I'm reviewing your details and will reply shortly.

Unplug the TV's power cord, then press and hold the Eject button while plugging it back in and continue to hold eject for 10 seconds and release. If the TV doe snot turn on and try to eject then press power once, then press and hold eject for another 10 seconds. If this does not work repeat the steps up to three times and let me know what happens.

it's still showing up as no signal
Expert:  Aric replied 8 months ago.

This is the first I heard of No Signal- your question said you couldn't get a DVD out? Can you elaborate?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
it's showing up as no signal on the screen and the DVD won't come out
Expert:  rwhill1 replied 8 months ago.

Hi,

Try using something like a thin flat ruler with some double-sided tape on one side to remove the DVD.

I guess it shows no signal because it thinks it's playing the DVD.

I hope that helps, Best Regards,

Rich
