Sounds like the region codes for your player and your DVDs is different and your player doesnt want to switch. That was designed as a copy protection scheme so that pirated DVDs from china etc wouldnt be playable on most of the worlds players.

The problem perhaps caused by region hell. You can try a software "DVD Region-Free" at http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm to solve the problem.
