Re: dvd will not play

Either the disc is wrong format for player or it is extremely dirty. Clean off with windex or some other type cleaner. Also, will it play an audio CD? Let me know and we can go from there. GURU JAY

I have a Harman Kardon 435 receiver hooked up for 5 channel surround sound. Receiver will start out fine playing off dvd, but then will inevitably "lock up" and I can't do anything including change source,...

I would perform a firmware update, but that does not sound like a problem that is easily fixed if the reset procedure does no fix things.

I'l ask HK next time i talk to them, I have never had this happen on a 435 yet.

DE 445 flashes "protect" and sound goes off when loud noises play on DVD

Check your speaker connections at the back of the receiver and at the speakers. You have a short. If you don't see anything obvious, disconnect your speakers at the receiver and play a dvd and turn up the volume. If it stays on, you have a wire or a speaker problem. If it cuts out , you have a DSP chip problem. Reconnect speakers one by one and test each speaker until it cuts off or you have fixed the problem. If you still have issues, post a comment and I can help you some more.

I put a disc (dvd) in and it will start saying it's reading the disc and then will tell me no disc is inserted. CD's play well and so do picture DVD's. But no movies. The movies are brand new and not...

Picture dvds are read with different software than that required to play movies. Make sure that you actually have dvd player software installed on your system, like WindDVD or Power DVD. See this link for a few.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Receiver shuts off when trying to play a dvd in the dvd player.

Just a hunch - what's drawing power from the two convenience outlets on the back of the receiver. They're only rated for 120watts, that is, nothing like a TV.

I doubt this has anything to do with the source you're playing (unless you have it cranked to "11"). If I understand you correctly you said turning the TV on and off causes the problem. There's a clue.

My Technics SL-DV290 stereo has stopped playing dvd/cds, it just says 'no read' when it initially scans dvd/cd prior to play Please help!

This means that the unit can tell that a disc is present, but can not read it. Try opening up the top and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Let us know if that resolves the problem.
