Assuming your cables are good and hooked up correctly, check the internal settings for the DVD. If you are using a composit cable, change the video input to composit. If you are using component connections, change it to component. If you are using HDMI, change it to HDMI. Your problem will be solved--instantly.

If you are connecting your DVD player with a DVI connector, make sure that none of the pins are bent on either end of the cable. If you can find another cable, try it. If this doesn't help you, I will need more information about your problem.

I just bought an L G DP122 DVD player from WalMart--where I purchased my Emerson flat screen TV--and I CANNOT hook up the DVD player to my TV--the DVD will NOT play. My DVD Player has three (3)...

Make sure tv input is set for the slot you plugged the DVD
into.On the tv remote you will find inputs.Just change for the right one.
Most of the time DVD player is working when TV is on channel 2 or 3 .

You have 3 options coming out from the DVD player:

1) Composite (Yellow, White, Red)
2) S-Video (Round and Black)
3) Component (Red, Green, Blue)

Composite is the easiest, as both video and audio are taken care of through the 3 connectors.

S-Video has slightly higher quality, but is largely outdated and requires a separate audio cable.

Component has the best quality, but also requires a separate audio cable.

If you have a composite cable (it should have come with the DVD player), then just hook up the Yellow/White/Red cable from the back of the DVD player to the same color connectors on the back of your TV.

S-Video and Component connect in the same manner (respective color to respective color), but you'll need to determine whether your TV can support a separate audio input or not.

Hooked up dvd sr200p to color...

If you are connected useing the component video cords (red,blue,green,red,white) it sounds as if you have the red,blue or green cords connected to the wrong color of jacks on the back of the TV or the DVD player, recheck your connections.
If all is good there, maybe one of those cords are bad?
The Sony DVP-SR200P DVD player is on the bottom end of their model line up, and you may have received a bad one right out of the box!

How to connect dvd player to tv

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.

Movie has no red color only green and yellow

Remove & re-seat the component video cables at both the TV and the DVD player.

If the problem continues, disconnect BOTH ends of the BLUE cable and the RED cable. Connect the BLUE cable to the RED jack at both the DVD and TV, and connect the RED cable to the BLUE jack ob both the TV and DVD. If the RED color comes back and the BLUE is missing, then replace the RED cable (the red cable is broken and will not pass the signal that it is connected to).

If all works, reconnect the colored cables to the corresponding colored jacks at both the TV and DVD player.

If the RED color still won't display, isolate the trouble to either the DVD player or TV by connecting the DVD to another TV w/ component jacks. If the RED is still missing, it is a problem inside the DVD player - if the RED displays, it is a problem with the TV.

Good luck!

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.

DVD player won't work on my 27gt615


good day, if youre saying that you program the DVD to work on channel 2 or 4 does it mean you convert the signal of your dvd player from A/V output to RF out?

because the simpliest way to connect your DVD player to TV screen is by using RCA cable ( 3 wired cable being color marked as yellow/red/white) yellow = video red and white = audio

the connection would be: from dvd back part you'll see colored socket yello/red and white. connect the RCA to those socket following the same color .

and from the TV screen there should be A/V input socket. can be locate at the BACK/Side or FRONT of the screen marked as
"INPUT" ( AV1, AV2,AV3 if multiple inputs). Then select which input you want to place your DVD player ex.AV1 (from AV1 there will be 3 scoket in a row, yellow/red/white)

Connect the other end of your RCA cable following the same color code to TV "AV1 INPUT" yellow = yello/red =red/white=white. then from the remote commander of your TV screen locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "A/V" press this button until the screen display switch to AV1.

No color on dvd player

A cable could cause this problem. I would try using a standard RCA patch cable and go from the composite video output of the DVD player to a composite video input of the TV. See if that produces color. If not, the DVD may be at fault. On the other hand, if you get normal color, the S-video cable could be bad.

Hope this helps.

We just received a big screen tv as a gift and we want to hook up our dvd player and our vcr and have lost the manuals. HELP

You can hook your dvd player in tv by using component video input terminal having green-red-blue colors for video signal and red-white for audio signal. so total 5 wires been used here. color order should be exact at both units, tv and dvd player i.e green to green, blue to blue and so on.

vcr can be hooked at composite video input in tv having 3 pins, yellow for video, red-white for audio in both units, vcr and tv. pins color should be exact on both units.

need further help, post here please.

DVD playback color

When passing the video signal thru a VCR on the way to the TV, you are activating the DVD's "Macrovision" copy protection.  You need to hook it directly to the TV.
