Our tv is connected to a vcr and a dvd player. The cables are correctly installed for audio and video, input and output. The sound is fine for the tv alone, or through the vcr. There is no sound for the dvd player (although the picture is crystal clear through VIDEO 2 on tv). The dvd remote does not have a separate volume control. We had this problem when we first installed the dvd player a couple of months ago. The customer support person at Philips/Magnavox told us immediately what button to reset, and all is well. Again it has no sound and Philips/Magnavox folks now do not have a clue. Any suggestions?
Re: no sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr
I had a problem and all above solutions did not work (although kpsmith gave me the idea) so I took dvd out, went to setup menu on dvd player and selected audio. There is an audio reset which allows you to turn HDMI AUDIO ON/OFF. Select for this to be turned on and hey presto!!! (hopefully). Thanks for getting me started kpsmith - hope my finding can help someone :)
Re: no sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr
The problem has been fixed for me. We had some guys come and look at it, and It turns out there was a problem with some part in our TV, but the part isn't made anymore so we ended up getting a TV exchange. It was not that old a set so there was still a warranty on it.

Hi,first of all I assume that your Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player has the recording features as well..othervise you cant do anything"NEGATIVE" ..If yes than follow the procedure below.. If
you want to record your TV program while watching to your DVD/VCR system
you need to connect "Video - Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV or CABLE box to "Audio-Video input or "Optic Cable input" of the DVD There you go..Your TV's video and sound is on the DVD/VCR Dual Player Receiver..of course your DVD source input should correspond with the jacks you used on the back...push "RECORD" button it should start for recording the coming signal into DVD when you recording the output RCA jacks of DVD will generate the signal of whatever records that can be monitored with another TV set after properly connected.. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for Helping out the Community :) Hope this helps!
I might sound stupid but Double check that you`ve connected the correct connectors as in All Inputs plugs being used or All outputs plugs being used. If you have one of these leads with 6 connectors on one lead, (Audio Input L+R, Video Input, Audio Output L+R, Video Output) You need to make sure that if you get sound from the audio input plugs, then you must use the video input plug and vice verse.

The cable box IS an external tuner. You should connect the video output (either S video, HDMI, or component video) of the cable box to the video input of the DVD. Then connect the audio output of the cable box to the audio input of the DVD via stereo RCA cables. If your tv monitor has multiple inputs (ie: video 1, 2, and 3...) connect the video and audio output of the DVD to your tv monitor using an alternate video input (if cable box goes into your tv thru video 1, connect the DVD to video 2). If your cable box only has one output, or your tv has only one input, then just connect your cable box to the DVD as above, and connect the DVD to your tv.
If you have a VCR with RCA inputs and coax (cable) output to TV, try plugging the DVD players RCA outputs (L/R audio, composite video) to VCR RCA inputs. Then select the DVD input on the VCR and it shoud play just as a the VCR does. If you don't have a VCR, an RF modulator might be needed, but a VCR would probably be cheaper.
If the original TV doesn't have audio/video inputs, you'll need a DVD/VCR player that has a built-in RF modulator. A RF modulator takes the audio & video and modulates a RF carrier to one of the channels that your TV can receive. In the U.S., this is usually channel 3 or 4. If the DVD/VCR player has a built-in tuner, connect your cable to the RF input of the DVD/VCR player and the RF Output of the DVD/VCR player to the cable input of the TV. This way, you can receive your cable channels through the DVD/VCR player and watch movies as well. If your DVD/VCR player does not have a built-in tuner, you can put a RF switch inline that will allow your TV to either receive the cable signal or signal from the DVD/VCR player.
Audio: There should be a set of audio outputs on your TV. Connect those to the AUX inputs of your receiver. When you turn on your receiver, set it to AUX. Set your TV volume to approx 1/3 and adjust the volume on your receiver. There's probably a menu section on the TV to turn off your TV speakers so the sound will only come from your receiver.
DVD/VCR (I'll call it DVD from this point forward): Connect the video (yellow) output from the DVD to the "video input" on the back of the TV. Connect the audio out on the DVD player (red) to the red audio input on the back of the TV, then do the same with the other audio (white). When you want to use your DVD player, you'll select "input 1" as the input on the TV.
Cable: Your cable box probably has numerous output types. I have the cable box hooked up to both the DVD player AND to the TV; one output type going to the DVD player and another output type going to the TV. I like to use the HDMI output from the cable box to the TV, and the composite video from the cable box to the DVD.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.
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.
