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 Full Review

Written on: 12/02/2006 by A Holyoak (13 reviews written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 11/04/2005 by Clark Gwent (1 review written)

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 suddenly… Read Full Review

We got one last year and seems to work OK but insisted on being connected to scart 1 rather than scart 2. Plays VCD, MP3 OK but won't show jpegs. Anyone got any ideas on how to get it to show pictures rather than just video?

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 Full Review

I'm happy with the Pacific dvd-750 DVD player. I have seen other people have mixed reviews. My multi-region has allowed me to purchase dvds that ain't even out in the UK yet!

I have had no probs with VCD's I have aquired some from Hong Kong and they play fine. It maybe that you have bought them as VCD's and they are not maybe they have a different format and are only compatible with PC's for and example. The only thing I haven't tried is to play MP3....not to sure how that works yet.

We've tried the macro hack open tray key 4561, this should show macrovision enable/disable then close tray but it didn't work for us. We also had a different multi region hack code 8421 and this worked fine. If anyone knows of any other macro hack for this player please email me. :-)

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 Full Review

Written on: 12/09/2002 by Neil. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

I bought this Pacific dvd-750 approximately 1 week ago - 1st dvd player I have owned. I was very pleased except I decided I should have vcd option so decided to get another model which would play them. Took it back to Asda. Toured the local stores & bought Alba 108 £69.99 -Argos...returned, very noisy drive, poor sound, fair picture.
(played vcd with Hack), Next bought Apex AD1100wb - Asda (Good old Asda) £69.80. Touted as mp3 kodac picture cd jpeg readable - store info said cdrom soon… Read Full Review

The Pacific dvd-750 DVD player is supposed to play vcd's but the 2 I've had from Asda didn't. The guy in the shop assured me they should. They are due new stock this week. Will the problem be fixed?

Written on: 30/08/2002

I also have the Pacific DVD 750 from Asda. It plays VCDs without any problems - this was the reason that I bought it as my older Matsui simply refused to play ball. Are you sure that you are encoding your VCDs correctly when you write them - and have you tried them on other DVD players?
<br>
<br>Apart from that the 750 is brilliant value for money. True, the drawer mechanism is a little slow - as are other functions. But when it's playing both the picture (particularly through the component video outputs - how many budget decks have that?) and the digi sound are terrific. At this price range I think it's virtually unbeatable, so I can't understand the rating given in this review.

I bought one of these a couple of months ago from Asda, and it is clearly stated on the packaging that it plays VCD's... but it definately doesn't.

<br>I will be taking this up with Asda, whom I have heard supply a firmware update to re-enable the VCD function.

I bought a Pacific DV-750 in November of this year as xmas pressie for the eldest. Set it up boxing day and guess what it didn't play vcd's.
This was my first buy of this model. I bought one in Feb last year and that one works fine.

Written on: 31/10/2002

The Manual for the DVD-750 clearly states that it will play MPEG1 and 2 formats. A VCD is MPEG1 format and so we are within our rights to expect it to play them. I am taking mine back to Asda for a refund or to swap for the cheaper model mentioned above.

“Help! ”

Written on: 12/08/2002 by Steve. (1 review written)

Help!
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?
