When you first open the dvd player the screen flashes then goes black. the first time i tried it you could see images but the screen was very dark. Is the screen going out? Got it from a thrift store so no real money lost.

your TV has burn screen or traces.it comes from one image left on the screen for too long, it can get burned into the screen, making it visible at all times. You can actually eliminate most screen burns with the use of a PC computer and a black and white screen saver. This trick eliminates screen burn after a period of several minutes because the black and white screens flash quickly, removing all traces of color from the screen. This will eventually eliminate any burned images on the LCD screen.you can do it by creating a DVD picture slide with only black and white image.you can use a computer to make DVD picture slidefirstgo to paint brush and draw only white then save as white.jpg.secondburn it into nero or other dvd burnerthirdplay it to your DVD player connected to you LCD TV.it has to be played in full screen
let the white image display on your HDTV for several hours or even overnight. It should remove any burned-in images or ghosts.hope this help............... thanks....
Hi I've repaired a lot of these monitors and every one seemed to do something strange. In this case my first thought is that somehow he monitor firmware got zapped when the card was damaged. Although this could certainly fall into the category of an open ground in the cable. My suggestion at this point would be to take it to a reputable repair person and get their estimate or take a look at www.micromendllc.com.
There should be video in and video out on the dvd player. You shouldhave the wires going from video out on the cable box to video in on the vcr. Then you should have video out on the vcr going into the tv
I've had a similar problem, It was not the TV or the DVD player but the SCART junction box (a separate unit that automatically sent the live input to the output SCART socket, to fix I just uses a spare empty input socket. if you don't have one of these units try with a different SCART socket or AV input also try replacing the leads between the player and TV.
