Is it a disk you made, or is it a purchased disk? Does it show any error messages?

I have tried to play 2 dvd's from netflix. I have used this player for 6 months and not had a proble. Both dvd's didnt play and disk error message appaered


Double check that you don't have BluRay disks that you are trying to play in a standard DVD. Or that they are upside down...

Netflix disks, in my experience, have all had scratches and gouges on them. It might be that you are the recipient of 2 disks in a row from netflix that are too damaged for your DVD to play.

Dvd changer won't play


First have look around see if the discs caused any damage to any of the parts. However you need to be a little clearer on what happens when you attempt to play a disc. For instance does it read the disc? If not perhaps some dust got into the lens area and you might need to clean it.

I have never had a problem with my DVD player until now.My Philips DVD player will not recognize series disks (Bones Season 3) nor will it recognize burned disks. When it does finally play, it skips and...


The symptoms you describe all point in the direction of the player's laser power going down.

When this happens, your player will start to develop problems with DVD-R(W), not recognising the TOC (table of content) of a disc and therefore refuse to play it, skip tracks, etc.

Since there is quite a bit of variation in the reflective properties of various discs, your player may work fine with some discs and not so fine - or not at all - with others.

Unless you have the service manual and know how to tweak the laser output - which is a critical thing to do - I fear your player is reaching the end of its life.

Do not try using cleaning discs as these are more likely to cause damage than the clean your player's lens. If you want to have a go at the player's internals, then first read all the useful tips on this site: http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/cdfaq.htm

Good luck.

If it only fails on home made discs the problem lies in how they were burnt.

DVV Player won't play disc


Check to make sure your player can play other disks. If so then use the disk doctor to remove the scratches on your favorite disk. The area that all DVD players scan before playing a disk is probably smudged or scratched.

Check disc


Is the surface or your disk smudged or damaged? If not, try a lens cleaner CD or kit and see if the problem goes away. If they are DVD Rs or something similar(DVD-RAM, DVD+R, ETC) the player may not be able to play that particular format, and you should double check the instruction manual to see what types of disks can be read.
