DVD player won't play

Setup all cables correctly, TV works very well. But it won't play any DVDs. Had a new one, just out of the box, and all DVD play is distorted. Any ideas?

    We just purchased this t.v. and the dvd has only worked a few times. It does not matter if you put dvd in before pushing imput and going to dvd or after.I would like a proscan phone #. Sears would charge to take it back and they say they aren't going to care them anymore.

    We just bought one from circuit city. On day 2 we tried to play a dvd, inserted the disc and no reponse. On top of that, the dvd will not eject. The screan just says no signal. However, the tv portion work fine. Of course circuit city says no returns and gives a phone number to call. So far no response after a week!

    Started having problems the day I brought it home. Couldn't even insert a DVD because it was as if something was already in there. Contacted GE Warranty Co. which I purchased through Circuit City and the repair service has had my TV for almost 2 weeks now. He said a new DVD player would have to be ordered if he could find it. Still waiting....

    Purchased the tv, got home, set it up and DVD player did not work. Could not return to Circuit City because they are liquidating and not accepting returns.

Advice to be sure label faces away from front (shiny side toward front) is correct. Also, before inserting DVD push the INPUT button on the control until "DVD" shows. To return to TV you will have to use the INPUT button again to re-set.

Make sure you have inserted the correctly; the label faces away from the TV/DVD player.

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized


Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

Dvd will not play on tv


If the cables have been installed correctly with matching color codes and your TV has been set for DVD player input, you should see something. Try swapping players to find out whether the old one works. If so, there may be something wrong with your new player.

My player seems not able to upscale the signal from my antennea and DVDs


Upscaling will only occur when playing DVDs. You have to use an HDMI connection from the DVD player to the tv. For upscaling of DVD's you will also have to setup the upscaling resolution in the DVD player's setup menu. Be sure to set the resolution to one that your tv will support.

If your tv does not have a HDMI input, then you will not be able to use the upscaling feature.

Upscaling will not occur on antenna signals. This is not possible because the hardware (inside DVD player) is only meant to upscale DVD video.

Again, to upscale DVDs ONLY, you will have to have an HDMI cable going from DVD player to TV, set up your upscaling options on your DVD setup menu and have a TV that has a HDMI input and is capable of recieving the upscaled resolution you have set your DVD player to.

If you have any further question regarding this, let me know!

Sony rdr vx410 dvd player playing some dvds in black and white


  • DVD's are standard definition video sources. Number of lines output is 576 lines, whereas your HD TV set has 720 or 1080 lines. This difference may result in a poorer image. However some DVD players are able to “upscale” picture to obtain a very good picture. Check if your DVD player has the following connectors: YUV, DVI or HDMI. For more information, refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • Some HDMI or DVI featured DVD players also have an internal processor that can upscale pictures from a DVD to 720 or 1080 lines to provide an excellent picture from a standard definition disc to your HD TV set. Those settings are available from the setup menu of your DVD player. Please refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • If your DVD player does not have those connectors and only has a SCART connector, or S-VIDEO, or composite, there is not much to do to improve the picture quality. Just make sure that you are not using the cheapest cables and that the picture settings of your TV set are correctly adjusted.

  • Some high end TV sets have a picture improvement engine that can soften a noisy image. Make sure that it is activated from the setup menu of your TV set. Please refer to the instruction manual of your TV set.

  • If people and objects have weird white outlines around them. This may suggest that your TV sharpness is set too high. Make the correct sharpness adjustments from the setup menu of your TV set.

  • Make sure you use good quality cables and that your cables are not too long (less than 5 meters long).

Hookup wrong? I can't get the menu to come up for the VR375


New HD tv. Have digital cable box connected to tv., cable box connected to DVD recorder, but can't get setup menu to come up on tv screen. I had a similar problem. I have a HD tv connected to a digital cable box. I hooked up the DVD recorder with the wires it came with, but it would not play or give me the menu. However it was correctly hooked up. So the next day I connected a HDMI wire from the DVD recorder to the tv and everything works now.

Suddenly cannot record DVD after years


Hi,

Apologies for the delay in response. Your concern was just brought to my attention.

To your recording, based on your second posting (and would appreciate corrective information where applicable), your system is:
  • Cable provider > Cable Decoder Box > Panasonic DMR-E75V > TV (equipment setup)
  • single coaxial cable > yellow, red & white > yellow, red & white (wiring setup).
With your indulgence, a couple clarifying questions:
  • to watch the Panasonic when you play DVDs, to what channel or source or setting must the TV be set to?
  • to record a TV program/channel, to what channel or source or setting must the Panasonic be set to?
  • what is the brand and model of your Cable Decoder Box?
Initially, pls try:
  • play any known good DVD disc/movie. power on the TV and set to watch said movie;
  • without changing anything on the TV, STOP the playing of the DVD;
  • try changing channel on your Cable Decoder Box's remote;
  • pls post back result(s); or
  • do the above steps again but before changing the channels on the decoder box's remote;
  • try changing/cycling through the different input/source of the Panasonic DVD;
  • again post back result(s).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Will not play HD DVDs. & will not record


First off this is not an HD dvd player it is a dvd player that has HD upconversion. secondly if you want to record a cable show you will need to push that into the dvd recorder with the a/v input.
