Your DVD /VCR has RCA (phono) connectors for the outputs. Check your TV has the same for the inputs. If it has buy a three way RCA lead from eBay.

You just need an RCA cable. Find the output from your dvd and connect to the input of your tv. The cable has three connectors in three Res and white is audio and yellow is the video.

RCA DRC247N DVD Player No Audio

The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work

No colour

Hopefully you've already sorted this problem out, but here's my answer.

If using component video connections, you need to be careful to connect all three plugs correctly at both ends, as well as the two audio channels. That's five RCA connectors at each end.

Sounds like you have only connected the Y signal between the TV and DVD, and have missed the other two (PbCb, PrCr) which carry the colour information.

Popping sound and nothing works

You could have a power issue, or any number of issues with some of your chip boards. As the inside of TV's store a lethal amount of electricity I would strongly advise you get the tv checked by an RCA repairman. It may end up costing you more money to fix the issue than repair it. Ask the tech to give you an estimate before any repairs take place.

Connect magnavox dvd to ge tv HELP!

You need to go get an RF modulator. They can be purchased at Radio Shack or a number of other electronic shoppes for a reasonable price.

The RF modulator connects to the coax cable connector and it has inputs for the RCA connectors.
