Question about Symphonic SD200E

1 Answer

Dvd won't load

All of a sudden, my Symphonic cd/dvd player will not play anything. It makes a kind of clicking sound, and seems to be trying to play, but then I get an error message that says the DVD can't play. Earlier today, the movie would play, but the picture kept freezing , like it was pausing, and then it would start playing again. I went out and bought a disk cleaner and ran it, but now I just get the clicking sound and the error. Now it's making the clicking sound and sounds like it's trying to play a disk even when there is no disk in the device.
What can I do?

    I have the same problem. The player says disc read error after it clicks for a minute trying to read the disc. I remove the lid and cleaned out any dust or other obstructions and still nothing. Email is jjfrenking@msn.com

Open it and check for a broken part in one of the gears that operate the drive. if the unit is under warranty, take it back rather than try to fix it.
either something is in the mechanical portion of the unit, or it is badly worn.
i would suspect a broken part from the noise issue/ clicking sounds.
the read head runs on a track and could be jammed up, unable to run to access the directory of the disc. inspect what you can get to, and hopefully that will be a simple fix.
good luck

The DVD player on my Dell Inspiron-530S won't work, you can hear it like it's trying to load but the play screen never comes up.


no, your dvd drive has gone bad. to check if it is working or not your try to manually open the content of the cd and try copy on the hard drive. if it copies fine then the cd is good if not cd is bad. you might get a error message of bad sector or data randomization.
if it does not open at all the cd drive is bad. raaj_k001@in.com

Toshoba tv/dvd combo. won't play many dvd's. makes clicking sound as it tries to load movie?


Dear Lesley!
It looks, like your DVD lens might get contaminated with dust and/or dirt, which is being picked up off DVDs. Let's try to load music CD, instead or DVD. If it loads well, I will suggest, that your DVD player is at fault and you must give up using it. External basic DVD players are quite inexpensive and easy to connect to your TV. But: if no CD, nor DVD load, the solution might be much simpler: use lens cleaner CD with brushes. good ones might even have a special fluid, which applied to brushes(alcohol based). Just load it into your TV's player and follow audible directions. After couple attempts, your lens should be clean enough to play DVDs. Please, don't try to use any "ear swabs", instead. The lengths is not long enough, plus it may damage load mechanism or get stuck inside. I've seen such a cases lately.
Good luck,
Thank you,
Alex.

On loading a cd in to my C 541 it seems to freeze, indicates 'no disc' and makes a clicking/whirring sound. Will not play anything at that point. This happens with genuine, bought CDs


Hi,

Seems that your player is looking for the index on your CD.
You can try to clean the laser carefully.
If your not familiar to do that, ask somebody.

All players need cleaned from time totime. Do NOT try to clean it with anything other than a CD / DVD lens cleaner. They are available almost everywhere that sellsBlank media. It will clean the lens without scratching or smearing it.

Symphonic Video/DVD player- dvds not able to be read so they don't play

Problem playing DVD's


Dear Kevy, Assuming that the problem was dirty lens, I think that you should try a cleaning disk (preferably the the brand recommended by your player's manufacture, if appropriate.) Was the "clicking" sound a normal one, basing on your previous experience? Make sure that all connections are properly done.
