HelloUnplug the power cord for one minute, then plug the cord back in . This allows the unit to reset itself.Check the breaker box to make sure that the switch that controls the TV is not switched to "Off." If it is, flip the switch back to the "On" position.Check the batteries in the remote control if attempting to turn on the TV from the remote. Make sure that the batteries are properly aligned. Try replacing the batteries.Grab your Emerson TV's remote and hit the "Input" button at the top multiple times. This will cycle through the available video inputs for the Emerson TV. You may have had the wrong input selected accidentally, such as the one for the DVD player. This will reselect the correct video input for you to enjoy television programming via your cable or satellite receiver.If, however, your Emerson TV still lacks audio or video, peruse your A/V cable prong-to-port connections and ensure they are correctly made. The A/V cable has one red, one yellow and one white prong on each of its ends, for a total of two of each color. Appropriately, there are red, white and yellow prongs on the back of your Emerson TV and the back of your cable or satellite box. Make sure the ports and prongs are matched up by color and have not been switched up.
