Is the inside of the plug on your tv yellow? If so, then you can only connect the tv using a composite cable, which means it needs to receive a composite connection. In your case, you've probably got a dvd player that you're trying to hook up using component (red green and blue cable). Unfortunately, you can't just reduce a component to composite, so there aren't any plain old adapters that will work and converters are pricey.

Do you have a composite (single yellow connector) or your dvd player? If you're not sure, post the Manufacturer and Model # of your dvd player.

If you have composite out on the player, that's how you will have to hook it up. if you don't have a single composite cable, just use one of the connections from the component cable. Just remember to use the same color on both ends.

Where is the model number and where do I put it in online to get the correct service manual?


If it does not have a regular 3 line cable connector on back of tv screen you need to buy an adapter for it. I know most of the TV's I have including a older flat screen they have the HDMI connection or the 3 cable connection with yellow,white,red connections on back of tv for these older devices. Rich

How do I connect my Magnavox DVD/VHS player to my Element Flat screen TV?


Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4

My old TV does'ny have any place to insert plugs. Can I use It?


Normally older TVs do not have the audio/video inputs to connect the DVD player. Click here to find the adapter so you can connect the DVD player to it and from the adapter to the TV. The TV should be tune to channel 3 or 4.

Will not work


Hi, you'll want the 3 colored RCA cable to hook this up to an older TV.  Yellow is for Video Out on player and Video In on TV.  Then, on player, correspond the red and white to their holes for Audio Out, and match them with Audio In on your TV.  You may have 2 spots on your TV that are labeled Audio In.  Try them both - the one that works should very close to you Video In line.  
Hope that helps!

Failed to record


Need to connect both the 3-prong AV adapter *and* the firewire cord. The firewire connect alone does not work, and the 3-prong AV cord alone does not work. But connect both cords to the two devices, and it seems to work. 15 minutes and counting... Hope this helps someone.
