The dvd menu freezes when making selections also dvd drive makes clicking noises this player is a denon 2930ci

check the position of the reading laser lens head , it might be jerked off from its position..
see whether the dvd/cd is not scratched as this could be the reason for the freeze..

When playing DVDs (tried many different ones) it sticks half way through a film and if starts again has jumped a few frames. Durabrand DVD -420

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, the stepper rail motor drives a worm gear or a cog plastic wheel which in turn moves the laser tracking system, sometimes I find the worm gear cracks causing the assembly to stick or jump. The only option is replace the part, "if available" and is a tricky repair job.

DVD's will not fully load. I suspect that laser does not move radially.


I quite agree with you. But to be very sure, play also with Video CD and Audio CD plates respectively. These two show play properly.

Once a DVD player lens is getting weak, it would start selecting DVD plates, but would play Video CD and Audio CD well. And if the lens gets weaker, it might not play Video CD's properly.

You could use a cotton board to clean the lens of the DVD player, and see if it would improve while loading DVD plates.

Take care.

I bought 2 brand new players rca drc277. Neither one will open the drawer. by button or remote...???is there some code to get it started?

Hello cheekarae,

There is no code to get it started for the first time. If you bought them brand new from the store then you need to return them and get new ones.

If you purchased them off of someone, then I would almost assume they sold you bad dvd players.

The reasons for a cd tray to not come out are A. The motor that turns the gears is not working properly thus not opening the drawer. B. The gears aren't connecting properly and are unable to push the drawer out like there supposed to. (Typically you will hear some clicking or grinding noises if this is the case).

Sorry about your luck, I would look towards replacing them for some that function correctly from the get go. Post back if you have anymore questions. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

I've downloaded a firmware update for my Aquos BD- HP20 Blu-ray player.  Unzipped the zip file and I put the .RVP file onto a Sony memory stick but when I try to get the player to recognize I file on the...

today i solved following errors on sharp blu-ray hp20 when updating software to play quantum of solace:

can't detect software: due to .rvp file being inside a folder--not in root directory on usb stick

more than one software file detected by player: .rvp hasn't been properly unzipped. the 2 gb disc and, as far as i could tell, my system (imac os 10.5.6) showed successfully extracted SINGLE file ready for transfer to dvd player, but dvd player said that there was more than one file. erased the 2 gb disc with disc first aid utility as part of exercise. also verified FAT format on 2 gb disc. only after i used a downloaded free mac utility *specifically for extracting ZIP files* to transfer the .rpv file to the 2 gb disc did the dvd player recognize the file and i successfully updated the player's software! (sorry for the run on, i think the logic is accurate)

My C.D Drawer is stick I can't get it open.

First off, what is the make \model of your machine so I can help you better. Otherwise, take the cover of the unit off and look to see if you can see any small gears at the front of the drawer. If so use a small screwdriver to turn the gear or gears. The laser assy. will move down first to get out of the way of the drawer then the drawer will slide open.
If you cannot see any gears you must get the drawers' faceplate off. Once off you should be able to see gears or a belt and motor that you spin to get the laser assy. down. Once the laser assy. is down you will be able to slide the drawer out by hand.
Replace belt if there is one. Good Luck!!

DUR 1800.

My daughter had the same problem with hers. What happens is the laser gets stuck. When you remove the DVD-I'll bet the laser is not all the way in towards the center. If you GENTLY slide the lens towards center, and it moves at all, that's the problem. The fix is to look inside the horizontial slot that the laser runs in-you will see gears-with a Q-Tip, put a drop of sewing machine oil on the gears, then rub the oiled Q-Tip where you see a rail that the gears run on. Try it out- the other fix is to check for loose plastic pieces inside the machine. Tilt it GENTLY, from side to side-if you hears something sliding around-try to get the piece out somehow-the case is not hard to open. BUT try the sewing machine oil fix first. Also this machine does not like some DL (Duel Layer) disks-not all but just some-I haven't found a fix for that yet-but still looking.

When the disc player is turne on it says welcome and the it goes to init then please wait. ..then nothing

OK, I am not a computer geek at all. . . and it was not me that found the solution. But I will describe it the best I can, which may be even better if I get my point across for anyone else that is as inept as I.

There is a hole on the bottom on the left of the unit. If you look in it, there is a gear that you can turn. Basically the housing of the cd's is stuck and if you move the gear this housing will rise when looking at the whole unit with the top off. You move the gear till the housing can go no higher and it is fixed!!!! Make sense? I really hope this helps. . .We almost had to buy another cd player. . . . Hopefully this one will last a few more months or even years.
