DVD player can only output to HDMI or Component but not Composite or S-Video. Can I fix this?

A friend gave me her Toshiba DR-6 (DVD Player/Recorder), without any video cables or remote control, for free as she complained she only got sound from the device. She has never had it fully working before.
The device has 4 video output method (Composite, S-Video, Component, HDMI). I tested all four methods with existing working cables and only two, Component and HDMI, worked.
The TV that I want to hook this up to has no HDMI input, and getting new Component cables seems like it would cost more than to purchase a new player in the first place.
Are there any other reasons why this would happen barring faulty outputs? Is there a secret button sequence to press to reset the device without using a remote control?
