Lets face it, some cheap equipment is just junk, -- you get what you pay for. If you can, return unit and exchange for a popular name brand. Sony has several models for less than $150 that rival more expensive models

How to hook up DVD player with TV

The owner manual for the player should have a diagram of connections but a basic hook up is:

1. look to connections on the player--most will have component (red,green,blue for picture and red and white for sound) match those outputs to the rear of the set with the same colored inputs.

OUTPUT from the player to the matching input on the set.

other possible connections include HDMI to HDMI if both have that, the HDMI can have sound issues but needs only one cable where component uses 5.

If you do not have the owner book Google the model number with "manual" to see if you can locate one.

I have an Insignia 42"

First, I would check the connection to see if everything is in it's proper place and plugged in nice and snug.
Second, I'd try watching something else on the TV and see how it looks, I'd also try watching something using the same cable/input the DVD player is using. If that fails, try a different cable.
If your TV checks out, and it's your DVD player, it might be time to upgrade to Blu-Ray or buy a new DVD player.
Hope this helps, cheers.

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.

(you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...

The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.

Use the A/V outs to the composite cable and connect to your Westinghouse A/V jacks.

On the Insignia player, press the Source button until you see A/V OUT on the insignia players screen.

Set your Westinghouse to the A/V input port you have connected the Insignia player to and should have picture and sound.

Hook up to tv

You need a device like a VCR or receiver that has Composite A/V inputs, and can convert the signal to what your TV requires (coaxial right?).

If you have a VCR or Digital Cable Box with A/V inputs, you can connect it to either of these devices and set them to A/V Input. Set the Insignia player to A/V Out by pressing the SOURCE button until it displays A/V OUT on the player screen.

You should be good to go.
