SOURCE: Black Bars on all blu ray movies

Hi icmjrtdr,

Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.

You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.

Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.

Hope this helps,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: My DVD player stays stuck on loading. How can I

If all DVD's you try act the same, I would clean the read head. If that doesn't work, then drive needs to be serviced. Hopefully nobody smked cigarettes near the unit as that coats the optics. Clean the read head VERY carefully with a Q tip and 99% isoprophyl alcohol. Ensure that no fibers get stuck around the read head... it is VERY fragile.

If only one disk won't finish loading, then the disk itself is probably bad and the drive is OK.

When inshirting movies dvd in dvd player showing message on dvd players screen no disc and cant play movies dvd why?

it could be the disc itself dvds really don't age that well a common problem is that one day they just decide to freeze and stop working even though they had only been played a few times the most extreme would be your situation. I would suggest trying newer dvds out if same problem occurs then it is a problem with the dvd player.

Purchased the pink Disney Princess DVD player from KMart. When you turn it on and insert a DVD to play, screen comes up saying the Parental Controls have been set (Universal Studios picture in upper left...

lots of electrical items will use a default security code of 0000 or 1234.
if there is nothing in the manual and these codes do not work, then your best option would be to return it to the store for them to find the codes or refund/refpace the item

I have an Accurian DVD player and everytime we play a movie the screen goes black off and on. You can hear the sound but can see no picture. Is it toast?

Check it with other dvd disks,might have damage disk like smushes,scratches,cracks in the dvd disk?Might also could be the tv,nothing to do with the DVD player.

Craig portable dvd player CTFT701

My screen would flicker when you tilted it back and forth. Sometimes it would cut out and moving it would make it come back on. I took the battery off and opened the screen from the front(2 screws in hinge & 2 screws under rubber plugs). There is a ribbon plug inside. Mine looked kinked in one spot so I just repositioned it so the kink was in another spot. Everything worked fine after that. Hope this helps.

On most of the set top DVD players you use the monitor button or the remote control menu button to access the mode that flips the display (invert). The mode is for those who mount the units to the ceiling of a vehicle for rear passengers to view. You might have to have a DVD playing at the time or just loaded in the stop mode to access the feature.
