Have you tried changing audio modes on the unit (Main, Stereo, SAP)? For further help, can you please give me the make and model of the tv or unit in question. Thanks

    Have you gone into the menu and tried changing any of the audio settings? It is an LCD tv then too as the model number doesn't match any I have?

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.

If this doesn't happen with regular DvDs you rent or buy, there may be something wrong with the way you're recording DvDs then.
It could also mean the lens head on your DvD reader is dirty

Hi, my DVD player was bought in Hong Kong, brought it back to England to use. recently, it is not reading discs properly, always say"no disc", no problem to read card though. I am wonder how and...


DVDs are encoded with a "Region Code" to allow studios to control release dates around the world. Hong Kong Region Code is 3, UK is 2. Your player will not play back Region 2 DVDs that you are purchasing or renting in UK. It will work fine with Region Code 3 DVDs I would bet.

Sorry to deliver the bad news.

How do you fix the laser burn cirle on an xbox360 game


Take it to a place that rents or sells DVDs. Like blockbuster or Gamestop. Tell them your problem and ask if they can run it though their professional disk buffer.

They might charge you 3 bucks or so.

I have a 40GB ps3 and when i put mlb 10 the show in from blockbuster(rented)the ps3 did not read the disc, although it does read DVDs and has internet access working. What should I do?


Blockbuster "Cleans" their DVDs/BlueRay Discs/Etc....

.......Using a Buffer-type device to basically rub all the scratches off........
and fill them in as well.........

........So.........

Just take the disc back and ask for a new or better copy to rent........they won't charge you again and they'll extend your rental days to accomodate your inconvenience.
That Should Solve The Problem!

Please Rate Me & fill out a quick testimonial, k.

Thank You! I appreciate it.

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it


Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

Blu ray will not play some rented blu ray rented movies


I had the same problem with some Netflix Blu-Ray rented DVDs, and here's what fixed it:

(1): Download and burn the latest firmware (version 4.50) from Sony: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=4320&mdl=BDPS300

Follow their procedure carefully. For example, do NOT burn it to a CD-RW, only a CD-R. The downloaded file is an ISO file that you can burn with Nero Burning ROM's "burn image" menu item as well as a wide variety of freeware tools.

(2): AFTER the firmware has been updated, perform the normal reset procedure: Power it on, press the front panel STOP button (the square icon) and press the power button at the same time.

Good luck!
