Will not play blu-ray movie Date Night. I have tried 3 movies

Will it play other movies? If so, your "Date Night" disc is almost certianly defective. Try it somewhere else

If not, the player has a problem. Try cleaning the laser with a laser lens cleaner (something like this: Blu-Ray is more sensitive to dust because of the thinner laser it uses. If that doesn't work, more likely than not the laser has died or requires adjustment.

[Just for the record, I had an early DVD player (I forgot the brand name) that would play every movie fine except "Stuart Little". This movie worked fine on other players, but not in mine. It would enter the menu>special features all by itself. Let us hope you are not experiencing a similar case.]

I have several old dvd players. They work but either the movie won't load and it says ''no disc'' or they are so sensitive that it skips throughout the movie. Any suggestions? it's not the actual movie...

Correction, it prob is the actual movie when it says "no disc". DVD sub formats have changed so much from when players first came out to today that it is like the difference between windows 95 and windows 7. A lot of the new movies will not play on the older players because it does not reconize the format. On the ones that it skips on, the player thinks it knows the format but doesnt have the compression right. Old players make good paper weights.

There's a switch located on the rear of the dvd player in regard to prescan or something like that. Switch it OFF and the player should work fine.

PSCAN shows up on my tv screen when I try to watch movies. How do I delete this?

The solution to the PSCAN! (half screen cut image) is just as suggested, turn off the progressive scan switch in the back of the DVD player to get the full image and enjoy your movie.

Dvd player is not working


You need to switch on/off your  Progressive Scan (Pscan) mode. This may be in your remote or a small switch at the back of the DVD player.

Good luck and kind regards.
