  • mtyler48 Jun 24, 2008

    I'll try blowing the jack out but since it never worked from purchase it probably is a bad jack. thanks for the contact to customer support however the link for the manual is not my tv it is for a dvd player.

  • mtyler48 Jun 24, 2008

    i have some knowledge of electronics and can attempt the replacement. i didn't want to do that if it was a setup issue.

Hi,

Based on your postings, it is not a setup/configuration issue, it is a hardware issue. Your TV has only two (2) source settings: line or cable. The "line" has two possible connection points, front and back. the front works but the back does not and you'd rather use the back. Corrective measure would require that you open the back of the unit, chances are 2 ~ 4 screws, the 3 RCA females would be soldered unto a smaller PCB. As VOTIT has posted, check the yellow RCA (video). Most likely problems would be cold or no solder, cracked PCB trace, loose connector, stretched/open wire or even in some cases, wire(s) simply not connected.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Tech48 has it correct. It is a common problem for poor solder connections to exist on the jacks. While rare, the video switching chips have been known to be defective as well which would show up as the audio working without the video. The audio section is switched using a different chip. You have stated that this has never worked. If by chance, the unit is still in warranty, you should be able to get this repaired for no cost. Even if the chip is defective, this is a simple repair and should not take very long.
Keep use posted.

Since the audio works on the back jacks on the TV, you have it plugged in right. If you switched the audio and video around you would not get audio from it.

If you have audio from it, you have the right input selection on the TV

Since the audio and video both work on the front jacks of the TV you know that the DVD player is not at fault.

This only leaves one option, the jacks on the back of your TV for the video are not working. It could be a bad solder connection. But it could also be the buffer IC that is on the input board in the back of the TV.

Those are the only really likely problems. Check the solder connection, and if they look good you may just need to take it to a service center. Replacing the buffer IC may not even fix it. You may have some other problem like a shorted transistor or somethiing in that cicuit. The only real way to tell is by doing some real electronic troubleshooting. Anything else is just a guess.

If you have a multimeter and an O-scope and the knowledge of how to use it, you can check the components around that cicuit. It could even be a faulty switching IC. It is going to take a little experience with this type of troubleshooting unless you just have a broken solder joint connection.

Let me know if you want any more help from me.

    One other thing, try connecting a different video device into that jack on the back of your TV. If it does not work, just like the DVD player, that isolates your problem to the TV.



    If you have the option to select different video inputs (like composite, s-video, component) from one source (like video 1 or video 2) just double check that and make sure you have the proper video type selected.

    If you are plugging your cables to video out and audio out then you will not get a picture or sound. The cables need to be plugged into the video in and audio in of your TV. There is definitely possibility that the only input on this TV is in the front as the TruTech brand seems to be made rather cheaply, there is a lot of dissatisfaction with this Target house brand around the Internet.

Before doing all this reparing work just clarify your sely that you are inserting the wires of video in the proper jack try interchanging the wires in the jacks then start further some times the silly mismatch creates this problem.also try cleaning the inner side of jack by blowing air through your mouth or air blower if you have it,minute dust can also be the problem.then try the further solutions.

this is the link to help you to get the manual of your product.

What is doubt in this?

the video jack in back alone is not working

Posted on Jun 24, 2008

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 24, 2008

    you are telling that the video jack in back side alone is not working right??

    there is nothing to do with settings of TV i think.

    u just need to change the back jack alone.

    that is not a difficult job. if u have a knowledge about electronics u can check it easily and change it.

How to connect samsung dvd to samsung tv


Follow these steps: Component Video Connection 1. Get a component video cable. This cable has 3 sets of connectors, one each for the red, blue and green color signals.
2 Match the connectors to the appropriate video output jacks on the DVD player. Component video outputs will normally be labeled Cr/Cb/Cy. The Cy output jack is matched to green, Cr to red and Cb to blue.
3 Run the cable from DVD player to the TV. Most TV connections are made from the back panel, but this may vary.
4 Match the connectors to the appropriate video input jacks on the TV.
If using S-Video Connection

Whehe do plugs go on back of unit? have direct tv


First off, you need to hook up audio and video by using an A/V cable to connect the DVD player to the TV, yellow, white and red jacks are coded, match the jacks up, put one end of A/V cable to DVD player OUTPUT jacks and the other end to INPUT jacks in back of TV. Also same with Direct TV receiver, hook top set of jacks to TV, with A/V cable, also connect coaxial cable from satelite to matching satelite input jack. Connect power cables, and then you're set. Good luck to you!

Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.


It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
(I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

Cable connection part broke off in back


Are you talking about the part that connects the cable from the wall to the tv? I do not really understand which part on tv or vcr. It is true you can use the vcr as the tuner. You still have to connect the cable from the wall to the input cable jack on back of vcr. Then you hookup the R/W/Y rca plug- in cable from the back vcr output jacks (which are also color coded) to the tv's jacks. If you only have two jacks on the tv they will probably red and black. It doesn't really matter. Go from your video output on the vcr to the video input of tv, then use one of the audio outputs on vcr and go to the audio input on tv. It should work like that.

Sony CD/DVD Player DVP-NS501P


There are several ways to connect the TV to the DVD player but you can only take advantage of the progressive scan option on your player if you use component cable. Component cable has three input jacks on it and they are colored Green, Blue, and Red. Your TV/amplifer must have component input jacks on the back of it to use this cable. If it does, then the input jacks on the back of the TV are usually labled Y, Pa, and Pr. The Y input is for the Green input jack, the Pa input is for the Blue input jack and the Pr is for the Red input jack. Once you have these plugged in you will next need to hookup the audio/vidoe cable that came with your DVD player that has a Yellow, White, and Red input jacks on it. The Yellow input jack is for Video and the White and Red are for audio. Both your TV and DVD player will have inputs for these so just match them up. If you do not have component inputs on your TV then just hook up the audio/video cable and it will work.

DVD player hook-up problem


Using the composite video connection method is pretty straightforward. you will be dealing with one video cable (marked in Yellow), and two audio cables (marked in White and Red) Red is right channel and white is left channel if stereo, if mono use the white marked cable. Look at the back of your DVD player you will see the video out RCA jack (marked in yellow) plug one end of the video cable into this jack, the plug the other end of the cable into the TVs Video In jack (marked in yellow) Then plug the audio cables into the Audio Out RCA jacks of the DVD player Red marked cable to red jack White Marked cable to white jack. After this is done plug the ends of the sother side of the cable into the Audio input of the TV white to white, red to red. At this point you should have video and audio once you set the menu of your tv to accept input from the Composite input and the audio jacks. I hope this helps.
