables you will use 3 of them if you only have COMPONENT inputs)
Some TV's have an input button on the remote but no on screen selection. Try pressing the input repeatedly to access the other inputs. Lastly you will not get upscaling if you are using the 3 cable hook-up. To get upscaling use an HDMI cable to connect. Be sure to not have both types of cables plugged in at the same time HDMI by itself is best. If you reply with the modelof the sanyo TV I'll try to get you more info.

I connected my sony DVD player to a 26" sanyo tv. I used the enclosed cable. I plugged the cable in as shown using yellow to video and red and white to audio. Selected video 1 input on tv the DVD...

If you have red, white, and yellow on both DVD and TV it should work. The DVD is obviousy an output so, check your connection on TV. You may find that if you scan through the TV's menu, you will have sound in one arae and picture in another. If you have a DVD in or AUX input on the TV try, and make sure you use the inputs for the respective setting, to hook up there and see what happens. You want input on TV.

How to connect a dvd player to lcd tv

Your DVD player's output is Composite Video (the yellow connector) plus stereo audio (the red and white connectors, for right and left audio)

The inputs on your TV are for Component Video, which splits the video signal into three cables (Y for brightness, Pb and Pr for blue and red, respectively)

Check your TV to see if it has a composite input (single yellow connector, labeled "video" or "composite")

And be sure to let me know if this helps!

Snow on screen and no picture on my DS35510

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, if the previous system/connection works then we should leave that as it is. Coax-Sat Receiver-Coax-DVD Recorder-TV and TV should be Channel 3 (or 4).

On the new Sat Receiver, coax from LNB/Dish to Sat Receiver, yellow, red & white to TV. TV should be set to Video 1 or A/V or Video. There should be no snow, rather if no reception, it should be blue indicating video has muted in the absence of a good signal.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Wii video is black and white

Possibly you've plugged the video into the component (RGB) portion of the input - this calls for 3 connectors (Red, Blue, & Green) and if you only plug one in from a composite it comes out grayscale. If you only have one video lead (yellow connector) make sure it is going to a composite connection which should also be yellow. Otherwise, more info is needed about your connections.
