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!! :(((((

If you have an a/v cable for your playstation, run the yellow wire to the video input of the tv and the red and white rca to the input of your sound system....put your tv on a/v or input and put your surround sound system on the input of where you plugged it in at....gd luck....
** in order to listen and watch your DVD,
DVD 's "2xRCA audio" and "1x RCA Video" cables for "OUT" should go to Tv "IN" connections separately ..("IN" goes to "OUT" of other
..pls remember,Always reverse connected ) (audio will come thru Receiver and TV.) Since you successfully connected your Receiver to play video on TV (one way only ) ,here is the second reverse action if you wish to listen your TV on Receiver **
you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : RCA jacks or
"Optic cable output" or "SCART "connector " of your TV .( every TV has
different type of Audio out jacks ) ** to "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input" of your Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the necessary cables on your hand ) ** than just switch to
respective mode on Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver .. There you go..Tv sound are on the Receiver as well.
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as
simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover
this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find
Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have
other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those
devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you
use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances
are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the
way it was.
Press the Input button on your remote control to return to
the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be
connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2.
Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite
receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by
twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections
for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't
receive a programming signal on the TV.
Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage
several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD
player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player,
you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on
Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by
accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the
Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or
right to turn the speakers on or off.
Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your
external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems
use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television
If you REALLY want to plug your tv into your home theater system there should be rca (red and white) jacks on the back of the tv that say "audio out" or "speaker out" thats your tv's audio output. which is where you would plug in the TV to your home theater system.
But there's really no reason to do this and its not the most desirable way to set u a home theater. Sound doesnt come from your tv, and therefore your tv shouldnt be plugged into speaker (unless you have old school wal cable) sound comes from your cable box, DVD player, VHS, Xbox, Ps3 etc. the sound comes from your source, and these sources should be hooked up directly you your home theater reciever
Have you tried just hoooking up the DVD player by itself? Is the DVD player output setting correct? Also, make sure the "video input" is set for the correct channel that you are viewing (i.e. Channel 3).
The audio out jacks in the back of the cable box can support up to 5.1 channels of audio to a home theater system. Take the DVD player and plug it into the TV with only the video cable and the audio cables into the theater syste. If you have and questions you can ask and if pictures are needed than I can post them.
