My Tv is a 13" magnavox Sdtv with a built in Dvd player. The back of the tv has the rca port and the antennae port. In front you have the audio/video ports (yellow and white)I tried putting the tv on channel 3 and nothing. I use the "Select" button to change from Dvd player to other things. None of them work. I cannot get the video game picture to show up on the screen. Not sure what to do. Is it because this is a small tv with a built in Dvd player. Do I need one without the built in player. Help

SOURCE: Why won't my TV pick read my portable DVD player?

probably you need to change your input setting using the menu in your tv. use your remote control in finding that menu. good luck!

SOURCE: Video Input

Are you sure that the source is generating a video signal? It is extremely rare for both front and rear Video Input sockets to fail simultaneoisly. from your description, i would suspect the cable connecting the Viseo out of your DVD player / Video Game than the Video Input ports of the TV. If you have another cable, just try again with that. Or, try using the Red to red cable into the Yellow port, using one end at the DVD player and the other at the TV Video Input. If there is image, then it is confirmed that the cable is faulty, and you can get a replacement cable for a few bucks at any Video store.

SOURCE: connect magnavox dvd to ge tv HELP!

You need to go get an RF modulator. They can be purchased at Radio Shack or a number of other electronic shoppes for a reasonable price.

The RF modulator connects to the coax cable connector and it has inputs for the RCA connectors.

Cheers ... Best wishes

How to connect the atari 2600 to a hdtv


Well I think that you need the lastest updated rf switch for an atari 2600 console and plug it into either a VCR or a DVD player then for it to work on this tv type.
4 STARS if this Solution is helpful.

My atari 2600 4 switch was working yesterday but today somethings wrong.... i'm guessing it's the RF unit 'cause it still powers on. any other suggestions


Well it might be the rf switch so you should buy a new rf box for it then. If its plugged into a digital tv it won't work unless you plug it into a vcr or a dvd player.

I just bought a new atari flashback 2. I have a VCR/DVD hooked up to my TV.. Do I need to hook the atari up to the back of the VCR/DVD or can I plug it directly into my TV.. The TV is new. Problem is, I...


You should be able to plug the Atari directly into the TV (If you have proper inputs available on your TV (you have not told us what make & model your TV is). BUT you can hook it up through your DVD/VCR if you want to. If you hook your Atari to your DVD/VCR you will have to power up the DVD/VCR whenever you want to play your games. The cool thing about running it through your DVD/VCR is that you can record toy game to prove to your friends what you have achieved.

Bought an atari 2600 and an adaptor for my tv still no picture. also it turned my tv to blk and white. where should i start?


If you are using a digital tv you need the lastest up dated rf switch for atari2600
and plug it into a VCR or A DVD player and it will work that way but if its on a CRT tv style just use the rf switch then no special set ups on CRT style tvs.

When i turn my atari 2600 on no games play?


The Atari 2600 was finicky even at the time (early 1980s). Just unplug it completely. Plug back in and power back on. Use the reset switch if need be. Good luck and have fun!

ARTARI 2600 HOOK-UP INFO?


yeah its the right thing. Hook the RF Modulator to the cable connector on the back of your TV. (the one with the threads) and hook the cable from your Atari (its a AV cable) to the RF Modulator. set the little swithch on your Atari to chanel 3 or 4, then set your TV the the same channel and enjoy your Retro Gaming goodness (I Love My Atari 2600)
