Can't find button on tv to change source in order to play dvd

There appears to be no external button to change the source to play a dvd from a compact player that I just attached. There is a menu button, but that is not one of the choices. I do not have a manual. Can you direct me to a manual and/or solve the problem?

    It doesn't work. When I pass channel 2, it skips to 99 and then on down. I wish it had worked.

I'm assuming that you do not have access to the remote for the TV. If you do, you can simply press "INPUT" on the remote.

If you have no remote, try this:
Press the "MENU" button on the TV.
Press "CH Down" until "Channel" is highlighted, and "MENU" to select it.
Press "CH Down" to highlight "List and Labels", and "MENU" to select it.
Press "CH Down" to go below channel 1, you should see "FRNT" displayed.
Press "MENU" to get out of the Menu system.
You should now be seeing whatever is plugged into your front connectors.

Simply pressing one of the channel buttons will switch back to normal TV mode. I could find no faster way to access the front connectors without using the remote.

How do I get channels on my Emerson tv with dvd? I have tried everything I could think of and I only get channel 23 and that is kinda grainy looking.


I don't understand the question. Why do you need channel settings for the DVD? Are you asking what channel to play the DVD on? It won't be a TV channel, it will be a separate video input source setting, usually found on the remote. The TV may show Video 1 or HDMI for the source in order to watch an external source like DVD.

How do i change the input


The 27" TV uses the same instructions as the 20", and I found the manual for you at the link below. Answering your question directly, here is the section of the instructions about changing input:
-----
Changing the TV's Input Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, if you've connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR & DVD) using the Video/Audio input,you will want to be able to view the signal from the component.To do this, you will need to switch from the ' TV ' input to the 'AV1-AV3, CVI' Input, as follows. 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then " Set-Up " menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHV buttons to select " Input ". 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change the input source from ' TV ' to 'AV1, AV2, AV3, CVI'. 4 Wait 20 seconds, or press DISPLAY button or MENU button to return to normal TV viewing. * CVI means the Component Video Input (Y/ PB/ PR) from the DVD player etc.* Users can also select these input modes with the TV/AV button or the INPUT button on theremote controller. * On the AV1 mode , if you connect the S-VHS jack to your TV, "AV1" is changed to "S-VIDEO".

II HAVE A 13 INCH BRAND MODEL DWT 1304. I JUST WANT TO USE IT FOR A DVD PLAYER. I HAVE NO REMOTE ,HOW DO I CHANGE THE TV TO PLAY DVD OR VEDIO


Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.

How do you access the video mode in order to watch a movie on a dvd play or play a video game?


Hi, usually the function button on the remote control to select the input mode / source is a circle or a square with an arrow pointing into it (see below).


b74fea7.jpg Each time you press this, the next available source is selected in a set order, e.g. TV / AV1 / AV2 / HDMI / PC

If using a SCART interface for your DVD player, the TV should automatically switch to the DVD source when you activate the DVD player (take it out of standby).

What channel do I set my TV to in order to play a DVDdisc?


Assuming your DVD player is properly connected to the video and audio inputs of the TV, you should be able to press the "input select" button on the remote and toggle between TV and DVD. A copy of your manual is here: http://www.emersonaudiovideo.com/pdf/manual/CR202EM9.pdf

Just got a dvd player, how do i get to play dvd mode?


There are connections on the back of your TV for Audio and Video inputs. You connect the corresponding connections to your DVD player. You then use the TV/VCR SOURCE button on your remote to change to that input. In case you don't have your manual the following web address will take you to a place that will let you download the manual.

My dvd


He may have reconnected the DVD player to a different connection on the back of TV. If so, you'll need to change the INPUT source using your tv remote control. On the TV remote, there should be a button that says something like INPUT or SOURCE. This button will let the TV display the signal coming through the different jacks on the back of the tv.

AV channel on magnavox tv


This worked for my 20" Philips Magnavox 20MT4405/17 TV, it might work for you as well. DISCLAIMER: This is just a solution that I pieced together information from various internet sources, as I could not find a free copy of the service manual to verify this. Furthermore, I am not a technician of any sort.

Enter your TV's service menu by pressing this sequence of buttons on your remote while the TV is on:
062596 Menu

Use the arrows on your remote to scroll down to "Options", push the right arrow to enter options.

Change the 7 options parameters in order to (write down the original values in case this does not solve):
OP1: 065
OP2: 215
OP3: 065
OP4: 162
OP5: 204
OP6: 201
OP7: 000

You need to enter all 3 digits for every number, even if there are zeroes. You use the numbers on the remote to do this.

Turn the TV off with the built in power button.

Unplug the TV for 10 seconds.

Plug the TV back in, turn it back on.

If this does not solve your problem, reset the values of the options in the service menu to the values you wrote down earlier because you have a different problem than what this fix works for.
