Keeps telling me Wrong Disc....

Every time we put a DVD on for our 2 year old it loads up for maybe a minute then says wrong disc. We have tried everything and i cannot seem to figure it out. It has been working great up till two days ago. Is there something on the remote he may have pressed?

Re: Keeps telling me Wrong Disc....

Try another disc and if that fails get a DVD lens cleaner disc. That will clean the lasers lens wich in most cases causes the issue. Don't overlook alot of fingerprints on the dics itself. One thing to try quickly and see if the laser is still working is put an audio CD in and if that plays then most likely the dirt is the factor.

I get wrong disc error when trying to play the DVD's but sometimes the same DVD will work! I don't understand

Sounds like the laser eye on your DVD player is dirty and will only read some DVD's some of the time. This happens a lot. I recommend getting a good quality DVD/CD/PC cleaner disk. They will have little bristles on them and work wonders for dirty lenses. Run it through all the way 2 times to get a good cleaning and your DVD player should be back to playing all your movies.

Hello, Try a soft reset, unplug the TV from the AC outlet then reconnect, then power the TV on. You should get some kind of a start up menu. If you don't then make sure you're DVD is operating normally there might be something wrong with the disc player and that is why it is reverting to disc pick up or disc load.

Dvd problems

The issue is the motor will need to be replaced, And why i always suggest to cosumers not to buy all in ones for this purpose. The labor to fixy this is over $100 bucks alone and the part you need to replace the entire dvd unit in this.

1. check your warranty
2. bring it to a shop to have the unit fixed

Thanks and please do leave positive ratings and feedback for your free answer today.

Dvd won't play disc

hi. the actual lens assembly has become unstable and this is misaligned the lens. it is unable to line up correctly with the inserted disk so that it may recognize and read the data. when this occurs, the default reading will be WRONG DISK.

You with have to replace the entire lens assembly, which is one whole piece, to actually restore this unit to its original state.

Please rate and god less:)

Daytek DVK2001S will not read "PAL" DVD.

Yep, your dvd player may be capabile of producing a PAL video signal, but that does not mean it will play DVDs from a different region. If you require that functionality, do some research on the internet to find a player that will play any regon before making a purchase decision.

TV keeps shutting off

Since the set needs to be unplugged and plugged back in, the requlator circuit in the power supply may have a problem. The set is over a decade old and other things are going to start going wrong with it. Capacitors will dry up, solder joints will begin to crack and the picture tube will begin to get weaker. My suggestion is to invest in a new set, with a newer technology. Hope this helps.
