    How do you go about replacing the laser torch & how much do they cost ? Is it worth the cost ?

  • billyhill_cu Jan 16, 2009

    It does have progressive scan, could it be in the settings ?

    Also, the DVD side worked at first, about the 90 day warranty then it quit working , the VCR side works fine. It reads all discs but movies, I don't get it.

If cleaning of the lens did not help then it is possible that the laser beam torch needs a replacement. Different formats need different strengths of the beam and the torch would need to be replaced.

    If it is a old player I would suggest that you go for a new one with progressive Scan technology. Enquire in places lik Bestbuy and Circuit City. You would get one for around 80 to 100 dollars.

    If it is a new player then get it inspected by a professional. They would open and diagnose what is wrong. By any chance have you meedled with the default factory settings. If so then restore the default settings. If you are unable to , take it to a professional

Unit does not recognize DVD-R and is ejected from the player


You may need to try a DVD+R disc. Some of the players/recorders are REALLY picky.

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :


usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

My DVD tray will not open, and with no disc inside the display says 'reading' constantly. Any thoughts?


The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. I had to do this on my unit and therefore I recommed leaving a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.
