When I turn on my Digix DVD player, even before I put in a DVD disc, the picture rolls vertically. The player will accept a DVD disc and start it playing, but the picture continues to roll vertically then too. Remember the vertical hold control on older TVs? That is what I am talking about. I do not know of a vertical hold control button for my DVD player.
Found my DVD user manual online then went on here and found the answer. Was going to pitch player out and then I reset the...nspc/ pal /auto... setting by pushing a button ( NP ) on the DVD player remote and now it's working fine with no vertical row..."so far"...LOL

Some units have a small hole right below where the tray opens ,you can put a paper clip in it and push to open the door.If yours doesn't have this try turning the power off for 10 seconds and turning back on,if you are using a remote to work the player try using the buttons on front of the player.Good Luck and I hope that this helps you..
If you have red, white and yellow on each match those and use a cable with 3 strands - red, yellow and white ends with RCA jacks. Use the setup key to get an onscreen display to set options. Make sure they are the video/audio OUT on the DVD not in.
On your TV it's probably Video 1 or something like that - you can usually test this by putting the cables into the front of the TV. The TV remote might have some key like TV/Video to get to the Video input screen. Make sure you check the video-in ports on the TV - not the video/audio-out.
Option if red is missing
If the DVD player just has yellow and white then just connect yellow and white (it will be mono) on the TV.
It shouldn't matter if the holes are vertical or horizontal.
If both TV and DVD have S-video ports then connect those - they will give you better video than the yellow.
You will still need to connect red and white sound cables.
The picture rolling is simply because the PAL decoder can't lock up to the 60Hz vertical sync pulses, even if your DVD player is set to NTSC-PAL conversion and there is no vertical hold adjustment (either external or internal) on this model set to achieve this.
There is a possible alternative only if your DVD player has RGB output (not component). The JVC for example has direct RGB drive capability via the SCART input on the back panel. If you get a suitable lead you could try getting a picture this way as it bypasses the decoding and sync sep circuits in the PAL decoder chip.
