Okay, I have a few ideas, but I'll need a little more information before I can tell you what's going on.

First, I'll need to know the model number of the DVD player. And I'll need to know if it has worked in the past, or if it has never worked.

Second, I'll need to know the brand and model number of the TV.

With that info, I should be able to come up with something.
