How can i connect a video camera to play through tv. my camera cables are red-white-and yellow. tv. is white-red- green-green-and red.

Your camera has three cables, red and white for stereo audio, and yellow for what is called composite video. Composite video puts the three color signals into one composite signal. Your TV sounds like it has a component video connection, which wants all three color video signals separated onto three plugs. They are usually color coded green, blue, red. Not sure if you mistook a blue outlet for green..... In any case, on my TV, it will allow me to connect a yellow composite signal to the green component jack, the first (leftmost) of the three component video jacks. Not sure if your TV will work this way, but it is worth a try. Otherwise, you can look up accessories for your video camera and see if it can output true component video and stereo audio, but I tend to doubt it will.

Cannot get picture/menu on screen!


The Sony recorder is connected to the TV via the RCA cables (for both audio and video)? How many inputs does your TV have? One cable input and one RCA line in (making a total of two? Did you eliminate the possibility that the recorder might be defective by trying it on another TV?

There is no sound on my Sony SLV-D350P DVD Player / VCR Combo. The only section that works great is the VCR, but the DVD player sound just went out for some reason. I've changed the RCA cables, and...

Hi, As long as you have the picture it means that DVD's Laser Eye is Ok.. Pls Check your connections to make sure the audio and video cables of both VCR and DVD are properly hooked up to the television. Color coded cables should be matched with the jacks of equal color. Yellow corresponds to video while red and white are both audio.

Ensure the DVD is in standby mode if you are not getting picture from the VCR. The DVD cannot be running at the same time as the VCR is playing when you want to see the VCR picture.

Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for older TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use two inputs. though: any component- or S-video-equipped TV will offer sufficient inputs for both of the SLV-D350P's formats.
It's a different arrangement for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial,). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit DVD/VHS audio and video to your TV.
In conclusion,for a best tech solution I prpose you to connect DVD audio directly to your Stereo and listen as separate audio source.while Video goes to TV as usual. Hope this helps! if you need more help pls contact me..Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)

LG DP781 DVD player plays audio on the TV, but no video when connected to tv. The DVD player screen shows the video & audio just fine, but wondering why no video on the TV.

Souds like a cable problem. First, make sure that the cable you are using is the right cable-it should be a multi-signal cable. Look for a colored circle of insulation on the metal end that separates the tip of the connector from the bottom of it. You might even have more than two sections if it is a stereo jack. If you are sure you have the right jack/cable, then it's possible the wire carrying the video signal could be damaged. If it's not a cable issue, it's a jack issue, so look for damage on the device's output jack.

Coby DVD-937 playing DVDs in Black and White

you did not connect it to the right port in you tv with the right cables. if it came with a cable using red, blue, and green wire you need to connect all three to the appropriate place on the tv in this case the red is a video cable and not audio they are white and black in component video... if it is the other way around you have a red white and yellow cable the red and white are audio and yellow is the only video and needs to be connected to a yellow jack on the television

Won't play dvd

we have two options in this case:
  1. the receiver is your main brain:
you hook up the dvd in the receiver and the tv works as a monitor (the receiver has to have video output to monitor)

2. anyone works at its own:
in this configuration the DVD (video) is hook up into the tv (any video tv input works fine) and audio goes to the receiver in any audio input.
