tv dvd hookup
I'm no expert, but along with the usual RCA cables, red and white, for stereo sound, there should be a yellow for video. OR: there is an HDMI port on the player, and an HDMI port on the TV. OR: there is a digital video out, which is an ORANGE hubbed RCA-ish looking plug, that goes into an ORANGE port on the TV. It is a special digital cable and regular RCA jacks won't work on it.
Most often it is a combo of these cables that is your final solution.
A trip to the vender is often the only solution, since the manufacturer just throws these things in there, and no telling HOW they are hooked up.
I have owned 5 different rigs, and NONE were hooked up right.
As noted above, when playing, scan the input sources, and stop at each one for a few moments to see if the signal is coming through. It might be "Video" "Game"
"HDMI" 1 or 2, or someother combo. Check your manuals for player and TV, too.
