OK, it is DVD-VCR combo player.

What is the model number of your TV connected to combo player?

Were you doing setting in TV menu setup that flipped the TV menu?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The tv is a magnavox. I don't know what model it is just an older model. I can't get behind it to see.There was a blue screen with no sound when trying to play a dvd so I went the setup menu to figure out what to do and I don't remember what is selected but the screen went black and white and you could see the menu page flipping

Can you try it again to see if it helps?

OK, so it didn't work either. There is no setting available in VCR setup menu that can flip the menu so in my opinion it was coincidence that VCR got internal failure while you were working on setup menu. VCR main board has got internal failure and it needs to be replaced but it may no longer be available because of VCR age and you can buy replacement DVC-2000 from Amazon or ebay for $35 to $50, please check following links for details..

No its not that it's the setting. There was something that I selected on the setup menu
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can see the menu when I pressed the select button. It has to do with the settings. I selected ant or cable or something else that caused this. I can't see what selection it was the I went to and there is not menu in the manual or on the internet
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

I did check the whole manual of this player and there is no any setting that can flip the menu of VCR. Please click following link to download user manual copy for detailed instructions and setup settings..
