You need the cable that has yellow red and white. It is called a composite cable. Be prepared because this may not work and you may need a coaxial cable. I am assuming the vcr has a coaxial output. Keep in mind that the television will have to be switched to the correct video input when using the yellow red and white composite cable. Keep in mind that if using the coaxial cable the television will have to be in the tuner/tv input and tuned to channel 3.

How do I attach mjxf45 tail motor to v913 circuit board (esc red wire black wire and white wire?thanks cessnaman

Both hellicopters have the same wiring for the tail motors (white blue) and I think the same motors. Anyway the wiring for any 3 cable esc with any 3 cable motor doesn't have a standard. If you place them "wrong" the motor will not spin to the side you want and you have to make another combination. Generally on rc planes, bellicopters, cars etc the three color cables have black color for ground red for voltage and white for singnal. You may also see black , red, wellow or brown , red, orange coloring with the same meaning. These cables are used most on receivers and peripherals connections.

Connect a Wii to VCR

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,

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.

No picture just sound

Check if the cables are connected properly from the VCR to the TV.

Most likely you are using a 3 cable set up to connect the VCR to your TV. The colors at the ends of each cable are red, yellow, and white. If you have audio, then I presume that your red and white cables are connected, but your yellow cable is not. Find another cable that is yellow just like the other two cables, and connect it to the connector on your VCR labeled "video" and then connect the other end of the cable to a hole in your TV labeled "Video in" or just "Video". It should be located very close to the audio connectors in the TV that the VCR is connected to.

The color seems messed up on its missing red or something..however if i turn the xbox on the colors are perfectly fine...whats going on? ive tried to adjust the colors but that does seem to...

If you are using component cables (red-green-blue) for your cable hook-up you may have problems with the red one. Check to make sure it is inserted properly at both ends. Note that there is also a red-white pair for sound. This is not the red one in question.

Tried to hook up hd cables and seems good but no audio tried to hook up but can't get to work

You cannot get AUDIO from Component Video, as it is only VIDEO, you must get another set of Cables RED & WHITE, and connect them from the AV, AUDIO Jacks, OUT on the "Sender" The DVD, Receiver etc, to the AV AUDIO IN on the TV. So you will have 5 Cables connecting BOTH Video & Audio. The Component Video, uses Blue, Green, & Red, these go color to color on the RCA Jacks at BOTH ends PLUS the Red & White Audio, color to color at BOTH ends. .Hope that clears things up.

I seem to have misplaced my instruction manual for my DVD Recorder Model SVR2880, so I can't hook up the unit without the manual. The only manual I have is in French & I don't know French. Could you...


The simplest way is to use a TV cable. One end is plugged in cable OUTPUT of DVD the other to the Cable INPUT of TV.
Other way RCA audioVideo cables (Generally Yellow is video, White is Left Audio, Red is Right Audio. But is not really important becaus
the jacks are color coded. Red to Red, Yellow to Yellow, White to White. Wires must comme out OUTPUT of DVDplayer and enter into INPUT of TV.
Even if colors are different there are not many possible combinations.

In the French manual, you can look at the pictures. They are rather explict.
Hope it helps.

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.

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.
