Try a different DVD. Try a different program to play the DVD's. Go into the DVD program's help and see what it says about screen resolution.

Laptop screen resolution problem and solution


Laptop Screen Resolution Problems and solution
By hamack4real, fixya Contributor I want to do this! What's This? jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

Laptop screen resolution problems can vary for a variety of reasons. The most common types of problems generally involve some sort of hardware or software issue that causes the display to not work correctly. Correcting a laptop screen resolution problem can be done by making changes to hardware or software settings used by the computer.

    Symptoms
  1. There can be many symptoms to a display problem. Symptoms can include a screen that appears dim or one that is totally black. Other symptoms include odd colors or blotches that appear on the display as well as oversized icons on the desktop. Symptoms can also include icons that are the wrong size on the desktop.
  2. Causes
  3. There can be many causes that can result in different issues affecting the display. Common causes include damage or loose parts. Damage can result when the laptop is dropped or has something fall on top if it. Hinges that are loose are going to cause a problem because the display will not stay in an upright position. Other causes include a bad video driver or an improperly set resolution.
  4. Diagnose
  5. A screen resolution problem will need to be diagnosed to determine what actions to take to resolve the problem. Check the laptop for any loose or broken parts that might need to be repaired. Once that is done, run a test of the video display. Use the video display troubleshooter for Windows XP systems, the help and how-to for Windows Vista systems and the troubleshooting guide for Apple computers.
  6. Solutions
  7. Changing the resolution of the display can be done to fix some types of screen resolution problems. Changing the resolution can fix display problems with some programs as well as websites that have embedded video. Refer to the laptop manual for instructions to access the display settings to change the resolution setting. Updating the video driver might also help to resolve some known issues by the vendor.
  8. Brightness
  9. A dim screen can be corrected by adjusting the brightness of the display. Adjusting the brightness can be done on the keyboard as well as from the display properties. Press the FN key on the keyboard and use the right arrow key to increase the brightness of the display. The brightness settings can also be found as an option in the display settings. Keep in mind a laptop will dim the screen to conserve battery

Do I need a remote control to control the Philips magnavox model DVD 815AT. It plays the commercials on the video disc. When it comes to playing the movie, it keeps repeating itself and it won't go...


Usually most DVD's play movie trailers and sometimes advertisement before the movie will play. Once the ads or trailers are done it should go to the menu screen and at that point "play" or something like that should be underlined. If it is you can press play or select on the DVD player then the movie should start : )

DVDs do not play on LCD monitor


If you see the dvd on the laptop and not the monitor:
Your problem is probably with your video card and its settings and not the monitor.
Some video cards wont support dvd playback on two screens at once.
What you have to try is to enable only the external monitor and disable the laptop lcd.
This can be done using shortcut keys on the laptop (usually this involves using the Fn key and one of the F# keys at the same time- the F# key may have a picture of two screens on it or be labeled CRT-LCD)
You can also change the settings in the display properties settings.

Sometimes the display settings as far as resolution are set too high for some dvd players. Lowering the resolution can take care of that problem.

Mine wont play anything a DVD it recorded it wont let me finalize


Today with HD High Definition TV these kind of problems appears because the new dvd players have more video resolution options, so, for playing all variety of dvd, and home done dvs,s (like family movies on dvd) you need set up your resolution video on your DVD player at 480i or 480p option, not higher because some DVD movies (mainly oldies) have lower resolution than newer , for example new movies on HD format have 1080 P resolution, and if you have this option chosen in your DVD player you only can see this kind of videos, on the other hand if you have chosen 480i or 480 p on your dvd player , you can play all dvd formats including home movies made with any movie software, in this way you can play dvd-r and +r movies and of cours you can play HD movies also. So put some dvd where your dvd player works well (you need see the dvd menu in the tv screen), then press stop. Then press setup in your remote control, go to video resolution and choose 480 I or 480p, then press ok AND ENJOY THE MOVIE.
