Tried to help my friend connect a DVD player to his 35V432T RCA. It has front and rear jacks, but there was no recognition from the TV when we connected several different DVD players. He bought it as a floor model with no User's guide. We couldn't find anyhting in the on-line menu to allow or facilitate the set-up. First TV I've found that I couldn't figure this out on.
Also, RCA has no on-line user guide available for this model - not even in the old archives they route you to. Help would be greatly appreciated.

the back of dvd is easy because it only has outputs with color code, the inputs and outputs on the back of the tv are grouped if you look closely on the back. select video 1 as an input on tv, and start with the far left yellow jacks on the back of tv, connect yellow rca cable and check for pic on tv, if not move to next yellow jack on back of tv, until you get a pic, connect the red and white right below the yellow jack that gave you the picture and you should also have sound
Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.
This television has front and back rca jacks. Those are the yellow red and white holes. You would get an rca cable and connect it between this television and the dvd player. Then you would have to change av inputs on the television's remote to access the DVD player's signal.
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.
Most DVD players today have only RCA jacks for video and audio outputs, and don't have RF (channel 3 or 4) outputs. If your TV doesn't have AV input jacks (either too old or just not supplied on your model) you can't connect the DVD player directly. You'll need to get an RF converter to make the connection.
An RF converter costs about $15 and you'll find them where you can buy TVs. The converter takes the video and audio signals from the DVD player and creates a channel 3 or 4 output signal to your TV. If you don't have the cables already, make sure to get them too. You need a "dubbing cable" (RCA plugs on the ends, usually color-coded red, white and yellow) to connect the DVD player to the converter input jacks and an RF cable with "F connectors" on the ends for the output to the TV. Often the dubbing cable comes with a new DVD player, and the RF cable with the RF converter.
