Thanks for the info.- What is the model number/ brand of TV in question?
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
Since I still don't know what is model/ brand of your TV so providing generic info that might help.Please grab TV remote and find a button labeled as Input or Source or TV/Video, push it a few times to check different video inputs of TV as one will show you cable box picture and DVD player picture. Please reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.Thanks.

I never said TV is broken.In fact I asked you to find Input or Source or TV/Video button on Hitachi remote or TV itself to change video input as correct video input will show you DVD/VHS playback picture.- Can you get me the model number of TV?- Can you check what type of wire connected in DVD/VHS player and hooked into TV for picture and sound signals?I can't see things at your side from here and need your help to provide me info to assist you further.Thanks.
