COMPONENT AND COMPOSITE INPUTS DON'T WORK

The composite and component video inputs are not working properly. Connecting the cmponent to the rear panel composite or componenet inputs, produce sound but do not produce video. I was convinced for about two weeks that the authorized TV repair company had solved my problem by replacing the signal board, but today the problem has returned.

    Component inputs do not work on my Zenith D52WLCD - Just tried to hook up HD to my TV and found that both sets of component inputs are not working. I don't think they probably ever worked. I have had the TV 4 years - this is the first problem I have had with it.

SOURCE: Composite and s-video inputs stopped working

You may have shifted the input board a little while replaceing the IC's. Double check every plug and connector, not just by visuale inspection, but by going and removing and replacing every connector. I have had problems like this in the pasy and have learned the hard way, everything is not as it looks. Good Luck

SOURCE: Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No Picture from Component Input #1 or #2 but do have audio via Surrond Sound

Simplest thing would be that your component cables are not HU'd correctly. Having them reversed would do this.

SOURCE: We have a Denon AVR

Try checking first the connection for the audio, then make sure the surround sound receviver is also connected properly and also turn everything OFF then turn back ON since you have a disruption just to refersh all devices and check it again if there will be sound already..

Hope that helps..........

SOURCE: inputs quit working

check the cords for open.if not, try to wiggle just a little the cords while you insert it, if the screen flicker and shows video signal, you'll need a tech to resolder the jacks.

How best connect external DVD to TV: Composite or Component? Both available on both units


If the TV does have a component input, that will be your best choice. Component video provides an HD signal; composite is only an SD (480i) signal. However, if the TV doesn't have 3 RCA ports (red, green and blue) for the video itself, in addition to the red/white RCA audio ports, you may be missing an adapter that allows the port to be used properly. You'll need to set the TV to the external video input with a Source or Input button on the TV or the remote. If you press the DVD button on the remote, the TV will only attempt to get the signal from the internal DVD.

Please add a comment with the make and model of your TV for additional information. A number of TVs (like some LG models) share the composite and component inputs and use an adapter to reduce the input to a smaller area on the TV. Without the adapter, the TV can't correctly identify the signal. The component video adapter for my LG TV looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/LG-OEM-Original-Part-EAD61273107/dp/B00C5HXILE . There's a second one for the audio signal.)

I hope this helps.

ELMO Visual Presenter (Model EV-2000AF) does NOT display COLOR properly onto HDTV monitor. (Appears Bluish or Reddish w/ 2 Composite Cables connected)


Those jacks you are plugging into on the HDTV are not composite inputs. They are component. The reason the color is not right is, you have to have a Red, Green and Blue connection.

The black and white picture from the 1 cable is because you are using a composite signal into a component green.

Big difference between a composite and a component signal. I hope this helps.

Keep getting no signal on 32 in lg


Start at the beginning:

Hook a DVD to one of the rear sets of audio/video jacks--go to that input and verify it works.

If so, hook the direct TV to another rear input and select that---if no picture that way---the box may be the issue or wrong hookup--composite to composite or component to component (most likely).

If the set works with DVD and not DIRECT TV it is not smart enough to know what is hooked to it.

In that case a setting or the connection out from the box is the problem---check on screen menu for the box in setup.

Box may need to be rebooted with it connected to set or wrong hookup of cables.

In my dorm room I have a N64, which works when I hooked it up. However it wont play in color it's only in black and white which is extremely annoying. I have a Sony Bravia. How do I fix this without...


Hi,

You have more than likely connected a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type) to the COMPONENT video input sockets on the back of the TV.

COMPONENT requires 3 RCA type video cables, COMPOSITE only uses one (the yellow plug). If you connect only one video cable to any of the three component inputs you will get a black and white picture although you will still have audio if the red and white cables are correctly connected.

If you are using a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type), please check the connections on the rear of the TV and make sure you have not connected to a socket marked "COMPONENT", "Pr" "Pb" or "Y". If you are certain the cable is correctly connected, please try another cable.

If you have verified that you are using the correct sockets on the TV and it still doesn't work or if you are using any other type of cable, please let me know which cable you are using and the model number of the TV. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

My samsung lcd tv will only show me black and white when i plug my wii in component 2, how do i make it go back to color?


Your problem may be that you need to select the "AV" input on the HDTV. Samsung HDTVs of late combine the composite video with the green input component video. To use the yellow composite video in the green input port you have to select the proper AV input on the TV which tells the TV to go composite video (yellow) instead of component video (green). Try this, it may work.
