DVD player and TV

Hello. I am new to the forum and was hoping someone may be able to help us out. We are having trouble with our TV and DVD player. Our RV is a 2012 model and fairly new. It worked when we first got it but lately has not. we get sound but no picture. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum!
Now, what model of Rv? TV? DVD?
If the Tv have sound from the DVD, check what is the connection to the tv, Hdmi, RCA? (From the DVD unit)

TV is a minefield to those who don't understand it. Over-the-air TV signals are now digital. If your TV set(s) are analog, you need a digital to analog converter to get TV through your roof antenna.

Campground cable systems can also have digital/analog issues. Our S&B is in an area provided with cable TV by Comcast. For many years the signal coming out of the wall jack was analog, which the older TV tuners could handle. About 5 years ago, Comcast went digital, but they used a different signal standard than that used by o-t-a stations. This requires a set-top box or a digital video recorder to act as a translator between Comcast's digital signal and your analog TV which has to be set to Channel 3. The Comcast remote takes care of channel assignment, and some other functions, but display settings (color, contrast, etc.) are still under the control of the TV set's original remote.

We've concluded that trying to use the TV when we're on a trip is difficult at best and a PITA otherwise. Unless a CG has cable that puts out an old-fashioned analog signal, we don't bother trying to hook up.

Watching TV is a very low priority when we're on the road, so it's not a big deal when we can't do so. At home we can get CBC-Vancouver or Victoria and watch it more than any other channels. When we're further south we're not that concerned (except DW can't get Coronation Street). News and weather are about all we want to see and we can get enough information by radio or on our laptop computer.

If anyone would like a driving lesson through this minefield, send me a PM.

Are you trying to get a DVD to play? Or are you just trying to watch TV?

It is a minefield. Our Blu-ray didn't seem to work, checked the back and found the hdmi cable had come loose. It then had a pink toned picture and no sound until everything was shut down and restarted.

Get to the back of the unit and check that all the wires are tightly connected. Please tell us also if the sound is coming from the TV or an audio system.

Putting on an old AV integrator hat, typically this issue is a result of a loose / damaged cable. How is your DVD connected to the TV?

we have a flagstaff 8031BHDS RV with a Toshiba TV, Genesis audio system with integrated DVD/CD player. we are getting sound out of the audio system, actually all the sound goes thru the audio not the tv. when we are trying to play a dvd it says "no video signal" on the tv screen and the input is changed to dvd. we checked wires on back of tv everything is tight and connected.....
