DVD PLAYER NOT PLAYING DVD

UNABLE TO PLAY DVD BUT PLAYS OTHER DISCS I bought my Bose 3-2-1 11/08/02, and it worked fine until last fall when I disconnected it from an old DISH receiver. I have followed all the troubleshooting tips in the owner's guide but have not been able to get video out of the unit. I can get audio from DVD's, tv programs, and play cd's. All of my wiring is good quality and connectd correctly. I am stumped.

If everything is connected properly, you may just have a bad video circuit. Since you get audio from the DVD, you have a video circuit problem if everything is connected right and you have all setting right. Here is the bigger problem. Bose will not sell parts for their equipment to anybody unless they are a authorized service center. They tell their authorized service centers that if they catch them selling parts to anybody they will pull their authorization. I know this because ZI have worked at an authorized Bose service center.

Take it in to an authorized Bose service center and have them give you an estimate, then you can determain if it is worth fixing. They have several video IC's in them that process all the video and it is very difficult to troubleshoot them.

I am trying to play dvds from England (Region 2) on this dvd player and bought it specifically because it is region free - plays NTSC and PAL, so thought it would be an obvious choice. I can get the dvd to...


Are you in the US? Your TV system is NTSC. The player possibly plays NTSC and PAL(European system) discs on PAL TVs only. Try to find out from the user manual of the DVD player if you can change the output signal to NTSC. Now it is PAL even though you are playing NTSC discs.

My dvd player plays dvd discs ok. but when i use dvd burned on my computer shows no disc.the same disc plays fine on my computer


Some DVD and Blu-Ray players will not play a burned disc until it has been finalized. Finalize the disc on your computer then see if it will play. (Finaalizing a disc means it can no longer be recorded to, by the way.)

The Player does not work with Compact Discs.Hoiw to rectify prob


HELLO
I have had this problem quite a few times and I will explain. In the laser pick-up of a DVD player it is, in fact, TWO lasers in one block. One plays CD/MP3 discs and other plays DVD's. It's more than likely that the CD laser has gone faulty which means you can only play DVD.
I have also had the reverse problem of it only plays CD's and not DVD. If you are not too upset that you cannot play CD's then just use it as a DVD player. If you want you can try to clean the lens of the laser block, but it's unlikely that will cure it.
You have two options. Use it as a DVD player only or get the optical block replaced, but it will cost you just as much as another DVD player if not more!
Hope this helps :-).

CD player won't play MP3 CD's?


I have had similar problems in the past - on one computer discs burned using nero were unreliable but using Windows Media Player they were fine and on other computers the Windows programme was useless and produced unreliable inconsistent results.

I suggest you experiment with different burning software and maybe suspect the drive you are using might be past it's best.
I have several cd players in my vehicles and around my home. Only a couple of them will play all the discs and most of them are very choosy and will only read premium price shop bought discs and it is a waste of time trying to play a discount store or freebie disc, or many of my computer burned discs.

I don't know what the differences are - maybe it is the software or the power of the laser burning the disc or the sensitivity of the reading laser, but there are many differences in there somewhere. The situation is very frustrating...

Pionner DVR-540H-S no longer plays DVD's


little,

good day, true it's not advisable to use disc cleaner for it may also damage or scracth the optic lens inside.Possibly the optic lens of your player is either dirty caust by dust or faulty. but let's do hope it's only dust related and the only thing you can do now is to open and unscrew the upper cover of your player. Get a soft cotton buds, after dismantling the upper cover locate the optic drive lens and clean the lens by wipping it gently in circular direction. then try to play some DVD.

cheers,
mark

DVD PLAYER NOT PLAYING DVD


The DVD lens is worning out and the day is not far when it will not play any DVDs but will play audio CDs etc...and then not also that. The typical life of a lens is not more than 2 years...So the only solution is the replace the lens in the system
