Question about Panasonic DVD-RV31 DVD Player
Our DVD player plays CDs, but will not play DVDs. We have had the DVD player for about four years, and it has always worked great. The trouble began a few days ago. We had a movie paused. When I went to unpause it, the movie began for a second and then stopped. The DVD player has not worked since. We have tried different DVDs, but the result is the same. It tries to "read" the disc for an unusually long time. Then, the DVD player displays "no play." And the following message is displayed on the television screen: "This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert a different disc." As I said before, it still plays CDs. Thank you in advance for any help that you can give, Melisha
Melisha, I had a similiar problem. Go into the onscreen menu with the remote using the "ACTION" button on the bottom left of the remote. Using the arrow keys in the center of the remote, move to the menu for the audio processing. It will have menu items for DTS, Dolby Digital etc. Change the menu parameters for the "Down conversion" to "yes", get out of the menu mode and see if your DVD works again. If not, make sure there is no DVD or CD in the player, and press the "open/close", "pause" and the double left pointing arrow buttons all at the same time for about 5 seconds until the display on the DVD player says "INITIALIZE". This resets your machine. I hope this helps you.

I had the same problem, don't try to hard it won't solve the problem. Just buy a new cheap one and it even will read more formats.
