DVD Player won't read

The DVD player won't read the DVD's. It started a while ago just not reading some and reading others. Now it won't read any & probably just needs the laser cleaned. I just would like to know which screws to remove to get at the inside chassis.

    Could you please go into a little more detail about encoding for the right region? Most of the DVDs are coming from Netflix.

    My DVD player has not worked since I bought it! I'm wondering if it even has a real DVD player inside. If anyone has advice on getting DVDs to play please let me know.

    My Aiwa VX-F20DV1u combo worked fine at first (appx year 2000) then I started playing home burned DVDs and it would play these and stopped playing manufacturer original discs (blockbuster rentals) and now won't read any disc at all.

    My Sharp DVRW 360H has recently stopped recording.As soon as you press the recording button then it starts and then almost emmediately stops and starts loading up.Or it will seem to record for housrs and hours and then you find out afterwards that it has not recorded anything at all.I have tried cleaning it with a DVD lense cleaner quite a few times with no luck.Can you shed some light on this?

I have to disagree with the previous answer you got. It's a common scenario that someone uses his DVD player to play CD's and then the point is lost. DVD players DO get plagued with dusty lenses, same as any other disc player. If you can get to the lens its worth a try, but from your post it seems that you should take it to a pro lab. I say this because you'll have to open the TV chasis to get there, and TV's are just about the most dangerous home appliance to mess with. Touch the wrong spot, even when plugged out, and you can get bit by enough voltages to kill. Take care and good luck

It is very rare to have any problems related to dirty lenses, on DVD players. This is because the rotational speed of the disc is so high compared to CD, that a significant drag wind builds up under the disc, which keeps the lens blown clean of dust deposits. Your laser might be defective though. Also, make sure that the DVDs are encoded for the right region.

Can anyone give a response that let's the person actually open and try to fix it. Not just tell them not to and to take it to get repaired... If they wanted to do that, they wouldn't have written on here

There is something that you can do safely and it'll cost you just a few dollars, just go to any electronic store(Kmart, circuit city, office depot, best buy etc.) and buy a dvd laser lens cleaner and that might solve your problem. This way you don't have to open the TV chassis.

You didn't say whether the unit was shutting down. Usually when there is a fault in the VCR the TV shuts down to protect the unit. Your unit has a fault in the tape system. It has a bad sensor or something in it which is triggering a fault. Sometimes kids put things in the slot and cause this kind of problem. Using a flashlight look into the slot and see if there is an obstruction. If there is try to get it out. If you are capable and understand TV safety, unplug the set and remove the back to look for any foreign objects in the set. If there are no foreign objects you will probably have to have the set looked at by a shop if you want the VCR to work. If you have composite video and audio inputs on the unit you can hook up an external DVD player with an RCA patch cable. Hook the same colors together on each unit. Yellow for video, red and white for audio. You will have to select the input through the menu. Good luck.

The dvd player will not read the disc


If it won't read any disc you put in, consider getting a new DVD player, the eye is most likely gone bad. If it is only one disc that you can't read i would suggest a Scotch DVD Cleaner kit. Cleans and Repairs discs, helps prevent skipping and mistracking, and repairs minor surface scratches improving disc audio and image quality.

Hello; There are many laws and rules controlling what you can watch on all DVD players, built into a TV or separate player. If you go buy an MGM or other dvd of some movie at Walmart , Best Buy ETC it should play in your DVD player, But if You or somebody " Burned a DVD" , It Likely won't play. If The DVD is an original store copy and still won't play, the DVD chassis must be replaced. BIG BUCKS. Just buy a Cheap DVD player and plug into the jacks on the back of the TV and save a TON of money. John
