SOURCE: Portable DVD player .disc error unit spins but says says no disk

Likely to be a classic laser failure. It will require technical person to replace it - try starting with the point of sale and see about warranty etc

SOURCE: I need a region free code for my Insignia NS-BRDVD

This worked for my NS-BRDVD2-CA, basically the same model as yours.
1. Turn on the player.
2. Press the home/setup button and release. Enter 9-1-1-3 on the number pad.
3. "Configure player" appears in the wheel menu to the left of the screen. Using the up or down arrow button on your remote, navigate to it and press enter.
4. Three menus appear on a blue screen in the centre of the set: DVD Region, BD Region, and BD Profile. Select the one you want and press enter.
5. A grey screen appears in the centre showing the various regions. Navigate to the one you want and press enter.
6. Exit the grey menu by pressing the left arrow key, then press it again to exit the blue menu. The screen will appear as it did in step 3 before you pressed enter.
7. Open the drawer and put in your foreign disc. Wait a little bit. When it's ready, the disc's main menu appears. Play it like you would any disc.
8. Voilà! Consider yourself fortunate: You're now able to play foreign DVDs and Blu-rays on your cheap North American player.

P.S. Remember that you have to do this every time you want to play a foreign DVD, because when it's shut off the player automatically defaults to Region 1 for DVDs and Region A for Blu-rays (i.e. North America for DVD and the Americas for Blu-ray). The "configure player" menu disappears sometimes, too; to see it again, simply re-perform the "home/setup, 9-1-1-3" hack.

My player in Japan works fine with Japanese region 2 dvds but crashes with UK region 2 dvds (it used to work when I first got it.. Any ideas? or shall I just buy a new one?


If you mean to play DVD’s that you may have purchased in another country the see below

For that you need to do a Google for "mymodel region free" or "region free hack"

Not all DVD players are capable of this often very simple modification that many manufacturers build into DVD player. (Usually just involves the remote control and a combination of keys)

Your search will turn up a lot of sharks that want money for the hack (fix)

IGNORE THEM

There are a lot of sites where the information is free.

If after opening up the region free parameter you still have issues and you still want to play your dvd's from around the world you might want to consider another one

I am STILL (lauren) unsure of FIXYA's policy on this topic and am awaiting further clarification on the issue with regards to handing out these codes as this is not HACKING in the same sense as pirate software etc. it is just enabling an extra feature that the manufacturer provided.
I would prefer not to get my @ss kicked. That is why I can only give you the search terms rather than site links or specific information

No valid disc message displayed. Disc is spinning.


When a DVD player starts doing that, it either needs to be cleaned, or something is going wrong with the DVD mechanism inside of it. You can purchase DVD lens cleaner from any large retail store that has an electronics section. However, if you clean it and the problem persists, it will likely be cheaper to replace the unit rather than trying to have it repaired unless you're under warranty in which case any repair or exchange will be covered by said warranty. If you call the manufacturer they will give you your full range of options.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

My dvd player will not hold a charge so I thought it might need a new battery. Where can I get one?


The only store I found that sold this at some point was Walmart. I went to the Walmart.com site where I found warranty information for this manufactuer and model # (see below for warranty details). Now here's the problem:
The website and phone number for the manufacturer no longer exist. I tried the website first and it linked me to some other website. I tried to call the number provided and an operator came on claiming something about an international directory ... At this point, I'm not sure what Walmart could do, if that is indeed where the system was purchased from. You may be out of luck on this one. Let me know what you find out

Toshiba DVD player


Hey Mueller8400,

If you purchased a Toshiba HD-DVD player from your local Best Buy™ store before February 23rd, 2008, you may be eligible to receive a $50.00 Best Buy™ gift card. Many of our customers should have already received notification of this offer and their gift cards, but if you have not yet received anything in the mail I would strongly suggest contacting us directly for further assistance. You can reach a Consumer Relations agent by calling our toll-free hotline at 888-Best-Buy (888-237-8289), and requesting to speak with an agent regarding a store policy question.

Please keep in mind however, that not all DVD players are eligible for this offer. Combination HD-DVD/Blu-ray players, computers with HD-DVD ROM drives, and upconvert DVD players do not qualify as eligible products at this time.

I would also suggest making sure that you have the receipt or order confirmation page from your purchase handy when you contact Consumer Relations, as your order number or Customer Service PIN number will be necessary to ensure that you qualify.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Stops playing


If the warranty is already expired, and you have some spare time, VERY carefully, remove the screws on your player and look for dust. This could be causing overheating. Also, if it freezes, try feeling for hot spots. A blown fuse could be causing this and you may be throwing away a 2 dollar fix. If this does not help, bring it to your nearest technical assistance provider and tell them your situation.

My daughter's DVD player is not working. Not sure of brand but has CSIR in kryptic type writing, purchased duty free.


Did you try the laser. If the laser is misaligned it will not pick up the necessary information. It could be a case that this might even be broken, if so return it to where you purchased and ask for a replacement. I say this because this was the problem I had recently.
