If the movie dosen't have close captioning the tv guardian will not work. For the tv guardian to work there has to be close captioning.

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized

Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

TV Guardian menu won't come up after hooking up DTV converter box

You may want to check the digital converter boxes and make sure they have analog pass through, it should be listed on the box or the instructions. My Magnavox and Zenith which were bought about a year ago, do not have analog pass through.

I just had the same problem and stumbled across this solution:
If this is a sanyo dvd player try this:
Enter the set-up menu (there cannot be a disc in the unit to access this menu, simply eject the disc, then enter set-up)
  1. For the password enter 788444 (even if there is only room for four digits enter all six)
  2. Press enter (the lock should open)
  3. Enter a new four digit code (this will lock it again)
  4. renter the new code to edit the settings

Subtitles on Sanyo DVD Player Model DMW-380

For the DVM-390 model, the above problem can be due to the TV Guardian (TVG) mode. I would go to the intial setting options and under Language turn the TVG mode to "Off" and see if that allows the subtitle languages to appear on screen.

I have the manual for the dwm-380 sanyo dvd with tvg.
Go to setup. Then Parental controls. Then scroll down to where you can enter a 4 digit code. To unlock and reset, enter 788444. I know this is 6 digits punch in all 6 then hit enter. This will unlock it. Next, you enter in your 4 digit number. This is your personal code. This may or may not work on other models. Take care.
