Playing dvd's we had a power failure for 3 hours, since then no "new" (homemade) dvd will play..... except ones that we have already watched before the power outage. New [store bought] dvd's will play though.

Could be a ratings problem. Perform a reset by holding down your channel up and channel down buttons on the unit itself simultaneously until it shuts off. Wait a few seconds and turn it back on. Give it a try. Good Luck - Tamara

I cant watch movie from youtube


If you can watch a video no matter how slow it plays then the issue aint with the plugins or the browser, The possible cause is the internet connection speed, if videos play for sometime and shows buffering then your internet connection speed is either slow or used up by other internet related applications that use the available bandwidth if you are running them simultaneously.

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
ENHANCED FEATURES
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.

Pixilation when playback of dubbed and homemade DVDs


As mentioned on the Jan12 e-mailed Panasonic - surprise, no response! However on Panasonic's web site drill down to firmware upgrades for DVD machines. There is an upgrade available for the E50P. Straight forward fix, download to computer, expand it and copy to a CD-R. Put CD-R into E50 and recorder will check and update firmware. I did this on the 13th and have recorded two commercial free movies and both have played back perfectly after finalization. Time will tell. Hope this helps. Golferdon

Discs I have recorded I get the disc can neither be played nor recorder, and it erases what I have already and already watched.


I have the same unit. Similar problem but mine does not erase the disc. It says disc error on almost all dvd that are store bought and kicks them out. Will play almost all of the ones I recorded on it and finalized. I must let a disc in it at all times or door will not open. Lots of bad stuff on the net about this unit. It is a lemon! Mine is out of warranty and sony wants $175 to fix. Saw some blogs where it was serviced 3 times and still not right. Buy a new one before investing in the unit you have as there are many gremlins in it! Sorry I cannot offer specific help but this is where I am at!!
