Cannot get DVD to Play on TV

I have a new JSI DVD Home Theater System and it requires only a RCA cable to the TV. I cannot get the DVD to play on the tv screen. I use to have a normal video cable going from my old dvd/vhs system and that just popped up on my tv when we turned it on. I have satellite on this tv which is programmed on Channel 3. I also had my old dvd/vhs programmed on channel 3 as well with no problem. I do not have the original remote for this TV, we use the satellite universal remote to program everything. I have gone in through the TV's menu and changed the DVD for video input, tried to change the channel to 3 and 4. Nothing works. It is like the TV does not know where to look for the video input. Unfortunately, this new DVD system does not have a cable connect like my last dvd/vhs system. I have also tried the s-video cable with no luck...even when I change to s-video on the TV's menu. Any suggestions, I am now without the use of DVD and my children are frantic!! :((((( Thanks for all of your help

    I tried entering channel 00 and I could not. The TV just goes back to 03. I tried to reprogram the all the channels on the TV and the TV still only will show channel 3??? I tried cutting off the Satellite and still no channels except 3?? What is up with that??

    Thanks for your advise, I am desperate!

    Oh, boy. My remote only has a button labeled, "TV input". I try clicking on that and nothing happens. However, when in the setup menu selection on the TV, it prompts you to select DVD input and it gives you several options, not connected, channel 3, channel 4, or video input. I currently have this selected to video input. You would think that would do it. It seems as though the TV is not getting this message to look elsewhere for the DVD input. Am I lost if I do not have the original remote for this TV?
    Going back to your last comment, if the video input is only for Guide plus (which I just read the features and that is for recording shows from the tv to a vcr) then that input is not going to work?!? Additionally, I have an s-cable and tried connecting that and changing that option in the setup menu for s-cable connection and that did not work either. What is a G-Link cable?

    i am trying to program my rca f32649 32" tv to play my dvd player. it keeps asking if my dvd is now tuned to channel 09. i don't understand what this means, and i can't get the dvd player to work.

    I have a GE Universal Remote programmed to operate the DVD player, but I cannot get it to work on my Cable TV so you can actually view the DVD. I tried changing the channel on the TV to 00 or 91 or 92 with the universal remote as was suggested to the previous people, but that does not work, Any other suggestions for getting the TV to turn to the DVD mode so I can actually view the DVD on the TV?

Try the old RCA/GE channels of 90/91 or 92 to get to the inputs. Or try entering channel 00. Let me know if that works.

    By the way stand alone DVD players never have the RF (channel 3/4) output because that would degrade the picture.

    OK, I looked at the manual for your model of TV. When you are programming the DVD to the input, that is only useful for the Guide Plus feature and using the G-Link cables. If you are using a RCA universal remote, it should have a button much like the original that says "Who-Input" on it or below it? That will change to the video input on the back...

How do i hook up a rca Rtd325w dvd home theater to a coby tft lcd flatscreen

You can use either the multi pin connector cable, or plug the white, yellow and red cables to the TV set at the DVD player input or "Video 1" and the the audio output of the TV Another red and white set of RCA cables into the audio input of the home theater. This way the TV can play through the home theater system when you are watching cable or over the air.

If you do not want to hear the TV audio, you should go to the audio properties and select "external speaker system" but if you do this the home theater system must be on to hear any audio from the set until you set it back to the TV speakers through the TV's setup menus again.

I am trying to hook my home theater system to my flat screen tv to play dvd's and to hear the radio.

The TV has nothing to do with listening to the radio. All the TV REQUIRES in as a minimum is a video input from the RTD. Page 2.

Your other devices may have guidance in their manuals.

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System

Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.
