Tech Help?  
Ugh. I'm so frustrated.

Last week, the cable people helped us set up our vcr/dvd combo to our tv after all the problems we've been having. I haven't tried the dvd player until this week.

No sound.

*pulls hair*

Does anyone know how I can get sound? The picture is fine.

The VCR combo is hooked up directly to the TV and bypasses the cable box. That is how they had to set it up because of the HD Tv and cable box, supposedly. It looks like the white/red/yellow audio and video wires are plugged into the audio out on the vcr/dvd combo and plugged into the av1 in the back of the TV.

Like I said, picture works fine but when I try to play a DVD there is no sound. I took out my exercise DVD to see if it was just the DVD, but it won't play movies either.

I'm not sure what's wrong.

ETA: Cable guy was an idiot. I fixed it myself.

Would you like the loaner of a portable DVD player? It plays DVDs (but not blu-ray) and does hook up to televisions, and has a powercord for when you're in a car.

No, that's okay. I just need to figure out what's wrong. I get really OCD about these things and I can't do anything until I figure it out, which is making me cranky. I don't know if we're missing a wire or what. it's just frustrating. We can't seem to get everything fixed from when lightning hit.

Add the now leaking dishwater and my family is about ready to drive off a bridge.

I'd first try the easiest thing - turn off both t.v. and the player, then unplug and replug the cords back in (making sure they're going to the correct ones), to make sure both ends are all the way in. If they are, then check your t.v. settings (mine you can only access with the t.v. remote, not the cable remote) to make sure your av1 port isn't disabled or muted or set to the wrong thing.

If none of the commenter's other suggestions work you might call your cable company and ask them anyhow. Good luck!
