RCA DRC-285 DVD Player won't respond


hi, 2 things usually cause this kind of behaviour 1-the dvd+r have been burnt at a high speed 2-the dvd player itself is a bit old when you burn your dvd+R always burn them at a lower speed lowest if possible it'll take longer but it's well worth it and you wouldn't have a problem playing them back

Sounds like the optical drive either needs 1 of 2 things. (1)Try cleaning the optical drive with a cleaning kit (2) replace the optical drive. However it may cost more to replace/repair it that it is worth...

Disc error message when load DVD


Are you loading to play or to record?
Commercial DVDs should play.
DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.

Panasonic dvd player, wont play error code HO3 keeps coming up, took it back to shop they wont help as cant find receipt


On my DVD-LV50, I was able to re-initialize and fix a different error (error code H05). It might work for you, too.

With no disk in the player, press and hold these buttons for 4 seconds:
  1. Back skip -- [ |<< ]
  2. Pause -- [ || ]
  3. Play -- [ > ]
The screen will go blank, then say "Initialized."

After that, it worked like new.

I hope that helps.

DVD DRC630N


Hey, this looks familar. Here's the same answer (first)....

Sometimes this is a dirty surface on the Disk. Watching it with a soft cloth and non-abrasive 'gentle' dish soap can help. At least, that's what Netflix tells me to do with them.

If it's happening on EVERY disk, and all you're playing are commercial, new, pre-recorded DVDs, then there's more things to try. Some links from reputable sources:

http://www.techlore.com/article/10478/

http://www.ehow.com/how_2036277_fix-error-dvd.html

After all that fails, it's probably time to change the DVD drive inside the player. Sometimes this is easy, sometimes not. :) with the DRC 630N, this would be more in the 'not' arena. :)

Of course, if you have a valid warranty, then when you're left with no solutions that don't void the warranty, you have to decide whether to try to pass it off to the warranty holder for repairs.
----------------------

But, with more information....can you still play the games that this unit comes with? Assuming so, then the problem is probably one of alignment of the read sensor. This is generally a repairman fix.
