Maybe there is an issue with the input you are using for the DVD player. Can you change inputs to the projector. Also there may be an autoformat option listed in the manual pg.23. It would be in the picture menu.

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".

If you have the DVR connected to the TV with the Coaxial and the HDMI that is probably causing the problem I work for a Cable company and have dealt with this problem on numerous occasions. Try just disconnecting the Coaxial cable from the cable box that should fix this issue.

Once you are there, you can prerss the LIST button on the remote and record and copy your selected shows. This is assuming you have a newer DVR. Model R15 or higher. thanks keep updated

No sound but plays the dvd fine


I think this is due to wrong Audio settings.
Try to change audio setting as Stereo/Right or Left/5.1 from the Audio setup of the Menu

No picture but has sound


Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!
