How is it powered? A small current power source can cause a problem
What is the HDMI source?
What is the HDMI resolution. According to some Amazon reviews it only works if the input is 480i.
Does it output audio?
The Amazon reviews list a lot of problems with the device.

Doesn't work? Send it back. Don't replace it with the same unit. Apparently a lot of people have had issues with that particular model.

I'll be watching to see if someone comes up with a circuit that converts HDMI to Composite.

Bob asked about sound. How are you getting sound? ARE you getting sound? Are you using an outside audio system like a sound bar or external speakers? Are you using fiber optics for sound?

Suggest you return that device and look for one on Amazon with good reviews.
Those will likely cost more than the cheap ones.
