Emerson EWC13D4 My DVD player won't work anymore. It won't stay closed and when it did, it wouldn't play the DVD. It just kept making a sound like it was working, but wouldn't play the DVD.

Re: Emerson EWC13D4

Pauses a couple of seconds, and then pops back out? I had a reverse case - wouldn't stay OUT. If the end of travel sensing fails to operate, the motor remains powered. If the motor remains powered with no movement, anti-jam protection reverses it. The sensors may be optical break or contact, depending on the drive, and probably just dirty - or maybe a dry/broken solder joint. I actually cleared it on my old 2x CD-ROM (long time ago) by blowing very hard into the underside edges of the tray - where the sensor is likely to be.

No, you are stuck and a universal likely will not have key functions you want.

The DVD player reads disc error with every disc, even if the discs are cleaned.

If the DVD player is displaying disc error with all the discs, most probably it is a service issue..
Please use a cleaning disc and check if that helps.

It stays on for 15-20 seconds then turns off

the tv is shorting out. means its probably old and needs to be replaced. if its not very old its just got a faulty part. get ahold of manufacturer emerson technical service and they will tell you your options.

High pitched sound

Sounds like you have a coil or transformer that needs resoldered. Possibly in the hi voltage circuit but sounds more like a transformer in the switch mode power supply...

Need code for ewc13d4 tv/dvd for direct tv remote

Direct (and Dish) may not have codes available for all brands and models; I know that from personal experience.
You need to got to Direct TV's website to obtain a current list of codes. Even if they have some for Emerson, they may be quite limited in their usefulness.
