Stopped playing discs

Hi. The DVD player on my home theatre stopped working. It only says "reading" and nothing else happens. We got the 3 discs out, thinking it was a disc that went in wrong somehow..but is not working. I don't know a thing about these things, have not used this very much, just went to play a disc, from the main unit not the remote, and this all happened. Can you help me? It is out of warranty now, of course. Thanx...your time and help is greatly appreciated...sincerely...Leeann Miller

Re: Stopped playing discs

Leeann Have you tryed to clean the lens yet with a lens cleaning disc? If not invest in one as it may be your problem as dirt and dust does collect on the lens if its not used all that often or worse yet a film on the lens will stop it from reading the disc. Since you did already say you knew nothing about these things then thats where your troubleshooting stops, If it dosent correct the problem with a cleaning. Now its time to call JVC to see where the best and closest servicer are located Sorry couldnt help ya more But theres a limited amount a consumer can do these days as these units have no user serviceable parts inside and best to be done by a pro Good Luck.

Wrong region

Hi , The reason for the error message is because your DVD player is set to one specific zone. The below procesure will open the DVD player to play all zones.
YOUR REGION AREA WILL APPEAR. PRESS "0" TO UNLOCK (OPEN the DVD player to ALL zones) ALL, THEN WAIT. INSERT YOUR DISC. Hope this helps. Let me know the status. Thanks, Mike

DVDs & CDs will not play

If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!

DVDs won't play

Hi Pookie, This is an easy fix. All you need to get is a CD/DVD-Player Laser-Lens Cleaner for about $5.00. You can get these at Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, or any similar place. Use this, and let me know how it works for you. Best regards, nightdiver
