Re: no picture on tv when i turn on dvd. get split screen...
Give this a try. Using your user's manual, locate the "Configuring your recorder" section. Under this section there will be "System setup - general" subsection. Being that you are unable to see anything on your tv display you will need to use your manual as your display. Press the "SETUP" key on your remote. Once again using your manual as your display, scroll down to "Restore factory settings" and press "ENTER" As long as you are located in North or Central America and using interlaced video outputs you should have your normal display back.
Hope this helps.

I have the same TV and what is happing is the TV has 2 recievers in it to allow the PIP, So you have a power pack gone on 1 reciever the other is working, Your set has 2 power packs,1 for each receiver.
I had both of mine go, 150$ a piece to have fixed, good luck.
I had the same problem. It turned out to be my cable that went from the dvd player to the TV. I replaced with new cable & everything worked fine again. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
This sounds like a progressive scan issue (unit in P.Scan Mode) here is a C&P from the manual
Set "Alt Video Out" Highlight "Alt Video Out", then press the RIGHT button to select one of the following options: • S-Video - Select this if you are using the S-Video OUT jack on the rear panel to connect to a TV. • Component - Select this if you are using the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks on the rear panel to connect to a Progressive(480p) or Interlaced (480i) TV. • See your TV owner's manual to determine what type of TV you have. - Interlace : Interlaced Scan mode will work. - Progressive : Progressive Scan mode will work, and Video and S-Video will not work. • Press the Progressive button on the front panel if you have a Progressive scan TV only. Otherwise, the picture will be disturbed.
It appears that it has something to do with Progressive Scan been turned on. Progressive Scan is a feature built in your dvd player, wich by using it, it would give you a better picture//resolution on your tv, you need to use Component or HDMI cables to hook up the dvd to your tv if you want this settings, but if you are using composite RCA cables (Red,White & Yellow) and the Progressive funtion is turned on by accident, it may give you a split screen, black & white, or no picture problems. Also if you are using Component (Blue, Green & Red) cables, if one of them is unplug, the picture can be out of colors, or no picture. Check this things, if not, write back with more details about your set up.
This sound like a problem with the Closed Caption, on many sets if the C.C. is set to text a black box apears, and since it only happens on DVD you might look at the DVD menu and see if it has this Text featcher in the Closed Caption menu and turn it off
If the new player you hooked up is causing the spit screen then you have to go into the set up menu in the DVD player and take it out of prograssive scan.. Its in the wrong fornmat for your TV set. good Luck

If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service.
It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
