Can't find where to connect for dvd. no white,yellow,or red plug.


Hello, Thank you for the opportunity to help

Sounds like you got a pretty old tv there, its frustrating not to see the RED/WHT/YELLOW plugs on it. This is because this tv was made when that was not out yet. So are you out of luck? No, you ar in luck but it will cost you a little money.

You can purchase one of these RF modulators at Radio shack for like $29.95.

OR

If you have a VCR, Generally they have these plugs out the back of them you would plug the DVD into the VCR in the Video IN. You're TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 (dending on your vcr) You vcr will need to be powered ON then tuned to VIDEO INPUT. You can do this by using the remote's up/Down channels buttons or pressing input on the remote depending on the VCR.

The VCR will need to be connected to the TV's coaxe port on the back, That port looks like this:

If you do not have a VCR you would purchase a RF modulator you TV will need to be on channel 3! The modulator is connect to the port pictured above above. The DVD is then introduced to the ports on the back of the modulator witch looks like this:

may be your tv systems don't have an accessory for audio video input. but you can hookup that by using an RF modulator adapter, this is a converter from audio / video to RF signal and connected directly to your antenna connection. you can purchase that RF modulator adapter to an electronics store.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, the easiest connection method would be to use a short RF patchcord to connect the RF out of the DVD/VCR to the ANT/CABLE/RF IN of the TV. Set the TV to Channel 3. To continue able to receive ant/cable channels, the cable input should go to the ANT/CABLE/RF IN of the VCR/DVD.

No jacks in the back


Hi,

This is a very basic TV with only a single ANT/CABLE/RF INput. If you intend to use a DVD player whose outputs are the yellow, red & white RCA, then you would need either:
1. an RF modulator similar to this one or
2. use an old VCR to accept the yellow, red & white RCA cables as INputs. The VCR would then have to be connected to the ANT/CABLE/RF INput using an RF patch cord. The TV wold then have to be tuned to either Channel 3 or 4.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

RCA TV - Trying to hookup new dvd/vcr player to old tv with only antenna input


The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.

Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.
