Connect magnavox dvd to ge tv HELP!

GE tv model #27GT271 has only a coaxial connect port (old threaded kind). Magnavox dvd model DP100MW8B has no coaxial connect, only plug in component ports. DVD manual says dvd player must be hooked up to tv. Is there a way to make this work? If so, how? Thanks!!

    I have this problem also.
    The RF module looks a lot like the digital converter box I put on my TV. My converter box has AV inputs and I was wondering if I could hook a DVD player to them and make it work. Amy ideas on this ?

There are a few options to connect an older t.v. with a DVD player.

  1. You can connect your new DVD player to a VCR....not recommended as quality loss will occur....use RCA plugs (Red/white/yellow) but it is easy...and many people have an extra one around
  2. plug one end of RCA cord into DVD player, other end to VCR (colour match red plug to red cord)
  3. then to connect VCR to TV...use the coax VIDEO OUT (on VCR) to the TV

  4. OR you can purchase an RF modulator like this at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/stores/detail/-/electronics/B00009MDBN#moreAboutThisProduct
  5. this option has a greater cost...but the picture quality will not suffer....Note..you will not have Surround sound...but as it is an older tv. you were not used to that anyway..
Great way to keep an older working t.v. out of the landfill

hope this helps!

What you will need is an RF modulator. They are relatively inexpensive and can be found at local electronic stores. The following link will provide you with a background on the device and how it functions and connects.http://hometheater.about.com/cs/dvdlaserdisc/a/aadvdrfmoda.htm I hope this has been helpful and thank you for using Fix Ya.

What model number of the remote do you have? I also have a GE universal remote and I have used it on over 30 tv's and every single 1 worked. Do you do the autoscan or put them in manually?

If this model is coaxial only, chances are there is no audio/video inputs. Getting a newer TV model is the only solution.

I have a GE TV model: 27GT271 and no sound


Possible cause of the problrm is bad/poor solder on the grounds for the tuner circuit shield an the bottom (solder side) of the circuit board. Grounds need a wire jumper from point to point. This was a common problem for those sets and ocassionally it would take out the eeprom chip with it. (Various other problems were shrinking picture/fuzzy picture and intermitt. power)

DVD input with signal access


IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!
