Hello, I'm here try and help your problem, first older DVD players only read certain disc formats, If you have your owners manuel to your DVD player it will tell you what types of discs the DVD player will play. There are seneral types of burnable disc's DVD -, DVD +, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, please looking in the owners manual for the types of discs that the player will read, also in the same secton it will tell the types of formats that it will read DVD Video, DVD ROM, and there is a few others, Next is when you burn DVD's the type of burner you have makes a difference. You will need to find out what format your DVD burn, burns to disc, some of the newer DVD players
read alot of the formats. I would start by finding out what your DVD burns first, then I would suggest buying a DVD player that will read that format. If you have anyother questions please feel free to post them, Thank You and have a great day.

My Hitachi DVD P315 player opens and can accepts DVD's, however, it says that DVD is not being read. In short the DVD is not reading the disc. Please help...


hi,
You have to check the laser pickup unit of you dvd player. In your dvd palyer the laser pickup unit is faulty. There are two lasers in DVD players laser unit. One for reading the DVD and the other for reading the CD. In your player the DVD laser is faulty. As it is one module you have to replace the laser pickup unit as a whole. You will get it from any electronic spare part shope near to you. As a whole i mean Normally laser pickup units come with its mechanism like in the picture . May have slight difference with your one. picture is only for reference. Its part number will be written on the bottom side of the laser unit. you have to take the laser unit as sample when you are going to buy the same. If it is reading cds it is sure that the laser pickup is faulty. Its a regular complaint to dvd palyers. To replace the laser pickup you have to remove the cd loader and have to remove connections to it.
ok

I have a Hitachi DV-DS163A it will play cds but


Hello,

how long have you been using the player. The problem is from the lens (laser) of your player, its too weak to play DVDs. That is, the power of the lens cannot load DVDs anymore.

The lens still loads Cd's, because Cd's don't have much bytes, compared to that of DVD's. The lens needs to be extra active to be DVD's

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, if that does not solve the problem, then its means, the lens needs to be changed completely.

Good luck.

WILL MY DVD PLAY AREA 1 AND AREAV4 DVD'S?


Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
H2H

We have a yamaha dvd player, model number dv-s5450 and it won't play our dvds. Sometimes it works but sometimes it won't even read them, tried cleaning lasers with laser cleaner and that didn't work any...


I had a similar problem...the machine, which had been great up until then, started to be very fussy when loading a disc; using a lens cleaner did not help at all.

I opened the disc tray and used a can of "air duster" with the straw attachment blowing in lots of air into every little nook and cranny that I could reach, especially in and around the actual lens area. The liquified gas under pressure must have been too cold as, at first, there was no improvement whatsoever when I tried playing a disc. However, the next day the player was working perfectly again.

It is worth a try.
