Just purchased and E-43. I do not want or need any

Customer Question
Just purchased and E-43...

Just purchased and E-43. I do not want or need any sophisticated uses, I merely want to hook up a DVD player (non-BluRay). This should be a very simple operation. I tried this but get "no signal." Press input button but get something unusable about HD. Usually in hooking up DVD player I use red, white, and yellow connections. I have plugged in the red and white but find no place for the yellow. Remember I am a very simple user.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your speaker or sound system?

There is no speaker or sound system except what may be in the TV itself or the DVD player. Do you mean I need a speaker system to use the TV?

Got it
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

These tv`s share the composite (what you have) and component (5 cables) video so use the green (Y) input for that yellow cable then open the input list and select COMP and that should do it

Bad vocal cords. Cannot use phone
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Let me know how that goes

If you received a phone offer or any offers they are automated by the website ,NOT BY ME , I`m an independent tech. and have no control over those.
They are optional and you can just decline if you don`t want them

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Connect your dvd as i described above then select COMP in the input menu and you`re done

If that answers your questions for now then PLEASE DO TAKE THE TIME TO RATE (stars above and submit), it does not cost you anything more and does not close this post so you can come back at any time without additional charges if you have further questions or need help and it gets this independent tech. paid for his time helping you .
