Nothing you can do without the original remote. One cannot get into the setup pages. Replacement remotes usually don't work on this point either. They are missing this special setup button. In order to watch DVD, VCR, connect them with a SCART cable. When you switch on the player, the TV will detect this and go automaticaly to this input. If connected with RCA plugs, you can choose the input with the program Up/Dwn buttons on the TV set itself, going "lower" than channel 1.
What you have to do is select the proper item on the receiver since that is what you have the dvd player connected to. Pressing bd/dvd on the receiver is not necessarily the right thing to do. All receivers have an input or source or function button that will enable you to choose the correct area where your device is connected. The way you have this hooked up may not be right but first things first. You will need to have a movie playing in the DVD player so that you see the numbers advancing. Go to each input/source/function on the receiver until you hear the DVD. Ok great! Now getting the picture is a little more tricky so please follow along carefully.
The cables going from the DVD player to the receiver: The cables should be connected to where it says OUT on the DVD player or hdmi out from the DVD player to one of the receivers INputs. Once that proper connection has been confirmed make sure the receiver is connected to the television for both video and audio. You must have a video cable as well as audio cables between the television and the receiver or an hdmi cable. If it is not connected to the television in this way that is the problem right there. In fact you probably have a cable going from the television's audio OUT going INto the receiver. In order to see your DVD player you will also need to connect the receiver's video OUT to the television's video IN.
You will need the television's remote to be able to change the source/input/video/aux on the television. You might be able to change it with the cable box remote by pressing tv and then input/source/video.
ALTERNATELY: You can connect the DVD player's Video OUT directly into the television's INput. The DVD player's Audio OUT cables would be connected directly to the receiver's IN.
Either way you will have to choose the correct input on the receiver as well as on the television itself. Good luck!
It depends on which input you have the DVD plugged into. The pictures below show the different inputs. One of those should match what you see on the back of your DVD. If you don't know which, you can turn on your DVD player and hit the INPUTS button shown on the picture of the remote control shown below. Or, if it's connected to one of the inputs pointed to by the DIRECT SELECT arrow on the picture of the remote control, you can go there directly from watching the TV.
the cable in should go to the box and cable out from the box to the TV.These should all be coaxial cables correct?Hook up the DVD player to the TV using the red,white,and yellow cables is also correct.In order to watch a DVD,you have to use the input select button on the remote for the TV ONLY to change inputs.If you have a universal remote for the TV and not the original factory remote provided with the TV,you need to use the menu button located on the outside of the TV.I just searched on my flat screen and was unable to find an input select through the menu button.It may not be possible on this TV if you do not have the original remote and if you own a universal.My universal for one of my older TV's is about 7 years old so I do not know if newer ones have an input select option.If they do not,it is most likely due to patents and royalty payments which these cheap remote makers do not want to pay.Anyhow,let me know if this helps.Just comment here and i will get an auto link to your comments.Good luck!

It sounds like you may not be on the correct input selection on the tv to watch the dvd player. Ther are probably three or four inputs to choose from on your tv. whichever input you hooked the dvd player into on the tv is the same imput you have select using the tv's remote control in order to watch movies on the dvd player.
First, is the DVD player output (Video out, audio out) connected to the TV input?
Have you used the Yellow cable from DVD video out to the TV video in? Mixing the audio and video cables will result in no signal.
Have you selected the proper input with your TV remote control. Most plasmas accept a variety of input signals; you must select the right one.
I deal with a number of these issues. Usually the connections are made improperly or the correct input source is not selected with the TV remote.
Put a DVD in the player and press play. Be sure you have made the proper connection from DVD player video/audio out into an auxiliary or video input on the TV. These could be labeled Line 1 or Line 2. With the DVD playing, run through the input options on your remote control. The button might be marked source, video or input. The screen should display your choices i.e. video 1, video 2, etc. When you see your DVD program, you've got the right combination.
