Re: dvd player

Not a disc cleaner you need but a lens cleaner. If that does not work then there are electronic or mechanical problems and most likly not worth repairing.

My dvd combi is saying invalid disc and sounds like its spinning but then makes a clicking noise

Make sure the disk you put in the player is compatible with what is in the manual. Don't try to use disks you burned yourself when the manual does not say it is compatible with CD R or DVD R + or -
And when it is compatible with CD / DVD R, put the files on the disk in a format the player can read. Don't try to play MP4 disks, because almost no MP4 format is compatible with w DVD player.

When i put a dvd in my hitachi htdk185uk it says unknown disc what does this mean

Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

My dvd player ejects the cd when i load it

Either the reading head on the laser is dirty or bad and it is not recognizing the CD. If it is a homemade CD there might be a formatting problem that is not compatible with your player

Shows unkown disc when i put in a burned dvd-r but it will play a store boughten disc what disc format is compadible with yhis unit

This model DVD player can play the following disc formats:

DVD-Video (Region 1 or relevant region coded store-bought movies)

DVD-R (must be finalised on appropriate recording equipment for compatible playback)

CD-R (for jpeg/mp3 media files)

CD-RW (for audio such as mp3)

music CD (such as store-bought albums)

This player will NOT accept DVD-RW/+RW discs, or Blu-Ray.

I hope this helps you a tiny bit.

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the BD player cannot read or play a disc:

1. Ensure the Easy Setup procedure has been completed on the BD player.

NOTE: Can't play DISC may display on the LCD screen if the Easy Setup procedure was not completed first.
2. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the BD player.

NOTE: Consult the instruction manual of the BD player for a list of compatible discs.Manuals are available online through the Manuals/Specs/Warranty link on this page.
3. Select BD players may require that a USB memory device has been properly inserted into the EXT slot of the player prior to playing the movie. If the BD player being used does not have an EXT input, skip this step.

NOTE: The USB memory device may need to be re-formatted to FAT32 format prior to inserting it into the player.
4. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
5. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
6. Attempt to play another disc.

NOTE: If another disc plays in the player, then the previous disc may be faulty. In this case, contact the Customer Information Service Center at 800-222-7669 to speak with a customer service representative for further troubleshooting.
7. Remove the disc from the BD player.
8. Turn off the BD player.
9. Unplug the power cord of the BD player from the electrical outlet.
10. Let the player remain without power for 1 minute.
11. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
12. Turn on the BD player.
13. Insert the disc into the BD player.
14. Attempt to play the disc.

If the issue is not resolved even after performing these steps, then try installing the latest Firmware update if you have not done yet.
Here is the link to download and install the Firmware update.
Select the correct Operating System and download the Firmware update.
Then follow the instruction on the same to install the update in the Player.
If the issue is not resolved even after installing the update, then Playe may require service.

Your problem is the firmware version. Contact Toshiba Tech Support 1-800-631-3811 they will send you a disk with a firmware update along with special instructions on how to update the unit. I had a similar problem and they send me the firmware version 1.013.

Dvd player says loading then wrong disc

If it is disc made with a computer, you may need to convert the format to one that the DVD player is compatible with so it will recognize the disc contents.

Solutions to incorrect disk error c105 & c104

Hello gjbrokke,

First make sure the disc is compatible with the dvd player (CD-R+ , or CD-R - )

Second make sure the region code of the dvd you burned is compatible with the dvd region settings on your dvd player.

One of those two are preventing the disc from playing in your sansui player.

Dvd not playing dvds

Basic Information:

i) try to choose  right burner for eg: Nero CD/DVD Burner

ii) try to choose the right format,

     for eg: MP3/MP4/ Audio Songs will come under Audio format
               in such case select "Audio CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner

     for eg: .DAT/MPEG/MP4/Video will come under Video format

                in such case select "Video CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner

     for eg: "DATA CD format" is only storing some data on CD/DVD iresspective whether it is                            Videofile or Audio file, 

                these "DATA CD formated" CD/DVD when played in DVD Player will play only Audio files 
                but no Video Files
