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.

Just bought an ONN dvd player and will not play burnt dvds. It says it will play DVD-R/RW. Any ideas to why it won't?

Burn your dvds in a proper way. If you burn your dvds as data dvd, it may not work on certain dvd players. Try different software or different PC to burn your dvds. Check the region code of your dvd player & the dvds burnt. They should match. You may find some region-free players.

No color display when i play DVD thru component.

First, check the settings on the DVD player's setup menu for output. Make sure it's set to either Component or Y YB YR or YBPR, and not to "Video". If your settings are correct, check the component cable and make sure it's plugged in correctly on both sides, TV and DVD. If still having a problem, try a new cable.
Finally check the input settings on the TV, if you still have a problem, try using a basic Audio Video cable on the Video out of the DVD to Video 1 in on the TV. That's about as much as you can check. If all fails, if possible, connect the DVD to another TV to check for the same problem to determine if it's a DVD player problem or a TV input problem. Hope this helps!

I just want to play discs only-no tv. i have everything connected except the hdi cable. i get no sound, no video when playing the dvd. is this because i need the hdi connected? i have also tried...


What is your current setup?

If your DVD player has both HDMI and Component connectors it should auto select between them.

Are you using the red white and yellow connectors?

What do you have connecting your DVD player to your TV?

Sorry need more information

Hooked up cable box, wii box and dvd player to new lg 50 inch 720p plasma tv... all external components work, however, dvds and wii only show in black and white - no color...

Connect the Wii and the DVD player to different ports on the TV to and any other device to the port in which the Wii and the DVD player were connected to check if the issue is with the port.

If other devices also display in black and white after connecting them to the port to which the Wii and the DVD player were originally connected then the ports require servicing.

Getting DVDs to play on LCD TVs

The LCD TV should have a "menu" option [Remote Control or Front buttons] to show you what u should connect to what
You should have an " INPUT " on your R\C or The Front of the TV to let u chose between TV [Antenna or Cable box ]or DVD from a output source.
