parrottrack, The problem can only be either a software or a hardware issue. First try the software as its most likely the problem. Download a good known virus free burning software; Express Burn has a good trial copy. If you make a CD with the new software and it works, it was the software, if it you have the same results then its a hardware issue. First try cleaning the players lens, if that does not work the player has failed.
first of all you need to check your manuel for dvd's that can be played as in burnt. as of right no cd/dvd changers can play dvd that are burnt. cd's can be played if it states on player. only normal cd's and dvd's can be played. also check your disc for marks on them like fingerprints etc. if you want invest in a great player like sony, pioneer, i have no problem with these players.
Hi, guessing you are from the UK? Different countries operate different regions for dvd's for instance the UK dvd players are set up to play region 2 discs, and US dvd players are set up to play region 1 discs. This is because dvd release dates are different around the world and this stops people buying a dvd in the US and bringing it back to the UK and selling it before its official UK release date for example. Your choices are either to play the dvds on a PC where often the dvd software will allow you to change region a number of times (be careful though as some players will let you change region say 5 times and then be locked to that region) Or to get hold of or buy a multi region dvd player which plkays dvd'd regardless of their original region Hope that makes sense, good luck
My first solution would be to clean the glass laser eye with cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. If the player is self-fixable, that always works. If the cleaning does not work, than that means the eye motor or timing is off. If it is off, than it is due to a burnt out capacitor on the system board. THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM IN ALL PLAYERS. They will all eventually do this sometime in it's lifetime. If the cleaning does not work, than it is time to replace it or have it repaired by a qualified electronics repair technician. They will have to test the motor and all capacitor and components to determine the cause of the error
For me the problem was with a Philips DVD player. I Googled the make, model and "wrong region code" and got some solutions. Try this approach. Some websites offer to sell you a solution; hopefully, you should be able to avoid this!
I have a DVD player, a VCR player, a TV set all hook into an RCA RT2250 Audio/Video receiver. Everything was working fine until 2 days ago. Now the DVD player gives me a great pix but no sound. The VCR,and TV are just fine and I have checked everything out, speaker connections, mute buttons, etc. and nothing seems to be wrong. I am thinking that some thing in the receiver got fried. Is it repairable?
I am just throwing these out there as food for thought.
Make sure you ended the recording on that other side. If a DVD is left open(meaning more could be written to it) other dvd players have a hard time reading the info. Put in one of the 2 sided disc's that worked. how does the camera recognize the disc? Then insert the troubled disc and see if the disc info is being read the same. i.e. disk size, manufactuer, open/closed?
Check for a firmware upgrade for your DVD burner/player(s).
Let me know how things work out.
