We have a 60" Phillips Projection TV. When I turn ithe TV on the "on" button comes on (red) and when I turn on the stereo surround sound the sound plays through there, however there is no picture and no sound coming from the TV. It hooks through the DVD player into the Satellite receiver. The TV in our other rooms work fine, satellite fine, etc. Any thoughts on what is going on?

The way to turn off the tv speakers is to press the menu button scroll to the option category navigate to output select and choose variable. However just turning off the tv speakers will not cause the surround sound system to work with this television. Connecting the red and white composite audio cables to the television's OUTPUT will get you stereo sound. Some people opt to keep the tv's speakers turned on when doing this. In order to get the digital optical out to work between the television and the surround sound system you will have to be using input tv. You will have to be using the television's tuner with digital cable no cable box or with an over the air antenna. Did you make sure you connected the red and white cable to the surround sound aux or any composite input and choose the right function on it?
surround receivers are supposed to be able to turn a stereo signal into a surround signal. if the surround unit is producing just a stereo sound, then the tv is most likely outputting in mono, and not stereo; or there is no surround sound to decode..
Typically you need to consider the surround system as the central point for sound distribution (and in newer receivers, the distribution point for video signal as well). So you need to think of your TV and Satellite as sound sources and connect them to the IN side of your surround sound system. From the back of your TV then, look for the Audio OUT (commonly Red for right and White (or black) for Left. Connect these to the IN on the back of the surround system. Likewise for your satellite box. Then make sure you select the appropriate source on the surround system. If the system supports the video signal, you can route that as well. Beware that you'll need some sort of simulation (provided by the Phillips unit) to upconvert stereo to surround ... check the manual online. If you post model numbers for the Phillips and satellite units, we might be able to direct you more specifically (provided we can find manuals online)
check your remote to see if it's on mute...or mute is enabled...check
your connections from the tv to the cable box...if your using surround
sound...check those connections as well...if you have a dvd
player..hook it up to the tv and see if you get audio...let me know if
this helps...if not i will give you more things to check
