The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work
Make sure the yellow RCA cable is connected in both the DVD player and TV. Make sure the TV is on the proper input that you see the DVD player connected to. If you're getting sound and no picture, try using new/different RCA cables.
Hi, When you bought your DVD player it comes with 1 type of cable. RCA type cable 2 audio and 1 video. Yellow for video and red and black for audeo. Your TV should have RCA plugs on back and match them up with DVD player. Most DVD player now come with optical out put, TV must have input to complete. If you have that you can get better sound from them. Good luck
Ok, this seems to be a common problem amongst us techno-phobic couch potatos ( just kidding), sounds like tv input is not selected on right channel input. make sure pins on s-video are not bent or missing, if they are, you need a new s-video cable, try connection through the red/white/yellow cables, make sure that you have correct input selected on tv set ( example: S-video, component1 , aux 1,HDMI1, and so on.) put dvd in player and keep going till you get the right one. in ,my experience, the R/W/Y cable is component1 and of course, s-video, is well, s-video, kinda self explanatory...
In order of best to worst quality, and depending on which connectors both have.
1. Hdmi ( Video and Sound in one cable )
2. RGB also known as color stream (Red,Blue, and Green RCA ) Sound Seperate ( Red and White RCA )
3. Composite ( Yellow RCA ) Sound Seperate ( Red and White RCA ) sometimes mono (single sound RCA)
4. COAX (cable) which most DVD players don't have.
All RCA connections on devices should be center color coded And grouped by connection Video 1 Video 2 ect.
If the cable tv has audio out jacks, or if you have a cable box with an optical audio cable, plug either the audio jacks into the RCA system or the optical audio cable, and the system should automatically simulate 5.1, through Dolby Pro Logic II. All speakers will not be at the same volume as they are simulating surround sound, not just playing the audio.
The TV will never have sound for the DVD as this system has no audio out puts. Realistically, most televisions have 10w speakers, and this system is 130w, so the TV speakers are useless in comparison.
Hmmmm...I dont understand exactly what you are saying, but it sounds like your TV doesnt have RCA ports and you want to hook up a newer DVD player that uses RCA ports. If you have only a cable port (silver threads with a hole sticking out of back) on TV and RCA ports on DVD player, you have to buy a converter. You can get one at Wal-Mart for 20-30 dollars. Or you can just update your TV which it sounds like you badly need to do! :)
