Did you go into the television's menu and change the input?

I changed it from regular tv to video. On our tv, after you scroll through all digital channels, HDMI 1 appears, then HDMI 2 appears then COMPONENT appears and then VIDEO appears with a blank screen.

How did you connect the DVD player to the TV ( Cable type?).

It's not a basic dvd player. It's a wall mounted am/fm radio that's plays dvds. I have the 3 cables that run from it plugged directly into the back of the tv. Have sound, just no picture.

Did you stop at COMPONENT to see if the picture came in? Did you stop at the two HDMI inputs to see if the picture came in?

tv dvd hookup

I'm no expert, but along with the usual RCA cables, red and white, for stereo sound, there should be a yellow for video. OR: there is an HDMI port on the player, and an HDMI port on the TV. OR: there is a digital video out, which is an ORANGE hubbed RCA-ish looking plug, that goes into an ORANGE port on the TV. It is a special digital cable and regular RCA jacks won't work on it.
Most often it is a combo of these cables that is your final solution.
A trip to the vender is often the only solution, since the manufacturer just throws these things in there, and no telling HOW they are hooked up.
I have owned 5 different rigs, and NONE were hooked up right.
As noted above, when playing, scan the input sources, and stop at each one for a few moments to see if the signal is coming through. It might be "Video" "Game"
"HDMI" 1 or 2, or someother combo. Check your manuals for player and TV, too.
