DVD not playing disc

I have connected the Yamada DVDSlim 5520 to my TV using a Scart.I also tried connecting it through coaxial cable(From coaxial output of DVD to TV aerial input(RF input)socket.When the tray is closed,the disc starts loading for a moment (as indicated by the display window) and stops. Doesnot play disc when the play button on the front panel is pressed.Nothing happens when you press the Previous/Next buttons.I have misplaced my remote control - hence have to use manual buttons on Front Panel of DVD. Do I have to select a specific TV channel (AV1/AV2)to view disc being played?

I put a regular dvd into my blu ray player but it will not play. the player just says load and when I push the play button nothing happens. I'm using an hdmi cable and my 42 i.nch widesreen sharp tv is set...

Assuming it will play regular DVD's I'd suggest you connect it by scart also and set your TV input to scart.

I don't think DVD's carry High Def. data, that being the case, your player may auto route the data via scart.

Proscan PS8682P dvd player. It has been over a

so you have two problems: how to connect to (ex: tv),so for this. the cable box has a scart port? if so use a scart/rca adapter available on the market, use on VCR out (Cable Box) and select IN the adapter to IN/OUT switch. and connect to dvd player. The other Scart Port labeled TV connect to TV set with a scart cable. Now u can see tv, and switch automatic to dvd if DVD is on.

The Bad Disc error is a Laser DVD lens defective, needs to be replaced, send to repair.

What channel does tv need to be on to play dvd's

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Depending on where you are and the standards/connections used, it could be:
  • Channel 3 or 4 (if using a single coaxial patch cord);
Other connection possibilities are:
  • AV, Video 1, AUX, Line 1 (if using composite yellow red & white RCA to RCA cables);
  • Component (if using component Y, Pb, Pr, red & white RCA to RCA cables).
  • SCART;
  • HDMI;
  • S-Video.
Perhaps you could post back what is used, what connectors are available at the rear of both the DVD player/TV.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Connecting TV to combo DVD and VCR

When you say "can't get the TV to play through the VCR", do you mean that you can't get the cable-stations to play through the VCR to the TV? I'll assume that's what you're trying to accomplish.

The most common way to connect a VCR to a TV is through a coaxial cable, from the port on the rear of the VCR labeled "Out to TV." There should be another coaxial port labeled "Cable/Ant In." This is where I picture your cable programming is currently connected.

Instead, it sounds like you connected the VCR to a modulator (probably thru RCA composite cables, which have yellow / red / white plugs). Then the modulator connects to the TV thru a coaxial cable. This will successfully play the VCR to whatever specific channel (perhaps 2, 3 or4), but the modulator doesn't know of any other signals to send to your TV.

2 possible solutions:

1) If the modulator has a coaxial port labeled "Cable/Ant In" or something indicating "In" at a threaded coaxial port, connect your cable-programming to this instead of the to the VCR.

Depending on what type of modulator it is, when you want to switch from watching the VCR to watching cable-programming, you might have to push a button on the modulator to make the swtich, or you might not. Your modulator might put the VCR on channel 3, and allow the higher cable channels to filter though to their respective stations. Most cable providers will leave channels 2, 3 and 4 blank for this purpose. Try it and see.

2) Axe the modulator. Take it out of the system entirely. Connect your cable programming to the VCR "Cable/Ant In" and use another coaxial cable to go from the VCR's "Out to TV" port to the TV. When you want to switch from watching the VCR to watching cable, press a button on your VCR or the VCR's remote. Usually this button is labled, "TV/VCR."

If this does not help, write back and explain in more detail how your system is currently connected.

Dvdrecorder and convertor box

If the clarification request is correct. The only thing i can suggest is. Plug aerial into converter box. plug converter box into TV using either scart or coaxial cable. then connect converter box to dvd recorder using scart or coaxial cable depending on what you used to plug converter box into TV with. Then plug dvd recorder into TV. I don't know if you have to set-up the converter box to start receiving i'm not sure. But try this anyway.
You'd probably have been better off getting a free-view box and your dvd recorder. Because as long as you've got a free-view box you'll always get digital. Hope this helps

How can I unlock a dvd to play dvds from all regions, I understand that by entering a code it can be done. The DVD player is Yamada dvd slim 5520

  • Download the firmware update from:
  • Extract the file to your hard drive and burn the 11121213.BIN to the root directory of a CD. Use Standard ISO9660 Format and finalize the CD. Don't use Joliet, multi-session or XA Format!
  • The CD title must be P80J0001. Don't copy both firmware versions on one CD. You have to use separate CDs.
  • Insert the ready CD into the DVD-Player and press Play when prompted.
  • When the CD drive opens take out the CD and wait about 1-2 minutes.
  • The DVD player will be reset automatically

    DVD recording.

    Sounds like the DVDR is recording from the digi-box through the TV, so when the TV is switched of or into standby the signal is lost, causing the recorder to pause.

    Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

    • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
    • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
    The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

    To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380
