What is the model of your DVD Player? and does your old Sharp TV have jack plugs in the back to accept audio leads.

Normally you would connect a Scart lead from the DVD player to the back of your Sharp TV.

If your Sharp TV is so old that it does not have a Scart Socket then you may have to use an RF lead running from the RF out Socket from your DVD player to your Sharp TV!

My portable dvd player started have a problem with sound background ok but the voices are distorted and muttled

*Check your audio cables (Red and white are audio) Pull out and reseat them for a good connection.
*Check if your using 'other' audio methods like 'Optical' or the older multi-pin Video/audio combo plugs. Check DVD and TV cords and plugs for cuts or cracks. Replace if needed.
* If all audio from any source; Cable, Tape, DVD, etc. sounds the same then check the speakers (may be blown) Continue with steps bellow to find the specific problem.
* Go to DVD player and check audio options. set up for normal play. Only use other options IF you have the equipment (speakers) for that set up. IE; don't use 'theater' mode if you don't have theater speakers wired up for that option (usually a minimum of 3 to 5 speakers max.)
* Check the wires to each speaker for cuts, shorts, disconnection. Re strip wires as needed to ensure a good connection. Weak or low sound is an indication of a shorted or blown out speaker.
*Got to TV set up menu and check your audio options. If your not sure then reset TV to factory settings and perform an initial set up again.
* If you have good sound on regular cable and only bad sound on the DVD player then try another DVD player with the same cords. If your still using the older Yellow-Whit-Red cords then any similar video device should work on the same cords. Many VCR, Vid Cameras have the same outputs that can be used to test your TV set up. (Digital Cameras may have the same too.)
* Final, If your still having problems then check with the TV vendor for advice.

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.

Hello, I have a JVC TV Model #EM302T We are trying to play a DVD on it. We get sound but no picture. What are we doing wrong?

For a dvd player you will need to use 3 cords. The 2 cords you talk about are probably the left and right audio cords which are red and white. You will need the yellow cord for video.

I have an older sharp tv from an older sibling and the cable works, but I'm trying to connect what I believe to be an older dvd player to it. The dvd player has the 3 color cords (red yellow and white)...

Those modes you gave are for what TYPE of signal is comming in to the Cable/Antenna connector.
You need to switch from that input device to the other input device, the RCA plugs. These are often displayed as Aux or perhaps Line etc. It would help if you had the remote from the tv and were able to choose Aux or Line, or if it has TV/Video button. But if not, try channel button on the tv itself and go down below Ch 1. If using the cable remote to control TV, it may have a TV/Video button too. Maybe.
Good luck

No sound while playing a dvd jvc8040b receiver

Make sure the the necessary input of the tv is select to be able to play the sound from your DVD. Also check to make sure you are pluging in the sound cords into the input sound of the tv and not the output. Make sure the source of the tv that you selected to play the DVD through has a sound jack associated with it.
