Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-20S3000 20 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

How do I re-connect a VCR/DVD player to a Bravia? I have (!) video output and (1) audio output wire from the VCR unit and have tried a number of combinations without success connecting to the back of the TV. I have the set input on Audio. I have had both the VCR and TV on channels 3 and 4. The best success so far is to have a clear TV picture and sound and a faint green and red VCR image moving diagonally in the background from the 11o'clock to the 4 o'clock position. This system worked a month ago using the Magnavox VCR/DVD remote to control tapes and DVD's. Someone in the house, that was cleaning, moved the items causing some of the wiring to disconnect. In numerous attempts to rectify the problem, everything is now a mess. Please, at your earliest, provide me with direction. Thank you! Steve

The DVD/VCR player should have video (Y) plus right (R) and left (?) outputs that connect to corresponding inputs on the rear of the Bravia TV. You should be able to press the TV/VCR button on the remote to select that device as the input source.

Sounds like you have a home theatre system, and you need to run rca cables from audio out of the tv to audio in on the amp, and turn the speakers off in the tv menu and set audio out to fixed or turn tv volume up all the way to get enough audio siginal.

Only sound and No picture in Toshiba DVD/VCR combo


Hello,

maybe your connections are wrong.

The yellow pin is for video, while the white and red pin are for audio left and right.

So, your wires will be connected to video and audio "OUT" from your player and connected to "IN" respectively on your TV.

That's how it gos. Its a input and output law. The Player will be sending out the pictures and sounds (OUT) and the TV will be receiving from the other end (IN).

Its as simple is that. But if there is still no picture, then cross check your video wire (yellow), maybe its bad.

Good luck.

How to hook up a kenwood audio-video surround receiver vr-405 to a 46" Bravia tv?


hello all you need is a good pair of RCA cables.

Use the audio output on the TV
run it to the VIDEO 1 input on the receiver


as for your DVD player vcr etc you can either run them directly to the tv as it will output whatever sound is playing to the receiver.

or

use the receiver as a video switcher and connect your components directly to it.

remember your receiver will need to be set to the input you use. ie: video 1 / dvd etc..

Hope that helps

If exact model is Samsung DVD-VR357, than it doesn't even has to recognise blank disc as your unit is DVD PLAYER with Video Casette Recorder.

See Specs. for your unit below:
Function Combination VCR Y Compatibility Playback Media DVD-R,DVD-RW,DVD+R,DVD+RW,CD-R/RW,CD,VHS, DVD-RAM Playback Formats MP3, WMA, JPEG, MPEG-4, DivX A/V Quality Progressive Scan Y HD Upconversion 720p/1080i Digital-to-Analog Converter 10-Bit/54MHz DTS Output Y Dolby Digital Surround Sound Y Connectivity HDMI CEC Y Convenience Child Protection Parental Control Physical Features Connectivity HDMI Output Y Component Video Output 1(Rear) S-Video Output 1(Rear) Composite Video Output 1(Rear) Coaxial Digital Audio Outputs 1(Rear) Optical Audio Output 1(Rear) Product Weight & Dimensions Dimension 16.9" x 3.1" x 11" Weight 8.8Lbs. Shipment Weight & Dimensions Dimension 20.2" x 7.1" x 15.1" Weight 12.1Lbs.

Closest model match for DVD recording unit would be DVD-VR375

Unfortunately you have player only and you won't be able to recor DVDs with it whatsoever.

Good luck

Cant hook dvd/vcr to my cable box the manual says I need a extern


The cable box IS an external tuner.  You should connect the video output (either S video, HDMI, or component video) of the cable box to the video input of the DVD.  Then connect the audio output of the cable box to the audio input of the DVD via stereo RCA cables.  If your tv monitor has multiple inputs (ie: video 1, 2, and 3...) connect the video and audio output of the DVD to your tv monitor using an alternate video input (if cable box goes into your tv thru video 1, connect the DVD to video 2).  If your cable box only has one output, or your tv has only one input, then just connect your cable box to the DVD as above, and connect the DVD to your tv.

DVD is wired to the VCR and does not work


The Sony Bravia should have a number of component inputs, so you should be able to hook up the DVD directly to the TV. The only reason for hooking it up through the VCR would be to record a DVD on VHS... but that's for the birds--VHS is old technology.

Each component input on the back of the TV has a number. You then select to view the component you want by pressing the remote control button to change the display (it should show with one you're on... e.g., Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.).

Lost manual...I cannot get DVD or VCR to record


You need to decide which set of inputs or outputs you want to use. To record, and watch what you have recorded on your TV, you will need TWO sets of audio/visual patch cords. One for recording and the other for playing. Let's start with the recording. Look for the Line in or video in plugs on your DVD-VCR unit. Some recorders have separate inputs for the VCR and DVD. Others let you select with the remote. Usually Line 1 is at the back and Line 2 is on the front. Your remote will have "recording source" to let you select, or sometimes you can use the channel up and down arrows to select your input source. Your remote will also allow you to select either the DVD or VCR for recording. Connect the Yellow plug to the Video In socket, and the red and white plugs to audio in., Connect the other end of the cord to the TV or cable box. Yellow goes to Video Out, red and white go to audio out. Recording from the cable box is much easier because you wiull always have a signal going into the DVD-VCR recorder no matter what happens at the TV.  Now look for the Video out connection on the DVD-VCR recorder. Connect the Yellow plug to video out and the red and white plugs to audio out. Ignore the other connections at this point. They are for RGB component video. Your DVD -VCR should have one output for both functions. Use that one.
Now connect that cord to a Video one or Video 2 input on your TV.
Test the set-up. Play a DVD or a VHS tape and try to bring it in using the TV remote.
Then turn on a program and try to record it on  the DVD-VCR, then play it back.
This sounds very complicated, but all that's involved are two patch cords with three plugs on each end - 12 connections in all and color-coded. YELLOW is always video.

I want to record a dvd from my tv/dvd/vcr combo to an external vcr. i'm not trying to break any laws, it's only for my babygirls personal enjoyment. please tell me how the wires should be


as long as you're not breaking any laws you can connect the video/audio output of your combo unit to the video/audio input of your vcr using audio/video rca cables where the yellow plug goes to the video input/output and the red plug to the right audio and the white to the left audio input/output.

DUBBING ONTO VHS FROM DVD


if you have two separate units, the best way is to connect s-video cable from the output of the dvd player to the input of the vcr. If not, second best is to connect the video/audio out of the dvd to the video/audio in of the vcr. Othwise the units may have a rf (75 ohm cable) output and the dvd usually sends channel 3 or channel 4 as an output when playing and the vcr must be tuned to this channel. Start the dvd, pause it, hit the vcr record button, then unpause the dvd.
