Coby tfdvd3295-32in720pwidescreen lcd hdtv with dvd player hdmi input

All TVs have a tuner and a set of AV inputs for connecting other sources. A combi TV such as the Coby has one of those inputs dedicated to the built-in DVD drive. Press the Input button to see the list of sources.

The disc can be ejected either by pressing the eject button on the set itself, or possibly from an eject button on the remote if there's one fitted.

How can I hook up my hdmi

Hello kuerta,
You take the HDMI cable and plug it into the HDMI IN on your Samsung TV. The other end of the HDMI cable can be plugged into whichever source you use, such as a dvd player or a Blu-Ray player. But you must plug in to the HDMI out of your player (most likely it will only have HDMI out). Once it is plugged in, turn on your DVD/Blu-Ray player. Then by clicking source or input on your Samsung remote, you scroll down to the the HDMI you plugged into and then press enter. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • DVD
  • RCA, component, or HDMI cable(s)
  1. Decide what type of connection to use. Look at the back of your DVD player. It should at least have RCA (red, yellow, white) output ports. It may also have component out, S-video out, VGA out, or HDMI out. These connections vary in picture quality and price, HDMI being the most expensive and providing for the highest-quality picture. Whichever type of connection you decide to use, you also need to verify that you have the same connection on your TV. Flat screen TVs typically have more connection options than other types of TVs, so you should at least have component, RCA and HDMI inputs.
  2. Connect the DVD payer to the flat screen TV. Take one end of the cable or cables you decided to use and connect to the output on the DVD player. The other end should be connected to the corresponding input on the TV. Video input connections are usually found on the sides of flat screen TVs. Once the DVD player has been connected, you are ready to use your DVD player.
  3. Check DVD player functionality. Tune your TV to the input that you used for your DVD player by pressing the button on your remote labeled "input," "source," "TV/video," Source select," "TV/AV" or the like. For instance, if you used an HDMI cable plugged into your TV's "HDMI 1" input, press the input selection button until you see HDMI 1 on the screen. Power on the DVD player, insert a DVD into the player and press play and you should now see a feed from your DVD player.

When i go to hook up a hdmi cable to my philips flat screen it wont recognize that i have a hdmi plugged into it. so what could that be the tv? the hdmi works with my other tv though

This model has 4 HDMI inputs, do you get same problem in each HDMI input?
Did you checked HDMI input with any other video source like dvd player or PS3 etc instead of cable box?
Below are few helpful tips to connect HDMI input..
1. Ensure that your HDMI cable is certified.
2. Press SOURCE on the remote control to switch to another source and then switch back to the HDMI source.
3. Reset the accessory device and the TV.
• Turn on the TV
• Select the HDMI channel
• Turn on the accessory device
4. While the TV and the accessory device are powered on, unplug either end of the HDMI cable and then reinsert the cable.
Try above options and if tv still does not show picture of any video source through HDMI then it seems problem of HDMI processor located on main board, visual check is needed by qualified tech or call Philips if tv is under warranty.
Hope these info will help you.

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...

The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.

How to get a high definition Picture??

Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

Progressive scan

Approach 1: Try unplugging the DVD player from the wall for an hour, then plug it back in. It may or may not reset to the factory default settings, which might put it back to "interlaced" output.

Approach 2: When a DVD player is switched to progressive scan, it uses outputs different from the coax cable "TV out" and the COMPOSITE outputs (often yellow, white and red RCA jacks. If you have the proper cables, you can connect them to both the DVD player and the TV, then cycle through the AKAI TV's "source" settings to switch the TV to the new cable input location.

For example, if the DVD player has "component" outputs (marked Y, Pb, and Pr) hook up RCA plug cables between those jacks and the AKAI TV's Y, Pb, and Pr jacks. Connect the Y to Y, the Pb to Pb, and the Pr to Pr, of course. The LCT3285TA has two sets of these jacks. Either will do, but note if you use YPbPr1 or YPbPr2. Once this is done, push the source button on the side of the TV (or on the TV's original remote) until it shows YPbPr1 or (...2 if that's what you connected). If the DVD player is on, you should now see the DVD menu or the picture from the DVD. Now you can use the DVD remote to switch back from progressive to interlaced video. The picture may go blank at this step.

Now push the TV's source button again until you see "3" or whatever channel you had been using in the upper left of the TV screen. You should see the DVD output picture (menu) again. Back to normal.

If your DVD player doesn't have YPbPr connections, it may have a HDMI or DVI jack.
The AKAI TV also has a HDMI input, you *could* get and HDMI cable (or DVI to HDMI cable if the DVD player doesn't have HDMI), hook it up, then cycle through the TV's source inputs until you see the HDMI in the upper left... in the manner I've just described.

Final Note: The progressive scan output of your DVD will actually give you a much better picture on your AKAI TV than its interlaced output. To take advantage of that, you'll have to hook up YPbPr or HDMI cables between player and TV and switch sources when you want to watch DVDs instead of TV programs. You may need additional cables to send the stereo audio output from the player to the TV for the progressive source hookup.
