Hello

You have several options for connecting your DVD player to your GV42L FHDTV10A - HDMI,

Component, S-Video and Composite (AV) inputs. Based on your home theater configuration, you can
decide which option is the right one for you.
connected to the HDMI input of the VIZIO GV42L FHDTV10A for optimal results.

To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable available up to 10 meters or less.

1. Turn off the power to the LCD HDTV and DVD player.

2. Connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI output of your DVD player and the other end to the HDMI

Input (white color area) at the rear of the LCD HDTV.

3. Turn on the power to the LCD HDTV and your DVD player.

4. Select HDMI using the INPUT button on the remote or side of the LCD HDTV, or directly by
pressing the HDMI button on the Remote Control.

a) If you are already using the HDMI 1 input for another component, or you do not want to use

the HDMI 1 input for the DVD player, you can connect the DVD player to the HDMI 2

connection.

b) Refer to your DVD player user manual for more information about the video output
requirements of the product.
OK

How do I connect my philips dvd750vr dvd player to my tv? (tv is a toshiba cx32f60). thanks


Hello,

it all depends on the cord that you want to use. There are different cords that can be used to connect Tv to your player.

But I would recommend RCA cord. RCA cord is a Yellow, white and red wires. The yellow stands for video, while the white and red stands for audio left and right.

Look at the back of your TV, connect the yellow part of the cord to Video IN, the connect the red and white to Audio IN respectively.

Now, connect the other end of the wires to the player in the format; Connect the yellow to video Out, the connect the red and white to audio Out, respectively.

Turn on your TV and Player. Press source or AV on the TV remote and a display of the DVD will appear on the screewn of your TV.
That would be all.

If you still have difficulty in connecting, please let me know so that I can help further.

Yours sincerely.

How can I connect my vhs player to my insignia tv? It already has a built in DVD player? I've tried the tri color cords but they don't work.


I would need to know the model number of your TV to be sure. But the RCA plugs should work (tri-colored cords... Red, White, Yellow typically) But if it's a combo TV/DVD player... you probably need to change the input to AUX1 or whatever the tri-colored RCA jacks are plugged into... and not on DVD setting. Try that. and advise back!

Hook up to view dvd's to tv video cables with yellow white and red plug ins.


Hello, here is a sample for auxilary connection for the chdvd300: . Use the AV (Audio/Video) cable
provided to connect the DVD player to
your TV as shown in the diagram.
. Your TV must be equipped with AV
inputs like those pictured to the right in
order to connect this unit.
. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you
will need a RF Modulator to connect this
player to your TV's antenna/cable input.
RF Modulators are available at major
electronics retailers.

This procedure differs among TVs, but is normally done by
pressing the VIDEO IN or INPUT button on the TV's remote
control to select the Video Input.

Need to connect dvd player have yellow, red and white connectors


Red is right channel, White is Left Channel, and Yellow is video.  If you just got the TV and DVD player its a pretty simple setup.  Just look on the back of the DVD player and hook the yellow cord to video and hook the other end to video on your TV.  Now just plug in the red and white cords to the audio on the back of the DVD player and connect the other ends to audio on the back of the TV.  You can bypass these connections and just get a HDMI cable which has video and sound all in one convenient cord, but they cost more.  You just connect the cord on the back of the DVD player where it says HDMI and then plug the other end to the TV where it says HDMI.
