Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 Camcorder

1 Answer

RCA Digital Video Disc Player

DVD player plays all of our owned DVDs fine, but when we rent, it plays them randomly--meaning, when you put it in it may play or it may not.  If not, I get a message that the disc may be dirty, wrong region, etc.  It is neither.  After 5-7 tries it usually plays.  However, if you pause the dvd for more than a minute, then it freezes, and you have to start again.

 

Any ideas?  Thanks, Mike

    I do use lens cleaners regularly and, i should have mentioned, that our home discs--at least my son's--are more scratched than the one's we rent.  thanks though.

It may be that the lens on your player is dusty, and with nice clean well cared for disks, like the ones you own, it's ok, but for disks that have small scratches or bigger smudges on them, (look carefully on the rented ones) it may be just enough more that it confuses the player.  you might look into getting one of the lens cleaner disks you can find in electronics stores.

How do I fix a grainy/ patchy jumping/skipping dvd.


Hello, Bloody_dark -

Often those who rent DVDs or borrow them from the local public library mishandle them and do not know how to handle them properly.

From your question, it seems the DVDs are either scratched or dirty (possibly with food residue.)

This website gives step-by-step instructions on how to clean the readable side of a DVD:
https://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-DVD

If, after cleaning, the DVD still is grainy, patchy, skipping, etc., it is probably scratched.

What I do when I have a rented or public library DVD which is scratched, I return it with a "sticky note" attached to the DVD box stating it is scratched and that I properly cleaned residue from the readable side of the disc, so that the rental business or the library staff will know that the DVD is damaged and can choose to replace it.

There are ways to remove scratches from DVDs, but I do not recommend anyone try those steps if they do not own the DVDs themselves.

Note: I am a librarian by profession and have seen firsthand how people mishandle DVDs. I'm from the 45-rpm and 33-rpm vinyl record generation. We learned how to properly handle those vinyl records so as not to scratch them. Bottom line: We were taught to only handle the vinyl records (and subsequent CDs and DVDs) by their outer edges. For CDs and DVDs, they can be held between the thumb and forefinger, along the inside and outside edges.

I am showing no disc on the dvd player but the audio and video are plugged in along with the remote plug in. Is their something I am missing.


Are you trying to play a burned DVD or a purchased/rented DVD? If so, the movie files will be in a different format. (e.g. .avi or .mpg versus VOB files). Some dvd players will play burned dvds, the key is to look the acronym DIVX. This ensures that the dvd player will play .avi and .mpg files.

Blu-ray discs all of the sudden incompatible and won't play


Look for a firmware upgrade for your player. They exist for sole purpose of increasing compatibility with newer blu ray releases. If that does not do the trick it appears that your player's laser assembly is losing its ability to focus on the disk(s). Repair is not cost effective and you will have to go shopping.

My dvd player will not play HD-DVDs it is an HD DVD player


This dvd player doesnt' play HD DVD's it has a HDD which is short for Hard Drive. Which means you can use it like a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) to record your favorite shows and things like that.

Does this answer your question? If not i'm not sure what you're trying to ask could you be a little more elaborate?

Can't read disc


Possibly a bad, or more likely, a damaged disc.

It's not uncommon, especially with often abused rental copies.

Tell Blockbuster - they should give you a credit on the rental.

Getting a signal from a DVD is a very complicated process, involving bouncing a laser beam off of the DVD, digital electronics, microcomputers, & sophisticated programming. In this tangle of signals & programming, it is not uncommon for a glitch to prevent the player from performing correctly. There is nothing wrong with your player, per se, except that it glitches on those particular discs. The solution is to simply not play those discs on that player. This phenomenon has happened with every optical storage device since the very first laser disc player. Some players simply don't like some discs. You can try a lens cleaner disc, but it is unlikely to make any difference. This problem is just an aspect of the technology, & is not going to get any worse.
