Why won't my older DVD player work w/ my new TV?

Have a very cheap DVD player (Protron PD-800) connected to my new TV (Samsung PN43D450 plasma 720p/600hz).
I've tryed component cables and S-video w/ L-R audio.

Could the player be to old or incompatible w/ newer technology?

Nope...if you tell the Samsung to display what's on the component inputs, it should do so without issues.

The component cables with give you much higher video quality over the S-Video. Like Echo stated, it's most likely just a matter of switching your TV to the correct input. The DVD player is certainly compatible.

Sooo... I found the DVD player manual and it says the player must be in Progressive Scan mode to work w/ component video. A simple push of the remote "PSCAN" button got me back in service.

Thanks for the responses!

Trying not to drift off topic, has anyone done a direct comparison of component video against digital? Using the same source and monitor?

I've done something like that. I have a Panasonic BluRay player that has both HDMI and component out connected to a small Dynex HDTV. The Dynex has a resolution of 720p. I connected the blu ray with both component and HDMI and I personally could not see a difference. However component video only supports up to 720p if I am not mistaken so you would definitely see a difference on a 1080p TV.

Also you need the HDMI to have 7.1 surround as optical and coax digital audio connections only support up to 6.1, again, if I am not mistaken. Since the TV only has stereo speakers built in that aspect wasn't a concern.
