HOW TO PLAY DVD PLAYER WITH THE TV


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • DVD
  • RCA, component, or HDMI cable(s)
  1. Decide what type of connection to use. Look at the back of your DVD player. It should at least have RCA (red, yellow, white) output ports. It may also have component out, S-video out, VGA out, or HDMI out. These connections vary in picture quality and price, HDMI being the most expensive and providing for the highest-quality picture. Whichever type of connection you decide to use, you also need to verify that you have the same connection on your TV. Flat screen TVs typically have more connection options than other types of TVs, so you should at least have component, RCA and HDMI inputs.
  2. Connect the DVD payer to the flat screen TV. Take one end of the cable or cables you decided to use and connect to the output on the DVD player. The other end should be connected to the corresponding input on the TV. Video input connections are usually found on the sides of flat screen TVs. Once the DVD player has been connected, you are ready to use your DVD player.
  3. Check DVD player functionality. Tune your TV to the input that you used for your DVD player by pressing the button on your remote labeled "input," "source," "TV/video," Source select," "TV/AV" or the like. For instance, if you used an HDMI cable plugged into your TV's "HDMI 1" input, press the input selection button until you see HDMI 1 on the screen. Power on the DVD player, insert a DVD into the player and press play and you should now see a feed from your DVD player.

Dynex dx-32l151a11 the picture is black and white with the dvd player


With a Black and White picture it sounds like you're trying to connect the DVD Player's "Composite" connection to the TV's Component Connection.

Composite is a 3 wire system with Yellow for the video, and red and white for the audio. On your TV this connection is located on the side.

Component is a 5 wire system, with Blue, Green & Red for Video, and Red and White for audio. On your TV this connection type is located on the rear panel.

Check to make sure you are hooking the DVD player & the TV to the same input types.

It very much depends on:
the model of DVD player you have and whether it is a standard or blu-ray player
the settings on the player
the type of connection (component and HDMI will yield a better picture)

Sony Bravia with Phillps dvd player


The DVD player may have multiple output formats that can be displayed. Sounds like you have the composite output selected when you have the component output selected on the DVD player. Check the menu options on the DVD player and confirm they match the way you have the player connected

Hey motherann,

If your TV has only been having problems displaying a picture when using the DVD player (and normal TV stations are unaffected), you may only need to check the connections between your TV and DVD player to resolve the issue.

Most DVD players will connect to a TV using component video cables, an HDMI cable, a composite video cable, or an S-Video cable. HDMI and S-Video ports generally have a unique enough shape that the cables used to make those connections cannot be used anywhere else, but the same unfortunately does not apply to component and composite cables. Component and composite video cables share a similar shape, and can often be confused if the identifying marks on the cable itself, TV or DVD player have been removed. Composite video cables are traditionally a single connection that transmits the entire video signal from the DVD player to the TV, while component cables are a series of three cables that each transmit a portion of the same image.

The first thing I would suggest checking is that each cable is correctly connected to both the DVD player and your TV. Make sure that the cable(s) connected to your DVD player is plugged into the appropriate "Video Out" port, and attached to the TV at the corresponding "Video In" port. These ports should be labeled on both the TV and DVD player for easy identification, regardless of where the connections are located. Additionally, many manufacturers will even color-code both the connection ports and the cables themselves, to ensure that the right cable is used at any given time.

In the event that everything has been set up correctly but the TV still does not pick up a video signal from the DVD player, there could be a number of other potential problems: the cable being used could be defective, one of the connection ports used (on either the DVD player or TV) could be defective, or they may even be a loose connection inside the TV or DVD player.

Replacing a defective cable is generally the easist possible solution to this type of scenario, but if the problem still persists after doing so, you may wish to consult a repair technician to determine the cause of the problem.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Try to connect a DVD player or some other device to get video into the TV, just to make sure is not your digital box.
Try all the video inputs if possible.

Connecting old DVD player to LCD


Just respect the colors. Green output from the dvd to green input tv, Red output from the dvd to red input tv and the same with blue. All 3 cables (green , red, blue) are for the picture, so you got to plug another 2 for the sound.
