How to connect a karaoke machine to your home entertainment system

Hooking up your new karaoke machine is a very simple task, especially if you are armed with the correct set of instructions. To ensure that all parts of your entertainment system are connected correctly, read and learn everything you will need to know.

Step 1: take the necessary safety precautions

 

Before attempting to connect your new karaoke machine, you will need to make sure that the machine and the device you want to connect it to are safely turned off. If you want to be more cautious, turn off all the components in your home entertainment center and feel free to unplug them as well. When working with electronic products, personal safety should always be at the top of your priority list, so be careful not to skip this crucial step. After confirming that all required devices have been turned off, you can proceed to the next step.

Step 2 – Start connecting your machine to your TV

Begin this step by removing the A / V connecting cables that were included with your machine. These cables should be color-coded, with the red and white cables representing video and the yellow cable representing audio. From here, it’s simply a matter of matching each cable to its corresponding port on both devices.

 

Carefully route the red, white, and yellow cables into the A / V connection ports on the back of your karaoke machine and television. However, for most newer HDTVs, these plug-in ports tend to be located on the right side of the TV. To make things even simpler, the devices’ respective connection ports, as well as the audio and video cables, will likely be color-coded, so you shouldn’t have any trouble determining which cable connects to which port. These connection cables will help ensure that sound from the machine is transmitted clearly and that song lyrics are displayed correctly on your television screen.

If you are having trouble in either area, it is most likely due to a poorly connected cable. Once the patch cords are in place, you’re ready to go.

Step 3: apply your finishing touches

Having made the necessary connections, you are almost done. All that’s left is to plug the microphone that was included with your machine into its designated plug-in port, which can usually be found on the back of the device. Now plug in your new karaoke machine, turn it on, turn on your TV, and enjoy.
