SOURCE: The player rejects the blu ray dics stating incompatable disc.

Have you upgraded the Blu-Ray software lately? I had to upgrade my older Panasonic 10A that would not play some DVDs. I upgrade it, and now I can play them all.

SOURCE: blu ray discs freeze up after playing a few

Do the reset that is in the menu first. After completing that reset hold down the power button on the bluray player itself not the one on the remote until it displays reset on its screen.

SOURCE: We have a Panasonic Blu

It sounds like the bluray laser is worn out. Try cleaning the lens with a Blu-ray lens cleaner. If that dosen't help it might be the blu-ray laser it self. The laser is dead. If you are under warranty the call the manufacture for service. Shop around for current retail prices. Bluray players have gone down alot and it might be better to go ahead a buy a new player.

SOURCE: Sharp Blu-rAy player won't play Blu-ray discs but

Due to the nature of players often if the optical Pickup unit inside is dirty or failing Blu-rays will not play but DVD's will.

How do I get non blu ray dvd play


If you have only a Blu Ray player then you cannot get a regular to play on it. You need a DVD player that plays both formats or you need one that plays regular DVDs.

My blu ray 3d dvd player will not show picture on blu ray discs only sound but will play regular dvds correctly


The video for blu ray disks come out of the HDMI port and that has to be connected to the TV for video. If it is connected, make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI port on the TV (assuming you have a flat screen HDTV).

My toshiba BDXK100 won't play DVDs other than Blu-Ray


There may be a issue with the assembly, blu-ray plays with more precision and speed, for some reason it is not slowing down to play the regular DVD's may be a padder motor problem.

My Vizio blu-ray player works just fine for regular dvds, but when I put blu-ray in, it reads "no disc".


Make sure the disks you are trying to play are the same region code that your blu-ray player is set for.

If there is no issue with the region setting, and you recently purchased the player, return it immediately because the blue laser transceiver is not working.

If you bought it "someplace else" check the labels..... there is a common "burn" where normal DVD players are being sold with blu-ray boxing and labels. I even heard of a person getting a box of bricks!

How do I play DVD on the BlueRay player?


According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.

I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.

MODEL NUMBER: VBR231

*Model Features:
* Full HD 1080p Video Playback
* Integrated Dual Band Wi-Fi - 802.11n
* 7.1 Digital Audio Output
* Backwards Compatible (see below)

*Compatibility:
* Plays Blu-ray and DVDs, Audio CDs, MP3s and Jpegs
* Multi-Channel 7.1 Audio Output via HDMI
* Playback and Enjoy Media via back USB Input (JPEGs and MP3s)

*Outputs:
* HDMI 1.3
* Component Video (YCrCB)
* Composite Video
* Stereo Audio
* Coaxial Audio
* Optical Digital Audio

I hope that helps somewhat.
