Question about Emerson EWD7004 DVD Player

1 Answer

Will not play my dvd-r

I have an Emerson EWD 2004 player and it will not play my burned slideshow on dvd-r 16x disc. The owners manual says it will but when i place the dvd in the player tray and close.........nothing. The tv is on the same station as when we play purchased dvd movies. There's just a blank screen. The player light indicates that its playing but nothing on the tv screen. What's up with this? The dvd-r was burned on my brand new Toshiba lap-top. I think the burner is a mitshita dvd-ram UJ-841S. The disc plays on my laptop but will not play in my emerson player. Please help.

I have never been able to play a slideshow 0n my dv454 no matter where i had the discs burned what am i doing wrong? ps the discs play in other dvd players

Check to make sure that the format of the discs burned are acceptable by the dvd player, some companies do not support certain formats. refer to owner manual as to which ones are readable on your particular dvd player. if the dvd player plays other regular/non-burned discs, this is the probable issue,...more info is needed if this is not solution.

best of luck

While it is true that not all dvd players will play,record, or even acknowledge some media I don't think you need a firmware.4X -16X is the max . write speed of the DVD disc. It should be OK with slower speed machines.What did you use before? Good Luck.

Cannot record on 16X DVD-R

You will need to call Funai 1 800 605 8457 give them your brand / model number and expose your problem - they should be able to send you an upgrade disc but it will cost you -
If you want my advice - you DO NOT need a 16x disc inside a DVD recorder - the optical drives used on DVD recorders and even worse a Funai drive are quite bad as it is in terms of writing strats for higher speeds - you are better off recording at 8x on a 16x disc.this will provide better burns ( lower PIE/PIF errors and jitter %).

Playing recordable dvd

My Emerson won't play anything except DVD Movies, never has, wasn't suppose too. Make your movies in DVD Video format and it will read them fine (unless it's broke). I make movies all the time and play them back in mine. It reads DVD-R, DVD+R, and in duel layered. It will not read RW disks!

Man I've every problem you can imagine with DVD Players. I've found when the disk gets stuck, as long as it's not jammed. You can turn the unit off or unplug it. Plug it back in but DON'T TURN IT ON! Instead hit the eject button and the drive should open the drive without trying to read the disk.
