Re: all dvds skips evan brand new ones

Return the unit to the store which you purchased it from. You have an internal problem with the scanner (led) You can first try to clean the led this could be your problem. They sell lens cleaning dvd disks. try it, you have nothing to loose. If this does not work, just bring it back.

Pioneer xv-hdt520 stereo dvd/cd player cant get it to play cd,s works fine on the dvd part of it and all discs are read by the same reader it just tries to start then boots the cd out no matter which...

I would guess this model is over two years old. not sure how much you paid, but target sells a decent surround sound blue ray system for just under 300. i got it. it works great, streams netflix movies an even has an internet radio system in it.

if you dont wanna do that, and have made sure that you have tried brand new cds, another option is to play cds on a cheap cd player hooked into your surround sound. it can go in any input on the back with an adaptor you can buy at radio shack, or many of them have an input in the front.

they used to make a cd lens cleaner, not sure if they still exist. it was a tiny brush hooked onto a cd that you put in and it cleaned up the lens.

bottom line is that it makes little to no sense to me that it would play dvds and not cds. i would assume that they both use the same lens to read the device.

No matter what i put in for a DVD, brand new, it skips constantly. i've put in a cleaner to clean the lens and it took abut a hr to get the dvd player to read the disc, kept saying NO DISC when clearly...

The cleaner cds are worthless and do nothing, infact I have seen damage to laser lenses from these cleaners. They should not even be sold. Your answer is to go to the tips and read my tip on proper cleaning of CDs and DVDs. The url is I just posted this today. Let me know if it helps you.

JVC TH-C30 dvd movies skip

Check your formatting on the DVD recorder, you need to finalize the disk to be playable on "any" player. That should solve the issue. Your JVC is looking for specific code as it reads the disc, when it's missing or not understood by your JVC it will either stop play or skip over it's interperated missing info. Hope this helps

Dvd player wont play movies recorded by my friends. what is the problem?

Not all DVD players can play DVDR or DVDRW discs (writable DVDs) these players are however very inexpensive. Usually the ones that say they will play windows media file will work, but not always. See if you can find one that says it will play DVDR or DVDRW discs.

Lg lht854 dvd playback goes blank constantly while watching dvds

All you need to do is set the unit to play back DVDs at 480P instead of auto. That's what I did and the problem has gone away.

Movie freezes, skips.

Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
