Thanks for the info.
Does recorder operate through buttons on it and does any message appear on recorder front display when try to operate through its remote control?

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Please unplug Scart cable from DVD recorder, leave the HDMI cable connected between TV and DVD recorder, turn On TV and DVD recorder, push Input button on TV remote and select HDMI input in TV which is connected to recorder (for example, HDMI-1 or HDMI-2 etc) and check, does recorder logo screen appear on TV?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Have done as suggested. Logo did not appear, but it is now working perfectly. Many thanks for your time and help, Trevor Jackson.

Logo did not appear, but for some reason it is now working perfectly. Thank you very much for your time and help. Trevor Jackson.
Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Excellent Trevor Jackson, glad to know that it is working now, it seems that TV wasn't set on proper input to get recorder video output signal. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
