Re: dvd will not play

Hi there. If i understand correctly, you do have the official microsoft DVD dongle and remote ? If so, you might wanna see if the remote is defective. Do you have a camcorder at home ? There is a trick to see if a remote sends it's infrared signals. Put the camcorder on, in a dark room, and put the IR transmitter on the top of the remote in front of the camera. You'll see the IR remote transmitter blinking if you press some buttons. Human eyes can't see it, but the camera does! Try it with another remote that you're sure that works, you'll see. If the microsoft xbox remote doesn't do anything, check batteries, else it's proably defect. If you like to tinker a bit with things, you might wanna open it up to check if there's any cold solder point on it (a broken connection), but you need soldering skills to do so. Else, you'll need a new remote. Hope that helps ! cheebster.

How do I change the zone on my Soniq E32W13D-AU?

You should have got a red card with the AU and NZ customer support numbers on it. If you phone them, they will tell you how to unblock the player to make it region free.

On the Soniq QV191LC TV and DVD player, you follow these steps. It may work for your model but if it doesn't, try the support line.

1. Switch on
2. Switch to DVD mode (use Source button on remote)
3. Select DVD setup menu (press DVD button on remote)
4. Select Preferences page (use > key on remote)
5. Press '0' key 4 times on remote: the Region Code menu will appear
6. Use up and down on remote to select region (0 of course)
7. Press exit button.

You should now be region free.

Try these numbers:
AU 1300 765 663 / (61) 3 9543 5111
NZ (64) 9 2667512

Good luck!

Display problems while playing Virtual Console games

If you are experiencing display issues (dim, blank or half-blank screen, ghosted image, etc.) with a Virtual Console game while using the Component Video Cable, please read the following:
Some Virtual Console games default to displaying 240 lines of video. Some HD TV's are unable to display a signal with only 240 lines. Try the steps below to set the Wii to output 480 lines of video, which may solve the problem:
  1. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.
  2. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
  3. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)
  4. Select "Operations Manual" from the Home menu.
  5. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.
  6. Close the Home menu. The game should now display correctly. Note: You will not have to do this the next time you play, as the Wii console will remember these settings.
If the Virtual Console game is still not displaying properly, but all other games work fine, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

I put in my action replay after it loads then i put in the game i want to play, check the codes i want to use then select play with codes and hit x after it says ensure that the game in in the console and...

Try selecting fewer codes and letting the game boot. Too many codes at once overtaxes the cpu. When this happens, you can get many results, Action Replay freezing, game not loading, or glitched game.

Ps2 action replay wont work on 60gb ps3

The Playstation (R) 3 has most likely been patched. I find it knocks back not only Action Replay but XPLODER also (The EU version of Gameshark) both for PS2 it is likely that SONY has blocked it out to stop consumers playing region locked dvd movies. So if you in UK you can only play Region 2 PAL dvd's, if you in the us, you can only play Region 1 NTSC dvds. If in AUS, you can only play Region 4 Dvd Disc....etc.... AR Max had a feature to bypass this problem, thus why sony has probably patched against it. As for a solution I am also searching for one, truth be told, I don't think there is one.

You should boot up your codes on your PS2, then the game.
Save your game.
Then copy your save game to your PS3.

Hope this helps.

Changing parental control

Start the PS2 up and load the DVD. When it shows the Parental screen select YES. When the Password box pops up. Press the Select button on the controller. Type in 7444. Then your password is reset. It will ask you to enter another password. Do that twice. Allow the movie to start. When it gets going pause the movie, Press the Select button on your controller again. The DVD menu pops up. highlight SETUP. When that setup screen appears go to the 3rd icon from the left. Press X. Then highlight Parental Code. Set the parental lockout level to OFF.
