Hooking up external DVD player

My set will now only play select DVD's (it seems to like the older titles), while new release DVD's will not play. I have explored the obvious solutions (disc and DVD player cleaners, making sure parental control is off, etc), and have decided to hook up an external DVD player. There are no instructions with the TV manual about hooking up external DVD players, but when I attach the 3-lead cable from the external DVD to the video/audio input on the back of the TV, nothing happens. Is there a need or a way to override the unit's own DVD player? Any suggestions? There is a dish network box hooked to this TV also, and I have tried routing the external DVD straight to the TV as well as through the Dish box. No luck so far. Thanks for any suggestions....

    I've placed all the connections in properly however, only my television setup and menu show up. The external DVD player used to work before, but my 5 year old got a hold of the remote control and now the TV and the external DVD are not recognizing each other.

You need to use the "input select" button on your remote to select either Line 1 or Line 2, which ever input Line your DVD player is plugged into. Many of newer DVDs are called "blue ray" DVDs, maybe those are th eones your TV doesn't recognize.

If you only have the one Audio/Video or AV input then pop into a TV store and buy a cheap AV switch. Plug your Dish Box into one set of inputs and your DVD into the other. Then run another lead from the switch box to the TVs AV inputs. That way all you do is match the switch to whatever it is you want to watch. If your TV does have two AV inputs just run each unit to a set of inputs and change the TV to AV1 or AV2 depending on which you want to watch and which unit is connected to which AV input. I hope you understood that :-) BMW

If you tryed to hook up into another video input you also have to switch the inputs on the remote in the input menu from input 1 or 2 to the same.

Absolutely you better bet it can, just hook up the cables to the front and select the input on your tv and you should be ok. For the internal DVD try running a cleaning disk you never know it could be just dirty.

Phillips BDP5100 not play BD (unknown disc) but DVD read and play no problem How can i do pls Help me ????


The player detects that the discs contains unauthorized copies of movie titles.

The disc is with a new format which is not yet supported by the player. Some newly released Blu-ray titles in the market apply new disc format which did not exist when the player was manufactured. This leads to playability problem with these discs. This is not a defect of the player and can possibly be solved by firmware upgrade.
The Philips technical team is constantly working on the firmware development to enable the player to play such discs. Installing the latest firmware in your player helps to ensure optimal playback performance. Please visit the support website of your player regularly to check out new firmware release.
Before you update, read the Firmware Upgrade Readme File on the Software and Drivers page. It contains information on playability resolution on discs of particular movie titles.


If the latest firmware is installed in the player and only one disc can't be played, there may be some problems with the disc. It may be defective/scratched.
Another possibility is that the lens of the player is dirty. Try cleaning the disc and the lens with a lens cleaning kit which is available at electronics stores

6. Press DVD Menu twice on the remote.

7. When the display reads s000 5858 use the up and down buttons to change the 000 to 02E.

8. Using the Left and Right arrow buttons, change the last four digits until they read 0000 for Region Free, 0101 for Region 1, 0202 for Region 2 or 0404 for Region 4.

I need to change the region from 1 to 4


You have to go to the device manager of the operating system. List the hardware. Right click on the actual dvd drive and select the area that you want to change the region to. It will display the region.

Try a different brand of blank DVD.
If that doesn't work any better, and your MacBook Pro is in fact "brand new," bring it to the Apple Store, because you have warranty redress.

Playing mp3 songs on the ps3 --- 80gb


Whether you are hooking up your device through a USB cable or removable memory (SD card/Flash drive) the PS3 should recognize and play the titles. Here are a few steps to help you along.

1. Hook up device to your PS3

2. Select PS3 media icon where files files should be located

3. Press triangle button on controller

4. Sub menu will show up on side of screen

5. Select the 'display all' option

6. Files should now be accessable/loadable/playable

Playing files directly from the Mp3 player or loading them on the hard drive are both do-able and both methods should work.

I have a dvd recorder/player Rca DRC8052N


you need the crack ! it seems that your players might have a onboard misfonction! it maybe coded for region 2,3 who knoes anyway try this its a workaround that usually works on lots of dvd players to unlock regions !

Press the title button on your remote, then hit 01. This will take you to the first title on the disc and bypass the region lock. To get to the main menu, do a chapter/title skip until you get to the end of the disc. This will take you to the main menu.
