Old zenith sytem 3 tv not responding to dvd player

I'm trying to get my zenith system 3 tv and dvd player to work together. I've even placed my dvd player's audio and video plugs into the correct sockets of my tv, but both appliances aren't responding to each other. What should I do? Do I need an RF modulator?

I am trying to get a remote code for my slyvania 6719


I also can't find the remote for my Sylvania
TV/VCR/DVD combo...
Model number 6719DF. I don't normally use this tv
(it's an extra spare that I plug into our generator when
the power goes out... since our regular family TV is
quite big and set into the wall making it difficult to
track cords around, I drag this crappy Sylvania down
from our dining room to our family room) I did
happen to find an old Zenith universal remote that
does work with it in some ways (See directions
below). I can turn the TV on and off, set the channels,
language, clock.. etc through the Input select button
on the universal remote but can't set to "Game Mode"
after using connections with video/audio input cords
plugged into the front panel of the TV. So
Playstations, extra dvd players or vcr's, etc won't
work.
Switching from the VCR to DVD and vice versa does
require manually setting the tv itself (remote doesn't
work with that) but at least I can set sub titles, fast
forward through chapters on Dvd's and control the
volume, etc without having to constantly walk over to
the tv.
Programming the remote: I've noticed a lot of people
have tried using codes supplied by different universal
remote providers and couldn't find a code that
worked using their lists with this particular model...
there is a way that it can be done but it's a bit more
time consuming:
Many types of "universal" remotes give the option of
"scanning" the electronic device for a code if one is
not available or the one provided with lists does not
work... Every universal remote though needs certain
buttons pushed during the "scan" and they are all
different! Ha! So if you lost or misplaced the MANUAL
as well (like me!) you might need to do a search on a
manual for your particular universal remote, but I can
at least give you directions on programming a
"Zenith" Universal remote to "scan" for a Sylvania
TV/DVD/VCR combo model 6719DF:
Using the Zenith Universal Remote or any Universal Remote using it's "scan" method:
1: Shut off the TV
2. Press and hold "Code Search" on the remote until
the red LED
light lights up and stays lit.
3. Press the device button for the device (In my case,
for my crappy Sylvania combo, I pressed "TV".)
The LED light will blink once.
4. Scanning: Slowly press and release the "Power"
button on the remote, waiting a few seconds between
while watching the TV to turn on. It's very important
that you pause in between because if you do it too fast
and the TV turns on before you press the power
button again... you'll have to start all over. I've
learned that lesson.
It took 160 presses each time on that button to get the
correct code scanned! I had to do it over 3 times
before I stopped myself beforehand because I was
pressing it too quickly..
5. Right after the TV power turns on, press the "Mute"
button on the remote to set the code. It should work with few limitations (no "game" mode)
after that.

Greetings - You need to have you DVD player hooked up to the video inputs - See below. Don't mind the mouse scratch out lines. The Device on the right represents your DVD player.

You then have to choose video as your source on the TV (not channel 3 or 4) using your remote - see below.

Just got a dvd player, how do i get to play dvd mode?


There are connections on the back of your TV for Audio and Video inputs. You connect the corresponding connections to your DVD player. You then use the TV/VCR SOURCE button on your remote to change to that input. In case you don't have your manual the following web address will take you to a place that will let you download the manual.

How to connect a 1999 zenith TV to a cable box and


Hello,
Connet the output of the cable box to the DVD player and the TV out output of the DVD player to the TV (TV must be tuned to Channel 0, Chanel 3 or 4). You should be able to use the remote to switch between the DVD signal and the cable signal.

Hope it helps.

Zenith TV has no place for yellow, red, white composite plugs


This TV doesn't have an AV input, so there are no input jacks other than the antenna connector. If you want to connect a device that has only AV outputs (your red, white and yellow plug) you will need an RF converter. This will take the AV signals and convert them to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can tune in on the set.

But since you don't seem interested in spending any money, you'll probably not like to hear that the converter runs around $15 most places. Take heart, there is an alternative. Find a VCR (if you don't have one already) that has an RF output. Many of the the newer DVD/VCR combos only have AV outputs. You're looking for one that has an "out to TV" threaded connector on the back. These units already have an RF converter built in. Connect your AV plugs to the line in jacks on the VCR and switch to that input, and you can use your video game or DVD player through the VCR.

Zenith SMS1943S made 1995 Need code to switch to dvd status


nleebrooks,

1) check the RCA cable connection from your DVD to TV screen.
make sure that each cable is in the right place (for DVD player yellow cable = video/ red and white cable = audio) (TV screen: yellow cable = video IN /white and red = audio IN

2) from your TV screen locate and check for A/V IN socket. it's either at the back/front or side of the screen.

note: some of TV screen does have 2 A/V inputs

3) Facing the front of your TV screen, locate a button indicating "A/V" or "AV" or a box picture having a forward arrow inside.

note: if you locate the said button and your screen have 2 A/V inputs press the said button until the right input where you connect your dvd cable been set.


cheers,
mark

Cant get dvd to operate


Have you changed the TV input to AUX? If there is a VCR hooked up with your satellite box it has to be on Line or Aux too. Make sure these are in place before trying the DVD player

Hooking up a dvd player


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. OR 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.

Hooking up a cd player


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.)
