I was in Menards and saw them playing a DVD on this model TV. I have a similar need for a very low cost play. If our product go over a well as I hope, we will needs hundreds of these to show our DVD's. Do you have a low cost 9 or 12 inch player that just plays DVD's?

Hello The output signal's colour system to this player is NTSC. Just look whether your TV is NTSC system compactable. Check whether the disc is recorded in any other colour system, like PAL or SECAM. These are the reasons for absence of colour to the picture. Check whether the colour control of the TV is at minimum.
Not much you can do without a remote for this model except play 1 disc (CD or DVD) manually at a time. You could try to obtain a replacement of the original remote directly from Panasonic, or you can look again for your lost one in your home, or you can try a (cheaper) universal remote with this unit. The cost depends on what type of remote you get and where you buy it from (if you order through Panasonic there may be an additional shipping charge). Sequential play (one disc after the other automatically) usually can only be set using the remote.
The fact is, this player needs a remote for full functionality If you want random/sequential play for multi discs, the original Panasonic remote is required - try ordering this first if it is available. If not, then consider a universal. (you could also look on eBay for a similar DVD player remote for this model)
Your description indicates that the last step in the DVD recording has not been performed on these discs that were recorded on the Magnavox. This would be "finalize" or instruct the Magnavox that no other files would be written/recorded on the current disc. Thereafter, the Magnavox would complete the DVD disc making it playable in any other player. Normally, finalization would take a bit of time to complete.
Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
I think your set does not support A/V inputs. It is only able to be used as a simple TV on cable or an antenna.
For your DVD player, you can buy a modulator that can convert the A/V to RF. You can then connect it up with a CATV A/B switch so that you can switch between the modulator and the cable or antenna service. Speak with the sales rep about the details for the modulators that he is selling.
I have seen low cost modulators for under $30. Check out places like Radio Shack or Circuit City.
The quality of the DVD player will be very poor when fed to the TV through a low cost demodulator.
The optics might be dirty or the pickup assembly might need alignment. In the former case you can get an optics cleaning kit and try to clean the laser LED and pickup assembly. For the latter cause you will need to have thre unit aligned at a TV repair shop.
