Question about GE 25GT240 25" TV

2 Answers

Am I connecting DVD player wrong?

Pretty sure I have the DVD player audio and video inputs hooked up correctly, but I can't get the TV to see it! On other TVs I've used, when I want the signal to come from the DVD player, I change "input" on the tv menu to an auxiliary mode, but I don't see that option here. I can only switch the screen menu between "cable tv" and "antenna," and I think I need a third choice -- don't I?

    This is a GE (not RCA) TV, from 2000 or 2001. The setup menu only offers cable TV and antenna -- there is no aux input mode, as far as I can tell -- as I wrote in my problem explanation. The TV is connected to cable -- are you saying I should go to antenna mode and tune it to 00 or 01?



    I appreciate your trying to help, but I hope someone familiar with the GE 25GT240 25" TV will respond!

On some of these older RCA try simply tuning it from the remote down to chanel 01 or 00 this may work. if not you have to go into the setup menu of this set and enable the aux inputs

RCA DRC247N DVD Player No Audio


The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work

I cannot figure out which RCA jack output do you plug the jacks into to hook up a dvd player?


AV input wire will have three connections. Red, Yellow andWhite. Out of which, Yellow one should be connected to Video Out of the DVD player, and the other two, Read and White; to be connected to the audio out left, and audio out right of the DVD player. The other ends of this wire should be connected to Video In, and Audio In socmets of the TV. Keep trace with the colour of the socket and connect it. Select the Input of the tV to AV. Switch On both the devices. If the connection is correct, you will see the logo of the DVD player on the tv screen.

I PUT DISK IN MY D.V.D AND I CAN HEAR IT BUT CAN'T SEE THE MOVIE WHAT'S WRONG?


Make sure the video signal is making it to the TV. You don't say how you've connected the DVD player to the TV. If you're using HDMI cable, there should only be one connection from DVD to TV. If you're using other inputs (component video or s-video) you need audio (right and left) and a video signal connected. Make sure they're both connected to the same Input section on the TV. Make sure the TV is set on the correct input that you connected the video signal to.

I just bought a yamaha rx-v365 receiver and hooked to my cable box via a hdmi and optic audio cable. this is working fine but i cant get a dvd player to work via a component and coax audio cable. neither...


Make sure that the DVD player is connected into the correct inputs on the receiver and that the receiver also has the correct input selected to play. If your TV also has component video inputs it is best to connect the player directly to the TV. Otherwise, make sure you have the TV connected to the receiver via component video out.

Getting sound but no picture when watching dvd and in can't get sound from tv when watching tv


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Make sure the Red and White wire is connected into your TV “AUDIO IN” and the Red and White wire is connected into the L & R. Also check that the DVD player Audio setting Analog Out is set to “2 Channel” and the TV is turned to the correct Video line (AV Input/Video Input 1,2,3.etc). Once your TV is turned to the correct video line, you should see the “COBY” logo and it will work normally. If still the issue persists, then you’ll need to reset the DVD Player for which you’ll need to follow these steps---


Using the DVD player remote control: Open the Tray and press the “PROG” button and then press the “ZOOM” button.

Once the above procedure is performed the tray will be closed which means the DVD player has been reset back to the factory default settings.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I want to hook a system


you will only be able to get digital surround( dolby digital ) from your dvd player( by the coax or optical digital connections ) , the rest will only be in virtual surround

from the dtv box plug the yellow video jack(RCA) into the vcr video input , then plug the audio jack or jacks into the audio input on the vcr. from the vcr hook the audio out to the audio in on the reciever( tv/vcr/sat... input ) , then also connect RF out from the VCR to RF in on the TV .
for the dvd player hook the "s-video out" to the "s-video in" on the tv , then the audio L and R on same s-video input , then send the audio out connection on tv to L and R input on reciever dvd L and R input , then you will need to connect the optical from the dvd player to the reciever or coax connections for the dolby digital on the reciever to work

How do we hook up the D.V.D. player to the T.V. We think we have done it correct but it does not play.


couple of ways but the easiest way would be connecting the video and audio out from DVD (need rca connections yellow red and white)
Yellow --- Video
white and red is audio out left and right.
find in your tv set inputs with similar colors its going to be input 1
or input 2 (as an example)
once you conect the cable matching colors yellow to yellow red to red and white to white make sure you select the same input on your set (video 1 or 2) that its throu input selection in remote control from tv or set itself.

I have my television outputs connected to the inputs on the ILO. I then select that set of inputs with the SOURCE button rather then using the built in tuner. Make sure you connect the Video closest to the audio inputs(or... least confusing, try the three front inputs) Hook antenna to tv
