When I put in any DVD Disc, you can hear the disc spin. I opened the unit and put a disc in and could see it spin and you can see the laser light come on to try and read the disc. After about 10 sec or...


Is this a blueray player? If it is, the disc you put in probably isn't formatted to the blueray. If it is a standard dvd player there is probably something wrong with the player. You have two options. One, to take it in for service or two, to get another dvd player. If you have another dvd player in your home, try the disc you can't play from the one player and put it into the working player. If that works, then something is wrong with the dvd player you are having issues with.

This a combo vcr, dvd unit. Dvd disks have stop loading. When i put one in there is a rumbling noise and a message appears that the playback feature on this disk in not available.


If this is happening on all DVDs it sounds as if the motor for the DVDs drive has gone out or is malfunctioning (the little rubber belt for the drive may have slipped or broken, or the motor may not be spinning up properly). this can be repaired at an electronics repair shop. But it may be more cost effective to buy a new one. I have found the DVD VCR combos to not be as reliable as the stand alone units.

I have the magnavox blue-ray nb500mg1f for not even a year. Its not playing anything anymore blu-ray or dvd. Keeps saying (disc read error, playback feature may not be available for this disc)


whit all optical drive units disc read errors are caused by one of three things: a damaged or dirty disc, a damaged or dirty laser/optical eye, or a defective drive motor not spinning the disc at the correct speed. since it is less than a year i would recommend contacting the manufacturer and request a repair. it should be free but it wil take a few weeks to be completed.

I was wondering if you could help us with our DVD recorder. Its a Toshiba DVD Recorder Model: D-R18DTKB and up until recently has been in good working order. A while back I bought some Sony+RW...


Hi Tony
Although I am a member of this site I came across your post while searching Google for answers to the same issues as you are having.
From what you say and what I have tried I can only put fault with the DVD recorder itself and probably the LASER.
This thing just seems to hate reading recorded media of almost any format including those which it's stickered front panel boasts about. It also doesn't leave you with many other options as there is no USB port either.
I dont use the unit to record or the Freeview facility and never have as we have Sky+ and no TV ariel.
I bought it for the varied formats of video it says it can play but out of 6 different formats that I recorded onto DVD with my PC (and I am an advanced user and work in I.T) it only played back one and badly which was a mpeg-1.
I put the same 6 disks into my sons (apparantly DVD only) player bought from ASDA for £15 and it played 4 of them perfectly as good as the originals!
Logically this would suggest this model is a Lemon. I just hope your not a £130 light lemon as I am!

Dvd player wont play


I found this on the PROSCAN website under customer support manuals.The website is www.oncorpus.com.I hope this information helps you with your problem. IMPORTANT THE LABEL SIDE OF THE DVD MUST FACE THE BACK SIDE OF THE TELEVISION 1. Press the ‘INPUT’ button to select ‘DVD’ mode, if no disc is inserted yet, the display shows ‘No Disc’.
2.Insert a DVD with the printed side facing towards the rear of the TV/DVD Player (see below)
3.The TV will first display ‘Loading’, then change to ‘DVD-video’. Most DVDs will show some preliminary
information then stop at a main menu screen.
4. Press PLAY/PAUSE to play it directly. Or press the DVD-MENU button to access the disc menu during
playback.
5.Use the direction button on the remote control to select the desired option. Press ENTER to select the
option or press the ► button. Playback will now commence.
6.After playback, press the EJECT button on remote control or EJECT button on TV/DVD to remove the
disc.
Note: No function‘’ will sometimes appear on the screen after a button is pressed. This indicates that the
function is not supported at the current time.
