I am having difficulties getting my DVD to work. I put the disc in press play and 1 appears in the DVD window but nothing comes on my TV screen. What am I doing wrong?
Likely what is happening is the TV is on the wrong input. If you can see the back of your TV and DVD player follow the cable out of the DVD player and see where it connects to the TV that should be labelled something like AV 1 or Component 2 or something like that.
Once you know that, or if you cannot get that information grab your TV remote, not the Shaw remote but the one that came with the TV. Look for a button marked Input or Source. Press that and you should get a list of the TVs inputs or it will change to the next input on the list.
Have the DVD player powered on and go thru each input, leaving it on for 10 seconds each, and see if the picture comes up! That should get you going.
Were you able to get your DVD working with shaw-jason's suggestions?
