Question about Denon S-301

1 Answer

Wont play CD's

I have had the Denon s-301 for a year and a half. It works great! It plays my ipod and DVD's with no problem. I tried playing a music CD and it will not play. I tried another music CD. Nothing PLAYS. i get the zero's on the display, push play and I get the "circle with the strike through" symbol. As if pushing play is an invalid entry. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Wont play a disc. It will stay in Loading mode for minutes and then read "No Disc"

Try to play a music on cd instead of playing dvd. It it plays keep playing until playey got hot and drive off moisture on circuit. Let it cool down then try play dvd. If it can play severy dvd in sequence, then your unit is repaired. Keep using it to avoid condensation inside the dvd player.

I have a Denon DVD-1920 DVD/CD player that is less than 18 months old. It has developed a problem whereby it refuses to play any DVD through to completion. It will play for a short period of time and then...

Yes, the unit must be opened to access the lens. Open up the top and you should be able to get at the optical assembly. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Try a DVD. If the problem persists, try playing a music CD. If the music CD plays but the DVD does not, the optics are starting to fail and should be replaced.
