Zone is the region of your dvd player and what dvds its capable of playing. If you didnt know what you have done then its hard to know what could be wrong, first things first try this .. this is a factory reset that if you did change something important in the home menu it will fix it for you and start the system from the beginning when you first took it out of the box.

hope this helps mate.. if it doesnt email me back on here.

Resetting the system
Use this procedure to reset all system settings
to the factory default.
1 Switch the system into standby.
2 Press and hold the front panel

button for about 8 seconds until the
display shows ‘Mem.Clr.?’.
3 Press the front panel play/pause

All the system’s settings are now reset, and
you should see the ‘Let’s Get Started’ screen.

I would guess this model is over two years old. not sure how much you paid, but target sells a decent surround sound blue ray system for just under 300. i got it. it works great, streams netflix movies an even has an internet radio system in it.

if you dont wanna do that, and have made sure that you have tried brand new cds, another option is to play cds on a cheap cd player hooked into your surround sound. it can go in any input on the back with an adaptor you can buy at radio shack, or many of them have an input in the front.

they used to make a cd lens cleaner, not sure if they still exist. it was a tiny brush hooked onto a cd that you put in and it cleaned up the lens.

bottom line is that it makes little to no sense to me that it would play dvds and not cds. i would assume that they both use the same lens to read the device.

I have a technics dv 280 system and have a problem with the DVD player. There is a ghosting on the image when I play a DVD. I've tried cleaning the DVD lens with a dvd disc cleaner but this does not seem...

Hi Donna. I would recommend replacing the Video cable that connects the Technics to your TV. Sounds like the cable was damaged during the move. Hope this helps you out.

No Disc

Stumpy, I think the first step could be to find out between the DVD player and the disc which one has a problem.If the DVD Player is able to play other discs then it is possible the problem is with the disc only. If that disc can be played quite alright in other DVD players then the problem is with your DVD Player. I suggest you trial that first. I think the indication of " No disc insert disc" could be that your DVD Player is failing to load or read the disc either because the disc has some scratches or because your DVD Player lens are not powerful enough. I am, Letsthank.
