    I have the AV cable that came with the yobo and when I plug yellow to yellow and white to white on the back of my television and on the console, nothing happens. The power is on and it seems like it should be simple enough. I also have a cable box with red, yellow and white plugs and I'm wondering if those should be involved somehow. Help! What can't I make this work?

I ended up using the component in cable hookup and fiber optic digital audio instead of HDMI - works fine.

SOURCE: Can't get system to come back on to tv screen

how was it connected at this other residence? was it via HDMI cable by any chance? if so try this, with the PS3 in stand by mode Press and hold the power button for 5 secs.. (until you hear the second beep) this causes the PS3 to reset the display properties back to 480i..follow the onscreen instructions to set it back up to 1080i

O.k i hook the dvd vcr to the tv andtv still says no signal

hook via the audio and video INPUT jacks from the out jacks on the dvd/vcr

How to conect my vcr to the tv

Depending on the VCR use an S-video cable with the RCA audio cables or the three RCA (Red and white audio and the yellow video) AV option. Attach them from the output of the VCR to the inputs of the television. The audio in jacks are the ones on the bottom; the upper ones are audio out for external speakers.

Also connect the antenna out (RF) from the VCR to the TV if the VCR has a tuner. (Incoming signal goes to the VCR if you are using this option).

I hope this helps.

Dear Technician, I have 4 components that I am trying to connect together, a Panasonic HDTV model #TC-L32X1, a GO Video DVD/VCR model #DV2130, a Yamaha stereo receiver model#RX-690, and a Scientific...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Unfortunately, size limitation of what could be attached prevents posting a connection diagram. Still, proposed connection scheme:
  • 4250HDC's HDMI to Panasonic's HDMI 1 or 2;
  • 4250HDC's VIDEO OUT to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 VIDEO;
  • 4250HDC's AUDIO OUT to 2 pcs of RCA Splitters (shown below);
  • 1 pair from the 2 splitters to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 R-AUDIO-L;
  • the other pair to Yamaha's LD/TV L & R;
  • GoVideo's LINE OUT VIDEO to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 VIDEO;
  • GoVideo's LINE OUT R-AUDIO-L to 2 more RCA Splitters;
  • 1 pair from the 2 splitters to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 L-AUDIO-R;
  • the other pair to Yamaha's VCR 1 IN L & R;
  • to watch cable TV in HD quality, set Panasonic to HDMI 1 or 2 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 3 (or 4), then OK;
  • to hear cable TV programs on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to LD/TV;
  • to watch DVD or VHS, set Panasonic to Video 1 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 6, then OK;
  • to hear DVD or VHS on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to VCR 1;
  • to record cable TV programs, press GoVideo remote's TV VIEW button a couple of times to cycle through the signal sources or until Line 1 is displayed.

The use of the splitter shown below would effectively double the AUDIO OUT of the cable box and the DVD/VCR combo to feed both the TV and the stereo. Additionally, this would allow use of the cable box and/or the DVD/VCR combo with or without the Yamaha.

How to hook up vcr and dvd together ?

|DVD| -> |VCR| -> |TV|

1. Connect your VCR to your TV. (Using Antena cable or RCA cables.)

2. From your DVD player, choose the AUDIO VIDEO OUT. Then, connect that to your VCR's LINE IN jacks.

(*)Your DVD player has 3 jacks coming out. Yellow-video, White- Audio Left and Red- Audio Right.
If you VCR does not have the RED jack. Go to a radio shack and tell on of the sales person taht you need to connect 2 RCA audio outs to 1 RCA audio in. (He/ She will give you a "2RCA Male to 1RCA Female" splitter)

3. Finally, play your DVD, put your VCR channel in TV and most important select the LINE channel in your VCR. (This channal may called as L1, Line,... etc)

You should be seeing the DVD in your TV now.

If you want to play the VCR, just put the casset and play.

Important- The VCR needs to be powered on in order to the DVD signals to go to the TV.
