Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

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.

Dvd hookup


It sounds that you are connected the TV with DVD player Via AV cable. In this case, no RF channels won't go. You have to select its AV option. Check it. Refer the user manual for TV.

How to switch tv to play games


well there should be an option on your remote labled either source or input. that allows you to change from the iputs on your tv. you need to know which input you plugged your wii into. if you select the option and match your tv input to where you plugged your wii into and you still have no pic.make sure your wii is powered on. as well make sure you plugged the cables in correctly. if your using componet cables its red green blue for video and red and white for audio. make sure the audio and video are not crossed that will cause pic distortion. and if your using composite cables makes sure its red yellow and white plugged into red yellow and white. yellow is for video and red and white are your audio. if all this is correct and still no pic. then it's either your wii or your TV.

How do i connect a Blu-ray player to my TV


It should connect best to the one with blue,green,red and then the two for sound--red and white---This is component hookup.

once connected you select the input via the remote or menu..

The ones with the yellow, white and red are composite (yellow is video and color and red/white are audio---doubt it will work off blue ray unless similar outputs on that.

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.

Great video, NO AUDIO


Hello dis2,

Try using the s-video with the audio inputs (Red-White) or the composite video (yellow connector) with the audio inputs (Red-White), if these work then the problem is with your RF connection, this happens at times the modulator that provides the channel 3 signal malfunctions (this is a quality issue).

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Cannot connect zenith vcr to zenith tv thru cable box


Hello mcgillicu390,

From your VCR you should have an (RF OUT) and an (RF IN) Connector (these also might be marked as ANT IN and ANT OUT, or CABLE IN and CABLE OUT).

The same goes for your TV (RF IN), (ANT IN) or (CABLE IN).

Now, take your Coaxial Cable (Cable with screw on or Push on connector with a wire in the center of it) and connect it to the TV (RF IN), take the other end of the same cable and connect it to the VCR (RF OUT).

Then connect your cable TV set top box or antenna to the (RF IN) of the VCR.

If you are using a cable box set your VCR and TV to Channel 3 or 4 (depending on your area)

If you are just using the VCR and an antenna set your TV to channel 3 or (depending on your area).

That should do it for coaxial connectivity.

If you are using the composite video and Audio cables to connect to your TV here are the directions for that.


Looking at the back of your TV you will see Three RCA type connectors colored as Yellow, White, and Red. Yellow is Video, White is your Left Audio, and Red is your Right Audio. They should be marked as (Video IN), (R Audio IN), and (L Audio IN). *note these markings may not be exactly like what is written, however the indicators should be close to what you are seeing.

Now look at your VCR, you may see a lot of RCA Connectors (up to 6 of these connectors) don't worry, you are only looking for the ones that say (Video OUT) (R Audio OUT), and (L Audio OUT).

Once you find the connectors on both pieces of equipment, take the Yellow, Red, and White tipped cables and plug the in their respective jacks Yellow tipped cable connects VCR (Video OUT) to TV(Video IN). Red tipped cable connects VCR (R Audio OUT) to TV (R Audio IN), and finally White tipped cable connects VCR (L Audio OUT) to TV (L Audio IN),

Once the cables are connected you will be able to use the composite selection on your remote to view the images from your VCR, the VCR in this case will be acting as the tuner for your TV with out you having to set the TV to channel 3 or 4, you will just have to use the AUX or whatever setting on you remote that allows the composite video to display.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

How do i plug a game conlone to a direct tv box?


skate,

are you reffering to a game console connecting direct to a TV screen?

1st try to check if your TV screen have a terminal jack indicating "A/V INPUT" A/V stands for Audio/video. if the screen doesn't have this, you'll be needing A/V to RF converter

2nd if your screen does have a terminal jack indicating A/V INPUT the next step you need to do is: check your game consul cable it should have a 3 RCA cable having RED/WHITE and yellow marking.

RED and WHITE cable marking stands for "AUDIO"
YELLOW cable marking stannds for "VIDEO"

connect this cable to A/V input of your screen following the color code ( yellow to yello/ red to red/ white to white) then from the screen press a button indicating "A/V" or "INPUT"

cheers,
mark

I HAVE A RCA TELEVISION, MODEL F20632. I CANNOT FIND THE MANUAL TO HELP ME SET UP MY VCR. I HAVE A 4-PLUG VIDEO CABLE (YELLOW, BLACK, GREEN AND RED). CAN YOU TELL ME WHICH CONNECTIONS ON THE TV I NEED TO...


the yellow rca input jack( not the output one ) is for video in (by itself ) and the red and white rca jack inputs are for the right and left audio that is also required when using the yellow video jack
the red and white audio jacks are also required when using the component video inputs ( BLUE , GREEN & RED ) rca jacks
but only one type of connection is required ( yellow video jack , red and white audio jacks ) or ( the blue , green and red component video jacks and the red and white audio jacks )

you will need the yellow video input and the red and white audio inputs
