We have a new TV, old surround sound, old dvd player & want to get Blu-ray player with component video output to work with our surround sound. Is this possible & Which Blu-ray player?


component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).

Could you tell me the steps to hook up my vcr & my dvd players to my tv. And what cables and or devices I need to accomplish this task?


It will depend on the devices. Most VCRs will have composite and S-video outputs. For this you will need either a composite audio/video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end: yellow (video) and red and white (audio)) or an S-video cable and a separate audio cable. The DVD player will probably have component video or HDMI outputs, depending on its age. The component video requires a 3 plug RCA video cable (red, green, blue) and a 2 plug RCA audio cable (red and white). Some DVD players have composite outputs as well. However, this limits you to an SD video output and isn't recommended, unless your TV doesn't have any HD inputs.

If your TV has one each of the appropriate input ports or 2 composite video ports, you just need those cables, assuming you have no other devices that have filled the inputs. Always connect the devices with the TV and the A/V components off. Match the color of the plug to the port. If you mix up the colors on component video cable, you may get a black&white picture. Some newer TVs use an adapter dongle to convert composite or component video to single port on the input board. Again match the colors at the dongle and then plug in the adapter. If your TV has shared composite and component signals, use the HDMI port output on the DVD player, if possible, or get a Audio/Video switch, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Panlong-Switcher-Composite-Selector-Consoles/dp/B00KXVBB3Q/ref=sr_1_24?s=audio-video-accessories&ie=UTF8&qid=1440632814&sr=1-24 .

Please add a comment with the make and model of your specific TV, VCR and DVD player. I hope this helps.

My dvd player is hooked up to t.v. but only plays movies in black/white


How is the DVD player connected to the TV? If you are using component video, check that the cables are connected correctly.

If you switch the order on two of the cables, the black and white result is common. So double-check that the red, blue and green connections (RPbPy) have been connected to both devices in the same order. Next try a different set of component video cables, in case one of the wires is damaged.

If possible, try a different type of connection to rule out a damaged input/output. Connect the TV to a different DVD player or the DVD player to another TV, if possible, to rule out similar damage.

Please add a comment with the connection type for additional support. I hope this helps.

I don't know which cables to use to hook up my sony plasma to a samsung dvd player, or how to hook it up.


Hi there. To enable your Samsung DVD player to work on your Sony Plasma, you will need two things:

1. The Power cable for the DVD player
2. The Audio(Red and White) and Video(Yellow) cables that should have been provided when the DVD player was bought. If ever these cables are not available, you may buy these at any Hyper Market such as Wal-Mart or a technology store such as Best Buy. These are called Composite Video and Audio Cables.

If you have the previous cables, connect the 3 Audio/Video cables to the back of the Plasma TV, it should contain the appropriate ports. Yellow cable(Video) for the Yellow port. White and Red for the Audio Left(L) and Right(R) ports. Then connect your power, turn the DVD on and switch from TV to other input which should display the Samsung Logo.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

I have a Sanyo DWM-390 DVD player and I can't get the video on my TV. I have the DVD player going directly to my TV versus my cable box. I have the video and audio chord in the corresponding audio and...


3 possible solutions to your problem starting with the easiest:

1. The audio/video cable is bad. It is possible the video side of the cable has a short.
2. Inputs on the back of the TV are mislabeled or aren't matching up with how you are connecting or using the inputs. Feel free to post a picture of the back of the unit with your cords attached and I can tell you for sure.
3. Some dvd players require you to select which video output mode to use. Most of the newer ones come defaulted to hdmi output and might need a menu selection changed to output using component or composite outputs (whichever you are using). Composite will just have the red and white connector for audio and a single yellow connector for video. Component uses the same 2 audio connectors and then red, green, blue conectors for the video.

Let us know more detail and I can help further.

I no longer have the manual for the product and I want to hook it up to my TV via a cable box; we have Charter cable. The cable box is a Motorola and it says Dolby digital on the front of the cable box. ...


The white, yellow, and red RCA phono jacks on the back are called VGA inputs and outputs. The Red is
right channel audio, The white is for left channel audio. The yellow is the video. Look carefully on the back of the unit and the input jacks and output jacks should be clearly marked.

There are several other input/output ports. One is HDMI which is flat and wide. Another, not common, is composite video which uses the three above mentioned RCA jacks as indicated plus two more colored jacks. This combination gives a better picture.

A third option is a screwed on cable for input and output. This is called a "F" connector and is only used if the receiver equipment has a built in tuner. The output of a cable box is usually an "F" connector and the above described outputs

If you connect the cable box to the DVD player input and the DVD player output to the TV input, you often must have the DVD player turned on so the signal will feed to the TV.

If the TV has multiple inputs, it is best to connect the cable box to one of the TV inputs and the DVD player to another TV input. Using the TV remote you can chose which input you want to watch. The remote should have a button labeled "input"

I have a dvd player that I am trying to hook up to a sharp tv model number 25L-M100B. This tv don't have the necessary ports inthe back to plug dvd or anything up to it. It does have 2 in the front of


Hook the dvd player up to the front inputs usually a yellow and a red or possibly a yellow red and white depending if the TV is stereo or not.

Then on your remote, it the INPUT button and take it to "VIDEO 1" while your dvd player is on and you should get a picture.

Make sure not to mix the cable colors.
Yellow is video
White Audio
Red Audio
A lot of times there is only either white or red and not both. This is just Mono sound, it works, just not "stereo" sound.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Hooking up audio video to cable box with home theatre


From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.

That should work.

Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.

Hey motherann,

If your TV has only been having problems displaying a picture when using the DVD player (and normal TV stations are unaffected), you may only need to check the connections between your TV and DVD player to resolve the issue.

Most DVD players will connect to a TV using component video cables, an HDMI cable, a composite video cable, or an S-Video cable. HDMI and S-Video ports generally have a unique enough shape that the cables used to make those connections cannot be used anywhere else, but the same unfortunately does not apply to component and composite cables. Component and composite video cables share a similar shape, and can often be confused if the identifying marks on the cable itself, TV or DVD player have been removed. Composite video cables are traditionally a single connection that transmits the entire video signal from the DVD player to the TV, while component cables are a series of three cables that each transmit a portion of the same image.

The first thing I would suggest checking is that each cable is correctly connected to both the DVD player and your TV. Make sure that the cable(s) connected to your DVD player is plugged into the appropriate "Video Out" port, and attached to the TV at the corresponding "Video In" port. These ports should be labeled on both the TV and DVD player for easy identification, regardless of where the connections are located. Additionally, many manufacturers will even color-code both the connection ports and the cables themselves, to ensure that the right cable is used at any given time.

In the event that everything has been set up correctly but the TV still does not pick up a video signal from the DVD player, there could be a number of other potential problems: the cable being used could be defective, one of the connection ports used (on either the DVD player or TV) could be defective, or they may even be a loose connection inside the TV or DVD player.

Replacing a defective cable is generally the easist possible solution to this type of scenario, but if the problem still persists after doing so, you may wish to consult a repair technician to determine the cause of the problem.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
