The Quasar VV-2002 only has an NTSC (analog tuner). Very few stations with NTSC transmitters are still broadcasting. Only low-power stations were allowed to continue broadcasting an analog signal. Unless you are very close to one of the transmitters, your TV will not tune in the station.
You'll need to connect the TV to a digital-to-analog over the air converter box. (The low-end ones that were free or cheap with the government coupon are harder to find; a few models are still available.) These convert the ATSC (digital) signal to NTSC. Then use an appropriate antenna and follow the instructions to tune in the available OTA signals. Send these to the TV either on the RF or composite Line-in. Set the TV to the appropriate input and use the converter box to change channels.
I hope this helps.
(20" TVs weren't required to have an ATSC tuner until 2007. Since there are reviews for the VV-2002 from 2004, it obviously is an older set.)
I'm assuming you are getting more than two digital channels into the converter so the problem lies in how the converter is connected to the TV, which I presume is via a coaxial cable, right and you have the TV tuned to analog channel 3 or 4, right?
If that is all true, the RF coax cable solution is not going to work. The few channels you were getting, either side of 3 or 4 is just RF bleed.
Try this, acquire somehow a A/V hookup cable that has 3 RCA male jacks on each end. One cable will have YELLOW ends, This is composite VIDEO. There will be two others colored RED and WHITE (or perhaps black). This is for the AUDIO. The outputs on the converter and the inputs should be colored the same way. Hook the two up, noting which INPUT (1, 2 or 3) on the TV you have plugged into. Not sure of the exact number your TV has. Make sure you change the TV to INPUT whatever. You may also have to re-scan your converter. As long as your antenna is connected correctly gto the converter you should gain a lot more channels. Let me know how you make out.

If the TV doesn't have video/audio input jacks (I don't think this model does) and the DVD player has only video/audio outputs and no RF (channel 3 or 4) output, then you will need an RF converter. They're only about $15 or so. They need to be plugged into an electric outlet, so you may want to get a surge protected outlet strip (if you don't already have one) to plug everything into. Then just hook up the DVD's A/V outputs to the converter and tell Mom to put the TV on channel 3 and make some popcorn.
The red, blue and green RCA hook up is just video. You must also use the red and white pair of RCA jacks for the audio. You can usually find the audio red and white jacks right below the video red, blue and green RCA jacks. Get yourself an audio RCA cord with the red and white connectors and run that from your video device audio output to the audio input of the TV that corresponds with the video input of the TV. An example would be if the red, blue and green are on the "Video 1" input of your TV you will find the red and white audio input for "Video 1" right below or right next to the video inputs.
The red, blue and green video jacks are called "component video" and they only have a video signal for high definition video, so you must also run a separate audio line for it. The same holds true for the yellow video RCA connector, that one is called "composite video" and it also has only a video signal with no audio.
I hope this helps, if so a "FixYa!" rating would be very much appreciated.
If you need more help just post your concerns right here onthis thread.
If your tv just has the yellow / white, this means the audio is MONO, wich means 1 speaker, not Stereo, just connect the white onr, and leave the red one out, or... you could connect the audio to your stereo!
What brand? Often people accidentally turn the internal speakers off, although probably not on a combo unit. Other times folks turn the audio all the way down on their cable box or satt receiver, then there could be no or low audio for the TV reception. But dvd or vhs sources would still work. Always possible for the small speaker to blow, or audio output to fail.
