DVD player won't play certain movies

Our dvd player has started getting "picky" about which movies it will play. More than a few will not play in the player, but will play on our Mac. Recently, I got a few dvds with three episodes on each disc, and the player would only playback the first episode. Once again, my mac would play episode 2 & 3. What's up?? This isn't the case with all dvds.... is it our player or Netflix discs? The recent episode "episode" was brand new discs..not a scratch on them. Any ideas?

Why Philips dvd player won't play all dvd movies?

This is not a fault. Some movie burned formats might not support the player.

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 : )

I downloaded a movie on my computer and burned it to a DVD disc. I can play it back on my computer and other DVD players but not this one. I get a message '' No Disc''. Can you help?

The MVD2027 has a bit of a reputation for being really picky about which discs it will play. It's often especially poor with recordable DVD's, and especially with rewritable discs. This kind of behaviour can also be an early sign of a failing laser head assembly.

All you can do is to try the movie recorded onto different brands of recordable dvd and also see whether it makes any difference using DVD+R or DVD-R. Other than that, there's nothing else you can do.

What is a good burn program for this DVD player? I have tried 3 different programs, and all them will not play in the dvd player. I have a MAC.

The Mac and software is not the problem. The Sony DVD player is the culprit. Sony has some proprietary bullsh.t lock hardwired into their system to not play burned discs.

Go on e-bay and look for region free DVD players, which will play any disc like a champ. Sony is a good brand, but they are picky about playing certain discs. Re-gift this thing to someone during Christmas or sell it.

Every time i put a movie to play,it tells me that it does'nt recognize the disk.

Are you using a rented movie (ORIGINAL DISC) or a recorded disc (surface is purple like) - Some DVD Players especially older ones are picky about media and might not read certain media types or brands properly or support them at all. If your player is rejecting every disc even original ones, then you might have dirty lens or a bad player.
Do not attempt to open and repair yourself you can be exposed to harmful laser - I also do not recommend lens cleaners either unless absolutely necessary.

If you are trying to play blue ray on this unit you are out of luck no amount of firmware will make it play something it is not capable of doing.

Dvd troubles

Same problems with my unit.  But, try this... I think it worked.  First, you can not get to the setup screen for the unit with a DVD in the player.  So, remove the DVD first:  Unplug the unit, wait a few seconds, plug it back in.  Then hit the DVD open button and remove DVD in player. 


I think the issue with not reading certain DVDs is a problem with the "parental control" on the unit. Without setting parental control there were a few DVDs I could not play and sometimes (not always) I was asked about parental control before a movie would play.  At the Sony Blue DVD screen, select Setup on the remote control.  Select DVD setup and get to Parental control.  Set a password.  This will then take you to a "rating" screen.  By setting the rating very high (I set mine for #8) any movie should play without needing the password.  With no password set, you can not change the "rating" and hence mine was set at #1 (kids).  It seems to have worked for now anyway.  Good luck.

Won`t play disney movies

Apparently this is a known issue. Some dvp642 players have compatibility issues with some of the Disney DVD's. A firmware update might help. There is a discussion of this at:
