Question about Toshiba 36AF61 36" TV

Open Question

After hooking up rca cables from the dvd to the TV and once everything was powered on, the color went out on the TV. I uplugged everything and replugged it, tried to find the color adjustment on the menu, and reset the TV set to no avail. What could be the problem? I see color against the black screen while moving through the menu. Is that an indication that the set still works in color?

Good day.
Your unit is still worth. It may be a caused of loose contacts along the circuitry. It can be remedied by resoldering the terminals particularly the chroma section and the crt circuit.

RCA DRC247N DVD Player No Audio


The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work

First connect the RCA cable to DVD player as seen below, At the left side there are 2 yellow sockets, any of them can be used for video, and White/Red for sound, On your TV Side follow the same colors and use Video Input group of RCA sockets.
Good Luck

MY TV will not show color on the tv .I have a protron PDS2315 .I don't have the cables that came with the DVD player Does that make the deference?


Hi zapchenk,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.com.

The most common caused of "No color" fault when viewing movies through DVD player are :
1. Wrong TV/DVD format - If your TV is a NTSC system format and not knowingly your DVD player is set to PAL/Secam system format, then there's no color generated to your TV due to incorrect video frequency signal coming from the DVD player.
Solution : You have to sync/match the system format of the TV and DVD player. Check first the system format of the DVD player through the menu. Try to change it from PAL/Secam to NTSC.
2. Wrong hooked up - Since the problem is in video, you have to check the video hooked to your TV and DVD player. HDMI jack is the best option to avoid wrong hooked up because it come with Audio and Video in just one cable. If you are using one RCA cable to connect the video, make sure that it is hooked up to Video in of the TV and Video out of the DVD player, it is usually color yellow RCA jack. If you are using the component video hooked up, you must have 3 RCA cable for video alone. It is color coded as green(Y), blue(Pb/Cb), and red(Pr/Cr) RCA jack.

My advice is to check first the system format and then the video hooked up.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Good luck and take care!

Kind Regards,

Howdo I hook a DVD player up to this model?


The easiest way would be to hook it up using the composite cables from the DVD player to the Rear of the TV.

First safely and slowly turn your TV around you should see inputs in the rear of the TV.

Second identify your composite inputs. They will be visible via the standard RCA Composite colors, which are Red(Audio), White(audio), and Yellow(Video)
Third Once you have found the RCA Composite Inputs, Take the cable which are inserted into the DVD player and Plug it into the TV's Composite Inputs.

Once all that is done, turn on your DVD player. Then using your TV's remote Press the "TV/VCR" / "Source" / "Input" button on your remote till you see video from your dvd player displayed on your TV.

How do I hook up a dvd player?


Hello Andy, Hi!, you can hook up your DVD in 3 ways. 1. using standard RCA cables, 2, using Svideo cables, and 3. using HDMI cables. Depending on your player. I suggest you buy the RCA cable. they are color coded so the yellow goes to the player Video out to the TV video in, red and white cables goes to the Left and Right channel of the player audio out to the TV audio in. thats it.

Hook up


Hi:
This type of hook up is only for television viewing, to view the DVD you might consider purchasing some componet cables, they are color coded so hooking up is a snap, on the back of the DVD player you will see three RCA type connections Red/Green/Blue. componet cables are also these colors, connect one end of the cables to it coorsponding color on the back of your DVD and the other in the same color connectors labeled componet 1 input on the back of your television. You will also need a red and white RCA connector also for the audio as this is sound, a total of 5 connections will complete the hook up. Or you can go the simple route and use RCA type cables that come as yellow/red/white but for the best picture use componet cables this will allow you to watch your movies in HD.

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


ruettab,

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

cheers,
mark
