    Are you using a burned DVD? If so, what type of DVD? Or is this a store purchased DVD video?

SOURCE: dvd player gives unknown disc

thats because its region locked..do the following:

start the player without any DVD in it.
open the lid.
while the lid is open press 9,9,9,9,0
you should see region 0 displayed.
close the lid.

Your DVD player is now region free.

note:
replace 0 with 1 to 6 at to set the wanted region number if needed.
do let me know if it worked.

SOURCE: Can't play a burned dvd disc on philips dvp 3120

You might have created a data cd, dvd player normally don't support data cd. If that is not the case then you the file format is not support by your dvd player.

You would have to search for a software to convert the file to the format supported by your dvd player. and write it on the disc again.

You could try cleaning the laser using a laser cleaning disk. Most of the time when it cant read a disk its just because the laser is dirty. If that doesn't work it could just be a faulty laser

Why do some of my CDs jump or blank for short periods on my Philips Progressive scan DVD unit? I have used a cleaner disc and the DVD unit is relatively new.


Clean the disc itself. Look at the side (under the label side) and see what it look like? ove it around in teh light to get a good view. Scratches will do this and fingerprints can as well. Use a soft cloth and buff the cd using a circular motion. If it is really dirty you use a mild cleaner like eyeglass cleaner, etc. Usually the jumps and skips are due to a dirty or scratched media.

Disc shows loading then error on all dvd disc


Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.

Home burned DVDs won't load, commercialy produced DVDs load OK


Try using a programme called dvd flick http://www.dvdflick.net/ to author your dvds and use imgburn http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn them. I had similar kind of problem with dvds burned with nero and now use dvd flick and imgburn all the time and have had no problems. They are both free programmes so hopefully they will sort the problem out for you :)

Sounds like there is a short in your AV cable. Move the video cable (marked with the yellow ends on it) and see it the color changes or use different set of av cables.
