Sorry about the delay Barbara, I was looking for your clarification comments on the other question page. I didn't realize that you posted this information here in a brand NEW question box. No problem though, this will work just fine too. I will post the information on both question pages so there is absolutely no confusion.
First of all here are the links to each of the USER'S MANUALS for your particular system components:
To view the Owner's Manuals with Operating Instructions for each device, just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and highlighted text just above. Each one of them will open a new web browser page for you automatically and allow you to view the information indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.
You did not mention exacly what model of DirecTV receiver you have, so first of all, I will just give you the generic instructions for connecting that device to your TV using an HDMI cable connection.
DIRECTV CONNECTION TO TV
Make sure your TV and DirecTV receiver are turned off before making any cable connections.
Now connect the COAX cable from the satellite antenna to the COAX IN jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
Now connect one end of an HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
Then connect the other end of that HDMI cable to the HDMI INPUT 5 jack on the back of your TV.
See page 10 of your TV's USER MANUAL for a detailed labelled diagram of the rear input connections on your TV.
If you want to test your system at this point, you can. Just plug in the power cords to the DirecTV receiver and your TV, then turn them both on.
In order to see the output from the DirecTV receiver, you will need to select the INPUT 5 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 5 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the DirecTV Receiver on your TV.
That completes the DIRECTV to TV connection portion of the system hook-up procedure.
SONY DVD PLAYER CONNECTION TO TV
Your Sony DVD player should have come with an S-VIDEO cable and set of RCA cables (yellow / red / white ) included.
Here is a link to a picture of an S-Video cable in case you need to see one:
Connect one end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO OUT on the back of your SONY DVD player.
See page 8 of the SONY DVD Player manual.
Then connect the other end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO INPUT 2 terminal on the back of your TV.
Now take colored RCA cables and one end of the red and the white cables into the LINE OUT (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of you SONY DVD Player.
Then take the other ends of those cables and plug the red and white plugs into the INPUT 2 (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of your TV.
In order to see the output from the Sony DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 2 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 2 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the Sony DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc inserted.
This completes the SONY DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.
MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER TO TV CONNECTION
I will describe the connection procedure using the basic 3 color (yellow / red / white) cables which were included with the unit at purchase.
COMPONENT VIDEO cables are also a slightly higher quality option but would have to be purchased by you separately.
Take one end of the 3 color RCA cables and insert the colored plugs into the corresponding colored VIDEO OUT and AUDIO (L / R) OUT connections on the back of the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player.
YELLOW cable plugs into the VIDEO OUT connector.
RED and WHITE cables plug into the AUDIO (L / R) OUT connectors.
See page 7 of the MAGNAVOX manual, METHOD 1.
Now take the other ends of the 3 color RCA cables and plug them into the corresponding colored INPUT 1 connections on the back of your TV.
YELLOW cable plugs into the INPUT 1 - VIDEO IN connector.
RED and WHITE cables plug into the INPUT 1 - AUDIO (L / R) IN connectors.
In order to see the output from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 1 mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 1 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc or tape inserted and playing.
This completes the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.
Recording content on the VCR from an outside source will require additional connections which are described in detail on page 6 of the MAGNAVOX manual.
This completes the most basic hook up of your entire system using the cables which were supplied stock with each piece of equipment. As I stated, other options are available for purchase and the instructions for connecting these types of cables are all in the various OWNER'S MANUALS provided above.
Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.
I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.
Try new cables. RCA cables have a tendency to have bad connections internally. Also, triple check that you're on the right input and the wires are properly connected to the DVD player. If all that fails, try the DVD player on a different T.V. and something that uses RCA cables on your T.V, such as a cable box to make sure the input jacks on the T.V. aren't bad, and the DVD player isn't bad.
Through out all of this troubleshooting, you should manage to get the DVD player hooked up.
Connect yellow video output on DVD player to yellow video input on TV using RCA cable. Connect white audio output on DVD player to white audio input on TV next to yellow. Connect red audio output on DVD (next to white) to red audio input on TV using RCA cable. Select on the TV using remote, the proper input for DVD player connection.
yes, you must have at your tv one of this plugs: Connector Type Sony DVP-NS710H 1 x Composite video output ( RCA phono ) - Rear , 1 x HDMI output ( 19 pin HDMI Type A ) - Rear , 1 x Component video output ( RCA phono x 3 ) - Rear , 1 x Audio line-out ( RCA phono x 2 ) - Rear , 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( RCA phono ) - Rear on your tv the connector is input.
You can connect the RCA plugs to the speakers. But, as for using the red/white Audio outputs you may need an amplifier, those connections are used when going into a dvd or vcr that boosts the signal in their own environment. If you have a connection for headphones on the TV you might have better luck there for the speakers.
Connect the AV output of the Sky box to the AV input of the Panasonic combo.Look at rear of the Combo and you will observe input and output RCA connections.Using RCA leads, hookup the Av output of the Panasonic to the audio/video input of the Sony tv. Power up Appliances, and you should be OK.
There are 3 components that control color, and it sounds like one of those are bad. You will have to get it repaired. I would talk to your local repair shop, and see what their estimate is, before deciding on repair or replacement.
