Hello there,

If you are using the phono leads (well done by the way on getting this far!) then that is not enough.

You will need another phono lead.

The two phono plugs on either end are for the sound (Red-R & White-L) and the new phono cable is for the picture (Yellow on VCR & Green on TV socket).

You need to plug the two that you have R&L into the audio L&R of the TV (please look at pg16 of the manual, these are the far left red & white plugs) and the yellow from the VCR will go to the green socket on the back of the TV.

On the VCR you are looking for the AV out jacks (red, white & yellow).

After you have the cables connected, please press the source button and select AV as the source. You should then see the picture from the VCR when it is playing a movie.

A rating is only needed when we are finished. Press "Reply to Expert" to continue with the troubleshooting. Thank you!

That sounds good, but the vcr only has two points : video yellow and audio white,

the only other thing is the RFout and an aerial point

would either of those do ?

Expert:  hongkongpom replied 1 year ago.

Hello again,

If you have the choice of Scart then use that.

The next best is the phono

The last is the RF out. If you use the RF out then you'll need to tune the TV to the RF VCR's output channel...most probably channel 68.

I would stick to the phono.

The VCR yellow point (make sure it says video OUT) would go to the TV's green point. The white would go the far left white on the TV.
