Re: dvd player

Any DVD? Check your cabling, the video cable can be damaged or it is very close to a magnetic field such as Hallogen light fixture. Another troubleshooting tests are, change the input on your TV (from input 1 to 2) or test the signal on another TV to display the image. Good luck. Ronni

I have a Zenith I played a dvd an it worked fine - put another movie in the dvd player and was going to watch that one and it never read - screen kept saying 'reading'. I tried another dvd and the...

try using a CD cleaner disk..

How old is the system?
DO CDs work when you try them?
Put a disk in... remembering the position it was in..
Then try to play the disk...
Eject if it does not play and look to see if it has moved to a different position...
If not, there is a motor problem or the laser is not sensing the disk being there.

Have you ever opened up the main box of the system?
Has anyone else been inside it?

If yes, then maybe it is time to do it again to observe if there is movement of the laser pickup..

When playing a DVD, there are red and blue lines that show up on the screen. At first I thought it was a defective DVD but put another in and it showed up again.

The lines could have been caused by quite a couple of issues one could be a faulty lens from the player or the cables which are used in playing or even the screen. Try using a different screen to watch same DVD's if the problem persists then try replacing the cables for connecting to the screen and after that if it still persists then get an expert to check the lens of thee player.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I put a dvd in but the system is not reading it. i've tried other dvds and tried all 5 disc changers, but my system is still not reading any dvds. what is wrong?

Hi, what makes the DVD not to be able to read the inserted DVD's is because the lens of the player is too weak to spin the dvd plate to play.

You will need to use a DVD Lens cleaner to clean up the lens inside the player to clean up dirt disturbing it from not playing any DVD cd.

If after cleaning the Lens and still does not play,you will need to replace the Lens..

Have a nice day..

My home theater system plays cds but will not play dvds, what can I do to fix it, makes a scratching noise when i put dvds in it, but plays fine with a cd.

There is something wrong with the DVD drive assembly inside. If you're brave, take it apart and check on what is making the noise. Also, try using a q-tip to clean the laser head if it's accessible.

If that doesn't help, it's time for a new DVD player.

This is why I always recommend people buy a home theater system without a DVD player built in. The DVD player is the weakest link, and stand alone DVD players can be purchased for as little as $25 depending on if you want upconversion or not.

If you cannot get the DVD player working in your surround system, just replace it with a stand alone DVD player, if you can, check to make sure there are audio inputs on the back of the receiver. If there are no audio inputs on the receiver, you will have to get the entire surround system replaced. If so, purchase a separate DVD player and surround system.

It wont play dvds!!! Help!!! Panasonic SC-HT520

You can try a CD/DVD Cleaner Disk ($3-$5). Some sell for $15, don't know if you'll get better results. If it doesn't work, then you have a laser alignment issue that needs calibrating. The labor is likely to cost more than a new DVD player.

Direct tv hdbox & Plasma TV & DVD SSound system & DVD recorder

Need to make sure you have the red,white,and yellow rca connection cables ran from the samsung dvd player to the red,white,yellow input on the back of the dvd recorder. Once you do that make sure you put your dvd recorder on line 1 input. If you look closely on the back of your recorder it should say line 1 input. If your recorder isn't on that input you can put the recorder on line 1 input by using dvd recorder remote and pushing the input button. Make sure you don't push the tv input button the dvd recorder remote there should be a seperate input button or a way to toggle the inputs on the recorder. Once you verify all that turn on your tv and go to the input on your tv that you watch the dvd recorder on and you should see what your recording on the tv.

Wavey lines

This may be a problem with the TV rather than the DVD. Usually wavy lines are caused by some of the AC signal leaking into the video signal. It is possible that the DVD player power supply is the source of this as well. Check the filter capacitors in the power supply of the DVD player first.
