Obvious question, but:

Do you have a signal going to it? (Is it hooked up to a DVD or other video player?)

i have the audio plugged into the h/u... and there are four wires that come out of the screen 1 power, 1 gound, and 2 female video rcas which are yellow , and 1 female rca that is colored red but the part the the male end goes into is yellow. i tried the video in all three and nothing.

i would check the manual or website to see what that power light is supposed to be doing when you hit power. i know on a lot of stand alone screens red= standby and when it turns on the light goes green. unfortunately i havent dealt w/ your screen b4 so i dont know

have you checked the website? i am just curious as to if the unit is really turning on or not. no when you hit the power button does the screen apear to turn on at all i.e. get little brighter even though its still black or does it not change at all?
