In order to hook up a new DVD player, we can't get the RCA F27636BC 27" TV to change to TV/Video input and get anything incoming. I don't see this anwhere in the Menu selections and when I use the DishNetwork TV/Video input button, nothing happens.

Re: I can't select TV/Video input on the menu
If you have the original remote (RCA Universal with red and blue buttons), you can switch from the TV tuner to the audio/video input with the INPUT button. It is to the left of zero on the numeric keypad, above the red CLEAR button.
Press it again to get back to the TV tuner.

Press menu on your remote. Press "4" for channel and "4" for video input source. In this menu, you can toggle between s-video and regular video (yellow plug) input. The disadvantage is, if you're like me and you've got a DVD player and and VCR (or maybe a video game system) all hooked up to the same TV, you've got to go through the menu and switch the inputs to watch something else. I'm happy with my digital audio cable; I'll deal with yellow-plug video.
U setup ur DVD player in what format?Set it up with a one cable call HDMI?Or u use a RCA cable YELLOW.RED,WHITE to hook it up.The movie play,u push the button on ur remote said INPUT go down INPUT said 1,2,3 so on.If hook it up right the movie,should play in one of this INPUT said 1,2,3 so on.
There are a few possible reasons, the first being that the tube has burned out inside the TV. But before jumping to that conclusion I would check to make sure that your A/V cables are connected properly (video being the yellow cable, or if you may be using S-video which is a black cable that has 4 steel pins and 1 horizontal black plastic or metal one) and make sure that you have the cables plugged into the same numbered input: ie. Audio is in audio 1 and video is in video 1 rather than audio being in audio 1 and video being in video 2.
Also be sure that you've selected the right input from the remote or from the television itself.
removed cable at the back of your TV insert any pin metal material like paperlip without the plastic cover and search local channels from 1-13,, if it does,, contact your cable provider.. it may had cable line problems.
The input on your television is probably coaxial (for cable or an antenna) which means it needs an RF modulated signal. You can find one of those at your local department or electronics stores. Just look for an "RF Modulator" or "video-RF convertor." They're most commonly used to hook video games up to older televisions.
Now, if you've got an old VCR handy, that has an external input, it already has the RF modulator built-in.
