You can order a new drive from Zenith parts 1-877-993-6484 - the unit information is ...

6721rd021c $100.94 - 2 day shipping

When I get home I'm going to crack the shell on the DVD drive inside the combo set and see if it;s a simple 'off the shelf' RICOH/PANASONIC/MATSUSHITA DVD-R drive tho. If it is, the replacement part (but not the spec. part from Zenith) from Fryes might be faster and cheaper? Not sure yet.

Zenith dvd/vcr model ABV341 DVD WON'T STAY IN TO PLAY...VCR WORKD FINE


If the door does not close either something ( a coin or anything) got inside or there is a issue with the mechanism= alignment or possible bad part in that mechanism that loads and positions the disc.

A suggestion when door opens try to take a quick look inside with a flashlight to see what you can.

Zenith XBR617 shows No Disc after disc is pud in. Am using Memorex DVD-R. Used to work - does not any longer.


This appears to be a bad laser, or dirty laser.
Purchase a cleaning kit from your local electronics store (5 - 10 dollars) and run it through the DVD player. If this does not resolve it you may need to contact an electronics repairman, or use your manufacturer warranty. Though these are mostly throw away technology and maybe more cost effective to replace with an updated model.

Hi Henrybf.
If you have an owners manual try looking in there to help you with the problem that you are having. If you don't have an owners manual you can download one from the Zenith website in PDF/Adobe reader form. You may even be able to purchase replacement parts from them. Hope this helps.

How do you reset the parental control code?


Called Zenith.  They said: turn on the DVD player.  Hit "set-up". Scroll down to the "lock" icon.  Scroll over to "Rating". Scroll over to unlock.  Enter 0000.  Click on Ok.  Enter 0000 again, click Ok again.  Menu should read unlock.  Voila!

Dvd wont play


I wonder if you are trying to play burned dvds, if so that could be a major issue alot of players won't play burned disks, others will only play certain ones. another thing I have had problems with, though i don't know a fix. My samsung sometimes has a similar issue where it flat out will not play certain company dvds.
