Only half the screen displays on DVD player, Wharfedale WDP 1210

Is your DVD Player's model WDP1210 or WDP3397B.

If you are using one of these model I will strongly recommend to use AV output to a TV instead of using its LCD screen. If you get full picture at TV, You will isolate the matter that LCD module has problem. If so you can check with a local repair center. If you have any help regarding TV connection via external AV cable please post a follow up message

Hope it will help
Happy New Year

Why am i getting ''please wait try again later'' message

Test the remote control. Use the digital camera , point the r control viewing the camera, and with the camerA ON, you must see the LED I.R ON. see the picture. If NOT you must open the remote and clean the keypads from dirty+ and resolder the cold joint from the LED.
try again. However if the LED is o.k read your owner manual download for free go www.

No turn on but a message on the display. The message is PLEASE WAIT


This message is displayed when the device is checking for its hard drive and DVD drive to signal back that they are operational. You can consider this a bit like the BIOS of a computer as it is waiting for its devices to come back with a "READY" signal. If "PLEASE WAIT" is scrolling across your screen for a really long time it could mean that the two devices with moving parts (HDD / DVD) may be having an issue coming up. UNPLUG unit from wall. Wait for some time (5 min) and then plug it back in. If your device is still not working then you have either a bum HDD or a bum DVD. Considering which one is working all the time (HDD) you probably have a dead hard drive, but my own unit's DVD drive went nuts, so that is also a potential source of the problem.

Either way, your local computer repair store can have a look at this issue, considering what the unit is is basically a single purpose PC

I have a Sony BDP-S360 DVD Player, 1080p, that gives me a "Not Supported Mode" on my Samsung 1080i plasma TV. Model # HP-4253. I'm using a HDMI cable which I know is good because I used to with...

The error message you are receiving normally signals that the component you are connecting to your TV is outputting a video signal that is too high for your TV. You mentioned that your TV is a 1080i unit; the player may be trying to send a 1080p signal to it.

Pages 42-44 of your manual describe how to setup your output video mode. It may be that you have your video set to auto. The second column of page 43, just under the table labeled BD-ROM 1080/24p Output, describes how to press HOME to display the home menu, and then change the BD-ROM 1080/24p Output setting. You should be able to turn this OFF, and your picture should then come up, as the player will automatically lower the resolution until it finds one that will work.

If after lowering the output resolution you still receive the message, then there may be a problem with the Video Output circuit of the player. The player should be able to communicate through the HDMI cable to find the proper resolution. IF defective electronic components are stopping this from operation correctly they will have to be replaced. If you still have a warranty left they should cover this cost.

If you don't have a copy of your manual handy you can download a copy at the following website:

No hdmi funktion to my new LED TV.

Most likely the output from the Pioneer is not compatible with the TV.
Try resetting the output by holding Stop (on the pioneers front) and press the Open/close button. This will reset the output signal. Also, if the harddrive in the Pioneer is defect, the HDMI signal will not output.

Cant figure out to hook up keeps saying no signal with hdmi cable to tv and blu ray put in

What kind of TV are you hooking the dvd player up to ? You may have to go into the TVs menu and set the input to the proper resolution or input style to see a picture. The dvd outputs a 1080i and if the TV is set to 720p it may not show a picture, the dvd output can also be changed to match the TV.

The display has R68:33 on it.

The problem ( the display has R68:33 on it) turned out to be what I had suspected, the TVGOS could not find a signal. The error code went away when the DVR had searched for the signal even though it could not find one. Cox cable discontinued the TVGOS signal so I don't get TV Guide, that is the way it is.
Thanks to all that contributed to the articles on how to fix the PLEASE WAIT problem by replacing C1270 & C1271, you saved my DVR

I have a 32" LCD TV that I can't seem to get any of my DVD players to work on. Keep getting error message "no video signal" but They use to work. help

How do you have your DVD player hooked up to your TV(i.e. composite, s-video, component)? Some DVD payers and TVs have menus to switch inputs and if you somehow switched off the input your players are connected to, you'll get a "no signal" message.  First try hitting the input button on your TV or the Input/connection option in your TV's menu.  If that doesn't work try hooking up the DVD player(s) with the composite Cable(yellow), the component(red,green,blue) and S-Video(black/round) at the same time. If you scroll through your TV's inputs you should get a picture on one of these connections and the TV should display which one. The display will usually be in the corner of the screen.

Interface error! Trun off the power

Okay...sounds like you have a lot of signal splitting as well as devices that may also weaken your signal. With digital cable, you won't see snow or what would be a dead give-away to a weak signal. Only analog signals do that. Digital signals give you crisp clear picture or they drop out.

Try taking the cable directly from the wall to the DVD-Recorder. If you are able to watch channels and manipulate the device, then you can start from there as the source is good and the recorder is good.

Try to place the DVD-Recorder after the first splitter and see if you still receive stable signal. You'll probably need to leave the unit in this part of your A/V chain.

It really sounds like you need a signal amplifier for all the splitting you've done, or to re-work your A/V stack into something more manageable. It is entirely possible that the built-in tuner of the new DVD-Recorder is not as sensitive as the old unit.
