This TV doesn't have a tuner and thus no RF (coax) input. It should be connected to a set top box by component, composite or S-video cables. Component video (with three RCA video plugs on each end) will provide the best signal (a separate cable with two plugs on each end carries the audio).

I wish that I could be of more help.

Can I connect my fire hd 10 to my tv using a cable.


It seems as if it is possible to connect your Fire HD 10 to a TV via a HDMI cable. In order to do this you will either need:
  • Amazon HDMI adapter for fire tablets
  • Micro HDMI/ USB to HDMI cable
Here is a helpful article with ways to connect to a TV and links to the types of adapters on amazon.

How to set up a cable box?


Connect cable wire out of wall to cable box input. Attach cable wire or HDMI cable from cable output to the appropriate tv input. Turn on cable box & tv. Goto source on tv and set it to the corresponding input that you connected to the back of the tv. If your tv does not have a HDMI input then you will not get hi definition tv. You can get digital. If you got a digital adapted you follow the same procedue but instead of a cable box you connect the digital adapter.

Quasar tv/vcr combo


A converter box is not needed to connect a DVD player to a TV. However, you do need a single cable with red, white, and yellow adapters orconnecterson one end and at least yellow and white on the other end. Ok if you have red; just don't worry if there isn't a hole to plug into.

I JUST CONNECTED THE PC TO TV WITH VGA TO RCA CABLE BUT PICTURE WON'T COME ON THE TV SCREEN


Make sure that you have the correct display mode selected. While many connections like a VGA to VGA connection will automatically detect, I don't think a VGA to RCA adapter will. Go to control panel/display and see if your computer has detected the second display.
Also make sure the RGB or RCA is selected as the input source on your TV.
Once these are both set correctly you should be in business!

How do I connect roku 2xs to sony trinitron tv


If your Tv does not have the HDMI port you can use the RCA cables. If your Tv does not have the RCA video/audio ports you will need an adapter from Radio Shack for hooking up a video camera to a cable Tv. This adapter will allow you to hook the Roku to the adapter with the RCA cables, then the adapter hooks to the Tv with a cable just like a cable box. This adapter is also a pass through for other devices like a cable box and or another DVD player. Hope this helps FixYa up.

I have a Jensen TS2750J model ... am trying to hook up and be able to process the HD that the home I rent a room from receives that signal from their cable company ... but don't know how to get my TV...


Hi.

The setting on your tv for the best signal is the HRC setting.
HRC stands for High Resolution Cable.

If you connect the cable to the blue jack, and set your tv to HRC, when you scan for stations, it should pick up all of them, not just the analog cable stations.

Now, some cable companies require an additional adapter, provided by them, in order to recieve the cable signal properly.

This adapter is called a digital transport adapter.

You should contact the cable provider, and see if the adapter is required in order to recieve their signal properly.

I hope this helps you out.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

How to turn on rgb from lap top to tv.


In order to connect your laptop to your TV using RGB, you need an RGB adapter. RGB is also known as component video; it breaks up a video signal into red, green and blue. laptops do not have RGB outputs. However, many laptops have VGA, DVI or HDMI outputs. An RGB adapter connects the single VGA, DVI, or HDMI cable to an RGB cable, which is actually three different cables tied together. INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Connect either the VGA, DVI or HDMI (in the order of increasing video quality) cable to the VGA, DVI or HDMI port on your laptop, depending on what is available. 2. Connect the other end of the cable to the side of the RGB adapter with the single input. 3. Connect the RGB cables to the red, green and blue ports on the other side of the RGB adapter. 4. Connect the other end of the RGB cables to an available component input on the back of the TV. 5. Tune the TV to the component video input you used through your television's menu. 6. Turn on your laptop. The laptop should now display on your TV screen.

Vga cable color array i want to connect a pc to analo tv i want to make my own cables


Unless your TV has a component (Red/Green/Blue) video connector, you are out of luck for connecting it using the VGA output. Honestly, it's more trouble than it's worth, and VGA to TV adapters are very expensive. A much easier solution would be to get a video card that has a composite or S-Video output and use that instead. A lot of video cards manufactured in the last 5-10 years already have S-Video outputs on them, so it's possible your video card already has it. There's a picture of the connector on this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-Video

Even if your TV doesn't have an S-Video input, don't worry - you can get an S-Video to Composite adapter for under $10.

Hdmi connection for camcorder to hdtv does not work.


If i am to understand you correctly, you are are connecting a mini-HDMI adapter to the TV, and another adapter to the camera, then connecting the two adapters together.. i believe this may be an issue..

Too many adapters can actually cause signal issues, especially when converting a digital signal to analog, then back to digital, or vice versa.

Check to see if the manufacturer of your camera has an adapter to go directly from the camera output source to your TV's input.

Cam > adapter > TV = Correct
Cam > adapter > adapter2 > TV = Signal degridation
