    Hi. I'm trying to play a NEW DVD on my Sony SLV-D281P DVD Player. It takes me to the menu screen every time no problem, but when I push play nothing happens. It plays other DVDs no problem. Definitely not a scratch issue as I previously mentioned NEW Disk. First time trying to watch it, right out of package.

    Hi parisflower21, and welcome to TSG.

    Are you able to play that particular new disc on another DVD player or on a computer with a DVD drive and software that can play DVDs?

    Are you referring to the DVD player's built-in menu screen or the particular DVD's home screen?

    Playing it on another device would assist in determining if the problem is a manufacturing defect in the disc or a problem with your particular player. What is the title of the disc?

    Does the region code of the DVD match the region code of your DVD player? Let us know the results of trying the disc on another device.

    EDIT: If the disc is part of a box set do all of the discs in the set exhibit the same problem?
