It will depend on the DVD player, but...

There is a switch on the bottom that locks the laser in place, so it doesn't move. The purpose is to keep from damaging it when it is shipping. Take a look on the bottom, or possibly the back and you'll find the switch.

Decoding error comes up on my in-dash dvd player in my truck. how do i fix that? possible loose wiring or weak solder points?

Your dvd player may have been set to PAL rather than NTSC (or vice versa, I don't know where you live) You may also have region settings locking you out. For example North America is Region 1, so Region 2 won't play on R1 players. If you mean to say that dvd's play fine, but occasionally stop and display this error than what you have is an overly sensitive laser and a not to smooth ride. By law indash DVD players for autos cannot play while the car is in motion, soooooo they don't make the laser tracking very good, since you're supposed to be sitting still anyway.

Try doing a hard reset.To do a hard reset unplug all the cords from the back of the unit for 4 hours,even the power cord.After 4hours. plug in all the cords again and then turn on your player.This should fix the issue.

I had the same problem. Turned out the Child Lock was on. Push the Child Lock button on the remote (it's below the 0 key) and that should fix the problem.

Don't know what that code means but....
On my DVD-LV50, I was able to re-initialize and fix a different error (error code H05). It might work for you, too.

With no disk in the player, press and hold these buttons for 4 seconds:
  1. Back skip -- [ |<< ]
  2. Pause -- [ || ]
  3. Play -- [ > ]
The screen will go blank, then say "Initialized."

After that, it worked like new.

I hope that helps.
