Yes you can try Bogue Engineering at they carry awesome connectors and for your system you need the 4,2mm size. They only cost $21 for a set of 6 and they are much better than Samsungs parts. Hope that helps.

How do I hook up this DVD player to my 60 inch Westinghouse model #VR-6090Z ?

If your DVD player has HDMI, use it. If not, you'll need to buy a cord for it. Look on the back of the TV and the back of the DVD player. There should be colored connectors on each one. On the TV, it will be an input. On the DVD player, it'll be an output. There will be either 3 connectors or 5 connectors on the TV and DVD player. You'll need a cord with either 3 connectors on each end (red, white, yellow), or one with 5 (red, white, blue, green, red). Once you figure out which cord you'll need, buy it from any store that sells TVs and hook it up. The link below has pictures

HK395s Left speaker out. The speaker still works and the problem is on the little circuit board in the oppoosite speaker. Can anyone assist? It osn;t the wiring as I checked that back to the pin co

Did you check the input? as in the plug that goes into the computer itself? Try plugging it into something else like an ipod or other source to see if it works correctly. You've done great in checking it internally, and it's not likely that the circuit board would go bad...let me know

I can hear the music when playing dvd's on my Spectoniq dvd player, but can't hear when people talk. Can anyone help me?

Yes, I can help you. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo is that the dialog on is sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it.
If you have a surround sound system with two speakers in front and two speaker in back. Then you need to make a change in the Receiver Setup (Which may be set up for 3 speakers in front) so that it is set up for 2 speakers in front.
The last thing my simply be that you have a center channel front speaker that is not completely connected because of a wire falling off, etc.
Hope this helps,

So, my 3 year old got a hold of my portable TruTech DVD player and now it doesn't work. There is a black ribbon thing when you open the DVD player, one end of it is hooked to something, but the other end...

The black ribbon thing is the wire harness to the optical laser of your DVD player. It normally has a connector that is plugged into a printed circuit board inside the player. It is best to have a technician plug it back in to test the unit. The laser of these units can be harmful to eyesight when operating a powered unit opened. The laser may also need to be "calibrated" or aligned. Hope this has been helpful.

Alpine sub pre outs

i know people dont like doing it this way but when in doubt, splice wires.

go to walmart and buy a crossover, splice your front or rear door speaker wire and wire in the crossover and also the door speaker. plug your RCA cables in and run them back to the amp.

most people with stock decks do this if they dont have sub out or amp out.

if u need more help let me know

Connect Creative 5.1 A500 speaker system to Phillips DVD 3256

moz-screenshot.jpg 2d65f17.jpg
Just buy two connectors(shown above). Its having two holes upside.
1. Connect the connector to one hole of the other.
2. Connect the audio cable to the dvd.
3. Then connect the connectors to the other side of the audio cable.
4. Lastly, connect the three stereo output cables of the Creative speakers to the three holes of the connector simultaneously.
I have tried this at home with my Creative Inspire M5300 speakers and philips dvd. All the five speakers are working.

Is it possible to use the speaker system on a different DVD player?

I believe I understand what you're asking here. To the best of my knowledge sony puts a special type of connector on the reciever end of the speaker wire which will probably not be compatible with any other reciever brand. Depending on the age of your system, the speakers may not even be compatible with the new Sony models. Wait...there's good news though. Whatever reciever/DVD player you decide on, there will surely be speaker outputs and if you snip of the Sony connector and strip the wire a bit, you shouldn't have a problem. A couple of other things to consider though... A conventional standalone DVD player may not have outputs for five speakers and a sub. That sounds more like a dedicated reciever. I have a crazy suggestion but you might save yourself some money and trouble. -If you are satisfied with the speaker portion of your current system, buy a cheap DVD player, run the video out to the TV, the audio out to the AUX audio in on your current system and use it for sound only. Hope something in here helps.

My Toshiba SD-3960 sound does not work.

First thing before a landfill is to go into the units menu and see if something in the audio got turned off if not then inspect the connectors on the back for breakage. Good Luck
