Our D1420 plays but there is no picture. Actually I can just faintly see something through the LCD screen, almost like there is no Contrast. I see a Contrast dial on top of the unit but it doesn't do anything. Anyone experience this? The unit is past its warranty... can I open it up and fiddle with something to make it work?

Since its a LCD take a flashlight and have the room as dark as possible and with the light look to see if a very very faint image of the picture can be seen or not---many of these sets use a "back light" for the brightness and if that's not on.......
If you look very closely, is there an extremely dark picture, or a solid black screen?
If it's an extremely dark picture, you just need a new backlight.
If it's a black screen, you either have a bad connection (broken, shorted or unplugged cable), or need a new LCD.
Let me know, and we'll go from there.
do you get a splash screen when there is no Disc playing ( something that says something like DVD VIDEO). If not and the scren is just always black then it sounds like the backlighting circuit has failed
Lately I cannot get a picture when I turn on the DVD operation--the TV screen, as always, is on INPUT (Extension).....the unit show PLAY, but the picture does not appear--and the TV screen stays blue! The audio is on, but no video.... This is something rather recent. However, if I unplug the electric-power source for the DVD-player, then sometimes the picture does appear, though not always. I have checked the manual but find no good answer there. Please let me know what to do....many thanks.
Hey, sounds like the backlight on the screen is gone, i aint sure where you could get a replacement for that model as its usually monitors i see the problem with.
ie the screens is like black with very faint outline of the picture.
Hope this helps
