DVD Player Problems

I have 7 of these units in my dental office. a couple of them no longer play DVDs. Is it possible to change out the DVD player? Or is that usually not the problem? I got them cheap, refurbished at e-Cost.com a few years ago. I know that combo units usually aren't recommended, but I got them for space saving. When I saw them at Costco, that gave them some credibility.

    I have one at home. I'll bring it to the office tomorrow and use the canned air also. If it doesn't do the trick, I'll repost. Thanks.

While it is possible to replace dvd player you must look at the life left on unit. You purchased them refurbished so they have been in service a long time. I would not think it would be cost efetive to rebuild them again.

My suggestion new tech flat screens with hi def input low cost external dvd player w remote.
Player crashes few years keep flat screen buy new player.

Of course your existing LCD have video inputs nothing stopping you from buying external DVD players for them..
Walmart under $50.00each or surf online package deal.

Please rate if this helped.

Hi

Are the TVs working fine?Generally Akai parts are not easily available as its parts are made in Taiwan and India so you can only get them at Authorised Akai Service Centers.

We have two Pioneer DVD V7400s that won't play DVDs. They can, however, play CDs. Bad laser?


Hi, My guess is that the DVDs are not compatible with the DVD player. They must be windows compatible. WMA or WMV (MP4 format) or (avi) Make sure the your DVD player is indeed a DVD player and not a CD player. Good luck.

Just bought an ONN dvd player and will not play burnt dvds. It says it will play DVD-R/RW. Any ideas to why it won't?


Burn your dvds in a proper way. If you burn your dvds as data dvd, it may not work on certain dvd players. Try different software or different PC to burn your dvds. Check the region code of your dvd player & the dvds burnt. They should match. You may find some region-free players.

What is the country code for australia - lg dvd recorder


The geographical regions are as follows:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

Hope this information is useful to you.

Cannot play dvds from UK


one possible reason is the region code that your dvd player supports. if your DVD player does not support multi-region codes like 02 for UK, you'll really have this issue. make sure any DVD that you try to play has a region supported by your player.
