Yes you can use Just the red,white and yellow cable from your dvd player to the tv....now make sure you have it connected correctly...sometimes its easy to confused the yellow and white connections. make sure your tv is turned to Input that you have used for connecting the cables on the back....such as...input 1...select input 1 on your tv....or if it says dvd...then select dvdv on yoru tv..You can use a HDMI cable...just plug HDMI from your dvd player to your tv and select HDMI on yoru tv..Good luck
It will depend on the TV/DVD combo and the DVD player. Most TV/DVD combos can have another device attached but you will need to get the cable. Since you posted this under the Insignia IS-DVD1001, I'm not sure which TV or DVD player you have.
In general, look at the back of the TV and the DVD player and see what ports are on both (input on TV and output on the DVD player). If you have HDMI out on the DVD player and HDMI in on the TV, get an HDMI cable and use that; generally you do not need the most expensive cables available. The next best choice is Component video and A/V audio. One cable with three RCA plugs (red, blue and green) on both ends carries the video and a second cable with two RCA plugs (white and red) carries the audio. The third choice is composite video or S-video and the audio. (Composite video is usually designated by yellow and is again an RCA plug. S-video is like a large version of a PS2 (keyboard or mouse) connector. All of these cables are available at electronics stores, stores that sell cables or electronic accessories.
If the two do not have the same ports, you need an appropriate converter (or modulator if the input port is the coax port on the TV). You can find many of these at RadioShack or online.
You shouldn't connect the yellow into the green socket. The Red/Green/White sockets are for HD and therefore won't work correctly with your usually RCA cables. Your TV should have Red/Yellow/White RCA input somewhere. If not you may have to use a VCR or DVD player to connect your system to your TV.
Try the system on another TV. If this doesn't yield any results, then you may need to get the console replaced.
If you can see video on the other TV set, try to connect the console to the TV directly, rather than through the A/V ports on your DVD player or HD converter box, as this can sometimes cause more harm than good.
if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..
what video device do you plug in to your TV screen, DVD player/VCR or game console?
If you still have the owners manual of your TV screen, look for instruction regarding Color system or video system. this menu will allow you to change color sytem from PAL to NTSC or AUTO system. most likely the reason why you have a black and white color from vidoe input is because of system color compatibilty from your input device to your screen.
Or if your using a dvd player, you can also try accessing the "setup" button and look for video setting. from the video setting there will be selection to choose from: PAL , NTSC, AUTO . always select "auto" so that the color system of your DVD player can change from PAL to NTSC deffending on your TV screen system setup.
I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.
>Do you hear Sound >Yes- >make sure all the connection on the TV and DVD player are secure. >is your DVD players Menu on screen/visible before U insert a dvd >check the players menu and the settings >unplugged the DVD player from the power cord wait and the try it >plug the dvd into a different tv if possible if that works then your tv was the problem just locate the tv settings to fix that >still no luck than maybe you DVD players laser just needs to be cleaned >use a self-cleaning DVD clean kit (really cheap too) and they work great it is just a cd that has a tiny brush on the disk as it spins a passes over the EYE to clean it .
