It is most likely that the laser is not a problem because it can read the first part of the disk. If the laser is defective, it willn ot recognize the disk. The problem is probably the seek mechanism. It can only access the inner tracks but cannot read the tracks further from the center.

SOURCE: DVD will not play when the play button is pushed

call support from manufacturer on how to reset your player,
For instance, on Samsung players after it is powered on you hold in both channel buttons for 10 sec and the player restarts. that fixed mine that had the same problem

Hi, I recently purchased a Panasonic DVD S48 dvd player. I was assuming when I bought it that it was a multiregion product. This seems not to be the case as it will not play region 1 dvd's that I...


hi Pjkgbr.
this is all i could find out, now if you do try this do so at your own risk.

This hack requires the S48 remote plus a universal remote configured for the S48 with a separate 'Pause' button (or another Panasonic DVD remote with a separate 'Pause' button may work).

I used a cheap universal remote.

1. Select DVD device on remote.

2. Hold magic button until the DVD button blinks twice.

3. Enter device code 0490 (DVD button blinks twice)

Neither the 'Play/Pause' nor 'Frame' buttons on the S48 remote work for this hack.

1. Power on.

2. Open tray.

3. Using the S48 remote press Audio, 1, 9, 8, 2, Subtitle

4. Using the other remote (URC 7562) press Pause.

5. Using the S48 remote press 0.

The DVD front panel should now show the text "on".

The DVD should now be region-free. Region code hack posted by spook65, December 12 2012:

DVD-S48EG-K (Region 2)

This is the process for unlocking, the Panasonic DVD-S48 for
multi-zone.

Please note, you will need a universal remote control which
has a PAUSE button in order to unlock this player.

1. Turn the power ON
2. Open the disc tray
3. Using the remotes, press AUDIO 1 9 8 2 SUBTITLE PAUSE 0
4. Switch the player to STANDBY and then switch ON again.

The display should read ON after you enter PAUSE 0.
If this doesn't happen, switch the player off and start the
sequence again.

The remote supplied with Panasonic player has a PLAY/PAUSE
button rather than a separate PAUSE button. If you use the
PLAY/PAUSE button, the tray will close and the unlock
sequence will be aborted.

To get round this, you need a universal remote set-up to use
with the DVD player. After pressing SUBTITLE on the
Panasonic remote, quickly press the PAUSE button on the
universal remote, then press 0 on the Panasonic remote to
complete to unlock code entry.

or this one.
What is the process for Multizoning a DVD-S38 / DVD-S48 / DVD-S58 / DVD-S68 / DVD-S500 / DVD-S700 DVD Player? Providing your DVD Player is one of the below models, you can multizone the unit yourself using the remote supplied with the product and another Panasonic product remote thas a Pause button on it

Applicable Models:
DVD-S38 / DVD-S48 / DVD-S58 / DVD-S68 / DVD-S500 / DVD-S700

Multizoning Process:
1. Power on the unit and open the disc tray
2. Using the remote that came with the player, press the following buttons in sequence
3. AUDIO 1 9 8 2
4. SUBTITLE
5. Using the other Panasonic Remote (not the one that came with the player), press the PAUSE button
6. On the remote that came with the DVD player, press the 0 (zero) button
7. If you have followed the above process correctly, the word ON should be shown on the front panel display of the player*1

*1 Please note: The models DVD-S500 and DVD-S700 do not have a front panel display,
so the only way of confirming that the multizoning process has been done correctly, is to
try playing a DVD disc from another region code other than region 4

I have a PHILIPS DVP3962. My DVD player used to play where I left off watching my DVDs, but recently, when I turn it off and turn it back on, it starts from the beginning of the DVD. Dose anybody know why...


Resume function is wiped from the player's memory buffer whenever the unit is switched to standby (either with the [POWER] button on the main unit, the remote or turned off at the wall), the disc is removed, or the [STOP] button is pressed twice (either on the front or via the remote).

(The simplest thing you can try is to insert a DVD, play a few minutes of its main title, press [STOP] once, not twice, leave it for 10 minutes, then press [PLAY] - it should resume, and thus continue your movie from where you left off)

Resume is considered 'temporary memory' in DVD devices, and therefore is not intended to store the playback point of the disc permanently whenever power is lost, [STOP] is pressed twice or discs are ejected.

However, this is relatively normal, and is not a fault, but it can be annoying to the user.
