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.

How do I connect my TV to a cable DVR box?

The simplest way is if your cable box has HDMI (wide flat connector tapered at the ends) then connect one end to the cable box and the other end to the TV input and you are done. If your TV or Cable Box does not have HDMI connecor, then you can connect it through COMPONENT VIDEO + AUDIO. Component video is the red-blue-green connectors. That is video only. Then you need to connect red and white audio connectors from the box to the TV as well. Total of 5 connections. When you are done, make sure you have your TV selected to the input corresponding to the input you are using since most TVs have multiple inputs in the back and side of the TV. G

I hooked up my cable box up to my sceptre tv and it had sounds but the picture is black and white I even went and bought the blue and green cords but still only black and white

With the blue/green/red cords (Component) you need to get a very good bright light on the connectors so you get the plugged into the correct COMPONENT connectors on the TV. Note, there are white and red AUDIO plugs right near the COMPONENT input so you need to be VERY careful. If you get it wrong, the colors on screen are often off and even black&white.

How is your cable box connected to the TV? Screw on "COAXIAL", Yellow, Red, White "RCA", single flat connector "HDMI" or 5 colored plugs 2 X Red, 1 X White, 1 X Blue, 1 X Green "COMPONENT"

Allow it to run through the boot sequence. When you see the time appear on the front of the cable box, you may turn on the television and check your signal.

    Red, Green and Blue cables together typically denotes a component video signal - an Analog, High Definition transportation for video. This cable does not carry audio, you need another cable to hook up audio between the DVR and receiver. You can use either an RCA stereo cable (red and white), optical-audio, HDMI, or a whole plethora of other audio cables. I would recommend optical or HDMI to get the most out of your system.

    Connect dvd recorder to cable box and hdtv

    I have posted a tip that should help you out with your problem follow the link below but there is one minor variation for connecting to your TV.

    On step 3 of the connections section substitute the follow for your situation.

    You will need 1 component cable (Red/Blue/Green/Red/White cable)

    3) Connect the Green/Blue/Red connectors to the back of the DVR labeled "COMPONENT OUT" matching the colors. Connect the same ends to the input of the back of the TV again matching the colors.

    4) Connect the last two connectors (Red/White) to the back of the DVR to the AUDIO IN on the TV.

    Other than this variation all shoud be the same.

    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....

    This would be 5 pins, red-white is for audio and rest of 3 pins red-green-blue for video signal, it calls component video.

    From cable box component out to tv component picture is on no aud

    You need to also connect the RCA audio out (red/white) from your source to the audio input on the TV. You do not need the yellow wire as that is for composite video. The component cable (red/green/blue) is only for video. Look at the input on the TV where you connected the red/green/blue cable. Right next to it, you should have another red and white connectors for the audio input. Connect that to the audio out on the cable box.
