    thanks for your help, but i downloaded the divx programe and converted my avi movie unfortunately the dvd player does not read the disc.

    I think, it is the avi. format that LG machine is having problem reading.

    Speak to someone at LG helpline. My guess it is the format and not anything else.

    I will also check here and hget back with further info.

Don't know if I can help or not, but this what I do.
I've downloaded the DIVx player and converter software (free) to my computer. I can download mpeg, avi movies, etc, and convert them to DIVx format if I need to. The DIVx player has a 'burn' feature that is fast and burns them in a DIVx format. My old DVD Recorder will not play DIVx format but my 'cheap' Phillips will. I just keep it hooked up to my old DVD recorder through the front RCA input jacks. When I want to play a DIVx movie and watch it on the TV, I use the cheap Phillips player. I have to change the input on my old DVD Recorder to 'Front Input. I usually record the movie on a DVD R in my DVD Recorder while I'm watching it if I want to keep a copy to play later on the DVD Recorder. Most of the time, I burn the movies to RW DVD and erase them later.

I don't remember the web site for the DIVx players and converters, but you should be able to find it with a search.

Hope this helps.

Dear Cauci

I haven't a final solution for our problem. But I found a problem in the power supply. If you disconnect the CD-drive from the internal power supply and then connect to an external power supply, the recorder starts up normally.

Maybe it's help you. Please let me know, if you find a really solution.

My panasonic dmr-ea18 says it supports Region 1. How may I unlock it to play Regions 2 and 4 also?

Easy answer. You don't.

Like many Sony and Panasonic models there is no hack possible on this model as the region coding is specific to the internal hardware.

The only way to do it is with a new main board and that will cost far more than a cheap and easily hackable player such as the excellent Philips DVP5980 with progressive scan, USB input, DivX and HDMI upscaling, still widely available at clearance outlets for under £30.

Sorry to disappoint you but hopefully I've saved you wasting time on further searches.

Sounds like your firmware has been scrambled. This can cause your region code to be changed. Call Panasonic tech support and describe your problem. They may be able to talk you through checking your region code over the phone. The process is simple. If your region code is different than the region you are in, your firmware needs to be updated to correct this problem.

Sv2000 - WV20V6 - how to troubleshoot error E 4 54037380

I have the wv20v6 and its doing the exact same thing as all the reviews I have read. This is not a problem from use, its a defect in the machine and I too think the company should help the people fix it. The company should be made to recall or re-imburse people that have this problem. Please add my complaint to the list. Byron Collier in Ninety Six, South Carolina

Says no valid disk

If you would like to know how to fix it, I will have to charge a fee of 19.95. Seens how i fixed it my self i guess that i would fall under the premium assissance experts. I am sorry to be so nasty but it is very frustrating when you spent $200+ on a product and there is no one there to help you with the answer right away, or the answer in not directly in the troubleshooting part of the manual. Durabrand is a joke and i will make sure that i never buy a product from them again, or Lennox as well. It looked to me on another web site that i was looking for an answer for my problem, that they are in cahoots together. Since i do feel sorry for others that have bought a poor customer service product, i will let them in on a little secret, the lens was dirty, i rubbed it with a soft dry cloth and it fixd the problem.

thanks for wasting my time

LG XBR446 DVD Failure

Yeah, the pickup is bad, definitely. Especially by the clicking noises you're hearing. I have no idea why the local repair centers won't look at it, possibly they might not be authorized to repair LG/Samsung? Call LG again and tell them about the service centers that are giving you excuses and LG will talk to the service centers themselves. It makes the service centers look bad and they'll usually look at your unit.
