Wrong Regional Disc.
DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.
Wrong Regional Disc
DVDs have region codes to prevent black-market selling of them and
whatnot. Where did you buy the DVD? Where did you buy your DVD player?
I don't think so.
What if you moved to another country? What if you decided to take your
player on your yacht and sit out in international waters watching DVDs?
Try deregioning the hardware. Get the make and model number and enter
it with "de-region" or "DVD region hack" into google. You may find
instructions for de-regioning the player. It usually consists of taking
any discs out, restarting the machine and then entering a number code
that allows you to set the region to "0". Most of the cheaper,
Chinese-made DVD players have a work-around like this. Post the model
and maybe I can find it for you.
I have a Audiovox d1988 and the screen won't play. I have sound but no picture. Help!!!
First thing I would do is try a different DVD to see if the problem persists. Otherwise, this device is equipped with integrated speakers, meaning it is unlikely that you will be able to replace them. You may be in the market for a new Audiovox, unfortunately; but before you scrap it I suggest taking it to a local electronic repair store near you.
Hope this helps,
