I've had the signal working so the actual hookup is probably right, I mean with the red white yellow connections, but I can't remember how to get the TV set to use the signal. The store guy said use remote and press aux several times and it will look for the new device and get going. But that didn't happen

There are generally 2 ways to connect a dvd player to a tv.1 If you have 3 rca connectors on the back of your tv (they are color coded yellow for video and white and red for audio left and right channels respectively) and the same connectors on the back or side of the dvd player.Use rca cables to connect the dvd player to the tv,connecting yellow to yellow white to white and red to red.Using the remote put your tv on video.Put the channel selector on the dvd/vcr player on video or L1 or E1 (depending on what brand dvd/vcr you have).2 connect a rf (coaxial cable from the rf output of the dvd/vcr and connect this directly to the rf (antenna) input to your tv.Put the tv on channel 3.Play the dvd/vcr to see if you have the video.If not put the tv on channel 4.Some dvd/vcr's put their signals out on channel 3 and others on channel 4.Good luck.
the back of dvd is easy because it only has outputs with color code, the inputs and outputs on the back of the tv are grouped if you look closely on the back. select video 1 as an input on tv, and start with the far left yellow jacks on the back of tv, connect yellow rca cable and check for pic on tv, if not move to next yellow jack on back of tv, until you get a pic, connect the red and white right below the yellow jack that gave you the picture and you should also have sound
You can usually use some pliers to squeeze the outside of the RCA connector (when it is disconnected from your TV) to give it a tighter fit BUT, few things to keep in mind,
All cables are not equal, a higher quality RCA cables may give improved results. I wouldn't bother with gigantic gold plated $50 cables or anything like that, just a bit thicker gauge wire a better connectors than what comes with a DVD player.
Using the "red/white/yellow" connections as you stated is what is called Composite Video. The white/red is left/right audio, while the yellow is the video signal. A better picture will be had if you use a higher quality signal such as the Component Video (red/green/blue connectors) out (if your TV is supported, or of coarse HDMI)
You get the red, yellow and white, then you connect the red to the audio out of the player and connect it to the audio in of the television, then you connect the yellow prong to the video out of the player and connect it to the video in of the television, then you leave the white free.
Put your television on AV mode and you will be able to view movies from the DVD player on the television.
If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!
good day, if youre saying that you program the DVD to work on channel 2 or 4 does it mean you convert the signal of your dvd player from A/V output to RF out?
because the simpliest way to connect your DVD player to TV screen is by using RCA cable ( 3 wired cable being color marked as yellow/red/white) yellow = video red and white = audio
the connection would be: from dvd back part you'll see colored socket yello/red and white. connect the RCA to those socket following the same color .
and from the TV screen there should be A/V input socket. can be locate at the BACK/Side or FRONT of the screen marked as "INPUT" ( AV1, AV2,AV3 if multiple inputs). Then select which input you want to place your DVD player ex.AV1 (from AV1 there will be 3 scoket in a row, yellow/red/white)
Connect the other end of your RCA cable following the same color code to TV "AV1 INPUT" yellow = yello/red =red/white=white. then from the remote commander of your TV screen locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "A/V" press this button until the screen display switch to AV1.
Your problem is that your TV has no video inputs. TVs use those red white and yellow plugs to transmit the signal via those cables. By cable box - do you mean a digital box? You can't run it through that unforunately - those connections are only for the box itself and it only has an output.
You'll have to go either: Buy a new TV or get an RCA Modulator.
You have an older monaural set. Most sets are stereo. The red and white cables are for left and right. There really is no "converter" other than to get an RF converter to run your DVD through channel 3 or 4.
Since it has voice or sound then I don't suspect the tuner but probably the tuner does not have the 33 volts that goes through r106 location number on the board. It is a 27K resistor and can be bought for about a dollar at Radio Shack. (pack of 2or3) A repairman or someone experienced in electronic soldering and desoldering can change it easily. Could cost around $50 to repair depending on the serviceman. If it has rca jacks (red, white and yellow) The tuner can be bypassed if you have a cable box that passed these signals: audio left and right and video. Hope this helps
