My Sanyo DWM-400 plays some DVD's and won't play others.
I can play many older DVD's (store bought) with the proper logo's on them
that support the features on my Sanyo DVD player. I try to play newer DVD movies with the correct logo "DVD disk" and Dolby digital, etc.
Re: My Sanyo DWM-400 plays some DVD's and won't play...
I bought another DVD player. I found out that all DVD's don't play on all
DVD brands of players. They are cheap enough these days so I decided
it wasn't worth a repair bill. The Sanyo DWM-400 plays many of my
store bought DVD's and not others. I never tried a home made DVD in
it so I don't know how it responds.

Dear it seems that you DVD device is not in the condition to use reliably in order to read all of the DVDs. As the lense get weeker, such problem become commong. So, I suggest you to change your drive.
This may be because it is region locked. The following will make the player region free and possibly solve your problem. By making your player region free you MAY be voiding any warranty the player has on it.
I have a similar problem with the Sanyo DWM-400. I also cannot turn power off. Even when I unplug it and then again plug in the power cord it will come back on after several minutes all by its self. It will then work okay for a few minutes and will play a DVD and will suddenly quit showing a picture. It seems that something is overheating shortly after turning it on. After letting it sit and cool down for a while it will play again but only for few minutes. Although I have had this player since April 2004 it has rarely been used. I estimate it only been used no more than 10 hours total. With so many buyers having this problem Sanyo should issue a recall on this model.
Somebody said they had the same problem, and suggested the following: On the DVD unit, press STOP and POWER buttons at the same time, and then IMMEDIATELY (1 second or less) press
the PREV button. He said, for him it popped up with WM for the Market and 1 for the Region automatically. The codr WM is 00 if you need it. That was all he had to do, and now it's working. Hope that helps anybody else who comes along with the same problem.
