Re: getting sound from DVD player but not a picture

Are you sure all cables are secure in the back and that all cables are in their appropriate place?

It could also be other variables dealing with the actual signal from the cable company. I have had an experience with an unshielded coax cable that was tweaking out due to a thunder storm.

Post back after you have checked all cables and also call your cable company to see if there are any problems with the broadcast currently, as that could be a cause.

Best of luck.

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.

I am trying to hook up the mvd2016 to a visio tv that is hooked to our cable converter box. I hooked it up, i have the tv but no sound.

your RCA jacks from the DVD player....should be connected to the Vizio a/v 1 in the back of TV (yellow to yellow, red & white to red & white)... now to view using the remote to TV switch to a/v (play a DVD, you should now have a picture and sound)

Hdmi not working

You need to set up the out put of your DVD player. First hook up a non hdmi output to the tv, either component or coax. You don't need to hook up the audio. You should get a picture from this connection. Then you can go into the menu and set your hdmi output to match your tv, probably 1080i. You may have to turn your volume up higher when using the hdmi cable than not. I hooked my audio up directly to a surround sound and don't use the tv's speakers.
