It sounds like either the TV or the device is trying to do S video instead of composite video.
see if you can change the output type of the media player and make sure that the TV input is not set to S Video.

Can I connect my to iPod Classic to watch video on Sony DVP-FX970 Portable DVD player? If so, what connection do I need?


The DVP-FX970 uses a composite (3xRCA) to mini-AV (2x mini-plugs) reducing cable. This is Sony part 9-885-103-56 and was included with the DVD player in the original packaging. See https://sony.encompass.com/item/7054170/Sony/9-885-103-56/Av_Cable_(010-0001-206) . Other vendors may also have the cable. You will also need an RCA (3xF) coupler, see http://www.cablestogo.com/product/40647/composite-video-stereo-audio-f-f-coupler-taa-compliant for one option. Connect the composite end of the above cable to one side of the coupler and the other side to the DVD player. Next connect the appropriate iPod Classic video dock, https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MC748AM/A/apple-composite-av-cable , to the other side of the coupler and the iPod Classic. Now, turn on everything and press the Input Select button for the DVD player multiple times until the current input is 'Line In'.

I hope this helps.

How to set up vhs taping


Most VCRs need to be connected in a daisy chain or a splitter from your input source. (You may need a tuner with some VCRs these days; either a digital to analog converter for a VCR with an NTSC tuner or a different tuner source.)

If you have analog cable or a cable box with coax out and a VCR with an NTSC tuner, use the daisy chain method. Connect the incoming cable or the coax out from the cable box to the VCR's coax input. Then connect the VCR coax out to the TVs coax input.

For a VCR without a tuner, you'll probably find a RCA composite video line in option on the VCR. Connect your cable box or converter box composite output to the VCR composite in. For an OTA source, you'll need a splitter to send the signal to both the TV and the converter box.

Most TVs do not have a video output option.

I hope this helps.

How do I connect the set top box to analogue television


What type of set top box? What outputs are available on the box and what inputs are on the TV?

For a basic OTA digital to analog converter, you put the antenna coaxial cable to the antenna in of the box. Then either connect the coax out to the TV's antenna in (set the tv and the box to Channel 3 or 4) or connect the composite out to the composite in of the TV (set the TV to the AV source).

For a set top box that has a composite out and a TV that only has a coaxial input, you need to add a RF modulator. Something like this: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095 . If you have a composite input on the TV, use the composite cable directly; the modulator will decrease the signal strength.

There are other converters for component out to composite video. See http://www.svideo.com/ypbpr2svideo.html . Going from a digital source (HDMI) to analog can be done but the resulting signal is poor compared to the original. Also DHCP content will not be transferred. See http://www.gefen.com/gefentv/gtvproduct.jsp?prod_id=5280 for an example.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the specifics of your set top box and tv for the best choice for your situation.

How to tune in for blu ray dvd


You do not tune in your Bluray player but connect using an HDMI cable or Composite cable. If you have a HDMI cable connect the Bluray's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI in at the back and using the TV's remote switch the Input source to HDMI. You will see the image from the Bluray player in high definition.
If you don not have a HDMI cable connect the composite out of the Bluray player using the Yellow/Red/White cable to the TV's composite input ( same three color sockets ) and switch to AV input on the TV. Using this connection won't give you high definition image but will work OK.

Can't get the play station to work with the tv. The av is plugged in correctly and the ps is turned on. Don't know which channel to go to, and when EXT we tried all different inputs and it still doesn't...


Which generation playstation are you referring to The PS2 or PS3. The PS2 would be connected with a composite cable by default i.e red white and yellow cable. Connect the cable to the corresponding input on the TV, match color codes. Switch to correct input by using your remote controller. Press the AV button and a list of inputs come's up.Select av1 or av2 and check if you get a picture. If you use a ps3 then same as before press AV button on remote and select appropriate option on screen HDMI,Component or Composite.

Im trying to connect my unit to my tv to record shows and i having trouble doing so please help i am hooking it up wrong


For OTA or CATV signals, you need to daisy chain the coax from the source (antenna for OTA) to the coax input on DVD recorder and then the coax out to the coax input of the TV. If you have a set-top cable box with an incoming CATV signal, it should be connected between the DVD recorder and the TV.

The unit can tune in and record 480i (SD) ATSC (OTA digital), NTSC (OTA analog), analog CATV and digital CATV channels.

A satellite receiver or a non-CATV cable box should get the incoming signal first and then have their composite video output (A/V) connected to the DVD recorder composite video input and then their coax (RF) output (if present) gets connected to the TV. For these, you would record from the IN1 or IN2 (press Select Input) instead of selecting a channel. Then connect the composite video out on the recorder to the TV's composite video in.

Digital signals are either enough to tune in or give no signal. So check that your antenna is correctly oriented for OTA.

Separately, you can connect the video signal when playing DVDs via composite (good signal) out and component out (better signal) out to the TV's matching input. For the component video, the sound is carried on a separate cable. Then set the TV to the input source.

In the case of wanting to watch a VHS tape while taping to a DVD, do not use the Component video source, set the TV to Input 1 (composite).

I hope this helps.

Cannotsetorplaydvdorvcrtapes


Please recheck the model. It looks like it is the DVP33040V/17 model.

You said you cannot set or play DVD/VCR tapes.

1. Is this unit hooked up properly to your TV?
2. Is your TV set to its correct viewing channel?

This is the tunerless model so the very basic way of connecting this to the TV is using the composite cables (yellow/red/white). Then find the correct viewing channel on the TV. Note:IT IS NOT CHANNEL 3 OR 4. It depends on your TV make. Most of the time it is called AV, VIDEO, INPUT, SOURCE, EXT, AUX, GAME,etc. Most of the time, the TV remote control has a specific button with those labels. You can also check your TV manual how to get the VIDEO channel when using the composite cables.

Furthermore, if you would do recordings, you will need an extenal tuner (cable box or satellite box) for this unit. You have to connect an external tuner box using another set of composite AV cables - that is:
AV out from the cable/satellite box to VCR IN on the DVD/VCR.

I can't be exactly sure without more information, but it sounds like you ps3 is outputting from another port. My ps3 originally was outputting from the component/composite cable port so in order to use the hdmi output I had to do a soft reset. That makes the ps3 sense what cable is plugged into it and automatically output through that port instead of using whatever is the saved setting.

With your ps3 turned on hold down the power button for a few second until it beeps and flashes 3 times (should be about 5 seconds). You might have to try it a few times to get it to work, but you should get picture and be able to adjust the settings on the ps3.
