Snowy screen playing dvd's

I have an Emerson dvd--vcr combo player which is approximately six years old. Suddenly playing a dvd, the screen became snowy with fine dashes filling the entire screen and the picture was still visible.
I tried other dvd's and got the same result.

Could this mean the player needs to be demagnetized?

thank you for any advice

1.Check audio/video RCA jack cables
2.check S-video(if you use S-video cables)
3.check with another dvd player to get normal picture on your tv system. if picture is normal in this process. then problem with your old dvd player.
4.if same problem occurs in other dvd player. then problem with your television. external audio/video processing circuits
5.if the tv is ok. then the problem with your old Dvd player converting circuits
6. if can be rectified by authorised service engineers
7.Contact service engineer. as there is no recitification process from user part

I have an emerson dvd/combo player and i have had it for at least six years. now i am receiving the error message "unable to read disc" for movies that i have purchased

Insert a head cleaning disc into it and play it for atleast two times. The fault is with Laser Pickup Unit [ the reading head]. If the fault is due to dust or fungus on its focussing lens, the cleaning disc will wipe it off. If this does not help you, there is no other way than replacing the Laser Pickup Unit with same type and number fitted now. OK.

DVD Player doesn't work on DRC6355N VCR/DVD Combo

With most dvd/vcr combo units there is separate wiring. When I use my emerson combo unit I have it wired that I have to be on different inputs on my tv to view a dvd and a vhs. On some units the vcr portion is wired via a regular cable line, while the dvd portion is wired with the yellow, red, and white component cable. Try inserting a dvd and scrolling through your tv inputs until you find the picture or check your wiring to ensure nothing has come loose. If that has no result you could try wiring it differently if possible to eliminate that as a possibility.

When I place a vcr in my machine all I get is a snowy picture. Why would this happen? The DVD player works but not the VCR

Make sure the tape you are trying to view has something recorded on it. Also insure that the tape you are trying to view is not recorded at a speed your DVD Recorder/VCR combo can not handle. If it is a pre recorded tape and it will play on another unit, then your VCR heads are dirty. Try using a VCR head cleaner. If that doesn't work the heads may need to be cleaned by hand or possibly may be bad, a trip to the repair shop would be call for then.

Unable to retrieve picture on TV

when the screen becomes snowy, it means that something in the cable box is being overheated. what you should do is take a small desk fan and hold it beside the cable box. this has happened many times when my family has played on their xbox 360, and the desk fan solved this problem. i hope that this helps!

Emerson VCR/DVD player - can't get tv (cable tv) to play anymore

I have the same problem with my Emerson VCR. When the ADD button is flashing, just press the menu button to exit the menu. It will add. That's the only thing I know to do. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
