Connecting a DVD player to your stereo receiver (or television, if you don't have a receiver) involves making two basic connections: audio and video.
Audio
The first connection to make is for the audio portion of the signal. There will be several options depending on the receiver you have.

  • The best choice (if available) is either to use an optical (also called Tos-link) or coaxial (RCA) digital connection. These two choices are equal in quality. In order to use either of these, you will need to have both an output on the DVD player, and an input on the receiver. Only receivers with built-in Dolby Digital decoders will have this type of input.

    The audio outputs on a DVD player

  • If your receiver does not have a built-in Dolby Digital or DTS decoder, but is "Dolby Digital ready," look for the 5.1-channel Dolby or 5.1-channel DTS. This connection involves six cables, corresponding to different speaker channels: left front, center front, right front, left rear, right rear and subwoofer.

  • The last option to connect the two components is with analog RCA outputs. This is a two-cable connection, with one cable delivering the left speaker sound, and the other cable delivering the right. This connection will deliver only stereo sound, but it may be your only option if you are hooking up directly to a television, or if you have an old receiver with only two channels.
Now let's take a look at the video connection.
  • The best quality choice is to use component connection. This connection consists of three cables: color-labeled red, blue and green. The quality is superb. However, these connections only exist on extremely high-end receivers and television sets.

  • The next option is s-video. One cable connects the DVD player to the receiver in this setup.

  • The last option, similar to the audio setup, is to use the analog RCA video output, usually color-labeled yellow on both ends. This will deliver the lowest quality, but will suffice for most older, analog televisions.

Im trying to connect my coby dvd player to my samsui tv


Hi Maria,
You can hear the sound means your TV and the DVD player are working well. May be the video connecting cord ( yellow connector) between the TV and DVD player has gone bad. Please try replacing it. For testing, you can interchange it with any of the two sound connecting cords which have white and red connectors. I hope it helps.

My sony DVP-NS57P dvd is working perfectly but cant display the blue screen on my tv;i cant see the options on tv so i need a blind tour into the dvd's manual to put it back to normal;help!


It may be as simple as disconnecting the DVD player from the TV
and unplugging TV for an hour to reset. If you can reach the menu after connecting, review the manual and DVD options.

I cant get my dvd player to power off so that my tv can come back on. I keep hearing the dvd player make a sound but off is constantly displaying on it. I cant get my tv back on and i keep hit the power...


Remove the power and manually turn the loading mechanism to eject the DVD whichis struck up inside the player. Now if the DVD circuit seems to hang up again you can disconnect the connector to the main board to switch on the TV.

Samsung TXJ2754 (27") DVD issues (Sound but no Picture)


Assuming you have picture on the TV when hooked up to cable, antenna or satellite I would take the DVD player to a friends house to see if it worked on their set (using your cables of course). If you can't get a picture on your TV no matter what, then it could be either the Jungle IC or EEPROM IC inside the set. Since it displays "No Video Signal" on the screen, that leaves out the High Voltage section of the TV. My main suspicion would be the video cable or settings on the DVD or TV.
