I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the player.
What kind of TV and HT system do you have?
I have my samsung dvd player connected to my tv. When i turn my tv on and my dvd player, the dvd player keeps loading up dvd player then my tv will go straight to the dvd theater. I use to be able to turn my tv on and then my dvd player to turn the sound on without it automatically going straight to the dvd function. What can i do to stop this
