It seems to be random, but occasionally I'll put in a dvd and it will play the video fine, but give no audio output - and its not consistent - a dvd that one day wont play sound wil play perfectly normally the next day, or even later the same day, and one that plays normally will later give no sound, then later play sound fine again.
I have had this happen with this particular brand frequently. I have it plugged in to a power "strip" or surge protector. I find that if I turn the strip off then on again, it resets and fixes the problem.

I hope you are connecting 5 RCA jacks when using the component video out. HDMI cable carries both audio and video over one single cable but the component video has 5 jacks, 3 for video ( Red/Blue/Green ) and 2 for audio ( Red/White ).
You will need to the remote to perform these functions. if you have it that's great, if not you willneed to contac Toshiba for a replacement. I ahve a manual for you to print out and keep with the unit. It shows you how to access the menu and to activate random mode..
If your unit is fairly new,your VCR part might be the problem.Take it back! If you have this unit for awhile,two things: 1. You need a professional A/V repair guy to clean up and check your VCR head. 2. The rental VHS tape is dirty. Good luck!
Obviously the unit is playing the disk because your audio is fine, and getting some kind of black & white picture out of the composite, means that the video processor is probably ok.
The most likely things to check then is the yellow video cable, (just swap the red or white in place of the yellow on both the DVD and your tv to test), or possibly the yellow RCA jack on the back of your DVD has gotten loose. If you have not done so, try wiggling it gently to see if your video comes back. If it does, and you are handy with a soldering iron, you can probably repair it yourself. Other than that, it would be a problem for a repair shop. (and a strange one!)
Hope this helps, and good luck!
