Question about Mitsubishi DD-8020 DVD Player

2 Answers

DVD not loading

I have a Mitusbishi DD-8020 which I purchased 5 years ago. Recently I purchased new DVDs, maily from Columbia and Warner Bros. that will not load, although other new DVDs will. I've cleaned the lens and I still have the same problem. I read somewhere that these companies have RCE encoding and that their DVDs will not play on a region-free DVD players. Is the DD-8020 a region-free player? If it is, is there a fix to this problem, or do I need to purchase a new player? I've also noticed that the DVDs that will not load have a small clear ring at the begining of the DVD (much like the old CD copy protection). Could this be the problem?

Re: DVD not loading

You have to look on the back of your dvd player to see what region your player is then you will have to check the dvds that you have from colombia and warner bros and see what are thier dont have to purchase a new dvd just dont buy or rent dvds from the above mention place.if the region on the dvds of both place do not match your dvd player you will be wasting your time.good luck.

Hi, I bought this LG RC897T 2 years ago and have only used the DVD player about 60 times. I've bought original "US" TV Box set dvds and Chinese knock-offs, and wrote my own dvds and they all...

Hello Mark. Most likely your player is regionalized and not compatable ith those DVD's that won't play. To eliminate the regional setting on your player go to this link

It contains the step by step instructions on how to make your player region free. It also has an how to video and a full explanation of why the regionalization was installed in the first place. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Lost power, need to extract dvd disc

Straighten a paperclip. On the face of most disk players there is a small hole. Push the paper clip into the hole, and the disk tray should release. Pull the tray out to it's full extension. Power being on or off is immaterial. Hope this help.

Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,

Denon 3910 won't load some dvds/cds and vibrates while trying.."disc error"!

I have the Denon 2900 (about 4 years of use) and until recently, suffered from the same (growing) problem. CD's were very difficult to start/read. I recently found advice which I tried and was succesful with. It was manually cleaning the laserlens. I took away the outer housing by unscrewing all off the on top (6), side (4) and the back (2) bolts. After that I took out the top plate of the laserunit which took two very little screws taking out. Now you are looking at the cd-tray with the lens. Take a very soft and clean cloth and moisten it a little bit with clean water (be very carefull with the moistening, don't allow any waterdrop to come out of the cloth into the laserlens while cleaning! Carefully clean the lens and dry it with a dry part of the same cloth. Replace the top plate and the outer housing and the player will recognize the discs like it's new again. Good luck!

Sony RDR-VX500 does not load some dvds, disc error.

Try the disks in another DVD player. If they play with no problems in another player, then you have a hardware issue with your Sony. Nowadays, if it is out of warranty, fixing it is not worth it, because it is cheaper to replace, at least in the USA.
