Insert a dvd and it says "loading..." forever then says "wrong disc". used to be able to keep opening then closing the drawer and it would finally work...now it wont work at all. some discs play right away, some play after a few tries, and others wont play at all. tried cleaning both disc and player; neither of which work.

Re: dvd's not playing
This might be a problem with the alignment of the actual laser in your device. You mentioned that you cleaned the player? Question, how? The reason I ask is because if you used alcohol and canned air you many have left a residue on the laser facet which would cause such a problem. I would suggest that you use an apporved fiber optic cleaning solution and attempt to clean the laser, (it is best to let a pro do this). Then check the laser alignment and power with a laser power meter.

eject the cd tray and use canned air to clean the inside of the cd/dvd unit, just use stick the nozzle near the opening and give it a through dusting. after that, run a cleaning disc through it a few times.
if that doesn't clear up the problem, the dvd player will need to be serviced, most likely either a lens replacement or re-alignment.
You play some music cd, then let the dvd cool down, you do it enough times the condensation will be gone and DVD can then be played. You use remote to keep it on standby, then condensation problem will be gone forever. I have the same model and fixed it this way.
The most common reason for the DVD not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:
This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your DVD plate, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your DVD including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your DVD on your TV Combo going again! Hope this help...
check the type of discs that are recognized with your dvd player. Some machines recognize dvdr- some dvdr+ some dvdrw+/- you may be using the wrong formated type of disc.Look at disc and see what type it is in the ring surrounding the hole especially if it is a copy
HI,. this is a lens assembly fault. the lens is malfunctioning or, it may have stopped reading. this wrong disc code is just a universal warning that is concerning a fault if the main boarddoesn'treceive any data(audio,video) when the disc is inserted.
Due to the integrated status of your unit, this will be a costly repair because, the entire assembly is combined together with the vcr section as well.
You will need to replace the entire assembly to fix this issue. the lens has burned out.
you can confirm my diagnosis by preforming a cleaning of the lens with a cleaning disc. if the unit continues to not read or play a CD after the cleaning, this will confirm my diagnosis.
Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.
I've found it works after the set has warmed up. I don't know what the problem is. The other thing is I will just keep ejecting - just hit the eject button over and over - open/close etc and after a while it plays. It's REALLY annoying
