probably you need to change your input setting using the menu in your tv. use your remote control in finding that menu. good luck!

you have to hit the vcr/tv button on the remote. there is a separate line that works for games and dvd devices.

SOURCE: Samsung CXD2512 TV/VCR Combo...Cannot hook up DVD player

We also don't have a remote. We hooked a DVD/VCR combo to the Samsung combo by attaching the cable from the cable line to the DVD player and an additional cable from DVD to TV and it used to work but after we lost the control, the DVD can only be listened to but not seen. The VHS from the DVD player works perfectly though.

When we had the remote (before connecting the other combo) we used line-in to see a DVD or VHS using the yellow red and white cables from the Samsung to the other player.

SOURCE: RCA 20" TV/DVD Combo - DVD Player says discs not compatible?

Does it work on store bought DVD's?If it does it means it's not compatable with homemade dvd's on pc's or other recorders.If it dose not you have a dirty lens.If a lens cleaning cd doesn't work,the dvd deck has to be replaced,probably exspensive.

This is a resolution mismatch problem. One of the devices will not accept the resolution of the other. Try another type of connection or try another input.

Most DVD players and maybe the Wi are connected via rear audio and video input jacks so that may be your issue.

check the connection cable to the tv, unplug this an replug it to see if this helps.
if you used a cheaper HDMI cable for example the connectors are very wobbly and often make poor contact....

What is your TV input connection? Are you using Antenna? Cable? Dish?

The Unusable Signal sounds like the TV is not getting a signal. Does your TV have a built in HD Tuner?

If you are using Antenna you might want to try setting up the connections and it should search for quality channels that you get good signal strength. If you are on channel 2 and there is no over the air channel 2 it may say "unusable signal".

Hello Mike:

The issue that you are having is with your small signal board and it needs to be replaced, it sounds like the microprocessor on that board is getting locked up.
