Try playing Different DVDs, Second Make sure which Region Disk your playing is it Region 1 or Region 2, If your DVD player is Manufactured in USA it plays only Region 1, If its manufactured in UK it plays only Region 2, If still you face same problem Use Lens Cleaner, If still you face same problem do Reset.
To Reset Dvd player, Remove DVD from Dvd Player, Unplug Power chord from Walloulet for 15minutes so player goes to Defult Factor Settings, Then plug back again Power chord. Turn on Dvd player insert DVD, It should Play or else Claim Warranty.

When I try to play a Blue Ray DVD movie I get the


Use a q tip with a little bit (not dripping) of rubbing alcohol. Eject the tray,unplug, look for laser,you may have to do a little bit of disassembling,but have no fear if you have a digital camera at hand. Use the q tip and gently spin it between your fingers and lightly press against the laser lens. Let the lens dry and look for streaking,if it streaks,youre using too much alcohol. After cleaning,test with an audio cd,then regular dvd,then blu ray. If it works awesome,if it doesn't then the laser is most likely burned out.

My ps3 doesn't play blue ray movies


Hi,

This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue.

You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution.

If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply.

If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

See an example below.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks

Disney dvd player wont play movies (dvd) but plays music (cd) fine


Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.

Try cleaning the DVD lens with a cotton swab moistened with isopropyl alcohol. The DVD lens is what emits the laser from the unit. Let it dry and try again. Also try using a different DVD. Let us know if it worked and don't forget to rate me :)

Stops playing


If the warranty is already expired, and you have some spare time, VERY carefully, remove the screws on your player and look for dust. This could be causing overheating. Also, if it freezes, try feeling for hot spots. A blown fuse could be causing this and you may be throwing away a 2 dollar fix. If this does not help, bring it to your nearest technical assistance provider and tell them your situation.

Disc does not spin/struggles to spin


If the relevant problem only occurs while watching a DVD movie, and everything is fine besides this (i.e. if the device lets you listen to an Audio CD without creating any problem) the problem might be related to the buffer. Because it simply needs larger available space of RAM to use when spinning a DVD compared to a CD. In my opinion, the problem of your DVD player is derived from a buffer underrun state. If I am right, there is nothing to do! Unfortunately, I have to say that if it was a computer , I would easily suggest that you upgrade your RAM. But, sorry..
