Function Buttons No response to any of the buttons being pushed. So can't play the movie or turn up or down the volume or anything. The dvd player still has picture and sound. Was zapped by static electricity.

    None of the front panel buttons function. Everything still fine if using remote. Buttons are functioning as buttons as if you press more than one, or several at the same time, different things pop up on screen. Just the standard start, stop, pause, volume, skip and search functions are no longer associated with the front buttons. Weird

    Only the Play button works on front panel. Remote does nothing.

    None of the buttons are working. Sometimes the movie will play to the menu, but wont go any further because the buttons don't work. Sometimes the movie will try to play, but then at the top of the screen the DVD player says backwards 2 and stops trying to play the movie (error). I just bought it in September 07. I Called the place I bought it at and only has a 90 day warrenty.

    My portable player function keys do not work on the player and only the sound function works w/the remote. The dvd will continually skip either forward or backward on its own. Also the hand symbol appears when you try to use a function key. I have tried all the troubleshooting advise per the manual.



1 Answer

None of the buttons are working at all. We can not play the movie unless we use the remote.

The player will read dvd but will not play cd

Richard: This is what said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    Purchased the DP300 at the Goodwill. The DVD has the remote control;however, I do not know how to use the remote control. I used the red, yellow, and white connector to my the DVD player and to the TV but...

    with regard to using the remote control :

    Make sure the batteries in the remote are working (they go in the back of the remote at the bottom).

    Turn on the DVD player with the power button on the DP300 itself (lower left). Open the dvd tray either with the remote (press open/close button, upper right) or with the button on the DP300. Put a DVD in the tray and close it with the remote or the button on the DP300. The DVD should load.

    Use the arrow buttons in the centre of the remote to select choices from the onscreen menu of the DVD. Press Play (centre of the 4 arrow buttons) to activate the choice you want. For example, if you want to play a movie, use the arrow buttons to go up or down until "play movie" is selected, then hit PLAY, and movie will play. If you want to choose a scene/chapter of the movie, use arrow buttons to go up or down until Scene Selection or Chapter is selected (highlighted), and press PLAY. This should bring up a list of the scenes or chapters. Use the arrow buttons to select the one you want, then hit PLAY, and that scene should play.

    If the DVD tray is taking less than 20 seconds to operate, there is likely no problem. If it is taking more, there may be. I think the mechanism that opens and closes the tray is often the first thing to stop working on DVD and CD players.

    How to get unit to play without remote

    You can probably use the front panel buttons (STOP PLAY OPEN/CLOSE etc) manually, the only thing you cannot do without the remote is access certain DVD menus, including subtitles/language/special features etc. You can always obtain and use a universal remote for basic menu functions later on if necessary.

    To play a DVD movie without the remote, simply load your preferred disc, wait for the player to finish reading its contents, then to skip copyright warnings and/or the 'play movie' menu screen, press STOP, then PLAY, or simply press PLAY button where 'play movie' (or whatever function) is highlighted in the menu. These buttons should be on the front of the main unit. Doing this should encourage the player to detect the appropriate title (the movie) and play it (basic playback operation may not be possible with some DVD releases due to the numerous interactive menus and title pages, such as film trailers).

    If basic manual operation is not completely possible with some DVD titles, consider a universal remote for your player if you have either lost your original, or the player was purchased/received without one. Such remotes are relatively inexpensive to purchase, and are available just about everywhere.

    Keypad not working v9 moto

    The volume buttons on the side of the phone are sticking. My up volume button seemed fine, but someone told me to keep pushing it and the button will release. Sure enough, the volume controls started to work. I played with both the up and down buttons some more and the button below started working. A few more minutes monkeying around with the volume buttons and now all the buttons work.

    How do I get to the ''Menu screen'' when playing a DVD movie?

    It's likely the remote has the wrong code, so it will only work certain functions. You need to try lots of codes, if you do not know the player's code, till ALL function buttons work, not just some.
