Hi,

Initially, would suggest a re-check of the connections. Thereafter a reset by unplugging from the mains for an hour or so. The "ROOT" message is indicative that the system's firmware is on a glitch. If the reset would not be corrective, it may be to your advantage to seek replacment considering just bought and therefore should be under warranty.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm sorry that the DVD player is displaying green light and nothing is displaying input button. Please follow the below general tips and check if that helps.
  1. Please make sure that the connections are secure and proper.
  2. Try inserting another disc and check the operation.
  3. Unplug the DVD player from wall outlet and connect it back after 1 minute to perform a power reset and check the operation.
  4. Check whether you're able to see the DVD player logo on the TV screen.
  5. If not, keep pressing the INPUT button until it makes any changes on the TV screen for a minute.

I hope the information helpful. If the issue persists, please get back to me with more details about the issue so that I can more look in to this. Please include the following information in your reply.

I have a Toshiba DVD Video Player Model SD 260. I


Hello, The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens, you can clean this by removing the cover of the dvd player . Gently use a dry cotton bud to clean the lens because the lens is fragile. Insert the disc plate into the dvd player and press play, if it does not play try the second method. Ensure the cover of the player is open, connect the power plug to the mains socket and observe the lens if it beam a red light, Also check the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board, then gently clean the lens with a dry cotton bud , insert the disc plate and press play to see if it play. If it does not play the disc, then this require a change of the lens

Awa dvd recorder dr711 can this be connected to a set top box


If it's like the DR620 it will only receive analogue from the TV aerial. I connect the AV out connections on my set box to the inlet AV on the recorder and watch and record through the recorder's "rear AV input" selection.

I recently purchased a DVD which is Region 1, we are Region 4 and the DVD will not play on our AWA Combination DVD/VCR. Any suggestions?


Search google for region-free/multi-region codes codes as well as your DVD Player Model

e.i.: AWA DVDS203 region free codes
e.i.: AWA DVDS203 unlock region

Replace "DVDS203" with whatever model your DVD Player is.

Do not pay for codes! The unlock method may be simply typing some stuff into your remote or having to download firmware upgrades, burn to CD and play on the DVD Player.

Warning: Unlocking DVD Players MAY void some warranties!!

Can't get new DVD player to play


On some sets there is a button on your remote marked "TV/VIDEO" or some such text. With your tv and player hooked up and working, pushing that button will switch from TV to video and back.

On other sets, if you keep changing channels, you will eventually come to one that turns off the video broadcast and plays the DV.

Good Luck
