Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Hi I read an answer about unlocking a DVD player HCT 501U to make it regional free. Something makes me think there is something more. The answered was to a guy who bought the dvd player in USA and tried to watch european dvd's. Conclusion was that this dvd player cannot be unlocked because it is locked at hardware level. However, i bought it in USA and I started using it with european dvd, and it is working well. Now that I tried to use it with US dvd's it says "wrong code". Is this compatible



Answers :

The "Lock" is firmware not hardware and controlled by the software, (the flag number of the control line from the Disc) situated within the uProcessor in the DVD/CD Player.

I bought a 40 inch Westinghouse led TV. It keeps going back to set up mode. when I am watching something and I try to turn up the volume the TV goes back to set up mode (doest always happen... i would say every three times i do, it does) where I have to scroll down to "connect a game, Blu-Ray, DVD or other player then select my input". its very frustrating.

I bought a LC DVD 199A in November for a Christmas present. Until today, I have not tried to used the DVD player because I haven't really had a chance. I put the source mode to DVD but the DVD won't load, I did press lightly, the DVD went in only part way and I removed it. Why won't it load? Also, it goes from DVD mode to TV mode in a matter of seconds which is frustrating as well. What can I do. Of course it is out of warranty. Help? Patty

Hello, I just bought the KDL55EX720 LCD TV a few days ago. I originally hooked a DVD player up to it with the standard AV cords & it worked great. Lastnight I purchased a Blue Ray player and hooked it up with an HDMI cable. When I go to input it shows the HDMI connection, but when I select that connection the screen goes dark as if the TV is off so that I cannot go through the setup process with the Blue Ray player. I reset to the factory settings, but having the same problem. I have also tried

Hello, I have a CyberHome 300 dvd player. The unit was brand new and playing dvds perfectly.

I've tried ejecting and powering off/unpluging the unit several times and all I get now is the "Bad Disc" message. Even with regular dvds. Not sure what to do now.... It's like the lenses or opti

After watching for about 10 to 20 minutes the tv does something weird like your'e pressing the input button. It keeps switching from tv to vidio or whatever else happens when you press the input button. When the screen keeps switching like that it just goes back and forth so your picture keeps coming on for a second and then back off. If you try to press the input button to fix it nothing happens. You just have to turn off your tv. It has its own dvd player on the bottom. I'm wondering if that
