Re: insignia dvd is-pd040922

I have the same model of DVD player and sometimes that will happen to me, and when it does I will move the screen up and down, and the picture always comes back for me, you can try this but I dont know if you have the same problem as me.

After playing a movie we put in another DVD and the player wouldn't load it; it just ejected the DVD after making sounds as though it tried 5 or 6 times. After turning it off for a couple of days and...

Your laser could be dead. What message does it display onscreen when you try? If it is a "disc read" error or something along those lines it means(in most cases) the laser is dead. It would be expensive to fix it and would be better to buy a new player.(insignia has a 1 year warrantee so you may want to check and see if you can get a new player)

Have you updated the firmware on it? If not go to and do so. If you are trying a Blu-ray movies(you said DVD but you never know) it could be that the player needs a update to support your movie.

Also see the forums at to get info on updates and to let insignia know you still want updates to continue using this player.They are not keeping up with the updates as they should so we consumers that got this player can continue using this player. See forums on info.

I am having maintaining power problems with my PD040922 when I try to use it the system clicks and goes back to LOADING option. I have tried to work through this problem by removing battery and just have mains power connection. Then I just use fully charged battery with the same problem occuring. Is there a solution, other than buying a new player?

Cannot get the visual from the videos

Today with HD High Definition TV these kind of problems appears because the new dvd players have more video resolution options, so, for playing all variety of dvd, and home done dvs,s (like family movies on dvd) you need set up your resolution video on your DVD player at 480i or 480p option, not higher because some DVD movies (mainly oldies) have lower resolution than newer , for example new movies on HD format have 1080 P resolution, and if you have this option chosen in your DVD player you only can see this kind of videos, on the other hand if you have chosen 480i or 480 p on your dvd player , you can play all dvd formats including home movies made with any movie software, in this way you can play dvd-r and +r movies and of cours you can play HD movies also. So put some dvd where your dvd player works well (you need see the dvd menu in the tv screen), then press stop. Then press setup in your remote control, go to video resolution and choose 480 I or 480p, then press ok AND ENJOY THE MOVIE.

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.

This is supposed to be common with all portable players, but only with certain discs. Are you getting this on all discs, or just on some? Good luck
