Let me know what equipment you are using:

What TV?
What DVD player?
How are they connected? (what sort of cable)

Without this infortmation, the only thing I can suggest is to toggle through all your AV channels in the hope your picture will appear. If that doesn't work, come back with some more specifics & I'll try to help.

No sound or picture from dvd

And you have selected the HDMI2 input in the TV menu? If yes, try the dvd on another TV, if you have one. Also try reversing the HDMI cable.

My Samsung TV picture is supplied via a HDMI lead

yes you need to connect audio out from the tv to audio in on the dvd surround. you need the red/white phono to phono leads, simply connect together and select audio (av,au) on the input selection.

Dvd plays can see picture but no sound

Check all your connections.
Also please let me know how you have it connected currently, what is the model of the dvd player and the television. Are you running through an AV receiver?
one ting to try is connecting ONLY the red and white audio connectors from teh dvdplayer to the correct input on the tv while it is on. if you hear a slight "pop" [not harmful] you have the right input and there might just be a problem with the dvd player itself.
be sure you have the right audio track selected or try playing a cd.

DVD playback no playback

Sounds like the scart lead is not in straight. Scart connectors have the audio pins at one end, and the video pins at the other. If the lead isn't in straight then you often get sound and no picture and vice versa.

Check the connection by pushing the scart lead in securely. (Both DVD and TV end of the lead)

Failing that could be a dodgy lead.

Goodmans Tv wont show dvds

Usually with DVD players, picture & no sound, or sound & no picture is caused by the scart lead not being plugged in properly.

Sound pins are at one end of the connector and audio pins at the other.

If you are using scart make sure that the plugs at both ends are pushed in all the way. The plastic part of the plug should just touch the socket.

If you are using S-Video (Round connector with 4 pins) you also need to connect a twin phono-phono (Red & Black or White) lead to carry the audio, as S-Video only carries video.

Connecting tv to dvd player

It should be fairly straight forwards.. Simply get the SCART to SCART Cable.. Connect up the Two, DVD to Screen, turn them on, selecting any input/outputs Format etc, setups from any Menus...then start player select "Play" & ya should see the Picture & hear the sound...
