Desperately need help with a Genesis GT 2.0

The stereo plays the DVD and we hear it but cannot get it on the tv. We have tried different sources on the tv but nothing receives it. When we push the Setup button on the stereo itself, we get nothing. There is no Setup button on the unit so we have no opportunity to check it ourselves. The Quick Start Guide says to load the DVD and it will play. Obviously, that doesn't work. I have spent three hours on this to no avail. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Just off the top of my head, both the DVD and the TV need to be on the right settings....I believe mine was AV on the flat screen and AV1 on the genesis. I got it confused with AU1 once and couldn't get it to work. Mine's unplugged at the moment, or I'd go outside and see what settings it is.

OK, went outside and looked...I'm not plugged into 110, so I couldn't check the TV, but the radio should cycle through to AV1 with the "mode" button. I believe it defaults to AU1.

Thanks for responding. When I put in the DVD, it doesn't automatically cycle to AV1 but I can manually put it on there. I did that and put my tv on AV source. Still nothing. Just sound from the stereo.

Sounds like maybe it's just a video cable not plugged in to the right port?

We have actually tried all three ports. This is so frustrating. The stereo is across the camper from the TV. It's all brand new. If the wiring itself is wrong, it's already built over by Forest River. We only have two cords (besides the electric cord). One is Video and the other is for exterior Cable/Satellite. Really appreciate you two trying to help here. You would think it would be easy....

When you say "two cords" do you mean to wall jack connections?

What brand and model of stereo? Jensen?

Look at the connections that are physically connected to the TV. If there is only one cable (RG6 or 59 AKA cable tv cables) then you are most likely not connected to the Jensen DVD player. If there is an HDMI or RCA connection, what port does it say it is? You may need a flashlight to read it, but you will need to know that.

There should (at least there is on my trailer) be a wall jack very near the stereo with output connections. What are they on your trailer? Mine has an RCA jack for video output (yellow) that I then connect to the TV on one of several ports. The very latest Jensen has HDMI outputs. Whichever port you connect it to, is the selected input on the TV that will work.

His post title says he's got a Genesis GT 2.0 . Has it worked at all up until now, or did this just start? If it's never worked, I'd pull the unit out of the wall slightly. I've never done it, but it looks like the trim just pops off and it's screwed in from the front like a car stereo. Everything from the pictures I've seen shows the cables all being plugged in from the side. Maybe something is loose as jtstromburg suggested.

Raspivy, I am pretty sure the problem is between the stereo and the TV. You cannot see any plugs anywhere but the TV. The unit is brand new. It's the first time we've even camped in the trailer.

There should be a yellow video cable connected to the tv for video in from the dvd player. What tt and brand of tv? If it's a furrion, the yellow video input doubles as one of the component inputs
