Sound is garbl;ed and dvds only play in shades of red.
Am using the component video cables.
Anyone have a fix?
Had an RCA that did this and threw it away.
Looks like this is a problematic machine looking at the posts.
Am I better off going to walmart and buying something for 75.00?

check the cables
if your using a regular cable check if they are on the right port or if they are properly connected or possible the cable is has loose connection
if HDMi cable kindly check the connection and settings on your television
hope that this works
Do you have a cable box or satellite box? If you do, try hooking up your TV sound through the box. Look for audio out in the back of box (white/red RCA Jacks). Hook RCA cable from cable box to surround amp. Even if the audio out jacks are being used already, you can use Y connectors to hook up the surround amp to the box.
Hope this works for you!
you did not connect it to the right port in you tv with the right cables. if it came with a cable using red, blue, and green wire you need to connect all three to the appropriate place on the tv in this case the red is a video cable and not audio they are white and black in component video... if it is the other way around you have a red white and yellow cable the red and white are audio and yellow is the only video and needs to be connected to a yellow jack on the television
You have to connect extra red & white audio cable from your TV's (or cable box, if you have one) AUDIO OUT to the Home Theater's AUX IN 2 at the back (below Video In). Set the HTS unit to AUX 2 using the AUX button on the remote control and you should be able to get sound.
When connecting the dvd player using component cables and audio cables, go to the progressive scan setting on the dvd player and select it. Once I activated the progressive scan, the problem was solved.
if it is hooked up with componant, thats the red blue green cables for video, and red white for audio, then you probabily eather dont have the red pluged all the way in, or you have the red audio, and red video---reversed, make sure to check them on the dvd player, and on the tv, if there correct, try using the composit input, that is the yellow red and white
it is your av cable however the components in the cable get a small static boost when u are using your controller so it becomes an intermittent fault ie;....when in game vidios or watching dvds, u rarely use the controller so u dont see the flickering and u only see it when in game play because u are in constant contact with the controlls and the components inside the av cable recieve a small static boost causing the interference.
Try use connect your dvd player with just RCA(composite video) and see if you get regular color picture.If so,you need to go to the system menu to check the video output and see if it is under R Pr Pb-component video setting?If not,be sure to change it to component video setting AND use component video cable to connect to your TV unless your TV don't have this connection.
