Dvd player comes up with pre-stop or invalid key

When i place a dvd in the dvd player it reads the disc and either comes up with pre-stop or invalid disc. sometimes it will load a disc as far as the menu and then it will stop and will then say pre-stop or it will say invalid key. cannot get into the set up menu to change any settings but can get into the other menus for either the tv or dvb. help...........it`s brand new and i`m lost.....

I would just return it to where you bought it and exchange for working unit. You probably just got a lemon.

Player reading invalid disc and disc is not spinning


My dual screen dvd player was reading invalid disc and disc was not spinning. Took player completely apart and white gears had dirt in them. This was preventing the player from spinning. Used dust remover and cleaned the whole inside and now it works great.

Is it possible to change the region code to region 3 so we can watch movies from Thailand? No need to switch back as I have another DVD on region 1. Charlie (cleggett1937@aol.com)


You can make this player REGION FREE so all discs operate on it.

Power up, no disk in. Status says READ then INSERT DISC.
Press MENU (status reads invalid key icon)
Press 1 (status reads invalid key icon)
Press 9 Menu is displayed.
Press ENTER on the region, digit turns to "-"
Press 0
Press ENTER again
Press EJECT to clear the special menu.

If you reset (unplug) the player for any reason - this will need to be re-entered.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Coby DVD shows Invalid Disc HELP PLEASE


Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong
