Are you using AV or component cables?

*Solution for AV Cable*
Check to make sure the cable is fully plugged into the port. Having it even just slightly out of the socket will render no video. If this doesn't work, try plugging it into a different port on your television to make sure the port isn't bad. If you still have no video - the video part of the cable could be bad and you might need a new cable.

Also make sure that if your cable has BOTH component and AV connections available that the switch at the end of the cable near the Xbox is set to "TV" as opposed to "HDTV"

*Solution for Component Cable*
Also check to make sure that all the video connections are fully plugged in. If even one of them isn't plugged in fully, it could render no video. Also make sure that you have them properly plugged in to the right color. If you're just quickly connecting it to the back of the TV without proper lighting, it can be easy to confuse the blue and green connections.

When using component, make sure that the switch at the end of the cable near the Xbox is set to "HDTV" as opposed to "TV".

My dynex tv only shows channel not available message?


Okay- the three cables (red, white, and yellow) are called RCA plug connectors. They are commonly used to carry audio and video signals.
Plug them into your Xbox according to the color codes- red cable connector to the red socket (jacks); then white to white, and yellow to yellow.
Now connect these leads to the RCA input jacks in the back of your t.v. - maintaining the same color code connections (red to red; white to white, and yellow to yellow)
The RCA input jacks on your t.v. should be labeled with an input number, to distinguish itself from the other inputs, like HDMI, S-Video, and such.
After plugging in your Xbox to the wall outlet or surge strip, turn it on.
Turn your t.v. set on.
With the remote control that came with your t.v. set, open the menu bar, scroll to... and open the "External Output" menu.
You should see a list of [however many] inputs your particular t.v has. Scroll to the input number that the 3 RCA cables are attached to, and press that number as the default video screen.
Exit the prompts and your Xbox video screen should be displayed.

Video Does not work on New Magnavox TV


Hi, it sounds like your problem is that you've selected the wrong "video input" for your DVD player. Your new television most likely has at least 3-4 (sometimes 6-7) different inputs for video. With your DVD player connected and turned on, press the "Source" button on your TV to cycle through the different inputs. Be sure to wait 2-4 seconds between selections to give your TV enough time to switch inputs. If your DVD player has "color coded" output cables, it's most likely a "component" video connection. See if one of your video inputs on the TV is called "Component". Some other video types are Video, DTV, HDMI, SVideo, Component, Composite, RGB, PC Input, etc...

When ever i plug in my video and audio cable the red white and yellow ones, into the back of my Toshiba 26CV100U TV i don't get the picture i only get the sound what should i do ?


The Red, White and Yellow (AV) cable is for composite video and stereo audio. The yellow cable is the video part of this, the red and white are the audio --
3 possible solutions for you:

1. Make sure you match up the color of the plugs with the sockets on your tv.
2. Make sure you're not using the Red, Green, Blue (RGB) input on your tv which uses similar plugs, but has a different color coding.
3. Make sure your tv input is set to the AV input. This is often controlled by the "TV/Video" button on your remote, and the AV input is often called "Video 2" or "3" depending on the model.

I got a new Samung LED TV and can't install my reciever to show up on the input for the RCA logo


The RCA cables are color coded. look on the back of the box , make sure the colors match up to the colors on the box and that you are plugged into video out not video in. Next trace the cable to the TV and this time make sure you are plugged into video in . The video input on the tv should have a number , video 1 or 2 or 3 and so on. Remember that number. Next on the remote for the tv set press input or source untill that input is highlighted . Press ok or enter button to select the input , make sure the box is on and you should be good. If it doesnt work , try another cable

CONNECTING XBOX 360 TO A LCD PANASONIC VIERA TV


You need to Connect via, the Component Video, the xables are Blue, Red, Green, ALL Video, and go color to color, from, Xbox to TV, and you Select EXTERNAL INPUT, on TV. OR You must use the Composite, Video, which is Yellow, for Video, again, cables go color to color. The Audio, as you have discovered, is Red & White. Now, if using HDMI, you do not usually need the Red 7 White audio, as it's all in the one signal, though the HDMI. Again, you select the relevant, INPUT On the TV, And also select the output on the Xbox, and you should be all OK.

Hook up sony blu ray


You should be able to hook it up with a component video cable. A component video cable is a cable that has 5 color coded RCA style ends that are Green/Blue/Red/White/Red. The Green, Blue and one of the Reds is for the video and delivers the signals needed to produce the HD picture and the White and the other Red is for the audio to provide you with stereo sound.

The Video cords will plug into the section labeled component video facing up and down and the audio will plug into the side by side section. So if you plug into Component input 2 then you would plug in the audio into the audio section of input 2.

If you have a separate surround sound system you can connect one of two ways.
1. Plug a separate Audio (red/white) cable from the Blu Ray to an available input on the surround sound.

or

2. Plug all inputs into the TV (as noted above) and then plug a separate Audio (red/white) cable from the tv labeled "Audio Out" to an available input on the surround sound system.

How to connect surround sound system, at the moment its connected through cable, each time we use the dvd player we have take them out of the cable box then into the dvd player, we have a LG 42PC55 tv.


In order of picture and sound quality -- from best to worst:

1. The best way to connect, assuming your TV and A/V Receiver and/or Cable Box have the jacks, is to use a HDMI cable ( this cable is for both sound and video).

2. Use Component Video out to input (3 RCA plugs, Red, Blue & Green) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

3. Use S-Video out to input (1 din plug) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

4. Use Video out to input (1 RCA plug, yellow) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

Be sure to select the correct inputs on your TV and Audio/Video receiver when you are watching TV. For example if you have connected your TV to HDMI 1 and DVD to HDMI 2, you will not see or hear anything if you don't select the correct input on your TV and A/V receiver for the input you want to see and hear.

Detailed connection instructions will be found in your owners' manuals.

Hope this helped you. :)
