Hello Boye4522,

If you connect your Dvd player up via a scart lead directly to the back of your Tv when you turn on the DVD player this will send a voltage to the tv telling it to change to the input that your Dvd player is on.

Job done.

Cheers Little Dish Fitter.

My input button will not bring up the selection of options it should bring up.I cannot play any dvds without using the opton button on my remote. what am i doing wrong?


First of all, is this the first time experiencing this problem? Second, which remote are you referring to that has the 'input button', the TV's or DVD?

You also make reference to an, 'input button, and then an, 'opton button'? What is the difference between them?

In my situation, my TV's remote is used to toggle back and forth between an external source (i.e, DVD or VHS players), and regular TV.

MY TV remote has a 'TV/VIDEO' button, which when pressed allows me to display either 'video-1, video-2, or back to watching TV programs. In my experience, it has always been either a 'source or TV/Video button located on the TV remote that controls all external sources being viewed on the TV.

Also, a simple thought, are the batteries starting to fail. I have noticed that pressing remote buttons and not having something occur right away could be the batteries.

MXT LCD1501D without remote


Not sure if this is helpful at all, but according to this youtube video, this unit never had a remote. It uses a 9-pin game controller. Not sure if this is only for playing games, or if it's used for programming the unit as well.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crqMoog_Eiw&feature=youtu.be&t=44s

Looking at a closeup of the control buttons at the 36 second mark of the video, there does not appear to be any button that can be used as an "ok" button.

The back of the unit has a number of audio/video outputs, and 2 game ports.

The type of disk you put in the unit should determine whether it is recognized as a DVD or as a game disk.

As the author of the youtube video mentions, these were very inexpensive units (he got his for $30).

You may want to consider getting a major brand DVD player that includes a remote like the Sony DVP-SR210P which can be found on eBay for under $30, as well.

How to play dvd


If you are using the built-in DVD tray, press TV (in case you have a Cable Set-top box). Then press Input and navigate with the up/down keys to the line labeled DVD. Then press OK. Finally press play on the Polaroid TDA-03211C remote or on the side of the TV. The remote play button is in the center of the row below the row with skip reverse and skip forward buttons.

If you are using a different DVD player, press the input button and then the up/down arrows to get to the input for your DVD player. Then press the DVD button to control the DVD player.

If you are using a universal remote control, then you may need to program it to the TV and the DVD player separately. (Some universal remotes may only support the TV functions of this TV.) Make sure that your universal remote has an input button that works. You may need to try multiple codes for Polaroid TVs.

I hope this helps.

(note: the DVD must be correctly installed so that the printed side (label) is facing the front of the TV. If you do not get a response, try the disc in another DVD player. The DVD player laser tracking can fail without warning. If the disc plays in other units, this may be the problem.)

Remote control


Harmony makes a really good universal remote that plugs into your computer. You enter the make/model # of your equipment and all (or most) of the equipments features are available on the remote. I use 1 remote for 7 components and it has an activity button that when pressed will turn on all components associated with that activity IE "Watch DVD" will turn on DVD player, T.V. and set it to proper channel or input and turn on the stereo and set it to the proper output.

My remote control has broken.


I would check out the Harmony 510 remote control. It may be a little pricey but it is the best universal remote on the market for the money. It also allows you to control your DVD unit as well as your TV without the requirement of selecting which one. Harmony remotes are activity based in the you pick what you want to do such as “Watch TV”, “Watch DVD” , “Watch VCR” etc.. Then It turns the appropriate units on and then sets them to the correct input. Makes it real easy once set up. Another advantage is the IR codes are stored on line and constantly updated so new products and codes can be added.

Auxillary channel for dvd


You need to determine what output options your DVD player has. Take a look at the rear of the player. It will certainly have RCA jacks for video and audio outputs (yellow for video, red and white for right and left channel audio). It may also have RCA jacks for component video (marked Y, Pb and Pr). Finally, it may have a threaded connector marked "out to TV" or "antenna out" or something similar. This is called RF output.

Most players today don't offer RF output because nearly every TV has direct AV inputs available. If your DVD player has RF output, connect the output connector to the TVs antenna input. You need a coaxial cable with F-connectors on the ends. One may have been supplied with the player. RF output is on channel 3 or 4, set by a switch on the back of the player or by its on-screen setup. Just set the TV to that channel to watch a DVD.

If your player doesn't have RF output, you connect it to the TV using the AV jacks. You need cables with RCA plugs to to connect the video and audio from the player to the TV. Then you switch the TV to its video input to watch the DVD.

This is where you might run into problems. Many TVs need the original remote control to switch inputs. (Some older RCA sets used channels 90, 91 and 92 to switch to their video inputs so any remote would work, but these sets were made before 125-channel tuning became standard. If your set is one of those models, those are the auxiliary channels you heard about.) If you can't switch the set to video input with front panel buttons and you don't have the right remote, you're not completely out of luck.

If you can't use your set's AV inputs or it just doesn't have any, you need an RF converter. These cost around $15. They take the audio and video from the DVD player and convert it to channel 3 or 4. Then you hook that output to your TV as described above.
