Sixteen year old car with only 40K miles must not be driven often, or sat for some time. I would suspect fuel system issue, such as bad pump, clogged filter, bad regulator or faulty injectors. Start by testing fuel pressure.

BRDVD Bluray incompatibility list

INSIGNIA BRDVD Blueray player

I like many people have bought a Bluray movie for my BRDVD Bluray player to have it not work. It is unfortunate part of Bluray and near every player has or will have some disc that will not play until a later update is made.

I noticed that it is really hard to find list that tell you what Bluray movies have problems as well as what those problems are. I will have a short list and will try to keep it updated whenever I get a report that a Bluray is having problems. Please report any problems by sending me a email at or sending me a message in the comments here.

  • Inglorious Bastards-Disc will skip back and not play movie through the main screen. No fix is confirmed.
  • Couples Retreat- Main movie will not play. No fix is confirmed.
  • An Education(BBC video)-Movie skips back to main screen and will not play main video.No fix is confirmed
  • Alvin and the chipmunks-Main movie will not play. No is confirmed at this time.
  • "9"(Nine)- Main movie will not play. No fix confirmed
  • Twilight- Canada only- Movie would not play. Please contact the company located on the disk sleeve. It was a glitch that many player could not overcome so it would go back to main menu.
  • Percy Jackson-said to skip and at times not play at all.
  • Kick ***- Movie will not play and just gives an error on start up.

Please contact me with any info on fixes and problems. I will make several other lists for other players. I bought Inglorious Bastards and all I have is a $25 coaster now. I would like to keep this updated to help others not do the same. I will post any and all problems people are having with differant disk and any possible solutions.

From Netflix is going to be speed of your network. It is unable to stream it as fast as needed. Buffering may not be happening fast enough either.

Ps3 skips while playing dvd

Get a dvd cleaner cd from walmart or target that is made for blu ray's and that will help you out a lot, if you have a console like mine where the top opens and you can access the dvd and see the eyes if the laser, take a q-tip with some isoproyl alcohol and clean both eyes off, but make sure the q-tip is not overly soaked since you don't want the extra liquid dripping into the console!

I have the philips 120hz and some movies are smooth, others jump

I would advise knocking down the resolution. Try and use software, like red kawa, to convert a few of your movies to different formats till you find a decent one. A widely accepted codec setup is Divx/XVid (both are the same) and MP3 sound.
