What to do if the DVD movie cannot be displayed on the TV after inserting a DVD Disc into the DVD-ROM or DVD-RW?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

After inserting a DVD disc into the DVD ROM or DVD RW drive, the keyboard shortcut to switch between the LCD screen and TV display does not work.
The keyboard shortcut to switch over between the LCD screen and TV display varies from computer to computer. It may be Fn + F7 or Fn + F8.

Due to the design after inserting a DVD disc, the keyboard shortcut cannot work to switch between windows. This is not a hardware issue.

This behavior is also mentioned in the VAIO Manual.
