It looks like you've got a plain, old "480i standard definition" TV. The inputs on it will likely be limited to S-Video, RF Coaxial (cable) and one or more sets of "A/V" inputs that consist of 3 jacks - 1 each yellow, red, and white. Without knowing the make & model of the TV I can't be sure which / how many inputs it has. It looks like you're trying to play a DVD. Most DVD players only offer A/V type connections - again - you didn't provide this info so I'm forced to guess. The Yellow jack (on TVs and disc and tape player / recorders almost always provide the higher quality A/V jacks) is for the video signal and the Red & White are always the left and right stereo audio jacks. The cables used to connect devices to the TV have the same colored plugs to make matching them up easier than if they were all the same color. If you accidentally connected one of the red or white audio plugs into the yellow video jack, you will not have a picture. Check BOTH ends of the cable - at the TV and at the DVD player. All three plugs must be connected to the corresponding colored jack.

If it is connected properly, your DVD player might be one that was a more expensive type that offers "480P Progressive Scan" output along with the standard "480i interlaced scan" output. The 480i output was called "standard definition" and 480P was called "enhanced definition" and provided a better picture. If your TV only supports 480i, it will not be able to display a 480P signal. You will need to check the DVD Player manual to find out how to return the output to 480i again. If you no longer possess the manual, you may either Google it or provide the brand and model here so that we might take a look for it for you.

In the event that you are using RF coax (cable) to get the signal from the source into the TV, you may just be trying to watch it on CH4 instead of CH3 (or vice-versa). Try changing the channel up or down one from where it is to see if the picture comes in.

I hope this helps & good luck!

A video I made years ago off my mobile phone and downloaded to my desktop played great, but now has lost the audio portion of it


It might be that computer has lost the audio codec it needs to play the video. Without know the type of file your video is I can't say anything more. But you can right click on the file itself and look at the file's properties. That might tell you what the audio codec is. You should be able to download the codec once you know what it is.

My cigarette lighter won't work


Check the fuse. If the fuses are good, then it's possible that the cigarette lighter is unplugged. If the portion of the vehicle was disassembled, it may not have been reconnected during assembly.

If your satellite box is connected using a digital cable to the 601 receiver you won't get any sound through zone 2.Zone 2 can process only analogue sound ( inputs ).

The stability depends on the network in your area, so you can't make a comparison outside of it.
