I'm guessing you are from US. First you should try to clean the DVD reading eye. there are aid kits in most of the music/movie stores. must chances that it will solve your problem. if the problem appears in some DVD and not all make sure that: 1. The DVD disk are clean 2. You DVD player can read the DVD format. For repair person you can try Fixya repair directory - appears on the right bar - help you find repair man in your area. also most of them will give you free estimation about the cost. According to the cost you will be able to know if it worth repair. Hope it was helpfull

DVD player loads then stops and says no disc, havent used it in about 4 years ,how do i get it to play dvd, tried to set up like it says but must be doing something wrong

Tries to play more than one DVD disc.Tries to play many DVD disc should be original DVD disc ok no DVD+R copying disc ok.If ur are still getting signal just saying loading signal awhile than say no disc show up, and u did playing it with many dvd original disc.Than the DVD player laser eye reader could be ditry.Tries websites like, to buy a DVD disc set that said like DVD players lasers eyes cleaners.Used it as directions said,if u still getting the same result mean ur DVD player laser eye reader it is dead,not worth repairing the DVD player if the DVD player laser eye reader it it dead,because the laser eye reader it is 90% important to the DVD player unit and the cost of it by replacing it will cost the same as a new DVD player unit.

Porable dvd plays in black and white

This could be that you are using NTSC or american region DVDs or the connections that you are using if you use a SCART to composite video incorrectly then you will get a B&W signal into your TV

I've tried all the tips. Do you know where I can

It's not operating perfectly. It doesn't always load the DVD on the first try. But once it's loaded, it plays through okay. I just kept moving the laser unit back and forth and cleaned the lens as recommended. I got the unit to where it would keep trying to load the disc and finally it recognized the DVD and started playing.

Denon 2800 dvd player

Standard dvd players are pretty cheap. Hardly worth repairing. Under one hundred dollars in a lot of place and I have seen new ones on ebay for under fifty dollars after shipping. Your model sells for about 60 -115 on ebay used.
