    i have a similar problem. my dvd player used to play everything just fine. after 6 months some purchased dvds weren't playing and now a month later no dvds are playing. it will still play all divx files so clearly the lense is fine. is there a setting that i've accidently changed or an update i don't have? i can't find anything and im out of ideas. the wife's a real movie junkie and when she doesn't get her fix its like living in HELL!!!!!

    When I insert a DVD the screen says 'loading' and then nothing happens. After several seconds, it automatically ejects. I have read the manual (no help offered), searched on line for advice (found nothing) and am searching for a solution. I bought this almost 3 years ago and it was expensive so I would like to find a solution.

Same problems, I live in subtropics - heat and humidity.
From net search: optimal pick-up unit has 2 laser diodes and 2 objective lenses. If diodes are weak or not aligned with objective lenses then wrong signal/information is read (- or not read). Therefore unit cannot read disc properly.
I think just cheap parts and poor manufacturing - for a limited life span - "our throw away culture" - long live global warming.
BUT the player on my PC works just fine though???

I had the same problem twice now, I am on here looking for replacement parts this time. The last time I had this problem I took the VCR apart and found a small round piece just floating around inside the case. I took out the DVD player and placed the small round piece back on the small silver post in the middle of the DVD player angled side up. Hope this helps. This time it’s something different for me.

Panasonic DVD-S31 won't play sound

Did you change the audio cable, "just to rule out" If it won't work on the Tv or stereo, there probably is a audio processor problem, or a issue with the laser pickup assembly, to repair this kind of problem would not justify the cost.

Do I need a remote control to control the Philips magnavox model DVD 815AT. It plays the commercials on the video disc. When it comes to playing the movie, it keeps repeating itself and it won't go...

Usually most DVD's play movie trailers and sometimes advertisement before the movie will play. Once the ads or trailers are done it should go to the menu screen and at that point "play" or something like that should be underlined. If it is you can press play or select on the DVD player then the movie should start : )

We have a GO DVD+VCR model No. DV2140. We cannot

If you are trying to play blue ray on this unit you are out of luck no amount of firmware will make it play something it is not capable of doing.

Dvd player, hd dvd movies

If this is just a regular DVD player, then no. You need an HD DVD player to play HD DVD discs. Now the HD DVD players should play regular DVD discs.

Won`t play disney movies

Apparently this is a known issue. Some dvp642 players have compatibility issues with some of the Disney DVD's. A firmware update might help. There is a discussion of this at:
