Question about Emerson EWD7003 DVD Player
I own an Emerson DVD player hooked in (correctly) to a Symphonic 25-inch television with a built-in VCR. When I play VHS tapes...no problemo. However, whenever I play DVDs, the brightness fades from normal to much darker every 20 seconds, then back again. There are no other glitches. Sound...like ringing crystal. No scratches on the DVDs, nor finger prints. I was bombing around on another forum and they said color fade, if that's what this is, occurs when a DVD player is hooked up through a VCR. If that's the problem in this case, then it's quite a quandary, as the VCR is built into the TV. Also, I already tried a DVD cleaner-DVD and it didn't help, either. I used both the micro-scrubber cleaning function and the color-fade function. Nada! I'm a huge film buff. I need my DVD player. Please help!
Get a a/v converter and hook up to tv part

Hi Your problem is Copy protection on your DVD's! Without going into techno-bable, your DVD player detects that you are connected to a VCR, (You have no choice in your case as it is built-in), there are methods such as "Copyguard" and "Macrovision" that try to stop you from copying your favorite DVD onto VHS. The audio is left alone, but the video will go bright and dim, and the colors will be messed up, making the result un-watchable. You will find that the cheap DVD's you get for a couple of bucks at the discount store will play fine, as it would be too expensive to protect them. There are "little black boxes" available as "video stabilizers" that will cure this problem, (but you didn't hear that from me!),otherwise you must connect into a t.v. without a built-in VCR. P.S. Make sure the t.v. you switch to has RCA type A/V inputs on it, as you will have to purchase a separate RF modulator otherwise. Good Luck!

take it to any repair shop and have them llik it over. It probaly has something stuck in the cassette area. th repair may cost $20 to $50, most of that is what the public calls a "walk in the door fee." If your comfortable doing it yourself just take the lid off and remove whatever looks like it doesn't belong there, like pet hair or something a child could have stuck there, ie a toy or a pen. Hope this helps.
