    My player is for region 2 but has been programmed for all regions. In fact it is one particular disc that I have problems with. I have just recontrolled the player, it plays all regions, less the disc I put in for control and the disc, I have a problem with, which are both Region 2. Can it be that it won't play a double-layered disc? However the DVD I used for control won't play either, and I've had no trouble before. Downloaded DVDs also play without trouble.

A few things to check

The DVD is within your own region
If it is burnt the format is compatible
The DVD is clean i.e. No scratches
Try several different DVD's purchased from different places to confirm that it is not reading

Let me know how it all went;

Regards,

    Hi,

    see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
    Does
    the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing
    noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the
    disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path
    inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by
    an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

    Totally
    silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from
    the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is blind for lack of a
    better word.
    This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by
    foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a
    marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also
    be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

    You
    could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as
    far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover
    off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a
    very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings
    to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust
    accumulating but it is still better to give it a try.

    If you see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

    check on the small shafting that
    guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and
    solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser
    eye then fails to read the next track.

Check disc error


When you get a please check disc error when playing a DVD in your DVD machine, this is a signal that the lens of the DVD machine is getting weaker. I would ask you to try and play a CD in that machine. If it plays that means the lens of your DVD machine is weak. You have to change or purchase a new DVD machine.

Dvd player refuses to read any disc I load into the machine


Hello I was looking to try and help you with your DVD player, we will start by loading a music cd store purchased, no burned cds please, if the cd loads and plays then your dvd player is either out of adjustment or going bad, most dvd players, i have worked on, will load and play a music cd, but will show loading errors when trying DVD's. If the music cd dosen't load then there could be an issue with the drive or tray. If the music cd plays just fine, then your laser is either out of adjustment or going bad. You can call the manufacuter to see if there is a process for resetting the DVD player, not all DVD players have this option, if resetting the DVD player dosen't work, but music cd's do then your laser lens is dirty or going bad. At this point you have three options 1) Take it to a repair shop, 2) Get an new one, 3) Get your hands dirty if your really handy and know what your doing to clean and replace the laser. I hope I can be of further assitance and I look forward to helping in the future, Thank You and have a nice day.
