I need to dezone my Toshiba SD-V392 !!!!

You can't dezone it.

This is why they put zones in the units. Blame the record and movie companies.

99% of dvd players cannot be dezoned. Do a search on the net for a dvd player that can be dezoned and go buy it.

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs

Unfortunately your DVD drive mechanism looks to have bit the big one.

You can try taking it apart, removing the top of the drive and cleaning the lense. Work it up and down. Use a q-tip with a little squirt of windex on it.

Reassemble and try it again. If you get the same results, it's time for a new DVD player.

Press the setup button. Go to the audio tab and set the subtitles to off.

Sometimes, a unit will get stuck. After doing the step above, put a movie in and wait for the menu. Use the DVD menu to go to audio and select the subtitle option to off.

In both cases, if the option already shows it is off, then turn it on. Exit and go back into the menu and turn it off again.

Need to make my dvd player multi region

This is not a Toshiba problem.

Most DVD players have region codes. If you play a DVD from your region 5 times, it will permantly set the code.

Blame the movie and record companies.

Even most computer DVD drives have region codes.

It's unlikely the sales person was educated enough in this topic to even know what a region code is.

Here's something else to consider. If the DVD you want to view is from England, they use PAL not NTSC, so it's unlikely you could view it on your TV anyway.

Get your son to copy the file from the DVD onto a USB FlashRAM drive, then mail it to you. They don't have region codes. Now you can view it on your computer, and make your own North American region DVD. Also, you could always have him e-mail the video to you, then burn it yourself.

There audio but no picture

I don't know how you connect the unit to the tv.
Let's just start on basic:
composite video/audio(yellow-video, white/red-audio) connect to TV composite video/audio input behind the TV.
If the audio works but no picture,try to use another video input behind the tv.if that still doesn't work,use a different video cable!
Good luck!

Sansui VCR/DVD player combo. A Platinum Plus model

It moves cause its trying to read the disk.

the two main causes of this is that
1.) the disc isnt spinning fast enough 5000rpm is required for it to work

2.) the lens is damaged

in eighter case you'll need to replace parts..
you can take it into a technician if you like of you can try to fix it our self

if it aint spinning fast enough you have to change the motor

if the motor is fine then its the lens, try cleaning it and if that dont work replace it.

I'd recommend you get a new player cause the parts required is a bit hard to find, and it cost with the technicians labour almost as much as a new one

MY SIGGESTION is its disposable

Closed Captioning

Turn your DVD player on with no disc inside. Use your remote and press the Setup button. From there go to audio and there should be some settings for closed captioning.

Movie Freezing

Sounds like youe unit is getting tired my freind. they dont make em like they used to. The unit most likly needs a tracking or focus servo alighnment, but to put it on a bench, and have a tech adjust the alighnments, will most likly exceed the cost of a new unit. The laser could also be getting weak, and the replacement optical assemblies for this unit alone cost about 60 bucks. Then you have labor and alighnment cost, as you don't just throw in an optical pickup assembly and it works. Good Luck Please, do not forget to rate this thread.

Unable to play back

Shouldn't matter what the OS (operating system) is. What you need to do is to make sure you convert the movie to proper format which would allow you to view on DVD player after burning. Usually you need a seperate software. Your DVD player should say what formats are compatible. Usually listed on unit or in manual. Avi is a great format but when you burned it to DVD your computer probably created a Data Disk. Which would make it unreadable by DVD player. Check to make sure you are able to convert to format that's readable by your player.Good Luck
