First let me explain, that I know absoutly nothing about dvd players or how they work. My questions will diffently make this statement very clear. I purchased a progressive scan sony dvd player, the problem that I am having is that it will not play all dvd's. Once you place a disc in the palyer it will either work or flicker between the picture and a blue screen. Now I do have the dvd player connected from the vcr to the tv. If I unplug it and try to run the dvd player directly through the tv nothing happens. Same way when I tried connecting it through the satillite receiver. Any help would be greatly appreciated, also the dvd player is less than 2 months old. Please feel free to email with any advice at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!!!
