Not a solution, but this will still allow you to watch DVDs until you carefully research customer feedback on DVD players. (Which I didn't do when I bought my DVP3962!)

That happened to me after 6 months. I used the A/V cables, then after a week or so I tried HDMI again. It worked for another 5 months, and is now crazy colors again.

Unable to get play dvd or get picture on DVD channell on tv

If the player is doing that for all DVDs but playing CDs properly, the player has gone bad due to either the laser and lens being out of whack or the DVD drive just doesn't recognise DVDs anymore and needs repaired or replaced.

Sorry. Best of luck.

Won't play DVDs or CDs at all. Reads error code C-104.

Sansui VRDVD4005 will record DVDs provided they are DVD-R NOT DVD+R. I have one of these for 3 going on 4 years and I took it apart and cleaned the dust off the magnetic hub and that worked for awhile but (2-3 months) now I'm having trouble finalizing again. Someone on this site said it needs 8x NOT 16x disks ... 'cause it's an older unit ... I'm checking it out in the users manuel.

I have a Samsung DVD-R 120. It will not read/play, as it comes up with "the disc cannot be read or played, please check disc" on the screen. Even brand new straight out of the package. Which can be played...

Exactly the same problem with mine. I even went shopping today after months of buying dvds that wouldn't play, to buy a new player. I then had a silly revelation. I pressed open and with a tight grip on a cotton bud I swept all that I could reach within the recorder. Can you believe it but it worked. Now I have my multiregion back and it has so far played all of the PAL 2 and PAL 4 dvds that I have bought since the PSO came on months ago. I don't what the problem was or if this is relative to your problem but I wanted to let you know....

A piece of junk dvd player I just bought

Here's the support site with contact information. When you say it "quit working," how so? Does it spin up/power up? Are you having trouble playing DVDs? What model? It'll help to troubleshoot if you can give us more details.
