Sounds like the unit is bad, or set to the wrong Regional Code. Its not easy to set the regional code and it varies by model. You are better off buying a new DVD player given they can be found for under $30.

I put in a dvd, it starts to read it, and in a couple of seconds it ejects


Hello; There are many laws and rules controlling what you can watch on all DVD players, built into a TV or separate player. If you go buy an MGM or other dvd of some movie at Walmart , Best Buy ETC it should play in your DVD player, But if You or somebody " Burned a DVD" , It Likely won't play. If The DVD is an original store copy and still won't play, the DVD chassis must be replaced. BIG BUCKS. Just buy a Cheap DVD player and plug into the jacks on the back of the TV and save a TON of money. John

1. How do I watch the same movie on both screens on the Philips PET9422 37 9 in. Dual screen DVD players? 2. I bought a refurbished model but did not get a user's manual. How do I get one?


hi,
You can do the following to watch the same moving in both the screen.
1.Connect the AV out of both the unit together. with supplied av cord

2. If you want to watch the movie played on the first unit then put the DVD/AV IN switch of first monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of second one to AV IN.Now you can watch the movie played on the first monitor on both monitors.

3. IF you want to watch movie played on the second unit then put DVD/AV IN switch of second monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of the first monitor to AV IN. Now you can watch the movie played on the second monitor on both monitors.

I have the manual of the same . As it is large pdf file can't sent through fixya. If you can sent your email id through fixya will sent you the manual
ok

Sony tv will play copies of movies from tv, but won't play store bought new ones. I mean current popular ones. It played Avatar last week but won't now. We tried several new movies and none will play. Put...


There is some confusion in the explanation here.

The TV does not play movies it displays them It is the DVD that Plays them. But of course you knew that. Some of the newer movies like avatarcan be on Blu ray if your DVD is supposed to play Blu ray but doesn't don't be surprised as they have changed the format recently. Your DVD will require an udate of firmnware. Go to the website of the DVD brand and contact support Download the update and burn it to a disc and run it.

With the TV end Make sure the resolution can be accepted from the DVD you are trying to Play. If it isn't HD or capable of 1024x768 at 16.4 then it may not be able to display the image. Is there any sound?

If sound but no Pic then start playing with the picture format. go to 8.2 or 4,0 to see if it makes any difference

My mother-in-law has a Polaroid HDTV woth built-in


I can help you with your Polaroid HDTV.

If the DVD doesn't start when you place it in the player, look for the Play button on the remote control. There may be a TV/DVD switch on the remote that would need to be changed to DVD.

If the manual below doesn't match your TV, please post the model number of your Polaroid HDTV/DVD combo for more specific help.

I hope that helps.

DVD player wont work


Firstly check the region code matches with the dvd code.
Check your manual in the front will be a list of dvd`s the dvd can`t play.has the disc been finalised.

One thing could be ,has the dvd recorder been into a cold environment, or not been used for the first time.
Take the dvd recorder into a warm room connect to the mails and leave for 2 hours , if that was the problem it should work.

Dust , for this open the dvd tray and blow to remove dust in that area of the dvd recorder.

My Polaroid 32" Flat Screen HDTV/DVD won't play DVD's


Your lens inside your player could be dusty or dirty.
Open up the dvd drawer and blow real hard in there.
Wait about 30 sec and try again.
This should fix your problem.

You can also purchase a can of airduster at circuit city, walmart, any office store should have it.

I hope this fixes the problem. If it doesn't, the lens might have to be adjusted by a repairman.
