The a/v connections on both the front AND rear of my Emerson EWT2721 television do not work with any dvd player I have tried, or even with a simple vcr (by a/v connections and a/v wire I refer to the red, white, and yellow connections). The connection for the "cable wire" (the threaded connection for an antenna or a Cable television cable) was broken in a recent move, so unless I can get one of the a/v connections working (preferably the rear), I cannot use this tv ever again.
I have tried every channel on the tv, and even went in the menu and added a channel "1", to no avail. Nothing will show the input from the a/v wire. I even tried two different a/v wires, and used these same a/v wires on another tv in the bedroom and a dvd player and they both worked fine, so the cables do not have the problem.
Please help, I desperately want to save this tv, it was in perfect working order (excpet for the a/v connections) until the cable-wire connection snapped, and I don't have money for a repair shop or replacement. Thank you in advance!

There are 2 rows of RCA connectors on the back of this TV. If you are looking at the back of the TV, on the right side you'll find the connectors. On the bottom row, left most RCA jack is the Video in for the Component video. on the top row, the right 2 connectors are for Audio connections. we put the Yellow plug from our Wii into the bottom row video connector, and the red and white RCA connectors into the top row plugs.
This enabled us to connect the Wii, and play games.
It may be a bad sensor on the T.V. and not the remote. However, if you really believe that the remote is broken,
This is a link to get it.
If the channel buttons wont get you to the selected input, you probably have to play in the T.V. menu to see if you can get to the input from there, or just buy the replacement remote.
If you do not get result you can purchase one video rf converter.
Rf converter contains one videoinput in yellow colourand two audio in red and white colour and one cable connector as outout.
Connect dvd output to this converter and tune the program in whichplace you receive dvd signal.
Did the TV get pink with the wavy lines all at once, or did it start out gradual? If all of a sudden, then a defective part on the CRT control board or the picture tube itself could be going bad along with some components in the video section of the set. Probably not a cheap and easy fix I'm afraid.
