Component video needs Red, Green, Blue to be connected on the DVD end and to the TV for video to display, also the Red and White audio out needs to be connected to the TV for audio to work .
VHS has Red, White an yellow for Right Audio, Left Audio and video respectively.
You need to switch the inputs on the TV to the corresponding Component and Video inputs. Most TV's have a source or Input button to switch between the inputs. simply press the button until you have the input you are looking for.

    The VHS cables can't work on Component inputs. It should be connected to a Video or AV input depending on the model of the TV. Component video is only for DVD' and HD sources. you need three separate cables for component video AND two for audio as well.. the output on the DVD will be Red, Blue and Green, you can use any colored cables to connect it to the TV's Red, Blue Green but it has to be consistent. If you use the Yellow to connect the DVD's green output be sure to connect it to the green input on component 1 on the TV, The same goes for the Red and Blue connections. Also, be sure to hook up the audio for the DVD. The DVD/VCR combo units have separate audio outputs that parallel the video outs.

How to tune up dvd player


  • Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of RCA audio and video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. The colors of these cables are yellow (video), white (left audio) and red (right audio).

Take the other end of the RCA audio and video cables and connect them to the color-corresponding inputs on your television. When plugging in these cables, look for a label for the input, such as "Video 1" and "Audio 1." This will be important in Step 5.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the video input channel that you noted in Step 3. If you did not take note, you can also tune through your television's input channels until you find the one displaying the signal from the DVD/VCR player.

Insert a VHS tape or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

Component Video

Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of component video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. These cables will look similar to composite audio and video cables, but they are instead color-coded as red, blue and green.

Plug the other end of the component video cables into the color-corresponding inputs on your television. Take note of what input number you are plugging the cords into, as it will be useful later.

Connect a set of RCA audio cables to "Audio Out" jacks on your VHS/DVD player, then connect the other ends to your television. These cables are color-coded as red and white and must be plugged into the same input number as the component video cables.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the component video input channel where you connected the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Insert a VHS or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

The VHS tapes will not playback on the Samsung TV (flat screen)..the Samsung TV is a Syncmaster 2333 HD...the Samsung dvd/vhs unit is a DVD-V9800 The DVD discs will play just fine. How should I be...


On these combo units, the VCR will not play using component cables but the dvd's will play just fine.

What you need to do is run a pair of composite (Yellow, red and white) cables and use that for VCR and component (Green, blue, red, white and red) for the dvd player.

Make sure you switch the tv to the corresponding input.

Hook up of dvd to tv


hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

simplify- blue green red= component
red white yellow=composite

*wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

Need instruction to hook up dvd player


You will need a TV or monitor with audio/visual inputs. The better ones have what is known as an S/VHS input, which separates the TV picture signal for better color reproduction. You will need to be able to switch your TV, usually by the channel selector, to the proper input for audio visual signals. Sometimes this is known as Video 1, Video 2, A/V etc. These are usually below Channel 2. Maybe your remote has that option. You will need an a/v cable. This is a three-connector cable with RCA plugs on each end. Connect the DVD player to the TV as follows: 1. Yellow cable, from video OUT on the DVD player, to video IN on the TV. Video is ALWAYS yellow. 2. Red and white cables from audio OUT on the DVD player to audio IN on the TV. 3. If you have S/VHS capability, buy an S/VHS patch cable which will have the three plugs mentioned, plus a round 4-pin plug. Select S/VHS OUT on the DVD player, and S/VHS IN on the TV. When using S/VHS, ignore the yellow connector. It is for composite video and not needed. Here's a hint: Your YV audio/visual inputs will usually be on the back of the set. Some better units have a/v inputs in front. What if my TV doesn't have a/v inputs? If your DVD player as an RF output, connect an RF "f" cable from that output to the antenna in cable on your TV. Otherwise buy an RF converter (about $20 or so at Radio Shack). Connect your a/v cable (yellow, red and white) from the DVD player to toe converter, then connect an RF cable (like the kind your cable box is connected with) to the antenna input on your TV. This signal usually comes in on Channel 3. Let me know if your problem is more complicated, It seems like a lot of wires and connections, but it is really straightforward, Remember, yellow is ALWAYS video. The two audio cables can be connected without worrying about color.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.
