When playing rental DVD's the unit will play the FBI warning and previews up to the point where you opt to play the movie, additional sceens etc. Then, nothing. Just blank screen. No all DVD's just hit or miss.
When returned to video store the play fine on their machine?

    Just the store DVD's. And not all. Just some. And they are all from the local Blockbuster store. Don't know if its one particular movie company or not. Never took notice. i.e. we just rented "Rambo". It reads the disc up to the pause for PLAY MOVIE, ACTORS COMMENTS, ADDITIONAL SCEENS, etc. When you push PLAY the screen fades out, and then nothing.

Hello davecad,

is this on all dvds you play even none store dvd's or just the store one,s only ?

this could be a region code or laser miss reading the disc.

My dbpower portable dvd player won't play my dvd I rented.


Try playing a dvd you own that has no visible scratches. If it plays fine then your rental dvd may be bad. If let the movie store know they should give a free rental. I would use a cleaning dvd to clean your player just in case.

The wall mount blurry player will play movies (Benjamin. Button) but will not advance from the FBI warning for The Good Wife, tv series rental. Help


If other discs are playing fine it is best to give the benefit of doubt to the player and not to worry more as this can be a damaged disc, a pirated disc or one with a region lock.Some times certain players will not play as the tracks can have errors due to damage and so the processor will protect.

I have a dvd set. The first disc in the set plays fine. When i try to play the second disc, it gets to the FBI warning and stops. Any suggestions?


FBI warning on disks are normal and is part of content on dvd, this has nothing to do with the fact that it stops playing (just coincidence) there might be a defect on the disc or scratches

Blu-ray movies will play the previews but lock up before the main feature.


When was the last time you completed a firmware/software update? It sounds as if one needs to be completed. If the firmware is the most current and you have been advised that with it you should be able to view this movie in particular, then it could be the disc. If it is a rental disc it could be warped or missing some information. Lastly it could be the DVD drive itself, which would cost more that a new unit to repair if not in warranty.

DVD Player Problems


Me three, same thing, reads 'no disc' or just won't play it. I have found that it happens more frequently on rental DVD's and that running a cleaner cd through several times helps but eventually that will even stop working. No idea what the problem is
