I put a DVD in and was watching it. I hit Stop on the DVD remote twice and all of a sudden I don't have a picture, but I still have sound. We've tried all kinds of scenarios with the TV, to no avail. We've tried the Video and Audio cables and nothing changes. Any suggestions?

Re: I have sound, but no picture
Most of the newer electronics are computer controlled. It is also best to unplug them for a couple of minutes (for a reset), and then try ALL of the TV input choices, as these have a tendency to change and not tell you
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It depends on which input you have the DVD plugged into. The pictures below show the different inputs. One of those should match what you see on the back of your DVD. If you don't know which, you can turn on your DVD player and hit the INPUTS button shown on the picture of the remote control shown below. Or, if it's connected to one of the inputs pointed to by the DIRECT SELECT arrow on the picture of the remote control, you can go there directly from watching the TV.
You can try the procedure for the VM9311TS model (the one I have) - I
don't know if it'll work but it's worth trying. Put in a DVD, and let
it start playing. Then hit STOP on the remote twice, and enter the code
1264. If you were able to see the actual movie
at this point, you'd see a menu pop up. Push down twice, then ENTER. At
this point the blue screen should clear and you should see the movie
itself. You'll have other options on that menu, like a macrovision
option to allow you to see burned DVDs. Set what you like, then on the remote, hit SYS SETUP twice to lock in your choices.
The DVD player has accidently set to the wrong video ouput or P.Scan mode.
Remove the disc from the DVD tray and press the P.Scan button on the DVD remote control untill the pictures comes back. You should receive the picture within three clicks on the P.Scan button.
This will work without having to do anything to the pink wire - just
tape it and leave it alone. But the next time you unhook your battery
cable you will have to put the code in again.
Put in DVD When the blue screen comes up, hit STOP twice on the remote punch in 1,2,6, and 4 hit DOWN 1 time hit PLAY/ENTER (although you can't see it, this turns off the parking brake bypass security feature)
**at this point the display became visible and you will now see the menu which makes it much easier. hit DOWN one more time to change macrovision hit PLAY/ENTER hit SYS SETUP twice to save and exit menu
From now on, you can just put in a movie and it'll start - no more grounding or toggle switch procedure, and you don't have to use the e-brake.
Try this (this is the procedure for the 9311TS model, which I have, and it should be the same for yours too) - put in a regular movie, and do what you need to do in order to be able to watch the movie (cycle the e-brake handle, toggle a switch - however you have it set up). When the movie comes on, using the remote, hit STOP twice, then type in 1264, and a hidden menu will appear. This menu has the macrovision toggle - turn that on. While you're in there, you can also disable the parking brake bypass (turn the bypass on - no more e-brake handle or toggle switch!). Then hit the SYS SETUP button on the remote twice to save the choices you made, and you should be able to watch the burned movie then. You'll also find that it's nice to be able to just stick a DVD in and have it start playing.
turn on the player, start the radio option, go into the setup menu, tap the language tab, ON THE REMOTE press "stop, stop, 5,4,3,2,1" This will bring up the secret menu, you do not need to connect the pink wire
