Scart is not always two-way, if that is the way you have hooked it up. A lot of newer appliances have one-way scart connectors, and the vid/av plugs are also wired in one direction.
Are you trying to record from the bult-in tuner to the video? Then you would also have to wire from the av-out of the TV to the video in on the video/dvd... essentially doubling up on the cables.

How do you hook up a VCR player to a TV without a cable box?

Common connection is a scart cable. You will NOT be able to record TV on video tape anymore because the transmissions are now all DIGITAL and VCR's are only ANALOGUE. You WILL be able to play existing tapes if your tv has analogue capability.

How to connect Sky digibox & DVD recorder to Samsung UE46ES6300 TV

Buy 2 hdmi leads and use one to connect sky TV decoder to the hdmi 1 socket on the back of the TV and if your DVd recorder has an hdmi socket attach it to hdmi 2 or leave it on the scart socket
as you don't name your dvd recorder the connections available are unknown
hdmi is the best followed by component which requires a 3 cable lead 3 video (video is red green blue plugs ) audio is red and white which is a 2 wire lead which all are needed to get video and audio to your TV
scart is the lowest quality along with composite video

Problems with Philips vhs recorder/dvd player

You only need coaxial cable to pick up TV stations broadcast via an aerial. If your TV has sockets to connect via HDMI or SCART, then any players can be connected via them. So if the adapter box picks up TV signals, you connect the main aerial cable to that and it should have a coaxial out socket, that should be connected to the aerial in of your TV. If you are recording to an analogue video from the adapter box, then that will need to be connected via a scart socket or other connection.

Bought a new 42' flat - "No Program or Weak Signal"

Hi,you have not said weather you are using a scart lead(euro connecter)or an RF lead,if you are using the later don't,please connect the vcr to the tv via the scart to scart euro connecters,use a good quality scart lead(the thicker the better)as the thicker ones generally are 21 pins connected meaning it should be auto switching so as soon as you play a tape it will come straight on.

ALL cable is digital.
What type of TV do you have? Does it have any scart conections on it? If not connect the Cable box with a scart lead to your VCR select the AV channel on your VCR, connect your VCR to your TV via the RF connection, (if it has not got one, its not a TV, its a monitor). Tune your TV in to the video channel.
You do not need an RF modulator for a home TV setup, whoever told you that is a fool.

Souud delay on tv /amp

Instead of connecting each device (sky&dvd rec.) to the TV separately, I would simply hook up the sky to dvd recorder (connect the sky output and dvd recorder input), and then connect the dvd recorder output (must be called "play out") to one of the available recorder inputs (which could be a dvr, an empty tape input, etc)of your amp. However, you'll still have to establish a feedback between your dvd recorder and your amp. Therefore, if the dvd rec. supports it, you'll have to hook up the rec.out, which is on your amp.,to on your dvd recorder. After all these audio connections, you will only need to make a video connection among the sky, dvd rec., and tv. Get a video cable to hook up the sky video output to your dvd recorder's video input, then do the same thing between the dvd recorder's tv output and tv.

I have a LG 50 LCD TV Model: 50LN5700-UH that has a black screen. There are a couple of things I have tested and replaced. First off there is audio but just a black screen. I turned off the lights and looked for signs of back lights. When I did this there were no visible signs of lights. In addition, I did the flashlight test. Which showed visible signs of lettering on the screen with the flashlight. Which if I understand correctly it may determine that the T-Con board is functional. I ordered additional LCD's from Shop Jimmy and replaced the bad sticks. About half were replaced. I reassembled the TV and I am still getting no video, but I still have audio. However, this time all the LCD's are functioning so now the screen is still more grey than black because of the working LCD's I replaced. What voltages and at what points should I be testing to narrow down the problem, or what other problem-solving technique should I be testing? One other thing I should mention is there no visible signs of swollen capacitors or any signs of burn marks. I am 99% sure I connected all of the cabling up correctly, not 100% since this was my first attempt but I am a little less confident I put the filters in the correct way. I had the TV disassembled while I was waiting on the LCD's to ship and when I re-assembled I was less confident if I picked up all 3 or 4 filters and set them down, or if I make have flipped the filters to keep the circuit board on the front cover from being damaged. Hope that make since.
