What’s wrong with these DVD players ?

My roommate has two DVD players . One of them is hooked up to the TV set . On Sunday afternoon, he put a DVD in and tried to play it . We got a picture, but we didn’t get any sound . He tried a few other DVDs, and every time, we got a picture, but no sound . He hooked up his spare DVD player, tried to play a DVD, and we got a picture, but no sound . He tried a few other DVDs, and every time, we got a picture, but no sound . Well … WHY didn’t we get any sound ? What’s wrong with these DVD players ? Can both DVD players be at the “not working right” stage ? How can both DVD players be at the “not working right” stage ?

    Because DvDs are a dead technology

    One of the AV wires in the back may be loose. If you don't have the red or white wire jacks plugged in, no sound will play.

    Go into the TV set's menu and see if there's a sound modification. Check the TV input choices. What does it sound like when you turn up the TV's sound control? AHAH!

    The most likely cause is USER ERROR.

    1. You have the TV muted or volume turned down.

    2. You don't have the audio cable plugged in.

    Sounds (no pun intended) too much of a coincidence that multiply DVD-players should have the exact same fault. I'm guessing something else is wrong here, than the acutal DVD-players.

    Older DVD players and newer TV's(smart tv's especially) Don't seem to work all that well together. Could be which cables one decide to use to hook them up, could be they just don't communicate with each other. Try an older TV if you have one around.

    If you've tested multiple discs and players, then they are not the problem.

    next, try a different cable. It may be that you've got it plugged in wrong as well.

    Beyond that, have you checked if the TV was muted? Or on low volume?
