My video screens for my car dvd player are not working. I have tried switching the cables and screens around. I'm now assuming that it is a problem with the dvd player itself. The screens don't even appear to power up; however, I can hear the disc spinning in the dvd player. Is it just time to get a new player? Thanks, Mel

Usually when I hear of solid colors that display on a TV, my first solution would be to change the cable. We know your DVD player is working as you connected it straight to your TV and you report no problems. I assume you are using a composite cable (red, white, and yellow) Red and White being the Audio and Yellow your video.
But since your player works...and your tv works under the same input, then the only other issue would be the output cable from the receiver or the actual composite input or output connector is faulty.
try a video game system in place of the dvd player through your receiver..if it happens again, then change the receiver's output cable...if it still persists then your reciever's output connector is faulty.
Some DVD players have a switch that allows you to choose video or s-video output. You could check the position of the switch (if you have one). Your audio cables may be good but your video cable could be bad (I assume you are using a standard three cable setup with coloured hoods: right audio red, left audio white and video yellow). Your DVD player could be defective. Also check whether you have activated progressive scan function by mistake or not, because if you do it you need to deactivate it. Try turning on the DVD with no disc on the tray then push the stop button for 5 sec .
Please get back to us if you have any further query or else accept the solution.
Make sure the video connector between the DVD player and the TV is pushed all the way in. If that doesn't help, try switching video cables (if you don't have any extras, they are REALLY cheap). Then try switching DVD players (if you don't have or want to buy another, just borrow someones).
If it isn't the DVD player, it's the TV. Assuming everything else is working (regular TV is in color) you should be able to fix it by changing what video plug type you use (IE: switch from S-video to component or HDMI).
i had this problem, u need to earth a single cable, i think its either brown or green, basically the system wont let u watch films while driving, so bring up the screen which says (parking off) n touch the wires to some metal until it switches to (parking on) shud work then
Assuming you have picture on the TV when hooked up to cable, antenna or satellite I would take the DVD player to a friends house to see if it worked on their set (using your cables of course). If you can't get a picture on your TV no matter what, then it could be either the Jungle IC or EEPROM IC inside the set. Since it displays "No Video Signal" on the screen, that leaves out the High Voltage section of the TV. My main suspicion would be the video cable or settings on the DVD or TV.
Depending what cables you have, try plugging only the yellow cable into "video out", I previously had red, white, and yellow cables plugged into "comopents out" and only got black and white. Doing only the yellow into video out gave me color.
