Re: Unable to get sound when connecting DVD player to TV

Connect one end of white cable to dvd/vcr audio output and the other end of white cable to tv audio input L .
connect one end of yellow cable to video output on dvd/vcr and the other end of yellow cable to video input jack on tv

If you connect like this after checking you connections this should fix problem.

How do i connect dvd to tv?

there are usually two or three connections used by modern players, HDMI ( component( and composite (the yellow video in last link) you connect the device to your tv with a compatible cable between the two and change the tv to the proper input. The tv will usually have labels on the back to tell you which input is being used. If you have an audio amplifier then you must refer to your manual to figure out the proper pass though.

How do I connect my lg drt389h dvd recorder to my ferguson fl26wx1 tv. I can play dvd's but i'm unable to record anything from my sky box.

Hi, When you bought your DVD player it comes with 1 type of cable. RCA type cable 2 audio and 1 video. Yellow for video and red and black for audeo. Your TV should have RCA plugs on back and match them up with DVD player. Most DVD player now come with optical out put, TV must have input to complete. If you have that you can get better sound from them. Good luck

We're not getting any sound from the dvd's. I have two cables (green/blue/red) and (red/white). but I'm at a loss how to connect from DVD to TV. Help please!

If your TV has the green, blue, red inputs then connect these 3 cables for the picture. DVD to TV, green to green, blue to blue and red to red. If your TV only has a yellow input, then connect the green cable only from the DVD yellow to the TV yellow. Now for the sound. Connect the DVD white to the TV white. Connect the DVD red to the TV red with the red cable. The white and red inputs will be next to the yellow and the green, blue, red inputs on the TV. Next select the TV input using your TV remote. Select the input for the DVD connection.

I'm confused how to connect my DVD player with the TV. which cables connect where. I dont have a user manual.


good day,to connect your DVD to TV screen follow this steps.

1) prepare your RCA cable ( 3 colored cable yellow/red/white)
note: always remember this

yellow = video
red and white = Audio (left and right)

2) at the back or front display of your TV screen you'll see RCA socket marked as "AV1 input" "AV2 input" etc... if your screen is only mono sound you can only see two sockets Yellow=video white= audio

3) at the back of your DVD player connect the RCA cable following the color code yellow to yellow white to white and red to red. after you connect the cable to your dvd player now connect the other end of thr RCA to your TV screen input.

make sure you'll connect it to "A/V input" not "A/V out" then after connecting all the cables, from the remote commander of your TV screen press a button indicating "A/V" some mark as "TV/AV" press this button until your screen display the back ground display of your DVD player.

How to change from tv to dvd mode

the difference between tv and av, is that av has no showers on the screen. if you change to av you will notice a blue screen, connect your yellow on vedio output and white/ red on audio out of tv
note- before connecting to a vedio touch a tip of your vedio cable some lines will show on your screen, if touch your audio tip harming noise will sound on your tv. if this two happens then you know that your cables are okey. hold your channel button on your tv, channel will start runing after all rf channels finish, tv will go to av.
