Time to say goodbye, finally after 8 yrs loyal and trusted service the disc player started to go wrong. Not all DVDs are affected however as a multi-regional player it has certainly lasted longer and better than other "big brand" players. (read more)

Our Pacific DVD-750 DVD player developed a strange very loud vibrating noise for the first 10-15 minutes til it has warmed up fully, ASDA happily exchanged it as it was only a couple of weeks old. Our new player was very noisy skipping around tracks & when listening to it late at night with the sound down low the motors etc seemed noisy, but it was very cheap & you do tend to get what you pay for. Picture quality was fine, sound quality not so nice as it made everyone shout, even when they... (read more)

I bought the Pacific DVD player in 2002 in ASDA and it plays most things, but there are a few discs it will not play at all. Recently I purchased a legitimate box set of Joss Wheldon's FIREFLY TV series, of which I am an enormous fan, and it quite simply will not play it. This is most disappointing as by now the device is well out of guarantee and I cannot get a refund. I would strongly advise against purchasing one of these because you never know, a few years down the line, you might... (read more)

I bought the pacific 750 at en ebay auction last year in december. It doesn't not play vcds or svcds and can't find some songs on my mp3. Is there any update which i could download? Because in germany there`s no asda. Or should i send an email to the manufacturers? I hope you could help me. Thanx

I have had the Pacific dvd750 for 5 months, in that time it has played everything vcd,svcd,MP3,DVD,DVD-R,DVD-RW with no problems. Even with 45p DVD-R there appears to be no glitch from DV Camera via MYDVD software to the pacific. This player has few faults and these are accepted with the cheap price. (read more)

I purchased a Pacific dvd player model DVD750 in January of this year. Upon taking it home we tested it and found it to be working ok but not wanting to watch a dvd at that moment left it for a while. When we returned to it we found that not only would it not play but it would not even turn on!Yet my dvd was still inside it! We returned it the following day and were assured that this was an isolated problem so collected a replacment. This one lasted approximatley 6 weeks before succumbing to... (read more)

I read other reviews on this page and decided to buy the Pacific 750 from Asda on 11/9/02, realising I could activate the Multi-region. This prove to be a piece of cake.
After a couple of tries I managed to boot a cheap dvd-r Movie backup and it runs smoothly. The only thing is when I change chapters, the player can't seem to handle this and crashes. This only happens on the backup though. Originals work a peach. This has to get 10 stars if only purely for the excellent, no-fuss 3 yr... (read more)

We're having intermittent problems with audio on DVD playback. Normally, audio quality is fine but we experience a problem where the sound mutes to an unrecognisable mush for no apparent reason. Happens on every DVD we've tried to play - thought I'd 'fixed' it yesterday by switching off Dolby and resorting to surroundsound only but five minutes later (and on the same scene) the audio was terrible again!
Anyone got a clue how to sort this?

Unfortunately in February this year Schneider saw fit to remove the Macro Hack from the Pacific DVD750 DVD Player, following this they also removed the VCD Playing facility.

I first bought this Pacific dvd-750 DVD player in April 2002. Thought it was fab at the time because it played home-burnt VCDs and SVCDs, but after 2 months I noticed it skipping more and more on many discs, which made me take it back. A new one (still the 750) proved that the VCD function had been disabled - apparently because of copyright issues (!!!) There are still some 750's out there which will play VCDs (the Scheider model available at the moment is similar) so snap one up quickly if... (read more)

After reading the reviews on the pacific 750 DVD player, I bought one. I was impressed with it until I tried to play a VCD disc. Some reviews gave the impression that it could play this type of disc. When I looked through the instruction manual it tells you about advance play back with VCD. On the front cover of the manual there is an additional sticker telling me the VCD option is disabled on this equipment. Shouldn't that sticker be on the box I ask. (read more)
