My girlfriends DVD player simply will not play some new DVD movies we rent at Block Buster. We recently rented a new release and the screen remained blue - DVD movie would not play - went back to another BLockbuster and rented the same movie, but his time I had them put it in there player to verify that the DVD movie was ok. It played with not problem. Got back home, and same intitial blue screen - did not play. Needless to say, we grabbed a DVD movie she owned, at they all played with no problems.
What gives? Is there some new format that is being used that this DVD player cannot read? The movie was a Sony manufactured movie.
Any suggestions/information? Do we need to get a new DVD player? The player is only about two years old.

If the rented DVD is too scratched it will cause the DVD player to pause while it tries and find the next available playable area on the disc. This may cause the player to skip to another part of the movie. Try wiping the disc with a damp cloth from the centre towards the outer rim and dry the same way. Fingerprints ect. also cause problems. If the scratches are circular the player will have a hard time trying to play the disc. If the scratches are straight and small it shouldn't cause too much problems.
I have a Sanyo Dvd/vhs player and I recentlty went to dish network instead of cable and I do not know how to get the player to work now so I can watch movies that I have rented. Can you tell me how to use the remote to watch movies.
I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.
Somebody said they had the same problem, and suggested the following: On the DVD unit, press STOP and POWER buttons at the same time, and then IMMEDIATELY (1 second or less) press
the PREV button. He said, for him it popped up with WM for the Market and 1 for the Region automatically. The codr WM is 00 if you need it. That was all he had to do, and now it's working. Hope that helps anybody else who comes along with the same problem.
