I got this tv without a remote, and wanted to hook my dvd player up to it, but am unable to change the program source to use the front A/V jacks because I cannot press the input button on the remote--is there a way to change this on the tv without the remote? Thanks

CogecoClick on the TV button near the top of the remote. Click on the video source button on the bottom left corner of the remote. Using the arrow keys to highlight/select the inputyou want. Some televisions may require pressing the source button multiple times to change the inputs.

The best option would be the HDMI-to-HDMI connection between your player and your TV. But because you mentioned that your TV is an old model, probably it does not have an HDMI port, in which case you have to use the RCA A/V connection. I understand you do not have a remote control for your TV, but you do not program a TV channel to watch DVD movies; you just switch between your TV and the DVD player as your audio/video sources. Here is what you have to do: check on your TV box for a button labeled 'Source' or 'Input'. Press on the button and it will alternate between TV and DVD (assuming you do not have any other device hooked up to your TV).
You either need to change the input source. Currently the source is TV, depending on how you connected the DVD player to the TV, it should be composite (A/V), component video or HDMI. (S-video is also a possibility. Very few DVD players are connected on the RF (coax) input which might be channel 3 or 4 without having a converter between the DVD player and the TV.)
Look on your TV remote for a button marked Source or Input. You may also find this button on the TV. (On some TVs, this may also be accessed through the menus.)
How did you connect the TV and the DVD player? If your audio and video were connected via three RCA plugs (yellow, red, white) on each end, then use the composite video input. If you used cables with 3 RCA plugs for video (yellow, green, blue) and 2 for audio (red/white), then switch to the component input. If you used HDMI which carries audio and video in one cable (with rectangular ends), then use the HDMI input.
Some older TVs only have the Source/Input button on their original remote. Not all universal replacement remotes have this button, you may need a different remote. Those that do may require you to try additional codes for your TV manufacturer to enable the button. (The on./off buttons often will work with more of the codes for a brand.) The ones that can be programmed via a USB connection to a computer are most likely to support the function. Please add a comment with the type of TV for additional help with this.
Sounds like you need to change the input channel of your TV with your TV remote. Look for an Input or Video Source button. Once you've found it, insert a DVD then cycle through the inputs with that button until you see something on the screen. As always this could be undermined by incorrect connections to and from and the DVD player. Double check these as always!
You need to change via tv selections option for tv, this should be possible by selecting the source for tv feed. This should give various options to select hdmi11, hdmi12, scart1 ect. If remote not working to change look on the tv itself for the control buttons, normally on the back to 1 side (rh from front) then pressing the correct button. If this does not work try turning power off to tv for a couple of minutes and then turning back on. Hope this helps.
You should have an input or source button on your tv remote control. Turn on your dvd player and press this button ( changing source from tv/cable to whichever video input your dvd player is plugged into ) until you get the dvd picture.
