Re: coby dvd-224 "loading"

If everything else seems to be functioning, try using your remote to reset the TV. There is a setting to switch the TV from being a TV to being a screen, or monitor, for the DVD player. What the button is labeled varies by manufacturer. It may be: TV/DVD, input, source, display, or something else. Display, for instance, displays the choice on the screen. Highlight and select DVD or perhaps the brand name of the DVD player.

I have 2 dvd players that have gone out on me this week. One does not read the disk and the other door won't open. Is there a lens cleaner for dvds that might work:

The Coby 224 is a bottom of the line "piece of cheap Chinese crud". No offense, but this is a DVD player that costs more to ship it over here than it does to manufacture the product. Purchase something a bit more substantial for continued dvd viewing.

DVDs Wont play

Check the specs on your dvd player. Not all players will read dvd-r discs. Some players will only read commercially produced dvds. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

My dvd player says "wrong disc" for all dvds

Sounds like the DVD/Blue ray laser has gotten dust on it.

I would go to your local electronics store and purchase a cleaning disk. They are normally under $10. Insert it and run it though the player.

This sound no more serious than a dirty read laser.

The lasers are sometimes weak on the Coby DVD players. They can easily be scratched or become dirty. You can try to get a DVD lens cleaner or try and wipe it off with a very soft cloth. Do not use toilet paper or paper towels because they can leave particles on the lens and even scratch it worse than it is. If that does not work the lens can be completely scratched or the DVD can be scratched and can not be read.

Coby 224 Screen Slowly Fades to Dark and Back To Light

Usually if your getting it with the MENU then your connection is weak, are you going through a VCR or some other type of device besides directly to the tv? Try hooking unit directly to the tv. Besides that, its possible you could of messed with the settings, go to the menu, go to advanced and do a reset to make sure no settings were adjusted, the disk has to be out of the tray while you do the reset.

Coby 224 wrong disc

you can reset the settings through the menu, its under the advanced option in the menu. however, its not a regional error, if it was in the wrong region, it would say wrong region and not wrong disk, try putting the region back to 1 or 0 or 9, 1 is USA, 9 and 0 are all regions.

Wrong disc problem

This is a known problem - there is no fix - if you call coby customer service they will tell you to try a dvd lens cleaner -this will not fix the problem. Best advise - throw it away.
