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?
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.

Yes you can use Just the red,white and yellow cable from your dvd player to the tv....now make sure you have it connected correctly...sometimes its easy to confused the yellow and white connections. make sure your tv is turned to Input that you have used for connecting the cables on the back....such as...input 1...select input 1 on your tv....or if it says dvd...then select dvdv on yoru tv..You can use a HDMI cable...just plug HDMI from your dvd player to your tv and select HDMI on yoru tv..Good luck
There are generally 2 ways to connect a dvd player to a tv.1 If you have 3 rca connectors on the back of your tv (they are color coded yellow for video and white and red for audio left and right channels respectively) and the same connectors on the back or side of the dvd player.Use rca cables to connect the dvd player to the tv,connecting yellow to yellow white to white and red to red.Using the remote put your tv on video.Put the channel selector on the dvd/vcr player on video or L1 or E1 (depending on what brand dvd/vcr you have).2 connect a rf (coaxial cable from the rf output of the dvd/vcr and connect this directly to the rf (antenna) input to your tv.Put the tv on channel 3.Play the dvd/vcr to see if you have the video.If not put the tv on channel 4.Some dvd/vcr's put their signals out on channel 3 and others on channel 4.Good luck.
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.
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.
check your connections on the back of the tv and back of the dvd player.
make sure you are using the proper conections on the back of the tv. if you connect the RCA (composite) cables (red yellow white) you should be going from the red yellow white on the tv to the red yellow white on the dvd player. if you have the component(red blue green) connection on the dvd connected to the red yellow white on the tv, you may get a black and white picture. If this does not work, check the manual for the dvd player and see if there is a way to turn "Progressive Scan" features off, some older TV's cannot handle a progressive scan dvd player.
