Our DMX-DVD stopped playing dvds. How do we fix this?

If your DVD player not recogonize DVDs only and it plays audio CDs and MP3 CDs, there is no doubt that its laser pickup unit has damaged and should be replaced sith identical both in type and number. insist on orginal replacement, as Sony uses special type laser units for their EVD drives. Never use a substitute. Its number and other details will be there on its bodey, either laser printed or on a sticker. OK.

Hi i have a sharp hp22 i ham trying to play normal dvds on it ? is that possible

All Blu Ray players that I have dealt with are what is termed "backwards compatible" which means they play Blu Ray, standard DVDs,music CDs,MP3s,recorded CDs and DVDs, etc. yours should have no problem reading and playing back your "normal" DVDs. Good luck !

DVD Player will not play DVDs Audio CDs play fine

Hi, all DVD players use a dual laser package, because the frequency (color) of the light emitted is different for CDs and DVDs. There are two possibilities here, either the DVD laser part of the dual laser package has failed, (most probable), or the connection to the circuit board has failed, (rare, but it has happened). It is always conceivable that there is a fault on the DVD playback part of the board, but this is incredibly rare. The probability of your successfully replacing the laser depends on your skill as an instrument technician.I as a qualified tech would only claim 80% success and lasers aren't cheap.

Plays cds but not dvds

If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

DVD drive does not play or recognize DVDs but does play CDs

Find out what model drive you have and see if there is a firmware update for the drive.. Sometimes they loose there brain and need to be reprogrammed. If that dosent fix your problem, then the laser is on its way out.. Use a different laser to read dvds vs CDs.
