    I have 2 DVD players, with my second player I get both video and audio (I can play a DVD.) With my Cyberhome 1600 I get only the audio. I can play a DVD but can only hear the voices, the screen remains blue. I tried changing the cables, but I get the same result. The problem is in the Cyberhome 1600 player. Cyberhome is out of business. I need someone who has encountered this problem before.

    I have had one possible answer that did not cure the problem. Hope there is someone out there that has an answer to help me.

    please read what my problem is. It is not the T.V. or the cables ( using player #2 everything works fine ) The Cyberhome has an audio output but the video is a BLUE screen. It is possible that I may have entered an input on the remote that the unit did not like.

    there is no on screen display at all, only a blue screen. I believe this happened when I inadvertantly pressed a button on the remote. I do not remember which button, it may have been CM SKIP

It sounds like you have set video output to compost or s-video but you're using component video (or the other way around). You're going to need to try with a component cable, an s-video cable and a composite cable to find out what output the DVR is using. Unfortunately the manual is no longer available to download so I cannot tell you what button on the remote changes the output but if you have the manual still this is what you are looking for. It would be useful to know if you can see the DVR's onscreen display or if you are not getting any video output at all. If there is no display on any output unfortunately this suggests a physical fault, your DVR is essentially a minimal spec PC with a specialist graphics chip, it's not unknown for the graphics chip or it's DV decoder hardware to fail.

    Try the "Source" button.
    Thinking about it, it is much more likely that you pressed the "Source" button and the DVR is trying to display from an input that has nothing connected to it such as the composite sockets on the front.
    try pressing Source (or it may be marked input) and giving it 3 - 4 seconds, if nothing happens try again, however if you try it 4 - 5 times and nothing happens then nothing is going to happen.
    By the way CM SKIP skips forward when recording, usually 30 seconds per press, and is normally used to skip commercials.

First thing to check is to plug it into a different TV set if you have access to one. If still not working, then suspect the cable or the DVD player/recorder itself. If it works fine on another tv then all depends on which input you have it plugged into on your main set - get the right cables to try plugging it into a different input on the tv (post back with the TV make and model and the details of which input and which cable type you are using if you need help with this). If you have cable or satellite or another DVD/VCR/PC - do they work on the TV? on different inputs. If not then the problem is either the TV or possibly the TV settings. How are you trying to send an e-mail? perhaps with some details we can help. Hope this helps :)

I want to play a flash drive with a movie with sound on it. I can't change from internal memory to usb flash drive. Can you help me?

I think I follow what your asking, so I'll do my best.
It reads that you want to play a movie you have on a flash drive through a digital picture frame.
Have you tried copying the flash drive to the internal storage and them playing the movie?
I think the biggest part of the problem is that the picture frames aren't capable of playing full movies, just slide shows. And any sound it has is on a separate section; not truly "linked" like a DVD or computer is. Picture frames are pretty much one trick ponies.

I had the same problem, and I ended up calling the LG service center 1-800-243-0000 and they told me I needed an update that for some reason was not coming up when trying to complete the updates on the player. It was not available so they are going to send it to me in the mail.

I have just bought 4/5 DVDs from crossword, ahmedabad which are english movies with region codes of 2/3...... Was not aware up until then that my blu ray DVD can only run DVDs of region code 5........

If you bought your player in the USA, you can only play region 1 movies. You may find a "region free" player online. that is the only solution.

Sony tv will play copies of movies from tv, but won't play store bought new ones. I mean current popular ones. It played Avatar last week but won't now. We tried several new movies and none will play. Put...

There is some confusion in the explanation here.

The TV does not play movies it displays them It is the DVD that Plays them. But of course you knew that. Some of the newer movies like avatarcan be on Blu ray if your DVD is supposed to play Blu ray but doesn't don't be surprised as they have changed the format recently. Your DVD will require an udate of firmnware. Go to the website of the DVD brand and contact support Download the update and burn it to a disc and run it.

With the TV end Make sure the resolution can be accepted from the DVD you are trying to Play. If it isn't HD or capable of 1024x768 at 16.4 then it may not be able to display the image. Is there any sound?

If sound but no Pic then start playing with the picture format. go to 8.2 or 4,0 to see if it makes any difference
