DVD won't play: Err message

We just moved some furniture around and had to unhook our Sanyo DWM-3800 system. We plugged everything back in and the only thing that won't work is the DVD player. The message on the screen says "Reading", then it will say "incorrect disc" and the LED will say "Err" We can't hear any sound, like it should be spinning. Help! We have checked all we know to do.

Trying to connect surround sound sys to directv box. So we can swap from watching movies to watching TV without plugging and unplugging wires..

Depending on your tv and what it has for input, You should be able to run your Directv output directly to your tv input, the same with a DVD. TV would have to have different video options. Then you could connect to surround sound with Digital optical. Your surround system only had one input.

Speaker errror message

The usual fix for "Speaker err" message is to simply unplug the sub-woofer power cord to reset the speaker diagram, plug it back in and remember to "match the negatives to negative, positives to positives" and never try to replace the original speakers with anything but equivilent speakers, adding on more speakers can cause the "Speaker err" message and an inoperative system.
