Question about Panasonic PV-DM2799 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

Open Question

No picture or sound with TV/DVD/FM, VCR works, but cannot change volume

When I tried to watch TV just a few days ago, I was greeted with this problem. When on the TV setting, there is no picture and no sound. When I change the channel (I'm on cable), there is none of the usual static or snow. The TV displays "TV" and the channel on the screen. Same problem in DVD and FM mode. It displays all the normal stuff on the screen. With a tape, it plays, a picture shows up and is normal, but the volume won't change. I've tried turning the TV on and off in TV, DVD and FM mode, unplugged it, tried playing different DVD's and CD's, unplugging the cable box, unplugging the TV from the cable box...I think I've tried all the various ways anything could be plugged or unplugged, powered up and powered down. Nothing is connected to the TV besides the cable box. Any ideas?

SOURCE: No display with DVD, VCR, or tuner

It sounds to me without knowing the model or type unit that you may need to unplug tv AND take batteries out of remote for a few seconds, replug and start over. Hope it helps

If it was a setting on the television, then the cable info would also be affected. Try a reset on your cable box, as the cable info is generated within the box from the data stream, whereas the picture is streamed from the provider.

If the reset doesn't work, it's time to call the cable company - it's not a fault with your telly.

SOURCE: No sound from built-in DVD player on TV?

It sounds like the audio cable from the DVD drive may be loose or damaged. Did you wall mount the TV and this is when the problem started or has it always been like this? If its under warranty, contact the helpline on 0871 2000 463, be warned, if its becuase the cable is damaged by a wall mounting screw, its clearly evident and they will charge for repair.

VCR plays tapes, then within 5 minutes we lose sound, and the picture is "choppy". This does the same thing when we try to watch DVDs, and this started happening about a week ago - we've done no...

Check all the cables and wires,might need is to be replaced,if u still have the same problems,the device have problems,buy a new one,not worth the priced to repair it,the DVD recorder/VCR combo is pretty cheap these days.

We have sound but no picture i have sound but no picture. when you change inputs the word input is doubled up and distorted

There were not much info in the manual but it did suggest trying this.
1st- Unplug for a few minutes and then plug it back in. Or use the reset button look it up in the manual. MANUAL

2nd- Blank screen troubleshooting

• If you're trying to watch TV, change channels or press the ANTENNA button to switch tuners.
• If you're trying to watch something that's playing on a component connected to the TV (like a DVD or a VCR tape), press the TV
button on the remote, then press INPUT until you get to the correct video input channel.
• If you're trying to watch a component (like your DVD player or VCR), make sure the component connected to the TV is turned on.
• If you're trying to watch a component (like your DVD player or VCR), make sure the component is connected correctly.

Post back if non of these ideas work and explain if there are any lights flashing or changing colors on the front where the green light usually is. A fixya rating would be appreciated, thank you for stopping by Fixya!
