Movies will start...then stop

Had a question yesterday about dual layering. Now, it won't play anything. The discs that were playing yesterday will now only play for a minute and then they stop and eject. Or they will start(I'll get a PLAY on the screen) and then the screen turns black and nothing happens. Could use any help or advice thanks

    DVD player came out of box failing to play 50% ot he DVD I tried and most of the time stops playing in the middle of the DVD If the unit had a lot of run time cleaning would be considered but being a new unit I feel a Mechanical or Electrinic adjustment is needed. How and where are these adjustments made. I feel it is an electronic adjustment issue because it plays the older DVD's better as if they may have more magnetics, if that makes sense.

    I have taken the unit from the roof but didn't wont to take it apart until I have some direction.

Dori,

Get a DVD Laser Lens cleaner kit with a disc and fluid. Run the kits per instructions, This may help. If it doesnt your laser may need a mechanical or Electronic adjustment.

Play original movies only, no play copies and no burned copies

some of the newer dvd's are made double layer and recently they've been working on triple layer dvd's. basically a single layer dvd holds 5gb of information, a dual can hold 10gb and a triple can hold 15gb (those are approximates). by making it more layers, they can put the fullscreen and the widescreen edition on the same movie disc. some of the 'lower end' dvd players don't have the capabilities to play these dual or triple layer discs.

Hello, I have an LG DR275 which plays all discs except for dual layer types which it is having trouble reading or just simply won't play them at all, is there a firmware upgrade for this player for this...


According to the operation manual for this model, DL (dual-layer) discs are not mentioned, so your unit may not be able to record or play that type of disc.
~
Of course, if you are using BLANK dual layer discs which have not been recorded or formatted on any other device, and the LG isn't recognizing them, then the disc type is probably not compatible with your model. It's likely to be a design limitation specific to this model; not necessarily a fault.

Hi, I bought Bose 3 2 1 SERIES 11 Home system. but i cannot play wedding dvds on my system. All hollywood movies plays ok. I tried Verbatim DVD R & DVD-R there is no picture but the sound is there....


I would say that as with many manufacturers, the Bose 3-2-1 is meant to play Dual Layer DVDs. Since they hold data on 2 separate layers of the disc, these hold twice the amount of data than the Dvd+r or -r that you're using. When the Bose system tries to read the 2 layers and only finds one it, will not recognize the dvd. If you don't have a Dual-Layer burner and Dual Layer discs to burn to, you should upgrade your burning equipment. They're not that expensive these days. Cheers!

My samsung blue ray dvd player does not play half of the blue ray movies I bring home


is the model compatible with dual-layer blue ray discs? check the specifications you got with the player if it is not then your problem may be that some of the discs you are playing are dual-layer and the player cant handle it

DVD BURNING


yes there is, there is plenty of software that will actually make any size move fit on a regular 4.7gb dvd, my definate favorite is CloneDvd2, also nero will, hope this helps and anything else i can help you with i am happy to help, also the most likely reason your dvd wont play the dual layer disc is that it doesn't support dual layer.

Dual layer disc problem


Did you glance in the manual to see what types of DVD it would play (typ. DVD-9, DVD-4, etc.) and try it?  This site can't prevent you reading appropriate manuals, you know.
