Re: No picture

How is the player plugged into the TV set? Are you using the S-video or RCA type plugs? Have you tryed a differant input on a differant TV? It could also be your cables. If you tryed differant cables and a differant input then your problem is a broken connection on the video jack or in the video output processor IC inside the unit and thats not a user fixable problem, Sorry. Good luck

Panasonic DVD-S31 won't play sound

Did you change the audio cable, "just to rule out" If it won't work on the Tv or stereo, there probably is a audio processor problem, or a issue with the laser pickup assembly, to repair this kind of problem would not justify the cost.

When I play DVD's my tv screen gets a rectangle box on it, the VHS is fine, it's just the DVD player.

Yes! you are right, this almost sounds like a captions problem, check the DVD/VCR Combo menu, if it has captions turn it off using your remote.

No matter what DVD I load in the player, it won't play the DVD. It says "Cannot play this disk". What's the problem?

The first thing to try is to clean the laser itself by using a cleaning disc. If that fails then most likely the pickup laser is no longer any good. This is usually obvious if you place an audio CD in the unit and it plays fine : )

How do i play british dvds on my american iliuv i1166 dvd player?


I've seen no problem about it. None at all in fact. Almost all DVD players have almost the same features no matter what DVD will you play in it - be it British, Indian, Filipino, or Chinese. So, try to play your DVD, I'm sure it will work.

Your problem is solved. Thanks...

Dmr-ES30V Dvd plays pre record movies fine but I

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

Lost sound on DVD

I have a CH-DVD 300--not sure how different it is from the 200, but I have the same problem. Putting in an audio CD seems to do the trick, and is less hassle than unplugging (which also works for me).
