Question about kawasaki SVP500 Multi-disc DVD Player

1 Answer

Opens and closes

The player slides open, but then closes automatically. Then opens and closes on its own until the display says ERROR. Any ideas? Maybe a reset button somewhere.

Re: Opens and closes

Display says BLOCKED and DVD tray wont open anyone any ideas

To open the DVD tray: -
1. Remove Power
2. Invert the player, and look for the slot (about 2.5cm long) near the front of the player under the tray.
3. Shine a light into this slot to locate a white plastic lever
4. Insert a plastic blade an slide the lever to the opposite side of its travel, and the tray will start to open
5. Turn the player the right way up and continue to open the tray and remove DVD
NOTE: Depending on what caused the blockage to be reported, they player may or may not revert to normal operation. If like mine there is an underlying fault, then once power is re-applied the fault will still be reported whenever the tray is closed. In this case the motors that operate the tray are inoperative, and I've no didea why. In fact that's what made me read this website. So I hope you have more luck than me.
Regards, D.

Regional code

4.- PRESS ENTER UNTIL SHOW "Region code: 9" (Region Free)


1-Turn on your DVD player.
2-Open the tray.
3-Press 9 five times, you will see a number (for me it was 6, you'll see it on the screen, where the DVD displays all messages, like a blue bar up top) then I pressed 9 a few more time until the number being displayed there turned to a 9, when it does then press enter, now it's region free.

Error message when reading DVD

Try changing the region setting to region free.

1. Make sure there is no Disc in the tray.

2. Shut off the unit and unplug it from the AC outlet.

3. Press and Hold the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys,
simultaneously on the player and not the remote control.

4. While holding these keys, plug the AC cord back into the outlet. (TEST and CPU ver# will appear on the display)

5. Release the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys.

6. Press DVD Menu twice on the remote.

7. When the display reads s000 5858 use the up and down buttons to change the 000 to 02E.

8. Using the Left and Right arrow buttons, change the last four digits until they read 0000 for Region Free, 0101 for Region 1, 0202 for Region 2 or 0404 for Region 4.

9. Press Enter on the player.

10. Press Standby and wait 5 seconds.

11. Press Standby again. Your player is now set to the region you requested. If you find some titles do not play on the region 0 setting, you may have to hard select the appropriate region.

Good Luck. Let me know if it works

Tray confused

I have an LG DVD player and recorder model # RC7423W and i have a similar problem, when i open up the disk tray it displays open and the tray opens for 2 seconds only and then closes. when i press the open/close button to open it again it opens and never closes back with a "Disc Error" on display until i close it manually by pushing it back inside.
I cleaned it from dust many times and tried to reset it but no reset button. i just tried to unplug the wire and plug it back.
let me know if there is a way that i can reset the hardware or a solution to my problem. my system is around one year old
