Fading light problem

I have tried to play several discs and the light fades in and out. I have played these same discs previously with no problem. I have what I think is a RF Monitor or modum or whatever you call it. Trudie conner

My Emerson Blu-Ray player will not play Blu-Ray discs from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. The 20th Century logo plays, then fades to black, then it just stops. I never have that problem with any

This is a new one on me. Does it happen on multiple discs or just one? Is the disc from the correct regional code for your player? May be a bad player, software glitch. Emerson is very low grade, throw away brand, and you always get what you pay for. Saving money can be important, but sometimes you need to spend a bit more to get a higher quality product.

Picture fades in and out

If only on some DVD's may not be the unit, possible issue when recording etc---the unit is not smart enough to only fail on certain discs unless it happened during recording---a mismatch of some type.

My DVD player / recorder keeps kicking out the discs I put in. It won't even read them. the screen says close and the tray comes back out almost immediatly. Now it's gotten so bad that the tray won't come...

How old is your DVD recorder/player?
It sounds like it needs a service!
The usual problem with DVD players/recorders not reading discs is that the laser output is starting to fail - and consequently the laser light emitted is insufficient for the system to "read" through the minute "holes" in the disc.
It's possible to have the laser replaced, but this would cost you at least £50, depending on where you live.

Initially, you could try buying (or borrowing) a laser cleaning disc. These cost around £3 to £5 depending on where you buy & live, and have a small brush on the lower side of the disc. Insert this into your player and run the disc for a couple of minutes. If there are any dust particles that have been blocking the light output from your laser head, then this may remove it and might solve the problem.

If this fails, then it seems likely that the laser head is not producing enough output and would have to be replaced with a new one.

Also, you could try playing a CD on your DVD player as these discs contain far less information than a video disc (DVD) and the laser head may be able to cope with this.
If the CD plays ok, then you will know that the reason why it won't play DVD's is the light output has started to fade due to the age or excess use of your system.

Coby 224 Screen Slowly Fades to Dark and Back To Light

Usually if your getting it with the MENU then your connection is weak, are you going through a VCR or some other type of device besides directly to the tv? Try hooking unit directly to the tv. Besides that, its possible you could of messed with the settings, go to the menu, go to advanced and do a reset to make sure no settings were adjusted, the disk has to be out of the tray while you do the reset.
