Give me a minute please

Ask Your Own TV Question

This is odd , i`m on the RCA website and they don`t have that model number

What type of cables /connection do you have between the DVD and tv ?
Is it HDMI or color coded component cables ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It's probably something to do with my initial setup

I don`t think so no

The initial setup does not touch the various inputs , this come afterwards

Which input are you using , what is its name or label next to it ?

Ask Your Own TV Question

Is it HDMI or color coded component cables ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Dvd under input

At the rear of the tv it says DVD ??

Not INPUT 2,3 ,4 etc. ?

Or HDMI 1,2 , component 1 etc.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Original,,,, AV

O.k and that is what it says at the back of the tv ?

What are you using for cables , red/white/yellow composite cables ?

Ask Your Own TV Question

Or the 5 cables component system ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No so, all i have is the cable with white and red plugged into right and left
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Also into my dvd player

The cable ??

You mean the coax cable in the tv`s antenna /cable terminal ?

Ask Your Own TV Question

Can you give me the model number of that player ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
not using highdef

O.k then your tv is not set to the correct input and those left right cables are redundant

You need to set your tv to TV/TUNER mode then select channel 3 or 4 (enter the digits 03 or 04 on the remote)

Ask Your Own TV Question

Give it a try

Tv is set for channel four

Got something now ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I get satelite but no signal when i try to turn on dvd

You get the satellite on channel 4 ??

Ask Your Own TV Question

If that is the case then your satellite outputs on channel 4 and your dvd on channel 3

This dvd player , does it have a tuner ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
My inputs say. Satelite, dvd. Component HD123 and 4
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I put it on dvd which also comes up on my screen but no signal

Please let have that dvd player model number , there is a mix up in your wiring and how you need to set this

You are using coaxial all the way yes ?

If so then the settings need to be changed or get yourself some RCA cables and use video for either the satellite or dvd

Right now your DVD input is totally redundant and will not work there is nothing connected there !!

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
channel 4

You need to set your dvd player to channel 4 and your tv to channel 3 is my guess , play a dvd annd set your tv to channel 3 to see if you get a picture ?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Are you still there?

Yes was waiting for you

Ask Your Own TV Question

Did you see what I said above ?

You need to set your dvd player to channel 4 and your tv to channel 3 is my guess , play a dvd and set your tv to channel 3 to see if you get a picture ?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Is this through input or menu

Never mind that

I found the error

You said you had the left/right audio connected and a cable in the TV's antenna input , that cable is the satellite not the dvd

You need another cable to connect that yellow jack on the dvd player and it will go into the green Y //Video jack on the tv

Ask Your Own TV Question

That DVD does not have coax out and that is what got me mixed up here when you said it was connected to the TV's antenna terminal

Ask Your Own TV Question

Got something now when you select dvd in the source menu now ?
