Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

I have a 27N-S100 TV. It was given to me with no remote. The Cable plug thing in the back is completely broken off, but I was told the TV could work perfectly by using the 3 colored cables (I believe they are called A/V cables: yellow, red and white?) and going through a VCR. I have tried endlessly to hook these cables up with my VCR and I am getting nowhere. Not having the remote, I downloaded the owners manual and read through it and it showed how to access the menu through the two channel bu



Answers :

What you're trying to do shouldn't work unless the VCR has a digital tuner in it or your cable company still hasn't converted over to digital as of yet. You will need to get a digital cable box from your cable company.

Connect the av cables to either the front or back of the television. I believe the front is av/video 2 and the back is av/video 1. You have to choose either video 1 or video 2 from the television's menu in order to access these parts of your television.

Connect the cable box to the other end of the av cables and you should be all set. You would change channels with your cable remote and always leave the Sharp television on video or

What you're trying to do: Connect the cable to where it says in on the back of the vcr. and connect the av cables to the vcr where it says out. You will have to do a channel scan on the vcr.

My Durabrand dwt1304 was hooked up to cable. I now have relocated the TV into my workshop and am attempting to hook it up to a digital converter and an antenna.
