Not likly by the user and the cost to repair, you could buy two of these units. These units are good for the Digital to Analog converter (D-A) IC's to go bad and thats what this sounds like.

Why does my Seiki DVD player say incompatible region?

It's possible that the DVD you are trying to play was manufactured for a different region than the one your DVD player is set to. DVD players are designed to play DVDs that are encoded for a specific region or regions. For example, a DVD player that is set to Region 1 will only play DVDs that are encoded for Region 1.
You can check the region code of your DVD player by looking at the back of the player or consulting the user manual. You can also check the region code of the DVD you are trying to play by looking at the back of the DVD case or consulting the information that came with the DVD.
If the region code of your DVD player does not match the region code of the DVD you are trying to play, you will see an error message like the one you described. One solution is to try setting your DVD player to a different region and trying to play the DVD again. However, keep in mind that most DVD players can only be set to a particular region a limited number of times, and once the limit has been reached, the region code can no longer be changed.
It's also worth noting that some DVDs are encoded for multiple regions and will play on any DVD player, regardless of the region code. If you have a DVD that is encoded for multiple regions and it is not playing on your DVD player, there may be another issue at play.

Portable DVD palyer

Getting a signal from a DVD is a very complicated process, involving bouncing a laser beam off of the DVD, digital electronics, microcomputers, & sophisticated programming. In this tangle of signals & programming, it is not uncommon for a glitch to prevent the player from performing correctly. There is nothing wrong with your player, per se, except that it glitches on those particular discs. The solution is to simply not play those discs on that player. This phenomenon has happened with every optical storage device since the very first laser disc player. Some players simply don't like some discs. You can try a lens cleaner disc, but it is unlikely to make any difference. This problem is just an aspect of the technology, & is not going to get any worse.

How do I play DVD on the BlueRay player?

According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.

I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.

MODEL NUMBER: VBR231

*Model Features:
* Full HD 1080p Video Playback
* Integrated Dual Band Wi-Fi - 802.11n
* 7.1 Digital Audio Output
* Backwards Compatible (see below)

*Compatibility:
* Plays Blu-ray and DVDs, Audio CDs, MP3s and Jpegs
* Multi-Channel 7.1 Audio Output via HDMI
* Playback and Enjoy Media via back USB Input (JPEGs and MP3s)

*Outputs:
* HDMI 1.3
* Component Video (YCrCB)
* Composite Video
* Stereo Audio
* Coaxial Audio
* Optical Digital Audio

I hope that helps somewhat.

No sound when playing dvds

This is very likely a codec problem. A codec is a software component used with video and audio players that translates the electronic media file into something that can be displayed. Most of the time, the video codec will be out of date and you'll hear the audio but not see any video. You've got the reverse problem, obviously.

Unfortunately, Microsoft does not make this easy. Even the latest download of codecs from Microsoft doesn't necessarily update the Windows Media Player to play any DVD. You will need to do a codec search and download the latest. Last time I checked, 'download.com' had them available (this is CNet's download website). Good luck!

No picture, only sounds when playing DVD

Hi,

The issue might be that you could be missing some codes to play the dvds.

First i want to uninstall all the codecs from the control panel - add/remove programs.

Then download the latest vesion of klite codec pack with the player.

The link is :

http://ftp.freenet.de/pub/filepilot/windows/multimedia/video/k-lite_codec_pack/klcodec390f.exe

Install this by selecting "lots of stuff" with the player.

Then play your DVD, it will work fine.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

New DVD from Australia will not play

Hi patjune333,

Welcome to the wonderful and stifling world of DVD region coding! This is a 'security and protection' implementation that has been around for awhile, though most folks have had the luxury of remaining blissfully unaware of it.

See, there are (last I knew) six different region codes in the world. Based on the way that the DVDs are coded (as well as DVD players), discs made in particular regions will only play in particular DVD players. So if you've got a DVD from Australia, which is Region 4, and you're trying to play it in the States or Canada, which is Region 1, this is most likely not going to work. Movies are released on the big screen across the globe at different times, and this is one of the main reasons for the region coding.

Many DVD players (at least PC ones) will give you an option of which region code you wish to use if you try to play a disc from a different region; however, this is not always the case. There are also 'region-free' software programs out there that might alleviate your problem, but I'm not sure about the legality of them. Bear in mind that the Region Coding generally interfaces with the physical firmware on the DVD player so if you use a new player to play a Region 4 DVD you might not be able to play any DVDs from North America.

Here we go - check out this link for detailed info on region coding.

Hope that helps!
