Re: Connecting dvd player to zenith sy2551s system and...

Yes, You need to be on AUX ,you can get to that setting by pressing channel 01 then press the channels down button instead of going to channel zero it will start to cycle through your AUX's inputs on the back of the tv.Also, another way to do this is on the original remote there will be a SOURCE button or INPUT button that can also cycle your TV through the aux inputs.REMEMBER.Make sure your DVD player is turned on and hooked up or else the AUX screen will be black.Rate me when you fix it!GOOD LUCK

How to get off blue screen

Check the TV by connecting it to an external antenna. If it works well with external antenna, check the input selection done after connecting the DVD player. Check whether Power to the DVD player is pluged in and it has been switched ON.

I cant find the av jacks to hook up my dvd player

This model doesn't have any A/V jacks. Many low-end RCA models didn't include any special features. They can only pick up signals over the antenna input. What you'll need to connect your DVD player is an RF converter, which takes the audio and video signals from the player and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 TV signal that the set can pick up.

RF converters aren't hard to find. Radio Shack, Sears and Wal-Mart all say they sell them, and you can certainly find them online. Hooking one up is just a matter of connecting the necessary cable to the player and TV, connecting the converter power and setting the output channel. Then put the TV on that channel and you're set. Unfortunately, this will give you lower picture and sound quality than you get from a TV that allows direct A/V inputs, but it's the only option.

Just trying to hook up a new DVD player to my 1998 Zenith TV?

Connect your video source [cable, satellite, etc] to your dvd and connect your dvd to your tv. Get back if you still have a problem.

Cant get dvd to operate

Have you changed the TV input to AUX? If there is a VCR hooked up with your satellite box it has to be on Line or Aux too. Make sure these are in place before trying the DVD player

Hooking up a convertor , when i have a vcr, dvd player

You can hook it up through the antennae system. Keep your dvr connected to the tv the way you had it. Hook up your TV rabbit ears antennae to the converter box in the connection on the left side of the box. Then hook up the antennae lead from the converter box to your TV on the right side connector. The only thing I'm wondering is, do you get stereo sound this way and does anyone know how to get it without hooking up the separate audio and video plugs? There aren't enough connections on the tv to hook up both sets.

Hooking up a dvd player

as you say that it is old tv so there is a possibility that there may not be audio video socket where dcd player can be connected. OR You will have to purchase one video RF converter.RF converter contains one video input in yellow color & two audio input in red & white colour & one cable connector as output. Connect the dvd output to this converter & tune tv program in which place you receive dvd signal.

Hooking up a cd player

I'm assuming you mean a DVD player, not a CD player? 1. You can get an input splitter (basically an A/B switch for the cable), and connect to that, manually switching between the two sources. 2. You can replace the VCR and the DVD player with a combination DVD/VHS unit. Although it would seem logical, it is unlikely that you can hook the DVD player to the VCR, since the VCR will refuse to let the signal pass though it, as part of its MacroVision copy protection. (This is the same sytem that prevents you from recording DVDs onto VHS tapes.)
