To connect a VCR/DVD player to a Sansui flat screen TV, you will need to use the appropriate cables and connections. Here are the general steps you can follow:

  1. Check your TV and VCR/DVD player for the available ports. The TV should have RCA composite video and audio inputs, and the VCR/DVD player should have RCA composite video and audio outputs, or HDMI port.
  2. Using the appropriate cables, connect the RCA composite video and audio outputs from the VCR/DVD player to the corresponding RCA composite video and audio inputs on the TV. If your VCR/DVD player has HDMI port, use HDMI cable to connect the TV and the VCR/DVD player.
  3. Turn on your TV and VCR/DVD player.
  4. On your TV, press the "Input" or "Source" button to switch to the input where the RCA composite video and audio cables are connected or HDMI.
  5. Using the remote of your TV, go to the menu and select the input where the VCR/DVD is connected.
  6. If you don't see any picture, try adjusting the settings on your TV and VCR/DVD player.
  7. Once you are able to see the picture on your TV, you should be able to use your VCR/DVD player as you normally would.

    Press and hold the "Setup" button on the remote until the "TV" button blinks twice.
    Enter the code for your device (usually found in the remote's instruction manual or on the manufacturer's website) using the number buttons on the remote.
    Press the "TV" button to save the code.
    Repeat steps 1-3 to program additional devices.
    Test the remote to make sure it controls all the devices properly.
    If the codes provided in the manual or website are not working, it might be possible that the specific remote does not support that model of the device.

How do i hook up a 32 inch Sansui TV to an antenna

After you connect the antenna cable to the TV go into the setup mode and on the tuner line change it from cable to air. Then do an automatic channel search and you're done.

Channel setup

It sounds like the tv isn't finding any channels and that is why it keeps trying to repeat the search. In the cable/antenna input selection in tone setup menu, make sure you have it set up for the correct signal type. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad TV and should take it back to the store before the warranty is up.

How to hook up to hd tv

Use the highest resolution connection your HD TV will allow. This will usually DR570's HDMI connector. Most all digital video devices have one or more. The DR570 has an HDMI OUT. Connect it to any HDMI IN connector on your TV. You will then need to set the TV's Input selection to the Input Number you connected the DR570 to. See your TV Remote or Manual.

The DR570 has three types of output connection options, in order of quality; HDMI, Component(Red/Blu/Grn RCA jacks), S-Video (circular connector), and composite (Red/Wht/Yel, where Yel is video and Red/Wht are left/right stereo audio). Red/Wht RCA Audio jack connections are required to be made on all Output types excepting HDMI.

Note, to get your Digital channels, you will need to toggle the DR570's DTV/TV button. DTV is Digital TV channels. TV is analog channels, the DR570 found on your Cable or Antenna RF input coax, after you have done the Setup/General/Channels/Scan (extended). Scan only finds analog channels. Extended Scan scans for both Analog and Digital channels found active on your Cable/Antenna RF connection.

Note also, the DR570 is not technically and HD receiver. The term High Defintion (HD) is reserved to mean 1080i or p resolution, the highest available. The DR570 is an Extended Definition (ED) 720i or p receiver. It up-converts its ED to fit an a 16:9 HD TV screen. You will hardly notice the difference on your TV, but it is the difference between watching a DVD Movie on a standard DVD player, like this one, as opposed to a full HD player like a Blue Ray.

How do I get to the input screen on and Admiral TV model GRD15272

Using the buttons on the TV, go to the setup menu, and scroll to "editchannels" by pressing "setup" button until "edit channels" ishighlighted. Then, using the channel up/down buttons, go to channel 91and press + volume. This should add the video input2_bing.gif to your channels. 92 is S-video. It is helpful to have what ever device (dvd player or game console) hooked up and powered on, so you know when you are on the right channel, but it should be 91.

Screen is white

this could work unplug everything hooked up to it and leave it for 2 days then hook up the dvd and switch on it should detect it via the scart lead..good luck

Sansui SAN1880 80g dvd recorder no colour

Hi, I have a Sansui Model San1880, after I have manually program the TV channels, I don't get no sound at all only on the TV channels its got good pictures but no sound, would you please tell me what to do.


Sansui 42" Palsma

I assume you are saying that the DVD player only has RCA jacks. It would be good to know if the DVD player has Component output as that is the preferred output. You will know this if the RCA jacks on the DVD are color coded green, blue and red.... You would by a set of component cables, hook to DVD matching colors and then find the same color code on input of the TV. You must also run the red and white cable from the DVD output to the TV input for audio. The input on the TV would be labled component in or input and a #. Simply select the input, or source button on remote to select the input that matches your choice and all should function. If there is no component on the DVD output and only a composit hook up (color code by yellow, red, white) again just match that to the corresponding input on the TV.
