The player will read dvd but will not play cd

Richard: This is what said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    Coby DVD shows Invalid Disc HELP PLEASE

    Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong

    Wharfedale DVD- 265 saying invalid disc

    Check and see if there is dust or dirt or something on the lens. Dirt, grease and fingerprints will cause a DVD player to have read errors.
    If it a new player, or under warranty, get it replaced. It sounds like it is failing.

    Hope that helped.

    I think you can reset by pushing a pen into reset hole on face (remove stereo face first.) Or try pushing the screen on all four corners at once. HTH!

    Disc region incorrect

    Power up, no disk in. Status says READ then INSERT DISC.
    Press MENU (status reads invalid key icon)
    Press 1 (status reads invalid key icon)
    Press 9 Menu is displayed.
    Press ENTER on the region, digit turns to "-"
    Press 0
    Press ENTER again
    Press EJECT to clear the special menu.

    PS If you're gagging to get at this and the remote doesn't work, pull out the tab that isolates the supplied button cell in the remote control :-)
