    i recently bought this player and i can't play anything on it, i've tried upgrading the firmware and using the setting the region code to zero.

    whenever i put anything in whether its dvd, vcd, divx, xvid it'll freeze up, sometimes it'll freeze right away other times it'll play the videos fine for about 5 minutes and then freeze up. when it freezes its looks like a tv with no receiver thats all messed up changing colors and staticy, once its frozen i wouldn't be able to press anything or even stop the video, i'd have to either unplug the dvd player or hold the power button for a good 10-15 seconds before it turns off

    if i leave it alone when its frozen with a staticy pictures and changing colors the dvd player will restart itself after about 30 seconds

    if anyone has any suggestions it would be appriciated

    thanks

    Maybe you ended up with a player that's just plain defective. Can you bring it back and exchange it?
