Proline LVD198W DVD player not working

I have a Proline LVD198W and the DVD does not work when a disc is inserted into the drive. This is the second time this is happening and it is now out of warranty.
Please can you advise what I can do or where I can get this repaired. I live in Hertfordshire. A mate of mine said to buy a DVD cleaner this may solve the problem. Thanks in anticipation of your response. Toks

SOURCE: Plays CDs but not DVDs

Melisha, I had a similiar problem. Go into the onscreen menu with the remote using the "ACTION" button on the bottom left of the remote. Using the arrow keys in the center of the remote, move to the menu for the audio processing. It will have menu items for DTS, Dolby Digital etc. Change the menu parameters for the "Down conversion" to "yes", get out of the menu mode and see if your DVD works again. If not, make sure there is no DVD or CD in the player, and press the "open/close", "pause" and the double left pointing arrow buttons all at the same time for about 5 seconds until the display on the DVD player says "INITIALIZE". This resets your machine. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: DMR-EZ48V- DVD drive not working

Check for Firmware updates. If it has a reset button reset it. Take off the cover remove dust and lint, also clean laser eye with rubbing alcohol. DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE LASER LENS IF YOU PLUG IT IN, DURING THE OPERATION.

SOURCE: DVD player cannot read DVD disc.

Have you tried other DVD's in this unit and they work? If so it might be just an incompatibility issue with that DVD in your TV.

SOURCE: Unit plays video but not DVD. Once inserted, disc

Sorry but the 'NoRead' error is usually the result of the DVD-RAM drive failing or it has failed, in which case a replacement drive is the only solution - $450 for a new drive - plus labour on top = more than the whole unit is worth new. Not only that, but the service agents will probably need to upgrade and reconfigure software as well, then there is the prolonged and exhaustive soak-testing...

I believe for similar money, you could get a Panasonic DMR-EZ48V with 24 month (or optional extended warranty - extra 3-4 years) on all parts and labour (compared to spending the same on repairs to your EZ47V) or you could save those pennies and invest in perhaps a better more reliable brand and model of DVD recorder (if that's what you want to use). You could also try (for zero cost) a cleaning and checking procedure (if unit is not under warranty) found within FixYa and similar websites. Good luck in your venture!

The player will read dvd but will not play cd

Richard: This is what said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    When I insert a disc I get a "Disc Error" after

    Most DVD players display that kind of error when unable to read data on you disc media. Try other DVD disc if that post the same problem. A new one will test if it is the unit problem or the media disc problem. If it post the same problem on a disc that runs well on other players then your player probably has a dirty lens. You can clean the lens using commercially available DVD lens cleaner on the market.

    The dvd player is not working. It says that the playback on the disk may not work. Is there any way to fix this


    The most common reason for the player not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

    This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your player including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your player going again!

    DVD disappeared in DVD Player after viewing movie

    Get the dummy cd disc, put a blue tac on it. Insert it. Then after few seconds, eject it. Your dvd disc should stick with it when they came out. It worked for me and hope it will work for you.

    If it reaeds the cleaner... then try another disc. 20-30 seconds is a long time to looad a disc...
    If the new disc does not work either , I would suggest resting the deck .
    If reseting does not help , it is still under warrantee. so have it serviced.

    Unlock LG DVD

    The following hack worked for my player. It works for most LG and Aiwa players too. To hack the player try this:
    • Power on player with no disc inserted and wait for "No Disc" message on screen
    • (using the remote) Press PAUSE
    • Press the numbers 314159 in order. (player should now show "COdE - -" the same as below)
    • Press the number of the region you desire ( 0 = any region, 1 = US&Canada etc.)
    • Press PAUSE
    • Power off the player for a few seconds..power back up and insert your DVD disc
