it really doesnt matter what color the cables are as long as the one from video out on the dvd player is going to video in on the tv then the same for the sound.yellow is generally video and red would be your sound
I would need the exact model number to be sure, but there are 3 possibilities:
1) there are red, white and yellow (composite) cables plugged into a slot designed for red, green, and blue (component or YPbPr) cables
2) you have an S-Video cable AND another type of cable plugged into unit at same time
3)the progressive scan has been either activated or deactivated - read your manual to find out how to turn it off [warning: if I am wrong, then turning on the p-scan may cause you to lose picture which is difficult to reverse on some DVD models - I would definitely look into the other possibilities first]
if your cable box is digital it should have the yellow, white, red rca jacks in the back run those to the rear a/v input on your recorder then cycle through the input switch on the remote until you see the picture. (i have the same model i hope you have better luck with yours...i can't record on any new 4x or slower +rw disc i had mine since 2006 i should've got a sony!)
I have the same model and it works wonderful, but you need the remote control to record. connect cable from video out on recorder to video in on you tv. at least you'll be able to play the dvd. If this doesn't work it's because you need the remote to set the date and time features.
