Universal remotes come with a manual that will give you a list of codes for your brand TV. Most universal remotes also have a "learning" option that allows you to "cycle" through codes automatically until it works with your TV.

My Emerson won't play anything except DVD Movies, never has, wasn't suppose too. Make your movies in DVD Video format and it will read them fine (unless it's broke). I make movies all the time and play them back in mine. It reads DVD-R, DVD+R, and in duel layered. It will not read RW disks!

Man I've every problem you can imagine with DVD Players. I've found when the disk gets stuck, as long as it's not jammed. You can turn the unit off or unplug it. Plug it back in but DON'T TURN IT ON! Instead hit the eject button and the drive should open the drive without trying to read the disk.

Make sure that the DVD Disc is of the format that your DVD recorder can read. For example, if your recorder specifically requires a DVD -R type disk, it will puke on a DVD +R disk.

All jumbos are essentially the same. Mine shows no Element TV codes.

The code would be found in a compatible remote control.

Applicable codes will be in the remote control if it is compatible with your Emerson TV.

I found a way around this problem. When this happens, don't use the remote.

Walk up to the TV, then HOLD DOWN the power button and while the lights are flashing, start pushing the menu button on the TV at the SAME TIME.

Then your screen will turn on. No idea why this works. Just stumbled on it while getting ********** that this TV, I had less than a month, suddely would not come on anymore. I was about to unplug the whole thing to take back to WalMart and just started pushing button combinations and found this worked.

A regions code error means that the player is not compatible to play a DVD from a different region than what it was designed to play. For example, if you purchased your player in the U.S. or Canada then it is a region 1 player and therefore will play DVD's from region 1.

Here is a region map http://www.mvps.org/marksxp/WindowsXP/dvd/regions/regions.php

There are however, ways around this as some manufacturers of players have made a way to be able to allow the end user to unlock the software codecs that are for different regions. You will have to search for an online source that has a download or a procedure to follow to unlock your player.

Contact Emerson to inquire. This is a safety issue as the wrong hardware can result in an accident.

The file format maybe wrong check the device your using to play movies with and see what type of files it plays etc.

If the tape is that important, you need someone who is familiar with vcr's and how they work, or technician. There is no easy way to explain what must be done to get the tape out in one piece.
