Hooking Up a VCR and DVD to a TV with One Cable PlugHook the incoming cable from either the antenna, satellite, or cable system to the VCR. From there go to the DVD player, and then to the TV. AnswerIt sounds like you're trying to hook AV awesome cables from your DVD player to your TV which only has an AC input. If this is the case, try using an AC cable (ordinary antenna cable) to connect your VCR to your TV by plugging one end into the output the other to your TV. (There are typically two AC plugs on a VCR, one is input the other output.) Look on your VCR for AV input. These are plugs that are red, white and yellow. Some VCR's only have white and yellow. There should be three, or six plugs (two, or four if you have a mono VCR) Plug the Yellow chord into the yellow input socket, and be sure it's not plugged into the output socket. Do likewise with the White chord, and if you have a red plug do the same. There should be simalar atachments on your DVD player. Be sure to plug the chords into the sockets marked output on the DVD player. In order to watch a DVD, you will need to turn your TV to channel 3, or 4, and set your VCR to its video monitoring setting. This varies with each VCR. Usally there is a button on the remote that Says VIDEO. Other times it is a channel number (I've seen 91, 00, 100).

If you want to watch TV, plug the tv cable into the VCR's input(usally right next to the output).

If you still have trouble, I would suggest, plugging everything in and out and play with it until you have a picture. And, if you're VCR doesn't have AV input, you can buy a converter at your electronics provider. Ask the geek behind the counter for an AV to AC converter.

Where do you hook up remote wire when using stock CD player?

the remote wire only needs a power source for the amp to turn on, so if u have a looped cable running from the remote input on the amp to the front of the car with a switch and then back to the power cable on the amp u can control when the amp is on just by turning the switch on or off. otherwise u will have to figure out which cable on the back of the stereo is switched power, or which cable only supplies power when the car is running. and that would require a wiring diagram.

How do you hook a video game up to a old cable-ready tv with only one slot in the back?

Connect the coax cable from the game to the antenna in on the back of the TV set after disconnecting the cable that is currently hooked there. Turn the game on and change the channel selector to channel 3 or 4. If you would like both connected to the TV a the same time to avoid having to make this cable swap every time , you need a RF CABLE SWITCH also know as a A-B SWITCH.

How do you hook up cable?

Call your local cable company and say you would like to subscribe to there service. They will hook you up outside. It is either up to you to run cabling inside for hookup or you can have the cable provider do it for an extra fee. Run at least RG6 or RG6 quad coaxial cable inside with compression fittings only. Do not use crimp or screw on types as they tend to degrade and cause signal loss. If you are not that handy then have the cable company do it for you.

How do you remove the speed governor on a 1994 E350 16ft box truck?

As far as I know the only road speed governor would be an aftermarker unit. It can be removed but you would have to know what you're doing. The ones I've seen take the thottle cable off the thottle body and run it to the aftermarket unit. Then a new cable from the unit back to the thottle body. I guess you could hook the original cable back to the thottle body and "by-pass" the unit. Rich
