SOURCE: 32lg40 built in dvd player disk error

There definatley could be a firmware issue with that TV's DVD player if the model has just been released.  My suggestion would be to bring a couple of known to be working DVD's back to the store and try their floor model as well.  This will be easier than bringing back the TV for the second time.  If this is a problem with the DVD player's firmware, LG should be able to fix it under warranty so I would call them or swap out the TV for another brand instead.

SOURCE: dvd wont read discs dvd or cd

is the drive still recognised by the system of the tv? If so it may simply be a dist situation (that's what happened tro me recently) unless it was jolted heavilly just before it froze. I asume other disks won't read either. You could try a dvd cleaning disk but I found them to be pretty **** and an aerosol cleaner works a lot better. Get one from an electrical component supplier or even some department stores stock them. Be sure to use the right product, i.e. for blowing dust out of electrical systems, as you don't want to go spraying just anything in there. A friend of mine once used a car 'easy start' to try and do a similar job and he ended up buying a new cd player (it was an in car player). Like I said it worked for me.... I was ignoring my intuition for ages looking to get components replaced etc. Finally I gave in and ended up kicking myself for not having listened earlier!!!

If your TV has an HDMI input, and your external DVD player has one, then you can easily connect them.

Connect dvd player element tv


Yes if the set has a set of audio/video jacks(a rear or side input) and that would be cheaper than fixing the player in the set.

We have the 40 inch flat screen with built-in DVD player, and have been well satisfied until recently.The DVD player won't allow a disc to be inserted. Though it is empty, the mechanism seems stuck and...


That will be a lot of work since you will have to open up the TV and get access to the DVD drive assembly, then you will have to disassemble the DVD drive to find out where the problem is.
This is the reason I will never own TV with built-in DVD, you will not have the TV while the whole TV is being repair due to fail DVD drive.
The repair can be from $150 and up plus parts.
You will be better off buying an external DVD player.

DVD player not working, only used a few times AKAI lct32z4adp 32"lcd tv with built-in dvd player


Unfortunately they are a real bare to fix. Unless its a jammed disc it is probably a defective transport. If it is under warranty have it repaired otherwise get an external DVD player.

Sorry I don't know of any easy fix for the integrated units.

Cheers

Built-in DVD player


Are you trying to play DVD's you've made or copied yourself or new one's you buy from an actual distributor? Because sometimes self-ripped Cd's & DVD's won't play on a LOT of DVD players. Otherwise it's bad DVD player and you should go get it swapped out if it's not too late.
