Disconnect whatever's connected to the blue wire behind the unit, and re-connect it to the blue/white wire instead.

I have a question. Everything is working perfectly except for there is no picture on the TV nor DVD. It was working fine until the other day when I messed around with some wires seeing if any of them were loose. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: power won't stay on, can't get dvd out

One of the motors in the mechanism died making a near short circuit. When the DVD tries to energize the motor, a lot of current passes through the circuits making the PSU protection to shut down the power supply to avoid damage or fire.
To get the movie out, you'll have to disassemble the DVD player and remove the disk. After that the DVD will be unusable because of the failing motor. The replacement often is more expensive than buying a new Chinese DVD player.

ok you have two possible problems one is the remote wire comeing from the brain is hooked up wrong use the second remote wire to the remote hook up for your amp the one you have hooked up is for the power antena if you had one thats why it works when you have the radio on.
ok now the second problem is with your zone cotrole sound like to be on try playing with your audio controls.
or at the very bottom of the screen is about 3or 4 buttons use those to change through the other options while the screen is up .

My bauhn TV screen stopped working. DVD plays sound but no picture. Can the TV be reset or rebooted


You can try unplugging the units--no picture often means the DVD has a dirty or failed optical unit.

Player has sound of the movie but the screen is just white no picture


There is a small button on top when the screen closes it turns off the display. While the movie is playing press the small button with a small pointing object and see if the display shows something on the screen for a few second and then off (you can sometime see the movie playing but very dim). then there is a problem with the switch not switching the display back to normal. Hope this helps...

I have an RCA HD52W59 TV that will turn on and picture is fine for awhile, then it will fade to total black. Still has sound and does not power off. Nothing will show on screen, not even menu options....


Thats a deflection problem which is causing the CRTs to shut down during deflection loss. The deflection board will need replacement. You can get replacement deflection boards from www.tvrepairworld.com

Screen froze during lightning storm. no picture now. When powering on screen lights and then dims - no picture, no sound


You might have had a power surge.Try unplugging your TV for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. If you cannot get a picture from any device such as a DVD player and cable then your TV needs serviced call a repair man. Good Luck!

Cannot turn off progressive scan mode on blue screen to play dvd


If you have not already seen this or done it - it worked for us:

On page 18 of the user manual under Progressive scan there is a Caution which says - If you set Progressive Scan to On in error, you must reset the unit. 1) Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "dISC " is displayed on the display window. 2) Press STOP (9) and hold it for more than five seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and a picture once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

SCREEN WON,T STAY LIT UNLESS I TOUCH IT


You are simply in blackout mode. This is so at night you aren't blinded by the glow of a screen. Here are instructions right from the manual to turn on or off.

Blackout Mode On and Off
When Blackout mode is turned on, the monitor display will turn off to
reduce power consumption.
This additional power enhances the sound quality.
1 Touch [VISUAL] on the main source screen.
The VISUAL selection screen is displayed.
2 Touch [OFF].
The backlit-display portion goes out.
3 Touch [OFF] again to cancel the display backlight.
To make the setting, set to “Setting the VISUAL Touch Button” (page
34).
If any button on the unit is pressed during Blackout mode, the
function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation before
returning to Blackout mode.
While the backlighting is turned off, the function indicator
