Hooking up the dvd player to the new tv

I have hooked up the red to red, the white to white and the yellow to yello from the back of the dvd player to the tv. do i need a red, blue and green connectors also? did not need them on the old tv, just the one set was okay.

I see the extra color options between the two items. the directions do not state that I have to have them...help...

I HAD SAME PROBLEM. WHEN I WENT TO THE SETUP ON SCREEN MENU (#5) IT SHOWS THE DEFAULT FOR "VIDEO OUT" SHOULD BE "COMPONENT". MINE WAS ON "S-VIDEO". I CHANGED IT TO "COMPONENT" AND IT WORKED FINE.

No you don't need them. The red, blue, green wires are component cables for HD.

We're not getting any sound from the dvd's. I have two cables (green/blue/red) and (red/white). but I'm at a loss how to connect from DVD to TV. Help please!


If your TV has the green, blue, red inputs then connect these 3 cables for the picture. DVD to TV, green to green, blue to blue and red to red. If your TV only has a yellow input, then connect the green cable only from the DVD yellow to the TV yellow. Now for the sound. Connect the DVD white to the TV white. Connect the DVD red to the TV red with the red cable. The white and red inputs will be next to the yellow and the green, blue, red inputs on the TV. Next select the TV input using your TV remote. Select the input for the DVD connection.

I tried to hook up my dvd player and i get picture but no sound. when i put the cords in the back of the monitor there is yellow red blue green holes no white spot. Do i need different cords. I have tried...


That could be a result to that TV either not having the ports you need, or you may need different cords. On my TV. With the 360 they have two cords. Red,white, and yellow and also green blue and i think red but im not 100% sure. You may need to find a different port on your TV for your cords, or do what I do and have your VCR hooked up to your tv, and your DvD player hooked up thorugh your VCR. Hope this helps and don't forget to rate ^^
(and yes that yellow and white are a necessity)

DVD Player connection to the tv... Theres three different colours on each side (red, white, and yellow) I already got it hooked up to the tv but the problem is that to hook the other end into the DVD...


Red is usually the left channel audio, white the right channel audio, and yellow the video. Look for something to the effect of "audio out" and "video out" on your DVD player.

Hook up of dvd to tv


hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

simplify- blue green red= component
red white yellow=composite

*wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

DVD won't play movies in color


RCA cable connectors (red,white, yellow) are usually for an analog setup. You could still use these for "component" setup, but know the difference with color stamps as follows:

Component color stamps are "blue, green, red" ( blue is marked Pb, green is marked Y, red is marked Pr)

RCA color stamps your using are "red, white, yellow"

Here are the proper hook up method for "Component" using your "RCA" connectors:

On both the TV and DVD component setup:

Plug the red RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pr (red)

Plug the white RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pb (blue)

Plug the yellow RCA fitting in the component port marked "Y (green)


Be sure this setup is the same for the TV's component input ports, and the DVD's component output ports.

i-Note:

For optimum picture quality you may want to purchase component cables as the gage is thicker giving better impedance match resulting in better picture and sound quality.

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.

I am hooking up a dvd player with the black and white wires


The most basic hook up you can do is use a composite AV cable(yello/red/white). This cable should have come with your player. Check your TV it has those available inputs. They are also color coded. On the back of your player, there is only one yellow colored jack so there should be no problem in identifying where to plug the composite video cable(yellow). Put the composite audio cables (red and white) to the DVD player Audio Out jacks (red and white). Then plug the other end of those cables on the back of your TV. Just make sure they are INPUTS on the TV and colored the same - yello/red/white.

Then find your TV's correct viewing channel. It is not channle 3 or 4. Depending on the TV brand, it may be called AV, INPUT, VIDEO, GAME, SOURCE, AUX, EXT., etc. To find that channel, you may need to check the instructions on your TV manual. Most of the time, there are buttons on the TV remote control or on the TV itself. Sometimes, you need to go into the TV Menu.

check your connections on the back of the tv and back of the dvd player. make sure you are using the proper conections on the back of the tv. if you connect the RCA (composite) cables (red yellow white) you should be going from the red yellow white on the tv to the red yellow white on the dvd player. if you have the component(red blue green) connection on the dvd connected to the red yellow white on the tv, you may get a black and white picture. If this does not work, check the manual for the dvd player and see if there is a way to turn "Progressive Scan" features off, some older TV's cannot handle a progressive scan dvd player.
