I relocated to Brisbane ,
DVD manufacturers are only allowed by Hollywood to let their players play DVD's from the country that the unit is purchased from. To get around this some hackers have broken into the operating systems of the player and change the system so that it will play DVD's from any countries. Nor all players have these codes, and not all players of one model number will have the same code work on them.
You can try the following steps out and they might change your unit so that it will play any DVD. It's important that you know if you do try the process and it does change the player your warranty will be voided. Here are the steps:
1. "POWER ON"
2. Open DVD tray.
3. Using the remote control, press "VOLUME^" button.
4. Press the "AUDIO" button. Region Code 2 will be displayed on TV.
5. PRESS CURSOR UP/DOWN "V" button until Region Code Number on TV screen changes to "0".
6. Press "ENTER" button to store.
7. "POWER OFF" and then "POWER ON".
I have an old Teac
I know this may sound stupid but the system is not muted, correct. I just have to ask to help in the process of elimination. There is no option inside the settings that would do this. But Make sure that the input is properly hooked up and see if it will play audio through something such as your tv. If it works on the tv but not the sound system. Then as you said the amp may be blown. but first lets test the output of the speakers. you will need a voltmeter for this and to leave the speakers plugged in but enough wire exposed to touch both positive and negative cable with the voltmeter. For a pretty close guestimate, it can be as simple as hooking a voltmeter to your speaker leads when you play your amplifier and using the formula voltage times voltage divided by impedance. For instance, if your voltmeter says 10 volts and you know your speaker to be 4 ohms then simply calculate 10 volts times 10 volts which is 100, then divide by the impedance 4.. 25watts. Please do this and let me know the outcome and we will go from there. Thanks, Midwest-tek
Can connect a ipod to pld2000
yes you can connect it

Playing a movie, the movie freezes intermittently throughout the entire movie.
Two things may be at work here...
If the pauses are the same each time then the player is possibly just switching data layers or chapters on the disc and needs a moment to seek, focus and re-synchronize. Different players may handle it differently. Both of mine pause like that for as long as 2 seconds.
If it's random and you see digital artifacts (squares, bars, frozen motion on parts of the image), the player is having some kind of problem reading the data and error concealment has failed so it needs to retry or think about it some more.
I have worked on a lot of technology in my time and whenever any external, human-handled media is involved I would alway start there. Is the disc PRISTENE? Though the standard for DVD is very robust it is not actually magic. Those bits are s-m-a-l-l so anything visible to the naked eye will be gargantuan at the scale this hardware operates in. Clean with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth wiping in radial motions, center to edge, because the data is written like an LP record in circular tracks. If you happen to make a small scratch it will be across tracks instead of parallel to them so the error correction circuitry (magic) can probably deal with it better. A bit of mild glass cleaner on the cloth to just moisten it works well. You should treat any digital medium as if it were your own high-priced eyeglasses.
If it's infrequent, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Do you want to risk damaging the machine for the sake of a few glitches? That is up to you. I'd stay out of it myself.
Sound but not picture, a black screen
you will need to change the settings of the tv to ensure that it is on the right mode. ie. av1, av2, dvd, what ever the settings you have used for your tv.
