Question about Zenith XBV443 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Shows "reading" but will not change to anything else

Wondering if you can help with the above mode. When DVD inserted, screen indicates "reading" but never changes. Would cleaning help or is it possible that the unit was zapped in a power outage. We have had some here in Myrtle Beach due to construction.

My Samsung laptop model no. is R418. When I insert any disk in the DVD drive, and double click on it it shows a blank screen without any files. It is recognising the cds and also running the auto play but...

You typically get a read error from the operation system if there is a problem reading the disk, so it is likely that the DVD really is blank. Try gently washing and drying (with soft tissue not heat) the DVD. Then try another computer. If it reads the data, the burn a new DVD.

My Panasonic dvd-rv32 player (8 years old) functioned perfectly for last 8 years and I cannot get it to PLAY again. I inserted another DVD tonight (actually 3 DVD'S in case the DVD's were defective) and...

Spindle motor/laser assembly is faulty. This part is not repairable - it has to be replaced by an authorised service centre. It may not be economical via this route, since the unit is not a DVD recorder. H07 is an indication of the above issue. Cheaper to buy a new DVD player or recorder than trying to get the faulty one repaired outside warranty.

I can't play any VCR tapes or DVD's in my Magnavox. Shows E1

It may be a timer setting after a power problem. On page 90 of the manual there are setups for the timers My VCR won't do things without the time set either. The manual may be downloaded here.

Basically get into the setups and set the time and hit enter. I hope this works.
