Question about Televison & Video
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.

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.

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
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

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.
