Technician's Assistant: What does your TV screen look like when you try to connect your digital media player? Is there anything at all displayed?

No

Technician's Assistant: Is your digital media player connected to the TV, or is it connected to a power outlet?

Power outlet

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

It's just a cheap player strictly to watch movies. I hope I know what I'm talking about. you are dealing with a 79 year old bear with me.

On your TV you connect the Yellow cable to the Green jack. Make sure you connect the cables to the bottom most row of jacks on the back of the TV. Red and White will match up with the red and white Audio jacks, and then Yellow will plug into the Green jack. Lastly you'll use the original Samsung remote's SOURCE button and select "AV" to get a picture from the player on the screen.
