I recently lost the cable that connects my TV to DVD player. I purchased a Zenith replacement but there is no sound. I have rechecked to make sure that the colors are in their correct conectors. What should I do next?

Re: RCA TV to DVD Player
Norm, I am assuming you are using component cables. Check to make sure you have the lines ran into the TV in ports e.g. Video1, HDMI1, HDMI3. Also check to make sure the system is not on MUTE or that the internal speakers on the TV are not turned off. If that fails and all was well before the new set of cables try another set.

The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work
just hooked up with an rca cable from the output jack ( audio/video ) of your dvd recorder then the other end connect to the input jack of the tv. then set your tv at the same time the dvd player to record.
If your DVD player and TV have RCA jacks, (3 wires: 2 audio, 1 video) simply patch between the two. If TV does not have RCA jacks, plug the DVD wires (3) into the 'line input 1' on VCR. This way, the VCR is acting as a 'converter' btwn. the DVD player and the TV.
The cable supplied with the player splits the audio feed from a single audio jack to dual RCA jacks for connection to a standard VCR or TV. The video appears to be a straight RCA to RCA type connection where a standard cable can be used.
There are 5 RCA connectors on the back of this TV, (according to the manual). The lower three from left to right are Video in, Audio Left in, Audio Right in. There are also two RCA connectors above these that are the L/R audio outputs. Also, there is an S-Video input which I would recommend using instead of the RCA Video in. You'll still need to use the RCA inputs, but the S-Video will give you the best video connection into this monitor.
I lost the AV cord to my Zenith DVP-615 portable DVD player too. I bought a standard RCA AV but it did not work. I found my cord so I was able to compare. The standard RCA AV cable has a 4-part mini-plug. The tip is white, next is yellow, next is ground and the base is red. For the Zenith DVP-615, the tip is yellow, next is white, next is red and the base is ground.I never found where to purchase a replacement but perhaps this will help someone make their own.
I don't know if the person who posted this problem checks back for the answer.. but I just called Zenith.. who's actually run by LG now I suppose.. Anyways, the customer service rep verified that the a/v cable is just the standard RCA a/v cable that you can pick up anywhere, so it should be easily replaceable if you don't find the original..
