    Are you using HDMI, component out or SCART? Have you checked all the connections (obvious, but it's easy to miss sometimes!).

I'm guessing you have the player connected via HDMI.
You first need to connect via SCART and then through the menus, set output to HDMI.

I have had my sumvision dvd player now for a few months and it keeps freezing periodically when watching a movie, sometimes its starts and then freezes, this is happening always now, even though I have...

The problem is the laser pickup assembly in the dvd, If it freezes the stepper motor which drives the worm gear along with the laser carriage is the problem, the precision in tracking is critical and any interference causes the picture to freeze. If you have any warranty on the unit I would encourage you to take it back for possible exchange, because it will get worse and finally become unusable.

I just purchased a Sony CD/DVD player, model #DVP-SR200P. I assume that I've hooked everything up correctly. I get sound and picture. But, the picture is in black & white. What am I doing wrong? Is...

Try to go under the settings in the dvd player. Be sure all the setting are set up according to your TV.

Sometimes if you dont have it set to N. American standards it can output like that. Be sure its set to "NTSC" if you live in N. America or Japan. If you live in Europe be sure its set to "PAL".

Let me know If this is not a issue in comments and I will help you further but I think this is it.

We have reconnected our DVD to our new flatscreen and can see the picture, hear the sound but the picture is only black and white

This sounds like either the colour settings on the DVD are wrong for your new TV, or the TV has got the wrong setting for the socket that the DVD is connected to.
Go to the menu of the DVD first and look for picture settings etc. Or colour, keep your eyes peeled for the words PAL or NTSC.

I have a sumvision/cyclone 1TB media player and up until last week was working perfectly. Now although i can see the films/files when connected to the computer, i can not see it when it is connected to my...

I had a similar problem with a different piece of kit, the answer is go to the options menu of your TV, there you will find the composite settings tweak those while the cyclone is plugged in and your picture will re appear.

It may be too late for you but i had just bought one of these units 1tb version, the problem i found was even though it reads .vob file ( kinda suggests DVD compatibility ) it really only means that, navigation only allows going to a DVD folder and then on to the individual .vob files.

If you know what I am talking about then you will realise it means no DVD title screen navigation! I can tell you I felt ripped off.

Another issue is that many files that played flawlessly on my old ioni media player either played with no picture but sound or sound and no picture, i have read somewhere that this machine is just a large hard drive with a media player attached and not the reverse.

Lastly I wouldn’t advise anyone to buy one because you may think well maybe there will be a firmware update to fix the problems, I downloaded the firmware zip from the maplins site and checked the properties, its was created two years ago, they have done nothing since.

Going to the sumvision website gives you no way of complaining just a link at the bottom of the page to some Chinese website.

Did I mention that although the unit ticks all the boxes for looks but the remote is very cheap and nasty as the GUI in the box.

I got a refund!


I am looking at this to replace it

any thoughts?

Samsung dvd player S224 pictures on screen are in red tones only

how is video on the dvd player hooked up? via s-video, component cables ( r,g,b), or the yellow cable? if it is the yellow cable then i beleive to be something wrong with the unit but just make sure you are plugging into the yellow input on tv. if it is the other types make sure you dont have the rgb cables mixed up. it is very easy to mix up the 3 wires. if it is the s-video cable try a different one if you can and make sure all pins are intact when you remove them. i hope this helps and good luck

DVD picture is black and white

Sounds like you are either trying to play an NTSC (US or Asian) DVD on a PAL (European) TV.

Go into the DVD settings and look for picture, video or display options.

If the DVD is set to NTSC, then set to PAL.
