The play head of your device known as the ''lens'' is either dirty or bad thats why its selecting disc,try clean it with lens cleaner,if it still does the same thing call your technician,and tell him to change the lens for you.if he does the right thing ,it will work perfectly well.

If you turn the remote over there is a tab at the top push that towards the bottom of the remote and pull up. Once you have the battery cover off replace batteries with two AAA batteries. Click below for a copy of the manual. The battery replacement is on page 9 of 40 in the adobe document.

"Bad Disc" message when reading a disc with JPEG files


Similar Issue happen to one of my client what we have done is putting the JPEG files into folders (Not Subfolder). It worked well however some JPEG images being skipped if the size is unusual. JPEG images will appear as tracks. Hope this will be helpful. If issue persist please post once more. Also let me know if WMA files are being played.

Good Luck

Ongkyo dv-sp302 dvd/cd player,disc tray open

I know the reply is a bit late but I had a similar problem.
The problem is with one IC close to where the motor wire are connected. This particular IC overheats and that was causing a malfuction. So I have installed a small heat sink and now all is well.
Hope this works for you too

All the best - Clayton

Onkyo DV-SP301 DVD player stuck in standy mode

Had an Onkyo DV-SP301 that would only intermittently come out of standby. Found faulty resistor R2 on the power supply board (board ORTP-865), it was nominally 5600 ohms, measured much higher. This after checking most p/s caps! R2 runs warm when unit is in standby, so you may want to replace with a higher power rated resistor. I used same rating but 10 k ohm instead, worked fine then.
