Can't get the signal to my new T.V. It was working & I tried to get the sound over to the DVD from the T.v. and I chnged a setting and now I lost the signal to the T.V.
I cannot access the menu or the setup. Any Ideas on how to fix this? Maybe a trouble line phone # for Curtis?… Read Full Review

The price is good. It looks cool and it is quite versatile, but it also suffers from strong background noise. There is no off button on the remote control. The Curtis DVD5038 is a poor quality DVD home cinema system… Read Full Review

I have a Curtis DVD5038 Home Cinema system, and mine has worked very well with only one problem... The sound is a constant humming/buzzing/hissing electrical noise whenever the power is on. I am annoyed with the sound! Does everyone else have this problem? I read about some other people having the same sound issue on here, and apparently the speaker wire is too low quality someone says. I will be getting a new home audio amp anyway, and I plan to continue using my cheap Curtis DVD player until… Read Full Review

We used the system for Curtis DVD5038 five months then it stopped working. It was purchased at McRae's in Baton Rouge at Christmas time. We have been trying to find a telephone number to call about the system and have not been able to find one. We are beginning to get a little frustrated. We found this site and hoping that writing this will help us get some information… Read Full Review

For the price of a cheap CD/FM/AM mini destop system, you can get the Curtis DVD5038 which is a great home theatre system for the same price which you can play not just regular CDs, but DVDs as well with a AM/FM tuner to catch radios stations. Its just incredible what you get really ... this is real quality for the price per feature ratio ! I paid $116cdn for it… Read Full Review

The Curtis DVD5038's manual offers suggestions on how to optimize the sound and picture quality on your system, however, when you set the system up to p-scan, it automatically locks out the system. The sound still comes through, but the remote will no longer respond to anything and the player itself does not respond as well. There is no technical information as to how to correct this issue. So we now have a dvd player that has a dvd in it that will not eject, nor will the picture come through… Read Full Review

Curtis DVD 5038 is great for the price you pay.
It looks very cool and it has most features like (zoom, angle, 2.1/5.1, component out, multiregion, NTSC/PAL,...).
You can avoid most so called problem by changing setups:
- DTS sound distortion by setting
"Treble Boost" to Off
"Bass Boost" to Off
- Sound hiss, statics by
changing speaker wires to more expensive
(it would cost more than you paid for DVD5038)
keep speake wires as far from TV as possible
- connecting… Read Full Review

DVD picture quality from the Curtis DVD5038 was good when the video signal was sent through a friends' Philips Magnavox VCR to their Magnavox TV using the included composite video cable with RCA connectors. However, connecting to our older GE television through our Sharp VCR resulted in a picture that kept swinging between perfect and terrible. The shop clerk explained this was caused by a copy protection scheme designed to prevent copying DVDs to videotape. She said we could solve the problem… Read Full Review
