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.

What is the name and model of your tv?

There are two ways to hook up a dvd/vcr to at tv.
1. Coaxil Cable - From VCR Cable Out To Tv - This goes to the tv cable jack. Tv should be on channel 3 or 4 to use it this way.
2. There are Yellow, Red, White Jacks on the vcr/dvd player. There should be a couple sets actually. One set should say OUTPUT on them. The colored jacks go from the vcr/dvd OUTPUT and goes to the same color jacks on the tv that say INPUT
TV must be on an A/V or Input channel for this to work

That is about all there is too it. If you need more info, just let me know. I am more than happy to help.

If you have an older VCR, you can connect the cable to the vcr "in" , then connect the A/Vcables from the video and audio out of the vcr to the A/V on the set and put the set on av1 for source. If you don't have a vcr then you will have to get a box.

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 )

Im trying to hook up my new lcd tv using a cable box and a dvd player but cant find any diagrams. As of now I can get a picture but the sound is low and can only be turned up by the cable remote. Any help...


it should not be a big deal red and white is sound yellow is video, if you have a converter box and are not getting a signal I would suggest you try moving your antene to get picture. Try hooking the DVD plaer into the TV to AUX 1 or AV1 or AV 2 Or AV3 and make sure the TV is on the right channel on to see Picture and correct level of sound, are you running anything threw a coverter box? Need to know the TV brand to do a diagram. The output from the DVD player shoud go into AV1 and the wire colors should be the same DVD output to AV1 input or AV2 in?

Sound but no picture on TV


Try hooking your components up to the "AV1" and "AV2" jacks on the TV. I experienced this when hooking up my DVD and VCR (movies of my kids so kept it around). I hooked one to AV1 jacks and one to COMPONENT jacks and had the same result you're describing. Hope this helps.

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.
