I can't get my DVD to play on my GE 25GT240 25" TV

I have a RF modulator hooked up to my DVD player. The problem is that I need to change the input to video and I don't know how to do this. With other DVD players, once I turned on the DVD, the TV auto switched over to the DVD but with my new DVD, this isn't the case. How do I switch my input to play the DVD?

Re: I can't get my DVD to play on my GE 25GT240 25" TV

I'm not sure, but, if you use the channel down button on the television (below channel 2), the set may go to the video inputs. If not a local retailer should have an inexpensive universal remote that would work on this set and have an input or tv/video button. If you use a cable box, the remote can be programed also. If you need more help, reply to this post and I can come up with more solutions when I get to my shop next

Can i hook up a dvd player to it and if so what cord do i need?

Standard DVD players cannot be connected to this TV because it does not have an AV input. It has only RF input. So you will have to buy an AV to RF Modulator (converter) to connect a DVD player.

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.

No video audio connecters

If you have a VCR with RCA inputs and coax (cable) output to TV, try plugging the DVD players RCA outputs (L/R audio, composite video) to VCR RCA inputs. Then select the DVD input on the VCR and it shoud play just as a the VCR does. If you don't have a VCR, an RF modulator might be needed, but a VCR would probably be cheaper.

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$

No jacks in the back


This is a very basic TV with only a single ANT/CABLE/RF INput. If you intend to use a DVD player whose outputs are the yellow, red & white RCA, then you would need either:
1. an RF modulator similar to this one or
2. use an old VCR to accept the yellow, red & white RCA cables as INputs. The VCR would then have to be connected to the ANT/CABLE/RF INput using an RF patch cord. The TV wold then have to be tuned to either Channel 3 or 4.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

RCA TV - Trying to hookup new dvd/vcr player to old tv with only antenna input

The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.

Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.
