Some Flat Panel TVs do not have atsc tuners on them. You should be able to connect your unit using Component cables through. This will provide a better picture, but you will have to control channel changing through a cable box. You will need a cable box to connect your TV to cable. If you dont have a tuner you cannot just connect from the cable cord coming from the wall. What is your model number?

How to Fix a Polaroid LCD TV Screen


<p>A Polaroid LCD TV delivers its picture via DVD player or cable connection to your home or office. After setting up your device and using it, you might experience technical difficulties with power loss and picture quality. Navigating through a few steps of self-maintenance will have your Polaroid TV running smoothly again in little time. You can examine your TV's power cord for damage, rewire a DVD player connection, and adjust your Polaroid's backlight.<br /> Difficulty:Moderate <span>Instructions</span> <ol> <li> <ul> <li> <span></span> Turn your Polaroid around so that the back is facing you, as a first step in correcting a power loss issue. Examine the length of the power cord from the back panel of the Polaroid to the wall outlet for damage, such as tears or rips. Replace the cord, if you see damage. Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and inspect the metal receptors (prongs) for dirt. If the prongs are dirty, clean them with a dry cleaning cloth. Plug a separate electrical device into the outlet and turn it on to confirm that the outlet is performing correctly. Plug the Polaroid TV back into the outlet, and try again.<br /> </li> <li> <span></span> Twist the Polaroid TV's back panel towards you so that the connected cables and jacks are easily accessible to you. If you're experiencing problems getting a picture from your DVD player, inspect the connection of the audio/video cables to your "Composite In" jacks. There are three cables in a standard audio/video setup: a yellow cable, a red cable, and a white cable. Unplug all three cables from their jacks to reset the connection. Insert the yellow-tipped cable into the "Video" port, which is yellow-colored to make matching the cables easier. Insert the white-tipped cable into the "L" (left audio) port and the red-tipped cable into the "r" (right audio) port. Perform the same steps on the audio/video cable out ports of the DVD player, and try again.<br /> </li> <li> <span></span> Raise the TV's backlight level, if you're having trouble seeing the picture. Push the "Menu" button (located on your remote control), and the TV setup menu will appear. Use the navigation buttons located on your remote control to scroll to "Image," and push "Ok" -- located within the navigational buttons on your remote control. A list of options will be displayed, such as "Contrast," "Hue," and "Saturation." Choose "Brightness" from the options. Use the four-way navigation buttons to raise the brightness (make your screen brighter and more illuminated) or lower the brightness (make your screen darker).<br /> </li></ul> </li></ol>

Trying to hook up a dvd and wii with direct tv and can"t get sound out of wii! HELP Can you show me where to plug cords in?


Your TV has two sets of AV inputs. One on the side and one at the back. The Wii has a 3RCA cable ( Yellow / Red & White ) . Connect these jacks to the corresponding color sockets on the side input of your TV. Select that input on the TV and your Wii sound and picture should come on.
For the DVD player you have to get a 5 RCA component cable. This cable will have 5 colored jacks, connect the White & Red to the Audio in of the TV and then connect the Red/Blue/Green jacks to the component video input of the TV.Do the same at the DVD's end also. Setect that source on the TV and you should hear the DVD sound and picture.bobhifi_31.jpg

We are trying to hook our TV up to our computer to use it as a monitor. What cords do we need to do this besides the normal monitor cord?


if you want audio as well, it will depend on what kind of audio connection your tv has next to the VGA (computer monitor) connection. If it looks like the normal RCA audio, (red and white plugs) you will need to get a male headphone jack (to plug into your computer headphone or speaker out jack) to stereo RCA cable so you would have a headphone jack on one side of the cable and a red and white plug on the other side. Now if your TV just has what look like a headphone jack next to the VGA (computer monitor plug) you will need to buy a male to male stereo headphone jack cable. for both of these, just make sure the cable you get it long enough, or buy an extension.

I am trying to hook up a Memorex DVD player (MVD 2022), and I am not getting it to work. I need to see how to connect the cords or what cords I need. I can't seem to find how to download a manual.


Connect a yellow RCA cable from the yellow video jack on the DVD player to the yellow video input jack on the TV. This will give you the picture. For sound, connect a white RCA cable from the white audio jack on the DVD player to the white audio input jack on the TV. This will give you sound. Use the TV remote to select the input you connected the DVD player to, just press INPUT SELECT or VIDEO or the like until you see the DVD player's output.

Power on the TV and the DVD player. Place a DVD in the disc tray of the player and press PLAY.

If your TV has only a RF coax input, then you will need to buy an RF Modulator.

I have an ultra-slim 29 TV. I want to connect it to my laptop so that I can get laptop's output through TV along with sound. Please note i do not want to watch TV on my laptop (thats vice versa).


the picture is easy either a HDMI cord or a regular computer monitor cord should be able to connect depending on your laptops connections.

As far as the sound you will need an adaptor to go from a 3.5 mm headphone jack on your computer to a red and white RCA jack like on a dvd player and plug into your tv

I just bought a Dynex DX-LCD19-09 19 inch TV. I also have a Phillips home theater system. I have digital cable and I cant figure out how to hook it up to where i can watch regular tv but hear it through...


The only audio out jack on your TV is for the headphone on the left side of the TV. You need to purchase a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable, connect the 3.5mm jack to the left side of your TV and the 2 RCA audio cable ends to the audio in of your Home Theater and then select AUX 1 or AUX 2 on the home theater depending on which jacks you plugged into.
