Question about Emerson SpongeBob SquarePants TV

1 Answer

Dvd ALWAYS skips!

I bought this tv last christmas and it worked fine... for about a day! After that it has a problem with every dvd we put in, new or old. There will be no scratches at all on it and the tv wont read it. I have tried a disk cleaner, more ventilation to cool the tv down and everything else we can think to do. Please help if you have had this prob. I dont know what else we can do, so any help is great! thanks!

    We have the exact same problem! Old and new dvd's just keep skipping. Also, sometimes it will not work at all, the dvd just spinns around and never starts. Frustrating!

It may well be the lens of the DVD player, your best bet is to buy a CD lens cleaning kit and play that through the DVD player.

Remote control not working


If the new remote is not working either, it sounds as if the problem relates to the sensor on the TV combo.

If you bought it new last Xmas you should have some warranty left. I would get it looked at asap before the warranty expires.

I BOUGHT A SAMSUNG 27" TV LAST CHRISTMAS IT WAS WORKING FINE UNTIL YESTERDAY. NOW IT SHUTS OFF BY ITSELF AND CANNOT BE TURNED BACK ON. I DO NOT HAVE THE RECEIPT AS MY GRANDCHILDREN BOUGHT IT FOR ME...


Remove the wall plug and count to 10, then plug it back in. If it still doesn't work ask your grandchildren to help you with a 'Warranty Repair'.

The warranty is 12 months.

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD


Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck

Disney dvd player parental control code


I'm sure you've found the solution by now, but I'm going to post a response for people in the future with the same problem. The unlock code for dvd's is found on page 25 in my users guide. I dont know if the code is different for every t.v. but mine is 1369. Hope this helps. Also I thought it was kinda funny because the same exact thing happened to my daughter with the same Barbie Island Princess movie the day after Christmas!

Tv wont play dvd's anymore


Disney = Made in China.... Probably full of lead paint, too!! J/K.. Seriously, though... The laser is worn out and will need replaced, but it is unlikely that you will be able to find a new one, since its a generic Chinese import thats been rebranded. Time for a new one.
