    The unit has worked fine for over a year. A month or so ago I got an error message that said "check your region code." Now I have two commercial videos from Netflix and both of them are producing the same problem as described - the display says "reading," then changes to "error" and ejects the disks.

    Same problem. Worked fine for a few years, suddenly won't play any DVDs. VCR works - only DVD player problem. Worked one day, and stopped the next. Any ideas?

Take it back to the store if its new or if you bought a warranty and trade it for a new one. If not try calling an electronic store and ask them if they know whats wrongs with it. Be sure to read the instruction manuel for a support phone number and call there too.

Try buying a Laser Lens Cleaner Disc from Wal-Mart, FYE music store, or any other place that might sell DVD players. Your Laser Lens that reads the DVD'S is full of dust. Try using the laser lens cleaner disc i mentioned to clean the laser lens.

I have a sharp dv-rw260h. I put a DVD in to check what was on it and the machine won't stop 'reading'it. Cannot get machine to do any other function whilst it is 'reading and cannot find a manual dvd...

Turned machine off at the mains for about 15 minutes. When I turned it back on, it started 'reading' again but then a message came on screen saying that it was checking the said that the procedure would take about 15 minutes but stuck on 'five minutes left'. Tried the eject button again after about 2 hours and the drawer opened. Checking message still showed so I turned the machine off and on again and everything was fine.
