I attempted to connect a DVD player to this TV in a spare room. Since there are only 2 ports (video in and audio in) only 2 out of the 3 plugs required to connect the equipment were accomplished. The result is that the DVDs play but in black and white. I also attempted to use a coax to connect it with no success. Can you please tell me what to do? (Please be specific ie. "red cord goes into video out on the dvd player, coax goes in....) I am tech. challenged. Thanks for your help!!!!!

Check the back of your TV for external input connections. Usually there will be one to three connections available for the various types of cables. Check the back of your DVD for the output connections, usually one to three as on your TV. Choose one and use the cable type that matches the DVD output and the TV input connections and you are done.
A converter box is not needed to connect a DVD player to a TV. However, you do need a single cable with red, white, and yellow adapters orconnecterson one end and at least yellow and white on the other end. Ok if you have red; just don't worry if there isn't a hole to plug into.
Hi, In order to watch either DVD or VHS on your TV ,you need to make the following connections ..
You need to connect "DVD Player / VCR Combo" to" TV " as (Audio/video output
of DVD Player / VCR Combo -TO- Audio/Video input of TV) ..
use either "RCA analog (red/white +yellow ) " or "SCART "or
"Optic " cable.(any standard optical cable )...if exist ,optic is the best way to
connect it..Remember your DVD Player / VCR Combo 's "OUT" goes into" IN "of the TV ..
remember,wherever you connect your DVD Player / VCR Combo on your TV ,you should switch
the source selector accordingly to correspond to the connection on the

Look in the back or the front of ur tv have a (Video Audio holes In).Look in ur DVD player in the back or the front have a (video Audio holes Out).Used a component AV video cable hook both devices together.Find the Video Mode in ur tv 1 or 2,now play the DVD player with a dvd disc.Now u should be playing the content of the dvd disc.If u don't have a AV video cable,tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to buy a set of AV video cable.
Initially, the only reason you would need/use a modulator is when the DVD/VCR has no RF OUT and the Quasar TV has no Audio/Video IN. If this were the case, then connections would be:
yellow Video Out of DVD/VCD to yellow Video IN of modulator;
red/white Audio Out of DVD/VCR to red/white Audio In of modulator;
modulator RF Out to RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar;
TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4;
if Modulator has no RF OUT but instead has a small antenna, still the TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4.
If however, the DVD/VCR has an RF OUT, then a coaxial patch cord from this could be connected to the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar. The TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4. There would be no need for the modulator.
Is simply. get the audio/vido cables and look on the back of the TV and connect from the audio video outputs from the combo to the audio video inputs on the tv. remember the colors of the terminals and connect them that matches the red, white (audio) and the yellow (video). Using the remote locate the button "input" or "source", and select video 1 or 2, depending where you connected it.
Yes, for a workaround. The adapter would be 2 RCA female to 1 RCA male. You have to connect both the red and white to the female RCAs and use the male to connect to the TV's Audio INput. The yellow goes to the video. There should be no negative technical effect other than lost of stereo quality. The audio output of the DVD is line level and could normally tolerate this condition.
The correct method is to use a simple line level audio mixer and mix the L& R audio signal to produce a mono signal or to use a stereo amplifier for the sound output.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
