This is often a problem with the DVD player software thinking it is in a region different than your discs. (DVD discs are often encoded with 'region codes' meaning a disc purchased in Asia will not work in a player expecting to see North American discs)

What can happen is the player 'forgets' where it is, and your regioned discs won't play any longer (region free discs should continue to work as will audio CDs ....)

A power surge, random cosmic ray or similar flakiness can cause a player to 'forget' what region it was designed for ....

If that is what has happened you need to 'reset' the region code.

Altho I can diagnose this, I have NO CLUE as to how to do this with a Protron PD-800 DVD player. Anyone out there know how to reset the region codes for this (or generically for a DVD player?)

Thanks!! //cheapz

    'setup' on this remote does NOT get you to a service menu .... is there something I'm missing? Yes, there is no disc in the machine, and the only buttons marked + and - are the volume controls, and they do nothing in the setup menus ....

Yes you can take out disk, then click setup on remote, then hit + and - over and over until you see the code pop up on the screen. Arrow over to change code. I have the same problem but don't know which code to put it on. 255 is not working for me.

My dvd player keeps saying 'incorrect disk' why? and what can i do to stop it?


I don't understand your problem.
Is it the TV or is it the DVD? You say you tried other dvds and the problem is still there. Looks like the TV is the problem. Sometimes it's hard to help people when they only mention on screen issues. How can first DVD say 'incorrect disk' and then another dvd, and another still say 'incorrect disk'? It just doesn't seem to make sense. Is the contents on the disk a computer recorded movie, film or home movie? If so, you have to record the film on the disk with a format that accept the DVD. Could the DVD be a Blu-Ray, can it play a number of video formats, DVD, DivX, KviD DVD, etc.? Try first with a purchased movie DVD disc, if it doesn't work, then the DVD is faulty. DVD players these days are meant to play a wide range of video format, including CD discs. If you have an old DVD player, you may not play latest discs. But if the DVD is incorporated with the TV, then you have to insert a new movie and see if it plays. Go to an appliance or TV DVD store and talk to them. Or you can purchase a new movie and insert it in. If it doesn't work, you can always return it. As you said, you've tried different DVDs, sounds like it is a separate DVD player. If so, try other movie discs. I get the same warning only when I insert discs with movies I recorded on my computer, such as Pinnacle video editor.

My dvd player starts the movie over every time I turn the car on. Previous reviews said it would start back where it stopped. the manuel gives no information on this. Help!


Hi Arlene,

I checked Amazon for this player and looked at the questions and reviews. As luck would have it, I found this:

Q: dvd player: Does the Sylvania SDVD8791 dvd player remember where the movie stopped?

A: No, It's starts the movie over everytime the player is turned off.

So it appears that at least one other person is having the same experience as you are having. At first, I thought if you had it wired wrong it would "forget" but since it is portable and lacks batteries - that wouldn't be the case. For these same reasons, I can't imagine how a player can remember the location on a disk if power is removed from it. In any case, I doubt there is anything wrong with the player, it simply doesn't function as you were erroneously told or as hoped. When in the car, you should probably tell those watching to note the location on the disk before shutting off the car.

The Amazon link I used for my reply can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Sylvania-SDVD8791-7-Inch-Mobile-Portable/dp/B004QGXWS6

Good luck!

I have prepared a home movie on Windows Movie Maker and when I copied it to a DVD it would not play on a dvd player can anyone tell me what I did wrong please thanks joe


The reason why the DVD disk you created may not contain the file format the DVD player recognizes. On a normal DVD disk there are two folders - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders. The video files are located in the VIDEO_TS folder. This video folder contains the VTS_xxx.vob video files (the video files has a .vob extension).
The video file you created may have a avi or wmv or mov or mpg extension, whilst these video files can be played on a computer but they won't play on a DVD player.
Check the movie software you are using and make sure it creates the correct file format for a DVD player.

The DVD player keeps telling me no disc I have tried 3 other movies and there are no scratches on them. Is there something broke inside that is reading the Discs?


Hi, it seems like the DVD laser that reads the disks need to be cleaned, you will need to use a DVD disk cleaning kit, this is available at most stores.

Hope this helps
