Many commercial films are written to what's known as dual-layer DVD discs, which are like two DVDs sandwiched together. Movie studios try to pack as much cool stuff as they can onto a DVD, so by the time you add movie trailers, documentaries, and other special features, the amount of space necessary far exceeds the 4.7GB capacity of a regular DVD disc. Using a dual-layer disc expands the capacity to 9.4GB, which is enough to hold the movie and many extras, depending on how long the film is. What you seem to be experiencing is a problem related to the DVD player changing layers (when it must adjust the focus of the laser to read the second layer of the disc), which is usually indicated by a brief pause during playback. In the early days of DVD, many players had difficulty during the layer change, which could cause the DVD player to lock up during playback. In other cases, a badly formatted or damaged disc could be the culprit, so you should check the condition of the DVDs that are giving you problems. Since you mentioned that sometimes they work, your problem could stem from a scratch or a fingerprint. But, if the condition of the DVD is flawless, you may have to consider getting your DVD player repaired, replaced, or exchanged (since you mentioned it was new). Since it is a portable DVD player, you may want to try running the DVD player when it is plugged into an AC receptacle. This will at least rule out any relationship to the battery, though a remote possibility. But, portable devices do strange things when its battery is low.

I need an unlock region code for my Zenith DVD2200 player


After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to
try here or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

Just a thought.

DVD pauses in the middle of the movie


who ever told you that well... doesnt know dvd players very much no mater what wene ever you watch a movie or anything there is no data transfer back to the cd it is a one way process unless you were burning the dvd which you would not be able to watch it at that time. as for the pausing thing take a soft cloth and clean the cd then get a can of compressed air and blow it into the slots to make sure that it is clean inside the machine. if that does not work then your problem is with the dvd. does it do it with other dvd's or just that one?

WHAT DOSE E7 ERROR CODE MEANS


Don't know what that code means but....
On my DVD-LV50, I was able to re-initialize and fix a different error (error code H05). It might work for you, too.

With no disk in the player, press and hold these buttons for 4 seconds:
  1. Back skip -- [ |<< ]
  2. Pause -- [ || ]
  3. Play -- [ > ]
The screen will go blank, then say "Initialized."

After that, it worked like new.

I hope that helps.

Bad disk


The Laser Optic has gone bad. A simple fix if you can find the correct part for a Technician.

I replaced thousands working for Sony fixing DVD's and PlayStations.

Static from multiple DVD's


I know what happened.

Your son was watching a porn flick and decided to pause the dvd when he saw a hot scene.

He was trying to **** off (but couldn't) and left it on pause too long, eventually burning out the unit.
