How do i put it to play dvd player

  • Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.

  • 2

    Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.

  • Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

  • 4

    Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.

  • 5

    Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.

    It won't play dvd's in color

    Please check the type of disc that you're playing.

    Generally, if the NTSC format disc being played in PAL Player or vice versa will cause this issue. Please use the NTSC format disc in NTSC player and PAl disc in PAL player.

    Please check if the Player is connected to the display device with the correct cables and to the correct jacks.

    Please make sure to connect the Component OUT (Red, Blue, Green cables) to the Component IN (Red, Blue, Green).

    If you are using the Compiste connection (Yellow, Red and White), please connect the Video OUT of the Player to the Composite or Video IN on the TV using the Yellow cable and Red and white for audio according to the color codings.

    Please try with different jacks on the TV to confirm if the issue is with the Jacks on the TV.

    Please try power resetting the TV and check if that helps.

    Turn off the Player.
    Unplug the Player power cord from the electrical outlet.
    Let the Player remain without power for 60 seconds.
    Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
    If the issue is still unresolved, the Player needs to be Serviced at the Authorized Service Center.

    How do i get my sons dvd player in color. it plays every movie in black and white

    Make sure the connection to the TV is correct. Yellow(video) jack from the DVD player will go to yellow jack of the TV, white to white(audioL) and red to red(audioR) for compsite audio/video connection. Red to red, green to green and blue to blue for component connection.

    Movie has no red color only green and yellow

    Remove & re-seat the component video cables at both the TV and the DVD player.

    If the problem continues, disconnect BOTH ends of the BLUE cable and the RED cable. Connect the BLUE cable to the RED jack at both the DVD and TV, and connect the RED cable to the BLUE jack ob both the TV and DVD. If the RED color comes back and the BLUE is missing, then replace the RED cable (the red cable is broken and will not pass the signal that it is connected to).

    If all works, reconnect the colored cables to the corresponding colored jacks at both the TV and DVD player.

    If the RED color still won't display, isolate the trouble to either the DVD player or TV by connecting the DVD to another TV w/ component jacks. If the RED is still missing, it is a problem inside the DVD player - if the RED displays, it is a problem with the TV.

    Good luck!

    Cannot get DVD's to play on our TV.

    It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has; here are a few of the most common, all of which your DVD player supports (best quality first):

    1) COMPONENT VIDEO (Red, Green, Blue)
    If your TV has three inputs for video colored red, green, and blue, this is your best bet for quality video from your DVD player. You may need to buy a component video cable from the store (somewhat pricey, but great quality) which consists of three cables (again, red, green, and blue) stuck together. Just plug the red/green/blue cables into their correspondingly-colored ports on both the DVD player and the TV.
    That covers your video. To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the red/green/blue cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

    2) COMPOSITE VIDEO (Yellow)
    If your TV has a yellow input for video, just use a regular yellow RCA cable. Plug it into the yellow video-out jack on the DVD player, then plug the other end into the yellow video-in jack on the TV.
    To set up audio, you just need some regular red/white RCA cables. On the DVD player, plug the red/white cables into the correspondingly-colored audio out jacks NEAREST to the yellow cable you used earlier for video, then plug the other end into the audio in red/white jacks on the TV.

    3) COAXIAL JACK (Antenna port)
    If your TV only has a coaxial jack that you currently plug your antenna or cable line into, you'll need to buy an RF modulater and a short length of coaxial cable (you can find these anwhere: Walmart, Radio Shack, etc).
    Plug the RF modulater into an electrical outlet, then plug your antenna/cable line into the "antenna in" jack on the RF modulater. Take the coaxial cable that you just bought and plug it into the "antenna out" jack on the RF modulater, then plug the other end into the antenna/cable jack on the TV. The RF modulater should have a switch on it somewhere that sets either the number 3 or 4; depending on which number you pick, that's the channel that your TV has to be switched to to view the DVD player.
    Now you're all set to connect to your DVD player. Just follow the instructions in section (2), only now you're going to plug your cables in the RF modulater instead of the TV.
    (I hope this wasn't too confusing; it really is a lot simpler in practice than it is in explanation...)

    Colors wrong on DVD player

    The problem is with the cabling, assuming you are using component cables please make sure that the cables are in the proper locations (red to red, green to green, blue to blue) and firmly seated. There are also issues with using cables of various lengths where the signals to not all arrive at the same time.

    We just received a big screen tv as a gift and we want to hook up our dvd player and our vcr and have lost the manuals. HELP

    You can hook your dvd player in tv by using component video input terminal having green-red-blue colors for video signal and red-white for audio signal. so total 5 wires been used here. color order should be exact at both units, tv and dvd player i.e green to green, blue to blue and so on.

    vcr can be hooked at composite video input in tv having 3 pins, yellow for video, red-white for audio in both units, vcr and tv. pins color should be exact on both units.

    need further help, post here please.

    Dvd showing in black and white

    I'm assuming you're using the yellow ended video cable and two audio cables hooked up to your TV to display the signal. If so, I would just make sure they are connected in the correct output jacks on your dvd player and that they match up with the input jacks on your TV. If so, then I'd try another DVD player to see if that one plays OK.
