These are an alternative connection to scart leads, with 2/3 round connectors instead of the squarish black one. on a dvd player, video etc you sometimes have the option of using these instead of a scart plug (though not both toigether) and are also usefull to connect up video games machines such as the wii and xbox. normally the connectors are colour coded so red to red, yellow to yellow, etc, and would normally be switched to by the av button on your tv remote

Harleynut, you should see AV1, AV2 on your TV where the cables go. Choose one or the other. Then, Place the yellow in Video and the White in Audio L and the Red in the audio slot next to it.

I HAVE ASAMSON DVD AND VCR AS A UNIT BUT ALL MY MOVIES IN COLOR ARE SHOWING ON BACK AND WHITE.


That is hard to diagnose with only that info to go on, but I'll give it a try for you.

If you are hooking the player to the TV with COMPONENT cables, you may have the matching colors switched around. Red, Blue, and Green all have to match up and be fully inserted. Also be careful of the AUDIO (Sound) wires as well because there is a Red one in that set as well. It's easy to get them mixed.

If you are hooking the player to the TV with COMPOSITE cables (Yellow, with Red & White for sound) be sure the yellow wire is in the correct hole and FULLY pressed in.

In all cases, be sure the TV itself is also set up to recognize the inputs correctly too. Sometimes the jacks on the back serve 2 purposes and the TV needs to be set up as well. (Especially if it has S-VIDEO inputs too)

I hope this helps, or at least gives you a few things to rule out... so that the next person can narrow it further for you. GOOD LUCK!

Dont realy have a problem just ned to know how to set up to my tv


There is an output for this device colored red, white and yellow. So the red and white is for the audio and the yellow is for video. Use an RCA cable with the same color. plug it at the back of your dvd matching the colors of the output jack and plug the end of the cables to the input part of your tv. So the red and white should be plug in to the "AUDIO IN" and the yellow should be plug in to the "VIDEO IN" on your tv, Set the tv to video and press play on the dvd.

We just purchased a toshiba DVD video recorder DR430KU and can not get it to work with our Samsung bit screen tv .. we have satilite tv


I had a similar problem. After disconnecting my devices and rehooking them again. Was that you may need to reset the DVR to channel 3 or 4. Or go to settings and see if you see a a menu that reads "Reset to Factory Setings." Try clicking that and see if you can record from you DVR after you do it. It may be that your DVR was on the wrong channel of the DVR. I found this true with mine, it was set to channel 3. How it jumped to that channel is a mystery. Make suire your connections are correct in the back of the T.V. Red to Red, yellow to yellow, or white to white and "In to out." On the back of my HDTV it was so different. The cables from my DVR were R, Y, W. But on the back of my T.V. it was Green to Yellow, Red to Red Stereo, and White to White Mono. My instructions did not match what I had on my T.V. that is why it is very confusing. And 2. the instructions are too small for me to read. I called Customer Support for Toshiba T.V.'s. They told me to call Customer Support for Toshiba DVR. Which I did and they were also not able to help me. Then they told me to call Toshiba Customer Service for Toshiba DVR. I went back and forth. I did mention that before or the old way used to be that when you had an old VCR, you always had to put or switch the channel to Channel to 3 or 4. But they did not know what I was talking about.
I finally reset the DVR to factory settings myself. I am almost 100 per cent sure that it will work now. Good luck, and I sure hope this helps.

Connect dvd recorder to cable box and hdtv


I have posted a tip that should help you out with your problem follow the link below but there is one minor variation for connecting to your TV.

On step 3 of the connections section substitute the follow for your situation.

You will need 1 component cable (Red/Blue/Green/Red/White cable)

3) Connect the Green/Blue/Red connectors to the back of the DVR labeled "COMPONENT OUT" matching the colors. Connect the same ends to the input of the back of the TV again matching the colors.

4) Connect the last two connectors (Red/White) to the back of the DVR to the AUDIO IN on the TV.

Other than this variation all shoud be the same.

Good Luck...

Hook it up to the tv


If your hooking it directly to the tv depending on how old the tv is use one of the inputs. Hook the two red and white to red and white and the yellow to the video in input. If it's an older tv you will need whats called an rhf adapter. Hook your color codes together and use a cable cord to go from the antenna out to the tv's uhf input. I hope this information was helpful........... : )

Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

I'm confused how to connect my DVD player with the TV. which cables connect where. I dont have a user manual.


Mukhhe,

good day,to connect your DVD to TV screen follow this steps.

1) prepare your RCA cable ( 3 colored cable yellow/red/white)
note: always remember this

yellow = video
red and white = Audio (left and right)

2) at the back or front display of your TV screen you'll see RCA socket marked as "AV1 input" "AV2 input" etc... if your screen is only mono sound you can only see two sockets Yellow=video white= audio

3) at the back of your DVD player connect the RCA cable following the color code yellow to yellow white to white and red to red. after you connect the cable to your dvd player now connect the other end of thr RCA to your TV screen input.

make sure you'll connect it to "A/V input" not "A/V out" then after connecting all the cables, from the remote commander of your TV screen press a button indicating "A/V" some mark as "TV/AV" press this button until your screen display the back ground display of your DVD player.

cheers,
mark

Color to black and white and back again


Since you're using a composite cable (yellow RCA) that carries both luma (brightness) and chroma (color) information, it's not the cable that is the problem.

That means it's either the DVD player itself, or the TV. If you have another video device (VCR, etc) that you can connect to the TV, try that. If the other device also goes from color to black and white, then it's your TV. Otherwise the problem is your DVD player.

Since your TV only has mono audio (white RCA, but no red) I would recommend getting a new TV if the TV is to blame.

I am hooking up a dvd player with the black and white wires


The most basic hook up you can do is use a composite AV cable(yello/red/white). This cable should have come with your player. Check your TV it has those available inputs. They are also color coded. On the back of your player, there is only one yellow colored jack so there should be no problem in identifying where to plug the composite video cable(yellow). Put the composite audio cables (red and white) to the DVD player Audio Out jacks (red and white). Then plug the other end of those cables on the back of your TV. Just make sure they are INPUTS on the TV and colored the same - yello/red/white.

Then find your TV's correct viewing channel. It is not channle 3 or 4. Depending on the TV brand, it may be called AV, INPUT, VIDEO, GAME, SOURCE, AUX, EXT., etc. To find that channel, you may need to check the instructions on your TV manual. Most of the time, there are buttons on the TV remote control or on the TV itself. Sometimes, you need to go into the TV Menu.
