The coax output is just a passthrough. You need to go to the TV through the RCA output even if you have to go through a VCR or other component.

I have just bought a new PD-DVR100 DVD recorder and am trying to use it but when i press setup nothing else shows for me to make any settings.


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in using the DVD Recorder. Based on the information you have provided, please follow the below troubleshooting steps and check the operation:

Please make sure that the connections are secure and proper. (You have not mentioned the type of connection that you're using to connect the Recorder to the TV. You may use Component, S-Video or Composite Video connection to setup the Recorder with the TV).

Please make sure that you have selected proper input on the TV to view the setup screen of the Recorder on the TV screen. (Most of the TVs have an INPUT button or TV/VIDEO button to change the input. If you're not sure with the input selection method, you may refer the manual of the TV or get back to me with the exact model # of the TV so that I can help you with INPUT SELECTION)

Turn off both TV and Recorder and check the operation.

Unplug the Recorder from wall outlet for more than two minutes to perform a Power resetting and check the operation.

Try connecting the Recorder to the TV using a different cable.

If the issue persists, please get back to me with more details about the issue like the type of connection and model # of the TV etc.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarification on the provided steps.


Thanks for understanding.

Connectding audio/video cables when you have a cable box and sound bar with dvd player


How To Connect a DVD Recorder to a Television:
1.If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
2.To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
3.To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
5. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
6. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
7. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
8. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
9. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
10. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

I have an older sharp tv from an older sibling and the cable works, but I'm trying to connect what I believe to be an older dvd player to it. The dvd player has the 3 color cords (red yellow and white)...


Those modes you gave are for what TYPE of signal is comming in to the Cable/Antenna connector.
You need to switch from that input device to the other input device, the RCA plugs. These are often displayed as Aux or perhaps Line etc. It would help if you had the remote from the tv and were able to choose Aux or Line, or if it has TV/Video button. But if not, try channel button on the tv itself and go down below Ch 1. If using the cable remote to control TV, it may have a TV/Video button too. Maybe.
Good luck

I am having trouble connecting my laptop to the tv. I want to use my television as a computer monitor. I have a proper connection cable but I can't seem to figure out how to get my laptop screen onto...


It really depends on your laptops operating software and the TV's frequency capability, If it has a "PC" input, VGA, with Vista and Windows 7 it's almost plug-n-play. With XP or older, it's a little harder. In your laptops control panel you will find "Display" that's where you start. Microsoft help and support on your laptop will walk you thru it.
If your TV does not have a PC input, don't waste your time, the picture quality is poor at best. The frequency is not really compatible. You can purchase an adapter to make it work, however, the Radio Shack version at 150 has a lousy picture, and a good adapter costs as much as some monitors! not economical. Hope this helps.

I have a DVD/VCR recording device and I need to hook up my camcorder to record videos to a DVD to submit to an organization for my son to receive a service dog. I can hook up camcorder straight to TV...


To record to the DVD, connect the A/V cables from the JVC GR-D347U to the A/V In on the DVD recorder. Since the DVD already plays to the TV, you just have to keep the TV set to that input. Put a blank DVD in the recorder. Set the DVD recorder to record on from the appropriate Line In (input) with the DVD as the target recording media. To make sure that all of the devices are on and receiving the output from the camera and DVD recorder, start playback on the GR-D347U and check that it displays on the TV. Forward the tape in the camera to the point where you want to record to the DVD. Stop playback. Press REC for the DVD recorder and restart your playback. Press stop for both the DVD recorder and then the camera when the desired video segment has been played back.

See page 21 of the manual for the GR-D347U. Treat the DVD recorder as a VCR for this situation. The manual is available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/82266/Jvc-Gr-D347u.html?page=21#manual .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the details of the DVD recorder for more information on connecting the unit in this daisy chain.

(Many recorders have at least two composite video Line In inputs. That's why you need select the correct one for recording.)

Does your TV have component inputs?

You can only play games with the component (red,green,blue) cable
the composite (red,yellow,white) is only for music and pictures.

make sure you have the proper connections on your tv and theyre hooked up properly.

How to connect my HTC evo to a hdmi tv?


Follow these steps:
1. Need a HDMI-to-Micro HDMI cable ($4-$8). Do not pay $30 at brand stores.
2. Connect the Micro HDMI to your phone.
3. Make sure that TV is off. Then connect the HDMI end of the cable to any available HDMI port on your TV/Display.
4. Reboot/Restart your EVO. This is a must do step for phone to recognize the HDMI connection. (Neither HTC nor Sprint were aware of this step.). On reboot/restart, you will see a HDMI logo on top left corner of your EVO. This lets you know that EVO is detecting the HDMI cable connection.
5. Turn on your TV. Select the matching Input (Signal Source) for your cable from the phone.

Now is time to what your pictures or MPEG video clips from your phone. Sorry no Netflix, Hulu, UVerse or any other non-MPEG format videos. However, you can play videos shot with EVO or play YouTube Videos.

For watching pictures/photos use "Gallery" app in your list of apps. Select the picture or pictures then from Menu select Slideshow.

We have a tv that has only the cable jack in the back but cant get my dvr to show on the TV...what do I need to do?


If the only connection on the TV is for a coax cable, then you'll need a small box you can get at most any store that has electronic parts. It lets you play DVD and VCR to older TVs like yours.
I'm not sure what they call this, but it sells for about $20 ± a few dollars.

When tv is turned on with cable channels picture is snowy. when dvd or vhs tape played through tv the picture is snowy


Try using the video inputs
What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.
Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!
