Greetings:
I just bought one of these at a 'Goodwill" store near me yesterday. It came with nothing, no cables or adapters of any kind. And, of course, the battery was dead as a doornail. First item on my to-do list was, read the voltage/amperage ratings. 9 Volts DC at 2 amps. (or 2000ma, if you like) OK, I have a lot of wall warts and such around, and know how to change the tips. No problem. RIGHT! The tip is a very obscure and hard to find type, but I did find a type that will work. (Radio Shack sells replacment tips, and a type "H" would be the closest I've found thus far) The center of the tip is Positive, and the outside negative. There are two ports for power... One on the battery, and one on the body of the player. (In the rear of left side, clearly marked) I couldn't find any 9 volt adapters that had anywhere near the amprage needed, so I went with my next best adapter, one rated at 10.6 volts DC. This happens to be an old HP adapter for a printer or scanner, I forget which. (I have many) So, I know that there will be a voltage drop when the power adapter is under load, as very few are regulated. Close enough. The amp output on this one is a bit less than 2 amps, but I figure that a fully charged battery can help 'fill in' the rest. (I charget the batt overnight, until I got a green light on it) Batt is rated as 7.6 volts DC at 2.8 amps. (Lithium ion type)
OK, so we should be in business. But, as I have read elsewhere, after a few minutes of play, the screen looses synch. Goes all sideways and rolling at sametime. This CAN be a sign of insufficent power supply. I next go to a power supply I made just for this project, using two small old computer power supplies, giving me exactly 9.2 volts DC (Regulated) at upto 12 amps. Plenty! (If anyone wants to know how to use computer PS units to get custome voltages, write and I'll provide source of tutorial)
I never did get around to making any adapter cords for the A/V stuff... No point. This unit, like all the others I've read about, has a really bad design flaw. I suspect it's a defective run of, or impoperly selected type of, or improperly heatsinked horz output transistor. It's either the wrong type, (Not rated high enough, aka: too cheap!) or it was not designed in rightly, (IE: No allowance for heat buildup) or the company bought a bad run of these. I could be wrong, of course, I haven't done a post mortum on it yet. But thaqt's my best guess at this point. I've had this thing less than 24 hours. Paid $20.00 USD, a steal if it worked at all. Robbery if not. If I come up with a real solution, I'll post it. If I discover the actual cause of the much reported loss of synch, ditto.

My cable box is hooked up but no signal can u tell me whats wrong


If you hookup your TV directly to the coaxial cable, bypassing the cable-box, do you get a few channels? If so, then the coaxial cable is carrying a signal, which is good.

How are you hooking the output from the cable-box to the input(s) on the TV? Coaxial output port on box to coaxial input port on TV?
Red/blue/green "component" outputs on box to matching inputs on TV? Red/White audio outputs on box to red/white inputs on TV? HMDI output from box to HDMI input on TV?

You have to "tell" the TV which of the inputs:
* coaxial (with TV set to Channel 3 or 4)
* component
* HDMI
to "listen" to.

Tip

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Why am I notI getting a picture?


Make sure your system is hooked up correctly. This is the number one reason for a blank screen. To ensure all hookup connections are firm and correct, remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion (this will help fully seat the connections). For more information about connecting the system, check the following hookup steps:

Audio/Video Cable to a TV
Audio/Video Cable to a VCR
Make sure you are using all licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems and may not work correctly.
Make sure the system has power. If not, go to the No Power Light instructions.
Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to ensure it is locked in place. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.

Important Note: Inserting the game with the Power ON may result in a blank screen. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks

There may be a problem in one of your hookup cables and not your system. Try purchasing a new connection cable (where to buy). You can also try borrowing the cable from a friend to see if it solves your problem before purchasing a new item.

If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, click here.Note: pictured above is the redesigned Super NES. The original Super NES uses the same hookup steps listed below.

Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the Stereo AV cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the red end of the cable to Audio "in" Right. Connect the white end of the cable to the Audio "in" Left. Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
Note: If you have a mono television with only one Audio input, click here for a diagram of how the hook-up will look. The Y-adapter pictured is optional; you can also simply leave the white cable disconnected instead.

Connect the rectangular (gray) plug of the Stereo AV cable into the "multi out" connector on the back of the Control Deck.
After the system is connected to the TV:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the system. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch on (toward Game Pak).
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It is often called: input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!
If after following these directions you are not able to view the game, try our Troubleshooting Tips.

I wanted to know if there is a way to hook up the sound from a Panasonic DMP-BD655P-K Blu-Ray player to my existing Yamaha DVX C310SW home theater system. I know I can hook the Blu Ray directly to the TV...


Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.

Coaxial cable


Most newr TV's do not come with a coaxial hookup anymore, you either need to use RCA cables for Audio and Video, Component Video, S-Video Jack, Digital Audio Jack or HDMI Input.

DVI CABLE AND AUDIO CABLE. NO EXPLAINATION OF HOOKUP OR USE


Plug the audio cable into the LIME GREEN port on the computer.

You can onlly use a DVI cable if your Video Card has that kind of connector.

Trust me, you don't need one. Use the D-shaped 15 pin connector.

Element 32'' LCD TV, has picture but no sound


The S-video cable doesn't have hookups for audio, only video. It's better than the video coaxial cable. But, you still need to hook up the right and left audio coaxial cables.
