ENTERTAINMENT COMPONENT CONNECTIONS TO TV

Hello,

I bought a 40" HD Samsung TV last week in the Best Buy West Nyack, NY store. I have a dvd player, Playstation 2, and VCR I would like to connect but have no idea how to do it. Even reading the instructions made it more confusing. I don't have the time to sit and figure it all out. Does Best Buy have a staff that goes to homes and makes the proper connections for you? If so please let me know. Thank you.

Can the Curtis Htib 1002 5.1ch system be connected di4ectly to my Samsung 4k UHD TV?


Yes, but there's almost no useful purpose. The HTIB needs 5 component inputs for the surround audio. Your TV doesn't provide this. From the looks of the connections, it looks like the video is basically a low res composite RCA plug, so no HD video from a DVD player. You may be able to run the audio output on the TV to FR/FL connection to use the sub and 2 speakers. (Mini 1/8" stereo to 2 RCA plugs. (Best buy or similar)

All hdmi connections not working on a samsung ue40c8000 every thing else seems to be ok. done a factory reset does this sound like a new board costly? regards. Norman


The tv Samsung refurbish main tv Turner signal board will set u back like $120-130 bucks + shipping and handleling and u must have to have some basic mechanicals skills like take things aparts and putting it back togther again to fixed this tv just for the used of those HDMI hubs ports again.My questions to u is?Does ur tv used 100% must require those useages of those HDMI hubs ports.Not just used the Samsung tv as is.My Samsung tv have the same problems.I just work around it by skipping all the useages of all those HDMI ports hubs of the tv altogther.Most poeple just used about like 3 HDMI ports hubs for like a HD cable box or DVR cable box and a PS3,WII games systems or Blu Ray DVD player.All these devices can go through hook up for like a RCA component cables hook up like AV1,AV2 and last one a HD hookup by a RCA component cable just add 2 more components wires like a green and purple connections or just buy a set of RCA components cable that design for a HD output.I did that,must more reliable set up too.Because those RCA components cables set up have more plastics in it connections for insulation holes for little shorts and sparks better than those HDMI ports hubs and HDMI cables barely help and the plastic for insulation is a joke almost non exiten.Those all dam HDMI ports hubs are all link into one path way on the circuit board,one dies or got shorted all dies and get shorted out.

I have a 32" flatscreen


Different video signals use different connections ...and we are speaking ONLY the video(NOT including the audio connections)
  • Composite Video (typically colored Yellow) uses 1 RCA connection on your TV
  • Svideo (uses 1 svideo connector on your TV) a circular connector with 4 pins in it
  • Component Video (typically colored Red/Green/Blue) uses 3 RCA connections on your TV
These are the common analog video signals....You cannot mix and match these and plug a composite (Sometimes called AV in menus) into component etc
If both your sources (wii/DVD) you want to use a component signal to your TV (which BTW is the best quality of the 3 I listed) you will need 2 component inputs on your TV
OR
run it through a high end receiver (that will act as your switcher)
OR
buy a small stand alone switcher, something like: http://www.amazon.com/4X1-HD-Component-Av-Selector/dp/B000BVIBGI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_4

settle for a lower quality DVD signal and use the Composite video out (yellow jack) into the Composite Video In on the TV and use the component for wii

I hope this helps,

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

How do I connect a DVD player that doesn't have HDMI connections to this TV?


you would have to use composite or component depends on what output it has. check to see what it has and check ebay or amazon. But cables from those rather than a brick and mortor store as it will be cheaper that way.

Hi, Just bought a 26" sony bravia tv. I don't use cable or satillite. I just need to find out what kind of cable I need to connect my panasonic DVD player to the TV and which port do I plug it into?


The best quality would be a HDMI cable, if your DVD player has a HDMI port on the back.

Any of the HDMI ports on the TV can be configured to take the audio over HDMI (digital audio) or over a separate rca stereo patch cable (menu option in the TV for analog audio).

So if your DVD has HDMI, just buy a HDMI cable and you're done. If you cannot figure out how to switch the audio input, there is no big harm in just installing a separate RCA patch cable between the two for the sound.

The next-best would be a component-video cable (Red/Yellow/Green) RCA cable, with a separate red/white RCA audio cable.

Alternately, if your DVD has a S-video port, that is comparable to component video. Then you would need a separate audio cable as well.

Last but not least, if your DVD player is ancient, it may only have a yellow video out connection, then red/white for audio. You then just need a standard yellow/red/white RCA component cable.

Samsung lns4051d 40in has horizontal lines across screen and additional "fuzzies" on hd channels


This sound likes the incoming signal is week. You should play a DVD player to see if the problem stays same or not.
If you try all sources ie HDMI, AV Component, etc...the TV show the same problem. There are two possibilites: T-Con board or main board need replacing. You should need technician to figure out the problem. Hope it help.

Black banding on full bottom half of 42mf231d/331d intermittent.


Hi Mike,
It sounds like you have a Lower Y Drive board going bad or just corroded connections. Believe it or not we have seen cases of that before. All these sets are manufactured over seas and no telling how long parts have been sitting ready to assemble and corrosion starts. It's best to have a service co. look at it.

HDMI, COMPONENT or SCART


hello, if your dvd player is'nt a hd dvd player it'nt not able to be converted into a hd you'll have to buy a hd dvd player,and for your sky plus you'll have to call your program supplier for the hd box,and yes the 4500 is the same as the 4710 its the same t.v. all even newer t.v.'s still offer the "s" video option for people who still want to use a old vcr with there newer t.v. for example thay can still use "s" video.

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality


Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!
