Question about GPX D1816 DVD Player

1 Answer

"snowy" picture We purchased a new gpxd1816 dvd player, and the picture is snowy in quality. We connected it the same way we did with our old dvd player, and the tv is fairly new. also, a separate playstation picture is fine. Is this a problem with the set up or do we need to replace the player?

I have the same dvd player and the cables are pretty cheesy so if you could try using the cables from your old dvd player and see if that makes a difference if it is not the cables i would try to return it if you still can

My BD530 player doesn't play all movies clearly. Some come cover good others re all snowy


When properly connected to a High Definition display or TV, Blu-Ray Disks (BD) should play crystal clearly. Inserting an old "non-Blu-Ray" disk (or the original "DVD") in the Blu-Ray player will display a comparatively "fuzzy" picture. This is the difference between High Definition and Standard Definition. A "BD player" can not "upgrade" the picture quality on DVDs to that of a BD or High Definition picture.

Rent, purchase or choose Blu-Ray Disks (BD) whenever a choice is offered to view the High Definition version of a movie or video. Selecting the DVD version will provide the lower quality or Standard Definition version of the same movie or video.

Check the covers or disk itself to determine if the movie or video is in DVD or BD format. That will tell you what you can expect for picture quality.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Poor viewing with VCR


how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?

Unable to get play dvd or get picture on DVD channell on tv


If the player is doing that for all DVDs but playing CDs properly, the player has gone bad due to either the laser and lens being out of whack or the DVD drive just doesn't recognise DVDs anymore and needs repaired or replaced.

Sorry. Best of luck.

Component Cable


Are you just using the yellow cable at this point, because the quality would in fact be awful? Using the green, red & blue cables (component cables) would not improve quality much, seeing as the yellow video cable has a resolution of 480i and component cables are set at 480p. Your TV (if it is in fact high definition) would either run at 720p or 1080p depending on what the manual says and what the native resolution is. I would say try and buy and upconvert DVD player and make sure to get an HDMI cable to go from the DVD player to the HDTV (some DVD players come with this cable, but you'll have to look around for them, otherwise look on buy.com or something for some cheap ones). HDMI connection and the upconvert DVD player will improve picture quality significantly.
