How do I hook up my dvd/vcr to the tv

On the back of the cinavision you have two groups of sockets. The yellow socket under Video out is picture. Red and white is sound. Connect them to the TV's yellow red white sockets marked Video In 1. This connection will give you picture and sound from either the VCR or the DVD deck.

There's a better picture quality available for DVDs only from the Component video out sockets (green red blue). Next to them is another set of audio sockets (red white). Connect all five sockets to the TV's input number 2. The colours match up. The picture from Component will be clearer and sharper.

On your Sharp TV remote, select Video 1 to watch VCR, and Video 2 to watch DVDs.

Trying to set up digital set top box to our old LG tv model no CF-21F80KX . Have red white and yellow on set top box and 2 white and 2 yellow on back of tv. Kerrie

The RED and White RCA jacks on the set top box are for Right and Left channel audio to go into the TV Video 1 or Video 2 input jacks of the TV. The Yellow jack is for the Video, that will go into the Yellow jack on the TV Video 1 or Video 2. If you want to use Video 1 INPUT, then all 3 jacks (RED, WHITE, YELLOW) will be use. Just match the color, they should be grouped together per each set of input on the TV.

I hope I explain it well enough.

Trying to hook up panasonic veira flat screen tv without a manual. Not sure where to put the red, yellow and white cord.

These cable is to connect your tv to other hardware like a dvd player. Just plug the yellow cord on the yellow input in the TV and in the yellow output of the DVD, and the same thing for the other two colors. The yellow it's for the image, and the white/red are for the stereo sound (right and left channels).
If you don't have extra hardware you wont need to connect that cable.

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."

How do i hook my dvd player to my tv? i have no manual to show me where to plug the wires into the back of my tv.i have a proscan 32LB30Q LCD

Hello pebbles12137,

This depends on what you want to do SD or HD

First if you just want to connect for SD only

Here are Three ways:

1) connect the coaxial cable to the DVD player F-connector (sliver screw connector) and the to the TV's Antenna in F-connector.

2) connect the yellow, red and white RCA connector end wires to the yellow, red, and white RCA Jacks of the TV Yellow (video in), Red (Right Audio in), White (Left Audio in) do the same for the other end into the DVD player (Best SD Method)

3) connect the svideo cable into the s-video socket of the TV and the other end to the s-video socket of the DVD player

For HD, Here are the connection methods:

1) Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI in of the TV (HDMI1)and the other end of the HDMI cable into the DVD player. (best HD method)

2) connect the Component video cable (RGB) into the RGB sockets of the TV (should be marked as Component 1) and connect the other end to the DVD player (using this method you will have to connect the Red and White audio cables to the audio input jacks of the TV from the audio out of the DVD player)

These are the SD and HD methods.

I would suggest using the HDMI cables only, its the best choice and the simplest.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I went to 'S' video for that function and use the external audio inputs for L/R. This path is slightly superior for video but carries no audio signal.
Check to see if they both have it.

The yellow cable is normally a 'composite' video cable which carries video and sync info.
The red and white are pretty standard for audio with red=right and white=left.
