New Transformers movie won't play

Just put the new Transformers movie in to watch...saw about 5 seconds of the intro, then it locked....rented another Transformers movie from a different place...same thing happened. Change the DVD player to "region 1" using the code, but still didn't work. It just locks up and won't move forward. Says "root" on the player. Any suggestions?

I have the same exact problem with that dvd player. So far i am not aware of any solutions yet. I called phillips and they said they will try to create new firmware uprgade for the dvd player to fix the problem and they told me to keep an eye out for it on the website. I installed the most recent firmware too but that didnt help at all. The only other solution i see is maybe downloading the entire movie from pirate website and burn the dvd files onto a high quality disc at slow speed with a good dvd writing program.

    Update:
    I have gotten the dvd to play after doing a few different things.

    1.rub the disc thoroughly with a soft cloth.
    2.unplug any peripherls like usb,memory card and the ipod dock.
    3.just as the dvd player turns on and is loading the disc immediately mute your tv and dvd player.

    I think updating the firmware to latest is optional but it may also allow it to work after trying the previous steps.

    The muting of the dvd player seemed to have done the trick but do the other steps to be safe, the dvd may have some thin oily layer. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, i believe its a codec/sound error that the dvd player cant convert so it freezes.

Actually, the problem lies within Paramount. My "digging around" showed me that Paramount uses a certain form of security protection software to protect from pirating. Perhaps this Philips HTS 3565d cannot decode this encryption. Just an educated theory based on lots of Internet digging.

Vizio vbr210 error 11000404 How do I update firmware to watch newer blu ray movies?


I had the same problem -- we even returned the disc and got a new one. Go to the Vizio site and download the firmware for your player. Put it on a USB stick and plug it into the player. Follow the onscreen instructions (basically just press OK). The entire process takes less than 5 minutes from download to finish.

The Hunger Games works perfectly now.

My Samsung BD-P1600 will play a SD disc but the rental Bluray discs won't play. Is there any way to reset the player? THX.


It is not the player you need to reset, it is the rental DVD's. They are encrypted with a code to limit the amount of time they can be watched, thereby protecting them from being stolen or not returned. Send them back to the rental company and rent the same movies again. That is your only solution. Your player will play whatever is put into it. I hope this helps.

The dvd player will play a movie for about 10 minutes then it gets freezes and does not play anymore. It's brand new. had it about 2 months.


I found out this tv/dvd will not play certain movies that are rented from netflix is that their dvd have a restricted thing, and this tv will not read the movies that are on certain disks. It plays movies good that I rented here in town. So theres nothing really wrong with the player itself. I did some reading and this is what I assummed.

Dvd movies intermitently slows to near stop playing irratically


Have you examined the DVD's to see if they are abused and/or damaged by those who rented them? If there is no damage (unlikely for rental DVD's) what does the 'problem' look like?

Age of empires 2 for mac doesnt work on my user


I bought my white mac book exactly a year ago... so its still pretty new I guess.... heres what you do
1. install "age of empires 2 1.0.6 update" from this link:
http://www.destineerstudios.com/support/aoe2.html

2. right when starting the game, hold the command or the apple button and a option screen pops up.  It will now allow you to select "force 256 colors" due to new update.  Check that box and press play.  some forums say you also need to select "don't play intro movies" or select don't change resolution or something like that but I did not have to do that.  So I can also watch intro movies... yay.   All I did was select "force 256 colors".  Hope that helps.  It took me an hour searching online to find the solution.
That should fix the problem.
Some forums say that I have to  change resolution 640 x 480 as well but I did not have to say that either.

DVD'S will not play..


Sounds like the unit is bad, or set to the wrong Regional Code. Its not easy to set the regional code and it varies by model. You are better off buying a new DVD player given they can be found for under $30.

New DVDs won't play


What studio label? Some Newline DVDs appear to have some new protection, newer than the Sony ArcOS protection (or whatever it is called).
