Power Outage - now DVD will not play through AV

I have the SB313 Spongebob TV with SB329 Spongebob DVD Player. DVD player is hooked up to the TV with RCA cables (audio/video jacks in the back of the TV). In order to switch from TV to DVD, all you had to do was press the AV IN button on the TV remove. The connections are all the same, but now when I press the AV IN button, I get a blue screen tuning to AV1, press the AV IN button again, tunes to AV2. Neither of them shows the DVD player. I tried connecting the RCA cables to the audio/video jacks in the front of the TV...that didn't work either. Also, a cool little picture of Spongebob used to come up when switching to DVD, and that hasn't come up either. I can't find an option on the menu to deal with AV. Please help!!!!

Sponge bob DVD player will work on a regular TV but will not show up on the sponge bob tv anymore. Also tried a different DVD player and only get a blue screen. Shows AV then AV then tv or something. It is...

Your Emerson Sponge Bob's model will be SB350. It is a TV/DVD combo, with two AV inputs too. You ahve to see only DVD player with it as you says. You can change its mode to eiter TV/AV or DVD/TV by its remote control buttons. Press the DVD/TV mode button on the remote control to chage the modes to TV or DVD. On DVD mode, you can play DVDs with it. I thinks that you have its user manual with you now. Go to its pate [23] where there is illustrations for which button on the remote control handset should be pressed to select this. If you haven't its user manual with you, send your email address to me by FixYa comment box. I'll send a copy you the user manual to you by return mail. OK.

How do you hook up dvd/vcr to play on this tv

This television has front and back rca jacks. Those are the yellow red and white holes. You would get an rca cable and connect it between this television and the dvd player. Then you would have to change av inputs on the television's remote to access the DVD player's signal.

Spongebob dvd player is not playing on Spongebob sb 314 tv

You need a TV with an A/V input option. I believe your set does not have this option.

You can look at getting an A/V modulator. Check with any local electronics store. The salesman can give you the details about how to set this up with an A/B switch so that you can select between the modulator and the cable system.

Hook up

You can by an AV splitter box from dick smith or even k-mart audio section that allows you to plug all your units into it, then leads go to your TV. There is a switch on the box which you flick over depending whether you want to watch a DVD or play your game unit.

The other option is to have a llok at the back of your DVD player. Some have input AV's (the red, white and yellow holes !) where you could plug your game console into. Then you just leave your dvd plugged into your tv as normal. To play your game console you turn on TV and DVD player. Have TV on "AV" channel as well as your DVD player on "AV" channel (may also be your input or component channel.

Hope this helps :)

Spongebob tv

You can only have one item plugged in to the ave jack at one time. Seems silly for a tv with two sets of av ins, but i ran in to the same problem and this works. Just unplug the dvd player or the game console.
