GO VIDEO VR2940

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.

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.

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.

Mine wont play anything a DVD it recorded it wont let me finalize


Today with HD High Definition TV these kind of problems appears because the new dvd players have more video resolution options, so, for playing all variety of dvd, and home done dvs,s (like family movies on dvd) you need set up your resolution video on your DVD player at 480i or 480p option, not higher because some DVD movies (mainly oldies) have lower resolution than newer , for example new movies on HD format have 1080 P resolution, and if you have this option chosen in your DVD player you only can see this kind of videos, on the other hand if you have chosen 480i or 480 p on your dvd player , you can play all dvd formats including home movies made with any movie software, in this way you can play dvd-r and +r movies and of cours you can play HD movies also. So put some dvd where your dvd player works well (you need see the dvd menu in the tv screen), then press stop. Then press setup in your remote control, go to video resolution and choose 480 I or 480p, then press ok AND ENJOY THE MOVIE.
