Question about Durabrand DUR-1700 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Widescreen All of my widescreen movies are being played as fullscreen on the actual screen. I don't know how to change the screen so it will play them correctly, I've tried everything. I do not have a remote for the system so if there is anything I can do by using buttons on the dvd player that would be helpful. This only started happening 3 days ago it used to play them at widescreen but all of a sudden changed.

I have several old dvd players. They work but either the movie won't load and it says ''no disc'' or they are so sensitive that it skips throughout the movie. Any suggestions? it's not the actual movie...

Correction, it prob is the actual movie when it says "no disc". DVD sub formats have changed so much from when players first came out to today that it is like the difference between windows 95 and windows 7. A lot of the new movies will not play on the older players because it does not reconize the format. On the ones that it skips on, the player thinks it knows the format but doesnt have the compression right. Old players make good paper weights.

I have a Pioneer DV-525 DVD player, and recently upgraded from a 4:3 TV to a widescreen TV. However, under the Setup menu, it won't let me change the setting to 16:9. The options are grayed out, and I...

The DVD movie has to be a "widescreen" version...

Check the cover of your DVD movies ... there may be one or more widescreen DVD's in your collection...

That should work.

What widescreen TV did you get? Brand / model.
If it is Samsung ... on the remote, press the "p.size" button (and wait) ... continue pressing and waiting after each press to see if the Samsung will adjust ... You may get a distorted pic ... like very short and very wide people.

What TV Brand / model??

Are you referring to the black bars that show above and below the movie? That's normal, it's called widescreen aspect ratio.

If you don't like that, you want to buy/rent fullscreen movies.

Widescreen is 6:9, fullscreen is 4:3. (Square versus rectangle)

Not all scenes in full screen


The full screen shots are the actions scenes that were filmed in IMAX... there's nothing wrong with your player or disc!

Widescreen to full screen

you can but it'll just come out in a larger widescreen picture. if the DVD is widescreen then that's how the film was formatted. and theres no changing it.
