Is it new or just started having this problem. Unfortunately there is a reason that this Dvd players sells so cheap, it has a habit of breaking in one way or another. Most likely your firmware needs an update. If that don't work then I would just take it back or buy a new one depending on your situation. Read reviews before buying one and you shouldn't have to worry so much later on. Please let me know if you want any further information or if you have any questions for me. I am here to help and am more than glad to do what I can in any way possible to get your problem fixed.

Thank you

Cannot play certain dvd discs the make is panasonic model num nv vp33


Panasonic NV-VP33 is a DVD/VCR combo unit. These are good, but limited in DVD media playback formats. It depends on the types of DVDs you are trying to play, and their region codes (if they apply).

This model will NOT play:

DVD-ROM / DVD audio / DVD+R (unfinalised) / DVD-RW / Blu-Ray (obviously).

This model WILL play:

DVD-R (finalised) / DVD-RAM (no finalising required) shop-bought DVD movies / CD-R (for JPEG/MP3/DivX) / DVD-R DL (finalised) / DVD+RW (titled or with a top menu to make them compatible with other players, but again, finalising not required).

You didn't specify which DVDs do not play in your unit.

I would be very concerned if your player didn't read ANY DVDs at all. I assume the image below is what the model looks like. I have never had any problems with mine.

When trying to play a computer generated DVD +R DL, I get a message that says this type of disc cannont be played. please insert a different disc


The disc is probably an incompatible format for this model player. Even if the disc is finalised in your PC, or in a DVD recorder, this player may still be unable to read it. Some DVD recorder/players do not recognise DVD+R (or +R DL) media, while others won't recognise +/-RW discs (except CD-RW); this is a model limitation - not a fault with either your player, the PC burning software or the discs themselves.

Nothing can be done to fix this except purchasing a model which accepts multimedia (+R/DVD-RAM etc). The question is, does your player play ANY normal DVDs? I am guessing your player will accept DVD-R DL discs just fine since this is standard as well as proper shop-bought movies.

Which recordable dvds play on this dvd player


this brand and model should be able to play the discs you mentioned witih no problems, unless it is defective, or a error is being made when you are recording the discs. If you are recording and they ar enot playing, most likely you are not "finalizing" the discs durring the burn processs. All discs MUST BE finalized to be played on any dvd player.

It will not load certain dvd discs


Below is a list of discs that should or should not be used with the DVD recorders.
DVD-R
4x can be used
8x will result in a disc error.
DVD-RW
2x can be used
4x will result in a disc error.
The following discs have been tested and are proven to be compatible with our DVD recorders.
MEMOREX DVD-R
FUJIFILM DVD-R
FUJIFILM DVD-RW
IMATION DVD-RW
IMATION DVD-R 2.0
TDK DVD-RW 2X
TDK DVD-R 2X
The following are brands of discs we DO NOT recommend:
MEMOREX DVD-RW
SONY DVD-RW
SONY DVD-R
TDK DVD-RW 4x
TDK DVD-R 4x

Please be aware that a free software upgrade is now available to customers. This upgrade will enable your unit to recognize the (DVD-R 8x) discs. To obtain a copy, please call 1-800-242-7158. Customer service by phone is available 7 days a week 6:00am to 9:00pm pacific time.

In order to receive the upgrade we need to know what firmware version your unit requires. First you need to access the DVD recorders service mode. Turn on the DVD Recorder and the Television, make sure the unit is on the DVD side. You may access the service mode by pressing the CMSKIP button on the remote control. Once you press CMSKIP you must press the numbers 1,2,3. You must do this quickly so it may take a couple tries. The model name will appear on the screen followed by Firmware Version. I need to know the serial number next to FE:
Press the RETURN button to exit screen.

I'm having problems formatting discs for Panasonic EZ47 DVD recorder. Keep getting "formatting unsuccessful" message.


Now here are the types of DVDs that you can record to DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL
Now the only types that you can format are DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD+RW
So first make sure you are not trying to format the wrong type of DVD. If you are using the correct type then you might want to try a different brand. Sometimes certain brands of DVDs have problems with certain players. You can also try updating your player's firmware and see if that corrects the problem also.

When i place a recordable dvd it reads "no disk"


If you have +R/RW you can use only +R or RAM DVDs.
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3610576#Specifications
Also check the allowed maxximum recording speed (refer the manual, please). If you have for example 4 you can not use disc higher when 4 (it has to be marked 1-16)
If you use 2.7 you should use only discs there it marked 2.7 speed etc
If everything seems OK you need to use CD/DVD clening disk ($6 Walmart)
Please kindly let me know if you need more info. I am here to help
Good Luck
