What CD/DVD player are you referring to here- do you have any brand or model info? Also do you have the original Vizio remote control nearby?

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 11 months ago

Thank you. On the remote there's an "INPUT" button you use to change the model the TV is on. Does that work?

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 11 months ago

Does the TV respond (change input mode) when you use that button?

it works says tv av rgb hdm1
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 11 months ago

Okay, so that is how you change the Input mode (you said it was stuck on TV mode). Is the DVD plugged into the TV- and can you select the correct mode (AV or RGB- however you have it plugged in)?

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 11 months ago

You had just said you could pull up those Input modes, so are you saying you can't arrow up to AV and hit OK- it doesn't work or.....??

I'm not available by phone. On the original Vizio remote there are arrows to the top, bottom, left and right of the "OK" button on the center of the remote. Can you find those?

says no signal
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 11 months ago

Then you're not selecting the Input that you've plugged into. The jacks on the TV are:

1) AV (red,white and yellow plugs)

2) RGB (red,blue,green,red and white plugs).

3) HDMI (HDMI plug).

Which one are you using?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
iam going to figure this out
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 11 months ago

Okay. If you're plugged into the red,white and yellow jacks- then you select "AV" using the Input/Arrow/OK buttons. If you're using the red,blue,green,red and white jacks- then you select "RGB" using the Input/Arrow/OK jacks.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Also, before you go, could you please click a POSITIVE RATING (by scrolling all of the way to the top of the page, and clicking 3-5 stars), so that I am credited for working with you today?

I’m a user of the site like you, so I don’t have any insight into your account, billing, or what you’re seeing on your end. You can contact Customer Service directly at: http://ww2.justanswer.com/help if you’d like.

Regarding the DVD question you came here for- did you need further assistance with that?
