Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

I have a eiger vision EVP-DVD5 in my truck. I've had it since 2002. Within a year, the DVD player started acting up. It would sometimes get hung up and would not read the dvd, even when the dvd was clean. Now it seems to play some movies but none which seems to have an in depth menu. It only plays, when it wants..., children's types of movies with no advertisements.

SOURCE: portable dvd doesnt play movies

Try cleaning the lasers lens with an anti static cleaning wipe. I used " nice'n clean" that I had purchased from Walmart to clean my laptop screen. My dvd player started back playing after gently wiping the laser lens.

SOURCE: The DVD player does not recognize disks that it used to play before.

It sounds like the DVD region (a setting in both your OS and your DVD hardware) may have been changed. DVD regions are the agreed upon method (by entertainment companies, hardware manufacturers and governments) to limit cross-border sharing of media. Most valid (read: non-pirated) DVDs have a region code. Your DVD drive will only play DVDs with a region code that matches the DVD region code set on the DVD drive.

You didn't mention your OS but if you are running Windows XP then go to Start->Control Panel->System->System->Hardward->Device Manager and find your DVD player. Right-click the DVD player and select Properties from the menu and you should see a properties dialog-box with a DVD region tab. This is where you can change the DVD region that your player will recognize. Be careful, don't play around here, most DVD players have an embedded limit on the number of times (4-or-so) the DVD region can be changed.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Disney dvd player wont play movies (dvd) but plays music (cd) fine

Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.

At first my Plextor PX-760A can read CD, DVD5, and DVD9. But after couple of years, it reads CD and DVD9 not DVD5 anymore

this is called aging effect. different-2 wave lengths are required to read and write different type of disc. these different wavelength rays are emitted by a lense iside every dvd player or drive so as the time passes lense weakens its ability and can not emit the required wavelength to read that type of disc.
so no need to panic either u repair ur dvd drive lense or get it replaced with a new one. hope it willl be helpfull.

I am trying to record with a sony dvd-r disc and the recorder don't recognize it. the only disc that works is the dvd ram 4.7 but that disc does not work on other standard dvd players. what is the answer?

According to the official description of that recorder, you should have no problem, this is from the description for the DMRES15:

Recordable DVD Media

Record your favorite shows onto DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM DVD discs. The DMR-ES15 is also compatible with DVD+R Double layer media and provides up to 14 hours of media recording.

Multi-Format Player

Don't worry about limited playback capabilities, the DMR-ES15 can play DVD, DVD-RW (VR Mode), DVD-RW (Video Mode), DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, VCD and CD-DA discs. Also, you can play your favorite songs from CDs or MP3 files, and JPEG images.

Harmon Kardon dvd5 player will not come out of the standby mode , will not power up.

hi lowone.

here is a review i got from or HK DVD5 users. Unfortunately HK cannot have the issue fixed over the phone, so the best way for you to resolve the issue is to bring the unit to an authorized dealer and have it repaired. a replacement is also possible depending on how well your unit came in.


I admit it, I am very partial to HK products. I own 2 of their receivers (one of these for 2 years, the other for 6, and they both

work beautifully), but as far as dvd players go, they have done a very shoddy job in terms of lasting power. The first unit that I bought lasted almost a year (to the day). Then one day, the unit wouldn't come out of standby mode, with a few dvds trapped inside. HKs techs couldn't help on the phone, and they had me drive down to New Jersey to an authorized dealer, who kept it for 2 months (these can only be repaired in CA at a specific HK repair shop it seems). After making a bit of a stink, HK sent me a refurbished model. I've used this one about 15 months, but now this one is starting to act flakey. The picture will start to stutter, and break up, then will stop completely. This is on pristine discs with no smudges or scratches. I have reset the processor, but this doesn't affect the problem. So now, I don't know how About Schmidt ends, because the player encountered these problems towards the end of the movie. Very aggravating. I spent about $500 for this, then had the long drawn out problems with getting the unit repaired, and when all is said and done, these played for about a year each before problems were encountered. HK definitely has to work on improving the longevity of their dvd players. Until then, I think I will shop for a different brand, since this one is on its last legs.

Hope this helps,

Diamond Vision DVD player not working

I know a solution its called RECALL. Start manufacturing in NORTH AMERICA. Management in large companies are stupid. Manufacture in North America and get employees to play a game. (Its called lets save the company money the more cost you cut with-out job loss and safety of our product the higher the reward) THE MORE YOU SAVE THE COMPANY THE MORE YOU GET.
EXAMPLE-----you save $1500 a/year = dinner for 2 at a resturant
