Question about Emerson EWR20V4 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Playback of dvds

Error message reads...playback feature may not be available on this disc. Purchased a set of dvds on e-bay, and they will not play on this player. Other store-bought dvds play just fine. Contacted Emerson for an upgrade on the softwear and have heard nothing yet. Any other solutions besides buying a brand other than emerson!?!?

    I am having the exacet same issue.. I read the post concerning country code. But what has that got to do with it and just exactly how do you correct it.



    I have yet to find a disc that will work now on my unit. When I first bought it it worked fine but now it gives the playback error on everything I put in it

    I have a Sanyo dvd/vcr player which says "disc error, remove disc, playback feature may not be available" on every disc, and even when there is no disc in the unit. How do I correct this. The unit is about 1 year old, and worked fine until lately.

My DVD and VCR in one has always played DVDs, and now when I tried to play a DVD, it says playback feature may not be available on this disc. I've played the same DVD on the same tv perfectly before!!


sometimes the discs get scratched enough that the player has difficulty reading them, using some car wax on the disc to clean it may help

I am trying to use memorex dvd-rw dvd in unit it keeps coming back with disc error please eject the disc playback feature may not be available on this disc. What can i do ?? Thanks Bob.


dvd player will only play movies for the COUNTRY in which you purchased it. There is no way to purchase a system or configure a system to play ALL MEDIA FOR ALL COUNTRIES. The country codes are specific and each country wants to prevent any other country from playing their dvds music, etc.

Dvd player wont play


Make sure that the DVD Disc is of the format that your DVD recorder can read. For example, if your recorder specifically requires a DVD -R type disk, it will puke on a DVD +R disk.

Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"


the message you are getting is the machines waay of telling you that it can not read that disc. which means you will have to burn your discs in a different format. or your are using a type of disc it does not recognize.

Disk error message


In the manual there is a list of discs the unit wil play. On the last pages there is a quick reference. There are also region codes that need to be set. Maybe a power outage reset your settings. Also it would be good to know if this unit played disc previously, plays other disks? Or the discs play on other players. It could just be a dirt problem as well.

Manual is available here;

Disc error message-playback feature may not be available on this disc..wrkd fine b4


I had the same error message with my Magnavox MWD200F DVD player. I opened the DVD player and inserted a DVD and found that then DVD never started spinning. Here's how I fixed it. Remove any DVDs in the player then unplug it and flip it over. There should be a slot that is under the DVD tray on the underside of the DVD player. Move the wheel that can be seen through the slot a couple times with a small screw driver. Flip the DVD player back over then plug it in and try to play a DVD.
