RCA model F27688-attempting to hookup new VHS/DVD player.
No sound or video. VHS/DVD people say I need to get to the video channel on the TV to get that from the player. I do not know how to find the video channel on the TV. Channel 3 is one of the local channels. How do I get to channel 2?

Basic DVD player connections consist of three wires: Right audio (red), left audio (white), and video (yellow). These plug into corresponding connections on the rear of the TV. Your RCA TV may be so old it does not have these input connectors on the rear. Tne "game channel" you are attempting to find does not exist.
If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!
Depending on how many hook ups you have on your tv it may have a factory designated channel. Example: Video 1, Game, etc. I know my TV has several different video channels. It's more a matter of trial and error until you find the vidoe channel for your oulet. Input channels are usually found before channel 1. Or look on your remote and see if it has a button to switch the channel to your input channel. Good Luck.
I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or
s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the
front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it
asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video
Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to
the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select
Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input
you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video
(yellow composite cable).
use another tv and see what it does if it works on the other that is to say that your tv is defected in the video circuit.if the dvd does not work on the other tv then your dvd is not functioning. then it is time to call in the tech,good luck.
