Can't find a channel to watch a DVD pre-recorded DVD

I have an inexpensive Symphonic TV (WF206) and a used Samsung DVD player. I have the cables hooked up but can't find a channel on the TV to watch a DVD. I hooked up the wall cable to the DVD then hooked up a cable from the DVD output to the TV. My TV will go over 100 channels with the remote but I still can't find a channel to watch a pre-recorded movie. The TV in the the main room has AUX1 and AUX 2 channels but I can't find those. We have Time Warner Cable. I'm wondering if my TV just isn't cable of finding the channel for the dvd player.

Re: Can't find a channel to watch a DVD pre-recorded DVD

You should have a input select button on your remote. video 1 should be the front and video 2 should be the back. i had to buy 3 or 4 different universal remotes when mine messed up just to get the one button to change to change it to the inputs because there is no other way to change it to that with he buttons on the tv. kinda surprised that you didn't try and push that button yet.

I cant select games mode manually on the symphonic

I think, after you have the rca jacks inserted into the tv and to the game you're playing, youshould be able to move the channel button down past channels 3 and 2. And or hit menu on the tv and look for setup. Try that!

No picture on tv

Have to select antenna, video is for when you use a vcr or DVD input. Otherwise Video means you are using another source to dump into your set that you want to watch froma pre recorded source.

Can't watch dvd

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever then the only way to reach your tv is through coaxial antenna port. So you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellow and white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from:
