Insignia DVD/Cassette combo player

Hi, I bought an Insigina player last year it worked fine untill last month. I dont know what happened all of a sudden DVD player is not working. I did put the DVD and it read the disc and played for about 5secs and stopped and I tried to put the same disc again and again and never worked and it was ejected automatically.But the VCR is playing perfectly fine in the combo. Does any body know how to trouble shoot the problem. Thanks in advance

    The DVD player will only play DVD's I have recorded. I get a DISC error - unrecognized format when I try to play store-purchased (brand new) DVD's.

    I've had mine just over a year, it gets minimial usage, and all of a sudden it keeps getting stuck with a dvd playing or recording. I have to manually power it down by holding in the power button for five seconds. But the problem continues. Should I just junk it? I've unplugged it and tried resetting it, but the problem continues.

I imagine you have checked the disk for scratches top and bottom, if so you can purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner cdrom as the laser may need realigning and cleaning.

FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
