DVD player won't play

Setup all cables correctly, TV works very well. But it won't play any DVDs. Had a new one, just out of the box, and all DVD play is distorted. Any ideas?

    We just purchased this t.v. and the dvd has only worked a few times. It does not matter if you put dvd in before pushing imput and going to dvd or after.I would like a proscan phone #. Sears would charge to take it back and they say they aren't going to care them anymore.

    We just bought one from circuit city. On day 2 we tried to play a dvd, inserted the disc and no reponse. On top of that, the dvd will not eject. The screan just says no signal. However, the tv portion work fine. Of course circuit city says no returns and gives a phone number to call. So far no response after a week!

    Started having problems the day I brought it home. Couldn't even insert a DVD because it was as if something was already in there. Contacted GE Warranty Co. which I purchased through Circuit City and the repair service has had my TV for almost 2 weeks now. He said a new DVD player would have to be ordered if he could find it. Still waiting....

    Purchased the tv, got home, set it up and DVD player did not work. Could not return to Circuit City because they are liquidating and not accepting returns.

Advice to be sure label faces away from front (shiny side toward front) is correct. Also, before inserting DVD push the INPUT button on the control until "DVD" shows. To return to TV you will have to use the INPUT button again to re-set.

Make sure you have inserted the correctly; the label faces away from the TV/DVD player.

I can't get the DVD player to view dvd on tv

hi konni.
this is all i could find .
DVD player not working with TV By Charlotte Parker 25 Aug 2017
You've got your Sky Box, your TV, your DVD Player and your surround sound; you've also got your digi-box, your DVD recorder, Blu-Ray Player. With all that equipment, if something goes wrong it can be tricky to track down the issue. This article explains why your TV isn't playing DVDs and how to get it sorted out.
Figuring out the problem
Figuring out why your DVD Player isn't working with your TV is a process of elimination, so work through the steps below to figure out the cause of the problem.
The problem could be:
  • The connector cables/connections.
  • The DVD disc itself.
  • The DVD Player's optical reader (the lens which 'reads' the DVDs).
  • The TV.

The connector cables/connections

Before doing anything, check all your connector cables. Make sure that all connections are in properly, and that the cables are in the right place.
One of the most important connections is the cable that runs between your TV and the DVD Player. If it isn't in place, then your TV can't read the information from the DVD Player and the film won't appear on your TV.

The DVD disc itself

Check for scratches, chips, smudges and any other marks. Test the disc isn't the problem by trying a different one in the player. If the new disc works, then the first one might need replacing.

The TVTry changing channels. Lots of TV's have a default channel specifically for DVD players. Have a look between the channels to see if the DVD menu appears.
On modern televisions, especially those connected to Digi-boxes or Sky Boxes, there's usually a 'Source' button on the remote control. Find it and go through until you reach the right setting for playing DVDs. To go back to watching normal TV channels after the DVD has finished, go back to the source button and change back to the original source.

That should be all you need to know to get your DVD player working with your TV
if none of above works then try putting a lens cleaner through it to try and clean the lens that reads the disc.

Color distortion when playing DVDs

If the player has other outputs try connecting the player to the tv using one of them, ie: use the A/V output instead of HDMI from the player. If the problem goes away there is something wrong with the input on the tv.

Dvd will not play on tv

If the cables have been installed correctly with matching color codes and your TV has been set for DVD player input, you should see something. Try swapping players to find out whether the old one works. If so, there may be something wrong with your new player.

What causes colored stripes when playing commercial DVDs

Check your cables first to see if they are causing it. Faulty cables can cause all sorts of problems. If that doesn't solve it it could either be that the colour settings are wrong, for example NTSC instead of PAL or vice versa. Sometimes it is something to do with copy protection. In some cases counterfeit discs, or faulty discs. And in some cases a fault on the DVD player.

Does the JVC AV-56P776 have any kind of lock out on it went thru setup it plays dvd's but not regular tv

if plays DVDs via rear connections what have you got hooked to it for regular tv reception? Hooked to the coax fitting, using antenna or cable or sat with a box or not?

Good news is if it works with DVD set is likely ok and you have some other issue----just need some more information to decide what that issue is.

My player seems not able to upscale the signal from my antennea and DVDs

Upscaling will only occur when playing DVDs. You have to use an HDMI connection from the DVD player to the tv. For upscaling of DVD's you will also have to setup the upscaling resolution in the DVD player's setup menu. Be sure to set the resolution to one that your tv will support.

If your tv does not have a HDMI input, then you will not be able to use the upscaling feature.

Upscaling will not occur on antenna signals. This is not possible because the hardware (inside DVD player) is only meant to upscale DVD video.

Again, to upscale DVDs ONLY, you will have to have an HDMI cable going from DVD player to TV, set up your upscaling options on your DVD setup menu and have a TV that has a HDMI input and is capable of recieving the upscaled resolution you have set your DVD player to.

If you have any further question regarding this, let me know!

Sony rdr vx410 dvd player playing some dvds in black and white

  • DVD's are standard definition video sources. Number of lines output is 576 lines, whereas your HD TV set has 720 or 1080 lines. This difference may result in a poorer image. However some DVD players are able to “upscale” picture to obtain a very good picture. Check if your DVD player has the following connectors: YUV, DVI or HDMI. For more information, refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • Some HDMI or DVI featured DVD players also have an internal processor that can upscale pictures from a DVD to 720 or 1080 lines to provide an excellent picture from a standard definition disc to your HD TV set. Those settings are available from the setup menu of your DVD player. Please refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • If your DVD player does not have those connectors and only has a SCART connector, or S-VIDEO, or composite, there is not much to do to improve the picture quality. Just make sure that you are not using the cheapest cables and that the picture settings of your TV set are correctly adjusted.

  • Some high end TV sets have a picture improvement engine that can soften a noisy image. Make sure that it is activated from the setup menu of your TV set. Please refer to the instruction manual of your TV set.

  • If people and objects have weird white outlines around them. This may suggest that your TV sharpness is set too high. Make the correct sharpness adjustments from the setup menu of your TV set.

  • Make sure you use good quality cables and that your cables are not too long (less than 5 meters long).

I have a HD tv connected to a digital cable box. I hooked up the DVD recorder with the wires it came with, but it would not play or give me the menu. However it was correctly hooked up. So the next day I connected a HDMI wire from the DVD recorder to the tv and everything works now.
