Trying to put on closed caption on gateway tv 42 inch-a large black screen appears


don't know if CC can be used when watching a DVD. seems to me that it would cause a conflict on the display where the dvd is sending the image which is really not part of the TVs input control options.
CC is usually related to the digital signal from signal broadcasts and not video images coming from an external source. if it was controlled i would think it would be from the dvd remote controller. not the tv.

My media player want play dvd's


Maybe your screen resolution needs to be higher? What type of error message are you getting? Are these dvd's that you were able to play before?

Most computers will have problems playing dvd's that someone made for you on their computer. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it plays.

You can always reinstall windows media player at Microsoft's site below.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

You can also try the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve a lot of issues that Media Player could not fix.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

With all of the problems, you are looking at two solutions. One being to back up all of your data onto an external hard drive and then take it to your local computer repair shop (not Best Buy) and have it reloaded and the other option being to invest in a new computer. I highly recommend newegg.com for inexpensive brand new laptops or try www.bobjohnson.com for used laptops. If you need something rugged, they have Panasonic Toughbooks for cheap. If this was helpful then please give me a good rating, thanks!

Very faint vertical bar moving across plasma screen.


OK... Left to Right is weird. I'd say one of two things.
Refresh Rate might be to low or to high, but i doubt this to be the cause. I'll put my money on external interferences. Something like another PC screen? TV? anything magnetic and I've even in some cases noticed PC side panels too close to a screen can cause this.

Burning disk to be played on tv does not work.Dvd earror msg: "cannot read this type of disk" frank


Not all dvd players can read disks burned on your computer. To maximize the chances that it will play do the following:

1. If your DVD burner supports it, use DVD+R discs. +R has a higher compatability than -R.
2. Burn at a lower speed.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
