IM HAVING A PROBLEM WITH A COBY DVD PLAYER. WHEN YOU PUT THE DVD IN AND PRESS THE POWER/STANDBY BUTTON IT CHANGES FROM RED TO GREEN. THE DVD STARTS TURNING AND THE TV SCREEN READS LOADING. THEN YOU WILL GET A BLACK SCREEN LIKE THE DVD WAS STARTING TO PLAY AND THEN STOPS AND THE RED STANDBY LIGHT COMES ON AND THE DVD STOPS TURNING. tHIS JUST STARTED RECENTLY. EVEN STORE BOUGHT DVD'S THAT USED TO PLAY WON'T. THERE IS NO EXPLANATION IN THE MANUAL ON THIS. I NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT I CAN DO TO GET IT WORKING. THANKS.

Re: coby dvd player
Do you see the laser light come on when the disk spins if not it has probably lost power or failed, if so sometimes the laser head gets moved to close to the drive mechanism and the motor cant pull it out. i have found several of these that had this problem.

i have a denon 1720 dvd player. When you press the power button it comes on for 3 seconds then the power button turns back red and powers off. If you press the eject button within the 3 seconds the tray opens and the power button stays green. As soon as you close the tray the power agin goes to red. i have a denon 1720 dvd player.

if it does nothing when you push the standby button to make it play the most common problem is the power standby sw is bad. do you know how to use a miltimeter if so test the voltage through the swithc when you press the button.
We have exact same issue.
My husband called Coby.
They said if the red light is on & won't go green, the system is junk. Can return to the store or them.
We are off to buy a new player and it won't be a Coby!
power up. put disc in tray press set up then vol+ vol- vol+ vol- code appears in top right 1 change altering left and right buttons leave on 255 multi region (all discs) press set up.
Turn unit on with remote NO DVD in the tray (mine was closed, but opened might work) Press TITLE then 1 then 9 Gray box will appear in the center of the screen with number 1 in the middle Using up/down arrows change to desired region (0 for REGION FREE)
Im sorry to tell ya that you did all the things I would have suggested, so it sounds like a system control problem or a power supply problem, and if its a good machine then maybe its worth you having a service person look at it?? Most dvd units are not worth it these days, unless there combos or recorders.. Sorry couldnt be of more help.
