Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

No picture with vhs

I have my durabrand vcr hooked up through my onkio receiver to my RCA TruFlat hdtv...and i can get sound through the onkio of the vhs..but not an image on the screen. an image does show up, however, when the vhs is stopped. the blue background and the stop icon is shown on the tv..though when i hit play, the picture sputters for a few seconds, and eventually the tv goes to its bright blue in the way it does when it doesnt receive a signal

any help would be greatly appreciated

The video output of the onkyo is usually called MONITOR, and will usually display inputs from video1/2/3/4, etc, that are ANALOG--which is what your vcr is pushing out. Are you connecting that vcr via coax to the TV also? almost sounds like you're using channel3/4 (modulated) output over coax to connect to the tuner/antenna input on the tv and you've got the wrong channel on the tuner entered--try pressing 03 or 04 on the remote to change tv channels. Otherwise, if you've got the VCR only connecting to Onkyo, and then the onkyo's MONITOR port (svid or rca yellow) connecting to INPUT Video on the TV, be sure you've got the right input selected. NOTE: Agreed, the video degredation on the passthrough/RCA/SVID is noticeable--usually much dimmer than a straight connection. But, when you've got lotsa of rca/svid based devices and want to switch easily, that Onkyo does an OK job--you can get used to it. If it really does degrade enough to provide unuseable signal, sounds like a you've got multiple inputs on the Onkyo that are simultaneously outputting to the MONITOR jack (svid/RCA and component) and the onkyo is having trouble filtering or selecting the strongest signal.

Don't pass the video sample through the Onkio.. Use a second single RCA patch cord to go from vcr to TV... Use the same yellow out on the vcr that you're using now and send it directly to the yellow video input you're using on the TV..
Hope that's clear - I'm getting tired...

I am trying to hook up my vcr and my DVD to the 60pp9202 60 in my DVD is working but my VCR is not. I am getting a black and white picture on one channel and sound on the other.


put the dvd plug scart into the spare scart socket on the vhs player,then u can only use one player at a time,ie if watching dvd put vhs player into standby or vice versa,the other scart socket on the vhs player goes to the tv. when not using either be sure to put both on standby.

How do I connect my Magnavox DVD/VHS player to my Element Flat screen TV?


Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4

DV1130 hooked up to TV, DVD works great. VHS has


If you are using RCA cables (Red Yellow White) the video (yellow) could be bad or not in the connector all the way. When the VCR mode is selected try pulling the yellow connector out then back in and see if anything changes on the tv.

If you are using another type cable let me know and I will help you diagnose.

Hope this helps

Connect DVD recorder to Video player/recorder- transfer VHStodisc


hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

Trying to hook up a playstation one


Make sure you have the cables connected correctly from the playstation to the VCR.
Yellow colour is Video output from playsation to Video input on VCR.
To get the audio from the playstation to the VCR just match the colours of the RCA connections.
Do not forget to select video input on the VCR as well.
Good Luck.
