Hi, I believe I know the problem having attempted to fix no less that a few dozen dvd players with similar problems. I would first try to clean the laser head with a dvd lens cleaner ( the kind with auto play and the little brushes actually on the disc.) Occasionally there may be foreign material partially obstructing the path of the laser beam causing playback for audio but not all dvd's-If that does not work I would say the dvd system has reached near the end of its life cycle ( this can be as little as a yr depending on how many total hours played and the manufacturer.) it can be the laser has gotten a little weak but more often than not the video digital to analogue has over heated just one to many times and is now on the fritz. I have never successfully repaired a dvd player that played music but not movies ( they're too cheap to buy these days to put so much effort into unfortunately-although as I said dirt can't be ruled out-I really had a game console that somehow had a dusty lens.) I hope this was of some use, thank you for choosing FixYa, write back to let us know if this helped or if we can be of further assistance,good luck-Prodzilla
Hi there, the problem with this type of dvd player is that the remote has a pause/play combined button. You need to get yourself a generic remote and program it to use the dvd player, make sure it has a seperate play/pause button. When you have this remote use the following code :
Audio, 1, 9, 8, 2, Subtitle, Pause and then 0
Make sure you have the disc tray open at the time. The screen should display "On" if the code worked correctly.
The only way if to get an 8mm player from any friend or from any photography studios that does conversion of old tapes. These recordings can be converted only if they can play well and hopefully without deterioration due to magnettic fields and fungus. Check out on old stores or maybe some electronic freaks who would be glad to share and ,make a transfer. Use can use a good handy cam to record using the the composite signals of video and audio which can be transferred to DVD. Hope you are lucky to find one! Good day.
makesure there is no disc in the player. go into menu leave libary ilighted keep a eye on the top right hand corner type the code 57538 and in the top right hand corner u will see the code it is set to 1-2 region change the code to a 9 for multiregion open and shut the disc tray then go back into menu same again type in the same code if the number 9 is in the top right hand corner then it is know multiregion just leave don,t touch any keys after a few secounds it will be set. enjoy
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
Hi I had the same problem. Someone gave me this vcr because they said it didn't work w/o the remote and then the remote stopped working when I got it. I got an old universal remote I had and looked up the code for the Go Video online (you can usually just type in the brand of your remote and they usually have a pdf you can open). Then when I entered the code I was able to go and unlock it. Hope this works!!!
