Hi everyone! I’m new here and like most people found you when I had a problem that no one could help me with. I bought a new copy of Wild Hogs (from WalMart) and it wouldn’t load on my Akai 3Way Combination - TV, DVD player, VHS player. I telephoned Touchstone at the 800 number on the DVD and they tried to help me. They brought up a copy of the remote control for my set and had me try different things (like hitting the Clear button at a particular time and hitting the play movie button). They suggested that I unplug the unit for an hour or two to give the DVD player a chance to “clear” or “reset”. When that didn’t work I called Akai only to find out that the unit was really made by Samsung. Called Samsung and they determined they could not tell me why the DVD couldn’t be read.
OK - I bought a second Wild Hogs DVD - call me crazy if you want to. The second one wouldln’t load either. Both of the DVDs look like standard DVDs - black plastic containers, not Blu-ray. I have a large DVD collection and have tried several other DVDs since this weird thing happened. They all play just as they always have.
I am reluctant to scrap my TV combination until I have exhausted every resource trying to get to the bottom of this. From reading several of the posts on this forum I decided there was a wealth of knowledge here and hope that I have given enough background information so my particular strange thing can be resolved. Thanks for reading.
