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.

Why won't it turn on?


Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

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"

Why is my TV screen PINK?


Have heard of this issue,in most cases while using HDMI cable.Try switching to component cable hookup.(Red/Blue/Green RCA type plugs).This will still give you Hi-Def.(don't forget to get a Red/White cord set for the audio also,unless you get a 5-way cord that does both).

How do i connect an x box 360 to a HD ready tv please explain simply


Every xbox comes with the HD av cords. However they are not only the standard red, white, and yellow. But they also come with green, blue, and red av cords. These are the HD cords.Your HD tv should have green, blue, and red outlets on the back of the tv. It also has a another red and white outlet under it. So you have to take the HD cords and plug them into the appropriate outlets and then take the red and white cords from the other set of avs and plug them in right under those cords so you will have sound when you turn your xbox on. On my tv the red and white outlet is right under the HD outlet. But your tv may be different. And make sure that the "box" on the cord that reads either TV or HDTV is flicked toward HDTV.

I need to plug in a Xbox 360 into a samsung flat screen t.v using the : red yellow and white . And the green red and blue . . how should i go about this .... because im not sure wherre the cords go exactly...


You will use the red and white connections for your right and left audio, those go into an"INPUT" on the TV, then you will either use yellow, or red-blue-green for your video, not both, either yellow, or red-blue-green.
Make sure you connect all cords audio and video into the same row or group of jacks on the back or side of your TV.
Good Luck !

I tried to hook up my dvd player and i get picture but no sound. when i put the cords in the back of the monitor there is yellow red blue green holes no white spot. Do i need different cords. I have tried...


That could be a result to that TV either not having the ports you need, or you may need different cords. On my TV. With the 360 they have two cords. Red,white, and yellow and also green blue and i think red but im not 100% sure. You may need to find a different port on your TV for your cords, or do what I do and have your VCR hooked up to your tv, and your DvD player hooked up thorugh your VCR. Hope this helps and don't forget to rate ^^
(and yes that yellow and white are a necessity)

How to connect satellite radio?


No you don`t need HDMI cableing, and do not use the blue, green, red, this is for video 1080i, if your Samsung doesn`t support more than one audio input ( the red and white RCA female plug audio inputs) get a multi tap or a piggy back plug, this will allow you to have 4 inputs into 2 inputs, think of it like an extention cord, one plug into an outlet yielding 3 inlets.
