Check Volume or Mute on the viewing device.
Clean the CD/DVD.
Use an Optics cleaner disc.
Remove and replace the connections to it including mains plug.

Still doesn't work, take it to a service centre.

SOURCE: Vcr picture is scrambled on our VCR/DVD combo unit.

If you have used the VCR a good bit, the drum may need cleaning. VCRs derived their synchronization from the recorded tape and if the heads are contaminated, the sync signal may not be getting through often enough to stabilize the tracking.
This is not a fun thing to do but I once serviced these and it can be done with care and cure the problem.
You will need cotton swabs and (preferably) some pure alcohol (not rubbing alcohol). Gaining access to the drum requires removal of the housing and perhaps, in a combination unit even more, keeping mind that both of the decks works with astoundingly small signals; relatively low voltage signals and an amazing precision in the mechanisms.
If you can gain access to the drum, do NOT ever touch the shiny surface of it with fingers since the oil on the skin can really screw things up.
You can rotate the drum with a finger on the top of the drum and hold your alcohol wetted swab gently against it while rotating the drum.
If the drum is the cause of the problem, you should see some dark deposits build on the swab. If fibers catch in the opening for the heads, you will have to rotate it in the other direction while holding a tissue gently against the drum; no fibers from anything should remain snagged on the drum, otherwise your efforts will be for nought.
Good luck-

DVD produces a great picture with sound - but the VCR is not producing a picture? is it snowy? or a black screen? if it is a black screen, the video output from the VCR is possibly faulty, this is not economical to repair. If it is just snow, and there is slight evidence of a playback picture from your tapes, try cleaning the video heads with a head cleaning cassette (available from eBay and electronics stores as a discontinued stock item).

Since Hi-Fi VCRs have the left and right stereo track on their head drums, and this drum becomes worn or dirty, the sound deteriorates along with the picture - mono sound usually with lots of snow.

This is a combo unit - it has a VCR/DVD common output section on the rear - allowing DVD and VCR pictures to be viewed when the respective drive is selected. When you checked your input connection, did you check the rear of the unit? you may have connected 'DVD priority out' instead of the VCR/DVD common out. If you did connect the common out, and still have no VCR picture, try the head cleaning suggestion as above. If that fails, consider replacing the unit as a last resort.

I am offering this suggestion 'gratis' - free of charge.

Select AV-1 or some thing in TV and plug DVD recorder Video-Audio output in AV-1 input of TV, playback any DVD and confirm its picture and sound in TV. Press Stop button of DVD recorder to stop playback.
Now plug Video-Audio output of VCR in DVD recorder input and select AV Input in DVD recorder, insert VHS tape in VCR and playback it and confirm you get VHS picture and sound in TV via DVD recorder.

Playback VHS tape in VCR, Insert blank DVD disc in DVD recorder and press Record while you see VHS tape picture in TV.
Hope this info will help you.

Your unit has it seems to have developed a video problem. it could be in the video switching IC or the video processor. Its going to need a trained technician, who knows how to use an ocilliscope to find the video problem.. Good Luck
