Built-in DVD player

My Insignia 26-inch LCDTV has a built in DVD player on the back, however everytime I insert a disc the dvd player attempts to read the disc and make short noises, then says "No Disc" . Tv works fine. Any suggestions?

Re: Built-in DVD player

Are you trying to play DVD's you've made or copied yourself or new one's you buy from an actual distributor? Because sometimes self-ripped Cd's & DVD's won't play on a LOT of DVD players. Otherwise it's bad DVD player and you should go get it swapped out if it's not too late.

Insignia with built in DVD player, 26 inch bought approximately 2008.DVD player won't read

Sounds like its laser pickup unit has got damaged. Contact any service technician to replace it. Have to take out its mechanism from the set, to replace this part. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Daenyx TV DVD Player Error

You either have a dirty optical pickup or a bad one in the unit--it reads the disc.

They do make a cleaning disc but that is only 50-50 chance(sometimes a disc gets put in with some kind of residue on it)

If bad the built in player will cost more to fix/replace than a cheap external unit connected to rear inputs in place of it--this is the real issue with combo units--usually cheaply made etc.

My husband inserted a dvd into the dvd player of our insignia tv/dvd player. The player kept ejecting the dvd. Now the tv is stuck on dvd mode and will not respond to remote prompts.

#1 TRY AND UNPLUG THE UNIT. I HOPE YOU DIDNT BUY A TV/DVD COMBO.. THESE ARE WICKED $$$ to have fixed.. if it is never ever use the built in player ever again ! buy a stand alone unit from wamart for a few bucks and if it goes bad they fit well in the trash,.. so if it still isnt responding the back of the tv needs to come off WARNING if you break the screen the tv is junk, so sett it on a good flat spot , remove back, locate dvd player and un plug it from the tv.. this will take it out of the circut and with luck give you back control of the tv..

DVD player died during movie. When disc is inserted the player makes soft 'whirring ' sound - but alas no picture/no audio. Tried several different discs. Same result. HELP!!!

Sorry, but it sounds like the DVD player is just gone. You can attempt to have someone repair it, but with the low cost of new DVD players, it probably isn't worth it.

After inserting a disc the dvd goes into the machine, the menue box on the tv screen changes to loading, stays on loading for a short time then pushes the dvd back out. The machine never changes to play.

the dvd player is unable to read the disc. either the disc is scratched and cannot be read or the player needs cleaning. cleaning discs are available pretty much anywhere. sometimes simply blowing into the area when the tray is open can temporarily fix the problem.

My Insignia 26" lcd tv has a built in dvd player that doesn't work.

I would suggest to call the place where you bought it and ask them for an authorized repair center. You TV still under manufacturers warranty.
I could fix it for you. I live in Brampton.
Good Luck.
