My dvd player plays dvds fine on a TV, but when I try to watch it on the screen, no picture shows up. I don;t think there is a backlight problem, as the screen is always bright. Is there anything I can try or would it take someone more skilled to do anything productive? Thanks!

my dvd player doesn't play all types of discs, especially homemade like ones ripped from a home computer. However, i do not play many dvds, yet i have replaced the players many times. I dont think that most dvd players are built to last. Sounds like you have 1 built-in (to tv). The players are cheap now-- your better off saving the headache and replacing it- The last one i bought was $30.00 on sale-get a cheap 1 cause i think they all have a short lifespan.
try turning the channel up or down with the tv remote to input 1 or 2 depending on which one is being used for the dvd player. tv should use input 1. dvd should be on input 2.
when turning the channel set it to show the dvd screen, then go up 1. if it doesn't show, return and go down 1.
You need to bypass your A/V tuner for your video connections (if possible). Plug your video directly into the TV and audio into the tuner. This will also give you a cleaner signal/picture as it does not have to processed by your tuner BEFORE it goes to your tv. Think of it as cutting out the middle man. Your tuner is best left for powering your speaker and not controlling your video despite all of the available connections in the back of it.
I would also get rid of your VHS and cassette players as they are dead technology. Clean up your system and remove the clutter. This will lessen your chance of getting interference. Good luck!!
If you open the Radeon software utility, in the advanced screen settings you should be able to set "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" to on for the TV screen.
Then all you have to do is open your video player software and drag its window across to the tv, then maximise it.
If you are having trouble doing this, some video player programs, especially dvd players playing dvds will not show the picture on the tv. If you want to watch .avi files then the best free player around at the minute is DivxPlayer - go to http://www.divx.com to download.
Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)
I had the same problem with my recorder except that it wouldnt play any discs at all.. I finally unplugged the recorder and left it unplugged for 16 hours. Now it is fine. I am not getting any error messages.
