Re: won't open

Try this trick. it worked for me. Using a credit card insert it into the Tray opening to remove the front cover of the CD loader. then using 2 fingers push the tray inwards while pressing the eject button. Do this 3 to 5 times. If this does not fix your problem. Send it for repairs.

Re: won't open

Straighten out a paper clip & push it into the hole near the bottom left of the tray it will manually push the tray out - reboot & it will probably work again - probably is stressed

Jvc dvd player won't open

when you hit the eject button try tapping the top above the disk drive. it may be somewhat stuck. if that doesnt fix it you might have a broken belt or a belt may have come off in it. the belt controls the movement of the drive in and out

Some rented discs won't play becauses of scratches and dirt, if other DVD 'S work it is not your player, but if all won't play try a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions.

My dvd won't play. every dvd i put in, it says bad disc. the vcr works fine. is it time for a new system. i tried a head cleaner and it says bad disc

Not necessarily time for a new one. I would give the DVD player a good cleaning before you consider a new unit. A good cleaning disk with some little bristles on it. Run it through three full times. DVD players are far more sensitive than VCRs and have to be cleaned even two weeks or so. When they get real dirty it can take some fooling with to get the DVD player to even accept the cleaning disk. But if it just won't accept the cleaning disk and you can't watch a DVD in it then it's time for a new one. I had a DVD player one time that took an hour of fooling around with before it got cleaned good enough to play DVDs. Worked for a couple years afterward.

Does anyone know how to de-code or hack a TEAC DV-H500 cd/dvd player. After owning for several years i still can't play or watch many disc's. Many Thanks

This works with some dvd players, don't know if it'll work with yours... With the remote, open the tray... punch in 9,9,9,9...and then enter, and then '0' and hit enter again. This breaks the region code or allows playing of any disk.

Durabrand pdv 702 won's play all disks. will play recorded and some orginal but not all

If it only fails on home made discs the problem lies in how they were burnt.

Playing burnt DVD disks on other dvd players

It is very possible that the head alignment on your DVD recorder is a little out.

Also, make sure that you are closing the session after doing the recording (burn). If the session is not closed, the DVD will not be playable on other players.

Playing recordable dvd

My Emerson won't play anything except DVD Movies, never has, wasn't suppose too. Make your movies in DVD Video format and it will read them fine (unless it's broke). I make movies all the time and play them back in mine. It reads DVD-R, DVD+R, and in duel layered. It will not read RW disks!

Man I've every problem you can imagine with DVD Players. I've found when the disk gets stuck, as long as it's not jammed. You can turn the unit off or unplug it. Plug it back in but DON'T TURN IT ON! Instead hit the eject button and the drive should open the drive without trying to read the disk.

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

Will Not Play CD-Rs Part Deux

Checked specs- YES -supposed to play MP3's. Did you try other MP3 Audio disks in the DVD? You can try the MP3 disk in your computer to make sure it is OK. If it plays in the computer, have to suspect a problem with the DVD unit - probably the converter IC.
