If you have connected the audio video out of DVD to audio video in to the TVs front panel; what else to do?. Power up both the devices, goto the menu option of your tV, set it to vidieo mode, open the tray of the DVD by it open-close button, put a dvd disc in, push open close button of the DVD again, take the remote control of the DVD; select the chapter you want to see, sit back easy and see the recordings on the disc. That is all. OK.
You would use the Sylvania remote. It will either have a TV/Vid button or an input button. The screen will display "Video" or "Line". You can also do this from the front of the set by pressing "CH-" it will go "3", "2", "Video"
If the TV doesn't have AV input jacks, you'll need an RF converter so you can watch the DVD player on channel 3 or 4. You can find them at Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, Home Depot and most places that sell TVs for around $15. Connect the audio and video from the DVD player to the inputs on the converter, and the converter's output to the TV antenna jack. Set the TV to whichever channel the converter is set for (3 or 4, with a switch on the converter so you can choose) and you'll be in business.
If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
when you say nothing do you mean the tv wont come on? If the tv is on can you see the words (input, volume bar, menus, etc.) do you hear audio? does the player work on another tv, since you have a sylvania tv, are you using the game button on the top of the remote to switch to the jacks on the front? Good luck :0)
