    The DVD player has sound with my regular headphones.

    This is the back of my DVD player



    Right side of the TV which is where I have the RCA audio cable inserted (per instructions in the manual)



    The left side of the TV. I tried plugging on this side too, but no luck.

    Not using the RCA cable, just a regular headphone jack to the front of the VCR.

Here's what I'd do:

Determine if the DVD player is in fact outputting sound by:
-Plugging the DVD player in to a couple TV's with as many RCA cables as you can

See if TV is accepting RCA audio:
Try anything else you have with the RCA cables (other DVD players, old VCR, Headphone -> RCA adapter (then you could use an ipod/computer/whatever to output a good sound source))

Also, I know with a lot of HDTV's you have to push the cables in pretty hard.

    Which output are you using on your DVD player to get sound to your headpones? The RCA jack?

    if you have an amp you could probably get audio that way...

    do you have a spare vga cable? Usually you can hook up the VGA cable and and a standard headphone jack for sound (which you would use the RCA to headphone jack adapter)

    Also, you can buy a cheap HDMI cable online for like $20

    Or buy an optical cable.

    Does your TV have a headphone jack?



    Try DVD -> TV with this:


    or

    DVD -> TV with this



    Some TV's will only accept the 3.5-mm stereo plug (that is the standard headphone plug for all mp3 players, computers, etc) if the TV is in a specific INPUT mode so try them all


    .... ACTUALLY

    If you can get sound through your VCR player.... do this

    Use the DVD -> VCR like you did before, then VCR Audio out to TV Audio in ... it's pretty ghetto but it might work!

Yeah sometimes we all get fustrated with stuff like that, the trick is not to hit the thing with a hammer,,

any way ensure that yougot the cables connected propperly in the L/R audio output from the dvd player (RED AND WHITE its alo labeled) and connect it to the in in the tv..

check your player settings (audio settings and and check your tv audio settings to ensure they match) some HDTV's only use 5.1 or higher

if your dvd remote got a volume controll on it ensure the u\volume is all the way up and that it isnt muted.

try your player on a next tv to ensure its working , if it is the problem is with your settings as stated above

Rca model rtd3266 won't produce aux audio through the tv even though we have hooked up the red and white cables. It only playes the surround sound when you watch the dvd.


I believe you have misunderstood something. The audio output from your TV is stereo. Your RCA system produces surround output from your TVs stereo input.

RCA DRC247N DVD Player No Audio


The separate DVD player has three output cables: video (yellow), right audio (red) and left audio (white?). These connect to the corresponding inputs on the TV. If your cable box also has three similar output cables, you probably do not have a second set of inputs on the TV so what to do? You can purchase three Y adapters that combine two female RCA connectors into one RCA plug and plug everything into your one set of connectors on the TV. However, if your cable box output connects directly to the TV antenna input, the solution is simpler. Post a comment if this approach is not going to work

Hook up


Hi:
This type of hook up is only for television viewing, to view the DVD you might consider purchasing some componet cables, they are color coded so hooking up is a snap, on the back of the DVD player you will see three RCA type connections Red/Green/Blue. componet cables are also these colors, connect one end of the cables to it coorsponding color on the back of your DVD and the other in the same color connectors labeled componet 1 input on the back of your television. You will also need a red and white RCA connector also for the audio as this is sound, a total of 5 connections will complete the hook up. Or you can go the simple route and use RCA type cables that come as yellow/red/white but for the best picture use componet cables this will allow you to watch your movies in HD.

RCA DRC277-A, No sound when played through a Samsung HDTV using the HDMI chord. Chord and TV seem to check out fine. Tried all buttons and menus I could find. Have set sound to PCM, etc.


There might be a setting in your tv's audio menu to enable your audio source, which is now hdmi (vs. the rca-type red and white audio cables). Once you select the type of audio you are using, the audio, you should hopefully be able to get sound from your dvd player now.

DVD player and receiver will not play a dvd in surround sound ?


The dvd player is responsible for reading the surround sound track, and sending it to the receiver. First make sure you are playing the surround sound track on the dvd, many have a stereo track too. Next, try another dvd and see if you can play surround sound on that one. If you can't play surround on ANY dvd I would start looking at the audio connection from dvd to receiver. Are you using an optical cable? Red, white, and yellow RCA cables? Optical will transmit any sound over only one cable, RCA cables need one cable for each channel (LF, C, RF, LR, RR, sub.) If your connections are correct, is the receiver set to play a surround sound track? Is it set in 2 channel mode?
