Hi, I have 1 dvd that works and no others do. The one that works is maybe an older format...not sure it a bruce springsteen from 2003. All other dvd's are newer. Ever since i played bruce nothing else will play, just hear a clicking sound. I tried unplugging dvd, didn't work. Please help. Thanks Joe
Try changing the audio setting from BITSTREAM to PCM. On the remote select SETUP, AUDIO, DOLBY DIGITAL, then change the setting. Once selected turn off the DVD player without exiting the Menu. Turn back on again.

Check the TV internal fuse. If fuse is OK check the SMPS. Lightning damage could harm any part and step by step only it can be found.
If you have insurance for your TV and other appliances, you can claim.
Better contact the authorised service provider for assitance.

When I get home I'm going to crack the shell on the DVD drive inside the combo set and see if it;s a simple 'off the shelf' RICOH/PANASONIC/MATSUSHITA DVD-R drive tho. If it is, the replacement part (but not the spec. part from Zenith) from Fryes might be faster and cheaper? Not sure yet.
The Panasonic is not "region restricted". This is a security safeguard by studios to keep people from region 1 from using region 3 content. Some material is released in other countries first and later in others. This keeps other regions from using the content from other parts of the world before it is relaesed by the studio there. Your Zenith is not a region free player and the Panasonic is.
There is sometimes hacks on Videohelp.com for DVD players to be set to "region free" but not all DVD players are built with it. SONY is another non-hackable DVD player.
If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service.
