Pretty sure I have the DVD player audio and video inputs hooked up correctly, but I can't get the TV to see it! On other TVs I've used, when I want the signal to come from the DVD player, I change "input" on the tv menu to an auxiliary mode, but I don't see that option here. I can only switch the screen menu between "cable tv" and "antenna," and I think I need a third choice -- don't I?

AV input wire will have three connections. Red, Yellow andWhite. Out of which, Yellow one should be connected to Video Out of the DVD player, and the other two, Read and White; to be connected to the audio out left, and audio out right of the DVD player. The other ends of this wire should be connected to Video In, and Audio In socmets of the TV. Keep trace with the colour of the socket and connect it. Select the Input of the tV to AV. Switch On both the devices. If the connection is correct, you will see the logo of the DVD player on the tv screen.
The Red & White Cable must be plug into the Audio IN of the TV RCA jack this is for Left & Right audio. The Yellow must be plug in into Video Input of the TV for the picture. If you select the AV1 as your DVD input, to view it you must set the tv to AV1.
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.
Are you reffering to your DVD player to be conected to with your TV screen?
For DVD player connection the 3 colored RCA jack socket are:
YELLOW = video out RED and WHITE = Audio out (left and right channels)
to hook up to your screen, at the back of the screen or side of it you'll see RCA socket indicating "AV1" "AV2" AV3" this are all Audio/video inputs where you can hook up all you A/V device or game consoles. These inputs also have the same 3 colored socket (yello = video red/white = audio) connect your DVD player to any of this input following the same color code.After connecting the cable, select the input where you hook up your dvd player. Do this by pressing "A/V" buttons in remote commander of your TV. continously press this button until it reaches the exact location where you plug your player ex. AV1, AV2,AV3
note: in some cases the remote commander doesn't indicate this A/V button but a picture of a box having a arrow pointing inside the box.
You will have to use an audio/video cable for connecting the player to the tv. This cable consists of three wires, generally a white, a red and yellow. Yellow is for video and the other two are for audio. You will find corresponding colored sockets both behind the tv and the player, find out which is the input at the tv and output at the player. Good luck
as you say that it is old tv so there is a possibility that there may not be audio video socket where dcd player can be connected.
You will have to purchase one video RF converter.RF converter contains one video input in yellow color & two audio input in red & white colour & one cable connector as output.
Connect the dvd output to this converter & tune tv program in which place you receive dvd signal.
when you say nothing do you mean the tv wont come on? If the tv is on can you see the words (input, volume bar, menus, etc.) do you hear audio? does the player work on another tv, since you have a sylvania tv, are you using the game button on the top of the remote to switch to the jacks on the front? Good luck :0)
You can find the owner's manual for this set online at:
It says that the BOTTOM four connectors are:
1. S-Video IN
2. Video IN
3. Audio (Right) IN
4. Audio (Left) IN
Above the Audio IN connectors are two audio OUT connectors, which you could hook to external speakers, your stereo, etc. But these are not needed for hooking up your DVD player.
From your DVD player, you need to hook up either the S-Video or Video connection (Video is typically the Yellow wire), plus the Audio connections (Red and White). If your DVD player has an S-Video output, this will give you a better picture than the standard Video connection. S-Video cables have a different plug, with four or five wires in the connector, and are keyed so they only fit into the socket in one orientation. Be careful to line it up properly and not force it in the wrong way.
