    Tried to remove Cable and DVD inputs and power, wait 10 mins and re-set. No change except we no longer get No Signal indicator on screen. Still, audio OK, video OK from VCR, but no video from Cable or DVD.

    Thanks to both solutions. I don't know which worked; I tried both and today the TV works fine.

Do you mean you have audio for the Cable and DVD player? If yes then what you have is most likely a resolution issue. As you know there are different resolution settings available on cable boxes in DVD player when its connected via HDMI. The resolution set on the device, must match with that on the tv. Otherwise you will have sound but a no picture on the screen. Change the resolution on the device and see if you can get image. If you don't know how to do this then let me know the make and model of your player and I will tell you how to do it. You can also try adjusting the resolution on the tv itself.

Hi.

Check if the cable machine is passing through the DVD before reaching the TV. Try swapping the cables , and if possible test replacement cables.

Try disconnecting the TV, The DVD and the cable machine from power outlet. Wait ten minutes and connect back.

In case you are not sure on how to manage the connections, please let me know how you are connecting the three units (eg: HDMI, av, component)

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Unfortunately, size limitation of what could be attached prevents posting a connection diagram. Still, proposed connection scheme:
  • 4250HDC's HDMI to Panasonic's HDMI 1 or 2;
  • 4250HDC's VIDEO OUT to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 VIDEO;
  • 4250HDC's AUDIO OUT to 2 pcs of RCA Splitters (shown below);
  • 1 pair from the 2 splitters to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 R-AUDIO-L;
  • the other pair to Yamaha's LD/TV L & R;
  • GoVideo's LINE OUT VIDEO to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 VIDEO;
  • GoVideo's LINE OUT R-AUDIO-L to 2 more RCA Splitters;
  • 1 pair from the 2 splitters to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 L-AUDIO-R;
  • the other pair to Yamaha's VCR 1 IN L & R;
  • to watch cable TV in HD quality, set Panasonic to HDMI 1 or 2 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 3 (or 4), then OK;
  • to hear cable TV programs on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to LD/TV;
  • to watch DVD or VHS, set Panasonic to Video 1 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 6, then OK;
  • to hear DVD or VHS on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to VCR 1;
  • to record cable TV programs, press GoVideo remote's TV VIEW button a couple of times to cycle through the signal sources or until Line 1 is displayed.

The use of the splitter shown below would effectively double the AUDIO OUT of the cable box and the DVD/VCR combo to feed both the TV and the stereo. Additionally, this would allow use of the cable box and/or the DVD/VCR combo with or without the Yamaha.

LCD TV connection to DVD-VCR


OK here is a possible solution: 1) The best solution: Connect the antenna to your DVD-VCR through the RF Input and the the RF Out to your TV This take care of the VCR part. Then you get an RCA three way cable (Video-yellow marked, Right Audio-Red marked, Left Audio-white marked)connect the yellow marked RCA cord to the Video out of your DVD player then connect the other end to your video in of your TV. Ater that connect the red marked audio cable to the R Audio out of your DVD player to the R Audio in of your TV do the same for the white marked Audio cable. You will now be able to switch from VCR-RF to DVD-RCA.

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.

I change Component Cable Video & Audio 6 cables


I might sound stupid but Double check that you`ve connected the correct connectors as in All Inputs plugs being used or All outputs plugs being used. If you have one of these leads with 6 connectors on one lead, (Audio Input L+R, Video Input, Audio Output L+R, Video Output) You need to make sure that if you get sound from the audio input plugs, then you must use the video input plug and vice verse.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


    check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.

    assume the cable tv box represents the converter box

    you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.

    Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.

    If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.

    You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?

    So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.

    the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.

    That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

    I have a 30 year old tv w/cable. I want to install a dvd/vcr combo player. What kind do I need? I've tried one and it didn't have the right connection.


    If the original TV doesn't have audio/video inputs, you'll need a DVD/VCR player that has a built-in RF modulator. A RF modulator takes the audio & video and modulates a RF carrier to one of the channels that your TV can receive. In the U.S., this is usually channel 3 or 4. If the DVD/VCR player has a built-in tuner, connect your cable to the RF input of the DVD/VCR player and the RF Output of the DVD/VCR player to the cable input of the TV. This way, you can receive your cable channels through the DVD/VCR player and watch movies as well. If your DVD/VCR player does not have a built-in tuner, you can put a RF switch inline that will allow your TV to either receive the cable signal or signal from the DVD/VCR player.

    Good luck!
