    Could be a number of things.

    Is your TV in S-Video mode but you don,t have the S-lead connected ?

    DVD player is not in S-video mode ?

    Are you playing region 1 DVD and your Tv is not NTSC compatible ?

    Probably the DVD player is outputting an s-video signal to a TV which either cannot accept or is not set for s-video
