Maybe the problem is not from cables but from HDMI hole/jack, rusted or something

HDMI cables are actually wonderfully simple to connect. Once you have connected one end to the TV and one end to the DVD player, you will simply need to change your input channel using your TV's remote. Find a Input or Video source button and press it until the screen says HDMI. Now your TV may have several HDMI ports so you may have to try a couple HDMI channels before you find the right one.

Hope that helps!

I have just purchased a Magnaox ZV247MG9 and to convert VHS to DVD and my first DVD is blank. All the connections are made and I followed the manual, but am confused as to what happened.


I hope you have resolved this by now but in case you haven't: The only thing I can think of is that the disc was not compatible. Make sure to use one of the discs listed in the manual.

What is the best dvd player for a sceptre 32 lcd hdtv


Yes, an hdmi connection is the very best. However, if you are not able to connect your dvd player the other way, just choosing hdmi or not might not solve your issue. Hdmi connections allow upconverting and thus a higher picture quality for you.

My TV is a Sharp-AQUOS Model # LC52D64U, I have 2 DVD players. SONY DVD player Model #DVP-S530D and MAGNAVOX VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER/DVD PLAYER MODEL#MWD2206. Thanks Barbara


Sorry about the delay Barbara, I was looking for your clarification comments on the other question page. I didn't realize that you posted this information here in a brand NEW question box. No problem though, this will work just fine too. I will post the information on both question pages so there is absolutely no confusion.

First of all here are the links to each of the USER'S MANUALS for your particular system components:

SHARP AQUOS TV - MODEL # LC52D64U:


http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeEntertainment/LCDTVs/Manuals/tel_man_LC42_46_52D64U.pdf




SONY DVD PLAYER - MODEL # DVP-S530D:

http://www.docs.sony.com/reflib/docget.asp?manualid=8499&template_id=1&region_id=1&DL
=




MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER MODEL # MWD2206:


http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/c/cmwd2206_f7/cmwd2206_f7_dfu_aen.pdf




To view the Owner's Manuals with Operating Instructions for each device, just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and highlighted text just above. Each one of them will open a new web browser page for you automatically and allow you to view the information indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.


You did not mention exacly what model of DirecTV receiver you have, so first of all, I will just give you the generic instructions for connecting that device to your TV using an HDMI cable connection.




DIRECTV CONNECTION TO TV


Make sure your TV and DirecTV receiver are turned off before making any cable connections.
Now connect the COAX cable from the satellite antenna to the COAX IN jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
Now connect one end of an HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT jack on the back of the DirecTV receiver.
Then connect the other end of that HDMI cable to the HDMI INPUT 5 jack on the back of your TV.
See page 10 of your TV's USER MANUAL for a detailed labelled diagram of the rear input connections on your TV.


Here also is a link to a short video which demonstrates this basic HDMI connection procedure:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7P-yayRJ6c&NR=1




If you want to test your system at this point, you can. Just plug in the power cords to the DirecTV receiver and your TV, then turn them both on.
In order to see the output from the DirecTV receiver, you will need to select the INPUT 5 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 5 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the DirecTV Receiver on your TV.
That completes the DIRECTV to TV connection portion of the system hook-up procedure.



SONY DVD PLAYER CONNECTION TO TV


Your Sony DVD player should have come with an S-VIDEO cable and set of RCA cables (yellow / red / white ) included.
Here is a link to a picture of an S-Video cable in case you need to see one:


http://amazingbestsellerstore.tk/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/31nOF2e5DXL.jpg





And here is a link to a picture of a set of 3 color RCA cables:


http://www.cameratron.co.za/images/productcables/cables/rca%20to%20rca.jpg




Connect one end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO OUT on the back of your SONY DVD player.
See page 8 of the SONY DVD Player manual.
Then connect the other end of the S-VIDEO cable to the S-VIDEO INPUT 2 terminal on the back of your TV.
Now take colored RCA cables and one end of the red and the white cables into the LINE OUT (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of you SONY DVD Player.
Then take the other ends of those cables and plug the red and white plugs into the INPUT 2 (AUDIO L / R) red and white jacks on the back of your TV.
In order to see the output from the Sony DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 2 input mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
See page 11 of the TV manual, button number 7 on the remote control button layout diagram.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 2 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the Sony DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc inserted.
This completes the SONY DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.


MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER TO TV CONNECTION

I will describe the connection procedure using the basic 3 color (yellow / red / white) cables which were included with the unit at purchase.
COMPONENT VIDEO cables are also a slightly higher quality option but would have to be purchased by you separately.
Take one end of the 3 color RCA cables and insert the colored plugs into the corresponding colored VIDEO OUT and AUDIO (L / R) OUT connections on the back of the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player.
YELLOW cable plugs into the VIDEO OUT connector.
RED and WHITE cables plug into the AUDIO (L / R) OUT connectors.
See page 7 of the MAGNAVOX manual, METHOD 1.
Now take the other ends of the 3 color RCA cables and plug them into the corresponding colored INPUT 1 connections on the back of your TV.
YELLOW cable plugs into the INPUT 1 - VIDEO IN connector.
RED and WHITE cables plug into the INPUT 1 - AUDIO (L / R) IN connectors.

In order to see the output from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player, you will need to select the INPUT 1 mode using the INPUT button on your TV remote.
Keep pressing the INPUT button repeatedly until you see INPUT 1 on the TV display screen.
At this point you should be getting an input signal from the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD Player on your TV as long as the DVD player is turned on with a disc or tape inserted and playing.
This completes the MAGNAVOX VCR / DVD PLAYER to TV connection portion of your system hook-up procedure.
Recording content on the VCR from an outside source will require additional connections which are described in detail on page 6 of the MAGNAVOX manual.

This completes the most basic hook up of your entire system using the cables which were supplied stock with each piece of equipment. As I stated, other options are available for purchase and the instructions for connecting these types of cables are all in the various OWNER'S MANUALS provided above.


Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Joe.

I cannot record digital when I try to set up my Magnavox ZV457MG9 (DVD). The unit will only record in the external L1. I have a Comcast box.


This is normal for the ZV457MG9 units. The Magnavox ZV457MG9 does not have an analog (NTSC) tuner; additionally there is no digital (ATSC or QAM) tuner either. It will only record on line in (L1) which is a composite input (limited to SD). The HDMI port on the recorder is an HDMI out to TV, not an input. The component video jacks are also only outputs.

The manual for the Magnavox ZV457MG9/F7 is available here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf . The unit was manufactured for Magnavox by Funai; thus another link to the manual is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/ZV427MG9.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

Cindy Wells
(If your DVD/VCR recorder had a tuner, it would record off a coaxial (antenna) cable input. Many DVRs can record off the HD connection (HDMI or component); that may be a better option for replacing this Magnavox unit.)

Where do to plug in the cord to connect the tv to the DVD player?


Hello

You have several options for connecting your DVD player to your GV42L FHDTV10A - HDMI,

Component, S-Video and Composite (AV) inputs. Based on your home theater configuration, you can
decide which option is the right one for you.
connected to the HDMI input of the VIZIO GV42L FHDTV10A for optimal results.

To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable available up to 10 meters or less.

1. Turn off the power to the LCD HDTV and DVD player.

2. Connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI output of your DVD player and the other end to the HDMI

Input (white color area) at the rear of the LCD HDTV.

3. Turn on the power to the LCD HDTV and your DVD player.

4. Select HDMI using the INPUT button on the remote or side of the LCD HDTV, or directly by
pressing the HDMI button on the Remote Control.

a) If you are already using the HDMI 1 input for another component, or you do not want to use

the HDMI 1 input for the DVD player, you can connect the DVD player to the HDMI 2

connection.

b) Refer to your DVD player user manual for more information about the video output
requirements of the product.

DVD does not play on other players or computer


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description indicates that the last step in the DVD recording has not been performed on these discs that were recorded on the Magnavox. This would be "finalize" or instruct the Magnavox that no other files would be written/recorded on the current disc. Thereafter, the Magnavox would complete the DVD disc making it playable in any other player. Normally, finalization would take a bit of time to complete.

Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

CONNECTING HDMI CABLE


The HDMI cable plugs into the TV and other sources. Make sure you have the correct HDMI cable for your set. Each cable handles both audio and video. Turn it over if it does not fit in. It only fits one way.

You need one cable for each source and your TV has to have at least one jack for each source or you need to buy a switch box, if it has only one and you have several. You then must select the correct source on your TV for the input. Your satellite box (DVD or VHS) each must have a HDMI jack to use this cable on each.

Let me know how you make out.
