My Emerson DVD/VCR player has worked fine for about 10

Customer Question

My Emerson DVD/VCR player has worked fine for about 10 years, but now when I press the DVD button on remote or on unit itself, the (Vizio) tv displays "No Signal". The VCR still works fine. I have DIRECTV for my provider.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Vizio is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: I'm not at home right now so I don't know the model, but the Vizio is from 2013 or 2014.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: TV & VCR work fine.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: Since last Sat night. Everything worked fine the day before.
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Think that's it.

If you put in a film for the DVD does that work or is there still no signal?

Have you checked the lead(s) fro the DVD to the TV?what leads are you using?RCA or HDMI?if RCA what color leads?

This will not work for me. I am not home now so I can not answer your questions. I don't like this format so I am requesting a refund.
