I just bought this tv and there is one outlet on the back. I was wondering if the tv was dvd compatible? And if so, do i need an extra cord for the dvd because all I have now are the red, yellow, and white connectors on both sides of the cord and have no idea how to install it into the tv if it is even compatible. Can anyone help me with anything?
If the TV has the corresponding red, yellow, and white plugs, simply match them up and you're good to go. If it happens to just have white and yellow, plug those two up and it will work fine (sound will be mono instead of stereo). If there aren't any of these plugs, you can pick up an A/V switch. This is a box that has multiple sets of red, yellow, and white plugs to connect multiple devices to a TV but it also will allow you to connect these devices to a TV that only has the round coax connection (like what comes from your cable company) just follow the directions included with the switch and you'll be fine. You can pick up one most anywhere that sells electronics.

Sounds like you needed a list of your TV's requirements....
....Before You Purchased
Ask the Sales Person where you bought it from.
Most Retail outlets have a cooling of period after a sale.
You need a step down converter. They are cheap. You might have already damaged your TV, though. The converters here say for Asia/Europe use but probably same plug for Africa. Verify that when ordering.
yes replace the lamp, sony units have certain specs that the lamp must meet to operate correctly. If the Lamp you purchased is made by LTI, these lamps do not last long as they are poorly manufactured. Look at the bulb and see who is the maker if its says LTI then replace with a Phillips brand that meets spec's for sony.
