Question about Televison & Video
The green RCA port has a red and a blue RCA port nearby, so you are connected to a component video port. Your TV can't interpret the composite video feed because it is looking for the other two parts of the video signal.
Some Elements TVs only have one composite TV input. Look at your DVD player and check if it has a component video output or perhaps an HDMI output. If it does, get the appropriate video cable and switch it over to a different input on the TV. Then connect the Smart Cycle to the composite video input on the TV. If you need to get a cable, try an online store that specializes in cables. Monoprice.com is a good source and their prices are much lower than the big box electronics stores.
The other options you can use:
1) If you have a DVD recorder, plug the Smart Cycle composite video cable into the (or one of the) DVD's line in ports. Then set the DVD to the appropriate line in and the TV to the composite input when your child wants to use the Smart Cycle.
2) Get a composite video switch or a signal converter (like a composite to RF converter). Then connect the devices as needed to the switch or converter and then to appropriate ports on the TV.
(For the switch, you would connect both the DVD player and the Smart Cycle to the switch and then the switch output to the composite video port on the TV. For an example switch, see http://www.walmart.com/ip/SIIG-4-x-1-Composite-Video-and-Audio-Switch/16606752 . This model will let you switch between 4 composite video devices.)
I hope this helps.
