Question about Zenith DVC2550 Multi-disc DVD Player

1 Answer

Unit has power but inoperable

Hi The unit froze while playing a DVD. Eventually had to take apart to retrieve disc by manually operating gears to remove head from disc. Nothing appears to broken or jammed. When unit is turned on, nothing happens, display is lit but does not display the usual info, cannot open disc tray, etc. Local repair shop says too expensive to fix but it seems such a waste to throw it out when it was working perfectly until it froze. I think it's just not initializing properly but need schematic to see how to reset. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: DVD tray will not open.


The disc is dislodged and jamming the drawer. You have to remove the cover, about three, maybe four screws, and then take the disc out to resolve the problem.

SOURCE: Finalizing DVD

If the size of the vhs recording was in 2hr mode, and the size of the recording itself is about 2 hrs, you may not have enough space to finalize. I would use your PC to finalize the disc - I use Dr. Divx, but you can find many finalizing programs out there.

My LG RH4820w DVD player freezes while playing back DVDs. I can can get it to power off and on by holding the "Power" button down. I can then start playing the DVD again, but it eventually...

Sounds like the laser might be going out or dirty. You could try blowing some air in there to try and remove dirt. If that doesn't help then it might be going out.

Try disconnecting the unit from any power source and waiting for at least 10 mins before restoring power. This should reset the units microprocessor so you can resume playing.

DVD player suddenly stopped working

Turn unit off and unplug, then plug back in and keep finger on eject button, and then hit the power button.  Nothing?  Get your phillips screwdriver and remove the shell.  Then retrieve you disc.  While your in there look for signs of a burned capacitor off the ic port chip and take a little glass cleaner and clean the optical lens with a micro fiber cloth.

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock

Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Power off the unit, if it will not power off, unplug the unit for a few minutes, then plug back in.

TruTech Malfunction!

You could try using a laser lens cleaner.

Radio Shack makes one called "Carbonedge"
The RS catalog # is 42-209.

Whatever you do do NOT take the unit apart and try to clean the laser lens by hand. It is easily damaged.

PS2 problem

It's likely the lazer lens is out of alignment or requires replacing. Did your dvd cleaner also have a lens aligning part to it, you normally go through a spoken instruction(go to track 2 etc), as cleaning is sometimes not the only required solution.
