Coby 224 Screen Slowly Fades to Dark and Back To Light

My Coby 224 has an unusual response to certain (however, not all) discs. On a few of my DVDs the image slowly fades back and forth between dark and light, even when the menu screen is up. It's almost like someone is playing with the light and dark control on the remote the whole time the disc is in. You can see the image throughout this phenomenon, but it sure it distracting. Any ideas on what might lead to this and how to eliminate the problem?

Thanks,

Usually if your getting it with the MENU then your connection is weak, are you going through a VCR or some other type of device besides directly to the tv? Try hooking unit directly to the tv. Besides that, its possible you could of messed with the settings, go to the menu, go to advanced and do a reset to make sure no settings were adjusted, the disk has to be out of the tray while you do the reset.

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

Is this happening with commercial dvds or disks that you've burned? If it's happening with commercial disks, I would suggest trying the player on a different TV to see if the same thing happens. If it does, something is wrong with the player.

The warranty on the player is 90 days from the date of purchase. A receipt is required for warranty exchange.

Coby 224 wrong disc


you can reset the settings through the menu, its under the advanced option in the menu. however, its not a regional error, if it was in the wrong region, it would say wrong region and not wrong disk, try putting the region back to 1 or 0 or 9, 1 is USA, 9 and 0 are all regions.

Coby dvd-224 "loading"


If everything else seems to be functioning, try using your remote to reset the TV. There is a setting to switch the TV from being a TV to being a screen, or monitor, for the DVD player. What the button is labeled varies by manufacturer. It may be: TV/DVD, input, source, display, or something else. Display, for instance, displays the choice on the screen. Highlight and select DVD or perhaps the brand name of the DVD player.
