Have you changed the input of your TV unit to AV1, AV2 or component...or what ever? If so and yet the problem prevails, then try to Plug the AV cable to the input of your Cable Box, if it has so.

You connect up a DVD to a TV via the Audio Visual leads, they go into the Red White, the Audio, & Yellow, the composite Video. In & Out. They wire color to color. Then you select AV on the TV. & press Play on DVD.

Check the input selector on the TV, if you have audio only then it is a cable problem,
that means that cables are not connected in the right way.

Hook up

This type of hook up is only for television viewing, to view the DVD you might consider purchasing some componet cables, they are color coded so hooking up is a snap, on the back of the DVD player you will see three RCA type connections Red/Green/Blue. componet cables are also these colors, connect one end of the cables to it coorsponding color on the back of your DVD and the other in the same color connectors labeled componet 1 input on the back of your television. You will also need a red and white RCA connector also for the audio as this is sound, a total of 5 connections will complete the hook up. Or you can go the simple route and use RCA type cables that come as yellow/red/white but for the best picture use componet cables this will allow you to watch your movies in HD.

Inexpensive S-video cable is OK?

If you dont have a hi tech theater setup you could almost use jumper wires, BUT yes, the cheap on would work just fine and you would'nt notice the differance from the cheapo one to the expensive type.
