video source on a Hacked Camcorder CRT

hi all i have hacked up an old camcorder to get the CRT off it and i am trying to make a scope for my buddy in the reserves, i cant seem to get the video source to work.. ive seen people play gamecube and all kinds on them and i tried using a cut up wire from a dvd player output to it but no luck.. please help 
ive managed to find out that the pink and red wire are my positive and negative so i can light the screen

There's no generic method. Find the service manual for the original camera, and you'll be able to work it out from there.
