If it's a DVD/VCR machine, put a videocassette in the VHS slot after you have already put a DVD in the DVD slot. Switch your remote control temporarily from DVD to VCR and press "Play". The videocassette will start playing. Then, without stopping the cassette, switch the remote back to DVD. The menu should now be on the screen. This always works for me.

Same problems with my unit.  But, try this... I think it worked.  First, you can not get to the setup screen for the unit with a DVD in the player.  So, remove the DVD first:  Unplug the unit, wait a few seconds, plug it back in.  Then hit the DVD open button and remove DVD in player. 

 

I think the issue with not reading certain DVDs is a problem with the "parental control" on the unit. Without setting parental control there were a few DVDs I could not play and sometimes (not always) I was asked about parental control before a movie would play.  At the Sony Blue DVD screen, select Setup on the remote control.  Select DVD setup and get to Parental control.  Set a password.  This will then take you to a "rating" screen.  By setting the rating very high (I set mine for #8) any movie should play without needing the password.  With no password set, you can not change the "rating" and hence mine was set at #1 (kids).  It seems to have worked for now anyway.  Good luck.

What could be the problem if a dvd won't play on my dvd player.


For a start, try to read the DVD on a computer. Press on CD/DVD on right button's contextual menu for exlpore. If the computer can open and list the DVD, try to play it with VLC player.
If you have problem reading the DVD disk, it's it. If you can read, it's your player

Trouble with Dvd player in Dell Inspiron 530


Find the small pin hole on DVD player and use a straightened paper clip to manually eject in case there is a stuck disc.

Use system restore to roll back your system. Look for a restore point longer than the three days.

I don't see a correlation between the two because the system should work even you don't have an optical drive (CD\DVD).

My phillips dvd player (model DVP5990) is not reading disc at all no matter the format. any ideas?


This could be several problems. You should first try to clean the laser head with a cleaning disc. If this does not work you can try resetting the dvd player to the factory settings. This function is found in the settings section under preferences. Use you remote control to open the settings menu and use the up and down arrows to highlight the preferences section. Press ok to enter the sub-menu. Use the up and down arrows to highlight the default setting.Press ok. You have now reset the dvd player to the factory settings. Press the menu button again to escape the menu. All this information is in the owners manual on page (47). Try a dvd to see if the dvd player is working properly. If not you may have other problems that will require you to open the dvd player up to find the problem. These problems could be a laser lens that is not functioning properly or a problem with the transport that is use to set the dvd up for reading by the laser lens. For these problems it is best to have a qualified technician to troubleshoot the problem.You can call phillips customer support at this telephone number 1-800-744-5477. Tell them the model number of your dvd player and the problem you are having with disc player not reading discs. They will be able to help you get service for the dvd player.I hope this information helps you with your problem.

My first guess would be that the projector can't sync to the DVD player after the reading stage. If correct, you should be able to change the settings on the output of the DVD player.
