The problem isnt so much the disc, more to do with what format has been used to create them.
That is to say its the language used to write the information to the disc. Some machines read more programme types than others. Likewise older machines tend not to be able to read newer language types. Confusing I know, but thats the way it is .Hope this helps

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Two possibilities:

  • dirty laser/lens, try a CD disc cleaner;
  • regional restriction. Most DVD players are restricted to play in a single region. Although some are multi-region capable, others would be required be enable to accommodate other regions. To this, pls postback the exact model number and your general location (region).
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Dvd won't load model pet941d/37


The laser pickup overtime becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc. Take some rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip and gently clean the lens, allow several minutes to dry, if no change! the whole assembly needs to be replaced, not cost effective to repair.

Hi,my sanyo dvd player model 7201 won't play dvds only cd why is that? When i insert a dvd it says no reading????


Your problem may be due to unsupported media - such as using Dual Layer disks, or a data type that is not recognized - such as Divx.

Videohelp.com maintains a database of DVD players and their limitations. Limitations are in the form of acceptable media, data format saved to the media, etc. Additionally, there are some 40 individual comments on this player, too. There's far too much info to paraphrase here, so I'll direct you to your player via this link.

I think that once you know what types of media and format of the data your player can read, you'll be in good shape. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Other Region codes for Samsung DVD 1080PK


Region code hack posted by anindo_roy, January 09 2009:
I bought a Samsung DVD player 1080PK in Bangalore recently (Jan 2009) and initially it was coded only for region 5 (India). I went through the following steps (which were told to me by a Samsung technician) to make it region free. This steps match closely to the one posed by another viewer so I have retained the same format.
1) Turn on the player with no disc in the tray
2) Press the Open/Close button to open the tray
3) Press the info button, the firmware version shows up
4) After the version info disappears, close the tray again by pressing the Open/Close button
5) At this point, it will show "no disc" at the top. Press the Info button again, and this will disappear.
6) Locate the Repeat A-B button on the remote, which in my case was ‘9’
6) Now type the code that applies for your region (R5 (India) is 53814) followed by 9 (Repeat A-B button) and then press the Enter button. So enter 538149 and then Enter. A last few digits ‘4’ and '9' may briefly show up at the top left corner.
8) Power off the player, and turn it on again. You'll have a multi region player
Region Code for the 1080PK hack:
R1 - 29334
R2 - 57538
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462
This worked for me after a couple of tries.

My Sanyo DWM-400 plays some DVD's and won't play others.


I bought another DVD player. I found out that all DVD's don't play on all DVD brands of players. They are cheap enough these days so I decided it wasn't worth a repair bill. The Sanyo DWM-400 plays many of my store bought DVD's and not others. I never tried a home made DVD in it so I don't know how it responds.
