DVD PLayer says no playback on all DVDs. New & old.

When I try to play any DVD in my player it always says the disc has no playback. We have never had this problem before. I tried a DVD cleaner, but it made no difference. What should I try next? Do I need to take it to a shop? Thanks, Johnston926

The laser might be defective in that case you will have to have a laser power meter to determine if the laser is bad or not. If you do not have a laser power meter take this set to the shop.

Technika tv/dvd the dvd is only in black and white and wont play the discs

you can try using a DVD cleaner disk on your unit, try several times to make cretin it is clean then try your DVD`s again, if the unit was stored in a damp area this may be a problem, DVD players can be finicky due to this, there may also be a manufacturing defect in the unit that made it fail prematurely.

is the dvd a store bought disc or a burnt dvd? If the disc is a store bought disc I unfortunately can't help you. But if the dvd you are trying to play is burned from dvd burner you are most likely using the wrong type of burnable dvd. There are two types of dvd's you can burn, DVD-R and DVD+R. You need to make sure which one you dvd player can play, some play one or the other, some play both. I have also heard of some older ones that can't play any type of burned disc. Hope that helps Peter

DVD player problem

You may have had a brief power outage you did not know about. Then the DVD player needs to be unplugged from the wall and started up again or your lens may need to be cleaned Because your dvd player is only made to play region 1 discs and vcd's are region 2. You need to buy a dvd player which will play all region discs or is rated region 0 which is the same.

DVD player keeps skipping and gets very blocky looking and then sometimes it just stops I tried cleaning both the lenses of the dvd player with dvd lens cleaner disc and cleaning the dvds nothing seems too...

It sounds like the problem is with the DVD's you've been playing. I've gotten those problems before, but not on every DVD. How many different ones did you try playing?

No disc error showing up-takes 20 tries to bring up dvd

Maybe the laser is unable to focus on the smaller pits and lands of a DVD disk but can see the relatively large pits and lands from a CD just fine. This may be solved by using a CD/DVD cleaner disk. It's a disk with small brushes on it that attempt to brush dust from the laser's lense. They don't always work but that's what I'd try.
