Hi, Its possible that dirt (even just dust) is blocking the eye (optical). You may need to seek the services of a qualified service professional since the unit has to be opened and the optical lens cleaned. Should you venture into doing it yourself, with the power of & unplug, remove the cover lid exposing the inside mechanism and electronics. A sliding bar near a black disc (spindle) would be holding the eye. You need to check/clean the said eye and make sure that no foreign object is on top. Even a speck of dust or a small fiver or hair would cause it to fail reading your DVDs. It is also possible that the sliding bar is stuck at the far end or near the center. Gently shake it loose if it is so. If this does not work, I guess you're back to the first suggestion. Hope this works out for you and give you some ideas. Pls post again how things work out and/or if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again Badjack,
    Based on your new post/description, there is no mechanical problem with your DVD player. One can try is to to go to the setup function via your remote and set your progressive scan mode or sometimes called PScan mode (causes the split screen/display) back to default or off or back to interlace. In your remote it is the bottom right button.
    You may have to consult the your manual for a more comprehensive instruction, It is likewise available online athttp://www.harmankardon.com/product_supp...
    Hope this works out for you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up. Cheers.

How do I fix a grainy/ patchy jumping/skipping dvd.


Hello, Bloody_dark -

Often those who rent DVDs or borrow them from the local public library mishandle them and do not know how to handle them properly.

From your question, it seems the DVDs are either scratched or dirty (possibly with food residue.)

This website gives step-by-step instructions on how to clean the readable side of a DVD:
https://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-DVD

If, after cleaning, the DVD still is grainy, patchy, skipping, etc., it is probably scratched.

What I do when I have a rented or public library DVD which is scratched, I return it with a "sticky note" attached to the DVD box stating it is scratched and that I properly cleaned residue from the readable side of the disc, so that the rental business or the library staff will know that the DVD is damaged and can choose to replace it.

There are ways to remove scratches from DVDs, but I do not recommend anyone try those steps if they do not own the DVDs themselves.

Note: I am a librarian by profession and have seen firsthand how people mishandle DVDs. I'm from the 45-rpm and 33-rpm vinyl record generation. We learned how to properly handle those vinyl records so as not to scratch them. Bottom line: We were taught to only handle the vinyl records (and subsequent CDs and DVDs) by their outer edges. For CDs and DVDs, they can be held between the thumb and forefinger, along the inside and outside edges.

RDR-VX530 will not play DVDs rented from Video store. Set of 3 DVDs, played first DVD will not play DVD 2 or 3. Displays loading message for couple of minutes then ejects DVD. Intermittent problem with any...


When a DVD player starts doing that, it either needs to be cleaned, or something is going wrong with the DVD mechanism inside of it. You can purchase DVD lens cleaner from any large retail store that has an electronics section. However, if you clean it and the problem persists, it will likely be cheaper to replace the unit rather than trying to have it repaired unless you're under warranty in which case any repair or exchange will be covered by said warranty. If you call the manufacturer they will give you your full range of options.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Picture sticks, breaks up repeatedly


Change the location of the unit, this sounds like an overheating problem. It is too close to other units or is enclosed in a tight space. You may also try putting a small fan behind it to cool it down.

My DVD player wont read a disc


There are several things you can do to try and solve your problem: Make sure that the DVDs you try to play are encoded for the right region. Make sure that the transportation lock (usually a plastic screw on the bottom of the unit), is not engaged. Turn off player with disc inserted, unplug temporarily from wall outlet, plug back in and turn back on.
