    The Geek squad hooked up the DVD to the TV but never tested it. WE went to use it and the DVD player playes and works fine the color of everything is blue/gray in color. When I take the blue cable out of the connection on the TV the DVD plays in Black and white. The player itself works fine we were using it the past three days on our old Tv before the HDTV and Digital cable were installed. I changed the HMDI cable and had the same results. I used the old cable from the DVD player and went direct to the AV1 connection and had the same results. The TV works great colors are gereat HD is great. Is it possible that the DVD player is to old (5yrs) to work with digital and HDTV? I could takd DVD out but there's alot to that because of how it was installed into furniture ect. I can try a WI through the TV and see what happens same concept.

    I hooked the DVD player backup to my old TV and it works fine

    Wow, this is indeed a strange issue. Especially because you have the same results going over AV1. Since you're saying the TV works fine with other things like HD TV, I am starting to lean towards the DVD player being faulty. What likely happened is that the DVD player has gotten a little old and, in the move, something might have been bumped or the player may have just started to fail about the same time you brought in the new TV. Even though it is hard to get the DVD player unplugged (I know exactly what you mean, I have all my AV stuff routed through furniture as well) I think that's going to be the only way to find out what is going on for sure. If you unplug the DVD player and try it on a different HD TV somewhere, you will be able to verify if it is a TV problem or the DVD player's problem. If you find the DVD player is broken, then you can go ahead and replace it while it is all unplugged anyways, but if you find it is working fine, I would recommend that you contact Best Buy (I'm assuming you bought the TV there) or the TV manufacture to see if you can get it replaced. Unfortunately, in this kind of situation, it's a total pain to find out what's going on and to get everything working again.

    It sounds like you are using a component cable, and that there is either something wrong with the output on the DVD player, the input on the TV, or there is a problem with the cable itself. Can you take the DVD player to a friends house or to another TV and try it and see if you get the same results? Using the same cable and same DVD Player somewhere else causes the same problem, then you will know something is up with you TV, or how you hooked your TV up. Give that a try and let us know how it went.

How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


Things You'll Need:

* Component cables

Instructions


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


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.

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


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.


Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

Tips & Warnings

You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


Hope it helped.

Have a nice day...

I'M TRYING TO HOOK UP MY INSIGNIA 42'' 1080P FLAT-PANEL LCD HDTV TO OUR DVD PLAYER USING THE COMPONENTS (RED, BLUE, GREEN, RED & WHITE CABLES) PROVIDED AND THE PICTURE IS IN BLACK & WHITE....


The three picture cords (red/blue/green) often are a little larger around than the sound cords (red/white). If they are they same size, they are often grouped separate by picture and sound. Double check to verify if you have the "red" cords correct. Good luck.

No owners manual can't get new blue ray dvd player to work on tv


Here is the manual:

When using the HDMI connections you may have to tell the DVD to output to that port.  Also you may have to connect additional sound cables from the DVD output to the TV.

I am not an HDTV expert but I believe they are all backwards compatible so the fact it is HD should not be a problem. Have you tried a vcr or dvd player on the same hook ups? It is possible you are trying to use a video input that is already in use? I know on my TV I have the DVD hooked up with an S-video cable to "Video 2". Right next to the S-video hookup are the red, yellow, white RCA jacks. On my TV these can't be used when the S-video is in use so I have to have the games hooked up to the front panel "Video 3". I would disconnect everything and try hooking the N64 up in each input to see if you can find one that works.

DVD movies do not play


A blue screen means the TV is not receiving a video signal. Check all connections, then try another player, cable, etc. Also, check DVD and TV AV settings.

I put the disc in the player ithen tries to play then it says disc not valid .


Same here!!! We've only used it maybe 8 or 9 times. And it's been worthless for the past month because of it. It reads everything "no valid disk" and nothing will work. And I tried e-mailing customer support several times, with no luck.
