Hooking up older Curtis-Mathes TV to a newer DVD player.

Trying to hook up DVD player to older Curtis Mathis TV. TV only has coax outpout, DVD has none. VCR is connected to TV via coax, but only has yellow/white input jacks, no red. We tried plugging in anyway, but can't get the TV to even stop cycling through its channels (no remote) and also the DVD shows power but is not doing anything when we hit play. Is this hopeless?

It is hopeless if the television will not stop cycling through its channels. That is an unattended operation and may point to there being something really wrong with this television OR it may be one of the televisions that has to be fed a signal of some type in order to stop cycling through its channels.

First, how would you connect a dvd player to this television: You would have to buy a part that has yellow red and white holes on one side and a coax output on the other side. I bought one from my local drugstore a little while back. It is Philips brand, and it says connect any dvd player to any television right on the package. I don't know if they are sold anymore, but I imagine that some store would still have them. Then you would disconnect the vcr and connect that part there with the dvd player connected to it (the part I described).

Next, if your television is the sort that needs at least one channel to be programmed into it so it won't keep cycling them, you would have to connect a converter box where you have the vcr connected right now. I know, this troubleshooting takes work, and there is no way to tell if this will work.

SOURCE: Interface error! Trun off the power

Faulty power-supply symptoms:

The front panel display and buttons are completely nonfunctional and appear dead. The unit will do nothing more than display the following messages on the TV screen:

Interface error
(and or)
Interface error! Turn off the power

If a DVD or VHS tape was inserted prior to the error occurring, you won't be able to eject either from that point further. They'll remain stuck inside the unit until you've completed the repair detailed below.

SOURCE: I have an old sanyo vwm 710 vcr. I have a new

Have you tried pressing the INPUT button on the remote; try pressing it up to 3 different times because I believe it sequences 2 or 3 times. With mine, hooked up to my RCA TV, 1st push puts it in Line1 on a blank blue screen, 2nd push shows Line 2 on a blank blue screen, and 3rd push brings it back to my TV with my satellite picture showing.

Sincerely, Rick

SOURCE: i'm trying to connect my denon dvd player to tv

The yellow plug is composite video; the red and white are analog audio. Not knowing specifics about your TV or Denon model number, I would suggest:

-- the red and white connectors go to the audio in on the DVD, and to the audio out on the TV. There will be a left channel and a right channel. Make sure you connect the same color plug on the same channel. In other words, if you put the red plug in the right audio out on the TV, also put the red plug in the right audio in on the DVD, the white in the left audio out on the TV and in on the audio in on the DVD.

-- the yellow connector will go on the video out on the TV, video in on the DVD.

For better audio, consider using gold connectors, if you don't already have same.

Alternatively, you may wish to purchase and use an S-video connector if your equipment allows. This would replace the yellow composite video cable, and enhances your image.

Hope this helps!
