It is probably in progressive scan mode - hence why you get no picture. Your TV may not support progressive scan, so you can try the following:

Without a disc inserted, but with player on, press and hold STOP button (on front of unit not remote) for 10 seconds, then release. This should reset the video output of the player back to normal interlace.

I cannot guarantee the success of the outcome, but it seems to be the standard reset solution for this and similar budget priced DVD players.

Fingers crossed that it does not require further action.

Have sound,no picture


Do you have it hooked up using the component cables?(red, blue, green cables?) You need to use the component cables to use the progressive scan feature. So if you have it hooked up using the yellow rca jack, you will have to switch cables.

DVD player wont show picture


to turn it off select connection method 3 above and progressive scanning mode, to set the mode, set progressive to off in the display menu so that the p scan indicator light on the front panel goes out. do all of this in interface mode. you can also do this by pressing and holding PLAY > on the front of the unit for more than 5 seconds, still watch for the p scan indicator to go off. this works best when the unit is connected directly to the television.

Sound but no picture


Apparently your TV doesn't support the progressive mode (480p). You should be able to turn it off by pressing the pause button on the recorder for about 5 seconds, untill it turns off I guess. Hope it works
