You're using the same video connections the viewfinder I guess, but what signal are you feeding it?

I thought these things were analogue-in, I guess you're using composite-video-out? But other than that I'm running out of ideas..

i have a dvd player player with the video out cable cut at the end so it exposes two cables an inner core and an exterior

I don't know what the input to the view finder was but I doubt that it was the same as the output of the dvd player. Have you done any research on what the view finder is expecting?
