Hook up vcr

I have a LG 47" flat screen. The dvd player is hooked up to AV1 and the Disnetwork Box is hooked up to AV@. there is red and white jack hook up in the bak of the RCA vcr but I do not know how to hook up to the LG screen since there is not another AV port. I have been told that first I must hook up the cable for the dish to the back of the VCR buth that signnal is not compatable. What is the best way I can hook up???

Unhook the dvd cables from the AV1 ports on the tv. Then hook these DVD outputs to the inputs on the vcr. Then hook the vcr outputs to the tv inputs (AV1). The tv and the vcr must then be set to channel 3 in order to watch the dvd (and possibly also some menu settings such as setting everything to "component video" and/or setting the tv/vcr button to "vcr. Also set all "3 or 4" switches on the back of all equipment to channel 3. Also, don't forget to go into your tv menu and choose AV1 when you want to watch the dvd and/or the vcr.
You can also try connecting your dish to the vcr and then the vcr to the input on the tv where you HAD the dish connected. There are several combinations you can try, but just remember to always put output cables to the INPUTS of the next piece of equipment in line, and set your menu settings appropriately on all equipment whenever you change from one machine to the next.
If all this fails, then here is a 100% positive solution. Buy an "A/B" switch. It has two inputs and only one output. You could leave the dvd connected as is and connect the dish and the vcr to the two inputs on the A/B switch. Then hook the one output of the A/B switch to the tv. When you change the position of the A/B switch back and forth, you will be changing over back and forth from dvd to vcr. You can move the A/B input selection switch manually or you can buy a remote controlled A/B switch and do your switching with the remote that comes with the switch.

How do i hookup vcr to tv


The best way to hook up your VCR is to use the AV jacks (Red, White, and yellow). Plug into AV1 or Video 1 on the back of the TV. Then, plug into Red, White, and Yellow output jack on the back of the VCR. After everything is hooked up, turn your TV channel to AV1 or Video 1 to watch from the VCR.

To record, you'll have to plug your cable box or satellite box to the AV inputs ( Red, White, and Yellow) in the back of the VCR. ( The only thing is it wouldn't be in HD )

How do I connect my Magnavox DVD/VHS player to my Element Flat screen TV?


Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4

Have a Sanyo DP42828(42"). My Satellite is working after the card resetting itself. But which 3 holes do I hook the (RED, YELLOW, and WHITE) for the dvd player?


dems,

Are you reffering to your DVD player to be conected to with your TV screen?

For DVD player connection the 3 colored RCA jack socket are:

YELLOW = video out
RED and WHITE = Audio out (left and right channels)

to hook up to your screen, at the back of the screen or side of it you'll see RCA socket indicating "AV1" "AV2" AV3" this are all Audio/video inputs where you can hook up all you A/V device or game consoles. These inputs also have the same 3 colored socket (yello = video red/white = audio)
connect your DVD player to any of this input following the same color code.After connecting the cable, select the input where you hook up your dvd player. Do this by pressing "A/V" buttons in remote commander of your TV. continously press this button until it reaches the exact location where you plug your player ex. AV1, AV2,AV3

note: in some cases the remote commander doesn't indicate this A/V button but a picture of a box having a arrow pointing inside the box.


cheers,
mark

Problem is probably with your cable box as you have confirmed that the set is working by using the dvd player, that is unless you have a bad cable for the cable box.
