TThe menu options provided when using the remote do not provide for DVD player and I get blank screen when tuning into Channel 3. I get no video. DVD player is hooked up properly to ports on front of TV. The remote doesn't seem to provide on the menu an option for DVD player hookup or DVD mode. I might need help using the remote. Please email me with any suggestions.
Try looking on your tv's menu for "input" or "input select". This should allow you to switch to your front AV inputs. If that doesn't work hook into the coaxial cable in the back of the set (the one for your cable or satellite input. Plug the cable from the output or to tv side of your reciever into the input of the dvd player and run another lenghth of coaxial cable from the output of the dvd player to the coaxial input where your satellite or cable was plugged into the back of your set. When you want to watch a DVD just turn on the DVD player and the picture should come up. When you turn it off your satellite or cable should come right back.

The CC (closed caption) option is usually set (on or off) from your TV's menu screen. From your remote (or TV), select the Menu, then look for Settings, and when you see CC .... you can turn it off. If you provide the TV model, more specific instructions can be provided.
the cable in should go to the box and cable out from the box to the TV.These should all be coaxial cables correct?Hook up the DVD player to the TV using the red,white,and yellow cables is also correct.In order to watch a DVD,you have to use the input select button on the remote for the TV ONLY to change inputs.If you have a universal remote for the TV and not the original factory remote provided with the TV,you need to use the menu button located on the outside of the TV.I just searched on my flat screen and was unable to find an input select through the menu button.It may not be possible on this TV if you do not have the original remote and if you own a universal.My universal for one of my older TV's is about 7 years old so I do not know if newer ones have an input select option.If they do not,it is most likely due to patents and royalty payments which these cheap remote makers do not want to pay.Anyhow,let me know if this helps.Just comment here and i will get an auto link to your comments.Good luck!

I had this problem. I am aware that this thread is pretty old now but it may be useful for others who are looking forward solution. Try pressing the DVD AV OUT button on the remote, work on mine when I had a dim screen with no back light.
Your TV hopefully supportsw more then one unit connecting to it. if not you will need to use an input on one of your units (direct tv unit or DVD player) for the other unit. Example your direct tv is connected to your TV, on the back of your direct tv unit is a video /audio input. connect your dvd player to that input. on your direct tv remote or menu should be an option to use that input.
In 480p resolution, you highlight the 16.9 aspect ratio from the TV Aspect menu option in Setup and then type 1397139 on the remote. This brings up the service screen with all options and machine information.
Optimal (best) settings are as follows.
1 : f 2 2 : 35 (this is DivX)
3 : 93 (macrovision?) 4 : f f (Vcd/Svcd)
5 : f f (region free) 6 : c0 (c0 = LG logo)(ce = Insignia)
7 : 04 8 : 15
All I can say is Keep these and and dont mess around or you can kill it....
I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or
s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the
front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it
asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video
Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to
the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select
Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input
you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video
(yellow composite cable).
