Two cords came with the DVD player . One cord has yellow ends. The other has a red end and a white end. My TV has the place to connect it on the front but there only has the connection for a yellow and a white connection. No matter how I try to hook it up, the picture on the tv keeps rolling and rolling so I can watch anything at all. What do I do?

Re: Hooking up GPX D1816
It really doesnt matter what color the cables are as long as the one from video out on the dvd player is going to video in on the tv then the same for the sound.yellow is generally video and red would be your sound

Red is right channel, White is Left Channel, and Yellow is video. If you just got the TV and DVD player its a pretty simple setup. Just look on the back of the DVD player and hook the yellow cord to video and hook the other end to video on your TV. Now just plug in the red and white cords to the audio on the back of the DVD player and connect the other ends to audio on the back of the TV. You can bypass these connections and just get a HDMI cable which has video and sound all in one convenient cord, but they cost more. You just connect the cord on the back of the DVD player where it says HDMI and then plug the other end to the TV where it says HDMI.
I also have a GPS DVD Player and Direct TV. On the back of the TV there are slots for AV1 and AV2, I chose AV1. The yellow cable is your video.When placing the YELLOW in the video I noticed the pic was Black and White. After changing it to the slot marked Video Y the color came back. The white and red are audio. I put the WHITE in Audio L and the RED next to it in Audio Pr. Granted I am using a Phillips TV but the concept is the same. Hope this helps. If you don't have sound, switch the position of the Audio (red and white) cables.
Easy, just match up color codes from tv to dvd player. If you only have red, yellow and white, they should coincide wih the TV as some TV's dont have the 5 color jacks R/W/G/B/Y inputs. If they do, use the colorstream or "comp" input on the TV
Your cables are coded red(right audio), white(left audio) and yellow(video). The cable inputs on the dvd player and tv are likewise coded. Just connect color to like color. In setup, do not
change NTSC! If you should go to PAL you'll never get out of setup and all you'll have is screen roll, as though the vertical hold gave out.
