Re: DVD Player not working

I just purchased a dvd hd player phillips dvp5960/37 I also own a 37 inch panasonic tv. I can see normal movies ok and sound is good but when I put an HD movie in I get nothing but spinning. This happened with another dvd player that I bought and I figured it was a problem with the DVD player so I bought a different one which is the phillips. Does anyone have a clue as to why I cannot play an HD movie on this thing. I also have a bell satellite dish and it plays the television HD channels fine. ???? im confused!!!

Re: DVD Player not working

I too am having a simliar problem with my DVC880D. Were you able to resolve? $35 to just have a local repair look at it, and that's not including parts. For that price, I'm half way to a newer unit (and anything other than a SYLVANIA).

Re: DVD Player not working

Have you tried to power cycle the unit? These units have small computers in them and from time to time need a power cycle. Un plug it and let it sit over night then try it again. Some times a simple reset can cure its ilness. It may also have a timming problem with the door. WHen it was open did it get bumped? it could be off track and thing its open when its actualy closed because it has a timming problem. Try a power cycle first.

Re: DVD Player not working

Your problem is the small switch that a small boss hits when the doors closed to tell the unit the door is closed.. Its eather the small boss is broken from the door or the switch blades cracked. If you feel comfortable to open small electronics you may be able to open and see if it is the tiny switch BUT highly NOT recomended as there are micro fine wires and ribbon cables inside this unit that can be easaly broken.Best thing to do is to take or send this unit to an authorized repair shop.

I had the same issue. it is not recognizing the disc. I called in and I am having to send it in for servicing. The message you are getting is because the only option you are getting is the BD data one and not the one to play the disc.

SOURCE: A Sony RDR-GX210 DVD player I can play a CD -

Hi Allan,

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

In your case the lens does not work on DVD , but only on CDs for the reasons above , that is quite common.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

How to repair dvd player v zon says wrong disc

Hi Vzon DVD Player,
Before you fix anything, you need to troubleshoot the problem first to know what needs fixing. Since DVD players can play different kind of media formats like Audio CD, VCD, mp3, etc, please try the following
1. Turn on the DVD player and set the program to DVD. some player needs to be setup due to multiple functionality (can play mp3 on flash drive, etc..)
2. insert different Media CD as mentioned above if your player will play them. (if they play, try to insert the DVD you want to play)
3. Try different DVD disc
4. If all the above don't work, try to clean the laser head using the standard disc cleaner.
5. retry the DVD disc
6. If the player still don't play your DVD, probable issue would be the laser head or the disc motor.
7. Please bring them to you nearest Electronic repair shop for further assessment.

Good luck and thanks!

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :

usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

Will Not Play CD-Rs Part Deux

Checked specs- YES -supposed to play MP3's. Did you try other MP3 Audio disks in the DVD? You can try the MP3 disk in your computer to make sure it is OK. If it plays in the computer, have to suspect a problem with the DVD unit - probably the converter IC.
