First thing is to check the cables - it may also be a hardware issue in the signal input area if other inputs work flawlessly.

    this may also be a wrong setting.

    you should find that DVD still pumps out signal on more than one output so you should try connecting say by AV or S-video or whatever is available on the back of the DVD and TV to be used at least temporarily for menu adjustment

    and change the video setup
