I cant get my dvd to play using my rf modulator

I have everything hooked up but when I turn the dvd player on and put the tv on 3 all i get is gray fuzz on the screen. The same thing happens if I switch everything to channel 4. I have also tried turning the cable box off but that doesn't seem to get me anywhere either. It is a toshiba tv, and a ge rf modulator does that matter?

Plug the DVD video and audio cables in to the RF converter. Connect the cable box output to the antenna input connector on the RF converter. Connect the RF converter output to the TV antenna jack. This way, when the converter is off it will pass the cable box signal through to the TV. (Most RF converters are auto-sensing. When it detects the a/v signals from the DVD player it switches its output on, and switches back to the cable box signal when you turn off the DVD.) Also be sure the RF converter is plugged in to AC power.

If you've done all this and you still have fuzzy pictures on either of the converter's output channels, you have a bad converter. Return it if you can, or replace it.

Can't find where to connect for dvd. no white,yellow,or red plug.


Hello, Thank you for the opportunity to help

Sounds like you got a pretty old tv there, its frustrating not to see the RED/WHT/YELLOW plugs on it. This is because this tv was made when that was not out yet. So are you out of luck? No, you ar in luck but it will cost you a little money.

You can purchase one of these RF modulators at Radio shack for like $29.95.

OR

If you have a VCR, Generally they have these plugs out the back of them you would plug the DVD into the VCR in the Video IN. You're TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 (dending on your vcr) You vcr will need to be powered ON then tuned to VIDEO INPUT. You can do this by using the remote's up/Down channels buttons or pressing input on the remote depending on the VCR.

The VCR will need to be connected to the TV's coaxe port on the back, That port looks like this:

If you do not have a VCR you would purchase a RF modulator you TV will need to be on channel 3! The modulator is connect to the port pictured above above. The DVD is then introduced to the ports on the back of the modulator witch looks like this:

Your TV must be equipped with AV inputs (RCA jacks - yellow, white, red)
in order to connect this unit. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you will need a RF Modulator to connect the DVD recorder to your TV's
antenna/cable input. RF Modulators are available at
major electronics retailers such as Radio Shack or Wal-Mart and allow the 3 RCA outs from the recorder to connect to the RF modulator RCA inputs and then you can connect a coaxial cable from the modulator to the TV RF input and select channel 3 or 4 on the TV. The DVD recorder will not pass thru signals to the TV using coaxial cable as far as DVD are concerned.

I haven't fixed it yet. I think I figured out that I have to get a RF modulator that will accomodate more than 1 video source. I just disconnected my dvd player and hooked up my wii to my RF modulator and it works great.

Have an RCA F27636BC TV. Can u hook a DVD player


How to hookup TV

If you have a TV with only a single coax input and you want to hook up components like DVD players and VCRs, here's how to do it.



What you need to connect your DVD player or game players to a TV that only has a VHF/UHF 75-ohm F-connector ("coax antenna input").

1.) RF Modulator with Stereo Audio Inputs.



2.) 6 foot long coaxial cable with male "F" connectors. This cable goes from the modulator to the TV. The modulator also has a coaxial input to plug in your antenna or your VCR.



3.) 6 foot long Video and Audio Cables with "RCA" plugs. The cables connect the yellow, red and white outputs from your DVD or game player to the yellow, red and white inputs of the modulator.





Works with X-Box, PlayStation, Nintendo or other devices that output audio/video via the RCA plugs and you want to connect them to your coaxial only TV.

We just got a model 25TR15 C122 from my sister. Can we add a DVD player? We only see one plug for the cable and do not know how to hook it up.


What you need is called an RF converter (available at most electronic stores or Wal-Mart for around $20.00). The RF convertor works so that you can watch your DVD on your TV through Channel 3. The DVD hooks to your RF converter by RCA jacks (yellow,red and White) and the cable that goes to your tv now is hooked into the RF converter and another cable is than hooked out from the RF converter to your TV. Set the TV on Channel 3 (or 4) and the dvd will automatically play through

DVD to TV - can't connect. No inputs on the actual TV


You could buy a RF Modulator, into which you can Input the 3 cables (Video, Audio Right and audio Left) and the Modulator will make it into a single RF signal, which can be tuned by the TV. RF Modulators are generally set at UHF Channel 36 by Default. One of the easisst available is the Rabbit Ears Modulator, which "transmits' the signal wirelessly to the TV. Not more than 15-20$
