    Has anyone else had problems playing Disney DVDs in a Lecson DVD 1000? We
    have a copy of Snow White that shows this problem and always assumed that it
    was the DVD since other films seemed to play fine. This week we borrowed a
    copy of Sleeping Beauty from the local library and it shows exactly the same

    The DVD loads and starts up and then runs through the ads., copyright etc.
    right up to the point where I would expect the film to start. Then the DVD
    player gets a bit manic (you can hear the disk spinning franticly) and the
    player either returns the other root menu or exits back to the player
    startup screen.

    It _is_ possible to play the film by using "Next" to skip chapters until I
    get to the correct place but try explaining that to the babysitter and the
    very disapointed daughter when you get home. And I've already returned the
    DVD once because of this although it's not clear to me what they did since
    nobody bothered to actually let me show them what was wrong!

    Anyway, anyone else seen similar problems?

    Well, I've got the lecson 900 and I had problems with Toy Story Australian
    boxset. I rang up Debenhams and they sent out a firmware upgrade disc and
    that seemed to fix the problem. Saying that, my Matrix stopped working after
    about an hour into the film. It works if you manually go past the scene
    where it locked up. Funny thing is, the Matrix worked fine before the
    firmware upgrade and also plays fine on my PC dvd rom.

    I'm assuming you've also bought your Lecson 1000 from Debenhams... it's
    worth giving them a ring or ring up the help desk on your warranty booklet
    and they might be able to sort you out. If you're desperate for the film,
    the problem may only be associated with that region's disc on your player so
    it may be worth buying the dvd from another region (assuming your dvd player
    is multi region).
