RCA Colortrack TV can't connect to a DVD

Our Tv works well but we have a combination VCR and DVD connected to it and all of a sudden the DVD quit working. VCR still works well.

The purchased another DVD and it doesn't work connected with the old VCR or just connecting the DVD directly to the TV. It is like the DVD hookup is blocked or turned off. Is that possible or do you have any idea why we can't have both a VCR and a DVD or even a DVD alone work on this TV.

The new DVD that we are trying is a RCA DRC190N and the screen just displays the word root. I believe our problem is a TV problem not a DVD problem.

Thanks

SOURCE: RCA TV - Trying to hookup new dvd/vcr player to old tv with only antenna input

The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.

Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.

SOURCE: Can't get my DVD player to work...

Your GE TV most likely doesn't have anything but a antenna input on it? If that the case to connect a DVD player you must purchase a RF modulator to convert the video and audio output of a DVD player to a channel 3 or 4 output. Here is a link for one at Radio Shack.

SOURCE: Grundig TV - Tuning DVD & VCR

Hi there!
If the DVD recorder has an RF out then you should be able to tune it on UHF bandwidth. The cable should run from the RF Out on the recorder to RF on the TV. Switch the recorder on, put in a DVD and press play before tuning. Some DVD's require a disc before a Menu appears. Good Luck, Regards, JUS004

SOURCE: Suddenly, "No Signal" display when cable box/VCR Connected to UHF/VHF Jack

How long have you owned the tv? You have two options though your best bet is to locate your nearest authorized service center to have the tv repaired.
Thanks,

Will a dvd player work with a Panasonic PV-M2023 combo TV VCR, built in 1993? We connected a DVD player but haven't been able to get it to work. We have the original remote control.


I see that it does have RCA input (Yellow, white, red) on the reverse of the TV. Connect the DVD via RCA cable to the corresponding color connection, place the TV in "Vido" or "aux" mode. this is usually done on the remote from an "input" button, or it can also be called "game," "video," or "aux."
Upon putting it to this after connection of the DVD player, you should see the DVD players home screen. You should be set to enjoy the DVD player.

Trying to connect vcr/dvd to tv. Do not have


you need to have your basic rca cables (yellow, red and white). The cables you are referring to are composite cables and if you do not have component inputs on your tv they will be useless. You can use rca cables on any tv that has video.

Have directv what are the connections i need


You should be able to connect direct tv OUT yellow red and white to the IN yellow red and white on your DVD player/VCR combination. Then you connect OUT on your DVD player/VCR combination to the av video input of your television. By yellow red and white I am reffering to composite/RCA cables. There might be a way to connect with component cables though. I would need more information.

Samsung CXD2512 TV/VCR Combo...Cannot hook up DVD player


We also don't have a remote. We hooked a DVD/VCR combo to the Samsung combo by attaching the cable from the cable line to the DVD player and an additional cable from DVD to TV and it used to work but after we lost the control, the DVD can only be listened to but not seen. The VHS from the DVD player works perfectly though.

When we had the remote (before connecting the other combo) we used line-in to see a DVD or VHS using the yellow red and white cables from the Samsung to the other player.
