Question about Yamaha DVD-S520 DVD Player

1 Answer

Skipping, stopping and 'blocked'

Had our DVD player for a few years now and recently it has started to skip whilst playing CDs and DVDs, now it will only play part of a DVD before stopping,with the picture frozen, sometimes all the buttons the lock out and if you can get the disc out the door refuses to close and 'BLOCKED' appears on the display. Have checked that the discs are clean, switching it on and off at the mains and have used a 'lens cleaning disc'-do those things really work? Hope someone can help and thank you. Gertie

Hello
Check its laser pickup unit is dusty. Insert a lens cleaning disc into the set and play it at least two times. If this does not help you. the laser picku unit must be repalced.

Dvds keep skipping


It is possible that your portable set has a defective optical head and so does not read properly the cds. Hence it will be good if you cna get the optical head changed provided the cost if effective. the unit has to be changed with precaution because any static damage to the new head can be serious. hence if you are not familiar get help to install the new head . Hope you try. Good day

LG GH22LP20 has audio skipping on DVDs and CDs


Do you have skipping on every DVD/CD you burn? If so, then you're probably experiencing what's called 'buffer underrun'. When that happens, the burner writes faster than the computer can send it information, resulting in skipping. In the program you use, look for the 'burn options' and change the speed from 'automatic' to a manual, slower setting. That should fix your problem.

My Sony DVD/VCR combo will play cds but not dvds. I took the top of the player off and I can see that the dvd spins but it won't play. It used to play everything very well but just stopped working...


Please clean laser lens with good quality cotton bud gently and check dvd disc playback, if still does not play, replace optical lens block.
Let me know model number of your Sony DVD-VCR combo to provide you optical laser block part number info.
Thanks.

Philips SCB5265 DVD/CDRW drive only reads CDs but not DVDs


Take a can of air and blow it on the laser then try to see if it will read both cd's and dvd's. If it doesn't read one or the other then the dvd-rw would need to be replaced.

DVD stopped playing all DVDs


Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.
