    Having just bought a Toshiba 28Z07B widescreen television and Toshiba SD210E DVD player, I am trying to connect the two using the component video connections. However I am experiencing difficulties – I’m getting a picture but no sound. I’ve looked through the instruction manual of the TV and the DVD player a hundred times and can’t see what I’m doing wrong. I was hoping that somebody on this forum might be able to help me.

    As per the DVD player instruction manual, I have connected a set of triple phono leads between the component video output connections on the DVD player and the component video input connections on the TV. I’m assuming that it doesn’t matter which colour phono lead goes in which socket as long as it is connected to the corresponding colour socket on the component video input connections on the TV. (AM I RIGHT IN ASSUMING THAT THE COMPONENT VIDEO CONNECTIONS ONLY CARRY A VIDEO SIGNAL BUT NOT AUDIO? THIS WOULD EXPLAIN WHY THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL ASKS ME TO DO WHAT IS DESCRIBED IN THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH.)

    As per the DVD player instruction manual, I have also connected red and white phono leads between the audio output connections on the DVD player and the audio input connections on the TV.

    Through the TV’s menus, I have changed the input signal for the AV3 channel to component video. Through the DVD player’s menus, I have changed the audio out selection to analog 2ch (I have tried the other options of bitstream and PCM as well, but they don’t work either).

    The result of all this is that I’m getting a brilliant picture but no sound. Just to make sure that the DVD player wasn’t faulty, I connected it to the TV using a normal scart connection and everything was fine.

    Am I missing something or is the equipment faulty? Any help would be much appreciated, especially from those who own Toshiba TVs and/or DVD players.

    I do not have Toshiba component s but I'll suggest a couple of things until the experts on your side of the world wake up.

    You are correct that Component carries video only - no audio.<br />Everything you have set up sounds right to me on the audio side of things. Since Scart works I'd think it could either be the RCA ports or the RCA cable itself.<br />Can you test the cable on something else to rule that out ? Then maybe test you DVD Audio out ports by connecting to a streo or another TV to test your DVD audio outs. <br />Narrow the problem down like that maybe ?

    Finally (I hate to state the obvious) but many modern TV's have multiple Audio inputs - make sure you have tried plugging your audios into all of them. On my (Sony) component in/out system the audio input RCA ports are right next to the 3 video ports - so it is easy - if yours are not right next to it, it could be any of the other audio inputs.

    Hope this helps.

    Just woke up. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    I am with Craig on this one, zap through all the AV inputs while a DVD is playing and listen if you can hear the sound, that way we can exclude a fault or wrong setup. That said I also assume the video and audio connections are not correctly associated/connected.

    Keep the DVD in 2-channel downmix, Bitstream is for Dolby Digital/DTS and PCM for CD-Audio using the digital outputs (optical or analog) only.

    Please let us know how you get on ...
