Is the remote control the one that came with the set or is it a universal? If the remote came with the tv, it may have a bad internal rubber pad board ( not fixable ), if it's a universal remote, you may need to change the code of add the codes for the dvd. The dvd and the tv work internally on seperate codes. I hope this has helped

Cant find auxillary channel

You will need a connection to an aux,a VCR, DVD etc. The TV will recognize and display. You may need an original RCA TV remote with an aux button. RCA universal remotes will also sometimes have this. Or in this case press your remote button to 00. Sometimes this will work, or press channel search while playing an aux device, Thanks for listening, Sincerely, Matt.

How can i hook up an external dvd player to this tv? i followed the dvd player instructions but i cant get it to play...i can only hear the sound

On the front you have a yellow white and red port. Use the RCA cables from your DVD player to the front of this T.V. Change the T.V. input probably with the remote or just the channel buttons. If this doesn't work, use different RCA cables because the one's you're using may be bad.

I have a rca dvd recorder+vcr combo drc8320n i want to set up watching/changing cabletv channels on the dvd remote. i have tried buying universal remotes cheap& expensive but they no longer work on my

With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!

Unable to get remote to switch to tv/video RCA remote tv is sanyo

It took me forever to figure it out. Press the input key, just below the 9. The TV channel should be on 3. Make sure you put your DVD in and press play manually, so you can see that it is on.

Hope that helps

RCA Colortrak Stereo Monitor won't play DVD/Nintendo

The way you describe having your TV/DVD connected you wont see the picture in the regular channel line-up.
You will have to tell the TV to to switch to the video input. This is usually done by navigating the menu to the "input" and selecting video 1, video 2 etc
Failing that try changing to channel 00 ( just type 00 in remote)
Some sets will allow you to type in 02 and then hit the channel down button on the remote.

If you have the user manual it will give you the exact steps you need to take.

Cant see dvds on my emerson tv


In many cases by connecting the DVD via a scart cable (depending in what country you live in if your system supports it)
the dvd will send a signal to the TV to switch over to RGB mode when you start playing the dvd. Rember to make sure the scart connectors are firmly pressed into their sockets on both tv and dvd.

Also if you found out how to switch channels directly on the TV try to go through them might find the AV channel that will show the picture from your dvd.

Hope this will help you.

Good Luck.

Cannot get DVD to Play on TV

Try the old RCA/GE channels of 90/91 or 92 to get to the inputs. Or try entering channel 00. Let me know if that works.
