My player is giving me a messege on the screen saying that the dvd is not compatible with this player. The only problem is that its a legitemate dvd ( not bootleg) and I was just playing this same movie two days ago. I received this messege after I unplugged it and connected it to a different T.V.

Re: NOT PLAYING DVD'S
Have you tried that dvd in another player? Have you tried another dvd in your player? Since this began after you moved it, do some backtracking. If someone says...it quit AFTER I did...such and such, then THAT is most likely the cause. I have solved many problems by backtracking.

if its saying wrong region. then either your player or disk is incompatable. region 1 ntsc ( USA ) Region 2 ( UK ) et,c. check your players region coding is compatable for your country, and that you are also playing a dvd with the same region coding as the player. alternatively is to try and find a region free or multi-region solution.
Mike @ Compurepair.
So for example if you have an R2 player, press REPEAT-3-8-7-6-7.
If you've done this correctly (and your player is compatible with the hack), you should see a number at the top left corner of the screen corresponding to the current region.
Now, pressing any number from 1 to 6 will change to the corresponding region. Or, press 9 for auto-region mode.
Next, press OPEN/CLOSE to open the tray, followed by Standby (or DVD POWER) on the remote to close it and put the player into Standby mode. The next time you turn your player on, the new region will be set.
If the above codes don't work try 57538.
Mine is doing the same thing. I turn it on, it lights up, it says open, but it won't play dvds or cds. Its not spinning and theres no sound. It used to be a good little player. Is it fixable for a reasonable price or is it shot? Thanks for your help, Jim
First you need a player that plays divx if it does then try downloading the movie onto a different disc the dvd-r have never worked on my player even though it says they will the dvd+r sometimes works its a crap shoot.
