My girlfriends DVD player simply will not play some new DVD movies we rent at Block Buster. We recently rented a new release and the screen remained blue - DVD movie would not play - went back to another BLockbuster and rented the same movie, but his time I had them put it in there player to verify that the DVD movie was ok. It played with not problem. Got back home, and same intitial blue screen - did not play. Needless to say, we grabbed a DVD movie she owned, at they all played with no problems.
What gives? Is there some new format that is being used that this DVD player cannot read? The movie was a Sony manufactured movie.
Any suggestions/information? Do we need to get a new DVD player? The player is only about two years old.

I found out this tv/dvd will not play certain movies that are rented from netflix is that their dvd have a restricted thing, and this tv will not read the movies that are on certain disks. It plays movies good that I rented here in town. So theres nothing really wrong with the player itself. I did some reading and this is what I assummed.
Go to blockbuster and tell them they rented you an encrypted copy which indicates it's fake. explain EVERYTHING you did to avoid a charge/fine. the last person to rent it probably screwed it up somehow.
OK. The movie industry strikes again! Your RENTED DVDs are the key.Hollywood made some adjustments to prevent the copying of the movies. So they put software to detect the kind of drives in which the movies are inserted. DVD/RW are capable of copying a movie, so they are disqualified as playing devices. Have it be a normal DVD player you won't be facing any troubles.
If the rented DVD is too scratched it will cause the DVD player to pause while it tries and find the next available playable area on the disc. This may cause the player to skip to another part of the movie. Try wiping the disc with a damp cloth from the centre towards the outer rim and dry the same way. Fingerprints ect. also cause problems. If the scratches are circular the player will have a hard time trying to play the disc. If the scratches are straight and small it shouldn't cause too much problems.
I have a Sanyo Dvd/vhs player and I recentlty went to dish network instead of cable and I do not know how to get the player to work now so I can watch movies that I have rented. Can you tell me how to use the remote to watch movies.
