Teac DV-H550 DVD connection to reference 500 series

Hi I wonder if anyone knows what's going on here ? I recently purchased the afore mentioned DV-H550 DVD and placed it on top of my reference 500 series system. I play it on my TV via the scart and the audio through the TV is fine too. I connected the remote lead to the spare remote socket on the back of the AG500H receiver but the system does not switch on through this. Oh well ! But I checked the CD output of the DVD payer through the amp and it is fine. Only problem now is that if I insert a CD into the existing 500 CD player or the 550 DVD player they both display the last track first. Not track 1 as previously ! I have to press play to get them to start on track 1. A minor annoyance I know but has some memory chip got switched on and if so and is the system easy to reset ? Do you do this through the reset hole at the back of the receiver ? Hope you can help from a disgruntled physicist

Hi, Your particular brand/model was made in the very early 2000. It is possible that the eye (optical lens) is already weak and would need replacement or calibration. You may want to try and clean the lens hopefully improving the reading capability. Some users of CD players use a PC CD cleaner to clean the eye (pls read the instructions) though this can be done by going inside the unit). Probably your best bet is to seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help and give you ideas. Pls post again how things turn up and/or if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: CD player won't play disk and says "no disk"

The problem of "'no discs'"displayed is in the mechanism in the roller thats moving back and port bringing the lense set .The old grease thier is already hardened that cause the problem.Clean that by using a lighter fluid or like that fluid to take the old grease,and put it with a new one first class grease type-A grease put only a little grease and wipe the lense with a cotton buds without any chemicals on it .Try this solution so performance will be better.

Does anyone know how to de-code or hack a TEAC DV-H500 cd/dvd player. After owning for several years i still can't play or watch many disc's. Many Thanks

This works with some dvd players, don't know if it'll work with yours... With the remote, open the tray... punch in 9,9,9,9...and then enter, and then '0' and hit enter again. This breaks the region code or allows playing of any disk.

When playing a DVD, picture & audio stop for a second one a while, no problem when playing a CD

this may just be the mechanism changing diretion as it reads the second layer on the disc usually because the film is too long to go on one side of the dvd disc.
quite normal.
but if happening quite a lot during playing a film then it could be something as simple as cleaning the mechanism. NOT for the untrained
