Barbara, your dvd player needs to be either on channel 3 or 4. If you have a local channel 3 or 4 switch it to the one that is not local. Or it could be a video 1,2 or 3. Just keep using the remote in that format and you will find the signal.
This is quite common of older players. Some only work with DVD+R discs and others with DVD-R discs.
Some player also does not read recordable discs (an early form to try prevent piracy)
Also make sure if recorded on your Recorder, that the disc is finalized before you try to play it on an older player. (See your menu / manual on the recorder for the procedure)
Have you checked your game player for any dust. I mean, it could be
because the lens of your game player is dusty and it is not able to
read discs. That is the most obvious reason. Plus you need to check the
discs on some other player or perhaps on your PC. Try to make sure that
the discs are running on some other gadget or on your friend's PC or
play station. I
hope you try to resolve problem with my tip.
Try to clean optical lens of dvd player with soft and nice quality cotton bud / swab by opening top cover of player. There might be chance of lens sled mechanism stuck so move lens left-right for 2-3 times. If cleaning doesn't work, you need to replaced optical lens.
Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.
