Sounds like a dry solder joint or an overheating component, both will likely be in the power supply....Phil

Malata 6838 dvd karaoke player plays at middle power off by itself


From the description it is the microprocessor ic that is the issue, as the temperature rises it starts to break down under load until it shuts the player down. It is far cheaper to replace than go through a costly repair.

Our Blu-Ray player has a lot of problems playing Blu-Ray disks. Sometimes it doesn't load at all and sometimes it stops in the middle of the movie and we can't get it to reload the same disc. Lately we've...


Yes I would replace it, the laser pickup assembly is showing early signs of failure, it will often play the regular dvd movies because there is less demand on the laser tracking system. The cost to replace is cheaper than repairing the unit.

Dvd recorder turns off after 25 sec of recording. plays dvds just fine. what could be wrong?


hello,
read one of the other 'fixits' and applied it to my situation. i opened tray, turned off the machine, then pushed the tray half way in. used air and completely blew out the unit. (as well as can be expected w/o opening.) it now works.
it was very weird. it would shut off exactly 25 seconds after starting recording every time, at least 10 times. another weird thing was that it played dvds just fine.
thanks for help,

I have a region 2 samsung dvd player. All of a sudden the following message displays: '' Can not play disk. Wrong region code'' We have been playing the dvd for more than 1 year. What is the problem? Same...


What follows is mostly generic advice which applies to the vast majority of DVD players which I've tinkered with.

Your problem normally only happens if someone else has played a different region coded DVD on your machine. Normally you get seven chances to reset the region code before the machine locks itself permanently to one of them. before the changes are permanent the player will usually ask you if you want to change the region code when you try to play a disc from the wrong region.

Before doing anything else it's worth asking other members of your household if they have recently used the player, especially if you know anyone may have been using imported discs. If they've used up all of the region changing opportunities then hacking the machine might not work at all.

If you use a search engine you can search for DVD-P181 hack and these will guide you through the process to make your DVD player a multi-region machine, but there are three different hacks which I've seen for the same player so you may need to try them all.

Magnavox mwd 2206 dvd vcr player....shuts off with eject word across screen.


On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.

Unit automatically switches off


Maybe all you need is to dust off the DVD player's pickup. I have had this happen several times with several players. After dusting the pickup, those players are still in service.
