Hi, Unfortunately , Some DVD players cant read some DVD s and then it gives either "loading" or " no disc"..reading on the display... it generally happens when you want to play "A copied DVD/CD " taken from somewhere else.. Just
to make sure that such DVD is ok ,you can try to run them on your
laptop.If the disc itself has problem, laptop does not read either.. Since you have not stated,if it is an old player pls Clean your DVD player's LASER lens anyway .. A clean DVD player Lens ensures that
your DVD disc would be read properly. Unfortunately, your DVD player's
Lens accumulate as much dust and lint as the other parts of the DVD
player. There are many available DVD lens cleaner kits

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.
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.
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.
Click the HOME button on the remote with the unit in 480i resolution Click the setup page Click Start Click TV Aspect highlight the 16x9 wide aspect ratio enter on remote control this coded sequence: 1397139
Edit specific "Options"
Option 2: 35 (enables Divx/Xvid playback) Option 4: ff (enables Vcd and SVCD playback) Option 5: ff (enables region free playback (region 0) DVD playback) Option 6: ce (enables Insignia brand startup logo on boot) Option 6: c0 (enables LG brand startup logo on boot)
You must power down after enabling region free playback and re-start.
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!
the first step you need to do is to manually clean the lens of the player to do this you need to open the cover of your player.You will see the mechanism of the player and the lens is place at the center of it.Use a cotton buds dip into a little amount of quick drying alcohol and wipe the lens gently..repeat it 2 or 3 times.next step,you can also try to adjust the lens focus there are two adjustable pot under the lens just at the base of the lens using a plastic jewelry screw carefully adjust the lens clockwise or counter clockwise gradually in a very little amount of adjust untill you get the lens read the dvd disk.test the DVD after every little adjust of the pot. Note! there are 2 adjustable pot there 1 is for the CD disk the 2nd is for the DVD.The last we can do is to replace the lens with a new one you can order a replacement in an electronics shop/supply just bring with you the sample or the part no.it is printed on the lens..thanks and good luck!shoul you have any questions pls post a comment.
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.
