I have the above DVD Player and my grandson is coming to visit. I need someone to help me figure this thing out. I have connected it to the back of my TV with the 3 connectors but I only have two connector openings on the front of the DVD but the wiring has 3 connectors places. Also the direction card says to press the power button on the back of the DVD but there is not power button, just the electrical cord and the three slots for the wiring that came with the DVD. It does light up and I can open and use the eject tray, but nothing plays. Am I supposed to turn the TV off? Not sure and I don't want to do anything that will hurt the TV or DVD. Help. Thanks MS

Netflix doesn't know what they're talking about. I looked it up - your DVD player doesn't have an autoplay feature.
Can you try the DVD on another DVD player. Computers DVD drives generally read them differently - and decode them differently, than a regular DVD player. Also, if your DVD drive is a writable drive, it will have a stronger laser than your DVD player.
I think it's likely the disk is damaged, slightly. If you cleaned your DVD's laser, it might be able to read it well enough to play - or it might not. I started having problems like this with a few of my own DVDs before my DVD player's laser went out. Basically it's a combination of laser quality and disc quality.
If it remains just this one disk, I'd suggest leaving it alone. But if you start running into this problem on other disks as well, you'll probably want to have the laser replaced in your DVD player.
1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.
2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.
3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.
4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.
5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.
I have great news for you. Yes, there is a universal remote and it will operate the S99 and (I suspect) any other product you have. I have been buying 'universal' remotes for more than 15 years and have NEVER found one to work until this one. Logitech Hamony Universal Remote. I had a $50 off coupon for Costco where it was sold for $100 (so I got it for $50). My wife is so excited she can hardly stand it. With 4 remotes in each room, she is clueless about how to watch TV again after it has been setup to watch something else. But, with the new remote (all others have been stored away), she has all she needs.
No, I don't work for Logitech. I just stumbled upon this and thought, what the heck, for $50 I'll try it and if it doesn't work I'll return it. But it works!!!
This could be a symptom of a board error, but before you get too close to the bin, check the cable connections. If you are using scart leads, they can sometimes come adrift at one end or other through thermal expansion and contraction. Make sure they are secured fully.
You could also try changing the connection point on the TV if you have a spare, just to prove the input channel is OK.
i used this same procedure^on a different model.
The number is entered via remote control pointing to the unit.
after entering the right code, there should be a secret menu that will appear when you press setup , mine appeared as preference. On this menu, you can find the region.
You can fiddle around, you cannot destroy the unit.

maybe you can read what the other people have done.
