Re: DVD player keeps skipping and gets very blocky...

It sounds like the problem is with the DVD's you've been playing. I've gotten those problems before, but not on every DVD. How many different ones did you try playing?

Sometimes my tv says incorrect disk when I'm trying to watch a DVD. And sometimes it skips with a brand new disk. How do I fix it?

If you do not have a good disk cleaner, I would suggest you use one. Some disks wont play if the lens has film or dirt. There is a kit you can get at Radio Shack, Best Buy, or even Walmart. It is a wet dry system, couple of drops of alcohol, and you clean your dvd player. It has audio on it and you can follow the directions. They also advise after 10 hours of use to do a disk clean up on your system I also do my CD players too, Also on your PC. Hope this helps.

My DVD player keeps freezing and skipping scenes.

Try cleaning the optical pickups you can either take covers off and use isopropyl solution with a clean cloth to clean mirror or you can try a cd/dvd cleaning disc from most electronic retailers.

When I play a DVD, the picture is green with some blue accents

First check the cable from the dvd to the tv, if it only happens when you use the dvd player then it is the lead that is the problem, unplug the lead from both blow any dust of both the connectors and plugs, then replace them ensuring they are in as tight in as possible on both, if you still get the same problem i suggest getting a different cable and trying that.
The other thing that could coarse this is the lense inside the dvd, get hold of a dvd lense cleaner and give that a try, also clean the dvd disk itself.

Venturer lcd tv with dvd

That may mean no disk is inserted or the player can't read the disc

Cleaning the DVD player with a DVD laser lense cleaner.


If your disc it's self is dirty use a cleaning kit like this one below


THESE PRODUCTS ONLY WORK IF YOUR DISC is not scratched and does not require a full repair.

I am not sure but maybe purchase a DVD cleaner kit for the player around $10. USD, and make sure the DVD itself is clean and without scratches. Also, try dvd player on another tv to see if it is OK. Other than that input settings. I do not know of any inherent design problems in the unit. Have you tired their web site?

DVD Player won't read

I have to disagree with the previous answer you got. It's a common scenario that someone uses his DVD player to play CD's and then the point is lost. DVD players DO get plagued with dusty lenses, same as any other disc player. If you can get to the lens its worth a try, but from your post it seems that you should take it to a pro lab. I say this because you'll have to open the TV chasis to get there, and TV's are just about the most dangerous home appliance to mess with. Touch the wrong spot, even when plugged out, and you can get bit by enough voltages to kill. Take care and good luck
