I have a similar problem with the Sanyo DWM-400. I also cannot turn power off. Even when I unplug it and then again plug in the power cord it will come back on after several minutes all by its self. It will then work okay for a few minutes and will play a DVD and will suddenly quit showing a picture. It seems that something is overheating shortly after turning it on. After letting it sit and cool down for a while it will play again but only for few minutes. Although I have had this player since April 2004 it has rarely been used. I estimate it only been used no more than 10 hours total. With so many buyers having this problem Sanyo should issue a recall on this model.

SOURCE: undefined region comes up when I insert any disc into my dvd play

This may be because it is region locked. The following will make the player region free and possibly solve your problem. By making your player region free you MAY be voiding any warranty the player has on it.

  1. Switch on, wait for "no disc"
  2. Enter 11233543254346
  3. Switch off

Tried to record on a DVD-R disc, but unit said that the disc was full. I then tried to finalize the disc, but the unit got stuck in the finalization process. I unplugged/replugged the unit to make it...


The most likely reason the unit got 'stuck during finalisation' is probably because there was insufficent space left on the disc for it to write the respective lead-out/menu data (or perhaps there was a bad disc sector) - disc full? Because you unplugged the unit from power point before it had finished, the disc is possibly corrupted now. Throw that disc out.

The manual clearly warns: Do not disconnect the AC power supply cord while finalising. This
can render the disc unusable.

In other words, you have lost that particular recording and you are wasting your time with that disc.

There is nothing in the manual to suggest the length of time required for DVD-R recovery - there is a recovery process for the whole unit (such as after a power cut while recording a timer program for example) but not for discs. I may be wrong here...

However, the upshot is you have lost a disc, not a recorder. Another drink coaster for your living room.

I have a panasonic dvd/cd player (model NVVP31EBEBL) and i can't remove the dvd disc! any ideas, please?


You mean the disc is stuck inside the player? if that is the case try first turning off the player then turn it bck on and see if you can take teh disc out.
If not you may need to open the player to take the disc out because this can be a mechanical problem or the disc is broken or something..

Hope that helps.........

Entivoe DVD player worked fine. The next day, the tray opens, closes and the power turns on and off but the screen says only "Unusable signal", either with or without a video disc in the player. If there...


check the connection cable to the tv, unplug this an replug it to see if this helps.
if you used a cheaper HDMI cable for example the connectors are very wobbly and often make poor contact....

I have a Sony RDR-GX360. Some how I have changed the command mode from DVD1 to DVD 3. Now my remote has frozen and I can't do anything with the DVR player. Is there a reset button or please help.


To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue is to take the remote for that recoreder into another room or unplug the dvd recorder a moment. Then hold down the enter key and the number of the mode its stuck in ie if its stuck in dvd-1 mode hold down the enter key and then the 1 key. hold both buttons together for 3 seconds. After this go back into the room and try it or if you unpluged tthe player replug it back in. The remote has to be away from the player to work. again example

get away from player different room so it can not sence remote. Hold down enter and 1 button for 3 seconds and then try it
if its stuck in dvd-2 mode dold down enter and the number 2 button together for 3 secondsd and try it. The idea is you have to be far away from the recorder so it dosent recieve any inputs from the remote while doing this.bigsmile.gifclap.gifagreed.gifpuh2.gifbowdown.gifeek.gif To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue is to take the remote for that recoreder into another room or unplug the dvd recorder a moment.

Power cycles on/off without actually booting or starting


Unplug/replug try again. If fails, see if you are still under warranty with Philips.

If both decks have a disc or tape in it , the unit shut down because of a power supply glitch or a mechanical trouble shut down the system control system. One way to possibly get them out is unplug unit for a few hours or overnight even better. Before you plug back in press the eject button and hold it in while you plug it in. Dont let go untill the tape comes out. Now if it comes out then unplug the unit anf replug back in and wait a few secs. to let it reset and do its thing. then see if it will turn on and try to eject the disc. if this dosent work then its a power supply problem and its going to need serviceing unless you know your way aroundservo controls and power supplys . Remeber always unplug these units as they do have voltages on the primary side of the transformer that can bite ya. Good Luck
