Magnavox MPD845 We have a Magnavox MPD845 and have used it maybe 4 times. When we put the dvd in it plays and the sound is there but the picture is grey. I have pressed the source button but still no picture.

Some dvd players will simply not play dvd copies, or dvd's made on computers. If it's a store bought dvd that won't load, there is an item you can buy called a cd/dvd lens cleaner. This might help, and is a good item to have around anyway. Hope this helps.
Had the same type of problem; I called Magnavox on this one. These DVD players aren't "guaranteed" to be able to read discs that were "burned"/homemade. They're only "guaranteed" to play commerically produced DVDs. If you're trying to play something that you made it probably isn't going to work.
The sound you are hearing is the lens attempting to focus. Since it seems to recover, this could be an alignment problem or just a connection problem. Without seeing the waveforms of the tracking circuit, I can not say for sure. If this is a new unit, return it for warranty exchange or repair.
