Mike, we were watching a dvd and we were not given the original remote when our friend gave us this tv. it's a big one, but the only one we have and it's still good. We have dish service with a dish outside.Hope this helps. Thank you. Suzanne

What is showing right now on the tv screen?
Is the dvd player also a VCR?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Mike, there is nothing on the screen and it's just a DVD player.
Expert:  Mike G. replied 2 years ago.
Nothing on the screen is concerning...
If you turn on the dvd player and put in a disc, does the dvd come up on the screen again?

My husband figured it out finally. Thanks for being so kind. He had something stuck in the wrong port in the back of the tv, so he changed it and it worked! I am so happy! You are appreciated. C. Suzanne Sneed

I wrote to you yesterday and wrote it twice to make sure you get it. my husband found the problem and i thanked you for your time, but we figured it out. thanks again. Please do not charge me, because I did figure it out and we did it before this message and I wrote to you. I know you must have received my message.
