I normally use the input button on the remote to switch over to my dvd player that is plugged into it.. For some reason now, when i hit the input button, it does not switch over. It only flashes up on the screen a blue vchip lock and cc box. (icon like). the display button does this same thing. how do i get my input button back to functioning normally?? thanks.

To display signal from that input you will need to change the input on the tv. This can be done either on the front of the tv, or by using your remote control. First power on and connect the desired source. Next on the tv or on your remote, press a button labeled either source or tv /video and scroll through by continuously pressing until you see the source you connected appear on the tv display.
If your tv has input [rca connections] jacks, look at the original remote and use the input button.In some cases....pressing 00 on the remote will access an input. If you must a converter box...set your tv and the DVD player to channel 3.
You need to determine what output options your DVD player has. Take a look at the rear of the player. It will certainly have RCA jacks for video and audio outputs (yellow for video, red and white for right and left channel audio). It may also have RCA jacks for component video (marked Y, Pb and Pr). Finally, it may have a threaded connector marked "out to TV" or "antenna out" or something similar. This is called RF output.
Most players today don't offer RF output because nearly every TV has direct AV inputs available. If your DVD player has RF output, connect the output connector to the TVs antenna input. You need a coaxial cable with F-connectors on the ends. One may have been supplied with the player. RF output is on channel 3 or 4, set by a switch on the back of the player or by its on-screen setup. Just set the TV to that channel to watch a DVD.
If your player doesn't have RF output, you connect it to the TV using the AV jacks. You need cables with RCA plugs to to connect the video and audio from the player to the TV. Then you switch the TV to its video input to watch the DVD.
This is where you might run into problems. Many TVs need the original remote control to switch inputs. (Some older RCA sets used channels 90, 91 and 92 to switch to their video inputs so any remote would work, but these sets were made before 125-channel tuning became standard. If your set is one of those models, those are the auxiliary channels you heard about.) If you can't switch the set to video input with front panel buttons and you don't have the right remote, you're not completely out of luck.
If you can't use your set's AV inputs or it just doesn't have any, you need an RF converter. These cost around $15. They take the audio and video from the DVD player and convert it to channel 3 or 4. Then you hook that output to your TV as described above.
use the color coded wires that were supplied with the DVD player plug them into the inputs on your rca tv then use you remote and there should be a button that says input i know my rca tv does. Then you push this button and it lets the tv use the input plugs.If there is more than one plug in on your tv push the button till you see your DVD players on screen menu. God Bless Greg
On either the front of the TV or a universal remote (which I assume you have already programmed) hit the MENU button. Go to option 4 "Channel". Go down to "List and Labels." Hit the CH up or down key until you see "FRNT" come up under the channel # heading. If your DVD is connected and playing, you'll see it playing now. Exit the menu to watch. You'll have to reverse the process to get back to watching TV, but there doesn't seem to be any way around this if you don't have your RCA remote. This process is guaranteed to work on an F27442 and will probably work on some other RCA models.
