Question about Vizio VO47L 47 in. LCD TV

Open Question

We have a 47" Vizio LCD tv. We have a Wii hooked up to the plugs on the side (red, yellow, white) and have perfect sound. We are trying to hook up a dvd player into the plugs on the back using a component cable. We can either have color video with no sound, or black and white video with sound. I don't understand how to hook up the dvd player to the back of the TV using this component cable.

SOURCE: DVD won't play movies in color

RCA cable connectors (red,white, yellow) are usually for an analog setup. You could still use these for "component" setup, but know the difference with color stamps as follows:

Component color stamps are "blue, green, red" ( blue is marked Pb, green is marked Y, red is marked Pr)

RCA color stamps your using are "red, white, yellow"

Here are the proper hook up method for "Component" using your "RCA" connectors:

On both the TV and DVD component setup:

Plug the red RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pr (red)

Plug the white RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pb (blue)

Plug the yellow RCA fitting in the component port marked "Y (green)


Be sure this setup is the same for the TV's component input ports, and the DVD's component output ports.

i-Note:

For optimum picture quality you may want to purchase component cables as the gage is thicker giving better impedance match resulting in better picture and sound quality.

SOURCE: vizio 47" lcd no picture no sound has power

this could be one of two problem. first, check if you have back light. If you do then the problem is with the M/B. Second, if you don't have back light then the inverter is bad and needs to be replace.

SOURCE: My componet/av only shows black and white on my vizio vp422

The 37" Vizio I just bought has a very confusing feature where the same input can be used as either the Y channel of the component or the full video channel for composite. If you plug a component source into the TV and then select the composite input ("AV" on the remote), you will see a black and white version of the full component signal (makes sense as the Y channel is just the luminance component). As sad as it is, I was stumped by this for a while until I happened to hit "COMP" and got full color. FWIW, the manual warns about this, but it really doesn't emphasize the point. I wonder how many returns they get because of this.

I'm trying to hook my DVD player to my tv its a vizio flat screen but I keep getting a Aucum Signal... What do I do


hook your dvd player into video 0ne two or three, there indication is red white and yellow. red for left sound white for right sound and yellow for video. then turn your tv to video output to what ever you attatched your rca cable to either vid 1 2 or 3. the remote should have an input selection, good luck this is easy and if you hook the cables up to the red white and yellow connections either on the side front or back of the tv it will detect it normaly, if not choose it from the remotes selection tab, called input selection. hope this helps.

We are trying to hook up our wii console how do you get it to work. TV says invaild scan freq.


You have to hook it up to a standard Yellow/Red/White RCA jack. If it doesn't work on one, try another. Make sure you're on the proper input you hooked it up to on the T.V. If this doesn't work, try hooking it up to a different T.V. to rule out the Wii as the problem. Try hooking up a DVD player to the same RCA jack as the Wii was on the Hitachi. After all of these troubleshooting methods, you should be able to get your Wii properly hooked up.

Trying to hook up a dvd and wii with direct tv and can"t get sound out of wii! HELP Can you show me where to plug cords in?


Your TV has two sets of AV inputs. One on the side and one at the back. The Wii has a 3RCA cable ( Yellow / Red & White ) . Connect these jacks to the corresponding color sockets on the side input of your TV. Select that input on the TV and your Wii sound and picture should come on.
For the DVD player you have to get a 5 RCA component cable. This cable will have 5 colored jacks, connect the White & Red to the Audio in of the TV and then connect the Red/Blue/Green jacks to the component video input of the TV.Do the same at the DVD's end also. Setect that source on the TV and you should hear the DVD sound and picture.bobhifi_31.jpg

If you're using the HDMI cable with 5 wires, the red, blue and green wires are for video and the red and white wires are for audio. If your TV has a component IN RCA jacks, they connect there. If you're using the 3 wire cable, yellow is for video, and the red and white is for audio. You will NOT get HDMI pictures with this setup so you will have to go into the input selections and choose composite video input on the TV menu. Get a connection diagram from Visio's website or look in your owners manual if you have one.

How do I hook up my Wii to my 32" Emerson lcd hd tv? I have my dishnetwork satellite hooked into the dvd player and it's hooked up to the TV. On my remote I don't see a "game" button like my older Emerson...


I found a better way and it works fine. I have a new 32 inch Emerson, with only one composit hood up ( which won't work with the wii) 2 HDMI's ( again does not hook up to the wii, the monitor hook up for PC, red and white ( yellow plus is not there it's for a stereo they told me), and the usb hook up ( which is more for pictures I was told by the company).The answer was to hook my RCA plus to the red and white under the composite, then hook the yellow into the green plug of the composite, and behold- my will now works fine.

Connected to tv but no Wii screen when we switch


Was trying to use the component option on the screen, as this had the red, yellow and white plugs shown. Eventually tried all the other options and found that it was plugged into Video 1! Works perfectly. Should try all the options on the TV!

How to hook up wii to surround sound


Put all the wires to the tv. Now you need another A\V cable (yellow, red, white) only use red and white from, audio out on tv to audio in on surround system and set it to TV. OR Put the red and white from Wii to surround system and the yellow to the tv. this way you have to use surround to hear it. The other way you can use the tv or both. The first way is ideal if you have an extra cable.

How to hook up wii to surround sound


You need to connect your amplifier to your TV, (Video Out of Amp to video In of TV), then select the input where you connected your WII in amp.
Or you could just connect the yellow plug to the TV directly, and the white and red plug to your amplifier.
A note thou, Red and White will not give "True" surround sound as it has only 2 channels, you need to connect a digital input to the amp to get true surround.

Let me know what happens
