I have acquired an older DVD player but my TV pretty old too. It only has one coax input but has all the AV inputs. When I tried hooking it up, nothing happenened. Do I need an RF regulator and how does this all hook up.
Also my 20 year old VCR just stopped working. When it is plugged in, the LED readout on the front doesn't come on at all. Maybe there is a blown fuse? I assume it would cost more to fix this than buy a new unit or a VHS/DVD combo.

Re: Old TV and old DVD player
Make sure your TV is "tuned" to the proper input. To change the input, change the TVs channel below 02, find the "input" dialoge on the tv's menu, or press the "input" or "video" button on the TV or Remote.
Repairing a 20 year old VCR (By chance a BetaMax?) is not worth your time. Replace it with a $60 DVD/VHS combo unit.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

what inputs does the old Daewood / VCR combo use is it RCA and Video cable on an AV input? How many Av inputs are there in TV ? Does the DVD player have AV out audio out (Yellow) RCA (Red and White). If you do not have enough AV inputs on the Tv use an AV switch box . and Switch two AV RCA inputs /DVD and VCR and into one output to the TV. You may be able to feed the AV out RCA out into the VCR AV in and switch the input on the VCR.
I can assume the input for your tv has only a coax input to it. Meaning a threaded connector on the back. If so, first connect the Wii to the input of the dvd player, second, from the output of the dvd player, this is where your solution is needed. run a coax cable from the tv to the DVD player and at the dvd player you will need an adapter from your local Radio Shack or electronics store. It should be a female coax to RCA adapter (male Red White and Yellow).Red and white for audio and yellow for video. Post a pic of the back of the tv if this doesnt solve it for you. Good luck, fingers crossed.
Are you using an AV cord between your VCR and TV or a standard coax? If you are using a standard coax then first make sure the tape is functioning properly. Next try a new coax and if the problem persist there might be an issue with the coax output/input on the VCR or TV itself.
If you are using the AV inputs (red,white and yellow) you want to remember that the red and white are for audio and the yellow is for video. So in this case you want to
Make sure the tape is functioning correct. Old tapes that have seen their better days will produce audio but no video and vice versa.
Check the connection of your yellow AV input (audio). Make sure it goes from the same output on your VCR to the same input on your TV as the audio cords are running to.
If this checks out then try a different audio cord and see if this fixes it.
If not then try using a different output on the VCR and input on the TV all together.
At this point it is possible one of the AV audio jacks are bad either on the VCR or on the TV.
IM GUESSING THIS MIGHT BE AN RCA TELEVISION? if you dont have an rca in hook up on the tv give up and buy a new tv or you can find an older item what it is is a switch that has an rca input and a coax output it was used to hook up the older video game systems it is still sold in most stores and that will work if you do have rca inputs and lost the remote you need to get a universal remote to switch the input on certain older rca tv's you could go to channel 00 and it would set it to the input with the switch you shoudl be able to use it by putting the tv on channel 3
hey 1st of all you gotta make sure that your son made tha right connections with the av cable (this is the cable with three different coloured pins) from your DVD to your tv. if this doesnt solve your problem then make sure you are using the correct av channel on your tv set that will allow you 2 play your DVD player because sometimes you cant play your DVD on thhe same av cannel you watch normal tv
Does your VHS have av jacks on it?
If so, connect the av jacks (red, yellow, white) from the output of the VCR to the input of the DVD and then from the output of the DVD to the input on the TV.
This will only work if you have input on the DVD. Recordable DVD players do, but a lot of the older ones don't.
