Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I just rented a new dvd from Blockbuster and I get a parental screen that comes up. I can't get past it and can't watch the movie. All my other movies work fine. Even the feature dvd that came with the film works. I don't know what to do.

You have the rating set on your DVD player to lower than the rating of the movie you are trying to watch.

Somewhere in your setup menu of your DVD player (press the "setup" button on the remote with disc stopped or no disc) you will find a place to set the parental lock. Either turn it off, if that is an option, or set it to the rating of the movie (or higher) to enable viewing.

    I connected & paid for a video on demand movie but nothing comes on the screen-no sound no picture


    Hi bsschachtwhen ordering a Video On Demand movies are downloaded overnight via satellitewhen the receiver is in standby mode, so when renting movies are available fora 24 hour period and can be watched as many times as you like. In your case with themovie you ordered; if there were "parental controls" that are enabled it will not show themovie. MikeHouston of DISH Network

    New dvd movie will not play


    I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
    ENHANCED FEATURES
    This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
    PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
    or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
    I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.

    Can't read disc


    Possibly a bad, or more likely, a damaged disc.

    It's not uncommon, especially with often abused rental copies.

    Tell Blockbuster - they should give you a credit on the rental.

    Dvd video player


    Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.
