How to Watch a DVD on a Symphonic TV

By James Clark

Symphonic manufactures a line of flat-screen TV sets equipped with a variety of connection jacks for hooking up audio-video components, such as a DVD player. Watching a DVD on the Symphonic TV first requires connecting a DVD player using one of the composite AV inputs on the television. Symphonic TVs have composite (RCA-type) jacks on the rear panel and many models are equipped with jacks in the front, below the screen, as well.

Things You'll Need

  • DVD player
  • Composite AV cable

Step 1

Insert the three plugs on one end of the composite cable into the matching yellow, white and red AV output jacks on the back of the DVD player, then connect the plugs on the other end to the AV inputs on the Symphonic.

Step 2

Plug in the power cords to a wall outlet and turn on the equipment, then press the Symphonic's remote control "Input" button repeatedly until the DVD image appears on the TV screen.

Step 3

Press the "Open" or "Eject" button on the front of the DVD player to insert a DVD into the tray with the shiny side of the disc facing down. Close the tray.

Step 4

Press the up and down arrow keys on the DVD remote control to highlight and press "Play" to start disc playback.

Tips & Warnings

  • Unplug the DVD player and the Symphonic TV from the electricity while connecting the components together. This eliminates the chance of a power surge or short circuit.
