How is the player plugged into the TV set? Are you using the S-video or RCA type plugs? Have you tryed a differant input on a differant TV? It could also be your cables. If you tryed differant cables and a differant input then your problem is a broken connection on the video jack or in the video output processor IC inside the unit and thats not a user fixable problem, Sorry. Good luck

I have a 46" DLP TV, I have sound but no picture. But I can play a DVD, and it works fine.

Does the dvd have picture when playing or no picture no matter what?

You can try switching cables.

Do you know if the screen is on?

The DVD player on my Dell Inspiron-530S won't work, you can hear it like it's trying to load but the play screen never comes up.

no, your dvd drive has gone bad. to check if it is working or not your try to manually open the content of the cd and try copy on the hard drive. if it copies fine then the cd is good if not cd is bad. you might get a error message of bad sector or data randomization.
if it does not open at all the cd drive is bad.

Panasonic DVD-S31 won't play sound

Did you change the audio cable, "just to rule out" If it won't work on the Tv or stereo, there probably is a audio processor problem, or a issue with the laser pickup assembly, to repair this kind of problem would not justify the cost.

My RCA XL100 is hooked up to cable and works perfectly fine. We've had it for ages and the picture is clear, sound is beautiful, and it gets along fine with my universal remote. There's just one...

Some of their very old sets the video input was located on channels in the 90's; Try scrolling down from 99 to 90 to see if you locate the video input; this is just the way they did things in the older sets.
