How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


Things You'll Need:

* Component cables

Instructions


Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

Tips & Warnings

You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

Jvc th-s3 won't turn on...blue light flashes briefly and then goes out


Hello,

from my experience, I think your player is having a power problem. It must have received excess voltage/irregular power supply which has damaged an IC or capacitor on the power board of the player.

Sometimes this excess power supply might damage the player's main board. This is why it is advice able that you use step down for your player, because DVD player don't need excess power as something might be damaged.

To solve this problem, you will be needing a meter. Open the player, use the meter to read the components on the power board as it will help you discover the component that got damaged and you can then replace the bad component.

But if you do not have the knowledge of fixing this problem, you might be needing the help of a service technician.


Take care.

My system doesn't work when i'm watching t.v.? It only works while playing dvd's..


"Doesn't work". Do you mean no TV audio at the TV? No TV audio from the receiver? No Video? Both?

MOST IMPORTANT: Is this a new setup or did the problem appear after working for awhile?

I'm going to guess it's a new installation with no audio while watching TV.

Generally, most TV watching originates with a cable box. There will probably be some sort of analog or digital audio output on the cable box. Connect it to the Aux In or Optical Digital In on the receiver as applicable. Select the appropriate input when watching TV.

The video from the cable box will depend on the box, too, but it appears this unit will only accept Composite or S-Video In. If your cable box has a higher quality connection (Component or HDMI), I'd run it directly to the TV for the best video but still use the digital audio feed to the JVC. Let the specialized parts of the chain deal with their specialties - audio or video.

Of course, if your TV has only one HDMI, you will have to choose which source uses it. HDTV would get my vote for it as it needs the best conenction for maximum enjoyment. If the TV has Component (3-wire) Video inputs, I'd use that from the receiver for DVD viewing. I have both myself and see no difference with DVD video between HDMI and component video.

If you lack the manual that speaks to all of this, go to retrevo.com, register and download it for free. It’s a combination JVC TH-C40 C50 and C60 manual.
