    A few more details please. What lead are you using?

    If scart do you have a switchable one or one-way? Some leads are Scart to s-video others s-video to Scart. Presuming your DVD is scart you would need a Scart to s-video (or a switchable one).

    Can you test the cable with a meter or substitute it with another S-video cable ? Can you try the DVD player and cable into a TV to test ?
    What's the projector model ?

    Is the DVD player setup to output S-Video?

    From memory, my Toshiba SD330 can be set to output RGB through the SCART (which is good for region 1 NTSC to my telly) or S-Video.

    If the RGB option is selected, the S-Video output from the S-Video connection is disabled as well.

    Might be worth going through the players set-up menu.
