    I have the same problem, my dvd player does not play some dvds, there is nothing wrong with the dvds, they play very good in my computer, probably the dvd player is not working. Please tell me what to do, do I need a new dvd player? The one I got is new.

Blandenah, As long as you have the cover off of Coby224 please check the elecrolytic capacitors on the power supply board screwed down right next to the Disc Transport mechanism.
Make sure they don't have any swelling of the aluminium can housing. please get back to me on this item if you spot any expanded tops on the filter capacitors. Possibly you could get a
friend with DC voltmeter to check for the three dc voltages unit requires.. +5v for logic +12v -12v for Mechanical things like motors and analog electronics and sensors. If someone checks the voltages, they better be very careful!!!! It is a line operated
switch-mode supply and voltages on the line side could be as high as 200volts DC not to mention the input line being 120vac. It could possibly kill you!! But that's worst-case scenario. Good luck. Please notify me of results of your investigation lmistyrel@aim.com

First check you any other disc in the dvd player.then also try the same dvd disc in any other player.then confirm exactly the problem.if its the dvd player that is having the problem then it must be because of faulty lens just follow this instructions. Step1Make sure the laser pickup lens is actually the problem. There are a wide variety of reasons that a DVD player might not read a disc efficiently. The disc could be scratched or dirty, for example. Test the DVD player with a disc that you know works before trying to clean the lens. Step2Purchase or borrow a lens cleaner disc and try it first. You can find these things really cheap at any large department store. They usually get the job done well. However, you may need to clean the lens manually if the store-bought cleaner fails. Step3Remove the outer casing of the DVD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the DVD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the DVD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens. Step4Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the DVD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection. Step5Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab. Step6Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the DVD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the process.

There may be a issue with the assembly, blu-ray plays with more precision and speed, for some reason it is not slowing down to play the regular DVD's may be a padder motor problem.

My Sony dvp NS710H isn't playing most standard, well conditioned DVDs.


Hello
Just clean its laser pickup lens, by inserting a lens cleaning disc in to, and play it at least two times. If it doesn't help you, the laser pickup unit should be replaced. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart selling shops at your town, and won't cost more.

My dvd won't play. every dvd i put in, it says bad disc. the vcr works fine. is it time for a new system. i tried a head cleaner and it says bad disc


Hello,
Not necessarily time for a new one. I would give the DVD player a good cleaning before you consider a new unit. A good cleaning disk with some little bristles on it. Run it through three full times. DVD players are far more sensitive than VCRs and have to be cleaned even two weeks or so. When they get real dirty it can take some fooling with to get the DVD player to even accept the cleaning disk. But if it just won't accept the cleaning disk and you can't watch a DVD in it then it's time for a new one. I had a DVD player one time that took an hour of fooling around with before it got cleaned good enough to play DVDs. Worked for a couple years afterward.
Regards, Tony

If your DVD's came from overseas or is a copy, they may not play in the player. I have the same problem with playing certain DVD's in my Linux computer. Although they will play in my oldest DVD player. It is due to the copyright protection software that is encoded on the DVD,

My apexAD-500w dvd wont play dvds,but will play the cleaning cd


You need to blow on the lens inside. It may be dusty. Unless you have a can of airduster.

If the lens is good it will work. If it doesn't work then the motor inside is bad

Hi,
are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.
