Question about Apex Digital AD-1225 DVD Player

Loading...loading...loading...(10 minutes later) disc

When you put a disc in the player, it says loading, loading, loading for a long time, and then says 'no disc'. It does this on all discs. The problem gradually grew from but an occasional irritant, to complete failure to function, over a period of a couple months. We'd clean the discs when it first began happening, and thought that helped. Eventually it didn't help, if it ever did. At least it's an attractive blue screen! ?(?┬┐?)?

Re: Loading...loading...loading...(10 minutes later)

I just fixed this problem. This will not fix any underlying problem, but it will get you up and running again. THIS MIGHT SCRATCH THE CD.
Unplug the unit. Remove the top cover. There are screws on the side and the back. Once you do you will see the dvd is not in correct position. Slide it around till you feel it drop into place. YES, YOU MAY END UP SCRATCHING THE CD. Plug the unit back in and it will eject.

For me the underlying problem is that the disc drawer closes while I am putting the cd in, causing it to not be seated properly. If anyone knows how to fix this .....

Cyberhome DVD writter not decting DVDs . Getti g a disc error.

HI Johnny,

Any chance someone went near the DVD/VCR and dusted with some Pledge or any kind of dusting spray? It sounds like something has got the DVD driver chip acting crazy. May be a faulty disc tray switch telling the controller the door is opening and closing all the time. If its brand new, do you have an opportunity to take advantage of a warranty claim?

When a disc is loaded, it reads no disc, and disc cannot be played.

It is very possible that the lens motor has burnt out. Sometimes the capacitors on the motherborard short out causing the gear timing to go out..

The only thing you can do to fix this is to take the cover off. Get cotton swab and dip it rubbing alcohol and clean the glass laser eye with it.

Vcr works but dvd disc of go video solely say loading

There are a few different things that you can try. First make sure that your discs are clean before you put them in the player. Even if the disc is new I would recommend cleaning the disc off. The second thing that you can try is a DVD player reset. You can do this by unplugging the player for about 5-10 minutes. Then plug it back in and try the disc. If that does not help I would try a DVD head cleaner in the player. If all of these things do not work, it is most likely an issue with the player.

the laser inside may be having the problem or the optical sensor inside the player is not proper.....

if after all the above said procedures fail kindly contact ur manufacturer.

thank you

Samsung 3650 dvd/vcr player loading problem

Sorry, no suggestion other than don't buy Samsung. That's my conclusion after owning the same model. It worked fine for a while, but now won't load any DVD... usually. Sometimes it will play one, but more often it won't. Mine tries to load ("Loading") for a long time, I hear the DVD spinning, then ultimately the screen displays "This disc cannot be played" or something to that effect.
