I have just bought a SONY DVD player, type DVP-SR760H to go with my 10 month old Toshiba type 33LL3C63DB TV

I cannot bring up the DVD menu or play DVDs in the TV which is linked via a HDMI cable

1. Unplug your TV from the wall socket and turn off the DVD player
2. Locate the Input panel on the rear of the TV and find the "Composite In" or "Video In" ports.
These are small, circular ports that are yellow, red or white. Locate the "Output" panel on the rear of the DVD player and the "Composite Out" or "Video Out" ports.

Turn on the power for the TV and the DVD player.
Press the "Input" or "TV/Video" button until the correct input for the DVD is select and the DVD player screen appears on the TV.
