I plugged in the normal 3 Video inputs and it still doesn't work.
More info is needed, please. When you say 3 video inputs, what are you referring to? I believe the Sanyo has the HDMI, RGB/YPbPr component video, S-video component, RCA composite video and Coaxial connections, though I'm not sure how many of each. So lets start with the best quality to least.
HDMI: This is one cable that provides both audio & video and produces the best picture quality. It comes in different lengths and is a wide, flat connection. A must for 1080p resolution signals.
Component video, RGB or YPbPr analog component cables: 5 separate RCA cables, 3 of which are video that separate the video signal & 2 audio cables. The 3 video cables are generally red, green and blue (RGB) or marked individually with the letters Y, Pb/Cb & Pr/Cr . The audio cables are red & white. You may see these on the back of DVD players often. They will carry a signal up to 1080i but not 1080p.
S-video component: One cable for video, it is a round connection with several pins in it and will only plug in one way. You must use 2 RCA cables for audio with this cable, red & white again.
Composite video: 3 separate cables; Red, White & Yellow. Red & White are audio, left and right while yellow is video.
And finally there is coaxial which it the cable that is identical to the cable from the pole/ cable box or your dish. It is the poorest quality.
What can happen is you are using 3 standard RCA cables and have them plugged into the component input & they will not carry the signal, or one end in component input and the other end in the composite output or vice versa. Another is that you have the wrong input selected on the menu. Check all your cables and connections, plus the input you have selected on the TV itself.
