Curtis Home Theatre System

 

Anonymous
 
Purchased a cheap Curtis system with DVD. Set it up and had it working, all speakers and DVD. Then I was playing around in SETUP and changed the video output from S-Video to the Y PR PB setting. Now I cannot again enter SETUP to correct and therefore cannot see the DVD's. Is there anyway to get back into the SETUP menus?

HELP! I just got the Curtis DVD home theatre system ... the L and R surround speakers are working (did the Pink Noise test) but there's only white noise when I play a DVD. Am I missing something in the audio set up? I've gone through it several times. ugh!

I bought a Curtis 5036 DVD + home theatre system last year (Dec 28, 03) from Loblaws. The unit ran beautuifully for slightly over a year, but suddenly, it has refused to read discs. I even cleaned the lens with a cleaner, but still the message I get is '"Loading disc" for several seconds, and then "no disc" after that. I use my player very gently and keep it covered from dust in a cabinet. I also keep all my DVDs and CDs very clean. Could you pls troubleshoot the problem and advise as I don't want to throw this away and buy another one of some other brand. I have referred Curtis to several friends, but now I am feeling dissatisfied myself.

The Remote for my DVD 1056A got drenched, and I haven't found a universal that works either. I'm going to email their customer service right after I post this, a replacement will probably be expensive, but it does get annoying having to watch movies with subtitles, and having to stand there hitting stop then play until it decides to get past the menu.

CURTIS DVD PLAYER IS A HOAX:

I purchased a Curtis DVD player that came with a surround sound sysytem and thought i was getting the buy of my life. I was wrong.This system was working fine for me for about 3 months, Now only one speaker works.(I took good care of it too) The speakers wont workand on the occasion when they do they're fuzzy. You know what i think of Curtis, now suite yourself when you buy a surround sound package.

I have that same problem where my screen is blank. I was playing a DVD and the color was off. In trying to fix that, I think I pressed 'TV mode' or something. I'm glad I found this forum...but I'm afraid that I'll never get it back after pressing every single button last night to get the screen back! If anyone can help...please do!!

I bought a DVD 5038 in Nov 2003,, Just opened the box(it was a gift for grandchild & forgot I had it), hooked it up and the DVD/CD player won't open ... I have tried everything but prying it open(don't want to do that).. Does anyone have any suggestions...

I just purchased a Curtis Surround Sound System, hooked it up and it did work. Started setting all the buttons and hit the AUX 1 button. Cannot reset the system now to reprogram. All we get now is the AUX 1 screen
 

Unregistered guest
I've had a DVD5038 now for just over a year and the darn player keeps hesitating when playing dvd's. Audio CD's are fine, but the DVD's are just horrendous. The loader/player is a Shinwa SHD-2502 and I was wondering if anyone knows of a replacement that can be used in this unit; preferrably one that is reasonably priced. Curtis wants $35Cdn for a replacement reader, but it's the same model, so I'm not sure I want to fork out the money on something that's just going to die again in 15 months.

Left and Right speakers dont work, sub woofer doesnt work, was just working, dont think anything changed. LS RS and center work. double checked connection and used the test in the menu, switched speakers that are working to the Left but no test tone during test after that either.. Any have a clue how to get my speakers working again? sound setup is set to 5.1 if I set it to stereo then no sound at all
 

UHMM UHH!!

ANYONE WITH A CURTIS SYSTEM AS YOU READ ABOVE REALIZE IT'S A PIECE OF GARBAGE!
DON'T BOTHER TO TRY AND FIX IT! THROW IT AWAY AND GET SOMETHING WITH A BRAND NAME!

yOU ARE ALL ASKING THE SAME QUESTIONS WITH NO ANSWERS BECAUSE THERE ARE NONE!
IF YOU GET IT GOING IT WILL BREAK, SO GO GET SOMETHING ELSE!

IF YOU READ ALL THE ABOVE POSTS THERE IS NO OTHER CONCLUSION THEN IT'S NOT GOOD AND
IT WON'T LAST AND IT WILL BREAK! DON'T NEED ANY TECHNICAL ADVICE TO FIGURE THAT OUT!

uhmm uhh...I have a daewoo player with the same shinwa 2502 loader/player, and it's shot as well, and of course I'd like to fix it. Is my player junk too, or is it worth fixing?


Hmmm? (:+)

Curtis should be ashamed of themselves this unit is &^(&*^&&&^$% and that aint no lie.

I have tried to reset the screen using the blind setup right arrow 3x and down then enter... nothing -
I wonder how many times I will blindly, feeling like a fool press setup right arrow 3x and then down arrow, I'll tell ya this if I had any other way to hook up my xbox sound right now (wich is only working in a few speakers) I would throw this unit in the closest garbage can and thats to good for it. I should ship it to curtis with &^%$ you note on it.

ARGGGG! This player is a piece of crap. It has NEVER worked for me, but how lucky am I... I bought it on sale so no returns/exchanges. Ever since I took it out of the box it refuses to play DVD's. I mean it plays them, but it skips every 2 seconds! I rented Troy and it actually refused to play about ten scenes right in the center of the movie! Audio CD's are fine, but this just plain SUCKS.

I have a curtis dvd player and it has worked fine for a year and a half, actually, i've loved it more than my parents' one. It plays everything and it's been the best. Except now, out of the blue the remote won't work and there is no universal one to replace it because curtis dvd players have no code for universals. anyone know how to contact the company?

For those with the curtis dvd 5038 that got messed up. Iwas in the same boat. Itried the posted fix but it didn't work. I just kept pushing the arrow buttons (all of em) and the enter button in no particular order and bam I got back in. I was using the RCA outputs but hooked up the Svideo cable to get things going. One thing you might try that SHOULD work is this:
1. remove dvd and shut off
2.wait about 10 seconds and power up again
3. press setup, right arrow 3 times,down arrow 5 times, enter, enter.(yes press enter twice, not a typo) This resets to factory settings. If that doesn't work shut off and repeat except instead of 5 times down try 6. Good luck and let me know how ya make out.

I have the same problem as Whitney but I was able to find a universal remote but only works partially, meaning functions of the buttons are all over and was not designated in the remote as such. I would like to go to the setup but that can only be done thru the remote (how stupid can that be, I want change the output to Progressive but I can't do it ). Anyways the Universal is Jensen, code is 0664.

one of my freinds was messing around with my dvd5038 theater system and they were in the setup menu and messed with the tv mode and pushed p-scan wich means progressive scan and now all i get is a blue screen i need to know how to put it back on the right mode wich is interlace but i cant see what im doing i need step by step

I had a DVD6040 model and during DVD play it would start pausing on frames for 3 to 10 seconds and then it would jump frames ahead and start playing again, and it would do it randomly for the duration of the movie.

I eventually even-exchanged it for another DVD6040 and it has the same problem! The hotter it gets the worse it becomes, at its hottest point it will just not play DVDs.

Same problem, both units, right out of the box.

I don't want to exchange it for another DVD6040 because I don't trust it after having two with the same problems, nor do I want store credit to put $200 more into a store I don't like, The Brick.

It's been 10 months for DVD6040 #2, yes I know, and the fight for my money back will draw blood.
 

Unregistered guest
ok first of all you should get it right if your here to post !! for the unit dvd5038 here are the steps to fix the video problem (this works ive tried it over and over so you wont mess up
1. turn system off wait ten seconds
2. Turn system back on wait about 5 seconds
3. press setup button once
4. press right arrow three times slowly
5. press the down button 6 times slowly
6. press the enter button two times slowly
Enjoy your movies again :D any questions message me Coreyla_pointe@hotmail.com

Hello All,
Yes I'm a victim as well.I recently purchased a Curtis DVD1020 which was enclosed in a DVD1150 box.I didn't realize it until later on when I tried playing PAL formatted dvds it also will not
play vcds or svcds.The only reason I bought this player is that it's suppose to play karaoke dvds.
I got this player from a Value City Store which is some sort of reseller.They buy closed-out and discontinued items.Curtis is definitely not a top runner!This particular player was manufactured in 2001! I got it dirt cheap also.
Sorry for the long post but does anyone own a 1020 that has a similar problem or a solution to this tragedy.

Have DVD 5038 mine has worked very well with only one problem: the sound is a constant humming/buzzing/hissing electrical noise when ever the power is on. I am annoyed with the sound! Does everyone else have this problem? I read some other people having the same sound issue on http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews8634.html and apparently the speaker wire is too low quality someone says. I will be getting a new home audio amp anyways and plan to continue using my cheap Curtis DVD player until it dies (currently 2 years old and never had a problem). I actually like this DVD player if the sound was better. It allows me to skip intro menus on DVD and go straight to the main menu. Good support for MP3, MPEG movies, CDR, DVD+R

This is a shady company their product is basically a piece of junk. It might end up even damaging your other equipment.

since many of you are frustrated with the quality of the product and the company's indifference please take a minute and file a complaint with the BBB. I was amazed to see that there was only one complaint filed with the BBB and so many complaints online.

here is the link to the BBB curtis page

This SYstem is sooooo dumb... My dad purchased a Curtis DVD 5028... ANd only 3 speakers work... Actually only 2, the left, Right, and the Subwoofer...

Usually I tell my dad to let me go shopping with him, when he goes to buy stuff, But he was doing X-mas shopping, so I let him go.

As soon as I saw the system, and saw the name Curtis, I was thinking WTF. I asked him how much it cost. He said it was a great deal (really I would have told him he was actually getting ripped off).

So I was praying that this particular system would work, but It didn't.

IF you see a Curtis System... DONT BUY IT PEOPLE. Save up and get a SONY or a more respectable name in the industry. CURTIS is a Joke.

My parents got me a DVD5028 surround sound, and my roomates and I really enjoy it, unlike some of you other people I think Curtis is a low cost brand...but you know what they say, You get what you pay for!! the only complaint I have is that there is not any control over the Bass and Treble from the satellites. But other than that, for the price my parents paid I am not complaining.

Ivvy Poison,

Model DVD5029 comes preset from the factory with Dolby Digital 5.1 turned off. Default settings are stereo. (2 channel Playback)

In order to activate all speakers in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround,

In the Setup menu,
Navigate to downmix mode and select 5.1 as the value.

Let me know if this solves your problem

Hello,

In response to your request for assistance concerning your DVD5028 Problem.
You mentioned that your unit died after playing only 1 CD track.

Does it playback DVD's or does playback any type of disk?

Curtis Models DVD5028 and DVD5029 both come from the factory with the surround turned off.
This means that only the two front channels and the sub will work (2.1)out of the box.

In order to activate full surround (Dolby Digital 5.1)

Enter the setup mode,
Go to the audio downmix mode and select 5.1

This will enable full surround DVD playback from all 6 speakers.

If the door does not stay closed, the main unit is defective.

The tray must arrive at certain point inside which enables a limit switch which tells the CPU the tray has arrived to it's home position

Pls send me an email and we will be glad to help you out.

I just hooked up the DVD5041 system and so far it's ok. Nice sound quality for the price but it could be better on the volume though,a little lacking for 150w. Anyway if anyone has changed the video output from s-video to YUB as I did you can cut through the hassle of pressing setup/enter if your remote has the P-SCAN button. Remove disk, turn off unit for 10 sec. , power on unit, press P-SCAN. As I said I have the 5041 unit and this worked for me. I tried the above suggestions but none worked so I called Curtis Int. at 1-800-968-9853 there was a long wait on hold but THE GUY FIXED MY PROBLEM ON THE FIRST SHOT.

Now my only problem is connecting my satellite box through the system. If anyone can offer suggestions please do. Post here or my e-mail is bbn2g@yahoo.com. Thank you in advance.

I have a curtis dvd5041 and I can't get the rear surround speakers to work. They make noise when I do a pink test but no sound when playing movies. Any ideas what I can do?

I think the fix for the video output is simple and listed below.

First I want to say I purchased a Cheapo Curtis DVD1093 at WalMart and it is impressive. . It has a USB port and supports DIVX/XVID. It plays more DIVX variants than my dedicated media player did and I have played DIVX videos at resolutions up to 576 x 1024 at 16x9 . My only complaint with the unit is the remote , which is typical of most newer DVDs these days. The truth is I cracked this unit open and the processor board on it is a Sanyo

As for the reset on nearly any DVD player first connect a COMPOSITE monitor to the composite output, as the composite output most always continues to be composite regardless of what you change on component or HDMI settings. Once connected to composite on a composite monitor , if you do not have an image there is often a button on the remote that says P/N or PAL/NTSC. ONce you have a composite image you can then set up the component or HDMI to the mode you want.

From what I have seen no matter what DVD the Composite output will always function. On curtis DVDs. You only need to verify PAL/NTSC according to the Monitor connected. (even new flat panel displays can use a composite input on the green colored cable, although it will display as monochome, so connect the yellow composite video out of the DVD to the Green Component connector if your flatt panel does not have composite input) Most Curtis DVDs have a P/N button on the remote this selects PAL or NTSC. From there you need only select the desired output format.


BTW this is normal for most DVDs so stop whining about it.
