There are three ways you can connect a DVD player to a TV. Component video gives the best picture quality, but requires 3 cables for the video signal alone. S-video needs only 1 cable but it isn’t as good as component video. Composite video is the easiest connection to make, but gives the lowest picture quality.

    Component Video Connection

    Get a component video cable. This cable has 3 sets of connectors, one each for the red, blue and green color signals.

    Match the connectors to the appropriate video output jacks on the DVD
    player. Component video outputs will normally be labeled Cr/Cb/Cy. The
    Cy output jack is matched to green, Cr to red and Cb to blue.

    Run the cable from DVD player to the TV. Most TV connections are made from the back panel, but this may vary.

    Match the connectors to the appropriate video input jacks on the TV.

    S-Video Connection

    Get an S-video cable. This cable has a single round connector with 4 pins.

    Attach one end of the S-video cable to the S-video output jack on the DVD player.

    Attach the other end to the S-video input jack on the TV.

    Composite Video Connection

    Get a composite video cable. These types of cables are frequently
    bundled with two-channel audio cables. Composite video cables are
    tipped with yellow plugs.

    Plug one end of the composite video cable into the composite video output jack on your DVD player.

    Plug the other end into the composite video input jack on your TV.

Is it analog or digital?

If it is a standard CRT TV unit it will be analogue only. If you want it to display a picture from a digital signal you will need to buy and connect a digital set top box to the TV. The set top box then picks up the digital channels through the antenna and displays the picture on the TV set. You will need the basic connections on the back of the TV to be able to connect a set top box and many older TVs do not have them..

I'm not failure with that exact model but it has to do with cable box not the tv. Well it could also be the tv but start at the box first. make sure it's set to not be expanded it should be set to normal picture size and formatted to match the shape of the screen 4:3 or 16:9 and select the highest output like 1080Ip or the lesser 780p the settings will be located in the cable boxes preferences and settings controls. after looking for these settings you will be able to figure out the screen sizes and formats. Then check the tv's menue and make sure it's set to the highest input selection with the screen size setting as normal & not expanded or zoomed.

Rca 42in full hd lcd picture flickers

If the picture on your TV flickers, there may be a simple fix. Here are some possible answers and suggested solutions:

1. Your set-top box may need a simple reboot. Unplug the power connection to the set-top box for about 30 seconds. Reconnect the power and turn the set-top box back on.

2. Check all of your cables for a loose connection by tightening each one with your fingers.Flickers can sometimes be caused by bends in rigid cables, too.

3. If your picture flickers to a black or blue screen, you could have a bad set-top box. Contact your cable or satellite service provider about installing a new one.

4. If you still have audio, the flickering could also mean that you have a failing backlight.

For additional troubleshooting information, check out the chart at TV flickering for more solutions. I hope this helps!

It could be some issue in the box itself; e.g. signal/video processing circuit (some cable/satellite/set-top boxes develop weird faults in this area when they get hot which affect channel reception/signal). Resulting in 'digital interference' affecting pictures on-screen.
You could also try another device on your TV (e.g. a DVD player if you have one handy) and see if any issues occur on-screen. If the set does not exhibit the same behaviour with a DVD player, chances are your cable/satellite/set-top box is the likely suspect. (the above suggestion is simply to determine whether the problem exists in the TV, the box, or both)
If it is proven that the box is indeed the culprit, you may have to consider replacing it with a new one as these are cheaply designed and generally non-serviceable.

My Phillips 32pw8759 TV screen is Permanently blank

There might have been a power surge that had damaged the two units. For the reset, having the tv unplugged overnight should do it. If it does not work you may want to check the power supply of the tv for leaking capacitors or burned resistors or loose solders.

Unable to view digitial tv pictures but audio and analogue pictures work

If you have cable and a top of set box , it may be the problem. If you hook the cable direct to the set and still no digital ... then the TV could have a defective digital board. The tuner is on this board and the tuner gets both analog and digital signals.
