Re: Having problems connecting dvd player to my tv


Normally a DVD's output would be:
Yellow - video
White - audio left (in some models mono)
Red - audio right

Based on your post/description, your movies will play normally. You simply left out the red (right output) hence you will not get stereo effect (which is immaterial since your TV is mono).

The correct procedure calls that you connect the red & white to a stereo amplifier.

Alternately, you can use the adapter shown below to connect the white & red and make them a single RCA male out.


Hope this be of use/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have a very old tv the kind that has a huge back side well I bought a new DVD player and it will not connect to my tv it says I need a component cable on the DVD player I just don't know which one I have...

thats rite, white and your red is the audio wires, if not connected- you will have no sound. if it old tv it probably mono( only 1 audio input red) so you can only connect the red 1 and leave the white 1 out or by 2 to 1 spliter and connect both, white and red.
Good luck.

I am trying to get my combo player hooked up to my tv. I don't have the manual. I just want to be able to watch DVD's and VHS tapes.

Check the type of connections on your combo player and TV, there are likely two options for connection:
1st option = AV: 3 RCA connections (yellow, red, white)
2nd option = COMPONENT: 5 RCA connections (red, green, blue, red, white)
Get the appropriate cable and connect it to the available input on your TV. Unless you have an ancient TV from a few decades ago, it should at least have AV connection.

How do I connect my philips dvd750vr dvd player to my tv? (tv is a toshiba cx32f60). thanks


it all depends on the cord that you want to use. There are different cords that can be used to connect Tv to your player.

But I would recommend RCA cord. RCA cord is a Yellow, white and red wires. The yellow stands for video, while the white and red stands for audio left and right.

Look at the back of your TV, connect the yellow part of the cord to Video IN, the connect the red and white to Audio IN respectively.

Now, connect the other end of the wires to the player in the format; Connect the yellow to video Out, the connect the red and white to audio Out, respectively.

Turn on your TV and Player. Press source or AV on the TV remote and a display of the DVD will appear on the screewn of your TV.
That would be all.

If you still have difficulty in connecting, please let me know so that I can help further.

Yours sincerely.

My diamond dvd player DVDV804-03 has a verticle rolling of the screen.. any ideas?

It sounds like you've activated the p-scan or progressive scan. If you're connected to your TV using yellow, red, and white cables and the pscan gets activated, it cause the exact problem you're having. PSCAN is only to be used when you connect a DVD player to a TV using component cables which are red, blue, and green.

Dvd player to tv

To just connect to watch movies, an HDMI cable would be the easiest and give the best picture, otherwise you can use just regular AVI cables (Yellow,red,white) and connect them to OUT on the DVD and on the TV you connect to an avilable INPUT or IN, Its not difficult, but the HDMI is the way to go if you have HDTV.
Pleas give me a good rating if this helps solve your problem. Thanks

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)

Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)

where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

Connecting dtv box to vcr to dvd to the tv

you can hook the cable box into the vcr and then out of the vcr into the spliter which will turn your tv red/white/yellow signel input into two inputs( you can get this at most radio shacks for about $7.00 dollors) this leaves you with one more input for the dvd player
Please rate my response and come back if you need more help!

Hd tv to vcr

What model and manufacturer DVD/VCR combo are you using. if it has a HDMI port, you should buy a HDMI cable to your combo player than to your HDTV (most don't have this High Definition port.) 6f3606c.jpg
 otherwise, it probably contains a composite port, connect the red to the red (Left) white to white (mono) and yellow to yellow (Video) than connect the wires to the matching port on your HDTV) then switch the input to AV or Composite. 9701d83.jpgb5e3eb0.jpg

If this fails, you need a coaxial cable.85dec5e.jpgconnect a coaxial cable to your player then to the coaxial port on your tv. change the input to "either Coaxial, Cable 3 or any input that sets it to coaxial input.
