Question about Kenwood DV-6050 Multi-disc DVD Player

Reads CD's but not DVD's

I have a Kenwood DV-6050 that has been running like a champ for 2 - 3 years. I just put in a new DVD and everything went dark and it will not play DVD's at all. It will play music CD's though with no issue. This problemn seems to be similar to the one posted byt parisica a couple of weeks ago but I want to add my little piece about the CD's. I will take it apart and clean the laser and see if that help but with CD's playing I don;t know if that will help. Thanks for the help in advance.

Re: Reads CD's but not DVD's

Hi I responded to Parisica's problem, so you have read the "bad news" already. All I can add, is that we see your problem quite often, and without spouting a bunch of tech jargon, lets just say it is easier for the laser to read Cd's than DVD's, so quite often when the laser begins to fail, DVD's will no longer play, but Cd's are fine. I'm not an expert on your model, but Parisica mentions a menu setting that turns DVD video on & off, which may be worth checking, and also cleaning may help, as a dirty laser lense can give the same symptoms as a weak laser. I don't want to get your hopes up, 2-3 years of service can certainly be long enough for laser problems, depending on how much you used it. Good Luck!

I got a DVD In the player now I can not find it. I have skipped disc and it is not there and for awhile I was able to put a disc in an it would play now it just says reading.

I would suggest to insert a lens cleaner and see if that helps. If it doesn't it means that the lens will have to be replace.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

it is either the lense of the hi fi system that may be faulty, therefore, if that is the case you take it back to the dealer that sold it to you.

or probably the disc is not compatible with the HI-FI system.

Re: Kenwood DV 605 CD Player... Power On: Reads "Loading." All 5 CD lights are lit up but the CD changer does not turn. CD #1 appears on screen with two green lights appearing.

ace71cf.jpg We repaired this problem by taking the advice of another member of FixYa! The component had recently been packed to be shipped. After unpacking the unit when we powered up the read out only displayed "LOADING" and the CD changer door would not open. We removed the exterior cover and gently moved the CD changer one position. When it locked back into position we powered up and the unit works fine now. FixYa sure help me save perhaps a $100. or more by not sending it to the manufacturer or another shop. And it was working within minutes so we could enjoy using it right away. Thanks guys I very much will recommend this sevice to others... this was the 2nd problem we fixed that day by logging onto FixYa!!!
