Try a different channel on your TV Some times it may be AV1 or AV2 on the TV that you have to connect to. The DVD should also show a "start up" screen on the TV to show you that it has connected properly.
There are generally 2 ways to connect a dvd player to a tv.1 If you have 3 rca connectors on the back of your tv (they are color coded yellow for video and white and red for audio left and right channels respectively) and the same connectors on the back or side of the dvd player.Use rca cables to connect the dvd player to the tv,connecting yellow to yellow white to white and red to red.Using the remote put your tv on video.Put the channel selector on the dvd/vcr player on video or L1 or E1 (depending on what brand dvd/vcr you have).2 connect a rf (coaxial cable from the rf output of the dvd/vcr and connect this directly to the rf (antenna) input to your tv.Put the tv on channel 3.Play the dvd/vcr to see if you have the video.If not put the tv on channel 4.Some dvd/vcr's put their signals out on channel 3 and others on channel 4.Good luck.
For this model, I *think* that you need to use the component connections/input in order to view the DVDs. If VCR shows ok when using the cable, but not the DVD (and it seems to work since it goes up as if playing), try to connect the component (blue/green/red connectors) and it should work.
Don't forget to switch input on your TV to component.
P.S. If you have HDMI on both this dvd/vcr & your TV, it should work with that too.
Connect one end of the VIDEO (yellow) CABLE to the AV1 in VIDEO jack on the back of the TV. Then connect one end the AUDIO (red and white) CABLES to the AV1 in AUDIO L and R(left and right) jacks on the rear of the TV. Connect the other end of the cables to the appropriate color on the DVD player (yellow to yellow etc.)
Press the CH + or – buttons on the remote to scroll the channels until AV1 appears in the upper left corner of the TV screen. Slide the TV/VCR/ACC switch to the VCR position. Insert DVD into player and press PLAY.
do you want to record programs on your vcr? connect the out to tv cable from your dir/tv box to antenna or cable in on the vcr, then connect the cable from out to tv on the vcr to antenna or cable in on the tv, you'll have to select channel 3 on the tv to get the vcr to show a picture and you will need to select channel 3 on your vcr to record the channel selected on your dir/tv box. confusing?thanks and good luck.
Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.
