I have a Zenith I played a dvd an it worked fine - put another movie in the dvd player and was going to watch that one and it never read - screen kept saying 'reading'. I tried another dvd and the...

try using a CD cleaner disk..

How old is the system?
DO CDs work when you try them?
Put a disk in... remembering the position it was in..
Then try to play the disk...
Eject if it does not play and look to see if it has moved to a different position...
If not, there is a motor problem or the laser is not sensing the disk being there.

Have you ever opened up the main box of the system?
Has anyone else been inside it?

If yes, then maybe it is time to do it again to observe if there is movement of the laser pickup..

The system shuts off after a few minutes

It could be overheating, have you checked how warm it is? Is it in the open. Zenith systems seem to have a lot of problems associated with them

I have a Zenith DVD/VCR and I am recording a tape

unless the security camera has a setting for recording the date stamp you probably can't. The camera probably has a setup tab to enable embedding the date stamp on the video.

Hi. I'm trying to play a homemade dvd with several slideshows and a selection menu. It works jst fine on my PS3 at home but nothing shows on our son's TV that's connected to a lifestyle 38. Other DVDs...

The dvd may be in the wrong format for your Son's t.v. PS3's play several formats that the lifestyle 38 may not be compatible with. You can download a video converter such as Any Video Converter and format the disc for whatever format you need. Probably mpeg2. Then it should play on most players.

No audio for tv?

Since not all devices have the same in/outputs available, if you are trying to interconnect them, it helps to know the make and model of both, not just one.

There are several possibilities to connect external devices to your 'home theatre' system.
The one we have delivers the best when S-video is used but that requires a separate path for sound.
The standard colors for audio in and outputs are red(=right) and white(= left) and often cables are supplied with the same color coding.

The usual connections will be named 'Line in' and 'Line out.' The outputs deliver specified voltage into a specified load (or termination) and the inputs expect that condition.
This ensures that volume controls act in a sensible manner.

RCA RT2250 consistant shutting off in Satalite mode.

Mine will always just turn off every minute or so after a hard shut down(ex: power outtage). I have to turn it back on and then hold the set button for a few seconds, then it stays on, until i turn it off manually, since the remote won't turn it off.
