Apologies if this has been asked before.....have done a search but to no avail. I bought this machine about 18 months ago from Sevenoaks, paying the extra for the multi region option. Have only recently bought a couple of second hand dvd's, one US and one Brazilian sourced. Both these discs won't play properly, and show the same symptoms ie. sound fine but picture split into 3 horizontally and all flickery......totally unwatchable. Have tried both in the PS2 and same result. Are these symptoms the same as trying to play the wrong region discs in a single region player? Have Sevenoaks sold me a pup? A mate took the U.S disc and played it on his computer DVD/ROM fine. Can anyone shed any light for me before I make a complete plonker of myself with Sevenoaks?!!
