    DVD video out to the player produces a green tint to the images. to avoid I have had to hook the yellow video out to the TV Video 2. That does not jive with the wiring instructions. the TV is a Panasonic Plasma.

I just need a diagram to show me how to hook the dvd/vcr up to my television. I have Dishnetwork as well. I un-hooked and now I can't get a picture.

Not knowing the model of the TV its hard to tell you how to hook it up. Howeever let's assume that yu TV has an auido in and a composite video input. it it does is should have three RCA jacks on the red, one white and one yellow.

Assuming Dishnetwork is being used as a analog video.

Connect the VCR/DVD player via a patch cable ( usually has three cable all color coded, red, white & yellow) Red and White section is used for the audio Left and Right. The yellow cable is video.

Connect the audio out of the VCR/DVD player to the audio input on the TV. Do the same with the videoout of the VCR/DVD to the TV may be marked "Composite Video". Now connect your Dish Network receiver RF Out to the TV. This should be a coaxal cable.

Now when you want VRC/DVD use your remote and select input. Some older TV's have the aux input just before Ch 2. Some remotes have an input button.

once you have aux inpsut selected turn on the dvd and play your movie to view Dish go to Ch 3 or 4 depending on how your TV and system is set up.

Again not knowing the model TV you have, this is a general hook up.

Thank you Let us know if it helps

How to hook dvd player to tv

The dvd player should have come with three cables. A yellow red and white one, or 5 cables, a blue a green an orange a white and a red. on the back of your dvd player and the back of your television there should be holes with these same colors. Plug these cables into the corresponding holes on both the tv and dvd player.

Hello I am trying to hook up a dvd player to my kenwood vr 505 that has been in storage for a while. How do you hook up a HD tv and dvd. Does it go out from the receiver to the tv, and does the dvd go...

If you are using HDMI cables for HD then you will need to connect this from your dvd player to you tv. Then connect your dvd player to you amp using either fiberoptic cable or co-axil (orange) this will transfer your dolby digital signal. Then connect other stuff like video / freeview etc to the yellow red and white on amp, you may need a scart to phono cable. Then connect monitor out from you amp to the yellow on your tv .This way when you select the source on the amp the picture will change also. If you search the web for vr-505 manual there are some sites offering it.

DVD Player connection to the tv... Theres three different colours on each side (red, white, and yellow) I already got it hooked up to the tv but the problem is that to hook the other end into the DVD...

Red is usually the left channel audio, white the right channel audio, and yellow the video. Look for something to the effect of "audio out" and "video out" on your DVD player.

Lcd tv hookup

Ive got 3 samsung tv's (lcd, plasma, DLP) and I use HDMI cables on all of them. Its the only way to get the full potential out of the tv. When you use the red/white/yellow RCA cables the signal is anolog aka "old technology". Component cables are good but HDMI is the best. HDMI is a digital signal and thats what all the components that go with the tv should be run on. If your dvd player does not have an HDMI output I would suggest getting one that has that output. As for the cable box most require you to upgrade to digital cable in order to get one with an HDMI output. If you dont want to spend the money on new components and run what you have now the picture will stay mediocre at best. Good luck hope this helped

Have cable box ,also have vcr,and dvdplayer how to hook them all up

depends on what your tv is ill give u basic coax out from wall into cable box out from cable into vcr out from vcr into tv for better picture use red white and yellow from vcr to tv. for dvd use red white yellow out from dvd in to tv for better picture if tv has use s-video instead of yellow cable. for even better use red green blue(component)along with white and red for audio. if tv is hd and if dvd has it the very best is hdmi. you will only need one cable from dvd to tv instead of three or five sounds like a lot i know but take one step at a time youll get it

I ahve a hdtv and a vcr how do I connect all three together and a diagram,please, Thanks joe

i dont know how to make a diagram but i will give the best instructions
make sure you follow these instructions so you will take advantage of your tv best possible picture if you hook it up some other way you will not get that great a picture
sat cable
coax from wall to box-use a hdmi cable only no other cable its pure digital connect to the out section on box and in section on tv
if dvd has hdmi out from dvd to in on tv the same as step one if dvd does not have hdmi then you will use commponent cables red green blue for picture and red and white for audio out from dvd to in on tv
since you cant record hd on vcr you will just hook it up with yellow red and white (composite cables)out from vcr to in on tv.
if done any other way it may work but not digital and not best picture available to you
