DVD player stops working after a scratch on dvd

Hi there,
I've got an Acoustic Solutions DVD/TV/VHS combi. It works well but if there is a scratch on a DVD it sometimes just keeps trying to load the DVD and all I get is the 'loading' sign showing. I've tried switching it to standby, switching it off at the wall for over an hour and putting in other DVDs which I know work. I hear the DVD trying to load but no joy. It also often takes aaaages to follow an 'eject' command.

It is almost as if the player has gone in a 'huff'!

It sounds like the unit needs a good cleaning and can be done in a couple of ways which should both be done so that the laser is clear. First off I would get a can of compressed air that computer techs use to blow dirt and debri free of their units. This air is clean and under pressure and is directed though a tiny tube to get into small places. Make sure the unit is unplugged and use short bursts of air not long one, because you might get some water vapor as the air is leaving the tube at high pressure. Next get a cd / dvd cleaning cd available anywhere they sell cds, etc. Let this run and it will let you know when it has completely cleaned the laser and other components associated with the disc reading sequence. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

Samsung DVD-V3650 Combo Player ejects most videotapes without playing them


You can only compensate for minor scratches. As for the vcr side the rollers could be dirty or the brake worn out. The tensioner may be too sensitive as well. Basically the mechanism probably needs servicing.

Tracking controls for VHS should have no effect on the DVD player. If a pre-recorded DVD is distorting the picture, along with the VHS, then there's either something wrong with the TV it's played on, or the connection, between the two. Or there is a fault in the electronics of the VHS/DVD combi that deals with the picture.

You may have to resort to disassembly to get access to the drive. If the DVD will not eject, it is difficult to retrieve it.

Yes! you are right, this almost sounds like a captions problem, check the DVD/VCR Combo menu, if it has captions turn it off using your remote.

Hello, I want to buy a Toshiba RDXV-60 Combi VHS/DVD Recorder in the United Kingdom and use it in Greece. Can you tell me if it will work here in Greece?


Hello,
Yes, that is true. Some UK electronic's sound is different from other regions. There was a TV my friend bought, it's from UK the TV didn't bring out sound. The sound had to be converted before it worked. Electronics repairers has a way of converting the sound to work with your region.
So I would advise you shouldn't buy the Toshiba RDXV-60 Combi VHS/DVD Recorder because if you do, you are taking a risk.
When you get to Greece you can get a Toshiba RDXV-60 Combi VHS/DVD Recorder.
I hope this is clear.
Good luck.

If you select the HDMI channel to watch a dvd does it do it then, if not disconnect both ends of the scart lead and reconnect or replace. If the scart lead is not in properly this could happen, when you switch on the player and play a disc your tv will automatically switch to the AV/Scart channel, but you are better off manually turning the TV over to the HDMI Hi-Def channel for DVD.
