Customer Question
I have a new...

I have a new Vizio model D32f-E1 which is working fine, but we just bought a SONY DVD player and I cannot get the TV to recognize it. I have tried every cabling (RCA type) combination I can think of and I still get no signal messages. I must be doing something wrong, but I'm stumped..

Technician's Assistant: How old is your DVPSR210P?

We just bought it today at Best Buy.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your DVPSR210P?

Is that the DVD?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

I have tried various cable connections trying to follow the instructions in both the TV manual and the Sony DVD manual.

I don't think so. There is a variety of ports on the TV, but there are only the color coded receptacles on the Sony DVD. No Ethernet port on it either. I have another Sony DVD player that had an Ethernet connection, but not this one.
