    I'm on my 4th or 5th dvd player, they seem to be working fine, that is until a few weeks after the warranty expires. Then it will freeze in the middle of a program, skip to the next chapter, or not read the disk at the start. I tried cleaning both disk and player, unplugging the player, and nothing works. The problem then becomes progressively annoying until the player's motor becomes loud and I finally toss the player into the landfill and go buy another. This has happened with most brands of players over the last year, ranging from the expensive disk burners to the cheapest players from WalMart, costing as much as a movie ticket for 2 or 3 adults. Whatever happened to respect for consumers and concern for the environment?

    Koss Home Theater freezes or skips. You can't watch the movie because it goes from the beginning to the middle to the end--very frustrating. Going to the scean menu seems to work sometimes. Very frustrating. Bought a new Toshiba with 1080P UPconversion today and I'll try to patch the two together so that the speakers run through Koss and use HDMI through Toshiba HD tv and Toshiba 1080P. Learned my lesson about electronics--after a year or two they go into the landfill. From now on I'm buying a relatively inexpensive one with some bells and whistles to keep up with technology. Plastic isn't so fantastic.

SOURCE: My DVD player wont read a disc

There are several things you can do to try and solve your problem: Make sure that the DVDs you try to play are encoded for the right region. Make sure that the transportation lock (usually a plastic screw on the bottom of the unit), is not engaged. Turn off player with disc inserted, unplug temporarily from wall outlet, plug back in and turn back on.

SOURCE: Unit totally locked up

I called the secondary 800# as the number in the manual has a recording for "if you are calling about the drc8335 call 877-805-0519" how bout it? A separate number just for this unit?

The guy said to unplug the unit for at least 30 MINUTES & that I would have to rescan in all the channels I have spent alot of time scanning in by rotation of the antenna. Geezzz I wish I had returned it to the store before the 90days were up... (price has dropped below $150 was 219 last year?)

SOURCE: Magnavox DVD/VCR player stuck in progressive scan mode

sounds like you will probably have to just try pushing each button separately for 10 sec until you find the one that makes the light go off. For my Sony DVR had to push the pause button for 5 sec.

Region free?


This will fix change the dvb312 to region free for an individual dvd. Must be repeated each time you want region free.
Insert the different region dvd.
A message will appear on the screen "check region" (or something like that)
On you remote control press the "display" button. Quickly press the number buttons, "1", "2" and "3". It should now let you play the dvd.
It has worked on mine which was bought in 2003. We have watched a ton of region 2 movies. Good luck.

Recorded dvd's won't play in another dvr


The problem is not the dvds themselfs it is the other play that you are trying to play them in (some players do not play DVD- and DVD+ or any other of self recorded disks) Look on the players box to see all what types of disks it can play!
