DVD question

We are supposed to be able to play a DVD through our TV (this is the pre-installed DVD player that came with our camper) using the 3 cables that come out of the wall into our television. However, our television says it can't find any signal for the DVD player. We get sound out of the speakers but NO VIDEO! I checked the connections behind the wall on all 3 cables and they seem to be fine. I don't know what else to do to troubleshoot why the video portion is not recognized by my Smart Television. Ya'll helped me so much with my water heater problem, I thought I would try one more problem on you.

Hi the TV source is set for the cable that is inputting the signal from the DVD player ? Is the sound coming from the DVD/trailer speakers?

Troubleshooting is a PAIN!
-Is there a DVD button on the stereo? Maybe it thinks it's playing an audio cd.
-hookup your home DVD player to the tv to verify that the problem isn't with the tv. I wouldn't bother with audio connections because you said that you have sound. If that works now the pain begins!
-Pull out the stereo and hook up a different video cable directly from the stereo to the tv. If this works you have a bad cable. If it doesn't work you have a bad stereo.
Or just take it to your dealer. . Rv's don't have the best stereos!

Had an HDMI cable connected to mine that went bad. Had to pull out the dvd unit and hook up and run a new cable.


It went bad because of me, not the trailers fault on this one.

Haven't checked connection at DVD end yet. somewhat scared of breaking something trying to get it off the wall. But, I think that is exactly what I have to do. Thanks.

I haven't thought about the DVD button exactly that way. I might actually have that and I haven't seen it on the machine. The sound is coming through the house speakers so I would think that the machine recognizes that it is a DVD. But, a little more troubleshooting will be necessary. Thanks for the reply.

I'm open to how to get the DVD off the wall if you can tell me that.

What model? If an iRV radio, remove two plastic side plates with small flathead screwdriver, then you will see the screws. Not too difficult getting it out.

I would actually have to arise from the comfort of my easy chair to go and look to see what model it is. Isn't that sad? However, it looks like it has a plastic face plate around the edge and I will find those screws you are talking about. I'm afraid of breaking the plastic because usually I go into things like a bull in a china cabinet. Perhaps I can have a little more finesse with the thing and not break it. Thanks for the help and encouragement!
