If you are using just a "yellow" ended cable for the video, maybe your custom settings are set to use "component"? I have been using this same dvd player for a while with the component video out and it works fine. I hope this helps.

According to the user manual, the following DVD media you can record with this unit are:
RECORDING: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN USE FOR RECORDING
DVD+R 2.4x, 4x, or 8x ONLY; DVD+RW 2.4x and 4x ONLY.
NOTES: It is NOT possible to record on CD-R or CD-RW discs. IMPORTANT: It is NOT possible to record content that is copy-protected. This is usually true for most pre-recorded DVD discs and most pre-recorded VHS tapes.
PLAYBACK: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN PLAY
DVD discs - DVD movie discs (DVD-ROM); DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD-RW (must be recorded using video mode or VM); DVD-R (must be recorded using video mode or VM and must be finalized). CDs (Audio CDs, CD-R, CD-RW) - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. mp3 discs are CDs (CD-R or CD-RW) that contain mp3 files. This product also plays CDs that contain JPEG files and Multisession CDs. Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CD (S-VCD) discs - Like DVD video discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. The difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc. VCDs typically have lower picture and sound quality than DVD discs. Super Video CDs (S-VCDs) can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound and video, with MPEG-2 standard video and MPEG-1 standard audio-but you must use DVD+R or DVD+RW discs to record on your DVD/VCR not S-VCDs. Additionally, S-VCD disc compatibility is dependent on which MPEG coding software, disc design software, and disc writer software are used; and the discs themselves.
(The above information is extracted from the user manual for this particular model and is a guide only)
I find it very strange that the user manual does not provide any information about DVD-R recording since this is a DVD recorder. I guess you could try those types of discs in it, otherwise it will playback finalised DVD-R discs recorded/burned in another machine.
I assume you have the original manual for this unit. If not, you may be able to download it free from various sites. (retrevo may have it but they may ask you for email address prior to downloading)
I hope the above information helps a tiny bit with regard to DVD formats for this unit.
DVP3120 can play all DVD, VCD,MP3 and Audio CD and Support the below formats
Audio Video format NTSC & PAL
DVP3120 will play CD, CD-R/CD-RW, Video CD/SVCD, DVD, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, DVD-Video Discs as well as MP3-CD, MP3-DVD, WMA-CD discs and MP3, WMA and JPEG Files.
You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.
