I have a Panasonic SC-HT80. I purchased it on 6/23/00. I use it for DVD play about 4 to 10 times a month. Last year it occasionally displayed " No PLAY" when I attempted to play new release movies. Now it will not play any new release movies. It will play the Special Effects DVD ( Disc Two ) included with the new release movie. It will also play my old DVD's. I have contacted Panasonic Customer Call Center. They suggest taking the unit to a service center. I have read about other SC-HT50 owners having the same problem. If anyone has a solution or a suggestion for solving this problem I would be very grateful if you would respond. Thank You. It just (5/1/04) played the new DVD " Big Fish ", could it be the parental software control on the new DVD's preventing the unit from playing the newer DVD's?
