Hello, I'm Shahid. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this and I'll do my best to help but need more info to troubleshoot the problem.
- Could you please get me the complete model number written on back cover or side panel of TV and the DVD player in question?

This info will help me to suggest connection setup.

Thanks, ***** ***** the model number of DVD player, please?

TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

Thanks, ***** ***** best connection setup is to use HDMI cable, plug it in HDMI OUT port on back of DVD player and hook it into HDMI IN (1 or 2) on back of TV, turn On DVD and TV power, grab TV remote and push Source button to get input source list, select HDMI-1 or 2 (whatever is connected to DVD) to get picture on TV.

Please reply back with the result.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
