TV/DVD combo - no DVD function anymore

We can no longer switch between TV/DVD. The DVD function is gone. My daughter said a message came on the screen saying "Initializing EFRON" or something like that. Any idea how to reset or get the DVD back?

    The dvd player on this Hello Kitty tv/dvd combo is hit or miss, sometimes it will work sometimes it will not. The dvds are fine bc they work on other tvs, but the dvd will be loading then all of sudden the tv will say wrong disc.

    Did anyone get their hello kitty television working, because my daughter's is doing the same thing. We have only had it for 1 month and 1/2. The DVD player worked fine at first, now it keeps saying wrong disc and the disc work fine in every other television. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks

    The same exact thing happened to me! The Effron message came on after I pushed some combination of buttons that the remote/tv didn't like. I haven't figured out what to do yet.

Hello sandiedog,

Tell you daughter, good catch the message she saw was initializing EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory)

This tells me that the computer that controls the DVD might have a problem. It's not that the TV can't switch to DVD its that the DVD is not working or is not able to work due to a memory issue.

The question becomes is this set worth the time that it will take to fix this issue (This is not a reset issue, this is a repair issue).

Here is my suggestion, Take the TV to a repair shop for an estimate (they are usually free, but make sure). Then decide if the cost of the repair is worth it, or if buying another one is the way to go.

I hope this helps and wish you well,
Thank you,

Usually kids tv's in bedrooms collect more dust than downstairs.
The laser probably needs cleaning with a special disc or stripping down and doing properly

I have a JVC TV/DVD combo and the DVD stopped working

This is a common problem with DVDs. You must not leave them idle for such long periods. Second, you must always leave a disc inside the player. It protects the optical lance from dust. There may be some dust deposit on the lance or the loading rubber belt may have gone lose or the spindle motor which rotates the disc might have gone slow. But to solve this problem you will need a qualified technician. Good luck.
