Re: When playing DVD no sound but VCD sound OK.

Dvd are up to 6 times the density of a cd there making the laser eye read much closer rings on the disks. so in other words its having a hard time reading dvd. the only thing you can do is take a cotton swap dipped in alcohol and open the tray look with a flashlight for a small optical eye in exact center of dvd player and rub lightly on it to remove dust build up or spray some canned air into the dvd youll hit it. try it again and if no sound again the computer cant keep up with the dvd or vise versa.

Won't play DVD , it plays VCD, CD , AM , FM

All DVD players use a twin laser pickup. One wavelength is for CD/VCD and the other is for DVD.The one that is used more often tends to fail first. Typical life span is about 750 to 1000 hours. If you have crossed this limit the Bose must be due for a replacement. Even if you have not crossed this limit the laser could have failed . They are unpredictable at times.

Kenwood DVD player 5 speaker system

There is nothing wrong with it, it is set to only play in the region it was purchased from. That is how all DVD players are made, with regional settings. No repair is going to help, you just need a DVD player from the proper region to play those disc's.
