Hookup Issues This TV only has two plugs for connections. One for Audio. One for Video. I have a cable with 3 plugs: one white, one red, one yellow. I can only assume I need a different cable or a converter box of some kind so that I can hook up my TV to a DVD/VHS player with modern connectors. Any idea what type of cable or converter I need?

    Thanks for responding. I don't have cable of any kind, just local channels, does your suggestion still play?

You have an older monaural set. Most sets are stereo. The red and white cables are for left and right. There really is no "converter" other than to get an RF converter to run your DVD through channel 3 or 4.

    Yep. You need to convert to either channel 3 or 4 and select that channel on your TV.

Trying to hookup a dvd player model #DX-DVD2


You need 3 RCA plugs... generally colored red, white, and yellow. on the back of the DVD player plug the yellow to video out, the red to audio out (stereo), and the white to audio out (mono). The other side of them goes to the back of the TV... the yellow video input 1, the red audio (R) input 1, the white Audio (L) input 1. Then take the cable service round coax cable and screw it into the back of the DVD unit where it says Coax. Get another short coax cable and hook to back of the DVD unit on Cable out, and the other side to the back of the TV under cable/vhs. And that"s it! Hope that helps you!

How to connect dvd red white cables


several types of connections possible:

A unit with yellow, red and white is yellow is video, red and white are left and right audio.

This is called COMPOSITE as all video/color are on yellow and red and white only for sound or audio.

If the DVD has RED,GREEN, and BLUE the hookup must be to similar connections on the set---this is called COMPONENT and green carries the video and red and blue the information for those colors.

Let me know if issues or questions as I am here to help you

How do you hook up the 3-plug dvd player to the 2 plug (on the front only) Orion TV?


you just don't put the red cable into anything. Match yellow with yellow and white with white.


Now if the real problem is that the dvd player has a component hookup, which is comprised of green, blue, and red picture cables and a set of white and red audio cables then you cannot connect it to this television.

I need to know where to plug in my connectors for my cable box. I have two red ones and one blue one I can't find the right holes to plug them in. I have a green one and white one fixed so I have a black...


Hi,
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.
Find out red-green-blue jacks at back of TV that would be label as Y, Yr, Yb
Plug each pin in same color to get color picture.

Have an RCA F27636BC TV. Can u hook a DVD player


How to hookup TV

If you have a TV with only a single coax input and you want to hook up components like DVD players and VCRs, here's how to do it.



What you need to connect your DVD player or game players to a TV that only has a VHF/UHF 75-ohm F-connector ("coax antenna input").

1.) RF Modulator with Stereo Audio Inputs.



2.) 6 foot long coaxial cable with male "F" connectors. This cable goes from the modulator to the TV. The modulator also has a coaxial input to plug in your antenna or your VCR.



3.) 6 foot long Video and Audio Cables with "RCA" plugs. The cables connect the yellow, red and white outputs from your DVD or game player to the yellow, red and white inputs of the modulator.





Works with X-Box, PlayStation, Nintendo or other devices that output audio/video via the RCA plugs and you want to connect them to your coaxial only TV.

VHS to Easy capture to computer


The plugs you speak of are called RCA plugs, (Male side has an outside ring with "slots" around the edge, and a pin in the center. Female side has a short round "riser" with a hole in it). You need just standard Audio/Video hookup cables, available at any electronics store.. Walmart/Target/Kmart has them in the TV section. They get plugged into the Audio (Red & White) OUT of the VCR, into the Audio IN (Red & White) of the Easy Capture. The Yellow lead is for Video In/Out between the VCR and Easy Capture. The black is probably the S-Video connector, (round, has very small square hole, surronded by 4, 5, or 7 tiny pin holes) that can be also used to connect video/audio between VCR(if so equipped) and Easy Capture. Get a set of audio/video dubbing cables (abt $10 usually), connect Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow. Plug the Easy Capture USB cable into your computer (most likely), start the capture program. Start your vcr, hit Play. You should see your vcr tape playing on the computer screen.

I have a new element hdtv and a magnavox dvd/vcr. i can't seem to hook the two together. please help


Greetings, Simple hookup would be connecting analog output from DVD/VCR player to your TV. To do this, use the Audio-Video cable which has 3 terminals at both the ends and each terminal has RED,YELLOW and WHITE pin. Your DVD/VCR player would have analog output socket where you would connect one end of these 3 pins, make sure yellow would go in "VIDEO Out, WHITE would go in "LEFT Audio Out" and RED would go in "RIGHT Audio Out", you can easily identify them cause these sockes would also have the colors on them. Now connect other end of the cables to TV, this would be input to your tv. On the back left hand side of the TV, you would see 3 sockes with YELOW, WHITE and RED colors. These are located between "Coaxial" and "S Video" labels. Connect yellow pin to yellow socket which is "Video In", connect RED pin to RED socket and White to white. Switch on the TV, play any dvd on your player. On your TV remote, press INPUT button which is located on the right hand side top corner on remote, press it and if you get the dvd player video and audio, you should repeat the button press to see the video, this button selectes one by one signals given to TV, so your dvd player input might be on the 2nd,3rd or 4th press, so go through till you get the video signals. Hope this helps !!! --Sandy.

Wii has no color


Are you connecting you Wii to a progressive scan TV input (2 for audio (red)(white), 3 for video (yellow)(blue)(red)?

It's possible you have the red audio and red video inputs switched.

If you have the regular AV-Cable (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow)), and your TV has 5 inputs (progressive), look for the 3 inputs (2 for audio (red)(white), 1 for video (yellow). If it doesn't, connect it to a VCR and run the Wii through the VCR input.

Can't get my dvd/vcr to tape and play back


Color codes for A/V cables:

Yellow: Composite Video
Red: Right Audio Channel
White: Left Audio Channel (mono)

Does your TV have a video & audio OUTPUT on the back of the TV?

If so, will need another set of audio/video cables and you need to connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the TV to the video INPUT (yellow) of the DVD/VCR and connect the Red cable from the right OUTPUT of the TV to the red INPUT of the DVD/VCR. Then connect the white cable from the left OUTPUT of the TV to the white INPUT of the DVD/VCR. If your TV is not in stereo, just connect up the white cable for mono audio.

If your TV set does NOT have audio/video OUTPUTS, then you will still need another set of audio/video cables and connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the cable box to the yellow video INPUT of the DVD/VCR and connect either the red or white (or both if possible) to the red or white audio INPUTS of the DVD/VCR.

You need two sets of cables because you want to watch DVD's & tapes on your TV (Path #1) and you want to record the TV channel shows back to your DVD/VCR (Path #2).

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!
