All of my connections are correct, from my DVD player to my television. When I try to play a DVD I get sound, but no picture. I also used new RCA (red, white, and yellow)cables and I still encountered the same problem.

If your DVD player is not playing with sound or picture and not jumping, there could be a few possible causes:
The connections between the DVD player and the TV or audio system may be loose or damaged. Check the connections and make sure that they are secure and in good condition.
The DVD may be dirty or scratched. Clean the DVD with a soft, dry cloth and check for any scratches or damage. A dirty or scratched DVD may not play properly.
The laser lens of the DVD player may be dirty. The laser lens reads the data on the DVD and if it is dirty, it may not be able to read the data correctly, causing the sound and picture to not play properly. You can try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disc or by using a soft, dry cloth.
The DVD player's firmware may be outdated. Firmware is the software that runs the DVD player and if it is outdated, it may not be able to play newer DVDs or may have other issues. Check the manufacturer's website for any firmware updates and instructions on how to install them.
The DVD player may be malfunctioning. If none of the above solutions work, the DVD player may be malfunctioning and may need to be repaired or replaced.
Make sure the video cables are properly connected. The cables that connect the DVD player to the TV should be securely plugged into the correct ports on each device. Double-check that the cables are not loose or damaged.
Check the input source on your TV. Make sure the TV is set to the correct input source that the DVD player is connected to. For example, if the DVD player is connected to HDMI 1, then the TV should be set to HDMI 1 as well.
Check the TV's settings. Some TVs have a "picture in picture" or "picture by picture" feature that may be turned on, preventing the main picture from showing.
Check the DVD player's settings. Some DVD players have a setting that controls the aspect ratio of the picture. Make sure this is set correctly for your TV.
Check the TV and DVD player compatibility. Some TV's are not compatible with older DVD players and this could be the reason for the lack of picture.
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.

Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.
Check all your connections.
Also please let me know how you have it connected currently, what is the model of the dvd player and the television. Are you running through an AV receiver?
one ting to try is connecting ONLY the red and white audio connectors from teh dvdplayer to the correct input on the tv while it is on. if you hear a slight "pop" [not harmful] you have the right input and there might just be a problem with the dvd player itself.
be sure you have the right audio track selected or try playing a cd.
