In order to hook up a new DVD player, we can't get the RCA F27636BC 27" TV to change to TV/Video input and get anything incoming. I don't see this anwhere in the Menu selections and when I use the DishNetwork TV/Video input button, nothing happens.

Re: I can't select TV/Video input on the menu
If you have the original remote (RCA Universal with red and blue buttons), you can switch from the TV tuner to the audio/video input with the INPUT button. It is to the left of zero on the numeric keypad, above the red CLEAR button.
Press it again to get back to the TV tuner.

Press menu on your remote. Press "4" for channel and "4" for video input source. In this menu, you can toggle between s-video and regular video (yellow plug) input. The disadvantage is, if you're like me and you've got a DVD player and and VCR (or maybe a video game system) all hooked up to the same TV, you've got to go through the menu and switch the inputs to watch something else. I'm happy with my digital audio cable; I'll deal with yellow-plug video.
There are a few possible reasons, the first being that the tube has burned out inside the TV. But before jumping to that conclusion I would check to make sure that your A/V cables are connected properly (video being the yellow cable, or if you may be using S-video which is a black cable that has 4 steel pins and 1 horizontal black plastic or metal one) and make sure that you have the cables plugged into the same numbered input: ie. Audio is in audio 1 and video is in video 1 rather than audio being in audio 1 and video being in video 2.
Also be sure that you've selected the right input from the remote or from the television itself.
does the dvd have a coax output for coax antenna input on the tv? you can use that untill you can get the video input selection straight with the tv and a remote that supports rca's extra functions such as menu , tv/av button
also if there is a( wake-up) on/off timer in the tv menu , then you can also set it to come on with the video input instead of a tv station,set it a few minutes after the time it is when you set it( then just turn off the tv set after the time is set and you have exited the menu, then it will come on with the video input instead of a tv station)
otherwise you will need that remote that supports the video input selection on your tv
can you tell me if your using Composite (Which is the yellow RCA style Connector), S-Video (which is usually a single black connector), or component (which is Red/Blue/Green).
You may need to go in the menu options on your tv for the appropriate video input. Select S-video if necessary for video input on that channel. If that is not the case you may need to reverse that and select in the dvd players menu S-video. Im assuming that its S-video by the tv.
But if you don't have any video then you are unable to view the menu. So in that case what we need to do is. If it has Composite and you are not using it. what you need to do is hook up the Composite yellow plug into the corresponding jack. Then see if you can get video. Once you have video you can then select in the menu of your dvd player what output source to use. In your case this will be S-video.
If you can give me the dvd player make and model. I can give you the exact step by step. This is just a general FAQ for the information I have. -Thanks Nate
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).
removed cable at the back of your TV insert any pin metal material like paperlip without the plastic cover and search local channels from 1-13,, if it does,, contact your cable provider.. it may had cable line problems.
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.
