If you have component video output on your DVD player and your TV or projector can take that signal, use it. DVD players with this output usually
have three RCA jacks which are color-coded green, blue, and red. They are labeled either Y, B-Y, R-Y, or alternatively Y, Pb, Pr, or Y, Cb, Cr. For
practical purposes they are all the same thing. If your television or projector also has the same three RCA jacks, just connect them with a three-wire
component video cable making sure the colors match up on both ends (or you can use three standard composite video cables to do the same thing).
There is a realy good chance your red cable is faulty.
THey can be labeled two different ways.
As a test I would swap one of the other component cables with the red.
The see if red gets processed. Thats the cheap fix.
It could still be an output problem from the device, or input at the tv.
Moving those cables will give you a good idea .
Thirdly..and most importantly..YOu may need to have your video source running, then turn on the TV..sometimes it won't pick up one of the component
I have been through this..
