    The solution you gave was obvious. However sometimes we don't see what's in front of our face. I bought a cleaner and will try it when I get a chance. However I did read many reviews on the Magnavox MDW456 and they were all pretty negative. So maybe the DVD player just sucks?

Get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. Chances are, it has never been cleaned.

    About 90% of the problems with CD/DVD.Game platforms are related to lack of preventive maintenance. Cleaning the lens and keeping the vents clean prevent so many problems that masquerade as something else.



    I've cleaned circulating fan filters on a high speed, multi station sorting machine. The manufacturer wanted $6,000 to try to fix it. They said it sounded like the logic was fried and needed replaced. I took care of it with an air hose.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

My factory DVD player will except disc the ejects it


If I understand your rather cryptic post correctly...

This very well could be a Blue-Ray disk loaded into a
non-Blue-Ray capable DVD player. Your car player's capabilities MUST match the disc, otherwise, the disc won't play.

I've run into this very same problem with my home DVD players. Which both are non-Blue-Ray capable, but I was able to verify the Blue-Ray discs on my PC.

DVD player wont eject dicks or play just say's disc error


You need to insert dicks into the DVD player, also, once it ejects the dicks, you should wait 20 minutes or so before attempting to eject more dicks.

Lock message


Hi!
My DMR-ES10 appears since last month, the same message, and lets myself crazy!


Today, after a desperate try, pressing the buttons, I found the solution:

Simple press the POWER BUTTON and STOP BUTTON of the unit for a few seconds...

VOILá: The UNLOCK message appears in the display and the unit return to operate without the lock message !!!

For Lock again, press the same buttons at same way until appears the Lock message in the display.

This is an undocumented command...

I hope to help you!
