Hi there and welcomeConnect the DVD to the TV via one of the HDMI port on the TV.Then on the TV remote press Source to switch between the TV source until you get to the source input you connected the DVD player on and you should then see it.Let me know how you go please.

After getting back home I tried all that you suggested. It still does not work. There is amessage that states there is a cable disconnection but I'll be darned if I know where is any cable connection to this DVD. there is only the HDMI connection and when I go to the device on the menu and click on it, nothing happens. I can hear the DVD trying to start and it will open and shut but will not play a disc.

Ok, so to be clear Anthony, when you try to play a DVD on the player, it does not play it? Not if you can watch the film, but it wont even play the disk?

ThanksOn the DVD, hold the channel up and down buttons for 6 seconds (so on the unit not the remote) and release which will start the reset.Then set it up again like when you first received it and tell me if at least then the DVD's start playing.
