Subject: Tech: DVD asking fo non-existent password
From: McGrath of Harlow

My DVD (a Philips DVP5980) has decided that I have to enter a password before I play a particular DVD - the second disc in part one of the Lord of the Rings. The trouble is, I never set any password

My assumption was that somehow I must have accidentally set some parental lock thing - but then I found that it's only on this DVD that it asks for a password. Other DVDs are fine. At least all the ones I've tried it with are.

I've tried unplugging the DVD to reboot the machine, but that doesn't make any difference.

Any suggestions as to what the problem is, and how I can sort it out?

Problem solved - I found an online user manual, and there was a default password included which enabled me to unlock the disc. It turned out I had accidentally put a lock on the disc.

Good job, Kevin,

My kids have accidentally "protected" programs on the DVR; I did put in a password to protect a few of my programs so they wouldn't tape over them. Make sure you write your password down someplace where it can be found easily if no one actually ever wants to use it, just so they can get past it if they do the same thing!

Our resident tech trouble-shooter has been in and out of wifi spots and his tech books are in storage. John In Kansas sold his house, has been trying to close on another, and has been in campground limbo in the motor home for a few months. This is a direct result of the economic downturn. We wish John and Lin well and into that new house sooner rather than later! (I just don't want to be around when they start unpacking those storage lockers. Fibber McGee is their patron saint!)

SRS
