DVD eating discs

I recently finished playing a disc and when I attempted to get the disc out, the disc stayed inside the player but the door still opened. This isn't cool because its a hired DVD. I tried the conventional method of getting it out by sliding a knife under the disc but now the disc has slid to the back and the door won't open. Help Me!!

Re: DVD eating discs

It's obvious that the DVD is stuck in the player. There's only one way to get it out! You have to open the DVD player. If you have never done this before, I don't recommend that you do it.

I insert the dvd and player says loading, and then says no disk?

Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Verify that the disc being used is supported by the player. Clean the disc. Attempt to play a different, commercially produced disc. Remove the disc and leave the player on for a half hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player. If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.

This is quite common of older players. Some only work with DVD+R discs and others with DVD-R discs.
Some player also does not read recordable discs (an early form to try prevent piracy)
Also make sure if recorded on your Recorder, that the disc is finalized before you try to play it on an older player. (See your menu / manual on the recorder for the procedure)

Dvd changer won't play

First have look around see if the discs caused any damage to any of the parts. However you need to be a little clearer on what happens when you attempt to play a disc. For instance does it read the disc? If not perhaps some dust got into the lens area and you might need to clean it.

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock

Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the DVD player cannot read or play the inserted disc.
  1. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the DVD player.IMPORTANT: Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product for a list of compatible disc. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
  2. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
  3. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
  4. Attempt to play another disc.NOTES:
    • If another disc plays in the DVD player, then the previous disc is faulty.

My JVC DR-MV7 will play most DVDs and even record, but recently, it stopped being able to finalize. After I get the message saying "finalization has failed," I can't even play the DVD anymore - thus losing...

My JVC DR-MV7 will not accept any disc for playback. I insert a movie disc and it consistently rejects them. After about 15 to 20 attempts, sometimes it will stay and begin reading the disc. It also sounds like some internal components are encountering some resistance (moving parts inside?). Any ideas?

  • Disc not loaded. Load a disc into the player, close the door and press PLAY.
  • The disc used may be defective. The disc used may be defective, try another disc.
  • The disc is placed improperly in the tray. Make sure the disc is properly placed and centered in the tray and if the disc has a label on one side, make sure the label is facing up.
  • The disc is dirty. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc by wiping in a straight line from the center of the disc to the outside edge.
  • Use of DualDisc or Flip Disc which does not meet the Compact Disc Digital Audio Standard. Some music labels have recently introduced the DualDisc for pre-recorded audio and video content. The DualDisc bonds DVD content on one side 'back-to-back' with digital audio content on the other side. However, the digital audio side does not meet the technical specifications specified in the Compact Disc Digital Audio Standard. For this Reason, DualDisc is not permitted to carry the CD logo. Philips DVD and CD players and disc drives fully comply with the CD specifications and therefore may not recognize the DualDisc. Attempting to use DualDisc may lead to playback problems or jamming in the slot loader or drive.
    The DVD video content on the DVD side of the DualDisc should play on Philips DVD players and DVD drives. However, Philips DVD players and drives do not support DVD Audio, and will not play any DVD Audio content present on the DVD side of a DualDisc. Philips will further investigate DualDisc and update this notice accordingly.
