Hate to say it, but i've found tv/dvd combos to be very bad investments! the dvd units don't seem to last.
if the t-v still works o.k., then get a separate dvd player/recorder, or player. hook it up to the t-v inputs, and, if it is a reliable brand (not super-cheap), it should give good service. i have an older Emerson dvd player, and it's given me good service, so far!
good luck!

I have a 19" daewoo

First make sure that the disc is not the problem and trigger the symptoms. If you've already confirmed that the fault came from the player itself, you must clean the optical lens from fine dirt(dust) and static electricity build-up by playing DVD lens cleaner to the unit. Dirty optical lens will affect the performance of it. DVD lens cleaner kit is widely available at the market and usually cure most kind of symptoms like this.

Put dvd in and it makes clicking noise and doesn't detect it.

The Clicking sound happens, when the lens which reads the cd's,dvd's move off from its original position, this happens when the particular equipment is moved or pushed. In some rare cases, when you insert a very scratched cd, dvd. This can be solved by the particular tv company technicians, or else your warranty will be void.

Try checking whether the lens works perfectly, by playing different kinds of content ( audio cd, mp3, dvd ) etc... If any works, then your lens is working perfect. Later, try cleaning the lens using the " cd lens cleaner kit ". It will be available in any computer accessories related shop.

Thank You.

My AKAI tv/dvd combo - DVD quit working.

Most times it's video read issue such as a dirty lens on the laser.If you smoke in the house or use a fireplace there is a lot of airborn stuff to leave a slight haze on the lens making reading the disk impossible.Try a standard cd or dvd lens cleaner.The on that looks like a cd and uses alcohol on one of the cleaning brushes on the disk you've got a 50 50 chance.

good luck

Dvd not loading

Its been my experience that a lot of times CD/DVD players won't read disk if they need to be cleaned if you get a little bit of dust on that little laser lens that's all it takes. You can buy cleaners. I usually take mine apart and clean them with a Qtip and windex. Sometimes you could even blow them out with compressed air.

My son's camera won't read any disk. It just says "no disk". What might be the cause?

The problem is the Laser lens. The lens is dirty or defectives, and cannot focus anymore on the laser beam reflected by the DVD, to read or record the disk.

You can try using a DVD cleaner disk to clean lens. If that does not work, then the lens pickup must be replaced by a technician.

Trying to clean the lens with a Qtip and isopropyl alcohol may also help, but it may also damage the lens furtherly. If cleaner disk does not work, better calling support.

DVD player not accepting dvds

I would try getting a DVD Lens Cleaner kit from your local store.
Just pop in the cleaning dvd and let it clean.
could be as simple as dust on the lens, could be more serious but i would first try cleaning it.
I hope this helps.
