Hello. I bought a samsung plasma 720p HDTV, and I have a DVD (not blu ray, just DVD) player and I bought component cables since the tv has no composite input. Weirdly, I get absolutely nothing with the component cables, when I select the source it should feed from, it says no signal. Even more oddly, when I hook it up with a composite cable, it actually works, just with no color in the picture. I say that's weird because I see no reason why composite would work and component not. Why isn't it receiving any signal from the component cables? They're brand new. I made certain I was inserting in the correct colors. Thanks in advance for any help!

The most likely cause for no video from component inputs is having the colors incorrect. Re-check them and even experiment with different combinations and see if that works. You do realize that you also need a separate audio connection as component is just the video from the DVD player.

Agreed. My Wii was disconmected somehow and I was blindly reconnecting things. Wrong input connections won't hurt it but some systems will stay blank until they get what they are expecting.

There are no dumb questions, unless a customer is asking them.

Compatibility Between Samsung 3D HDTV and Sony Blu-ray Player
I recently bought "last year's model" Samsung UN55C8000 3D HDTV. It's great. Along with it, I also bought their 3D starter kit with two pairs of Samsung SSG-2100AB/ZD 3D glasses. I am now considering buying the relatively new Sony BDP-S780 3D Blu-ray player. I am wondering if the Sony will be...

Component HD Cable For Xbox 360. 720p Not Working (Kinda) :´(
Hey, I just found out that you get better quality if you play in 720p, so I switched from 1080i to 720p on Xbox. After I had done it, it started to lag on the screen, so I tried out the HDMI cables and then it worked just fine! Then I switched to component hd cable again, but it started only to...
