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.

The chapter title on Avatar keeps popping up in a box starting about chapter 14.the longer the movie goes the more often it pops up and the longer it stays on screen.i have a bd-hp22x model.

try to play this disc on another set to check for any errors, this could also lead to tricking the micro to shift the menu. Also load the cd next time and click on required fileds only, also avoid the sub titles and check again..

DVD plays well until it stutters midway thru and

If it only happens with one disc, try using a Disc Doctor/Skip Doctor on it. These instruments will repair scratches and depending on the disc, repair pinholes in the disc. Usually it's just polishing the surface of the disc. Some instruments totally resurface the disc by stripping off a thin layer of the disc to remove scratches and other damage. (Used game/music stores will do this).

Put DVD into player - wait for regional code violation screen to appear. Once this happens press the M (Memory) button on your remote control. Then press 1 for Title 1 and press Play on the remote.

Not playing movies

The clicking sound is the lens assy trying to move on the traverse mechanisim and the release spring is ticking. You might want to crack her open and look for any foreign objects in the laser area. You can also try to move the lens assy by hang gently sometimes they get stuck for no reason. Let us know :-)
