DVD Locks up

Help! When playing back DVDs, I've recently encountered problems where the unit just "stops".....sometimes it locks up when initially loading the disk, and you can't break out of it without unplugging the unit. Other times in the middle of playback it will just shut off completely. Any ideas? Thanks

Re: DVD Locks up

Sounds initially like your loading mechanism needs service.
Are your discs clean and free of debris? Have your tried a disc cleaner.

Daewoo DR 2100P will not record and play back

Either a circuit problem in the unit (old age) or a dirty or bad optical unit and could also be a problem in the mechanism that locks it up.

How do you unlock an Audiovox D1788?

Enter the Menu screen, select, preference, select default, and OK.
If the problem is with password forgot, the default passord of this unit is [ 3308]. Enter this password on the first screen. Sometimes the unit won't accept this passord for the first time to cheat you, enter this pasword again. After that, you can enter your own passord. OK.

My unit is a DVP3140, purchased 2006 or 2007. As soon as I got it, I changed the code to region 0 so that I could play the DVDs I bought when I lived in Italy. It worked great for about 3.5 years of...

By changing to Region 0 you've changed the Laser control and subsequently the Laser is failing earlier than it would have done under normal operation.

The only solution would be to replace the Laser which is not normally cost effective and often unavailable anyway.

CDs may still play for a period of time as these require less power as there isn't as much information to read as a DVD.

Hyundai HY601G does not play all region DVDs

Then it's set to only play certain region's dvds. Get a region free dvd player or maybe you can check online for a way to unlock the region locks on it.

Won't load DVD for Initial IDM-7110

First check and see what is happening inside. Take something small and stick n the lock mech, which is the hold that a small part of you top to the player sticks in to tell the unit that it is closed. See if the lense light up and moves up and down and also see if it moves forward a bit and back to start position. If player does not do any of this then with fingers move lense down line abit to see if anything is obstruting path. You can move all the way down then place DVD in and try again
