SOURCE: hdmi

I have just purchased a Philips DVD Home Theatre System HTS8100 (Soundbar), HDMI, ambisound, etc. When I play some DVD's though I get the message "wrong region". What does that mean and how do I solve it. Also why do only some DVD's come up with that message.

SOURCE: DVDs & CDs will not play

If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!

Want to play my sounds through my tv or bluray


This unit has HDMI out so if you can connect it to your TV with an HDMI cable it should carry both Audio and Video. You say that it won't play DVDs so it makes me think you might have a bad player that you will have get replace through warranty. If you have it connected to your tv and you see some form of welcome screen come up when you power on the DVD player but it won't play discs I would exchange it. As far as other codec are concerned, it says that WMA and other formats are "available". This seems to mean that they are not pre-loaded but the device is capable of using them after some process is followed to install them. I can't tell from their site if the player has internet capabilities or not. One spec said that it has wireless but no other details. If you can connect it to the internet then I would guess the menu would have a way to update it through the internet adding in the new Codec other wise you might have to download them from another computer and put them on a usb drive to install them.
I hope this helps. Good luck

I have the Samsung HT-C550 home theater system and a Sony 42" HD TV. The two devices work well when playing a DVD but when I watch TV I can't get the TV sound through the home system. I am...


Try this:

Purchase a 3.5 mm jack (it will have a smaller connnector going into the TV and Red and White connectors on the other end).

Pull all the other cables running into the Blu Ray player out so that you are only left with the HDMI Cable coming from HDMI Out (DVD) to HDMI/DVI In (TV), along with the 3.5 jack.

You will be able to play the TV sound through the system.

I am in Australia and have a Panasonic SC-HT878 DVD player that plays PAL DVDs fine through my TEAC TV but when I play NTSC DVDs I only get a black and white picture. How do I fix this so my NTSC DVDs play...


There should be a setting on the DVD's menu for output of picture. You should look under colour settings, to see if it has got NTSC output. You should also check your TV it might not be set to NTSC aswell. You can look in the user manual of the DVD to see if says anything about NTSC playback. If you have lost the manual you can download it for free on the Panasonic website.
If it won't playback NTSC discs, I'd guess you can get an adapter from somewhere.

DVD will not play just get a blue plus sign coming down the display after th DVD sign graphic. TV screen shows digital and no disc. Any ideas lease?


is it a burned disk? if so your dvd player might not be able to play that type of dvd... i know sometimes also scratched ones won't play at all as well... of course also make sure everything is plugged in correctly and if it does this with more different dvds then there's something wrong with the player itself... which i hope is not the case as those are very difficult to fix yourself

As a general rule, Blu-ray and HD do not mix, unless you have a dual format player. That said, I will assume that you are using AT Least one of these newer format players. A standard player will not play either of the higher definition format discs...accordianman

Its not designed to play HD DVDs, the model has HDMI connection in order to connect to latest output devices, viz flats panels and LCD tvs there by having a common audio and video cable. your model has a feature to upscale the normal DVD singal to match the quality output of hull HD TVs, hence the HDMI out put, do not confuse this with HD compatiability.

Go to the link below to check the full specs of your system.

though yours is a high end set, but its not HD disc compatiable.

Playing burnt dvds in black and white


Cause: You are trying to play a DVD with NTSC-standard on a PAL-videodevice. Solution: switch your video-device to NTSC-standard or to "AUTO". Explanation: I had this "Black&White" problem after I played a DVD which I downloaded from Internet. My video-device (beamer) was set on PAL and gave black&white pictures, but when I switched it to "NTSC" the problem was solved. Apperently the Sony DAV-DZ100 switches automatically from PAL to NTSC when needed.
