Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Scepter I accidentally hit the accept button but my problem is not fixed. it's being used as a tv So I tried Component Cables and Composite cables (I've never used the VGA cables on it). No change. The back light comes on, the Scepter logo comes on, then goes away, the screen remains black, but the back light stays on. I tried several different sources. ie: DVD player, PS3, satellite. Thinking it may be the connector (where it is soldered to the board, I also tried the composite plugs on the side, to no avail. Oh also the OSD doent work, Can't change channels volume source.would it be a problem with the inverter board? is there a way to test the inverter?

    I'm pretty sure it's the power supply. I would almost bet it is a dielectric capacitor problem in the power supply. It worked fine for a while almost 2 years than it just went out. When you turn it on, the backlight comes on, the sceptre logo comes on, then fades away, tnen the screen stays black. the power light stays blue, the backlight stays on too. but i have no picture or sound. As far as I have been able to figure out, no picture with sound would be the inverter, no picture with no sound would be the powersupply, and the way they put these caps right next to the heat sink, i would bet that they are the cause.

I have a DVD player (Digitron) which I want to connect to my new Phillips TV but I don't know how to make the connection. Someone told me that I must use the remote control to do this but there is no


First with the TV and the DVD player off, connect the cables with the best possible connection that you can. The cable with the red,white and yellow plugs on both ends is a Composite Video cable. If this is the best output on your DVD player, connect the cable to those jacks and to the matching color connections for a composite (or A/V) in on your TV. Alternatively, use two (usually the red and white plugs) for your audio connection and get a separate S-Video cable and connect that to your TV and DVD player. Composite and S-video both carry only an standard definition (480p) video output.

Your DVD player may have other connections. You will need to buy the other cables to connect these but you will get a better picture (high definition video) if you can use component or HDMI cables. The component video cable uses three plugs (usually red, blue and green) to carry the video signal. You also use the RCA audio cable (red/white) to carry the audio between the TV and the DVD player. HDMI cables carry the video and sound on one cable and looks somewhat like a large USB cable (the side that connects to the computer - rectangular). These cables are available at many stores that sell electronics but you can find them at better prices at online stores that sell cables.

Once you have these cables, turn on the TV and look for a button on your remote (or the TV) that says Source or Input. Press this button several times until you are at the input that corresponds to the one that your DVD player is connected to. (Some of my TVs have more than one of a given input; so you have to match AV1 or AV2 for example.) Then turn on the DVD player. (Note for some TVs it is possible to delete inputs from the source list when they aren't used. You may need to edit this list to see the correct inputs.) If this doesn't help, try turning off the TV then turn on the DVD player first and then the TV and locate the correct input.

Without knowing the TV or DVD player models, I can't identify all of your inputs and how to determine the best one for you to use. If you add a comment with the model information, I'll give you additional assistance if I can.

I hope this helps.

(the inputs on all of my TVs have labels in a small font. Often each input choice is surrounded by a box so that you don't accidentally plug in the audio cable at Component 2 and the video cable at Component 1. You may want a magnifying glass to make sure that you correctly identify the source that you need to find in the input list.)

How to connect samsung dvd to samsung tv


Follow these steps: Component Video Connection 1. Get a component video cable. This cable has 3 sets of connectors, one each for the red, blue and green color signals.
2 Match the connectors to the appropriate video output jacks on the DVD player. Component video outputs will normally be labeled Cr/Cb/Cy. The Cy output jack is matched to green, Cr to red and Cb to blue.
3 Run the cable from DVD player to the TV. Most TV connections are made from the back panel, but this may vary.
4 Match the connectors to the appropriate video input jacks on the TV.
If using S-Video Connection
1 Get an S-video cable. This cable has a single round connector with 4 pins.
2 Attach one end of the S-video cable to the S-video output jack on the DVD player.
3 Attach the other end to the S-video input jack on the TV.
Composite Video Connection 1 Get a composite video cable. These types of cables are frequently bundled with two-channel audio cables. Composite video cables are tipped with yellow plugs.
2 Plug one end of the composite video cable into the composite video output jack on your DVD player.
3 Plug the other end into the composite video input jack on your TV.

Yellow is a composite output and should be plugged into a composite input, whereas Y indicates the COMPONENT input of the TV. If you don't have a separate composite input use a scart to phono (rca) adapter in your tv's scart input.

Hi,

You have more than likely connected a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type) to the COMPONENT video input sockets on the back of the TV.

COMPONENT requires 3 RCA type video cables, COMPOSITE only uses one (the yellow plug). If you connect only one video cable to any of the three component inputs you will get a black and white picture although you will still have audio if the red and white cables are correctly connected.

If you are using a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type), please check the connections on the rear of the TV and make sure you have not connected to a socket marked "COMPONENT", "Pr" "Pb" or "Y". If you are certain the cable is correctly connected, please try another cable.

If you have verified that you are using the correct sockets on the TV and it still doesn't work or if you are using any other type of cable, please let me know which cable you are using and the model number of the TV. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

Hi, I bought an aquos lc-30hv4u and it has no rca jack etc, only two plug ins labled display input 1 and 2. I am guessing its just a pc monitor. How would I use it for cable tv video games etc


There are lots of inputs on the back behind the cover. Three inputs (1, 2, 3) have an S-video, composite video (A/V) and component video jacks. The cover will come off if you press the two top hook at the top of the cover. Then rotate the cover towards you. There are also a DVI-D port and 2 coax (antenna in) jack. The tuners included are for NTSC (analog OTA) and CATV (analog cable). The front of the PC (VGA) and a S-video or composite (A/V) video input (called Input 4).

Composite and component video jacks are all RCA jacks (as are the associated audio jacks for the input). Composite cables uses three RCA plugs on each end - yellow for video, red and white for Right and Left audio. Component video cables have three plugs on each end that just carry video (red, blue and green); the audio is wired separately with just 2 RCA red/white plugs. Match your colors from the device out to the TV input.

Changing inputs can be done with the remote or the input button on the top of the TV. The input button is to the left of the power and Main Power buttons.

Connecting your game system, cable system and all will depend on the units. For the best picture, use component video cables for mose set top box. Some cable boxes have a DVI port - use that if the box has that option. If they do not have component video out, then use composite or S-video cables.

The owner's manual is available from Sharp as a pdf: http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads.aspx?downloadtype=ownersmanual . Use the drop down menus as follows > LCD TV, Model not listed, LC-30HV4U then click Search. The picture of the inputs are on page 10.

I hope this helps.

How to hook up a game console to an Olevia 232-T12


It all depends on your game console.

You can connect most to the Component, Composite, or HDMI inputs.

For modern consoles, use HDMI cables or provided Composite cables.

HDMI = Single cable and single plug (Best)
Component = Red, Green, Blue, Red, and White plugs (Average)
Composite = Yellow, Red, and White plugs (Worst, used for most older consoles and older TVs)

My componet/av only shows black and white on my vizio vp422


The 37" Vizio I just bought has a very confusing feature where the same input can be used as either the Y channel of the component or the full video channel for composite. If you plug a component source into the TV and then select the composite input ("AV" on the remote), you will see a black and white version of the full component signal (makes sense as the Y channel is just the luminance component). As sad as it is, I was stumped by this for a while until I happened to hit "COMP" and got full color. FWIW, the manual warns about this, but it really doesn't emphasize the point. I wonder how many returns they get because of this.
