Good Day,

Not knowing what type of TV you own, let's try this:

1. Hook your Audio from your TV to your amp; TV's audio output to an amp input.(eg; video one)
2. Hook vcr/dvd/c box to inputs to your TV.(eg; vcr to video 1 on tv, dvd to tv's video 2)

Let me ask you how many inputs does your tv have?
Is tv, box&dvd HD?? Iwill help but give me more information. Thanks

When i turned on my Samsung LED television all i get is a blank grey screen with no sound. i have Comcast but my other tvs are fine. i can play a dvd on it with sound and screen, no problem and the menu...


Follow the cable from the Comcast set top box and see where it is plugged into the tv. Check what that jack is labled and then select that option on the TV menu. My guess is that the tv and dvd are not both on component 2, if the are then the set top box is not connected directly to the tv but to the DVD unit. In that case, if the cable set top box is connected to the dvd, then you might need to put the tv on ch 3 (or maybe 2 or 4) or you may need to switch a setting on the DVD box or remote that selects the TV/DVD option.

When tv is turned on with cable channels picture is snowy. when dvd or vhs tape played through tv the picture is snowy


Try using the video inputs
What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.
Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

When i hook my comcast box up to my samsung hln467w tv the picture is blue with flashes of green and fuzz


Hi,
First of all what output/input are you using for video for the comcast box? Have you tried using a different output? When you connect a dvd player or a different source does it work? First thing is to figure out if its a problem with the tv or a problem with the box. If the tv works fine then you have to figure out the problem with the box or the connection between the two. once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
lee

I HAVE A MAGNAVOX TV MODEL 255102-OODD, A MOTOROLLA (VERIZON) SET TOP BOX MODEL QIP2400/1006 AND A JVC DVD MODEL DR-MV150BJ. I HAVE TRIED ALL THE HOOK-UPS SUGGESTED BY JVC AND STILL CONNOT GET A PICTURE. ...


ok, The issue will be in the sequence you have things connected. The connections sequence is going to be controlled by what connections are available. I assume the Set Top controller is connection to your Antennea connection on the TV. Your TV should be on channel 3 or 4. The next step depends on what type of connectors you are using for the JVC DVD. I have an Antennea output on mine so I connected them in series. If you don't have an Antennea output from teh DVD player you will need to connect the DVD using Audio/Video cables which means you will need to connect to the TV alternate Source connector and to watch DVD's you will need to change to that source. Much like you would switch between regular TV and VCR tape on a VCR player connected to the Antennea connector.

How to hook up cable from the wall to epson ex30 projector


The Epson is a monitor only. It has no tuner, so no cable connections. If you have a cable box or VCR, or DVD with RCA Style Connectors (yellow, red and white) connect your cable coax to the box or VCR and then the video and audio outputs on the box or VCR to the projector and select the video mode.

I want to hook a system


you will only be able to get digital surround( dolby digital ) from your dvd player( by the coax or optical digital connections ) , the rest will only be in virtual surround

from the dtv box plug the yellow video jack(RCA) into the vcr video input , then plug the audio jack or jacks into the audio input on the vcr. from the vcr hook the audio out to the audio in on the reciever( tv/vcr/sat... input ) , then also connect RF out from the VCR to RF in on the TV .
for the dvd player hook the "s-video out" to the "s-video in" on the tv , then the audio L and R on same s-video input , then send the audio out connection on tv to L and R input on reciever dvd L and R input , then you will need to connect the optical from the dvd player to the reciever or coax connections for the dolby digital on the reciever to work
