We just bought a Toshiba SD-V295KU DVD/video player and are trying to connect it to our Toshiba 27DF46 TV. There is no outside cable or antennae. The antennae we have sits on top of the TV and is connected to it by a coaxial cable. We have the audio/video cable connected by appropriate colors, with the OUT on the DVD side and the IN on the TV side. There is also a S-video cable connecting the TV and the VCR. We are unable to get the picture from the DVD or video on the TV, even though we have it on Channel 3. We do still get the local channels on the TV. What else should we do? (There is no co-axial port on the DVD player).
I had a Phillips VCR/ DVD combo connected to an Emerson TV via RCA cables, with the TV connected to Satellite Cable service (no box, just cable in the wall.) When I moved, I connected the TV and DVD/ VCR exactly the same way but without the satellite cable and nothing works. The channels are set and the cables are connected properly. Neither component will work with my other TV or DVD player (which are working together fine, TV was connected directly to the cable box in the old house.) They're almost brand new, but I'm ready to use them for target practice...

Re: connecting VCR to TV
Oh man dont shoot your stuff instead use your remote and go to your menu and select your input. You tv is looking at your coaxial input but you can select which input you want. 1, 2 front back whatever you need. channell 3 or 4 has nothing to do with connecting up your dvd if you connect and choose the front connection in your menu.

If your using the component outputs from your DVD player I would first check to make sure that the cables for the Red and Blue channels are connected properly. If the cable is connected correctly then try replacing both the Red and Blue channel cable. If this fails to fix the problem try connecting to another component input on your TV if you have one available.
You might also want to check to see if you switched on the progressive scan switch on the back of the VCR/DVD unit. If you know someone with another DVD player have them bring it over and see if the problem is still exists.
If the green picture is still present then the problem is and internal problem with the TV and you will need to find a repair center for it. If the problem goes away then the problem is with the VCR/DVD combo unit. You can at this point also try using just the Video Out from the DVD player.
Hope these suggestions will help you with your problem.
I don't know how you connect the unit to the tv. Let's just start on basic: composite video/audio(yellow-video, white/red-audio) connect to TV composite video/audio input behind the TV. If the audio works but no picture,try to use another video input behind the tv.if that still doesn't work,use a different video cable! Good luck!
