This is usually an issue with the component cables running to the TV. Remove the cables and retry with different component cables. If this doesn't fix the issue, its a problem with the DVD player itself.
As far as DVD players go, you've done quite well keeping yours going for 11 years. A cheap DVD player at the local big box electronics store here costs about $30, definitely not breaking the bank getting a new one.
DVD players do not connect using regular cable connections Your flat screen TV should have separate Audio and Video connections. These are the connections that you should use to connect your VCR and DVD player. If you have a combo unit, that is a single unit that has both DVD and VHS in one box, you might be able to get your VCR to work on the cable connection. However your DVD will not be able to work as the cable connection doesn't allow enough information to pass through. If you go to your local Audio Video store and tell them what you want to connect they should have the cables you need for less than $10.00. Good luck.
Hi my name is Eric,
I hope I can help you with your issue ,
Do you have a cable box?
First thing i think of is you need to reboot the cable box by unplugging it from AC power, then reconnect it. (then reboot the Tv same way if haven't done that yet either) then its time to try it with AV cables
to make sure the cable box is not bad. using the red/white and yellow cables
then testing with another source like a DVD player, common sense will tell you if its the cable box or the TV.
If you've already done this or don't have a cable box (sorry),
The only thing in the TV that can cause you to lose audio only on TV is the SAP mode.
Hope this helps, if it has solved your issue please click accept
But if you have more questions please respond and I will reply asap
that's a firmware problem where your tv's firmware does not handshake with your dvd's firmware. This could be from your dvd's software being to old for your tv to understand it. HDMI (TDMS Technology) still has Alot of catching up too do with 3rd generation tv's. Alot of HDMI devices still have the first gen software loaded into them. So a tv after 2005 won't work with HDMI from 2003 (1st gen). Most tv's made after 2007 have software that's "backward compatible" so they will work with first gen HDMI.
