The player will read dvd but will not play cd

Richard: This is what said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    Hi I have put a cd into the changer but now cannot eject the cd, the stereo reads error 99 please advise

    The CD, when inserted, became either wedged or not seated properly and the sensors dont know how to respond. Here are the codes for Kenwood.
    Changer Error Codes
    • E-00: Poor Cable connection.
    • E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer.
    • E-02: No Disc in magazine.
    • E-03: CD does not have selected track number.
    • E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable.
    • E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically.
    • E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.

    If you have a steady hand... carfully unscrew and open up the unit just far enough so you can either pull, or nudge the CD tray enough for the CD to be seated in the tray properly...
    Good luck...

    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.

    My Blu-Ray BDP1590 Samsung freezes at the title screen. After telling me "No Disc" as it has no disc, it says "load" on the player and will not respond from the intro screen where it gives the...

    Try to reset system at Samsung support. To do this you just take disc out, hold the FF button down on unit until you see "reset" then select language. Turn system off then hold power button for 15 sec. Then restart system. As far as Netflix you got to got to system, determine if you are using wireless or cable. You have to set this yourself.

    You should also update your firmware here at
    You will see a support tab, which has your download on it. I would try the CD based download first.Download the file, unzip it, and burn it onto a CD. Then, with the unit off, and unplugged, plug it in, open the drawer and insert the disk. Close the drawer and see if it will read the new files. If not, then try the same procedure on the USB option.

    Thank you!

    Insignia blu-ray player only plays music cd'

    I would need to know which Insignia Blu Ray player you have to get a better idea of what potential problems you may be experiencing. Model number should be NS-XXXXXXX.

    It sounds like the loader is failing, the lens is scratched/dirty, or the firmware isn't performing properly.


    Try using a Blu-Ray cleaning kit to clean the lens. Don't use a CD or DVD cleaner kit since these are too harsh for the Blu-Ray lens.

    Try updating the firmware to the latest version by going to and searching for your model number. Updates allow for more functionality of your player as well as greater compatibility with Blu-Ray discs and other disc formats.

    Hope this helps!

    As a CD player - shuffle/random?

    The point of buying a 5 disc CD/DVD player is that you can let the machine play randomly through all 5 CD . Where is that button ?

    Remove any discs from the unit. Make sure your tv is on the blue screen. It should say "Progressive Scan Mode"....After removing the disc(s) from the disc changer, close the changer, press and hold the stop button on the unit, not the remote, for 5 seconds or more and it will reset to normal playing mode. Progressive Scan is typically only for TVs that use Progressive Scan....most normal TVs do not use progressive scan mode. Hope this helps...It worked for me!!!!

    Locked dvd tray.

    To unlock, manually press and HOLD the open/close button & the stop button simultaneously, and HOLD them both down until the lock picture disappears.   The DVD will eject when you press the open/close button. 


    To lock the DVD inside the machine, repeat the same step, and it will lock it inside.
