    I am having the same problem. I noticed that the disc does not spin when trying to load. My machine is a few years old and probably not under warranty.

If it is new, best advice is to take it the Comapny Service Centre, as you are having Warranty.

I have a DVD/VHS recorder and lost the remote for it --DVW 5000 --Will a Universal Remote work?

We lost our original remote also. We got a generic remote. It came w/instructions & a list of brands/devices that it will work with. I found Sanyo on the list & entered the code associated w/Sanyo into the new remote & presto. We were using our DVW 5000 again.

check to see if the disc spins......As in place the disc in the DVD player with the label in a position that is readable to you....Put the disc in close the tray and wait a few seconds. Open the tray and se if the disc actualy has moved. If it hasent then the motor is bad and not worth replacing!
