Audio video ports bent and a cable port completely pulled out

Our house was vandalized over the weekend and although they pulled out the cords with one of the cable posts completely they bent up 3 of the audio video ports - homeowners says we need estimate to repair it we are not sure where to go for estimate and our neighbor who works for cable says that the one port is not fixable.... If we get quote in writing that it is non repairable homeowners will cover replacement of television. How can we get a quote if fixable or not?

You will need to contact a regular tv repair shop and if he is authorized for your brand,that is a plus. He may say the whole board would need replaced,which will be un feasible.....he may be able to re attatc and solder the jacks back to gether. Either way that is where you start!

All lights flashing


Unless the electronics is broke you seem to be having a wiring related issue. Besides a loop then a short in cable or at a port.

Verify no apparent physical stress displayed on unit or cabling and the correct power supply.

One test for bad electronics is by removing all wires, then look for bent & touching conductors in any of the ports from a poorly crimped cord damaging the port. Try to straighten back into shape - 8 per jack or once the touched eliminated if meta fingers bent my not be able to use that port and check the cable ends for cause and don't use.
Without any cords return power. Only the power light should remain on after about 3 seconds. Any other light display says problem and after verifying correct power supply call it toast - it broken.
If only the power light is lit then connect the 8 conductor (4-pair) Ethernet cable from the cable or DSL modem. That port should light if that device is alive. Note: No telephone RJ-11 size 2 or 3 pair cords, if it fits in a telephone jack you got the wrong one and can damage a port physically. RJ-45s used in Ethernet
are noticeably larger.
Assuming no strangeness in the other lights with the cable/DSL modem connected add one cord at a time to the other ports. Stop and remove any that caused/causes the initially observed condition that is the problem leg; try a different cord and examine the problem cord for physical damage (cuts, tears, squashed blemished area, ends pulled such that conductor open, or two or more wires shorted on an end)
As to internet connection try with only link to Cable/DSL modem and one cable to a PC and then see if the PC is obtaining an IP address via DHCP filling in the interface settings. If Windows "ipconfig" if Mac OS/X or Linux "ifconfig eth0" at the command prompt in a terminal window. Ping the entry for gateway, if no lost packets the connection is sound PC through e-switch to modem. Enter as new problem with modem type and PC operating system if this is a problem after the wiring is straightened out.
When the switch is working correctly Power light is steady ON and Port lights are mostly ON but blink with traffic down that leg.
Does this help?

Connect a Wii to VCR


Hello
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and the power cord and hook them up in the back of the Wii.
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and plug it into the 'audio-in and video-in sockets on your VCR.Make sure you match the cable colors with the input colors.i.e white goes with white,yellow with yellow and red with red.
Take the RCA cable which looks like the picture below,

1_22_2012_6_55_20_pm.jpg
and plug one end of this audio/video cable into the 'audio out' and 'video out' ports on the VCR.Make sure the cable and ports colors match.
Now take the other end of the RCA cable and plug into the 'audio in' and 'video in' ports on your TV.Again make sure you match the color connections.

Hope it helps.

How do i get laptop onto tv?


Set it on top of the TV, use glue if needed ;-). Just kidding...

Well, if both your laptop and TV have an analog video port, you can use that. Or, if they both have an HDMI and/or DVI video port. Otherwise, your probably SOL.

For the analog video port (DB9 connector, looks similar to a serial port), you will need a video cable first (see Radio Shack or similar store). Both the TV and the laptop need to be COMPLETELY OFF prior to physically connecting them together with the video cable (not necessary for HDMI or DVI) or you could FRY one or both of them! Prior to turning on the TV, the laptop's video resolution should be adjusted to the TV's native resolution. You'll also have to run sound patch cords from the laptop to the TV's audio in if you want sound (Not needed for HDMI).

You "may" need to setup the video card (either somewhere in the OS, or in the BIOS setup screen) to display to the external video port.

An HDMI or DVI port setup should be much easier to do.

Obviously, you'll need to tell the TV which port(s) to look for the incoming video/audio via your remote control (or look in TV's menu system for that).

Hope this helps, let me know how it turns out...

Hello I have some movies on my laptop but now I want to wach them on tv on my TV I have only scart-input,experts told me I need a cable with D15 connecting from my laptop to one transformer to my...


Most Laptops use S-Video as a way to display video on your TV screen.
You can pick up a S-Video cable at your local Electronics store IE Radio Shack. Before purchasing the cable ensure your TV has the correct input.

The four main types are (in increasing quality):
1. S-Video [2 types: 4Pin as in picture'7Pin]
Port: http://www.coloredhome.com/video/s-video...
Cord: http://akamaipix.crutchfield.com/graphic...
2. VGA
Port: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/co...
Cord: http://www.thisishowyoudoit.com/blogimag...
3. DVI
Port: http://vocaro.com/trevor/blog/wp-content...
Cord: http://www.tech-faq.com/dvi-hdtv-connect...
4. HDMI - also transfer sound signal
Port: http://media.bestofmicro.com/,2-3-49323-...
Cord: http://www.k1cable.com/images/hdmi_000.j...

All of these do the same thing: The laptop sends the video information through the Port and the Cord. Your TV Recieves that information in its port. Numbers 1 to 3 do not transfer sound, so you will need a separate adapter for your headphone to TV Audio. #4 HDMI transfers both sound and audio data, so you won't need a separate cable for sound.
Check if your TV has corresponding ports. If not, you can buy adapters. This is an example of a VGA to RCA(Red/White/Yellow analog cables) and S-Video

I have a Dell computer that runs Windows Vista and I want to hook it up to use my TV as a monitor to watch a webcast. Please advise.


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

Sony Trinitron KV-19TS20 Screen displays purple static or awful image.


This unit needs a tuner. A new one from Sony will run over $70, so I doubt that it is worth it. It is possible that poor ground connections could cause something like this, but the symptoms seem a bit too severe. I think it is time to invest in a newer set.

MY IEEE 1394 port does not recognise camcoder


Although this post is rather old, I can tell you that the mini 4-pin firewire port is the bane of my existence. The 6-pin port is made rather sturdy with heavily shielded cable. The 4-pin uses the same heavy cable, but does not have the strength to support the cable, if it happens to droop. This causes pins to get slightly bent out of alignment, and upon re-insertion, you can get crushed pins if you are not VERY careful. Examine both your cable end and the port on your camera/deck - you will probably find one or more of the pins have been pushed back. Pray that it's the cable that's dead, and not the port in your camera/deck. I have a Canon XL1 and a Sony DSR-40 with the same problem - crushed pin in the unit's port. I'll have to spend $$$ to get these ports replaced.
