TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years 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.

there is nothing wrong with the tv it is a hitachi 57" protection tv rear projection there is just something wrong with it the dvd remote when I switch it to air and put in a dvd or vhs and hit play all there is snow the model of the dvd is pv-d4744s-k also none the buttons will react on the dvd remote the tv is from 1996
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago
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.
