    Since I am totally ignorant on this, I will give it my best shot. I have plugged and unplugged so much I am not sure what is what. I was told by someone at Radio Shack they were composite...whatever that means.

  • mustangCathy Jan 12, 2008

    I don't think my cables are composite because they are red, blue and green. I have the manuel for the tv and the dvd player but it's like trying to read a foreign language. I appreciate your help and there is nothing wrong with your "strange hobby".

  • mustangCathy Jan 14, 2008

    I did as instructed but still no picture . It seems that the tv needs to be reprogrammed to work with that DVD player. I'm still working on it. I do appreciate all of your help.

  • mustangCathy Jan 16, 2008

    On the TV I have the red, blue and green plugged into component video input 2 and on the DVD player they are plugged into the red,blue and green. I have the red and white cable plugged directly under the r,b and green on the TV and plugged into line out on the DVD player. When I press the TV/Video button I do get a menu andI have tried using all of them. On that menu I have DVD listed under component and under Video 2 and I still can't get a picture. According to the manuel for the DVD player if I press shift+setup in order to get to the menu that would allow me to tell the DVD player what type of TV I have. That is where the problem is at this point,it doesn't show up on the TV.

  • mustangCathy Jan 16, 2008

    Actually you did help me. It came to me at 2 this morning...since everything else was working,it had to be a bad cable. I bought new component cables and now everything is working just fine. Thank you, Thank you!!!!

  • mustangCathy Jan 16, 2008

    Your persistence is what kept me trying. It was very frustrating but I refused to let it get the better of me. Thanks for all your help and suggestions. I think I will connect my red/white cables so that I can watch TV with surround sound.

  • C6DAN Sep 01, 2008

    When I hook the dvd to the components jacks using composit cables I get sound, picture, no color. If I hook the dvd up using component cables I get sound picture all blue in color. Tried adjustments in the tv menue no change. Can you help.

What kind of cables are you using to hook up the DVD to the TV? Are they they composite, component, or S-Video? What are the connectors you're plugging both ends of the cables into labeled? Are you plugging the audio cables into the TV or directly into the sound system?

    I meant to make this a request for information rather than a solution. Please do not rate it. Thank you.

  • ohiotom Jan 12, 2008

    OK, composite cables are the red, white and yellow cables. The red and white are used for audio and the yellow is for the video. You should connect the red, white, and yellow cables to the appropriate color jacks on the back of the DVD player. The connectors should be labeled output (if they're labeld at all). You might want to give me the make/model of your DVD player so I can look up the manual to see what connectors are on the back.

    You should run these cables to your TV and hook them to the back of your TV and plug them into the appropriate colored jacks on either the number 1 or number 2 input. If you don't have your TV manual, you can get it here:

    If you have a cable box it may already be hooked up to input number 1. In that case just plug the DVD into input 2. If both 1 and 2 are already used let me know.

    Your TV supports input from a variety of sources. When you want to watch one of those inputs (cable box, DVD player, VCR) you need to "tell" the TV that's the input you wish to watch. If you plugged your DVD player into input number 2 you'll need press the TV/Video button on your remote control until the TV shows you it's selected input is Video 2. If you used input 1 for the DVD then you would want to use Video 1. The TV/Video button will sequentially step through all the various inputs. Many of them will most likely be blank because there is nothing connected.

    Give this a shot and let me know if you have more questions. If you've hooked everything up properly and you're still getting only audio then there may be a problem with your DVD player, TV, or cables.

    If you found any of this helpful I hope you'll take a moment and give a positive rating. If you need more help just let me know.

    Thanks and good luck.

    I forgot to mention that I don't get paid for this or's a strange hobby but I like to help when I can.

  • ohiotom Jan 12, 2008

    The red,blue,green cables are called component cables. If you DVD player has component output you will see a set of red,blue, green jacks on it. You'll need to connect the component cables at the other end to the component input on the TV. Your component input is the 2nd column of connectors from the right on your TV. There should be a total of 5 input jacks in that column. The top three are for the video and this is where you'll hook your red,blue, green cable to the appropriate color jack.

    Component cables carry only the video portion of the signal. You'll need another two cables (1 red and 1 white) for the audio. They will connect to the audio output on your DVD and the audio input at on the TV (right beneath where you plugged in the component cables).

    Component cables will give you a better quality signal than the simplier composite cable set. Personally I cannot see the difference. Generally composite cables come with DVD players at no additional charge. You probably paid a good amount of money for the component cables at Radio Shack. The component cables will work fine if you wish to use them, but if it were me I would take them back and use the red, white, yellow composite cables that probably came with the DVD player.

    If you do decide to keep the component cables then the input you'll want to use on your TV will be labeled Input 2, Component Video.

    If you have more questions just let me know...

  • ohiotom Jan 14, 2008

    OK, I just realized that your home theater system is the DVD player. It's playing the sound directly to your home theater system.

    Please tell me exactly how you have the DVD player hooked up to the TV. What cables did you use and which jacks are they plugged into? Also, it looks like when you press the TV/Video button on your TV remote control a menu should pop up and then you get to pick the input. Is that working? What input are you selecting?

  • ohiotom Jan 16, 2008

    I found a "Frequently asked Questions" on the Panasonic website and the only thing it says about no picture on your Tv is to insure your component cables are connected to the correct jack on the TV and DVD player. In other words, make sure PR on the TV is connected PR on the DVD player as well as PB and Y begin on the right connection on both sides. If you've done that you should be seeing video when you select the Component input on the TV. If you don't then you have a bad DVD player, a bad cable, or a bad TV.

    if you double check all these and still get nothing I would contact the store where you purchased the equipment or Panasonic.

    I'm sorry I have not been able to help you with this more.

  • ohiotom Jan 16, 2008

    That's great news. Now that it's working I want to confuse you some more....just joking.

    I told you to connect an audio cable from the DVD player to the TV. This will allow you to hear the DVD audio through the TV speakers. I think many people who use home theater systems actually disable their TV's speakers so they will just hear the audio through the more capable home theater system speakers. When you put a DVD into your home theater system I'm sure it will automatically play the audio through it's own speakers, but when you watch TV you'll only be hearing sound from the TV itself. If you want to use your home theater speakers when you watch normal TV, you'll want to connect the red/white cable from the line-out on the TV to the line-in on the home theater system.

    What ever you decide to do, I'm very happy you got the video working. I know this was a frustrating experience for you and you should be proud of yourself for sticking with it.

How do I connect the DVD player to a Panasonic High Def Plasma TV?

Choose connections on the Panasonic that match those on the player--

Do you have on the player Component outs(blue,green,red and 2 audio which are red and white? This ought to give you the best picture and sound.

Other inputs to the set must match the ones coming from the player--Most owner manuals have a lot of details here.

If the player has 1080 output hook to a similar input on the set.

Some advice here: make the connections between units with both turned off.

I'm trying to hook up my Panasonic DVD player (model DVD-S29) to a Comcast cable box but have not been successful. My DVD player only has Audio Out connections, with no audio in connections. I...

the cable in should go to the box and cable out from the box to the TV.These should all be coaxial cables correct?Hook up the DVD player to the TV using the red,white,and yellow cables is also correct.In order to watch a DVD,you have to use the input select button on the remote for the TV ONLY to change inputs.If you have a universal remote for the TV and not the original factory remote provided with the TV,you need to use the menu button located on the outside of the TV.I just searched on my flat screen and was unable to find an input select through the menu button.It may not be possible on this TV if you do not have the original remote and if you own a universal.My universal for one of my older TV's is about 7 years old so I do not know if newer ones have an input select option.If they do not,it is most likely due to patents and royalty payments which these cheap remote makers do not want to pay.Anyhow,let me know if this helps.Just comment here and i will get an auto link to your comments.Good luck!

When hooking up to a new tv, the sound no longer

This all depends on how you connected the two. If you used the component cables then you've forgotten the audio cables. If you're using an s-cable then you've bent a pin or the connector is not centered. If you're using an Html connector then the cable may be bad but my money is on the DVD player being bad.
