DVD player to 27GT623 Television

I have a DVD player I would like to plug into the TV. There are white, red and yellow outlets in the back of the TV and everything is connected. However I don't know how to find an AUX channel on the TV or where the DVD channel would be. Any ideas?

Just press the AV / Tv button from the remote control or press the channel up or down until it reaches the input mode next to the last channel slot.

I can assume the input for your tv has only a coax input to it. Meaning a threaded connector on the back. If so, first connect the Wii to the input of the dvd player, second, from the output of the dvd player, this is where your solution is needed. run a coax cable from the tv to the DVD player and at the dvd player you will need an adapter from your local Radio Shack or electronics store. It should be a female coax to RCA adapter (male Red White and Yellow).Red and white for audio and yellow for video. Post a pic of the back of the tv if this doesnt solve it for you. Good luck, fingers crossed.

I am trying to install ROKU video streamer into my Sharp TV model 27KS300. Roku says to plug their red/yellow/white RCA cable into the video in ports on your TV. I do this but nothing happens. I am...

Yes these are the same yellow white and red ports that you would use to connect your DVD player. I believe this television has one port in the front and one in the back. I might be wrong but I believe video 1 is in the back and video 2 is in the front. If you have tried video 1 and video 2 making sure you have pressed the video/input button to select the proper one after connecting your Roku then you have done everything properly. Make sure to try a different RCA cable to make sure it is not the cable that is causing the problem. Also try the Roku on a different television because if it is working on a different television with the same RCA cable then you'll know that it isn't compatible with this particular television.

I can hear the tv but no picture.. i remove the red, yellow, and white cord from the back of the tv to dust...pls help.. Apex tv brand

Hi! Welcome to Fixya!

If you are unable to view video on your television set, the issue may be that the TV's video input selection does not match.

The TV input source must match how the equipment for example DVD is connected to the TV.

* Plug the RCA cables(red,yellow,white cord) to the designated ports.
* Grab your Apex TV remote and attempt to cycle through the video inputs by hitting the "Input" button at the top of the remote multiple times.
* If you have used a DVD player or similar external device recently, you may have neglected to switch the video input back to the one assigned to your TV programming.
* Devices such as DVD players often reside on the AV 1 or AV 2 video input, and failure to switch back off of one of these will result in a dark, soundless screen when attempting to view cable or satellite television.
* Cycle through the inputs until you land on your cable/satellite input once more, which should result in an immediate restoration of picture and sound.
* If it does not, approach your Apex TV and look over the A/V cable connections. The A/V cable has two sets of prongs, one on either of its ends. Each prong is either red, yellow and white, and plugs into corresponding A/V ports on the back of the Apex TV and the back of your cable or satellite box. Make sure the ports and prongs are color-corresponding and have not been switched up.

Thank you for using FixYa. Keep me posted. :

Trying to connect the TV Model 20F420T withy DVD player all I get is a bluescreen

I'm sure you've tried this already but if not try another composite (red, yellow, and white) cable. Try the av jacks in both the front and the back. Try another cable besides the yellow composite cable i.e. S Video. Try the DVD player on another television first to see if it is working. Try another DVD player or VCR or Wii or etc. to make sure an image displays on the television from it.

How do I know if I can use a dvd player with my television

all dvd players will work on any tv,

how ever depending on what your connections are on the back of the tv you may need to buy a special adapter to hook the dvd player up.

if you see a yellow, white, and red plugs that say "input" near them on the back of hte tv, or you see these color of plugs on the front of your tv your good to go.

if all you got is the normal cable screw jack, then you will have to by a RF Modulator. The one below is from rca. what it is lets u plug the red, white, and yellow cables form your dvd player into it, and then it turns it into a regular cable that u can hook into the box then the back of your tv.

please rate me, if this was helpful, as well mark it as fixya. the more it shows that I helped the better, as well it lets me know what i need to work on. if people say its not helpful.

Orion tv without input/output plugs

from the looks of the picture you have one audio video input port on the front of the tv. The connectors are yellow and red or yellow and white. Yellow is video and red or white are audio. Find those same connectors on the back or your dvd player, hook it up to the tv and there you go. You'll have to go to game mode or input 2 on the tv to see the dvd player.

DVD player won't work on my 27gt615


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.

Hooking up a dvd player

Red and white are audio cables
Yellow is video.

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.

Cant get dvd to operate

Have you changed the TV input to AUX? If there is a VCR hooked up with your satellite box it has to be on Line or Aux too. Make sure these are in place before trying the DVD player
