Question about Panasonic DVD-S29 DVD Player

1 Answer

My DVD player, stopped playing in color!

I have a Panasonic DVD-F87 player that wont play in color ( bout 2 years old, barely use it) had  company that waaaay overstayed thier welcome, pushed every button on everything. This is the only thing I have yet to straighten out. I know they ended up going through all the menu screens at one point, I think its just something they did, I cannot figure it out.   


I have checked all my connections, the audio is OK, the black and white picture is lovely (took me a couple of CD's to figure out I should have been watching in color) 


what to do?

Re: My DVD player, stopped playing in color!

Check to see if the coding is set to PAL or NTSC, when watching in PAL, NTSC shows up in black and white. ( NTSC is normal for the USA and a hand full of other countries... PAL is used in ASIA, EUROPE, and most everywhwere else).

I can't find my remote and I want my cd's to play over and over. I don't care about the order. I just don't want to have to get up and push play after each cd is finished playing. What can...

Not much you can do without a remote for this model except play 1 disc (CD or DVD) manually at a time. You could try to obtain a replacement of the original remote directly from Panasonic, or you can look again for your lost one in your home, or you can try a (cheaper) universal remote with this unit. The cost depends on what type of remote you get and where you buy it from (if you order through Panasonic there may be an additional shipping charge). Sequential play (one disc after the other automatically) usually can only be set using the remote.

The fact is, this player needs a remote for full functionality If you want random/sequential play for multi discs, the original Panasonic remote is required - try ordering this first if it is available. If not, then consider a universal. (you could also look on eBay for a similar DVD player remote for this model)

I have had my Panasonic DVD-F87 Multi-disc DVD Player for over three years and within the last 4 months, it stopped playing DVD's. It plays CDS and CDRs' but it will not play a DVD at all (used to play...

Hello jwbabyj hi, 3 years of good listening to music on your player is rather good for its life, no device doesn't last forever, this failure is due to use, dust, temperature, shock, fluctuating power source and other external devices, which will make you player eventually give up. My solutions suggest the following:
  1. Clean your player lens, there are after market lens cleaners, buy one. and use it to clean the player lens.
  2. You may need to remove the top cover to have access to the lens for manual cleaning if the lens cleaner will not work out. Get one clean ear bud, and dampen one side with warm water, rub this in circular motion to the lens, 3 to 5 revolutions will do, use the other dry side to dry off the lens. replace the cover and test. do this several times until the player works.
  3. If still, this does not work, remove the cover and see if the lens glows visible light, to do this eject the tray, do not place any CD, then close, look at the lens and see if it emits visible light. No light bad lens. needs lens replacement. bring it for service.
  4. Check for worn out belts, does your player spindle spins? no spinning spindle bad player. needs spindle replacement.
  5. If 3 and 4 are likely, better buy a new one.

Need help working out what is wrong with my DVD player

If the dvd player is old it maybe the laser pickup lens dirty you can clean the lens but you have to be very very careful if you do try put no pressure on the lens
get a cotton bud/q-tip and clean the lens very gently you will not see much dirt but lite cleaning will remove a film from the lens
I hope this helps

DVD Player will not play 20th Century FOX disks

The Panasonic is not "region restricted". This is a security safeguard by studios to keep people from region 1 from using region 3 content. Some material is released in other countries first and later in others. This keeps other regions from using the content from other parts of the world before it is relaesed by the studio there. Your Zenith is not a region free player and the Panasonic is. There is sometimes hacks on for DVD players to be set to "region free" but not all DVD players are built with it. SONY is another non-hackable DVD player.

Seems that you have to go into setup and look at the Closed Captioned screen set up.
