It sounds as though someone set a password without your knowledge. Take your model number and go to Funai's website to look up the owners manual http://www.emersonaudiovideo.com/support/manuals.aspx

Parental controls


HI,
Do the following for unlock the parental control. For this you should need the remote for the DVD payer.
1. Press the set-up button on the remote (set-up display will come on the TV screen )
2. Using Right arrow button or Left arrow button select DVD Setup menu
3. Using Down arrow select Parental control and press Enter button
4. now you can change the parental rating using up down arrows
If it ask for password the read the following carefully and do the same and enjoy your videos.
PARENTAL CONTROL LEVELS 1-8
The Parental Lock allows you to limit the use of your DVD Player to only those DVD discs that do not exceed the rating you specify. When the Parental Control is set, DVD discs that support this feature will play only after the password has been entered. However, typically only discs produced by major entertainment companies support Parental Control. Discs not supporting this feature will be "immune" to Lock-Out. When you attempt to change the Parental Control setting, you are prompted for a password. This of course makes sense, as this option would be useless if your kids could enter the Setup Menu and disable it! If there is no user password set, you'll be prompted to enter a new password. Choose a 4-Digit numeric password and write it down in Case you forget it. Key in the password and press ENTER. After the password is set, press ENTER on the CHILD option. You can choose from 8 levels of Parental Control, corresponding to the standard rating system in the USA. The available levels and their equivalent ratings are listed to the right.



PASSWORD - CHANGE
Here is where you can set an additional password to the default factory password. The procedures to change an existing password or enter a new password are the same - you must enter the OLD PASSWORD, then key in your new password twice to confirm. If you are entering a new password, or replacing a password you have forgotten, use the factory default password of 3351 as the OLD PASSWORD. If you are changing a previously entered password, you may enter that value as the old password.

A. Remember to keep in mind that the key to the the factory default password of 3351
B. Once the factory password has been changed, you should keep the password written in a safe location as a reminder if needed

I inserted a DVD and the words parental control limit comes up on the screen. It's rated R but I have received many dvds from Netflix rated R which played with no problem. There is a bar with a picture...


If you are able to, go into the setup menu, select 'parental control', check the rating (8 is restricted - 1 is no restriction), and 'unlock' (if you have not set a password) then exit the setup. This should solve the issue for all future discs (parental lock is a pointless feature in DVD players, as often, owners set passwords, only to forget them later, so they cannot undo this function).

* This is for a Zenith XVB442 DVD/VCR combo, but essentially a similar setup *

If you forget your 4-digit password
If you forget your password, to clear the current password
follow the procedure below.
1 Press SETUP to display the setup menu.
2 Enter the 6-digit number 210499 and then press
ENTER.
The 4-digit password is cleared.
3 Enter a new password then OK.

I do not recommend setting parental lock passwords in DVD players, but you may not need to do this, so the above is a 'just in case'.

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.
