My player rejects DVD's all the time,sometimes the display shows disc error sometimes the player just rejects them outright, these are mostly hire DVD'S. When it does accept them there are nearly always big jumps while watching ,very annoying. I'd be grateful for any advice Thanks

Re: Player Rejects Disc

What is hire dvds? dvd players use a lazer and lenses to focus on the disk information sometimes they have problems reading the disk for many reasons. Somtimes they can be damaged by movement or transporting them from a friends bouncing in a car or dust or prints on the disk even scratches. If you know the disks are clean and scratch free then you can try using a can of air blow it into any vents in the top or into the slot when the tray is out blow into the slot. Another thing could be heat, is the machine welll ventelated? its not under a pile of blankets or at the bottom of a rack where it cant keep cool? one more thing is to powercycle the unit. Unplug it for a few days then plug it in fresh and try the disks again. Electronics are small computers and somtimes they need a reboot. Electronics can use lots of power and it can spike the electricity in the home causing voltage drops these drops can glitch the computer inside so it doesnt work right. Remove the unit from where it is. Let it sit a few days unplugged from the power. blow it out with some can air then hook it back up with some good ventelation and see how it works.

DVD player not working!

The player uses a laser to check for a DVD. If the laser fails, the player acts like there is no DVD loaded and opens the disc tray so a DVD can be inserted. Sounds like a bad laser.

Sony BDP-BX2 Blu-Ray player now rejects valid discs as "invalid"

Sometimes the latest update IS the problem, not the solution. If possible go back to an earlier version and retry the disks. Many of the answers here about power down and the like are all good and sometimes helpful things to do. They also point to the fact there isn't much a consumer can do to fix or repair malfunctioning DVD/Blu-Ray players and it always comes down to cost. Do you want to repair or replace. You've had your unit, you say, about 3 years? I think this is about end of life. Anyway, try the previous software version and if that works turn automatic update off.

DVD player will play store bought dvd's but will say unknown disc when I insert one from Netflix.

Is it possible that this is a Blu-Ray disc from Netflix? If so, It may not be able to be read on a standard DVD player.
Another possible reason for this is that the disc is somehow damaged and thus unreadable.
I'm afraid without seeing the disc I am unable to help you further.
Either way, might be time to complain to Netflix:

Will not record on blank dvd and rejects some saying disc error

In the past, when that occurred to me, I either had the wrong type of DVD disc or it called for a unused DVD disc to be put in. Be sure you are not using a CD disc.
