Re: Dwm-3900 wont play dvd's

Mine did the same thing for any media, DVDs or CDs. I took off the cover and when it started to spin which was very slowly, i took my finger and spun it fast and viola, it works fine. So i would assume that the motor is not putting out enough to spin from a dead still.

Re: Dwm-3900 wont play dvd's

Because you have limited knowledge of your products history, first ensure that your Country Code is set correctly. Using your remote, access your User Menu/Setup > Country Code > U S > Memory > Setup. I am assuming that you are in the US, and are trying to view Region 1 DVD's. Please update for further instructions if the above doesn't solve your problem....good luck.

In DVD mode, Progressive Scan shows on screen. Just press the stop button on the front panel for about 5 - 10 seconds and it will go back to standard mode.
I did the same thing tonight and I just tried pressing buttons
