    Thanks! I've actually watched this video - but upon visiual inspection, all of the capacitors seem OK. In the video, there was obvious visual damage to several. Can the capacitors be bad without any visual indication?

    Yes, capacitors do have an "end life" like most everything else. Back in the day you could go to radio shack and find a helpful old fellow who would help you check them with a meter. The only thing I could think of is maybe look for a ham radio operators club in your area, maybe you could strike up a conversation with someone, or a self employeed computer shop repair person who isn't a jerk might help determine if/which ones are bad.

Same problem here. 5 blinks is video related. I've been told to clean the screen by the lamp, as they could be clogged and causing it to over heat. Going to give thet a try first. I'll post what happens...

It's not to complicated, in the newer TVs as well as other things, when you first turn them on the diagnostic circuits kick in [that the first relay you hear click] it sends a signal (low voltage) to all the circuits to check them and make sure there are no problems. If it gets the proper returns from each circuit it kicks out and the full power relay kicks in and powers your set up. This is done to protect others circuits that might be effected by a flaw in a different circuit. What started as a small flaw in a component has gotten worse with use which is normal. Your set is kicking the diagnostic circuits and they are detecting the problem and shutting it down. You have problems with your power board, if the diagnostics circuits were not in place and full power hit the set the power board could possibly put triple or more voltage to some section of another board, thus burning it out also. That's why they started using the diagnostic circuits on TVs, Computers have had them for years. Late model car - etc. I would take the power board out of it and go to shop Jimmy's and enter the part # which will be on the board and order me another one and pop it in and kick back and watch TV again. I don't know what a power board would cost for it but "shopjimmy's" carries high quality boards at a reasonable price. I do caution you on buying a refurbished board, they are tempting but I have never and I mean never seen one hold up very long. As a matter of fact I will not put one into a TV or anything else for that matter. So there is light at the end of the tunnel and it's not the train this time! I only work on the kind of TV that plug into the wall or run on batteries, therefore, I've seen a bunch of them in14 years. Don't worry about getting the wires mixed up because one thing about TVs is a harness or plug will only fit one place and that is where it belogs you can't cross them up.

I bought a Sharp Aquos HDTV. Am trying to use a digital co-ax cable to run tv thru my reciever. I get no sound. there is only 1 place on each device to hook up this cable. Any suggestions?


I dont wish to assume that when you say receiver, you mean sattelite or cable. Since you may be trying to hook this up to a surround sound reciever...

Let me also clarify, if this is the case, the receiver needs to be turned on AND the selection signal device set to TV or AUX wherever it is you've connected the TV.

Now by receiver, if you actually meant cable or sat box, then the Ext antena from that service connects to that units ANT IN.

Then from there on that unit ANT OUT to your TV SIGNAL IN.

If you want the external surround sound and have the connectors for this. Then you need to send them OUT to the Stereo/Surround receiver TV IN.

Now having said that and assuming that your TV does not have the Red and White Audio RCA connectors... Your Sat or Cable box does... You connect those to the surround sound Receiver Audio IN

Hopefully you'll find this useful.

If this has not answered the situation. Please feel free to come back and provide all components your working with. Surround reciever, Sat, cable, DVD, VCR whatever etc. etc... I'd be more than glad to help you through this


Good Luck

I cant get a picture only sound not sure its in the right plug?


if your tv and dvd player are good yes might be you have a wrong connection. this is how a proper connection between your tv and dvd player.
  1. first step in connecting a dvd player to a tv unit is determined what kind of connection you want to make, this usually determined to the outputs and inputs available on the dvd player and tv unit.
  2. if you are using a plasma or a lcd tv usually the inputs are: composite inputs- lets you connect a component source like a dvd, vcr, and laser disc. component inputs - lets you connect another component source such as a dvd player. DVI-HDTV - lets you connect an HD receiver with a DVI output.
  3. for example if you select the composite input what you need is a RCA plug which usually a 3 color plug.this picture is an example of commercial rca plug which usually the color yellow use for video and the red and white color for audio.vinceisaac.jpg.
  4. this is how you will connect those wire into your dvd player and tv unit.look for the component output jack of your dvd player .this picture is a sample of component output jack the color may vary depending tovinceisaac_0.jpgkind of brand or dvd player do you have.
  5. now get your RCA plug then the yellow plug insert it to the Y or video out the red and white plug insert it to the left and right AUDIO out of your dvd player.
  6. now look for the composite inputs jack of your TV unit then get the other end of RCA plug. the yellow plug must be insert it to the V label for video the red and white plug into L/R label which mean for audio input.
  7. after you connect the 3 wires re check all the connections make sure the RCA plug is good and properly inserted to avoid loose contact which can affect the picture and sound quality.
  8. now turn on your dvd player and tv unit.
  9. make sure your tv unit is set to right input you want to use like for example you are using the video 1 input, you need to set to the remote controller into video 1 so that your dvd player must be recognized by your tv. enjoy watching i hope it will help you thanks for choosing fixya as your solution to fix you problem good luck.

Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* 2 sets component AV cables
* HDMI cable


Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.


Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.


Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.


Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.


Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.


Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.

Reset the receiver by unplugging it for 10 seconds then plug it back in. Unplug the HDMI cable from the TV and the receiver and plug it back in. If you are still not getting any sound connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the same TV, using same cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. If it still doesn't work with the other component, replace the cable. If it works then give us a call at 1-800-333-DISH (3474) for some additional troubleshooting. We hope this helps.

We recently purchased an AVR 146 receiver and have attempted to connect our DVR satellite receiver, a DVD player/recorder and our Hitachi (non HD) TV, plus a surround sound system to it. The surround sound...


Hello,

This is how the connection is suppose to be, DVR "OUT", to TV "IN" using the RCA plugs, then press AV on the TV. If this is how you connected it, then maybe there is something wrong with the video wire (Yellow).

As for the DVD, you need to connect an Audio wire separately because the component Red + Green + Blue wire only stands for video. Audio is Red and White, this must be connected for you to get sound from the DVD.

To connect the Audio for your DVD player, connect Red and White wire to Audio "OUT" of your DVD player, to "AUX" in of your AVR 146 receiver, then select AUX on your receiver and sound will come out from your DVD through the receiver.

I hope this is not complicated for you. This connection is simple, all you need is to understand the basics which is OUT and IN. If you want to watch DVD on your TV, this means the DVD will be good OUT to IN of the DVD. The same goes for audio.

If you don't understand, please let me know so that I can direct you further.

Good luck.

d chesnutt,

To determine if the problem is associated with your TV or not, do you have a DVD player or another component connected to your TV? If so, are you getting the sound when playing the other components? If you are, then the problem is with your TV. If not, the problem could be the component or the connection between the TV and component. I hope this helps.

Your receiver is not capable of upconverting analog to HDMI (digital). You will need to add component video cables either from the Denon to the TV or simply straight to the TV from the XBox. Audio should be handled solely by the Denon receiver.

Must hookup DVD-VR375to tv,cablevision box & MSNtv2.


Here's How:
  1. The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD Recorder and the TV.
  2. If you have an older TV that only accepts RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality) option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
  3. If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
  4. To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
  5. To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
  6. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
  7. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
  8. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
  9. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
  10. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
  11. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

Cant get the wiring figured out.........


TV is HD correct? Use the Y/CB/CR from the Sat to the TV. Use the Digital optical cable for sound from the sat to the receiver. Use the s-video from the dvd player to the tv and the l/r to the receiver for sound. I would suggest upgrading to another set of Y/CB/CR cables to connect your dvd to the TV and benefit from better picture. Also, buy another optical cable for dvd sound (so you can enjoy surround sound). Your receiver has two optical inputs so youre covered there.
