Okay, first I have to confess that I am useless with anything technical. I have just bought a dvd player (skyworth) with karoake. I have connected it via my video player to the tv and it works fine. I have not connected any audio cables to it because there are no corresponding sockets on my tv or video. The karaoke discs play fine but I can't get the microphone to work. Is this because I need to connect the audio cables - if so, to what???? Or should it just work without them. I know it's something i have done wrong as I bought a different make dvd and the same problem happened so I exchanged it for this one! Please help - I need this up and running for xmas day! Does anyone have the uk helpline phone no. for Skyworth?
