The red, blue, and green are the component cable hookups. What you have w/ red, white, and yellow is called composite or on most TV's (AV) See if the TV has a side port for like a camcorder, etc. It will not work by hooking into the red/blue/green as they are different signals.

It is possible that your yellow jack may be separate from the red/white audio left/right jacks.

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board . In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Plugging red to red, white to white, and yellow to SPDIF (black) and got no picture with sound. Plugging red to red, white to white, and yellow to green and got black and white picture with sound. How...


First you need a component cable to solve your problem.Since you have not mentioned what device you are connecting to your TV, I''ll assume its a DVD player or a settop box.There is a Red and White audio sockets + Red / Green / Blue component video socket. Just make sure you connect the corresponding two sets of jacks at both end of your TV & DVD player and everything will work. bobhifi_21.jpg

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...


it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections. Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho) if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!

I,ve connected my wii to the led tv using a wiii component cable(5 leads) but have used only 3 of them red green & blue 1,s leaving a red & white 1 left i have good picture but no sound help please


your cable is split into two different connections for your tv... the red green and blue cables are for HD only. They are their own little set. the yellow cable is your video cable for normal tv's. the red and white cables are sound cables, also for normal tv's. I would unplug the red, green, and blue cables, and use the yellow, red (right sound), and white (left sound).

Good luck!

The yellow blue and green.. which one is video plug?


What you have is a component cable. By the sound of the cable it seems like you might have this kind:

http://www.componentcable.net/images/Component%20Cable%20PS3.jpg
The Yellow / Blue / Green / Red cables are all meant for video. The back/side of your display will either have matching colors, or it will just have a yellow, white, red. You want to plug in the Blue, Green, and Red cables. If your display doesn't have this, it's not capable of component video, in which case you will want to plug in the Yellow / White / Red into the AV slots.

Trying to add Wii, but no video only sound.


The manual says you can get an optional Component Video cable (RVL-011) for the Wii. There is apparently one unused Component Input on theDenon where you could connect it. You would still have to use the Red/White analog audio.

The Yellow is for Composite Video only. It's lower quality and not compatible with Component Video (3-wire).

In the short term, why don't you just run the Wii's combined Composite video / analog audio cable to the provided Composite Inputs labeled DVD, VDP, TV/DBS, VCR-1 or VCR-2 on the Denon?

It would not be necessary to have BOTH Composite and Component video from any device, much less the Wii.

Ponder this, why do you need to run the video from anything to the Denon at all if your TV has mutliple video inputs? TV's specialize in video, theDenon specializes in audio. You can always extend the Red/White audio cables to reach the Denon.

Trying to hook up the dvd player to the tv and I figured out how to get the color back on but the sound is terrible it sounds like its echoing. Can't figure out the blue green red combination for white red...


Your TV probably has several different ways of connecting video. One is component, which uses three cables. They are red, green, and blue (RGB). The video output on your DVD player will match this color scheme.

Another scheme for video is composite (because it combines the red, green, and blue into one cable). Composite video is usually a yellow "socket". It is simpler to connect, but the video quality is noticeably poorer than component (RGB).

Another scheme is S-Video. This is one cable (round and black), but you will see four pins inside the connector (and four holes in the "socket"). This accounts for the three cables in the component scheme with the convenience of having only one cable. The picture quality is almost as good as component as well.

In your case, there may be confusion between composite and component. If you have red, green, and blue sockets on both the DVD and TV, then make sure you use them and connect them color for color.

Now for the sound, this is simpler. Red is the right channel, and white is the left. Make sure you connect red to red and white to white. Then, viola, everything will be right.

I hope this helps.

Hook up of dvd to tv


hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

simplify- blue green red= component
red white yellow=composite

*wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

Just need to know where to plug in the red, green and blue cords


The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.
