    Our battery died. After we got it jumped we had to reset the anti-theft protection password for the Radio system. Since the dead battery problem, the DVD player won't work. The display simply says DVD " Loading " . It won't accept any new DVDs and there are none in the player at this time. Any thoughts on what is going on and how to fix this

    Our battery died in our Van, so I went to Honda and bought a new one. Now my DVD player won't play or accept a DVD into the slot. Any suggestions?

    My wife and I own a 2006 Odyssey minivan. We have the Touring version with the GPS and DVD entertainment system. Around the time we had taken the van to the dealer for a routine oil change in Q2 2007 we observed the same problem others have described - the DVD player was stuck 'loading' when there was no disc in the machine. I have no idea what caused the problem initially - the unit worked perfectly since purchasing the van in June of 2006 with no intermittant odd behavior. One of first things I tried to do to 'reset' the unit was to remove the fuse to see if cutting the power to the unit would reset the unit and fix the problem. It did not help - the problem remained. Months went by, and a recent (Feb 2009) Google search brought me to FixYa.com. I tried the recommended physical battery disconnect solution recommended on the FixYa site, and it worked exactly as described. Problem solved, so hat's off for the tip. I will add that leaving the power off until it becomes necessary to re-enter the radio code seems to be the key step I was missing. My own attempt at disconnecting power was much shorter in duration and only required re-entering the code for the GPS unit. Since the problem originally occurred sometime last year, I have had to jump-start the car a number of times because little hands have turned on the rear ceiling lights and drained the battery overnight, and I invariably have had to re-enter the GPS code each time - but never the radio code. Getting to the point where the radio code needed to be re-entered appeared to make all the difference. Thanks again. - Scott, Washington, DC

    I had this exact problem. Battery died, got the battery jumped, then DVD read "dvd loading" and wouldn't work. Took the 2006 Odyssey to our local honda dealer I told them exactly what happened. They looked at it and said they could not fix it, but that it would have to be sent off to be repaired for $599.00. Who has that kind of money right now, not us. So we researched and found this website. We followed the instructions left the battery undone for 1 hour and it worked immediately after putting code. Thank you so much to this website and to whoever posted the solution to this problem.

The radio fuse is in the fuse box on the driver side not the passenger side. Look for 10A (Red) on the bottom row.

I was able to do the same by pulling the radio fuse under the dash. I kept it out for over an hour. After reinserting it the DVD went through a reset cycle and I entered the code for the radio. Worked like a charm.

My wife and I had the same problem with our 2006 Odyssey. The physical battery disconnect for one hour necessitated the radio to be reset via its security code. This eliminated the false 'loading' error message. Unit works fine now. (For additional detail on our problem, see the post I placed on 2/27/09)

I had exactly the same problem, and I found a solution on the web - unplug the positive end of the battery and let it sit for 1 hour, then reconnect it. Worked like a charm for me. Remember to connect both connectors to the positive end (there is a smaller connector on top of the big one), otherwise it complains the TPMS not working and the entertainment unit's LCD will not work. Good luck!

you could take the DVD system down and check for power to the back of the player. if there is power then you will need a new player. if no power then check the wires/connections.

ECO light on at low speeds


Yes, that is completely normal.   The cylinder deactivation feature is designed to activate based on a combination of throttle position, and engine load.  It really has nothing to do with the speed of the vehicle.

2007 honda odyssey dvd will not work or eject


We ran into this problem with our 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L and followed Joed202902's instructions.

I'd recommend that you disconnect the battery terminals and let car sit for at least 45-60 mins. I tried it after 10-15 mins and it was not successful. After waiting 45-60 mins, reconnected the battery and DVD ejected no problem.

Dvd player not working on 06 Honda Odyssey


The Honda dealer just wanted to replace my entertainment center without even troubleshooting and I wasn't convinced that it was "broken" so I found the FIXYA website and saw that others had the same problem and I followed their instructions and it now works fine. I am going to call the Honda dealer to complain because they should have known this.

We simply pulled the fuse out and put it back in and then reset the radio code!
