I tried to play a 9.4 GB DVD in my player, unaware that it would not play. I ejected it, now nothing will work, no mp3, DVD, or audio Cds. The disc does not even spin. What happened?

remove the cover and see if the dvd run, if not you got a motor problem or a motor drive one,if yes then try cleaning the reading eyes(pickup)by blowing dry air (get a can at radio shack)check for goods, if dosent work, take it to a shop for a repair thats all you can do, is a job for a tech....good luck

SOURCE: SONY DVP-S7000 does not play DVD

All reviews that I am reading confirm my belief. It is a 1st generation DVD player and therefore will be hard pressed to play any newer DVDs. Think of it as technology advancing. It's sad but it happens. Even newer DVD players can not play the types of movies being developed today. i.e. BluRay discs. So if you cleaned it and you can play picture discs chances are you're going to have to sacrifice which movies you can watch and search for those it will play.

SOURCE: Sony CX995v "Cannot Play" message on DVDs but plays CDs O.K.

The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.

2008 cadillac 6 disk dolby dvd/cd sound system will not play or eject disk

Alien is right, pull the Radio Fuse, then put it back in and eject the CD/DVD. Happens to me sometimes with burned DVDs, seems like the player is picky on the CD/DVD media. Rebooting the device (by pulling the fuse) is the only way to eject it.

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it

Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

Are you trying to play recordable DVDs like DVD-r or DVD+r ? If yes, then try playing ORIGINAL DVDs such as the ones you rent or buy, these are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your dvd player does not support DVD-R or +R - if it still does not work you may have a bad dvd laser diode - in this case you will need a new dvd player - any repairs would be very costly and cost you more than a new player which is very expensive now.

Player won't read the DVDs

some players won't play burnt discs. If you are using a factory made disc and you still get this, then you can try and clean laser lens with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab.
If the cleaning doesn't work, then the laser lens circuit will need to be replaced.

Dvd won't play or eject

If you want to get the dvd out
you can try this:
First turn of you dvd player at the mains, Then power it up, But the moment it powers up press the eject button a few times so it doesn't start to load. If it doesn't work the first time try it one more time since you may not get the hang of it at first.
then you dvd should eject.
With dvd players like this, corrupt, copied or really scratched dvds may make your dvd player do this.

Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
