Connect another DVD player to an unused input port on the back of the tv. If there is a HDMI port available connect it there if the dvd player has HDMI. Then all you have to do is change the input number on the tv. If you get picture but no sound, use RCA audio cables from the player to the tv. Not all HDMI cables pass audio.

SOURCE: DVD player not working

It could be that the DVD player has a bad home switch in the dvd player or that it doesn't know that the door is closed. I have run into similar situations with CD Players years ago. Also keep in mind to unplug unit and let sit for 1 minute to let microprocessor reset. Let me know if that helps. Thank you ...Jay

Testimonial: "Thanks a lot! It worked. Now I'm afraid to use the DVD player. Maybe I'll put in an old kid movie that we don't watch anymore and see if it works. "

I need the codes to program a magnavox tv with built in dvd player with this remote


Your universal remote should have a code search feature that allows you to search through its library to find a code or codes that will work. You might need two separate codes for the TV and the DVD player.

I bought a sony led tv, but i don't have any english instruction so that i can play DVD on my sony TV.Can u help me?


Here is a manual for your unit http://www.docs.sony.com/release/KDL40HX800_qs.pdf

As far as watching a DVD, I wasn't sure if your TV has a built in player or not. If you have a built in player simply insert the DVD and change the input channel to DVD. If you do not have a built in player, check to see how your DVD player is attached to the TV. Insert a DVD, then cycle through your inputs with your Input or Video Source button until you see the DVD playing.

Hope that helps!

I have a 30 year old tv w/cable. I want to install a dvd/vcr combo player. What kind do I need? I've tried one and it didn't have the right connection.


If the original TV doesn't have audio/video inputs, you'll need a DVD/VCR player that has a built-in RF modulator. A RF modulator takes the audio & video and modulates a RF carrier to one of the channels that your TV can receive. In the U.S., this is usually channel 3 or 4. If the DVD/VCR player has a built-in tuner, connect your cable to the RF input of the DVD/VCR player and the RF Output of the DVD/VCR player to the cable input of the TV. This way, you can receive your cable channels through the DVD/VCR player and watch movies as well. If your DVD/VCR player does not have a built-in tuner, you can put a RF switch inline that will allow your TV to either receive the cable signal or signal from the DVD/VCR player.

Good luck!
