Look on the back of the tv, the sockets that various leads are plugged into will have names next to them e.g. SCART-1 or AV - IN or RF IN. Make a note of which socket is used by your DVD player, VHS etc. with the TV on, switch on the device you want to use, let's say you want to watch a DVD. Some DVD players send a signal to the TV and the TV will automatically switch to the correct channel. If not you will have to select the channel manually. On the remote for the TV, look for a button marked "AV", "AV IN", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" press this button and you will either see a list of possible inputs, in which case, choose the correct one for your DVD player - e.g. SCART-1. If you don't see a list, the screen should flicker, go black, blue or straight to the DVD player. Keep pressing the button until you get to the desired input channel. To go back to normal tv, press TV on the remote or you may need to press the input button a few more times - depending on your tv.

Why can't I get reception on my TruTech tv model DW19TT even after plugging in a Phillips digital indoor tv antenna


If the antenna is working and you are not receiving a signal, then you could have a bad tuner, use a tuner from a VCR , connect the ant to the VCR and go from the VCR with Video cables and go to the Video input on the TV and put your TV in Video mode. That will work.

I have an older Phillips VCR which I am tryuing to get tape playback through to my older sanyo small tv. Can you tell me how to please,


Either you can use the composite signals which is to connect the video out / audio OUT from your VCR to the video /audio IN of the TV and choose the input select to be LINE IN or VIDEO IN.
If there is no input then you can connect the RF OUT from the VCR and play a tape or use the test signal found on many sets on the RF panel. Now tune the TV, manual is better or the entire presetted TV channels will be erased off. Once the signal is found it will be memorised.
Hope you get this right.

On most of the older sets the video input is found by channeling down below channel 2 where you will find the video input source.

Phillips dvdplayervideorecorder connect w/zinwell converter box


First off get the TV on the right channel. It will either be ch3 or ch4. If you are using a cable box the dvd/vcr combo will have to be on ch3 or ch4 as well. OK, Make sure the input connector on the combo is hooked to the output connector of the cable box and the output connector of the combo is hooked to the input connector of the tv. Deal with one part at a time. First hook the combo to the tv and get the tv on the right channel (ch3 or ch4) so that you can see a pre-recorded dvd or video play. Then you will know what channel the tv is supposed to be on. When you find it don't bother the tv channel any more. Stop the dvd or video and hook up the cable box and turn on the cable box and set the box to a known good channel. Now put the combo on ch3 or ch4 with the combo's channel selector buttons until you see the cable box playing on the tv (remember you already set up the tv channel). Change channels on the box but don't bother the channels on the tv or combo anymore. You can put the box on whatever channel you want. The box will be your channel selector. I certainly hope that this helps. I know it can be confusing but don't give up. Just remember that the tv and combo have to always be on ch3 or ch4 (which ever one you found before). Good luck and thanks.

Phillips 19 inch TV/VCR combo --no remote--can't change channels


Hi,
I cannot be sure of the exact model but... Press and hold the TV's volume up and volume down buttons simultaneously. On many older televisions, this opens the device menu without the use of a remote. Otherwise, use the menu button, which you can navigate in a similar fashion.
Also, somewhere should be an input button. Press it multiple times times to switch between various inputs (the input must match whatever input you are using). Usually after these menus are opened you can use vol up vol down to change things.

Gateway laptop to phillips tv


Hi, there, pleasy clarify the following:
What is your Gateway model? Is your TV an older tube type or a new HDTV? Does it have other input ports besides the standard cable input and the RCA you mentioned? You may be able to use S-Video if your laptop has the output port and so does your old TV. Or if you have a newer laptop that includes DVI and you have an HDTV, then you can use a DVI to HDMI cable which by the way will result in the best image quality.

Dvd hookup to phillips tv without inputs


Have yourself a VCR that has a Scart input, or Video in, and feed the DVD in there. Connect your TV to the VCR, and tune it in to the video channel, using aerial lead and tuner.

When you flick VCR to AV1 (or similar) you should see the DVD appear on the TV Video Channel :)

No tv remote


Go to Radio Shack and get an universal remote control, mine is a Phillips Universal and just program it to your tv. It has a tv/vcr input to let you switch to the right "input"/channel.
