I am trying to plug a play station 2 into the rca f19240 and do not see ports for the three colored prongs that I need to conect


Many of RCA's smaller sets didn't come with AV input jacks. They only had a connector for an antenna or cable wire. To use a device like a DVD player or game console with a TV like this, you need an RF modulator. This takes the audio and video signals (those three cables you can't plug in to the TV right now) and creates a signal that the TV can tune in on channel 3 or 4. Unless you replace the TV with one that has AV inputs, the modulator is your only solution.

It is compatible. The yellow cable is the video portion of the input and the white is the audio portion of the input. When you do this and switch the video mode or change the channel to number 3, it should work

Your TV must be equipped with AV inputs (RCA jacks - yellow, white, red)
in order to connect this unit. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you will need a RF Modulator to connect the DVD recorder to your TV's
antenna/cable input. RF Modulators are available at
major electronics retailers such as Radio Shack or Wal-Mart and allow the 3 RCA outs from the recorder to connect to the RF modulator RCA inputs and then you can connect a coaxial cable from the modulator to the TV RF input and select channel 3 or 4 on the TV. The DVD recorder will not pass thru signals to the TV using coaxial cable as far as DVD are concerned.

Because your TV is an older one, it might not have, what they call RCA inputs (the 3 colored cable) Red-audio right, White-audio left, Yellow-video. If I understand you.

You do have the option of using the 75-ohm coaxial cable inputs. Signal comes in from outside to the 722k, Output of the 722k to the 75ohm coax input on the back of the TV. Tune your TV to ch. 3 or 4. Make sure the switch on the back of the 722k is set to the same.

If you really want to use the RCA colored cables, then you need to buy an RF modulator, which integrates older tv's to newer products. But usually dvd players, not necessarily cable boxes, but it would work if hooked up correctly.

You plug the RCA red, white and yellow from the 722k, into the rf modulator, choose channel 3 or 4 on the modulator

Connect 75ohm coax cable from rf modulator to TV 75ohm coax cable input. Choose channel 3 or 4 on the TV.

Hope this helps.

My tv has beatiful pic but no voice comes out until u plug in video game or vcr with movie but sound doesn't come out for regular tv movies can u help?


sound like the modulator where the cable plugs into has an issue or the audio input jack is not switching.
the modulator takes a rf signal and decodes it into audio and video.
since the sound is working with a video input,the defect is either in the modulator block,or the rca audio input jack is not connecting two of the pins when the rca cord is unplugged.
spray some contact cleaner into the rca plug for the audio.

DVD to TV - can't connect. No inputs on the actual TV


You could buy a RF Modulator, into which you can Input the 3 cables (Video, Audio Right and audio Left) and the Modulator will make it into a single RF signal, which can be tuned by the TV. RF Modulators are generally set at UHF Channel 36 by Default. One of the easisst available is the Rabbit Ears Modulator, which "transmits' the signal wirelessly to the TV. Not more than 15-20$

No jacks in the back


Hi,

This is a very basic TV with only a single ANT/CABLE/RF INput. If you intend to use a DVD player whose outputs are the yellow, red & white RCA, then you would need either:
1. an RF modulator similar to this one or
2. use an old VCR to accept the yellow, red & white RCA cables as INputs. The VCR would then have to be connected to the ANT/CABLE/RF INput using an RF patch cord. The TV wold then have to be tuned to either Channel 3 or 4.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

RCA TV - Trying to hookup new dvd/vcr player to old tv with only antenna input


The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.

Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.
