TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
I have a new tv with only 1 scart in/out plus a set of 5 phono sockets called AV2 in. If I use the scart for my dvd player with surround sound as this I understand requires both in/out. I also have a sky box and a dvd player/recorder which are linked by scart. Can I connect to TV by phono lead and the other end of lead a scart plug into dvd player? If so do I need a 5 plug phono to scart or a 3 plug phono? Whatever I need please tell what it is called so I get the right one Thanks Mel XXXXXX
The TV is a new LG-55LB650V
Surround system is built in to a dvd player and is also a LG
Model is LH-T550TB
The DVD Player/Recorder that is linked by scart is a Pioneer
Look forward to hearing from you
Thanks for that.
So it is ok to get a lead scart one end into the pioneer and the other end 5 phonos into the TV AV2 in ??
Is there a part number for this lead or a name for it.
I get lost on tech things
yes you are missing something.
I have 2 dvd players. The lg one is used only for surround sound which I will put in Scart on tv AV1 in/out.
I then have the sky box and pioneer dvd player/recorder linked by scart but need to plug it into tv. Thats why I thought of scart in out side of pioneer and then to tv into AV2 in, by means of phonos as there is only the one scart socket called AV1 in/out
This all started cos I needed a new tv. The old one had 2 scarts!!!!
I tried an optical cable but it didn't work!! I'm lost on tech issues.
Thats why I thought the lg surround needed to go through AV1 as I was told it needed both in and out.
It just remained that I needed to connect up the pioneer/sky box and change one end of scart lead into 3 or 5 phonos which is my AV2 in only
I hope that makes some form of sense
Because I am naff at tech issues like this I'm sorry if I am a pain.
The LG surround is working now as I don't have the DVD recorder connected.
Are you then suggesting that I connect the DVD recorder/Sky box by not a scart but by using 3 phonos by connecting to video output on Pioneer and the red and white for audio and then to tv to video input and of course the red and white for audio
I will connect up tomorrow and keep my fingers crossed!!!!!!!
Thanks for your help.
I have given you top rating for your fast service
Thankyou in anticipation
I'm sorry to say that it doesn't work. I have the surround sound into AV1 and the sound only works on live TV.
Sky box is linked to pioneer by scart. I removed the scart from pioneer to TV and used the 3 phonos instead. I have video coming through when I put TV to AV2 where the phonos are but no sound and I am not getting a signal from the Sky box. All this did work before on old TV with 2 scarts. I suppose you can't even convert a scart to a HDMI as it's the wrong type of signal. Oh dear what a problem!!!!
Sorry for delay, I was out.
No I didn't connect an optical cable as there is no port for it on the surround sound system
I merely took out the 2nd scart on the pioneer and connected 3 phonos to audio and video and then to TV.
I understand you BUT I made a mistake when I said that I used the 3rd phono to video, I didn't. On the surround system I used red & white for sound and the 3rd phono went to AV in audio, so all 3 ports are now full!!
Are you saying remove the 3rd phono from both tv and surround and use this jack and RCA instead or should I have used component for part of it
Did you get the pic of the rear view of the surround system I sent earlier this evening??
File of rear of surround system now I think attached
Off to bed now
will open in the am
Component video out on surround, to same color-matched jacks on TV.
3.5 mm to stereo RCA cable- 3.5 mm end to TV's Audio Out, stereo RCA end to Audio red and white AV IN (nothing connected to yellow) on home theater.
Leave the Pioneer and the Sky box connected as they are.
That is all that you need to have connected.
Thanks for that. I will order the 3.5 jack to twin RCA today
will be in touch
Good news!! The 3.5 jack to twin RCA arrived on Saturday.
All connected in 5 mins and it works.
I shall retain your details should I need any assistance in the future.
