Re: Cannot tune to channel 0 to use my dvd

If television has rca outs in the back(yellow, red, and white connectors) you must use the remote on the television to change the video input mode. If you do not have the RCA's you need to go to Radio Shack or Wal Mart and by an RF Modulator. and follow the instuctions with the modulator.

How can I play my Emerson vcr/dvd dual deck to play on my sylvania tvk139k with no remote?

Try pressing the channel down button repeatedly until the lowest channel is displayed. Now keep going to see if it changes to an external port like F1 or R1 If that won't get you a picture try going to shopjimmy website to get a new remote.

How to connect a 1999 zenith TV to a cable box and

Connet the output of the cable box to the DVD player and the TV out output of the DVD player to the TV (TV must be tuned to Channel 0, Chanel 3 or 4). You should be able to use the remote to switch between the DVD signal and the cable signal.

Hope it helps.

Input key quit working on my remote

Some tv's will scroll into the video channel's with a channel up and down so like from channel 0 to video 1 and then to channel 99. you may have to program the video channel into the list with the channel add/delete function. I would check ebay or for a replacemnt. In some cases the remote can be opened and the button that is not working can be cleaned and restored to working condition. In most cases there is one screw andthe remote snap fit's together. So try a universal first and the n look into oem replacement options.

Hooking up dvd player

Look for any button either on the unit or the remote marked with common stuff like A/V, Input, Source, Aux or Au, Line, TV-VID. or try dialing in Channel 0, or 00, or 1, or Channel Down surf below Channel 2. Alternately, get into the menu and look for stuff concerning Auxiliary inputs.

If all else fails, you can run a DVD's audio and video line-signals THROUGH a VCR. Hookup the VCR to the TV's RF (threaded) connector using standard coaxial cable. Hookup the DVD a/v output lines to the Line-ins of the VCR. Tune the TV to Ch. 3, tune the VCR to Line-in or Auxiliary and press the play or tv/vid button on the VCR to force the DVD signal through on channel 3 onto the TV.

Tv problems


I am assuming that you are using cable and not an aerial/antenna.

On your concern "...channels do not tune...correct channel numbers...", it is possible that when you re-tuned the TV your setting was set to AIR or STD, try to re-tune again but this time pls verify that you are in CABLE mode. If on the other hand you are using aerial/antenna, then it is the other way around.

Channel 0 would automatically be your Audio/Video (which is where your DVD/VCR is connected). If you re-tune, chances are that Channel 0 ) would be back. To be on the safe side, pls power on likewise the DVD/VCR.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Ok here goes.

1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.

2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.

3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.

4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.

If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).

Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .

If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.

Hope this helps.

After auto channel set up, how do you get to Channel 3 for DVD?

Try pushing "03" on the remote. You can also edit the channel list manually, and add or delete any station you desire if the autoprogram does not work right. You really want to connect the DVD to the audio/video inputs (Does it even have an output that connects to the tuner?) anyway. Most DVD players, unless they also contain a VHS player, don't work the way you seem to think they do! Even if you have a machine that works through the tuner, you won't get the best picture or stereo sound unless you use your TV's A/V (or "Line In") plugs with a three section cable having three RCA plugs on each end, NOT the screw-on cable TV or antenna type connectors (RG-59) on a SINGLE very stiff coaxial cable. I am as confused by your question as you are! I don't suggest trying to brush your teeth with your TV either. :-)

I don't think it can be done. Might make a good suggestion for the manufacturers to add to their future sets though.
