Re: Playing DVD'S

I note that this a question about a disc that has successfully played once already! Which indicates that the disc player is ok.
Here is the method I have successfully applied many times.
Wash the disc in warm soapy water then rinse in running cold water.
Dry it gently with an absorbent lint-free cloth or teatowel.
(Always hold the disc only by its edges)
Then carefully inspect the disc surface under a good light. If you see any fingerpirnts or smears these can be removed with just a dab of methylated spirits on another piece of lint free cloth. Make sure it is good methylated spirits...not used and not the variety which is coloured purple or pink!
Finally, wipe the disc clean with piece of lint free cloth.
Now try and play the disc. If it does not work then it is either a poorly copied disc or has been damaged in some way.
When you get this sort of failure happen...make sure to play another dvd or cd straight away...not the disc you just played...this will confirm whether the player itself has an intermittent fault or not.

Never use abrasive materials on discs or the lens on the player.
Use a good "Wet type" cleaning disc to clean the lens.These are available from any Audio/tv retail shop or the "2 dollar shops."

Happy cleaning!

My daughter has been playing with the remote control on her Technika tv/DVD combo and now it will only play dvd's in black and white can anyone please help x

Hi, First check that the colour is set to about half way and that you can actually adjust it. Then check the colour system when playing a dvd, set it to PAL or NTSC or whatever the DVD recommends or in the menu. Is it still black n white when you watch just the Television programs?

Rca lcd tv with bulit in dvd have no sund only when dvd playing can it be fix

If you have sound when playing a dvd on the built in unit, problem is not likely anything bad in set.

Look to see if speakers set to off or some setting in the menu or audio menu, if using a box for signal it can cause this, set does not know if you are playing DVD or watching tv.

We have a 23" Toshiba with a internal DVD player.

No,tv internal DVD player are not on sale by itself as a seperate unit,only can buy it from the tv corporations themselves and it not cheap and have to have experience to putting it in into the tv internal tv itself.The tv internal DVD player now,could be the laser eye data reader have problems reading mp3 and mp4 files on the DVD disc,which are video files.Now tries to play more than one DVD movies dic,tries like to play like 5 to 6 original DVD movies.One disc don't play tries another DVD disc.Tries this might forcing the laser eye reader to read DVD dics again and than might fix it to read video files again.Or just buy an external DVD player hook it up to the tv and play DVD disc on to the tv video modes.DVD players external devices are really cheap these day,like can buy new one for $40.

DVD player isn't loading and playing properly

Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.

DVD player keeps skipping and gets very blocky looking and then sometimes it just stops I tried cleaning both the lenses of the dvd player with dvd lens cleaner disc and cleaning the dvds nothing seems too...

It sounds like the problem is with the DVD's you've been playing. I've gotten those problems before, but not on every DVD. How many different ones did you try playing?
