Try first using the buttons on the unit to turn on the DVD, so to exclude the possibility of a faulty remote.
If the DVD player does not start at all, and there is not even the led light coming on, then the DVD power supply unit is faulty, in that case call Panasonic.
If instead the DVD stays in standby, with led light on, but does not start, then the DVD player is in protect mode.
Protect mode is a diagnostic mode that kicks in when a wrong voltage is detected. It can be caused by an internal fault or an external event like a power surge. The protection circuit will start, preventing the unit from turning on and keeping it in stand by.
If the problem is external, like a power surge, or a short on one of the connected cables, for example, the problem is fixed simply leaving the power cord disconnected for about thirty minutes.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same protect mode because of the video cable.

If the DVD is still going in standby after disconnecting, and there is no cable connected, then the unit has an internal fault.

In that case, if under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
Try first disconnecting and unplugging video cables.

DVD hockup to 37"VIZIO TV


There is no reason that any video player with RCA video/connections cannot be used with your new TV. However, you will not experience any increase in definition, even if your TV is High Definition.
If you used a Component connection from your DVD player (three cables for Video), all that is required is that your TV have Component cable inputs.

Vizio vw42lf hdmi problem


The factory menu won't help you diagnose anything. If you are having issues on both HDMI ports, definitely check the cable and that the output works on the DVD player, try this on another TV if possible. If all else fails, call Vizio @ 1-877-MYVIZIO and they will send one of us techs out to replace the main A/V board, that should resolve your problem.

I recently purchased a vizio 37" LCD tv, I have tried everything in hooking up my Sony DVD surround system to the TV. However, I found no audio output on this TV. Could you tell me if there is a way to hook the tv directly up to the surround without an output?
Is there something else I need to buy?
