Just need to know where to plug in the red, green and blue cords

Hi, I don't know much at all about my TV. I bought it at a garage sale. The cord to connect my cable/DVR box are red, green and blue, but on the back of the tv, there are various red, white and yellow connections. How do I plug it in? I've tried many combinations, but can't seem to power on the cable/DVR box.

    The cord has red, green and blue cords on both ends of it. The cable box has red, green and blue spots, so that part was easy, but the tv has red, white and yellow. So, the red goes to the red. But how do I connect the green and blue? To the white or the yellow?

The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.

If you have red, white and yellow connections on your cable/DVR box, match the colors to make the connection with the TV and select video 1 on the TV.
The TV will not work if you're trying to use the red, green and blue from your TV.
Good Luck.

I have a cablevision box with a set of red, green and blue wires and another set of red and white wires. How do I hook the cable to tv to get cable? The colors on the front and back of the Mickey tv are...


hi. The colored cord you described are for high definition, there should also be some jacks on the back of the cablevision box that say "video out" "left""right"

Find those, and the video out is the yellow in jack on Mickey, and the Left is the white jack on Mickey

If you can't find those, then use the cable tv out from the box to hook it up to your tv.

This is all that is needed to hook up really, just the coax cable from the box to Mickey.
I know Mickey has a antenna cable jack on the back.

Just run a cable from the box to mickey, put Mickey on channel 3, or 4, depending on what the setting is on the box, and you should be good to go!

After having my dish network upgraded to HD and installed, i notice on my tv now that the green and red colors are not there, predominant on channels like ESPN that use these colors most. I._E.: football...


Sounds like one of the cables got plugged in wrong.

Look at the back of the HD box and there should be a cable with 5 ends on it (Green,Blue,Red, White and Red).

Often times a flashlight can help make sure you see the colors clearly.

The Green,Blue and one of the Reds is for video. The White and other red are for Audio.

When you unplug the connector the connection it is attached to is also colored. Check to make sure the colors on the cord match the color they are connected to at the box.
The most common mistakes connecting these cables are:
1) Crossing the Green and the Blue cables.
2) Connecting the Red Audio cable to the Red Video connection.

If all of the connections match the correct colors find the same cable where it plugs into the back of the TV and check these connections that they are correct.

When you find and move the cable to the correct connection this should clear up your color and you can begin to enjoy your new toys....

Good Luck....

Red, green and blue colours diveded on my TV


ok well "tube" tellys as they are called use an electro magnet to keep the picture stable and colours correct its called gaussing now if you have a speaker or something magnetic nearby it will stuff up the colors but only normally producing colors like purple,green, or white
if you have colors across the screen (that aren't caused by magnetic force) then you need to take it to a repairer or decide wether or not to buy a new one this issue can turn out to be quite hard to fix and can be expensive the different colored electron guns may be burning or burnt out causing pale color or it could be as simple as a power transistor in the H.V supply has shorted out..and causing power issues to the tube.
hope this helps,ben

What are the specs of this tv?


If the TV has the corresponding red, yellow, and white plugs, simply match them up and you're good to go. If it happens to just have white and yellow, plug those two up and it will work fine (sound will be mono instead of stereo). If there aren't any of these plugs, you can pick up an A/V switch. This is a box that has multiple sets of red, yellow, and white plugs to connect multiple devices to a TV but it also will allow you to connect these devices to a TV that only has the round coax connection (like what comes from your cable company) just follow the directions included with the switch and you'll be fine. You can pick up one most anywhere that sells electronics.
