I had a similar problem and corrected it with a solution found on another site. Try hitting the I/P button on the remote which controls whether "Interlaced" or "Progressive Scan" is used to display the image on the TV. Mine worked when "Interlaced" was used. but no picture was displayed when "Progressive Scan" was used. The I/P button toggles between the two settings.

Clean the eye... try another disc, apex usually pretty robust unit. Glass eye near center spindle, clear alcohol, swab gently.
Loading indicates unit doesn't see the disc..

SOURCE: APEX Digital VCR&DVD PLAYER ADV-3800 will not play DVD's.

What it so far done, it looks pretty fine. I'd break apart the problem if is posible to do it, i mean maybe you have some other sets around the house or some friend who have them.

  • i'd test the dvd/vcr in a different tv
  • i'd test the tv with a different dvd
i would start over again the installation after this test.

the reason is to know if you can trust in those sets and second maybe with some other try the installation works

Will not eject disk.


Almost always, your described problem could be caused by:
  • stuck disc;
  • fault in the load/eject mechanism.

It it were a stuck disc, the correct fix would be to open the unit and manually extract the erring disc. However, there may be possible workarounds:
  • unplug the unit for an hour or so;
  • press and hold the eject button while plugging in; or
  • unplug the unit for an hour or so;
  • invert the unit (bottom side up);
  • plug back the Apex and quickly unplug soon as you hear the mechanical noise start;
  • revert to normal position and try ejecting; or
  • while still in the inverted position, press and hold the eject button while plugging in but must unplug quickly even before the tray starts to move out.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
