What is the channel I put the TV on to play my DVD?

Your dvd should have an RCA output, no coax. Therefore you can't use it like the vcr putting it on channel 3. You have a yellow, red, white input on the tv. You have to change the source/input on the tv to the corresponding input. Input 1, input 2, etc. If you need more help, I will be monitoring this for the rest of the evening.

VCR/DVD prongs broken off in TV

unplug the tv then try to drill a real small hole in the broken off part of the cable that is inthe tv, then take a sharp pointed screw and try to thread it into the hole that you drilled if able to get it started then pull out on the screw to see if it will come out. If not able to do it this way you will have to take the back off and some of and see if you can push the broken part out from the inside. Be sure to unplug your tv from (AC) so you dont get hurt. If that dont work then u probley willhave to take to a shop to get fixed.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, the easiest connection method would be to use a short RF patchcord to connect the RF out of the DVD/VCR to the ANT/CABLE/RF IN of the TV. Set the TV to Channel 3. To continue able to receive ant/cable channels, the cable input should go to the ANT/CABLE/RF IN of the VCR/DVD.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

T.V. shuts off when I try to play a DVD in the built-in player

Try putting in a VCR tape let it load and hit stop. If the set stays on it's the VCR deck causing the problem. It will be either be bad sensors or LED or possibly the mode switch. Let me know if this helps.

Just want the Orion TV (Model: STV 2763) to play VHS videos

Problem Solved:

Take your connector with the 3 colors red,white & yellow and plug into VCR OUT. The other end (w/ 3 plugs) goes into the INPUT on the back of the TV. Next insert a VHS Tape & search the TV for input or a channel below #2 for Cable#1,2,3 or AUV Channel.

In this case; Channel AUX #1
Shows / Plays Video w/ clear sound & picture.

Watching DVD or VHS ...

I could not find the manual for your TV, but I did find one for model number 27N-S50 so hopefully they're very similar. If you DVD/VCR is connected to your TV with composite cables (the RED, WHITE, YELLOW cable set) then you need to change the input mode. There should be a button labeled Input on your remote and pressing it will cycle between the various inputs (Cable, Input1, Input2). I would guess your DVD/VCR is connected to Input 1. If you have lost the remote you should be able to get to the other inputs by using the channel selector button. Tune the TV to either the highest or lowest channel in memory and then press either the CH UP or CH DOWN button on the TV to cycle through the various inputs.

The other thing you should know is that there is a recall on this TV related to the power button. I discovered this while looking for the manual on the Sharp website. Go to this website:,2309,,00.html

Type 27R-S50 in the model box and select Television/Home Theater Projectors in the Product box then click on Get Results and you'll get information on the recall.

Also, if the info I've given about how to select the input does not work, there are links on the above site to help you get the correct manual.

Lastly, I don't get paid for this. I know it's a strange hobby, but I like to help out when I can. I hope you'll take a moment and give a prositive rating if this information has been helpful to you. Nearly half of the solutions I've posted have never been rated. Thanks and good luck.

Magnavox combo vcr dvd

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

You got the right idea,use the ext.imput on you tv and use the vcr to change the channels,you can check the solder conections in the tuner ,ussually the ground gets loose after a while but if you are not too familiar with tv service and dont want put any money in this set use your vcr.If the quality of the picture is still good then is worth keeping it.Let Us know if you need more information.

TV - DVD Interference Problem

Do you have any other DVDs to try? there is a copy guard put on dvds called "macro vision" maybe this is the problem. Usualy you will notice this when you try and run the dvd threw a VCR not threw the TV. If you are running it threw the VCR by mistake then try direct threw the tv. This is to keep piracy down.
