    I put a DVD in the player yet it won't play and none of the buttons on either the player or remote work so I cannot remove the disc.

    We also have experienced this problem numerous times, the entire control system fails for awhile - nothing works but the on/off button. I got the control system to activate again by playing with the mode button on the remote - but I can't tell you that there is a specific sequence. After getting it working again, I have not used the remote at all and it is working with the side unit controls. I believe there is a serious problem with a chip that communicates with the remote and locking everything out until it resets somehow. I also am having trouble contacting Mintek. I can't believe that they are not aware of this problem. If they don't help me out, I can make sure QVC will never carry another Mintek product.

Had the same problem. After a couple of times of removing the DVD player and manuelly removing the DVD I called for a RMA and they fixed it, but they say the problem was that  I had another DVD in the player. ???

I can't get the DVD player to view dvd on tv

DVD player not working with TV By Charlotte Parker 25 Aug 2017
You've got your Sky Box, your TV, your DVD Player and your surround sound; you've also got your digi-box, your DVD recorder, Blu-Ray Player. With all that equipment, if something goes wrong it can be tricky to track down the issue. This article explains why your TV isn't playing DVDs and how to get it sorted out.
Figuring out the problem
Figuring out why your DVD Player isn't working with your TV is a process of elimination, so work through the steps below to figure out the cause of the problem.
The problem could be:
  • The connector cables/connections.
  • The DVD disc itself.
  • The DVD Player's optical reader (the lens which 'reads' the DVDs).
  • The TV.

The connector cables/connections

Before doing anything, check all your connector cables. Make sure that all connections are in properly, and that the cables are in the right place.
One of the most important connections is the cable that runs between your TV and the DVD Player. If it isn't in place, then your TV can't read the information from the DVD Player and the film won't appear on your TV.

The DVD disc itself

Check for scratches, chips, smudges and any other marks. Test the disc isn't the problem by trying a different one in the player. If the new disc works, then the first one might need replacing.

The TVTry changing channels. Lots of TV's have a default channel specifically for DVD players. Have a look between the channels to see if the DVD menu appears.
On modern televisions, especially those connected to Digi-boxes or Sky Boxes, there's usually a 'Source' button on the remote control. Find it and go through until you reach the right setting for playing DVDs. To go back to watching normal TV channels after the DVD has finished, go back to the source button and change back to the original source.

That should be all you need to know to get your DVD player working with your TV
if none of above works then try putting a lens cleaner through it to try and clean the lens that reads the disc.

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.

I put in a dvd, it starts to read it, and in a couple of seconds it ejects


Hello; There are many laws and rules controlling what you can watch on all DVD players, built into a TV or separate player. If you go buy an MGM or other dvd of some movie at Walmart , Best Buy ETC it should play in your DVD player, But if You or somebody " Burned a DVD" , It Likely won't play. If The DVD is an original store copy and still won't play, the DVD chassis must be replaced. BIG BUCKS. Just buy a Cheap DVD player and plug into the jacks on the back of the TV and save a TON of money. John

Emerson VCR/DVD player - can't get tv (cable tv) to play anymore


I have the same problem with my Emerson VCR. When the ADD button is flashing, just press the menu button to exit the menu. It will add. That's the only thing I know to do. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Can't play dvd player on JVC tv; I don't have a JVC remote.


I hooked up a Pioneer DVD player to my TV and when I play a DVD the volume cannot be controlled by the TV. It just plays at one level and on the louder side. When I'm watching regular TV and the DVD player is on and playing a disc I start to hear the DVD soundtrack at the same time as the whatever I'm watching on TV. I should not be able to hear anything until I switch over to Video 1. Any suggestions?

Recordes but dont play back


before you can watch a recorded DVD on another DVD player you must finalize the disc. to finalize the disc put the recorded disc into the DVD recorder, when the DVD loads it will show the titles that are recorded on the DVD on the screen
push the stop button it is the button with the square on it. the screen will go blank or it may let you watch whatever tv channel you are on if you have your tv ran through the recorder, push the setup buton a new screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight disc edit, press ok another screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight "finalize", press "ok" it is the button in the middle of the arrow keys
scroll up and highlight "yes" press "ok" the recorder will finalize the disc and it can be watched on any DVD player, just remember when you finalize a disc you cannot add anything else to the disc.

DVD player froze, now only turns off


Sounds like the power supply in the dvd player has failed. It works just well enough to turn on the led infront but as soon as you go to do anything it shuts off. This is common in cheaper dvd players. Unless you can troubleshoot electronics. Or know someone that can. Your best bet is to unplug the unit and disassemly and retrieve your dvd.
