My PS2 wont spin the disk or play it and when ever I turn it on it comes up with Browser or System Configuration


Hello
The problem seems to be your laser, It sounds like it is not reading the disc.
You need to do 1 of 2 things.
1st if you cam give a quick strong blow into the disc tray when it is open, to remove any dirt and dust from the laser area.
2nd If you can get hold of a laser cleaning disc and use this to clean your CD/DVD drive. Just insert the disc and let it play for 5 mins. You can get these discs from almost anywhere, try your local supermarket.
Hope this helps

Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

Post back the version for us.

Hope this helps.

Does not play when disc entered nor when play is selected. (XD-E500KB)


Hello

Push in the plug connected to the "Video Out" jack on the rear of the Dvd to ensure it is connected firmly. Check the connection at the back of the TV as well.

Press the "Source" or "Input" button on the TV remote to verify the television's input is set to the DVD connection.

Press the "open/close" button on the front of the DVD to open the disc tray. Insert and test different DVDs to determine if the problem is with a specific disc, or if the player will not operate.

Eject the DVD tray and insert the DVD laser lens cleaner. Close the tray and wait a few seconds for the cleaning disc to load. Press "Play" on the front control panel to spin the disc through the cleaning cycle.

Remove the cleaning disc, insert a DVD and test playback operation. If the machine still will not play discs, the main receiver unit may require internal repairs best left to an experienced technician.

Discs will not play. After loading for about 1 minute no disc note comes up. Discs have been cleaned and neither dvds or neo discs play.


Hello,

The reason the player wont play the disc is either because the lens is weak or dirty.

Try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner and test with a DVD disc.

If it does not work, then it means the lens is weak and needs replacement.

To replace the lens, open the player with the appropriate screwdriver, open the disc tray, and replace the lens with a new lens, test it with a DVD disc.

Take care.

It wont play dvds!!! Panasonic SC-HT520


It's possible that one of the fuses have blown on the inside. Sony DVD players are known for this (Models DVP 330, 360, 560) and there are many complaints about it. They give the "No Disc" or "C-13" error. I ended up searching the internet and found people that had the same issue. I found the fuse and went to the store to find I had to buy 5 fuses because they were not sold separately. I ended up just soldering the connection knowing that it may break again any time. It works now and has been working for 4+ years since it broke. I'm not a very technical when it comes to electronics. I was just mad that my DVD player broke after the warranty expired. I originally paid $400US for the Sony DVD player. Now I can buy Sony DVD players for under $100US.

Here's a couple of things to check:

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.

DVD stopped playing all DVDs


Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.

Not closing


Hello, with mechanical problems with sophisticated systems of gears etc, the only way thate one can fix it is if you send me a digital picture yourself. To access the inside of the DVD player, you will have to get a handyman to open the DVD player up with a screwdriver, by undoing some screws which hold the cover to the player itself. Then, with the player's circuit boards (The Green/brown Boards with weird components on it) showing, take around 5-6 photo's of the loading tray and the playing tray.(Where the disc is when watching a movie)In the time being, open the layer's cover as instructed before, and look at the inside of the tray for any broken plastic, debris or anything stopping the tray from opening. Good luck!
