Had DVD player hooked up to new plasma TV and all was okay. Picture a bit out of proportion so opened menu from DVD remote to change picture size. When I clicked to new size the video disappeared and I've not been able to get it back. Audio is fine. Do not have user manual.

Check HDMI Sound settings: Enter Setup menu via remote, then Func. Setup / HDMI / Audio. You can choose from Amp (sound will be played via Yamaha), TV (sound will go straight via HDMI out to your TV and not play on Yamaha) and Amp+TV (Yamaha will play the sound and also pass it to the TV). Also what is your source? DVD or some network player? For example Yamaha cannot decode audio in AAC or other computer formats, so be sure to change the audio settings of your player to output PCM and not raw/bitstream.
I wish I could find the website that gave all the repair hints for this DVD player, but I downloaded the info, and can no longer find the site. Here is what it says with regard to your symptoms. I hope this helps. I have done all the mods the site suggested, but continue to have difficulty with the remote, tray opening, etc. I have 2 machines and used to love them, but frustration has taken it's toll.
Recovering from a condition with no TV picture Accidentally switching to PAL and getting a rolling black & white picture happens all the time to baffle users, especially on models with a System or P/N key on the remote. To get back your color and sound just switch to the proper system in the menu or put in a movie of the correct type and it can switch automatically or try the procedure below for resetting to the defaults. Sometimes owners will accidentally switch to Progressive Scan in the menu then get no picture at all. You can fix the no picture condition on the CH-300 by resetting the defaults to interlaced as mentioned in the users manual:
"To reset the VIDEO OUTPUT, turn Off the player, turn back On, open the disc tray and press and hold the Stop button on the player for 10 seconds to reset the scan mode." The Reset procedure doesn't seem to work on all versions but you can sometimes get a usable B&W picture allowing you to get to the menu and change the settings by connecting the composite video input of your display to the Red Pr/Cr or Green Y component output jacks on the rear of the cabinet. You can also go into the Menu and set it blind with the following key presses on the Remote: 1. With the unit Stopped, press Setup. 2. Press Enter. 3. Press the Down Arrow 3 times. 4. Press the Right Arrow Once. 5. Press Enter. On 300Z & 300ZS models if the video is set to Progressive Scan and you can't get a viewable picture on the Red or Green jacks try going into the Menu blind and changing it back with the following key presses on the Remote: 1. With the unit stopped, press Setup on the remote. 2. Press the Right Arrow Once. 3. Press Enter. 4. Press the Down Arrow 2 times. 5. Press Enter. 6. Press the Up Arrow 2 Times. 7. Press Enter. This should switch it back to Interlaced scan with S-Video and Composite output. To change the Parental Control setting on the CH-300 use the factory password of 3351. For the CH-400 use 1379.
if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..
Does the Sony surround upscale the signal from normal RCA to Component video? If so I have found that sometimes there can be signal sync issue. Meaning the signal that the component video convertor (inside the surround sound unit) sometimes struggles to give a clean component video signal. The TV then struggles to filter the signal correctly resulting in a jumping picture. Try plugging the DVD video only (yellow RCA lead) straight into the plasma and see what happens. You can also try playing with the signal frequency of the plasma, from 50 - 60hz. This will found in the menu of the plasma. Hope this helps. ST
Try looking on your tv's menu for "input" or "input select". This should allow you to switch to your front AV inputs. If that doesn't work hook into the coaxial cable in the back of the set (the one for your cable or satellite input. Plug the cable from the output or to tv side of your reciever into the input of the dvd player and run another lenghth of coaxial cable from the output of the dvd player to the coaxial input where your satellite or cable was plugged into the back of your set. When you want to watch a DVD just turn on the DVD player and the picture should come up. When you turn it off your satellite or cable should come right back.
