    I have the same problem too and I need help! I used to be able to watch dvd. After I hooked a cable line to it I wasn't able to use my dvd player anymore. I unhooked the cable line and reconnected the dvd player the same it was at first but to no avail. Can you guys help me? I looked through the entire menu options on the tv screen but couldn't find any selection that would allow me to return the tv to a video/dvd mode. I also don't have a modulator. Please Please help! Thanks

You need a remote controller to be able to switch input modes. If you don't have the remote and can't find it ever then the only way to reach your tv is through coaxial antenna port. So you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellow and white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

Can i hook up a dvd player to it and if so what cord do i need?


Standard DVD players cannot be connected to this TV because it does not have an AV input. It has only RF input. So you will have to buy an AV to RF Modulator (converter) to connect a DVD player.

Can you hook up a DVD player to this TV? It is a DTQ 13V5FC purchased in 2003.


I took a look at the specs for this set, and it has both front- and rear-panel audio and video input jacks. There's a button marked "VIDEO" on the remote that switches to the AV input so you can watch what you have connected. So yes, you can hook up a DVD player, but there are some limitations.

This isn't a stereo TV, so you'll need a Y-adapter (like this one from Radio Shack) to combine the right and left channel sound from the DVD player into a single mono input for the TV. This means you'll lose any stereo effects from the DVD. Also, even though there are two sets of AV input jacks, the TV can only use one at a time. You can't select the front or rear input separately.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

II HAVE A 13 INCH BRAND MODEL DWT 1304. I JUST WANT TO USE IT FOR A DVD PLAYER. I HAVE NO REMOTE ,HOW DO I CHANGE THE TV TO PLAY DVD OR VEDIO


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.

Yes they will. Just choose AV1 AV2 etc on the menu untill you get the picture and sound from the DVD. They connect the same way two for the audio which is left and right. The yellow one is for the video.

Can not make the instalation betwen my tv and my dvd player


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.

If this takes care of your connection troubles, please take a moment to give my solution a good rating. If I've missed something and can be of more help, please post a followup comment.

PAL capable


No, the PLAYER has to be PAL Regional - any tv will play the signal it is given.
If the player was purchased in the US, it is NTSC.
Some players are Region Free (especially older ones) - However symphonic states yours is a NTSC Region player. I would suggest purchasing a cheapo PAL DVD player off eBay, and connecting to the A/V inputs on your TV.

Video Input


Are you sure that the source is generating a video signal? It is extremely rare for both front and rear Video Input sockets to fail simultaneoisly. from your description, i would suspect the cable connecting the Viseo out of your DVD player / Video Game than the Video Input ports of the TV. If you have another cable, just try again with that. Or, try using the Red to red cable into the Yellow port, using one end at the DVD player and the other at the TV Video Input. If there is image, then it is confirmed that the cable is faulty, and you can get a replacement cable for a few bucks at any Video store.
