Hi there,

This can happen if the video format on the DVD player is set to an unsupported format.

The formats supported by your TV are:

1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i

If the DVD player is set to a different format than those mentioned above, then your TV set may not be capable of reading the signals.

Test the DVD player on a different TV set, and check what format it is set to. Adjust if necessary.

I got it to work by setting the DVDs player to ntsc even though I'm playing pal DVDs it wouldn't support pal but will accept DVDs output. Go figure

Ok, it may just be a software glitch on that particular model.
Glad to hear you got it sorted!
