The red "stand by" light shows power is getting to the TV. If it is off, you may have no house power being connected. If you can get the red light to come on but your TV still does not turn on the power supply may have failed

Did you finalize the DVD before you removed it from the VCR/DVD recorder? Until a disc is finalized, it won't work on another device. If you left some space, try to finalize it now. Does the disc play when in that Sylvania unit? It is possible that the unit is faulty and didn't focus the laser properly for writing to the DVD. (If you actually tried to burn to a CD and not a DVD-R, then no data was written to the disc. There are slight differences to the laser settings for CDs and DVDs.)

I hope this helps.

No hack for this player! Best idea is burn region free copies with Anydvd (by Slysoft)and dvd shrink (both free but Anydvd will ask for a fee eventually)
Anydvd strips out all the regions

this DVD can support multiple regions. What you need to watch out are the format it supports. It can support DVD, DVD+R/RW, CD, CD-RW, MP3 and JPEG. That's basically it.

You could try purchasing a universal remote. Many of them can access even the most specific functions, although it might be labeled differently on the remote (so if you don't see it on the remote, just play around and it might really be there. I've had my input control for a TV actually turn out to be the TV/VCR button on my universal remote). Make sure it's a universal remote with DVD controls, otherwise it might not have that function at all.

Other than that, there's nothing else I can think of, since most DVD players don't have any menu button(s) on the unit itself.

It's the fuse in the electric engine. You can bypass this fuse by cutting it off and then you just connect the two ends together, wrap with electrical tape. It'll work, that's what I did to mine. Works great again

Your TV cannot resolve the Mac picture size. Unplug your Mac from the external display, set the correct resolution for the Mac and purchase an adapter to reduce the resolution from your Mac to run the TV.

see the procedure and fix it.God bless you
    • 1 Purchase or borrow an imported DVD. The only real reason to make your DVD player region-free is if you plan on watching imported DVDs.
    • 2 Locate your DVD player's brand name and model number. These can usually be found on the box the DVD player came in, or on a sticker close to the video inputs or on the bottom of the DVD player.
    • 3 Have your remote handy. You will need your remote to enter the input codes into your DVD player.
    • 4 Locate a Web site that can help you with the codes you need for your particular DVD player, since all DVD players have different codes. Try DVD Exploder or Video Help (see Resources below). Both have an extensive list of codes for almost every kind of DVD player manufactured.
    • 5 Enter your brand name and model number when prompted to do so on the Web site. If your particular model number is not available, try searching under the brand name. Sometimes you will be able to find a model number that is close to your DVD player's model number.
    • 6 Enter the codes into your DVD player with your remote. Be sure the DVD player's door is open-almost all codes require the door to be open.
    • 7 Test your imported DVD to see if it works, once you have entered your code into the DVD player.
