Model no. dtq2605fc how do we hook up a dvd player to this?
There are several ways to hook up a DVD player to a TV.
The simplest method, which works with any TV, is to use the DVD player's RF (radio frequency) output on channel 3 or 4, connect the output cable to the TV's antenna jack, and put the TV on the appropriate channel. There are two problems with this method, though. First, I'm not aware of any new players that have RF output these days. The manufacturers don't include it, figuring you'll be using the direct audio and video outputs. So if you're trying to connect a new player, you likely don't have this option. Second, if the player does have RF out, it's usually not stereo sound and the picture quality can suffer.
If the set has AV input jacks available, you would use those and select the AV input from the remote control or front panel. There are some possible problems with this method too. The biggest one is that if you've lost or thrown away the original remote, you might not be able to select the AV input. (Don't laugh, many people don't realize they should keep the original remote even if they never use it.) And on TV sets with only mono sound, you need a Y-adapter cable to combine the right and left audio outputs into one channel, so you lose any stereo effects.
The last way is for TVs without an AV input and DVD players without RF output. You use an RF converter (also called an RF modulator), which takes the audio and video signals from the player and makes a channel 3 or 4 signal you can tune in as I described earlier. RF converters are available at Radio Shack stores, most TV retailers and from many sources online. They're easy to connect, but you'll need an AC outlet nearby since they need power.
One of these methods will work for you, and you'll be watching DVDs soon. Thanks for using Fixya!
