SOURCE: how to fix a insagnia dvd player

Simply put. Don't ever purchase an Insignia product ever. I Have the same problem with a product I purchased just over 3 months ago, and the Insignia Customer service rep Sandra Larraburu gave no help to me other than the following solutions.
1. Make sure all the cables are plugged in right (Are you serious Sandra?)
2. Try a different DVD (I told her in my original email that I had even been trying different DVD players, so of course that was done)
3. UnPlug it (Is this a solution?)
4. Plug it back in (O....kay)

Then she proceeded to tell me that because the manufacturer's warranty had expired after 90 days, that I was entitled to no resolve.

Note Insignia states this "All of us here at Insignia strive to provide the best quality products
and a
great customer care experience"

If that is the sign of a company striving, I've learned my lesson.
No Insignia for me again.

SOURCE: DMR-EH55 DVD recorder is not able to read DVDs any more

You purchase a dry DVD lens cleaner and put it inside the tray. It will clean it for you. If you take apart the drive to expose the lens, you are actually at risk of making it worse.

Hi,
I had a similar problem with my Yamaha DVD player which just kept displaying "reading, reading and reading"- eject-no disc or disc error. I took it into be repaired and was told it needed a new optical lense-cost $120.00 plus fitting.I was told not viable to fix. Not convinced I had a look on the internet and a suggestion given was to buy a can of Air Spray from **** Smith,$14.00 later and blowing the proverbial out of the inside of the unit-Bingo it works for about an hour and then, away we go again-reading reading reading - eject-no disc. Back to the internet and i found a DVD technician who advised the more often than not the problem is a dirty optical lense, and he has saved 100's from the grave by the following method. The most effective way to clean it is with a cotton wool bud soaked in Isopropyl Alcohol and give it a good rub without damaging it. I got the Isopropyl alcohol for $12.00 a 250 ml bottle from the local chemist and did what was suggested. IT WORKED and is still going- not sure for how long but the bonus is I can use the remainder for rubbing down my tired old body, as after shave or a refresher, in addition to fixing DVD's so not all is lost. It's worth a try considering I was going to throw the Yamaha away. Thanks to the internet and the good people who share their knowledge I am happy again.
Hopefully it will work for you. If not, don't forget the other uses for the alcohol.

Dvd player tell me disk error


this could be aproblem with the lens which is unable to read the disk. this could be caused by accumulation of dirt on the disk sensor. open up the cover of the dvd player to access the lense and clean gently with a lense cleaner(a liquid purposely meant for cleaning the lense) apply this liquid on a soft piece of cloth and clean. close back the cover and power the dvd player it should now be able to load the disk

How can I stop a dvd player from reading non-stop with no disc in player---player is not on lock but refuses to open.


Power off, then disconnect from the wall plug.This resets the dvd. after five ninutes, reconnect the power and start the combo. Should have 'load' on the display, then open the tray of the dvd.When you close the tray, it will try to 'read' a dvd again.

I can't read Asian DVD. My wife arrive from Thailand and want to read her Original DVD. Have you got sollution?


Please check in the manual which region code (which is displayed at back cover of DVD) can be played on your DVD player. If the DVD brought from Thailand carries the same there should not be a problem but if it is different then it cannot be played. This must be the reason of not reading/playing. Solution lies that you should have a multisystem DVD player

Hello,

There are several reasons why your DVD player would stop reading discs.
1. Bad or dirty lens
2. Bad disc spinner motor
3. Busted capacitors on the mailboard

If you can open up your DVD player. Try to check for these problems.

Disc is not working. Error message No disc


Try cleaning both the disk and the lens of the dvd player. Sometimes even a little bit of dust can make your dvd player go ballistic. Brands like Sony,Philips and LG are very sensitive. If anything else fails, you can take it to a repair shop to find out if the lens isn't cracked or the LED isn't responding while trying to read the disk.
