Re: DVD PLAYER - plays 'red'

Had this problem when I start using it with "component" video cables on a new digital wide screen TV. I fixed it through the DVD player's setup menu, by changing the "video output" setting. On my Samsung player there are 3 options: S-video, 525i and 525p. It was set to S-video, and by changing it to any of the other two settings the problem was solved.

Re: DVD PLAYER - plays 'red'

Are the cable or off air channels ok?? If the channels or other sources of input are ok the theres a D to A converter problem or a demodulation problem in the player. these types of repairs on player only machines are usually cost prohibited.. Sorry Ellie.

BD-P1600 will play DVD-R with no problems up untill the last chapter of a movie then the picture freezes up and wont finish playing. is there a solution? Updated firmware about 3 weeks ago.

Either the Laser needs to be cleaned or it needs to be replaced. To clean, purchase a DVD player cleaner that uses fluid. roughly 20.00 run it a couple times and test. If it works, great. If it doesn't, replace the unit. It's cheaper than the repair. Hope this helps

Try to unplug the player for a few seconds and then plug it back. It should work again with the DivX files. I had an identical problem and since then, it works just fine.

DVDs on my Sony SLV-D350P DVD/VHS player play in black and white

First try a good quality dvd cleaner. If that does not cure the problem then the video cable may have went bad. I had a system that the cables were never touched & after a few years it needed replaced in order to get my picture back. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

New dvd movie will not play

I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.
