This is going out on a limb, but are you using an s-video or component connection and forgetting to also use sound cables?

Older style A/V cables have a yellow connector for video and red and white connectors for sound. Superior s-video and component connections (which if you aren't using, you really really should) are for video only, and require also using red and white audio cables. S-video is a big connector that looks like the kind used on a computer mouse or keyboard, and component uses three cables, red, green, and blue connectors.

I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?


Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

Does the phillips flat screen tv have to be on a particular channel to operate the dvd player


Yes it has to be on the right av/ext

If you have connect the DVD player via a Scart lead all you have to do when your TV is on is then turn the DVD player power on and this should auto change your channel for you..... The scart lead send a voltage upto the tv so this changes the channel for you.

If this for any reason does not work. Then you will have to use your remote for the TV to flick through the AV/source button until you get to the DVD

Hope this helps you out.

My Phillips DVD player has a white screen. It will play the DVD but still show white screen.


The wire could be loose that connects the screen to the dvd player board, these are a common problem on alot of portable dvd players.

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


ruettab,

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

cheers,
mark

Hey,

Try another way of connecting the dvd player to the tv, How about Svideo, can you try that and see how it goes? - I checked the dvd player has svideo connector, dont know about your tv.

Thanks,

You did not say if you have connected the video out on the surround system to the video in on the tv. If not connect it and select that input on the tv.
