Well, i had a look at the back of that Toshiba TV - make sure that the red, white, and yellow cables are hooked into the Video-1 slot of the Toshiba and that the Toshiba channel is changed to Video 1.
Then check your nameless DVD player and make sure the red, white, and yello cables are all hooked to OUTPUT slots that are in the same column or row - if I had you DVD manufacturer and model #, I could suggest some additional steps to check. Also, make sure your dvd player is in dvd playback mode.

Hook up the yellow RCA cord at the Video-in at the back of the TV and the other end at the Video out of the DVD player to get the video.

Hook up the red RCA cord at the Audio-in(right channel) at the back of the TV and the other end at the Audio-out of the DVD player.
Hook up the white/black RCA cord at the Audio-in(left channel) at the back of the TV and the other end at the Audio-out of the DVD player.

Red and white/black RCA cord is for the sound.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

How do I hook up a DVD player to a proscan 32 inch flat screen tv?


Hello,

to connect your TV to your DVD, you will be needing a RCA wire (Yellow, white and Red wire). The yellow stands for video (visual/display), while the read and white stands for audio (sound).

Look at the back of your DVD, look out for Video Out, connect the yellow wire there. Also look out for Audio Out L & R, connect the white and red wire there.

Then turn the back of your TV, you will find Video, and Audio IN, Connect the other part of the wires from the DVD to the DVD, that is, Video for video and audio for audio.

Once you have connected the wires, turn on your TV, and your DVD player, press source on your TV remote to AV, and you will see your DVD displaying on your TV.

That's to hook up your DVD to your TV. Follow instructions carefully and you won't have any problem.

Good luck.

I hooked up the dvd but I get a picture but no sound


audio cables need to be hooked up as well not just a video cable.
usually red and white and clearly colored on the output side of the dvd player and the tv. input is on the tv output is on the dvd, also if you are using a fiber connection (optical sound) you will need a fiber cable from the dvd to the tv.

New toshiba lcd has sound, is getting all cable


Hi,
What kind of video connections are you using to hook up the cable and the dvd player? Also does the menu of the tv come up normally? Once I have more information I can assist you further. Worst case scenario you will end up needing to return it for a replacement where you bought it from but lets do a little troubleshooting first.
Thank you,
Lee

I have a 42 inch Insignia plasma tv. I only hook


If you have the audio cables hook up correctly to where the video cable from DVD is connected to, it should be RED and WHITE wires for audio. Then go to on screen audio setup menu to see if the speakers is turn off in the menu. Also try hooking up the powered PC speakers to the AUDIO LINE out RCA jacks to see if you get the sound OK there.

When i hook up dvd player to a insignia plasma tv i get a picture & sound but it is in black&white.how do i get to be color


if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..

Flat screen to dvd connection help!


It depends on the TV.

On my Phillips TV this is switchable via the TV setup menu, and you get no sound with HDMI unless you change that setting.

The reason it's switchable is that the HDMI input is usually common with one of the component-video inputs (AV3 on mine). (cost saving move)

Thus if the menu is set to hdmi, then the audio goes thru hdmi. If it's set to 'component' then it goes thru the RCA patch cable.

Remove Base from Toshiba Regz 42RV530U


I bought this LG flat TV at Circuit City last week. TV is okay, but I was trying to hook up my portable DVD player and I can not make it work. I can hear the sound that coming out from the DVD but theres no picture from the screen. I believe my connection is correct, because there is the color coding which is red, yellow and white which you just connect at the back of the TV and at the DVD player.

Can anyone help me to figure out the problem. thanks a lot
