1) Check the cables if you are connecting to an external stereo
or speakers.

2) Press control-alt-delete to launch the program manager, and look for other tasks hawking the system. Try increasing the media player's execution priority by one notch (right-click on the task in the task manager, and change the priority to "Above Normal")

VLC player, for example tends to cause music drop-outs when the computer gets busy with other tasks. Make sure the computer is powerful enough to play music on, and don't run big applications at the same time as playing music.

It should be at least a P4 at 1.5 GHz these days and
512 to 1024 MB of RAM

Also make sure that the CD / DVD player is up to scratch
in terms of reading speed, and that it is not damaged or dusty inside.

Finally make sure the CDs or DVDs themselves are not damaged. If so they can often be re-polished by a professional.

The actual data on a CD is stored on the label side, underneath
the label/reflector. The laser shines through the plastic. If the plastic is scratched the laser beam scatters and you get drop-outs and errors. But this can be re-polished. If the label is damaged, however, there is a strong probability that the data is gone. Also CDs and DVDs uses powerful error correction schemes and data re-dundancy to compensate for minor damage.

The dvd has started playing everything green. We never record and have only played about 25 dvds in it.


Sounds like the settings for the dvd output have been changed. Need to have it re-calibrated.

How do I play DVD on the BlueRay player?


According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.

I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.

MODEL NUMBER: VBR231

*Model Features:
* Full HD 1080p Video Playback
* Integrated Dual Band Wi-Fi - 802.11n
* 7.1 Digital Audio Output
* Backwards Compatible (see below)

*Compatibility:
* Plays Blu-ray and DVDs, Audio CDs, MP3s and Jpegs
* Multi-Channel 7.1 Audio Output via HDMI
* Playback and Enjoy Media via back USB Input (JPEGs and MP3s)

*Outputs:
* HDMI 1.3
* Component Video (YCrCB)
* Composite Video
* Stereo Audio
* Coaxial Audio
* Optical Digital Audio

I hope that helps somewhat.

I just bought a JBL CS3/CS5 DVD Receiver several months but only started to unpack. Unfortunately while moving house, I lost the receipt and guarantee card. But when I setup the system, there is no video...


Hi,

I had the same problem with mine - eventually it just stopped playing anything. Turns out that the HDMI from the Tv to the CS3 was actually 'reprogramming' my CS3. My flatmate gave it a system reset and that seemed to fix it.

I now have the problem that when I play blueray DVDs with dolby digital from my PS3 via optical digital i get the sound cutting out intermittently for a couple of seconds grrrrr.

No human sounds when playing dvds.


sound like the center channel is out
either bad connection at speaker or receiver is not putting out sound on center. A quick swap of speakers at receiver end will tell you if it is the latter

Dvd will not play movies


I'm assuming the system says that there is no disc and you've tried factory DVDs (self made ones can have intermittent results on different burners).

If that is the case, this is probably a problem with the drive's DVD laser. There are two different lasers in most (probably all) combo drives. One for CDs and one for DVDs. You need a new drive.
