Start with the sound , do you have some speakers or amp that can take rca connnectors if so plug in to audio out and if you hear sound then the video is presumed ok too , likely some setting or cable issue then. if no sound the the proc amp is shot.

Hi, it sounds like your problem is that you've selected the wrong "video input" for your DVD player. Your new television most likely has at least 3-4 (sometimes 6-7) different inputs for video. With your DVD player connected and turned on, press the "Source" button on your TV to cycle through the different inputs. Be sure to wait 2-4 seconds between selections to give your TV enough time to switch inputs. If your DVD player has "color coded" output cables, it's most likely a "component" video connection. See if one of your video inputs on the TV is called "Component". Some other video types are Video, DTV, HDMI, SVideo, Component, Composite, RGB, PC Input, etc...
HMMM. DVDs connect to Video, not channels. Your direct TV will be connected to Video In. I recommend connecting the DVD with Component or HDMI for best results. You select the DVD with 'Video' or 'Source' on your TV remote.
Check with other DVD disks, see if it play,might have bad disk in that one,like scratches,cracks,or smushes.The disk u playing is a chamerical DVD Disk right?Not burn disk?Might just go in Ur DVD player just reset every setting back to the factory setting.
You have to make sure that the video output from the DVD player is connected to a video output unit which could be your TV, or if your computer has video inputs you might connect your DVD player to it. Then you have to set your TV or computer to the correct display. For example if your DVD player is connected to the VIDEO 1 input of your TV, you would use your TV remote to set your TV to VIDEO 1.
I recommend the obvious solution which is to plug it into an S-Video compatible TV, VCR or DVD player then change your settings. You could make it really for yourself if you want by looking for some software that you burn onto a CD which you make bootable and when you run it in the player it resets everything to factory default settings. But seriously make it easy on yourself and just plug it into an S-Video compatible device (TV/VCR/DVD, preferably a TV for ease, though it doesn't make any real difference). Best of luck to you anyway!
I have two models to recomend, one is the Philips DVD R 357H/37 that has a hard disk for you to save TV shows and you can burn them later on CD's or DVD's, or you can burn them directly. It's around $290 and can also play any DVD or CD.
Another model is the Panasonic DMR-EZ27K that lack's of a hard disk, which makes it cheaper (around $200), but still can record CD's or DVD's directly from the TV.
Hope it helps.
I'm assuming you're using the yellow ended video cable and two audio cables hooked up to your TV to display the signal. If so, I would just make sure they are connected in the correct output jacks on your dvd player and that they match up with the input jacks on your TV. If so, then I'd try another DVD player to see if that one plays OK.
