After trying to hook up an old video game system via the front A/V jacks, my little TV no longer has a picture or sound, but only a black screen. The numbers that identify the channel show up, but not my satellite picture. I do not have the original remote.

Re: 13" Orion TV having display issues...
There may be a short in the video game system, which could have fried something in the input circuits. And of course, make sure you have your TV cable plugged in, and the TV set to cable position before determining that the TV has an actual problem. Unfortunately, some functions may only be on the remote of course.

You can, but you'll need an RF converter (also called a modulator) to do it. The TV doesn't have a/v input jacks and can only tune in signals coming in at the antenna connector. The converter takes the audio and video signals from the game console and generates a TV signal on channel 3 or 4 which the set can tune in. Unfortunately, this reduces the picture and sound quality somewhat, but it's the only option for your TV. RF converters are available at most large retailers and online, usually in the $15 to $30 range.
Tries use the front or right side panel manual controls panel.Use the Channels buttons UP/DOWN push the channels UP button couple time.U should get in Video 1 or 2 which ever ur video game console hook in.Or your tv might just have a manual video button,put that u in video 1 or 2.Try website 1-800-remotes Factory original to buy an exact remote ur problem solved.None the solutions,help.
from the looks of the picture you have one audio video input port on the front of the tv. The connectors are yellow and red or yellow and white. Yellow is video and red or white are audio. Find those same connectors on the back or your dvd player, hook it up to the tv and there you go. You'll have to go to game mode or input 2 on the tv to see the dvd player.
you will need to have a standard a/v cable or rf modulator the a/v will hook to the yellow/white jack on the front and you NEED the remote with the game button on it to switch to the game input on the front, otherwise buy a $20 stand alone modulator to plug your a/v cable into and tune to ch3.
Do you have the original remote control?. Without it you will not be able to switch to video or to the TV mode. If you do have the Original remote hand unit, look for a button call input or video. A universal will not work so please do not waist your hard earnd cash. Good Luck
