Re: Can't watch dvds with my dvd player
Try two different things 1) on some of these tv's you could try pressing 00 to see if it will put you in input mode or 2) with your remote you should be able to push the input or tv/video to go to the input selection . In both of the above make sure you push the tv button first then step 1 or 2 . Good luck

Perhaps your dvd player output is set for channel 3 so you have to select that channel for the dvd player to play on your tv. Some older analog tvs have a separate input for dvd on the back or front. In that case you have to select that setting from the tv menu
Hi, This tv has 2 AV inputs at rear to connect dvd player or any other video source. Plug RCA video cable in AV Input-1 at rear of tv and select Input-1 source in tv remote to get dvd player playback picture in tv. Click HERE to download user manual free copy that has details about tv operations. Hope these info will help you. Thanks.
im guessing that you cant go to av mode because you dont have a remote, am I right? if thats the case you need to go to walmart and buy an RF converter. You can plug you dvd into the converter, then run a coax cable from the converter to your tv coax inout aka anteanna input, then depending on your converter switch your tv to either channel 3 or 4 and presto. it will hook up just like vcr's and onld nintendos use to. You can pick up an RF converter cheap at walmart or check e-bay, couple bucks and your watching dvds.
does your tv have a scart socket or is it pre scart, if it does, and you connect the dvd player via the scart then the tv should auromativally switch to av when the dvd player is switched on. failing that, if you have no scart, then the only way you can watch dvd is by connecting a flylead from dvd player to tv, (take out antenna and put it in that socket) and then start a search if you can, normally the buttons for this are behind a flap somewhere on the tv. if you have no scart or a way of tuning tv, then i dont think you can watch dvd through that tv
I'm assuming you mean a DVD player, not a CD player?
1. You can get an input splitter (basically an A/B switch for the cable), and connect to that, manually switching between the two sources.
2. You can replace the VCR and the DVD player with a combination DVD/VHS unit.
Although it would seem logical, it is unlikely that you can hook the DVD player to the VCR, since the VCR will refuse to let the signal pass though it, as part of its MacroVision copy protection. (This is the same sytem that prevents you from recording DVDs onto VHS tapes.)
Assuming you have picture on the TV when hooked up to cable, antenna or satellite I would take the DVD player to a friends house to see if it worked on their set (using your cables of course). If you can't get a picture on your TV no matter what, then it could be either the Jungle IC or EEPROM IC inside the set. Since it displays "No Video Signal" on the screen, that leaves out the High Voltage section of the TV. My main suspicion would be the video cable or settings on the DVD or TV.
