Question about Memorex MVD2042 DVD Player

Installed memorex mvd2042 dvd player, receive message "root"

Just connected memorex mvd2042 dvd player to my sharp hdtv. Put in a new disc received from Best Buy. The dvd player seems to go on and the play button lights up as well as the open/close button. The disc does not play, in the window it shows dvd in tiny letters. I pressed play button and receive message that says "root". The only buttons that seem to work are the power button and the open and close button. When I connected the dvd player to the hdtv using the user's guide it looks as though I connected it correctly with the audio left and audio right and the video connection. I just don't know what to do now.

Hook up dvd


Found this on http://www.satelliteguys.us/directv-forum/118015-hooking-up-dvd-player.html,

The Directv box should have at least two sets of out puts. You did not say what receiver you have and if the dvd is a player only of a recorder so its hard to say how to connect it.

If you have a dvd player only then take the output from the dvd player and connect it to you tv's second input, HDMI or component or what ever is a match between the two unites.

If you have a DVD-Recorder that you want to record programs from the directv receiver then take the second output from the receiver and connect it to the input on the DVD-Recorder and connect the output as above.

Hope this helps.
