Customer Question
Hi, I am trying...

Hi, I am trying to hook up my new (used) Panasonic Omnivision VCR to my Panasonic smart TV, How do I do It?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact make and model of your smart tv?

Sorry it took so long. the tv is a Panasonic Viera Model #tc5DA55)U If i read it correctly

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I just received it yesterday. I plugged in the cords to what seemed to be the most appropriate places and all I got was static.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

I'm not sure I ave the cords connected correctly, and I did not receive a manual for the machine.

And to avoid asking you to do something you've already tried, can you please tell me what / any and all troubleshooting / specific steps you've already attempted other than / to address the above.

Still, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • the standard connections would be to make use of an A/V RCA-to-RCA cable set where:
  • - yellow would be for the video connections;
  • - red for the audio right channel; and
  • - white for the audio left channel.

Always, the TV would have to be set to an external input/source. Depending on the model, this is done on the TV remote for external input source IN SEL button, A/V, Video, INPUT, SOURCE, INPUT SELECT or a term to such effect.
