For some reason my dvd player switches on and off continuously. I can't play my dvds and I can't leave the player on stand-by. Help?? I've tried leaving it switched off at the mains and then powering up again but it does no good.
A lot of the cheap players have under rated power supply capacitors. Being a device that is regularly left switched on the caps heat up and dry out. Often the symptom is the DVD will flick the display on and off as it is trying to power on fully and the dried out caps over load the supply thus causing it to shut down and so on.
Plug in the DVD player into a different power outlet to see if it's faulty power outlet. If the DVD player is still acting up, then it's either a faulty power supply unit or a faulty main board. Either way you'll have to get it fixed.

It won't play for one of two reasons: 1. There is something inside the DVD player, which keeps it from playing. 2. The DVD player's battery has run out of juice and can no longer play, meaning the player needs to be replaced.
this brand and model should be able to play the discs you mentioned witih no problems, unless it is defective, or a error is being made when you are recording the discs. If you are recording and they ar enot playing, most likely you are not "finalizing" the discs durring the burn processs. All discs MUST BE finalized to be played on any dvd player.
possibly check the setup of the player. some dvd's will not work in most players. check the manual. if under warranty take back to store. or better yet buy another one like it and take the one that is bad back to the store with the new receipt.
I had the same problem with my recorder except that it wouldnt play any discs at all.. I finally unplugged the recorder and left it unplugged for 16 hours. Now it is fine. I am not getting any error messages.
