I have an older Panasonic DVD recorder/player. It does not

Customer Question

I have an older Panasonic DVD recorder/player. It does not communicate with the tv. I have tried S-VHS connection and component connections and two different TV's but nothing shows on the screen. The TV says "No Signal" Is it just dead. I tried to reset pushing both Channel up and down at the same time but no change.
JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: One of the Tv's is a Panasonic plasma about 10 years old and the other is a small newer Insignia. The player has worked with the Panasonic tv for years.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: We do not use the player very often so it is hard to say when the problem started. I have tried the reset as described before and connected other devices to the tv to make sure the tv is not the problem
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
