Question about Panasonic DMR-ES40VS DVD Recorder/VCR
Sept. 13, 2008 -- Recently (for the past several weeks) I have been unable to play commercially produced DVDs that, previously, I HAVE been able to play. I get this message displayed on my TV screen: "The disc cannot be played in your region." I understand that my unit is (factory) set to "Region1" that supposedly allows me to play DVDs with Region "1" or "ALL" encoding. I AM able to play DVDs that the unit has recorded.
I have had this unit for 3 to 4 years(?).
I have not knowingly changed the "Region" setting of my unit (if that is even possible). I have not yet tried unplugging the unit for 30 minutes, nor have I tried a Lens Cleaner. Any and all insights/thoughts/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Dear FixYa Team,
Thanks for your inquiry re my problem.
Since I posted, I THINK I may have solved my problem. I unplugged the unit for an hour or so, plugged it in again, and it DID play a "commercial" DVD that I had tried earlier. I don't know if this is a permanent solution -- we'll see. If not, I'll take the next step in seeking some help.
