Question about Digital Lifestyle FA1B32Z 32 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

I cannot have the Wii plugged in and the DVD player at the same time

If one is plugged in, the other has no sound. Help! I have to go behind the TV and unplug the inputs to audio and switch to the Wii, or to the DVD. What am I doing wrong? I thought the S Video cord would input sound and picture from the DVD...apparently not. Advice??

S-video only sends video, not audio. You need 2 input channels on the TV in order to have them both work without switching them. Otherwise you will have to switch them over each time.

Trying to hook up a dvd and wii with direct tv and can"t get sound out of wii! HELP Can you show me where to plug cords in?


Your TV has two sets of AV inputs. One on the side and one at the back. The Wii has a 3RCA cable ( Yellow / Red & White ) . Connect these jacks to the corresponding color sockets on the side input of your TV. Select that input on the TV and your Wii sound and picture should come on.
For the DVD player you have to get a 5 RCA component cable. This cable will have 5 colored jacks, connect the White & Red to the Audio in of the TV and then connect the Red/Blue/Green jacks to the component video input of the TV.Do the same at the DVD's end also. Setect that source on the TV and you should hear the DVD sound and picture.bobhifi_31.jpg

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,

While watching tv, we lost sound. We thought it was the tv but when we use the wii or netflix through the wii, we have sound. We are using a Zenith tv digital converter as well as have things routed...


Reboot the digital converter box by unplug,replug it back like 10-20 mins later.If u still getting the same problems no sound,tries by checking out the RCA cable connections,tries take out the red wire and check for damages and plug it back in or tries changes another RCA cable set all to gether.After new set of RCA cable should be working 100,if not the digital converter box is the problems,than now must change the digital converter box,this box no longer on sale by those big box stores.If u require to change the digital converter box tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to buy those converter boxes.

HOW TO PLAY MY DVDS, AND CONNECT A WII AND PLAYSTATION 2


If you have the Insignia NS-42L550A11 (inputs shown here - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=cat13506&type=page&h=387&skuId=9595066&productId=1218131141674&navigation=prev&count=3&chk=true - or something like it), you might have a hard time plugging all of your devices into the TV.

Your DVD player might have a Component Out - if so, plug it (all 5 plugs) into the "Component" section of the TV. If you don't have a Component video cable, you can simply use a couple of Red, White, and Yellow cables instead - just be sure you connect the proper ends so the colors from the DVD match the colors to the TV.

As for your Wii and Playstation - I believe they both have the simple Red, White, and Yellow output plugs (labeled "AV IN" on the back of your Insignia). Because your TV only has 1 input for "AV IN," you might need to purchase a switch of some kind that you can plug your Wii and Playstation into and the switch will have 1 set of Red, White, and Yellow plugs to hook into the TV. The other option is to simply plug and unplug your Wii or Playstation directly to/from the TV depending on what you're playing... not an ideal scenario (particularly if you don't have easy access to the back of your TV.

The following link is for a 2-way switch that would do what you're looking to do. You could even get a 3-way switch and plug all 3 devices into it if your DVD player doesn't have a Component Out.

When trying to play dvd player or the Wii, sound from another channel comes across very loud.


Make sure that that audio plugs (red and white) are on the same input as the video for that device (i.e. wii or dvd player) In other words the yellow red and white plugs must all be plugged in under the same input. Where it says "Input 1" or "Component 1" on the back of your TV, all three (red, yellow, and white) must be in the corresponding holes for that device.
