Question about Sony DVP-NS55P DVD Player

Loud buzzing noise

I connected my dvd player directly to the back of my tv, (not through my sound system) using the red, white and yellow cables but I have a very loud buzz in the audio. I get the same buzz when I connect the player to the accessories ports on the side of the tv. Any thoughts?

Re: Loud buzzing noise

I have a new Sony RDR VX555 DVD/VCR recorder player. Yesterday I played a DVD with it for the first time. I noticed a humming noise that was quite noticeable. After checking around, I discovered that the noise was not in the system's audio cables, but was a mechanical hum from the DVD machine. It was radiating through the feet of the unit through the entertainment cabinet. I placed cork coasters beneath all the feet and that isolated the unit from the cabinet and killed the sound. You might try checking to be sure where the hum is coming from.

Made sure those cables go to the right jacks, input to output,output to input.If that doesn't worked, the jacks maybe shorted, either your tv or dvd player.

I am trying to hook the dvd player up to my old tv and am only getting sound, I am using the red, white and yellow cord.

I hope this will clarify things, you have 3 connections on each end.
  • Yellow Cable goes on Video Out (Yellow)
  • White Cable goes on Left Audio Out (White)
  • Red Cable goes on Right Audio Out (Red)

  • Yellow Cable goes on Video IN (Yellow)
  • White Cable goes on Left Audio IN (White)
  • Red Cable goes on Right Audio IN (Red)

the coaxial audio connection does NOT need to be connected.
I hope this helps,

We're not getting any sound from the dvd's. I have two cables (green/blue/red) and (red/white). but I'm at a loss how to connect from DVD to TV. Help please!

If your TV has the green, blue, red inputs then connect these 3 cables for the picture. DVD to TV, green to green, blue to blue and red to red. If your TV only has a yellow input, then connect the green cable only from the DVD yellow to the TV yellow. Now for the sound. Connect the DVD white to the TV white. Connect the DVD red to the TV red with the red cable. The white and red inputs will be next to the yellow and the green, blue, red inputs on the TV. Next select the TV input using your TV remote. Select the input for the DVD connection.

The picture is green

Make sure that the unit is connected to the tv properly. Be aware that most dvd players have six connections. You can connect the unit to the television using RCA cables (yellow, white, red) or RCA sound with component video (white, red, blue, green, and red). When using the yellow-white-red method, the sound is carried by the white and red cables and the video signal is carried by the yellow cable. If you're using the white-red-blue-green-red method, the white and one of the red cables carries the sound, and the blue-green-red cable carries the video signal. This connection uses one cable for the green component of the picture, one for the blue, and one for the red. Make sure that the cables are connected properly and you don't have the two red ones mixed up. Connect Sound-R to Sound-R, component R to component R, etc. If that doesn't work, you may be able to adjust the picture on the tv. There's still a chance that the machine is defective.

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)

Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)

where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

No sound


good day, make sure your RCA red and white marked cable connected to TV screen audio input where you also connect your yellow cable which is the video.

note: always remember color code of RCA cable

yellow = video
red and white = audio (left and right)

connection would always be:

video device yellow RCA socket = TV yellow "INPUT" socket
white and red RCA = TV white and red "INPUT "socket
make sure that all this 3 cable are connected together in a specific "A/V input"

cheers ,

good day,to connect your DVD to TV screen follow this steps.

1) prepare your RCA cable ( 3 colored cable yellow/red/white)

How do i connect my GPX dvd player to my hd tv? I have Direct TV also.

I also have a GPS DVD Player and Direct TV. On the back of the TV there are slots for AV1 and AV2, I chose AV1. The yellow cable is your video.When placing the YELLOW in the video I noticed the pic was Black and White. After changing it to the slot marked Video Y the color came back. The white and red are audio. I put the WHITE in Audio L and the RED next to it in Audio Pr. Granted I am using a Phillips TV but the concept is the same. Hope this helps. If you don't have sound, switch the position of the Audio (red and white) cables.

Trying to Install

Do you have the red, white and yellow hookups on the back of your TV????? If you don't then you need to get an RF Modulator. You can buy one at Walmart. Older TVs don't have the red, white and yellow hookups. You hook up the RF modulator with a short cable to the cable outlet on your TV. Then you plug in your DVD player to the RF modulator. You also plug your cable for the TV into the RF modulator. It really is very simple. Directions are included with the RF modulator. You will need a short piece of cable also.
