Aftermarket dvd/mp3 player won't load discs

My 2007 Saturn Outlook ceiling mounted dvd system will not load a dvd movie. There was no manual when I bought the car on a trade-in. There is also no model number, etc....only the word "Advent" to identify the make of the player. When we put in a dvd, it says LOADING then goes black. Also, I do not know why the sound only works through headphones. A speaker is visible on the top of opened unit.

SOURCE: I bought a 2007 GMC

These types of dvd's are custom installs so the brand and model pf the player would have helped.
On them the sound is sent in 3 ways:
1 - usually there is a cable coming from its audio output connections to the AUX input of the radio. You will have to check the player to see if one was installed; if it has you must make sure the radio is set to use the AUX entry as a source and that the cable connecting them is intact. For testing purposes you should connect a separate amplifier to the player thru these output connectors to see if you get a sound; if you don't then the defect is in the player. Check the audio settings, if they are ok then the defect is hardware and the player will have to be taken to a repair shop.
2 - if the guy that installed it didn't wanted to bother with the hassle of removing the head liner to draw the audio wore then it has most likely just set the connection thru the FM modulator: the player has a modulator that transmits the sound thru the FM radio band; to listen to it all you need to do is to tune it at the frequency of the modulator - usually between 88 and 89.5 MHz.
3 - the headphones - very simple devices. The only thing you can check here are the settings from the player.

Lg rc797t dvd drawer will not close consistently

I have a Compaq Presario desktop running XP Media Center. The DVD tray would open on power up, and kept openinig when pushed shut.

I discovered that the tray would frequently remain closed when I held open the flap (the flap with the open button). A few days after discovering this, I got to add some more tracks to my MP3 player - I only mention this intermediate stage in case it is material in curing the problem, as the next thing that happened was a power failure whilst the PC was on. Since then, the CD/DVD drive has behaved perfectly. I did have a temporary problem with AVG INternet Security being unable to load the necessary DLLs to run correctly in MS Outlook 2003, even complaining of a corrupt installation, but this dissappeared after a proper restart and AVG update.

Compaq users: try holding the flap open when you attempt to close the tray.
Generally: with PC running and all applications closed, switch the power off at the wall socket.

Double-check your DVD player's user manual/spec sheet to see if it plays Mp3 format files at all. Find out, specifically what kind it can read.

If your Mp3 disc is a DATA CD instead of an AUDIO CD, then nothing besides a computer is going to play it.
